Public Service Club Member
Yukino Yukinoshita (雪ノ下 雪乃, Yukinoshita Yukino) is the leader of the Service Club. She was the lone member until Hachiman Hikigaya joined her. Furthermore, she is the only one who remembers that it was her car that had hit Hikigaya (besides Hikigaya and Yui) when he saved Yui's dog, on the first day of school.
Yukino is a beautiful girl with waist-length black hair which is tied with two red ribbons by each shoulder, and angular blue eyes. She changed her hairstyle into twin tails when she went out with Hachiman and Komachi (but ended up with just Yukino and Hachiman) to buy a birthday present for Yui. She is seen as flat chested compared to most of the other female characters however, she remains as beautiful.
Yukino is mostly seen wearing her school uniform, which consists of a black blazer with a white shirt underneath it, a red ribbon tie, a plaid skirt, and black stockings.
When Yukino and Hachiman were having their usual conversation in the Service Club room, Yui comes and explains she requested the Service Club to help her make homemade cookies. In the home economics room, Yukino and Yui wear aprons when Yukino teaches Yui how to make the cookies. Besides Yukino and Yui, Shizuka and Komachi are also seen wearing aprons in Komachi's cooking contest in the OVA (anime).
School Uniform (Without Blazer) + Apron
Yukino wore this tennis attire when having a double tennis match (replacing Yui who sprained her ankle) with Hachiman as her partner against Hayato and Fumiko to get the right of using the tennis court to help Saika practice.
After hearing Taishi's story about her sister, Yukino accepts his worry as a request for the Service Club to find out about Saki's problem. Yukino wore this maid uniform in a local maid cafe in Chiba to discover whether Saki works at the cafe or not, in which Saki was not.
Yukino wore this dress after the Service Club discovered that Saki works nights in the cafe on the top floor of the Royal Okura Hotel.
Casual ClothesYukino wore this when she went out with Hachiman and Komachi (but ended up with only Yukino and Hachiman) to buy a birthday present for Yui.
Yukino tried out this apron to find a suitable one for Yui as a birthday present. She ends up buying this apron for herself.
Casual Clothes + Apron
SwimsuitYukino appears in her 'swimsuit' by the riverbank (At some point when helping out with summer camp at the Chiba Mura Park with other Service Club members and Hayama's group).
In order to solve Rumi's issue with her friends, Hachiman makes a plan to shatter the relationship between the other girls in Rumi's group during the test of courage. Yukino wears this kimono and takes the role of 'snow woman' in that test of courage.
P.E. UniformYukino wears this during the Soubu High School Sports Festival. Meguri requested the Service Club make the Sports Festival merrier.
Yukino wore this outfit in an event created by Yoshiteru based on the Battle of Kōnodai during the Sports Festival. Yukino and her team won this match. It seems to be a parody of one of Saber's alternate outfits from "Fate/Unlimited Codes" called "Saber Lily" or Eucliwood Hellsycthe's armor from "Kore wa Zombie desu ka".
Artificial Armored Outfit
Bridal DressYukino wore this dress to compete in Komachi's bridal dress contest to find the best bride as a reference for the magazine that promote "Love and Marriage" to teenagers.
She is smart and beautiful, and comes from a wealthy family, but is nicknamed the "Ice-Cold Beauty" because of her icy personality. Yukino has a tendency to be very blunt and can easily point out faults to other people where normally it would be very hard to. Yukino believes that it is the duty of the "exceptional" (a.k.a. herself) to help the less fortunate. Her personality can be seen as excceedingly haughty to some people including Hachiman. Despite this she is still capable of understanding other people and being kind and compassionate. On a more personal level, she hates to be pointed out to have a smaller chest than other female characters. Her main driving force is her wish to surpass her sister going as far as to do what her sister had done in order to show that she could do just as well.
She is good in cooking which was shown when she was teaching Yui to make cookies, as well as cooking Paella as shown in the OVA. She is also good in sports but has no confidence in her stamina (Refer episode 3 anime). She also can see through people's personality (Refer episode 4 anime) and is always honest with her words though they are sometimes kind of harsh. In addition, she is a good leader as seen when she successfully handled the festival commitee in Sagami's stead.
Hachiman nicknames Yukino "Ice-cold Beauty" for her personality from the start. While Yukino does not recognize Hachiman as a friend, she acknowledges him as an acquaintance. Yukino recognizes Hachiman from the car accident, but lied about it when Hachiman joined the service club; pretending to not know him. Hachiman distances himself from Yukino after realizing this. During the course of the series, the relationship between the two seem to soften slowly. Yukino starts to warm up to Hachiman and even manages to eventually smile at him. Although she still does not recognize him as a friend, she starts to see Hachiman for who he is and has somewhat started to develop a possible crush on him but this is somehow restrained as in the novel, it is strongly hinted that she realizes about Yui's feelings toward Hachiman.
In chapter 6 volume 9 of the novel, it shows that Yukino's icy behavior is being torn down. She was about to burst to tears when Hachiman said that what he wants is "something genuine (implying relationships and feelings)". For the first time in her life Yukinoshita feels very emotional.
It is hinted that she has started to lose her "ice queen" personality especially to Hachiman but only when they are alone. She also shows her sweetness when she laughs and smiles to Hachiman after she proposed that she wanted Hachiman help her someday.
Even with Yukino's cold and brash personality, Yui still sees the latter as a dependable friend - affectionately calling her "Yukinon" and sometimes hugging the latter when feeling thankful toward her. Over time Yukino starts to think of her as a friend.
Hayama Hayato is the son of the legal adviser of Yukino's father and a former gradeschool classmate as well.
Meguri Shiromeguri and Hayama Hayato have shown concern for Yukino's well-being when she attempts to take on the majority of the work for the cultural festival. In the past, Hayato failed to protect Yukino when she was bullied/ostracized.
