Characters

From Touhou Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame reminisce about characters they've encountered, from the Silent Sinner in Blue Prologue.

The Touhou Project features a great number and variety of characters. Over the course of 21 games, literature and even music CDs, the cast has grown to having 154 characters in total. Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame are considered the main characters of the Touhou series, due to the fact that they are almost always the playable characters in the games. Others usually reappear in later games, as support characters, bosses or with some other role in the story line. However due to a few differencing points in the series, some of the characters were never mentioned again (like almost all of the PC-98 ones).

PC-98 Games

The major difference in the canon for the series starts from the release of the first game for windows, Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. ZUN decided to develop for the Windows platform instead of for the PC-98, which is the point at which he stated. Besides the Returning characters from the PC-98, none of the other characters from the PC-98 canon have reappeared within the Windows canon. Their appearance, personality, and storylines are all significantly different, although some traces and connections seem to remain.

Windows Games

Another minor pivotal point exists with the release of Mountain of Faith, marking the "2nd Windows generation". While previous games had independent storylines, the plots of Mountain of Faith up to Ten Desires were connected (e.g. The events of Ten Desires were triggered by the construction of the Myouren Temple, which in turn was triggered by the Palanquin ship being released by the geyser by Utsuho's power.) However, Double Dealing Character contains no storyline related to the previous games, so it could mark another minor pivotal point for a possible "3rd Windows generation".

The character appearances trend also resets. For example, Sakuya Izayoi was a stage 5 boss in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil who later became playable in Perfect Cherry Blossom up to Phantasmagoria of Flower View, but has not made an appearance after that in any danmaku Touhou game up until Double Dealing Character.

  • Fighting Games

A consistent cast can be seen in the fighting games. Rather than inventing a new set of characters, only one or two new characters were added with the rest coming from previous games. So far, only four characters had first appeared in a fighting game.

  • Photography Games

In Shoot the Bullet and Double Spoiler, characters from previous games are used. Shoot the Bullet contains most characters from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil to Phantasmagoria of Flower View, while Double Spoiler adds the cast from Mountain of Faith up to Undefined Fantastic Object.

Literature

The cast of Touhou characters also grows with the addition of the novels and comics. Only Aya Shameimaru and the Three Fairies Of Light were later featured in a game. Touhou literature seems to be directly connected with the Windows games as events that happen within the literature are transferred over to the Windows games and in vice versa.
