Top Ten Touhou Characters

The top ten most liked characters from every Touhou Game.

The Top TenXW

1Flandre Scarlet

Most abilities in touhou are very complex but flandre's ability is simply put. She has the ability to destroy absolutely anything just by squeezing her hand how awesome is that! To top it off she's a vampire which means her physical abilities are super advanced as well. When U.N. was her starts to play run.

I don't think some people really like Flandre, just her song and fandom interpretation. She is NOT crazy and does NOT want anybody's blood or insides! She's weird but CANONICALLY rarely angry! Powerful people are not necessarily a murderer. Yuyuko is an example of this. Fandom is going too far with her, she is 'kinda nuts' but not bipolar or insane. And her song is SO overrated, I bet half the people who voted for her like her song more than her.

Flandre is so cute! Though she is crazy, she makes you think of a crazy, adorable, little sister. She is really cool too! Her wings are colorful and beautiful, her hat is cute, and her dress is so adorable! Please more votes for Flan-Chan!

She has the power to destroy anything... Need I say more?

2Yukari Yakumo

Yukari may as well be called God. I mean honestly. Nice figure, classy attitude, and the super absolutely mind blowing ability to distort the boundaries of anything. And I mean ANYTHING peps. She could literally look at the horizon and grab it, even that counts as a border. Yukari could make monsters from your dreams become real by separating the boundaries of dreams and reality. She could mess up the boundaries of good and evil, of pink and green, of the border of the universe, of existing and not existing. So yeah... She is PRE-TTY strong :-p. And, well, she is just so laid back and lazy! She is awesome. I would propose to her if I was a guy. (And get rejected)...

She can control the boundaries of anything that exists and that doesn't exist. In other words, she can easily nullify any other character's ability.

Yukari is the Boom! She is just so strong. Her power of controlling boundaries is awesome, and I love how she acts like she knows EVERYTHING. This girl is unstoppable!

If Yukari was real, she could manipulate the border of holidays and weekdays so we don't have to work/ go to school Ever.

3Reimu Hakurei

Reimu's the main protagonist! She's considered as one of the most badass and powerful characters in Touhou! I love her design also, red/white for the win!

Raymoo is Touhou herself. Honestly, she should be number one instead of overrated Flandre.

Reimu is honestly the best. Honestly, Flandre is overrated... Everyone likes Flandre, which eventually gets a bit annoying...

4Marisa Kirisame

Marisa is THE proof that hard work (and some pragmatism) could get you a standing in a world that's dominated by overpowered beings. Despite countless beings underestimating the "ordinary magician", she proves to them in each and every game that perseverance could get you anywhere.

Marisa can throw you the entire universe, all the galaxies and stars and she has infinite number of hyper beams.

Bad-ass and best to play with- MARISA

Marisa is my fave

5Alice Margatroid

Her canon personality is awesome, unlike the tsundere one in fanon. Alice is one of the most badass character, she didn't even use her full skill yet. Beside, shanghei and hourai really add some bonus.

I like her personality and her dress she is very beautiful and I like her dolls they are very cute! : 3

"Danmaku is all about brains, its common sense."

Alice Margatroid is special, in that she never uses her full power. She is a living example that strategy can overcome pure destructive ability if used right. She is cute too, of course

6Sakuya Izayoi

Maids who are fighting with many knives and stops the time to make her work? Approved!

Stopping time while throwing knives seems like it has some relation to real life and her stylistic approach to it makes it all the better.

Time manipulation, serious attitude, and being a maid make for one hell of a great character. Why is she #10? Because Yukari is a sore loser, that's why!

'Cause who wouldn't want a maid that can stop time, throw knives and serve you tea all at once?

7Remilia Scarlet

Incredibly powerful vampire who's relatively harmless. Light-hearted girl who can be very serious when necessary. Septette for the Dead Princess. All you arguments were just made invalid.

She's the charismatic vampire mistress of the scarlet devil mansion. That's pretty cool in my opinion. Also she is very cute.

She can manipulate fate itself how awesome is that

8Reisen Udongein Inaba

Yep, she's red eyed. And she can make everyone mad. She is LUNATIC!

Does she even have a personality? She seems quite lackluster compared to other stage 5 characters (Sakuya, Youmu, Sanae, Seija) in abilities too...

9Utsuho Reiuji

She has the power of NUCLEAR FUSION. And she has an awesome design, and is probably the hardest non-extra boss.

She is one of the hardest to beat touhou bosses and has the power the use a atomic nuclear arm cannon... So pretty badass

Best theme, best design, best boss fight, plus she's crazy, evil, and uses NUCLEAR FUSION.

10Patchouli Knowledge

Not trying to sound rude but why is she so popular? I mean I don't dislike her but compared to characters she's put together with in fandom like Marisa or Alice, she's pretty shallow in character.

Patchy is just plain awesome. She's almost like me:
Doesn't have a life, likes science (magic counts as science right? ), and is absolutely hopeless at all physical activities!

Any person who sleeps and reads all the time but can single handedly wreck someone gets a good place in my book!

The Contenders

11Youmu Konpaku

Who dislikes a half-ghost kid with swords?


We all know why shes so adorable.

We need her in 9th place. She's the breast!

This is by far the strongest character in Gensokyo. Hail Cirno, the strongest.

14Kaguya Houraisan

Immortal, playful and downright powerful. Kaguya's backstory may involve her being selfish but if you were a incredibly powerful, immortal moon princess; wouldn't you be too?

She is a princess and immortal. what can you ask more

Kaguya has one of the best history in touhou. She fled from the moon because she drank a forbidden potion, when men started to court her she made them do impossible thing, and has an infinite rivalry with Mokou, though she dosen't take it seriously.

18Yuyuko Saigyouji

Her power is almost the ultimate power of all. She can manipulate your life if she wants to, also she can control departed souls. She is almost invincible, due to the fact she is already dead, and thus can not be really wounded.
But also she has knowledge about the situation, she usually talk with nonsensical and bizarre remarks or overlook the obvius, but she really has an extraordinary amouunt of knowledge. Also she is cheerful and friendly.
Yuyuko to the win!

19Komachi Onozuka

I just like scythes and her slacking style is really cool.
