Yukari Minamida is the main character of Liar Liar, it's Sequel, and soon to be Remake.
Yukari has a youthful appearance with a fair complexion and light purple eyes. As she is short, her height is often joked about. She has long, dark mint hair pulled up into straightened pigtails to match her tented bangs and short forelocks. She is often depicted with a fanged tooth and has heart-shaped eyebrows.
In the first game Yukari wears the lavender and white school uniform, accented with pink. In the second game she switches to the brown, darker themed uniform of her new school.
Matching that of her appearance, Yukari displays an innocent- yet cheeky demeanor. She is mischevious with her childish mentality to the point of being unaware why it would be wrong to openly discuss murdering someone. Even when killing she remains perky, but she has a short temper and gets bored fairly quick.
She is very affectionate with those she loves, but as shown in the games, she has trouble expressing it properly.
In the sequel game she appears to be slightly more serious.
Several weeks prior to the game starting, Yukari caught her boyfriend with her younger sister. He proclaimed to only love her and Yukari confronted them. Minami refused to believe her and told her off, causing Yukari to seek revenge against the boyfriend.
Since the last games events ended, Yukari started to date Miho. They have murdered ten more people but claim it was justified since Miho somehow attracts weird guys. They attend different schools now, but hang out whenever they can.
Yukari is normally depicted to wield a knife.
Miho Sonoda - Yukari is convinced Miho is just as messed up as she is, which allows them to bond and grow to realize they have feelings for each other. Both of them see no harm in resorting to murder.
Minami - Her sister that she adores in her own, twisted way. Their relationship is implied to be sour, as Minami doesn't trust her and finds Yukari to be delusional. While she appears to be younger, her personality is more mature and she looks older. She was suspicious of Yukari since the boyfriend disappeared in the first game, and later joins Akira to confront her. In the true ending of the sequel, it is implied that Minami is a sense of morality for Yukari, and without her, she would snap.
Boyfriend - While Yukari claims they were dating, its impossible to tell if they were. Not only because of Minami calling her delusional, but because of the games title itself and the fact she shows attraction towards girls, rather than boys. From what was shown he seemed to be a good guy, devoted to Minami and a good friend of Tanaka.
Tanaka - Yukari is indifferent with him as an ex-boyfriend from the past. She holds to grudges against him and claims he was simply on the scene at the wrong time. In the sequal game she shows anxiety and frustration finding him alive, but got along with him when she wasn't worrying.
Akira - A popular schoolmate admired by everyone for being perfect, handsome, good with sports, and kind. Yukari feels nothing for him- which was what caused him to grow attached to her and want her for his own.
Nao - A girl in the sequel who only appears in the true route. She is tomboyish and has known Yukari since elementary school and they appear to have a close friendship. Yukari asks Nao to date her or risk being killed, but when Nao refuses she accepts this decision.
Should the Player make bad decisions, Yukari's life could be put on the line in both games.
Yukari can be killed on two routes.
In one ending she is confronted by the injured Tanaka after cornering the boyfriend. If she killed Miho earlier nobody is there to prevent Tanaka from killing her instead. In one swift movement Yukari's final thoughts are wondering where the blood is coming from and why Tanaka isn't dead.
In the other Route, Yukari decides to trust Wakabayshi when he claims he hasn't done anything wrong, considering she didn't have proof that Miho was being truthful. Then, he asks her for help rehearsing for an upcoming school production and she agrees, only for him to confront her in a locked room. As Yukari lies and claims not to know anything, he kills her to keep her out of the way, then kills Miho shortly after he reveals what he did to her. It is implied he kills himself after.
In this game, Yukari can be killed several ways, mainly due to Akira.
The earliest death occurs if Yukari stumbles upon Akira and Tanaka. Akira will take him hostage and when Yukari tries to help him Akira slices her neck with a pair of scissors- but just enough to break the skin. Free, Tanaka grabs Yukari and leads her to safety in another classroom to hide. But Akira gets the door open and finishes them off.
If Yukari agrees to kill Tanaka, Akira knocks her out to take her back to his place. As she awakens, he describes his plans to mutilate her and keep her as a puppet for him to play with.
In one of the last Routes of the game, Minami will kill Yukari after Tanaka confronts her and informs her of what happened. However, Minami notes that Yukari could have easily dodged the attack and wonders why she didn't. As she dies, Yukari explains that she doesn't mind because of her love for her sister.
On another Route, Yukari is killed by Minami after she tries to save her from Akira at the end of the game, unaware that it was a trap. Miho and Tanaka were killed shortly after, possibly for witnessing this.
- In the true route of the sequel game, Yukari is revealed to collect the heads of her victims.
- It was also revealed that Yukari kills everyone she falls for and has done this since she was little.
- Yukari's overly long sleeves are thought to be that way to make her look cuter. But in reality this is to cover a mild skin disease she has on her hands.
