Yukio is a Japanese assassin sent to bring Wolverine to Japan to meet an old friend whom Logan saved back when the atomic bomb exploded on Nagasaki. After the death of Yashida, she fights with Wolverine and Kenuichio Harada fighting the Yakuza ninjas who kidnapped Mariko.
Yukio then has a vision of Logan dying with blood everywhere and his heart in his hand not beating. She goes to warn him but is too late as Mariko is captured by the Yakuza who is revealed to be hired by Mariko's fiance and the corrupt Chief of Justice Norubo Mori who reveals that Shingen has hired the kidnapping.
Logan and Yukio arrive at Yashida Corporation where Wolverine finds the parasite on his heart, similar to the one of Yashida's. He then starts to extract it where Shingen enters with Yukio defending Logan. Logan dies in the process but has his healing ability back and revives killing Shingen. Yukio and Logan then follow Harada and Viper to the research center to find Mariko where Logan is attacked by Harada and the ninja clan.
After Logan is put in a machine made by Viper, Yukio comes to defend Logan and fights Viper as he fights Yashida. Yukio kills Viper by hanging her.
