M.U.G.E.N (also written as M.U.G.E.N., MUGEN, or Mugen) is a free (but closed source) user-customizable 2D fighting game engine for PCs, created by Elecbyte. For more information about Mugen in general, including where to download each of the different versions and where to get help setting up your own game, please see Wikipedia's article on M.U.G.E.N. Its stable version is 1.0 and latest public beta is 1.1.

Touhou in M.U.G.E.N

Among the thousands of characters, stages, screenpacks, and storyboards released for use with Mugen, various Touhou Project-related creations have been done, most of which use sprites and sounds taken from the Twilight Frontier Touhou games. With these, there exist many international online video fights between the Touhou characters, along with the fighting a ridiculous amount of non-Touhou characters, where some videos have become noticeable memes and target jokes. A popular example is this video on YouTube, which is a Flandre Scarlet vs Ronald McDonald fight.

Fan-fiction of the world of Touhou have also been created with the use of Mugen, similar to how Touhou Danmakufu is used to create Touhou fangames.

General Designs

The sprites for the Touhou characters are typically ripped from the official fighting spin-off Immaterial and Missing Power, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Touhou Hisoutensoku. A common and rather easy way to create Touhou characters is by basing their design on an already-created character: a very simple example is using Hong Meiling's sprite and changing her colours from red and green to black and purple to represent Lie Meiling.

This also includes creating an alternative to the original character such as "Sakuya Brando", a combination of Sakuya Izayoi and Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. There's also non-Touhou-based Mugen characters that take elements from Touhou, such as the Mugen joke character named Primeus; it's a giant floating salmon who shot laser beams, but it's sprite has been modified so it sometimes uses the Giant Catfish's sprites during its introduction to battle.
