The point of collection, or POC for short, is an invisible line about 1/4-1/5 of the way down the screen; the exact location depends on the character selected. When the player character moves above this line at full power, (in Imperishable Night in Youkai mode or with Marisa as well; in Mountain of Faith, Subterranean Animism and Undefined Fantastic Object at any power level) all items on the screen will automatically be drawn to the character at a moderate speed. They do not stop if the character moves below the line before they have been collected. This feature first appeared in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, and in games following Mountain of Faith, the actual position of the line was shown on screen at the start of a stage.
