- Mischievous protector and forest spirit. - Mallhalla purchase description
As the story goes...
- "Hattori, do you remember the tale of the wise fox spirit and her giant magical hammer? Yeah, ME NEITHER!" - Koji after a beat down from a newcomer to the Grand Tournament
Any Valkyrie could see that the blind seamstress was a centuries-old fox spirit in disguise. Only the half-Valkyrie saw a great Valhallan.
From time immemorial the Japanese village of Aoku sat at peace on the edge of the great northern forest. Then the forest changed. The winters grew bitter, and the cold seemed to flow out of the forest itself. From the forest too came great wolves - first in ones and twos and then in great packs. The forest came to be called Kiba, The Fang, and the villagers feared.
To villagers, Yumiko, the blind seamstress, was a happy soul - afraid of dogs and roused to anger only by shoddy needlework. None ever knew that, at the age of 537, she picked up a bow for the first time and went to war with the monsters of the Kiba.
The first winter, she rescued a toddler from a wandering wolf, the second winter she slew a pack of wolves to protect the hibernating Tororu. Year after year, the assault grew, and so did her skill. By the twenty-fifth year, she had defeated a Tengu army, slain a dragon, and realized she must confront this mystery at its source.
Weary but determined, she traveled deep into the woods. There she fought the witch Ukionna and broke the bond between Yumiko's world and the twisted forest corrupting her land. In the final moments of the battle, a valkyrie appeared. Without a word, Yumiko leapt on the flying horse and went happily to sleep.
Yumiko is happy to fight in the tournament, while she senses that she has one more great deed to accomplish, but waits patiently. Yumiko recoils at the sight of Mordex, tinkers with Scarlet in her workshop, and has a quiet bond with the enigmatic Asuri.
"Let me tell you the tale of the blind seamstress and the thousand wolves." - Yumiko
|Neutral||Yumiko transforms into a bolt of ghostly energy and flies diagonally upwards for a long range attack that finishes with a small explosion. Any enemies caught in the fire while its travelling are pulled along, and sent flying with the final burst.|
|Once again, Yumiko transforms into a bolt of ghostly energy – but this time starts slightly slower and flies straight forward along the ground. In a similar fashion, the attack ends with a small explosion that sends enemies flying.|
|↓||Yumiko reveals her many tails as she charges this attack, then leaps backward, littering the ground where she was standing with three flaming motes of ghostly energy that linger for several moments. Opponents touching these flaming motes take damage and are pulled towards the rearmost mote.|
|Neutral||Yumiko shows her tails before vaulting into the air, performing a double somersault with hammer extended. Anyone struck with by the hammer is hooked and subsequently thrown downwards after the second spin.|
|Yumiko dashes a fair distance forward and swings both the hammer and tails around her in a low, wide sweep, striking enemies both in front and behind her ending position.|
|↓||Revealing a single tail, Yumiko flaps it up in an arc before her, leaving three burning motes of foxfire that linger in the air in a tight arc. Targets touching any of the motes take damage and is stunned and dragged towards the topmost mote.|

- It is implied in several places that Yumiko is blind. If this is true, it would make Yumiko the first disabled Legend on the roster.
- Yumiko is the third Japanese themed legend on the roster, after Hattori and Koji.
- Her design is strongly reminiscent of Kon, also a fox spirit from manga and anime series Tokyo Ravens.
- Yumiko's name is directly comprised of the words Yumi, Japanese for Bow, and 'Ko', Japanese for Child. Her name can therefore be 'Yumiko', 'Bow Child', or even '弓子'.
