Ayana (妖奈) is a presumed-demon created by Shinki found in Makai's Pandæmonium who is the stage 5 midboss of Mystic Square. As she attacks the heroine, she shoots a barrage of danmaku as she raises both her arms and has three attack pattens. If defeated, she drops a 1-up, but the player is then left with stronger demons that are stage enemies that'll shoot random bullets; not defeating the midboss will minimize the amount of dodging from these enemies. She eventually self-destructs near to the boss fight. Since she has no dialogue with the player, nothing is known about her.

Background Information[edit]

Like any other PC-98 midboss, this character is nameless. However, some Japanese fans have given her the name Ayana (妖奈), where aya () means "bewitching", while na () refers to the Nara prefecture in Japan (but in names is used phonetically, that is, it conveys the sound "na" but doesn't really mean anything). However, she's more notably referred to as "MS 5th Stage Midboss" (怪綺談五面中ボス). In the Western communities, some fans call her the "Nameless Midboss Demon" or "Izumi".

Her sprite shows that she has blonde hair with a red bow on the top of her head. She wears a red dress that's got long red sleeves with pink polka-dots and a pink bow in the centre with pink frills. She somewhat bears a resemblance to Rengeteki, where the details are different and has no wings. Medicine Melancholy from the Windows era also has a striking resemblance to Ayana.
