Reimu Hakurei
Playable Character

種族:人間

能力:主に空を飛ぶ程度の能力

ご存知紅白の巫女さん。
幻想郷には外の世界からいろいろなものが流れ着く。
それがここ最近活発になり、なんだか様子がおかしいな?
と怪しみつつ、まったりタピオカミルクティーを飲む毎日を送っていたが、
ある日突然幻想郷が大都市になってしまった。
ちょっと流石にのっぴきならないので異変解決へと向かうことに。

Species: Human
Ability: Mainly flying in the sky

The all too familiar red and white shrine maiden.
Many things from the Outside World drift ashore into Gensokyo.
Lately, that's been happening more often; despite suspecting that "y'know, something
seems weird about this?", she spent every day relaxedly drinking tapioca milk tea.
Then one day, Gensokyo suddenly became a great metropolis.
She certainly couldn't get out of dealing with that, so she went to solve the incident.


Marisa Kirisame
普通の魔法使い
Ordinary Magician

Marisa Kirisame
Playable Character

種族:人間

能力:魔法を使う程度の能力

幻想郷に暮らす一般的な魔法使い。
蒐集癖がすごいので、最近は外来のモノが溢れてウハウハしていた。
ある朝起きたら幻想郷が畜生界とか外の世界とか、なんかそういう風景になっていたので、
これはチャンスとばかりにさらなるレア物を探して家を飛び出した。
その時は、あんなことになるとは思いもせずに…

Species: Human
Ability: Using magic

An ordinary magician living in Gensokyo.
She has a mania for collecting objects, so she's become exhilarated by the amount of foreign objects arriving recently.
When she woke up one day, she found that Gensokyo's landscape had become similar to that of the Outside World and the Animal Realm,
so she rushed out of her house to seize this chance to search for more rare objects.
At that time, she hardly expected how things would turn out...


Sumireko Usami
秘封倶楽部初代会長
First President of the Hifuu Club

Sumireko Usami
Playable Character

種族:人間

能力:超能力を操る程度の能力

外の世界から時折やってくる、超能力者の女子高生。
幻想郷に外来のモノが著しく増えたことをよく思っていなかった。
外の世界でも未だに見るものが幻想郷にやってくるというのは、
自分の夢が現実に侵食されているみたいだったのだ。

そこに都市化異変である。
こういうときどうしたらいいのか分からない彼女は、なんとなく神社へ向かうことにした。

Species: Human
Ability: Manipulation of psychic powers

A high school girl with psychic powers that occasionally arrives from the Outside World.
She didn't have a good opinion of the significant increase in the number of Outside World relics.
If things she could still see in the Outside World were coming to Gensokyo,
it'd be as if her dreams were being eroded by reality.

And then, the urbanization incident happened.
Having no idea what to do at times like this, she figured she'd just head towards the shrine.


Shinmyoumaru Sukuna
小人の末裔
Descendant of the Inchlings

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna
Playable Character

種族:小人

能力:打ち出の小槌を扱う程度の能力

伝説の一寸法師の遠い子孫で、打ち出の小槌を使うことが出来る小人族。
その小槌のせいで大変な目にあったのも今は昔。
だったが、最近幻想郷を小槌ライクな魔力が覆いはじめた。
多分自分のせいではないが、疑われるのも癪だし、誰かがひどい目にあうのもなんかアレ。
ということで、自分なりに原因を調査することに。

Species: Inchling
Ability: Using the Miracle Mallet

A distant descendant of the legendary Issun-Boshi, and an inchling capable of wielding the Miracle Mallet.
She got in a lot of trouble thanks to said mallet, but that's all in the past now.
...Or so she thought, but recently a magical power similar to that of the mallet began to envelop Gensokyo.
She was sure that it wasn't her fault-- probably-- but it'd be bad if anyone suspected her, and she wasn't super thrilled about anyone else getting in hot water because of it.
So she set out to investigate the cause of the incident in her own way.

Shinobu Izumino (泉野 偲 Izumino Shinobu) is the Stage 3 midboss and boss.

Concept[edit]

Shinobu is based on the urban legend of the Akusara (悪皿 / あくさら), which is short for Acrobatic Sarasara (アクロバティックサラサラ). The Akusara bears a resemblance to Hasshaku-sama. She is described as a tall woman with red clothes, silky black hair (sarasara means "smooth, silky") and dark, hollow eyes. The Akusara is also said to only appear in front of men she likes, perform acrobatic manoveurs, appear on top of rooftops / buildings and follow people persistently. Additionally, Yamahime (lit. mountain princess) are described as being beautiful women with long hair, who live in the mountains. Some stories describe them as being exceptionally tall, which mirrors the stories of Akusara / Hasshaku-sama.

Name

Her first name "Shinobu" is derived from Mt. Shinobu (信夫山 Shinobu-yama) located in Fukushima Prefecture.

Abilities

Startling people to death

Shuki Juujigahara (十字ヶ原 朱器 Juujigahara Shuki) is the Stage 4 midboss.

Concept[edit]

Shuki, like her master, is based on folklore of the kamehime that lived in Inawashiro Castle of Fukushima Prefecture. After several suspicious events that ultimately led to the castle chamberlain's death, a large nyuudou is said to have been seen fetching water outside, and it transformed into a large mujina upon being slain.

Additionally Shuki incorporates several elements of a youkai called Shunobon (lit. "scarlet tray"). Shunobon is said to be a terrifying demon with red skin, a single horn, a terrifying smile (Shuki uses a tray in her spellcard that is modeled after Shunobon's face) and spiky hair. They also love scaring people to death and the gnashing of their teeth sounds like thunder. Shunobon are considered to be servants of the kamehime.

Abilities

Inconveniencing people

Maki Minawashiro (水縄城 万亀 Minawashiro Maki), introduced in-game as Princess Yamou (病悩御前 (やもうごぜん) Yamou-gozen), is the Stage 4 boss.

Concept[edit]

Maki is largely based on the kamehime (亀姫, lit. "turtle princess") said to have lurked in Inawashiro Castle of Fukushima Prefecture (also known as Kamegashiro, lit. "turtle castle"). She also incorporates elements of Kamehime, the real-world daughter of Tokugawa Ieyasu.
She and the Stage 5 boss, Nueko, represent the crane and turtle mentioned in the lyrics of the Japanese children's song "Kagome, Kagome"; in particular, they parallel an urban legend about how the song's lyrics are coded directions to the location of the Tokugawa clan's legendary buried treasure, with the directions involving a turtle and crane statue located at Nikkō Tōshōgū.

Name

Her surname Minawashiro is comprised of kanji meaning "water rope castle", and is a pun on the real-world location of Inawashiro. Her first name, Maki, is comprised of kanji meaning "ten thousand" and "turtle".

Her title, "Yamou-Gozen", literally means "young lady of sickness". It is a play on Kamehime's historical title, Kanou-Gozen (加納御前, "young lady of Kanou domain"), and "Mount Yamou" (lit. "sickness mountain"), a historical name for the volcanic Mt. Bandai.

遥かに照らせ、荒城の月

Nueko Mitsurugi (御剣 縫重子 Mitsurugi Nueko) is the Stage 5 midboss and boss.

Concept[edit]

Nueko is based on the golem, an animate being made of clay originating in Jewish folklore. She is specifically created from the rubble of Aizuwakamatsu Castle (also known as Tsurugashiro, lit. "crane castle"), which served as a major Edo-period stronghold for the Tokugawa shogunate and was eventually destroyed in the Battle of Aizu.
She and the Stage 4 boss, Maki, represent the crane and turtle mentioned in the lyrics of the Japanese children's song "Kagome, Kagome"; in particular, they parallel an urban legend about how the song's lyrics are coded directions to the location of the Tokugawa clan's legendary buried treasure, with the directions involving a turtle and crane statue located at Nikkō Tōshōgū.

Name

Her surname Mitsurugi is comprised of kanji meaning "honorable sword", and was chosen for its similarity to the phrase tsuruki (鶴亀, lit. "crane and turtle"). Her first name, Nueko, is comprised of kanji meaning "stitch," "layer" and "child".

Himawari Mitsudaira (光平 向日葵 Mitsudaira Himawari) is the Stage 6 midboss, Stage 6 boss and Extra Stage midboss.

Concept[edit]

Himawari is a young modern-day itako, a type of female spirit medium in Japan. As the game's final boss, she represents the leaders of the Tokugawa shogunate.

During Stage 6, she wields a replica of the Ark of the Covenant in the form of a bow. This is inspired by urban legends and conspiracy theories about the Tokugawa clan's legendary buried treasure. According to such theories, the lyrics of the song "Kagome, Kagome" indicate Nikkō Tōshōgū's location at the center of a hexagram (a kagome pattern) drawn between major temples built by the Tokugawa, followed by a statue on the shrine grounds that includes a crane and turtle. Certain niche speculation draws further links between the hexagram and the Star of David, as well as the statue's superficial resemblance to the Ark of the Covenant, and posits that the Tokugawas were linked to one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.

Name

Her surname Mitsudaira is comprised of kanji that mean "light" and "flat", and is likely in reference to the Matsudaira clan, of which Tokugawa Ieyasu was the chieftain. Her first name, Himawari, means "sunflower".

ディープヒストリア[1]

Kagami Ashina (葦名 鏡海 Ashina Kagami), introduced in-game by the honorific title Seijoubou-Kyoukai (正条坊鏡海 (せいじょうぼうきょうかい) Seijoubou-Kyoukai), is the Extra Stage boss.

Concept[edit]

Kagami is based on Tenkai, a Tendai monk who served as advisor to several Tokugawa shoguns, including Tokugawa Ieyasu, and is said to have made numerous decisions regarding politics and architecture during their reign. Like other such priests who had a large impact on politics, he is at times referred to as a "Chancellor in Black Robes" (黒衣の宰相). Certain theories linking the Tokugawa clan's buried treasure to the song "Kagome, Kagome" interpret parts of the song's lyrics as veiled references to Tenkai's name (eg. linking the "crane and turtle" to the kanji 天 (ten, "sky") and 海 (kai, "sea").
In addition, Kagami incorporates real-world speculation about one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel having migrated to Japan, which is sometimes linked to the above theories via details such as the kagome hexagram's resemblance to the Star of David.

Name

Her surname Ashina is taken from the real-world Ashina clan from which Tenkai was born, and is spelt with kanji meaning "reed" and "name". Her first name Kagami is comprised of kanji meaning "mirror" and "sea".

Her honorific title, Seijoubou-Kyoukai, is a reference to Tenkai's title Nankoubou-Tenkai (南光坊天海, lit. "Tenkai, the priest of southern light"), and can be translated as "Kyoukai, the priest of clear, straight lines". "Kyoukai" is spelt with the same kanji as her given name, "Kagami".
