Biography

History

Young Yoko

Yoko as the leader of the "Sirens".

In her youth, Yoko was the leader of a female biker gang called the "Sirens" (the "Maiami Queens" in the Japanese version), as "Loco Yoko" and the "Queen of the Sirens" ("Shooting Star Yoko" in the Japanese version). At one point, one of her teammates was held hostage by a member of a rival gang. Yusho Sakaki stepped in and saved her. Yoko was touched by Yusho's ability to end fights peacefully without violence and developed feelings for Yusho.[1] The two of them eventually got married and had a son, Yuya Sakaki, together. Through Yusho, Yoko also befriended Skip Boyle.

When Yusho did not show up for his Duel against The Sledgehammer, Yuya ran to the bottom of the stands and challenged Sledgehammer to a Duel in his father's stead. Yoko pulled Yuya away as he continued to protest.[3]

Pre-Arc League Championship

Yoko showed up during Yuya's Duel against The Sledgehammer. She told Skip, Zuzu and Gong about Yuya's behavior: he had acted like a clown to cope with Yusho's disappearance and reinvented himself while Dueling. She watched the rest of the Duel with the three, and was proud of her son when he won.[3][8]

Yoko eventually invited Sora to stay at the Sakaki residence, to Yuya's annoyance. She prepared breakfast for the two boys, but she was taken in by Sora's cuteness after he called her Yuya's older sister rather than his mother, causing her to give Yuya's food to him.[4]

After the events involving between You Show Duel School and LID, Yoko arrived to watch Yuya's Duel against Skip, but left early before the Duel could end.[9]

Yoko made an appearance during Yuya's Duel with Reed Pepper. Having failed to make one of his recipes due to its complexity, Yoko converted it into a pancake sandwich, which infuriated Reed. She gave her creation to Yuya, who struggled with the Duel as he was too hungry to continue, and smiled as he was re-energized and won the Duel.[5]

Yoko, Skip, Zuzu, Allie, Frederick, Tate, and Nico Smiley were spectators during Yuya's Duel with Gong.[10][11]

After Zarc's defeat and the Standard Dimension being reborn into the "Pendulum Dimension", Yoko had lost her memories of Zuzu and the events involving people from other dimensions. She prepared breakfast for Yuya and wondered why he was in a hurry when it was Sunday. She told yelled at him for making a mess when he was talking with food in mouth. She was present during the Battle Royal with Allie, Frederick, and Tate. When Moon Shadow urged everybody to remember the Arc League Championship, Yoko began to recall the events especially Reed being part of it.[12]
