Yin Yang Orb as it pertains to the windows games[edit]

Although the times it is actually addressed are mainly just in the PC-98 series, doesn't Reimu use yin yang orbs in many Window games in her spell cards and attacks? TiamatRoar 22:17, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

She does, but it is not the Yin-Yang Orb. Those are generic yin-yang orbs.--Tosiaki 22:24, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Well, after looking at the text again, it seems like the phrase 陰陽玉 is used. But that the Yin-Yang Orbs that are used in the windows games possess the same powers as the one in PC-98 - that is something one cannot be sure of.--Tosiaki 17:59, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

So, uh[edit]

What is our logic for placing this in the character categories? It's an object. Even if it's orbs animated with ~magics~ to move around and be enemies, they still aren't characters in any sense of the word. KennyMan666 (talk) 16:46, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

In the Touhou world there are three types of Yin-yang orb: Item (+ character? PC-98), Item (Windows) and general enemy (Windows and PC-98). The problem is, they're all written down on the same page. Despite the looks, they are complete different things (well at least in my opinion).--Doncot (talk) 17:02, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I propose we split this article. At the very least, the Hakurei Yin-Yang should have its own page. The rest idk if they warrant articles on their own. Either way, I don't think any of them qualify as legitimate characters. Opinions? KennyMan666 (talk) 21:31, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Split, or rather moved and rewritten? I think this was put here because we don't have the Item category on this wiki, and if we made one it'd be more appropriate to move it to there.--Doncot (talk) 22:28, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
As for the Hakurei Yin-Yang, it could be either it's own separate page or as a section in Reimu's article. Creating a whole page for a single generic enemy seems useless. Though, the article "Generic enemy" could be created, with the yin-yang orbs having a section or something. ☢ Quwanti 23:32, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
I have a page on generic enemies if people wish to use that. :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 23:37, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Personally, seeing that thing in the characters page and category just blew my mind. I'd place the orb fairy on a separate page, as Tony64 suggested.--Higan (talk) 10:02, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
