The Build – Persona 4 Golden Yukiko Skills
By the end of the game, the build you’re going to most likely want on Yukiko, out of all her normal leveling skills, her available social link skills and her optional bike skills, is this:
|Burning Petals||Fire Amp|
|Mind Charge||Fire Boost|
This is a pretty standard build for Yukiko. You can replace either Agidyne or Fire Boost with Marakunda (and I’d recommend that you do) depending on what you’re going to do with her. If you plan to use a Kagatsuchi Vow (+50% fire damage) on her, you’ll have higher damage potential, but no reason to have Fire Boost, since bonus damage only stacks up to 100%.
As far as Agidyne vs Marakunda, ultimately you only really need Burning Petals. The only reason you’ll find that you ever use Agidyne once you have Burning Petals available to you is to conserve SP, but Yukiko’s SP pool is bigger than everyone else’s and running out of SP on her is very rare.
Because Marakunda is so useful, I would recommend that you pick one of those two skills and replace them. You could also replace Samarecarm which you’ll probably find you don’t get much use out of.

Bike Skills – Persona 4 Golden Yukiko Skills
These are the Bike Skills available to Yukiko in Persona 4 Golden. For more information on Bike Skills, check the Persona 4 Golden Bike Skills Guide.
|Valiant Dance||1||Low chance of inflicting Rage on all enemies|
|Marakunda||2||Lowers defense for all enemies|
|Red Wall||3||Increases fire resistance for one ally|
|Spirit Drain||4||Drains 30 SP from an enemy|
|Mind Charge||5||Next spell deals 2.5x damage|
In Persona 4 Golden Yukiko has a few decent skills out of her Bike Skill options. First of all, you’re definitely going to want to take Yukiko on 5 bike rides in order to unlock Mind Charge. Mind Charge is a tremendous upgrade to Yukiko’s damage output no matter where you are in the game. You should get it as soon as possible.
There’s also a case to be made for keeping Marakunda. Because Yukiko doesn’t have that much competition in her skillset, it’s not hard to find a slot to fit in Marakunda, and it’s always nice to have this skill available to you in order to increase your entire team’s damage potential against bosses. If you don’t have this skill on another party member that you regularly use, you’d be smart to pick it up on Yukiko.
Unique Skill – Persona 4 Golden Yukiko Skills
Each character’s unique skill is earned when they receive their 3rd Tier Persona. This happens in January when you spend an afternoon hanging out with a party member that has already achieved its 2nd Tier Persona by reaching their level 10 Social Link.
Yukiko’s unique skill is Burning Petals, which deals severe fire damage to all enemies. It’s a direct upgrade to her Maragidyne spell, and there’s no reason not to replace Maragidyne with it. It’s one of the reasons Yukiko is far and away the best mage in Persona 4 Golden.
