Top Ten Touhou Characters

The top ten most liked characters from every Touhou Game.

The Top Ten

1 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!

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

LOL what

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

2 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)...

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!

FUN FACT: even she has OP ability, she still not the strongest character in touhou

3 Marisa 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.

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

The funniest one :D

4 Flandre 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!

Flandre truly is the most Popular and Powerful character in the series and she really should have been in more games

5 Reisen Udongein Inaba

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

Loli bunny is best bunny. - HarunaKaiNi

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

Kawaii ~ Her mazeran edition is good to! Bunnies!
I don't kknow how this can not be first!

6 Sakuya 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!

Two words: 'ZA WARUDO! '

She is the strongest fairy!

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!

"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

9 Remilia 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

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.

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

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!

love her

The Newcomers

? Tenshi Hinanawi

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

? Sekibanki

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.

12 Youmu Konpaku

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.

13 Mima

She is cute

14 Koishi Komeiji

I love her so much shes so cute.

I love her. :D

3rd eye - THE BEST

15 Fujiwara no Mokou

She is immortal, and she can burn everything

Pure epicness she seems in human form plus flames :3

She's an EX Boss of Imperishable Night incident.

And her Powers are god-like

16 Mizuhashi Parsee
17 Kaguya 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.

Kaguya is an awesome immortal princess! With brilliant spellcards and a superb theme!

18 Kotohime
19 Byakuren Hijiri

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 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!
