Mishaguji's sprite in Touhou Hisoutensoku
The ability to cast curses
Unknown, but one of the oldest gods; may date back to as far back as the Jomon period.
Suwako Moriya (Boss)
The Mishaguji have abilities as curse gods and as harvest gods. Grain sprouts in their wake, but their breath can render land barren. Suwako also uses them to flatten land and dig tunnels to the Underworld.
The Mishaguji were powerful curse gods who amassed large amounts of faith by cursing harvests, births, and the militaries, amongst other things. Although they were fearsome, Suwako Moriya was able to tame them and bring them under her command, gaining a large amount of faith and establishing a small kingdom for herself in the process. When Kanako Yasaka invaded the kingdom and took control of the Moriya Shrine, the shrine's followers feared that their new goddess would be unable to control the Mishaguji and did not give Kanako their faith, forcing her to seek Suwako's help.
The Mishaguji have the appearance of large, spectral, white snakes, with glowing red eyes and mouths. Hieda no Akyuu describes them as being made of stone.
Suwako is the only one who is able to tame the Mishaguji, as well as the only one to be able to use them as spell cards.
