Yumi (Sayaka in Japan) is a female 4th grader of the Ape Escape series who debuted in Ape Escape 3 as one of the two playable characters, the other being Kei. She is Kei's twin sibling, being much more serious and focused between the two. She's a cheerful girl with an affinity for things feminine and pink and has a passion for singing, which seemed to have caught the attention of certain monkeys, much to Monkey Pink's dismay. Her favorite subjects are English (Japanese in Japan) and Music.
