The fourth sister is a muscle-brained idiot. She's dependable in the sense that she's motivated. But she worries me the most. And plus, she's... no, I'm just overthinking things. In any case, she's an idiot.

Fuutarou to Rena about Yotsuba, Chapter 42

Yotsuba Nakano (なか よつ, Nakano Yotsuba?) is the fourth sister of the Nakano Quintuplets, and one of the main characters of the 5-toubun no Hanayome series. Having an cheerful and energetic personality, she has a strong tendency of helping people out.

She is a transfer student of the Asahiyama High School, and currently the class representative of Class 3-1, along with her tutor, Fuutarou Uesugi.

In the past, Yotsuba and her sisters used to enroll at the Black Rose Girls School, thanks to the influence of the their stepfather, Maruo Nakano. However, an unfortunate incident prompted them to transfer to another school.

Personality

Yotsuba is an active, cheerful and easygoing girl. She talks in a loud, spontaneous and sometimes absent-minded manner. She is the type of person who can't say no to people who need help[8] and is mostly seen helping people; either directly and indirectly.

While cheerful on the outside and towards others, Yotsuba also harbours feelings of inferiority towards her sisters and her own abilities. Her inferiority complex started to grow when she met Fuutarou when they were children and caught him talking to her sister while noticing that he did not know it wasn't her. She made several attempts to fix her complex (such as wearing her iconic ribbon and trying to excel in extra-curricular activities), which in turn made her desire to be different from her sisters. While portrayed as a bad liar early on, she is later shown to have some skill in lying herself; being able to hide her true identity to Fuutarou all the while being able to maintain their relationship, at least when together.

Ability

Knowing the Yotsuba is physically fit; she is capable of tasks that aren't normally done by her sisters. She has excellent stamina and is a good runner; meaning she has a knack for sports. Her excellent skills were shown when she scored 7.9 seconds for a 50m sprint; even getting praised by a  fellow skilled club member. She is the only known sister with excellent eyesight, whilst Itsuki wears glasses, and Nino uses contacts. This definitely shows when she could see Nino's name tag from the second floor of her condominium. She even sports a good sense of smell and has a green thumb.

Like her sisters, her academic abilities are poor at best; even getting zero on a test.[12] She is well aware of her shortcomings and even stated that she would most likely be the one to repeat a year. Ranking to be the lowest one, with her strongest subject being Japanese.

She has been noted to be terrible at lying, though she says that she could if she really wanted to. Miku and Fuutarou have been able to see through her times of deceit.
