|Debut||Chapter 1; Episode 1|
Yuhei Arita (有田 雄平 Arita Yuhei) is Utsutsu's friend at school.
Yuhei is short in height and wears the standard uniform, which consists on a white shirt and a sweater vest.
In the manga, Yuhei is portrayed as Utsutsu's straighforward friend. He is aware that he is being abused and home, but knows he cannot do anything about it, so he remains supportive towards Utsutsu. After Yume becomes "infected" with the red butterflies and she and Utsutsu are on the run, they don't return to school.
He reappears together with Shigaraki in Chapter 25, visiting the Hasegawa household, only to realize that Utsutsu and Yume are not back yet. Upon seeing a clover field, he remembers Utsutsu's hairpin and wonders if his friend is alright wherever he is.
After Utsutsu and Yume dissintegrate into red butterflies and die, the bugs reach the school where they attended. Yuhei and his friends see them and hear Utsutsu and Yume's voices. This makes Yuhei realize that Utsutsu is not coming back.
Since the anime was very short, there's not much characterization of Yuhei, only that he is Utsutsu's good friend. In the final episode, it's shown that he gave Utsutsu a ticket on the condition of getting the teddy bear for Yume, because he did not want the teddy bear
