Top Ten Touhou Characters

The top ten most liked characters from every Touhou Game.

The Top Ten

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

She is a great character with an interesting personality, she is also the one who got me into touhou. Along with teaching me that with enough effort you can do as much as other people even without as much as them and I think that she shows that even in places in games with all powerful beings ordinary people can do just as much as them.

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 is the reason why I like Touhou. But I really wish that she can be the protagonist TwT
You said that she is a baddass? Well good cause I like the way how bad she is

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!

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

Reisen Udongein Inaba

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

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

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

Reisen has been my favorite touhou for a while!

Sakuya Izayoi

Sakuya is the first Touhou I ever knew of. She's just so perfect. Really amazing abilities and the way how she fights is badass. I will always vote for Dio's daughter

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.

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.

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!

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

What a cute girl having such powerful power!


I love her personality, as she is so innocent and cute and can remind anybody about their childhood

The most well-known to anyone who doesn't play Touhou

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.

Flandre Scarlet

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.

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!

Ever since I played EoSD and encountered her for the first time, I fell in love with her. Her theme is great, her attacks were fun and challenging and she's a very well fleshed-out character. I just wish she were in more games...

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!

She controls all boundaries, the boundary between life and death, the boundary between a pencil and paper, the boundary between the number 3 and a tuna sandwich.

Patchouli Knowledge

I have empathy for her, as having more than enough materials to create life but a bit hurt from asthma must be painful. (Or at least, she had asthma in the game I played.)

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

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~.

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.

Koishi Komeiji

The most lovely, innocent and cute

I have Touhou Kobuto and I have Koishi Komeiji

Koishi is my favorite

Cute 14 girl I like her

The Contenders

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

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

The only final boss fight that truly felt like a final boss fight in my opinion.

Remilia Scarlet

She is kind of like my older sister irl. Remilia knows how to be the adult when there is no one to be. But she knows how to exaggerate and have fun.

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.

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.

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.

Shes unbelievably cute.

Fujiwara no Mokou

AAAAH I LOVE MOKOU SO MUCH! She's just so cool. If I'm being honest, at first I didn't really like her character design, but now I've grown to love it so much. One of the only few characters with pants, lol. Both her theme and stage theme are rockers, too.

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

She is immortal, and she can burn everything

Hottest touhou. (See what I did there? )

Mizuhashi Parsee

Parsee is my favorite Touhou character!

Komachi Onozuka

Since my first encounter with her my life has only known peace

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

Her desigh is cool, and her theme is awesome. Just 10/10.


I like her odd personality, and her theme is one of PoDD's many gems :)

Toyosatomimi no Miko

Better than Byakuren

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.

Female Zenyatta youkai is best youkai.

Medicine Melancholy

Loli + Doll + Medical = Medicine Melancholy

Minamitsu Murasa

The creator of Makai should be 1st.

Underrated character

Shinki, the creator of all things in makai(including alice margatroid),she destroying all things in makai

Seija Kijin

Flips everything on its head, just because she can B-)

she keeps yoshika safe
