{{nihongo|'''Mamizou Futatsuiwa'''|二ッ岩 マミゾウ|Futatsuiwa Mamizou}} is a [[Tanuki|Bake-danuki]], summoned by [[Nue Houjuu]] who originally lived in [[wikipedia:Sado,_Niigata|Sado]] in the [[Outside World]] in order to act as the [[Myouren Temple]]'s trump card against the newly-arrived residents of the [[Hall of Dreams' Great Mausoleum]], particularly [[Toyosatomimi no Miko]]. She is able to morph both herself and other creatures into different forms and can disguise herself as a [[human]].
==General Information==
Mamizou first appeared as the Extra stage [[boss]] of ''[[Ten Desires]]''. She then appeared as a playable character of ''[[Hopeless Masquerade]]'', she was a 6th and 8th Day Boss of ''[[Impossible Spell Card]]'' and a Playable Character in ''[[Urban Legend in Limbo]]'' and ''[[Antinomy of Common Flowers]]''. She is a recurring character in ''[[Forbidden Scrollery]]''.
She is a [[Tanuki|bake-danuki]] of proper lineage, and a [[youkai]] of the [[Outside World]] who has been called over by [[Nue Houjuu]] (by her own judgement) as a means of resistance since the [[Saint]] who sings of youkai extermination, [[Toyosatomimi no Miko]], revived. After the quarrel, she started living in the [[Myouren Temple]]. She was originally from [[wikipedia:Sado, Niigata|Sado]] along with the [[human]]s there, presumably Mamizou used and before the events of ''[[GensokyoTen Desires]]'s [[Occult Ball|Power Stone]] to pass '' Extra stage, passed through the [[Great Hakurei Barrier]] and to enter Gensokyo.
Mamizou, proud of her race's esteem, is good natured, albeit with a mischievous streak. She speaks the way an old lady might, and occasionally squints as if she was nearsighted. She isn't one to take a grudge, but as [[Marisa Kirisame]] in her extra stage shows she has her limits of niceness. She does enjoy pulling pranks on [[human]]s and watching them be confused and flustered. Perhaps because in the latter half of ''[[Ten Desires]]'', there were many characters who engage in things while they actually had ulterior motives, in one part, it can be said "Mamizou is the conscience of this game." In the game, she talked in a light friendly way, and from such sayings that indicate because the way she spoke indicated "training"," in itself the current situation it seems that she has self-confidence currently is very confident in her power as a strong [[youkai]].
Her first person pronoun is {{nihongo|"washi"|儂}}, which is entirely an old person's way of speaking. Nevertheless, this seems to be her way of saying things, and not so much because a belief of having aged. Since the bake-danuki who showed up in ''[[Oriental Sacred Place]]'' also used "washi", it might just be that all tanuki use old people's way of speaking.
Despite being brought in as a 'trump card', she is noted to as being friendly with humans, and has been seen taking on the form of a human while in the [[Human Village]]. According to the omake text, it statedof ''[[Ten Desires]]'', "sometimes she'd trick them, but she'd also lend money to the poor and worked diligently on any task she was given, so she integrated well into human society"," so showing that she is also a good person in the part that she can be called on for help reliable and expressly crossed the sea from Sadokind at heart. Though she is seen in the Human Village often in human form, ''[[Symposium of Post-mysticism]]'' has stated that she does not make an effort to hide her tail, considering it a mark of her high status.
However, she doesn't get along with [[kitsune]], which would stated and in ''[[Symposium of Post-mysticism]]'', Mamizou says that [[wikipedia:Sado, Niigata|Sado]] is a country entirely of bake-danuki, and not a single fox can be found there are no kitsune in Sado. It's said that if she encounters one, there would will be trouble.
Mamizou is able to completely disguise herself save for her large tail and her ears, which appears to be a commonality among all bake-danuki. In order to get around this, she can shrink them or camouflage them, but if she is surprised or excited her ears and tail will twitch, making it a dead giveaway. Another give away would be her smell.<ref>Nitori and Marisa's story modes in [[Hopeless Masquerade]]</ref>
Her disguising abilities gain power on nights of the full moon.Since [[tanuki]] like to do things like disguising people to take on a bewildering look, they rarely do inflict direct damage. The meaning of 'disguising things' is something that resembles the fellow [[Nue (Species)|nue]], and thus mutually, they do not appear to play the role of close-range combat [[youkai]]. Thus it is a possibility that Nue has called Mamizou over with the consideration that "since the opponent can hear ten people's conversations at the same time, one has no choice but to call over a suitable youkai for splitting into 10 + 1 = 11."
She is also able to disguise other objects. However, if there is no resemblance between the base object and the disguised one, it will probably be seen through immediately, especially in regard to creatures.
While the ability is described as a simple disguise, it isn't a mere illusion and actually influences and changes the physical properties of the target. For instance, in ''[[Hopeless Masquerade]]'', she can turn the opponent into something [[Hopeless_Masquerade/Spell_Cards/Mamizou_Futatsuiwa#Spell_Card_3|completely harmless]], and her underlings seem to obtain the properties of whatever they transform into, becoming able to attack by blowing steam after they [[Hopeless_Masquerade/Spell_Cards/Mamizou_Futatsuiwa#Spell_Card_2|tranform into a giant teapot]].
;Other Abilities
Mamizou possesses the ability to travel in and out of Gensokyo, but the mechanism she uses to do this has not been explained.
[[File:ThGKMamizou.png|thumb|right|200px|Mamizou, as illustrated in ''[[Symposium of Post-mysticism]]'']]
Due to sayings from her specifications and sayings that indicate that she has bad relations with [[kitsune]], Mamizou is probably based on Japan's three famous tanuki, [[httpsWikipedia://|Danzaburou-danuki]] of [[Wikipedia:Sado, Niigata|Sado Island]], one of the most famous tanuki in Japanese folklore, along with [[httpsWikipedia://|Hage Danuki]] of [[Wikipedia:Yashima, Kagawa|Yashima]] and [[httpsWikipedia://|Shibaemon Tanuki]] of [[Wikipedia:Awaji Island|Awaji Island]]. He was the boss of tanuki on [[Sado]], who drove off the foxes from the island.<ref>{{cite web|url=|title=Secret Sado #2 - Aikawa Yamaki Hotel Blog|author=eyamaki|date=5 April 2010|accessdate=15 August 2011}}</ref> In another, Danzaburo was a money lender, who freely loaned money to the people. He was also said to be responsible for mirages at Futatsu-iwa, a rock formation in Aikawa, Sado.<ref>{{cite web|url=|title=Transactions of the Asiatic Society of Japan, Volume 36|author=Asiatic Society of Japan|date=1908|publisher=The Society|accessdate=15 August 2011}}</ref> Those tanuki however were great [[youkai]] who possessed divinity and were recorded as {{nihongo|"Futatsuiwa Daimyoujin"|二ッ岩大明神}}.
Mamizou has brown eyes and light-brown, shoulder length hair. She is featured with tanuki ears and a giant striped tail. On her head there lays a green leaf like that of a tanuki and she has glasses. She has a ecru shirt and her skirt is red-grey with some patterns on it. As with most bake-danuki from Japanese myths, Mamizou carries things on her back that look like a bottle of sake and a booklet of promissory notes. In ''[[Hopeless Masquerade]]'', when she gets hit or performs certain attacks, she can be seen wearing grey bloomers.
When visiting the [[Human Village]] she uses a human disguise, without her raccoon ears or tail. In this form, she has long hair , a checkered scarf and large robe, and wears a leaf-shaped hair clip.
:{{Main|Impossible Spell Card#Story|l1=Impossible Spell Card: Story}}
Later on in the game, Mamizou appears to have taken note of the wanted [[amanojaku]] [[Seija Kijin]]. She confronts her and says that the [[tengu]] (presumably [[Aya Shameimaru]] and [[Hatate Himekaidou]]) have taken notice of her and have written up a newspaper about her mischief. This causes stronger [[youkai]] and [[human]]s such as [[Marisa Kirisame]], [[Sakuya Izayoi]], [[Sanae Kochiya]] and [[Youmu Kompaku]] – including Mamizou – to try and capture Seija. Also, she notes that Seija can use two items simultaneously rather than one, which made her curious why Seija weren't using this technique in the first place. She uses [[spell card]]s that are considered impossible to dodge.
;''Urban Legend in Limbo''
Mamizou assists Kasen and the rest of the characters in setting up a trap that will draw the Outside World human [[Sumireko Usami]] into Gensokyo, with the intention of teaching her a lesson about the danger caused by her actions. In her own route, she goes to the Outside World and fights Sumireko herself.
;''Wild and Horned Hermit'', chapter 9
After a strange 'black mist' assails the residents of the Myouren Temple and others, Mamizou pays a visit to the [[Hakurei Shrine]] accompanied by [[Kogasa Tatara]] and [[Kyouko Kasodani]], suspecting [[Reimu Hakurei]] as the culprit. HoweverDays later, [[Suika Ibuki]] soon reveals herself as the true attacker, and the three youkai appear to leave during the chaos.

===Minor Relationships===
;[[Hata no Kokoro]]
At the end of Mamizou's storyline in ''[[Hopeless Masquerade]]'', she urged [[Hata no Kokoro]] to, through battle with other characters in the game, learn how to control her emotions and to "discover herself" instead of becoming a mere tsukumogami for Sarugaku masks.
;[[Kosuzu Motoori]]
In ''[[Forbidden Scrollery]]'', Mamizou – disguised – has become a regular customer of [[Kosuzu Motoori]] with an interest in the [[Demon book]]s and talks with Kosuzu warmly. While friendly, her true reasons are currently unknown.
;[[Kasen Ibaraki]]
Kasen and Mamizou first meet at winter after the events of [[Ten Desires]] during an incident where a mysterious black mist was attacking the residents of [[Myouren Temple]], which resulted to be [[Suika Ibuki]]. Later, during the beginning of the Urban Legends incident they found a man-faced dog and tried to find a reason for these ocurrences appearing in Gensokyo. During the [[Urban Legend in Limbo|peak of the incident]] they confronted twice, when Mamizou found Kasen opening a hole in the barrier to the Outside World and made a deal with her to keep her mouth shut and look after potential intruders while Kasen was gone. Later Mamizou decided to play as the villain and decided to interfere with Kasen's plan to fight the responsible of the incident, [[Sumireko Usami]], with the benefit to move easily around the Outside World. She tricked Sumireko to explore Gensokyo and, in the meantime, put in motion Kasen's plan to scare her while she wandered freely. Then, with Reimu aprehending Sumireko, Kasen and Mamizou confronted her and Mamizou promised to look after her. As seen in [[Wild and Horned Hermit]], Mamizou became worried of Kasen's influence over the Hakurei Shrine and how obviously she was an [[oni]] so she set some oni repelling traps to provoke Kasen. After seeing this, Kasen organized a flower viewing event at the shrine to confront Mamizou in a drinking contest. Kasen won the contest and earned Mamizou's respect. They attend another event where they drink together in [[Visionary Fairies in Shrine]].
