Yuka Tsujiyoko (辻横 由佳 Tsujiyoko Yuka) is a Japanese video game music composer for Nintendo. She is the music composer for the Fire Emblem video game franchise, which was not released outside Japan until 2003, and several other Intelligent Systems developed games. She also scored the Super Scope games Metal Combat: Falcon's Revenge and Battle Clash, Paper Mario and its sequel The Thousand-Year Door, and part of Tetris Attack.

She was born Yuka Baba in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. Tsujiyoko studied piano when she was in a preschool. She composed her first original composition when she was in high school, and that was her assignment for her music class. Tsujiyoko attended Osaka Electric Communications Junior College, and she majored in electronic engineering. Before she entered Intelligent Systems (a second-party video game developer for Nintendo), Tsujiyoko worked as a computer programmer for a productivity (or non-entertainment) software company. The largest game soundtrack she composed was for the emulation-popular Super Famicom game Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu, composed of 114 tracks. She works at Intelligent Systems part time, and formerly worked there full time. She was first known in the United States for scoring Paper Mario, with Taishi Senda. She left Intelligent Systems as full time employee after scoring Paper Mario. Tsujiyoko was inspired by her favorite artist Pat Metheny. Her mentor is Hirokazu 'Hip' Tanaka.

Tsujiyoko did not score Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, but she only supervised the score. Under Tsujiyoko's supervision, the game was scored by Saki Haruyama, Yoshihiko Kitamura, and Yoshito Hirano. However, Tsujiyoko was actively involved in scoring Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance.
