Top Ten Touhou Characters

The top ten most liked characters from every Touhou Game.
The Top Ten
1 Marisa Kirisame

Marisa Kirisame is the best Touhou character I have ever seen! She is the reason why I like Touhou!
She born as a human without powers but she works so hard to get this results. Aren't like Reimu Hakurei, she born to have powers but she is lazy.
And I like Marisa's personality too! She is a very determined and strong girl. She won't show her weakness to others and fight with all her strength. She is very honest and a funny burglar too

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.

She;s just so awesome! Think of what Touhou would be like without her! She should be number 1! All her badassery at danmaku came from hard work and as far as I've seen, her danmaku is the prettiest, coolest, and possibly one the most powerful.

2 Reimu 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!

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

Reimu is the reason I discover Touhou. Best design and her looks overall!

3 Reisen Udongein Inaba

Well I think that all of the characters are sexy, but compared to this, it's nothing.

I find the ability to controll sanity to be quite original, as it's diffirent than indirectly controlling sanity via mind controll.

Reisen has been my favorite touhou for a while!

4 Alice Margatroid

"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

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

5 Sakuya Izayoi

Graceful, elegant, and has almost complete control of time. Sakura Izayoi is my favorite character and the first character I got introduced to when I started playing Touhou! Like, seriously she can beat Yukari by just stopping time and aim thousands of silver knives at her.

Her ability to time stop is over powered, throwing knives, and just having the ability to make anything appear out of no where with her ability to the human eye.

For them Pokemon fans out there, she is the touhou equivalent of Dialga! She is a ' beautiful maid that throws knives with deadly accuracy! She can stop time! And she's got pa- * knifed *

6 Cirno

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

The fact that she is not #1 at the moment is insulting.

Cirno I don't know what to say she is just awesome.

7 Yukari 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)...

What's left to say? She can do /any damn thing she wants/ and not die because she can just separate the boundary of life and death. Hot, laid back, powerful, owns an army of youkai... Find ONE reason to not think so.

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!

8 Flandre Scarlet

Flandre is definitely the best character out of all the other options, Her design is so cute especially the rainbow gem wings! And her power is really cool. I mean she can destroy anything by squeezing it in her hand and her outfit is so cute! She is such an awesome character.

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.

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.

9 Koishi Komeiji

Koishi is powerful and just wanders aimlessly around. Giving her the dumb and cute character who is actually really powerful. Her theme is absolutely amazing.

She closed her 3rd eye to stop hearing thoughts but accidentally became unconscious. Now she walks around completely unconscious doing whatever. Best character. ps. If you saw her you wouldn't know it as she is only detected by the unconscious mind and cannot be remembered.

I love her so much shes so cute.

10 Patchouli Knowledge

She have the ability to manipulate 7 elements, while only 5 of them is enough to create life on earth. And just with 5 elements, "Fire Water Wood Metal Earth Sign: Philosopher's Stone" has already been one of the most powerful spellcard in the game. If she didn't have poor health / physical abilities, think what will happen if she's able to research and really cast an amazing 7-element spell? She's the best witch / magician in my opinion, far more powerful than Marisa and Alice. I mean... without her casual asthma

She is a good character. She would be great protagonist, a great supporting character or even a great episodic character. She has a lot of knowledge (heh) and a good amount of specific character flaws. She is also very relatable to me.

I just can't help but love Patchouli. Mainly because of her looks, but then there's her attitude. I personally am into that slightly rude type she is, and then comes that part which likes to gather information or -knowledge- which I also feel lightly identified with. Also, bookworms just... Ahh~.

The Contenders
11 Utsuho Reiuji

Best remixes, best art, best design and good character. And she's practically the only Touhou character that tried to take over the world. Oh, and she's a great main on Hisoutensoku.

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

12 Remilia Scarlet

Remilia is so overrated. She mooches off Flandre and Sakuya in the fandom and wouldn't be so popular if it weren't for those two. And I don't THINK she can really manipulate fate. According to Akyuu, her real power is to make someone more likely to encounter rare things, so it's probably the ability to give/take away luck. And don't forget we're talking about a little brat here. She lied about being related to Count Tepes so this whole fate nonsense could also be a bold-faced lie, especially considering this ability can only ever be canonically READ about and all evidence comes from Akyuu, who thinks Mokou came from a family of ninjas, Kaguya and Eirin are humans and doesn't know some things about certain characters. Also, everything about Remilia's powers come with 'it is said' or 'theoratically'.Don't just take things at face value people, I'm sick of seeing Remilia near the top of powerful character lists for some unclear and possibly unreal ability.

13 Mima
14 Youmu Konpaku

Cute faces, dresses, and personality. And yes, not as elegant as Sakuya but her serious attitude is really cute combined with her personality. Has cute portable flying ghosthalf pillow.

Who dislikes a half-ghost kid with swords?

No no, Youmu. You're the cutest person I've ever had.

15 Fujiwara no Mokou

For goodness sake, she is immortal!
She may feel injuries, but still, she can't die. Honestly.

She manages to be cool even with all her bows. Her theme is absolutely amazing.

Hottest touhou. (See what I did there? )

16 Mizuhashi Parsee

Parsee is my favorite Touhou character!

17 Kotohime
18 Byakuren Hijiri

Byakuren is one of my favorite characters because: 1) She has one of the best themes in UFO, 2) She has a good backstory, what with her helping youkai and humans, 3) She is nice to almost everyone (No wonder they call her Saint! ), and 4) Her combat moves are really cool. I think my favorite spells from her are Great Magic (Devil's Recitation) and Heaven Sign (Great Trichiliocosm Master).

One of my favorite characters; awesome backstory, probably one of the nicest characters in the series, and she's really pretty.

19 Medicine Melancholy
20 Shinki
21 Sagume Kishin

Her design is top notch, the fact that her one wing and silver hair resembles Sephiroth is also a cool detail. Not to forget, her ability to affect the future in the opposite way of her words is really unique and cool

22 Yuyuko 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!

Fandom treats her really bad. She is not a vacuum. She just eats a little too much. I also like her past, design, and her attacks! Her danmaku is beautiful especially when she opens her fan. Beautiful butterfly lady 4 life!

The definition of elegance itself.

23 Suika Ibuki

Suika is incredibly strong. Being able to control density, she could just spread herself as mist in whole Gensokyo. In matters of raw strength, her power is unmatched.

I also love her chill character. She's not the type of person that get's mad, she just really loves her sake.

She has a gourd that produces infinite alcohol. Sidenote a very good character lives inside of said gourd.

How come two of some of my favorite characters in fiction have Ibuki in the name? Damn son

24 Sekibanki

I want her head. Without the joke, she seems like a really shy and cute person/little monster. Not a scary, Dullahan but can be.

She made me lose my head.
