Yukio's first name means 幸 (yuki) meaning "luck, fortune, happiness" combined with 男 (o) or 雄 (o) both meaning "man, male", translates as "Happy Man" ,while his last name "Taker" is a reversed "Tarek".
Yukio has a cunning and flitry character in the school, claming himself as "Girls' love angel", he's also playful, taking some things less serious than he should. However, he displays a clear annoyance to antics that push him to at his wit's end
As Yukio lives in the parallel Neighbourhood to Yurie's they both end up meeting at the Neighbourhoods' end, and so he bumps into an annoyed Yurie talking to Hinn. Because Yurie is too short, at first, he did not notice her, then he looked down, commenting that he bumped into a little girl, Irriated by "Little girl", Yurie steps on his foot with a brute force and leaving him yelling in pain, but that was short lived when he noticed Yurie talking to herself as if she's talking to someone (he seemingly cannot see Hinn), later, when Kishi Daishi asked him to bring him Yurie's Evolute Monster, and pretend to be her fan, as soon as he groped her seeking for her Extra Deck (touching her rear) she hits him with her head, then later with her foot when he called her out for her lack of femininity. He meets her later in front of the school , and tries to talk down to her suggesting that if she duels him, he gets to see the Evolute Summon (deep down, he sees that sending the data is more efficient than stealing the actual card), however, scared of the face-down card, Yurie immediately ends her turn, thus he gets disappointed, and proceeds to defeat her, as per agreeement, since Yukio won, Yurie has to become his friend and lessen her violence towards him.
Initially, Yukio's relationship with Yurie wasn't as notable as he intially did not show any interest in her, until he packed a deal with Kishi Daishi.
