Characters/Titles

From Touhou Wiki
< Characters(Redirected from Character Titles)
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of titles given to each character from each of their official profiles. Each title says something about the character it's been given to, even if some are rather ambiguous. The works each title has appeared in are listed in brackets next to the title. The titles are ordered according to the works' internal chronological order; for example, Imperishable Night follows Immaterial and Missing Power.

Some characters have multiple titles which may change from one game appearance to the next, and also have several names in a certain game. The characters that appear in Match Mode but not Story Mode of Touhou Hisoutensoku are excluded from the below chart because they only appear if Scarlet Weather Rhapsody is installed and take their titles from that game.

There appears to be characters from certain games that have a similarity to the rest of the characters titles. Here are a few examples:

It should be noted that not all characters have an official profile to have received a title from.

  • The Great Wheel, Having Guarded and Been Guarded (UFO, SoPm)
  • The Flower that Blooms in the Sky and Old Man (DS)
  • The Overwhelming Youkai Ascetic (HM)

(* "Big Wheel" (大輪) is a literal translation of either "largely blooming" or "a large flower", relating to the fact that "ichirin" is normally means "single flower" in Japanese as the unit of counting flowers. That helps explain the connection to their DS title.)
(* Their DS has a possible double meaning, as it can also be read as "The Flower and Old Man that Bloom in the Sky", since the participle or modifier in Japanese can apply to multiple nouns. ZUN probably made this rather amusing implication deliberately.) (* Some people interpret her title of UFO showing Ichirin's origin — look at the word "大輪". When it loses " (human) from "", it becomes "一輪" (Ichirin): 大輪 = 一輪. When she abandoned being human, she was reborn from the moment as youkai, as what Ichirin is now.)

(* The FS title is a parody of the Japanese proverb "counting the profit from an uncaptured tanuki's fur" (toranu tanuki no kawa-zanyou, 捕らぬ狸の皮算用), which basically means the same as "counting your chickens before they've hatched".)
(* The HM title has the sound to be associated with a slogan of corporate advertisement, so this title makes Mamizou funny, or dubious, in contrast between the friendly attitude of her and the unnatural politeness of the title.)
