The Sunflower Fairy (ひまわり妖精 Himawari yōsei) is a modern stage enemy who appears in Phantasmagoria of Flower View to Ten Desires. They're one of the most notable generic enemies in the Touhou Project.



Its original name is unknown, but fans named this fairy the Sunflower Fairy (ひまわり妖精) as it holds a sunflower in its hands.


The main appearance of the fairy is where it has short red hair, (possibly) orange cherry hair pins and a long pony tail. Large slightly pinkish wings and a dress. And she holds two large sunflowers.

Past Appearance[edit]

But a lot of different versions exist. In Phantasmagoria of Flower View she had instead of red hair, light blue hair and white wings. In the same game when the heroine is in Muenzuka the fairy wears a dark blue dress and a blue hat with a gold emblem in front. ZUN said that the fairies where cosplaying as the yama in the stage. [Ref. Needed]

In Undefined Fantastic Object a version of this fairy was mainly purple, with purple hair and purple hair pins. The sunflowers are also purple and the wings and dress are also slightly purple. The Makai version has short black hair with (possibly) red cherry hair pins and a long pony tail. And wears a pure white dress and holds 2 large sunflowers which has a black stem with black petals and red seeds. Also the fairy has large black wings with red markings.


They are generic enemies in Windows.
