Trivia[edit]

  • According to the developers, the boss fight against Marisa and Yuyuko in stage 3 is an allegory for Shizuka's plotline:
    • The midboss spell Sorrowful Butterfly "Rise of Secularity, Decline of Faith" hints at Shizuka's declining faith before her move to Gensokyo.
    • The Zhuangzi butterfly references in the first boss spell represents the blurring of boundaries between dreams and reality, alluding to her crossing the Great Hakurei Barrier.
    • The second and third boss spells reference Shizuka's power of impermanence and Ei's power of permanence, respectively.
    • Finally, Marisa's Last Spell visually references the Sakura Jade splitting in two at the start of the incident, and the halves eventually getting reunited at the end of the Extra stage.
