Yumiyacha (ユミヤッチャ) is a Yumipon Uberhero first introduced in Patapon 3. Yumiyacha is one of the three parent classes, the others being Taterazay and Yarida; the player chooses one of them at the beginning of Patapon 3, each one having separate abilities and attributes.
Yumiyacha sports a green mask. His default hairstyle is a long flick with 8 spikes on its top tail. His default cape color is yellow green. He wields bows.
Yumiyacha is revived by Silver Hoshipon and the Almighty, once you play as him you march toward the sound of the Pata Drum where you find Hatapon praying to the Almighty for help, he joins you and you march back towards your petrified Patapon comrades where Silver Hoshipon will revive three Patapon warriors, Ton Yaripon, Chin Tatepon and Kan Yumipon and he drops Ka-ching on the way. Hatapon will take Meden (still petrified) on the way. Once you cross the flag post, you have finished the level.
Yumiyacha can use:
- Bows from unlocking.
- Crossbows from level 5.
Yumiyacha is level 1 when he is unlocked.
Getting Yumiyacha to level 3 unlocks Wondabarappa.
Getting Yumiyacha to level 5 unlocks Pingrek.

Yumiyacha will shoot flaming arrows that will fall in different places, so he can do a lot of damage all over the place. The number of shots Yumiyacha does is equivalent to its highest unlocked Quickshot ability added by three. For example, if Yumiyacha has gained access to Quickshot 3, he'll shoot three arrows into the sky and disappear for a moment. When it reappears, six arrows appear to deal damage on structures or foes. These arrows pierce through buildings and enemies.

- When choosing a Hero at the start of the game, Yumiyacha is a risky choice, especially for new players. While his description makes him sound appealing he needs much more time to develop compared to the incredible offense and customizability of Yarida or the bulky tanking of Taterazay. Yumiyacha is more of a long-run class compared to the former.
- Yumiyacha's Class Tree presents a lot of interesting classes such as Jamsch and Cannogabang. Skilled players should choose Yumiyacha if they wish to get a head-start on unlocking these classes.
- Meteo Arrow is able to pierce buildings, which makes it useful for attacking enemies hiding behind cover.
For more statistics, go to the Patapon 3 Uberhero Statistics page.
- Yumiyacha and other Yumiyacha-based classes don't inherit any other Class Skills from other classes.
- Yumiyacha's last Set Skill, Peerless Bow, is similar to Alosson's Set Skill, Desperado, except Yumiyacha's skill increases damage dealt, and taken, by an extra 50% comparing to Desperado.
- Unlike other classes (apart from Alosson with a piercing bow), he is the only one that can shoot arrows through a gate/entrance while his Uberhero Mode is active.
- Kan as Yumiyacha is seen with a Poison Longbow on the American cover but it's impossible in game for Yumiyacha to equip one, as Yumiyacha cant use longbows.
- Yumiyacha Uberhero doesnt have visible "Eagle Eye". However, Yumiyacha Uberhero holds weapon differently when enemies are in his sight.
- Occasionally when Yumiyacha shoots his arrows at the sky in Hero Mode, he would be able to damage those units from above, such as Deaths.
- Out of all the 3 main Uberheroes, Yumiyacha is the only one of the 3 that gets a welcome bonus when his Class Skills are fully upgraded. This is because his Class Skills are not passed on to other classes, like how Yarida passes on his Class Skills to spear-throwing classes.
- Yumiyacha's limited range from Uberhero Mode make him a shorter ranged archer that can take down targets easier at mid-range, compared to how Alosson compensates for better attack speed. Alosson's ranged attacks in Uberhero Mode require positioning in some cases, however.
- Alosson fires arrows based on attack speed, while Yumiyacha fires 1 - 6 arrows (from Class Skills) for every attack speed interval. (e.g Fire 3 arrows every two seconds)
