Shoot the Bullet/Characters

This article list all the characters appearing in Shoot the Bullet.

There is only one playable character, which does not shoot any danmaku. Instead, she makes pictures to clear the danmaku. The idea of a photography game with danmaku was already in ZUN's mind since Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Though, at the time the idea did not work out very well and there wasn't a suitable character. In Phantasmagoria of Flower View, the character Aya Shameimaru was created, who is a tengu reporter. She was perfect for such game, and ZUN started working on it.

The bosses are all bosses appearing in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil to Phantasmagoria of Flower View. Some bosses were left out, like the Prismriver Sisters and Yuuka Kazami. The moment to meet the characters in their level is somewhat equal to their appearance in their game. So the lower bosses like Rumia or Cirno appear in the levels 1 and 2 respectively, while the higher placed characters like Eiki Shiki and Eirin Yagokoro are placed at the levels 9 and 10. In the extra level the characters for the extra stage from the first four games appear here.

There is one character that did not appear in one of the main games, but rather in the fighting spin of Immaterial and Missing Power, which is Suika Ibuki. This is also the first game where none of the main characters appears at all. They only appear in the Special Story of the afterword and Marisa's face appear as the game icon.

  1. Kirisute gomen is the right of a samurai to cut down an impolite person. This privilege was rarely invoked, as its use was heavily scrutinized, and the samurai would lose his title and home if he was found to have misused it.
  2. Edokko is someone who was born and raised in Tokyo. Edo is an older name for Tokyo. Edokkos use vulgar language, but they are loyal and compassionate.
