Kokoro Hirasawa (as a child)
- For her V-Cinema alternate see Yoko Usami (V-Cinema)
She gained incredible kicking and jumping power from an accident, and as such this is her Buster Power. Her powers have a trade-off however. Her weakness is that if she runs out of calories for her "inner battery" to burn, she will be unable to move. Thus, she compensates by eating lots of candy.
The youngest of the group. The three Go-Busters make their first appearance in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Uchuu Keiji Gavan: The Movie where they take on their predecessors' nemesis, Basco ta Jolokia, to make sure he didn't get the Galleon.
13 years ago, when Messiah was newly created, it trapped the scientists and Buddy Roids into a small room. Yoko was among the trapped, as her mother was one of the scientists. After the head scientist teleported the facility to a dimension in hyper-space, Yoko, Ryuji, and Hiromu, as well as the Buddy Roids, were left behind. The little girl broke down, distraught that she had lost her mother. It was here that Hiromu promised that he would bring their parents back.
Super Hero Taisen Z
The three Go-Busters are set to appear in Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z. It has yet to be confirmed whether they will be joined by Beet and Stag Buster.
Video Game appearances
Go-Busters video game
Yoko as Yellow Buster appears with her team in the Nintendo DS Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters video game.
- Buster Vehicle RH-03: Yellow Buster's helicopter.
- RH-03's Animal/MegaZord Mode, RH-03 Rabbit
As Yellow Buster uses the GB Custom Visor, Usada Lettuce's data transfers and projects onto Yellow Buster's suit to form a powerful armor based on the "protector" prototypes. Usada and Yellow Buster, to a degree, are combined and can generate airborne forcefields on which Yellow Buster can jump onto and from. Yellow Buster/Usada gain the attack "Rappit Kick" which is a super-charged full body projectile and/or drill attack.
Yoko is somewhat boisterous and tends to say things without thinking. She is also not afraid to say things as she sees it. She also has a strong dislike for Hiromu, to the point of calling in a "siscon", and thinks that he'll be a hinderance. This is gradually going away.

Behind the scenes
Yoko Usami is portrayed by Arisa Komiya (小宮 有紗 Komiya Arisa?). As a child, she is portrayed by Kokoro Hirasawa (平澤 宏々路 Hirasawa Kokoro?). Yoko was briefly portrayed by Katsuhiro Suzuki (鈴木 勝大 Suzuki Katsuhiro?) in Mission 28: Beware of Chickens, when Sprayloid 2 caused her appearance to change into that of Hiromu, though Arisa Komiya still provided Yoko's voice.
As Yellow Buster, her suit actor is Yuichi Hachisuka (蜂須賀 祐一 Hachisuka Yūichi?) whose previous role was Gokai Yellow in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. Like many female rangers, her suit actor is actually male, Yuichi Hachisuka having had only a few male roles since starting as Change Phoenix in Dengeki Sentai Changeman. In Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z, her suit actor was Jiro Uchikawa (内川 仁朗 Uchikawa Jirō?).
- Yellow Buster is the first Sentai Hero to be based on a lagomorph, but not the first Tokusatsu character to be related to a lagomorph in any way. She is preceded by Usagi Tsukino from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, whose name means "Rabbit of the Moon". Yoko Usami means "Rabbit of the Ocean".
- She is also the first female Sentai Hero to have a helicopter-themed mecha since Pink Mask.
- She is the only Go-Buster with a Buddy Roid of the opposite gender.
- Yoko is the third Sentai hero to sing the song that Remi Hoshikawa (FiveYellow) taught her pupils in the first episode of Fiveman, having sang it in Mission 42. Umeko also sang it in the first episode of Dekaranger.
The Yellow Buster Ranger Key (イエローバスターレンジャーキー Ierō Basutā Renjā Kī?) is a Go-Buster Ranger Key which as part of the first three Go-Busters was released as part of the "Legends" series of toys. It only exists as a toy and it is unknown if it will appear in the series. Of course as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. Gokai Yellow, into Yellow Buster.
