Top Ten Touhou Characters

The top ten most liked characters from every Touhou Game.

The Top Ten

1 Reimu Hakurei Reimu Hakurei

Smash please

She should be in Smash.

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

2 Marisa Kirisame 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

If Marisa Kirisame is offically disappear or died, I'm not gonna playing Touhou ever again.

Her black magic is awesome

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

3 Flandre Scarlet Flandre Scarlet

She is very adorable!

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!

4 Sakuya Izayoi Sakuya Izayoi

She is the perfect and elegant maid

What do you mean Dio got beaten up by a vampire and showed her the white flag?

Best maid - OrangeRin

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.

5 Reisen Udongein Inaba Reisen Udongein Inaba

Best rabbit with best theme!

Honest, she is my favourite rabbit girl - Coin

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

BLRE (Best Lunatic Rabbit Ever) :->

6 Cirno Cirno

I don't know, just cool

Could beat thanos - Uglyugly


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

7 Yukari Yakumo Yukari Yakumo

Her elegant her power her everything makes me like her BUT SHE GOT SIX PERCENT. Remiu, Marisa,and Yakumo Yukari is the reason I found Touhou when I was little kid.

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)...

Just casually opening up a hole into some dimension filled with eyes. Nice one, Yukari.

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.

8 Alice 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

What a cute girl having such powerful power!

I think she is cute

9 Patchouli Knowledge Patchouli Knowledge

She was the one that got me into touhou - Uglyugly

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.

10 Koishi Komeiji

Dlc Koishi

I love her so much shes so cute.

Cute 14 girl I like her

Manipulating the subconcious damn


The Contenders

11 Utsuho 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.

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

12 Remilia Scarlet Remilia Scarlet

Best vampire girl

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

13 Youmu Konpaku Youmu Konpaku

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

Who dislikes a half-ghost kid with swords?

Shes unbelievably cute.

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.

14 Fujiwara no Mokou

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

Just an epic character.

Hottest touhou. (See what I did there? ) - JustMonika

She is immortal, and she can burn everything

15 Mima

She is cute

16 Mizuhashi Parsee

Parsee is my favorite Touhou character!

17 Kotohime
18 Sagume Kishin
19 Byakuren Hijiri

Female Zenyatta youkai is best youkai. - regularshowman

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

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).

20 Medicine Melancholy

Loli + Doll + Medical = Medicine Melancholy

21 Seija Kijin


22 Shinki

The creator of Makai should be 1st.

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

23 Sumireko Usami
24 Minamitsu Murasa
25 Suika Ibuki

Our little drunk oni - she's just too cute

When it comes to physical strength, she is pro. Like come on guys! Like if need be she could literally chuck a mountain at your face. And her ability is MANIPULATION OF DESTINY. Destiny kids. Destiny. I'm honestly super offed she hasn't gotten more votes :c

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

Best touhou

26 Sekibanki

She made me lose my head.

27 Yuyuko Saigyouji

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!

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!

28 Miko Hakurei
29 Komachi Onozuka

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

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

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

30 Hong Meiling

A Nurikabe, they've made a Nurikabe a chinese waifu, she deserves respect

Best girl

The Gatekeeper of Scarlet Devil Mansion. Also called 'China'. She is professional on Martial Arts. But She is sleep while on the duty sometimes.

31 Tenshi Hinanawi

Masochist much~

Bratty Celestial that wants to run rampant? Sign me up!

I think her hair is amazing and she is very strong and tough and she is very powerful she should be 2th

32 Aya Shameimaru Aya Shameimaru

She is the best news tengu.

Aya is cute birb girl. Birb girl best girl.

What 27th place

33 Yuuka Kazami Yuuka Kazami

One of the strongest not really that popular although
I like her being evil but not at the same time. - Coin

She has been said to be "the strongest class of youkai"

34 Satori Komeiji

Satori could beat any Touhou character by reading the mind, even Hecatia, Yukari, and Sakuya. Most people are smart enough to know their weaknesses or things they are not good at, and Satori can use that to her advantage. The fact that she can even bring back traumatic memories or induce amnesia and its symptoms can trigger even deeper psychological damage or harm and force the opposing force to surrender. Her themes, Heartfelt Fancy and 3rd Eye are also wonderfully composed and could beat Koishi's theme any time. Satori is truly underrated in Touhou

DESERVES MORE LOVE DAMMIT. Best design, cool but sad backstory, cute personality... Even her theme is great, in my opinion even better than Flan's

The Kirby of the Touhou series (except she doesn't eat creatures to copy their moves) and super awesome!

3rd eye - THE BEST

35 Renko Usami

Come on. Flandre is overrated as hell. Why not give your love to Renko Usami and Maribel Hearn? If you've listened to the music CDs, you'd know that their themes are just so flipping awesome, and they themselves are just, agh, SO GOOD! They really deserve the attention of the fandom, they're really less popular than Rumia and Wriggle in the popularity polls. The Secret Sealing Club is slightly mysterious, pretty fun, and there are times where they seem quite badass. <3

36 Hecatia Lapislazuli

Wha? How is she weaker than Hong Meiling?
ZUN confirmed she's the strongest Touhou character.
Seriously, who made this?

Confirmed that she’s the strongest.

Most powerful 2hu is best 2hu

also I like her design a lot

It was actually said by ZUN that she is the strongest character in Touhou.

37 Hata no Kokoro

I don't know, Hata no Kokoro is just really interesting..

Hell yeaa

38 Shiki Eiki

The fandom portrays her terribly.


39 Kaguya Houraisan

Awesome multi-staged story, pretty much kicked off the Lunarian lore in Touhou, colorful personality, lovely rivalry with Mokou, and dem looks! There is reason apart from guilt why the great Eirin abandoned everything just to be her support.

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.

40 Nitori Kawashiro

Best girl in my opinion

41 Mononobe no Futo

Actually the best girl

Her pre-fight pose in Hopeless Masquerade is funny and cool. I also like how she talks, and how she acts. They're so goofy and cute.

42 Tewi Inaba
43 Eirin Yagokoro
44 Sanae Kochiya
45 Rin Kaenbyou
46 Shinmyoumaru Sukuna

Smol and cute, what more do you want

47 Yasaka Kanako

My Snakey Milf/Goddess

My snake goddess~

48 Anata Kokoro
49 Lyrica Prismriver

My lil poltergeist keyboardist <3

50 Meira

I prefer all PC-98 characters like her and Forgotten characters like Rin Satsuki over Flandre (Honestly Flandre is my least characters of this series because I find nothing interesting about her, also hate me whatever, if you wants, this is an opinion, not an facts).
