Shinmyoumaru Sukuna


Descendent of the Inchlings

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's usual outfit. It features a red kimono and her favorite bowl.



The Mansion's Smallest Maid

The maid outfit Shinmyoumaru acquired for herself. It's so fluffy and cute that she looks more like a princess, don't you think?

Voice Lines
Temperament: Koharu

Koharu (a Touhou LW original) refers to calm, warm weather with clear skies at the start of winter. This is an apt temperament for Shinmyoumaru, a descendant of the inchlings who hid great power. Shinmyoumaru is endowed with Metal Phase, since she can use the Miracle Mallet, and Star Essence, as she is a mischievous child. ...However, her weaknesses and resistances are reversed due to the magic of her mallet that is gradually regaining its power.

Ability: Capable of using the Miracle Mallet

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's ability as a descendent of the inchlings. The Miracle Mallet is a special item that can apparently only be used by inchlings. It used to belong to an oni, but the inchling hero, Issun-Boushi, claimed it for his race. This means that the mallet's magic is oni magic, which might explain why the mallet's ability is so ridiculously powerful. However, the mallet is not a convenient item that can just be used whenever one pleases, as many times as they like... It carries a price. However, it seems some of the inchlings have forgotten this over the generations. Shinmyoumaru's noble inching family traces its lineage back to the "oni-slaying" hero, Issun-Boushi. The Issun-Boushi from the fairy tale supposedly has a deep connection with the god Sukunahikona described in ancient legends. Sukunahikona is a great god who partnered with Ookuninushi to travel the land and build the nation. However, he is also an unusual god who acts like a mischievous child at times. These types of gods are known as tricksters and are a staple of ancient mythology. You could even say that Seija and Shinmyoumaru are a pair of tricksters when they work together. There might not be another duo quite like them in Gensokyo...


Kimono Pattern Resewing

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's Spread Shot. She attacks by sewing incredibly fast with her needle sword. In the past, seamstresses used to be called shinmyou, written with the Japanese characters for ''needle'' and ''strange.'' It is unknown if this has any connection with Shinmyoumaru.

Ebiichi Giant Rotation

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's Focus Shot. She spins along with her bowl and crashes into her opponent. Her elegant twirling, reminiscent of a spinning top, is like the New Year's Day performances that bring good luck. Aunn and Kogasa would probably enjoy this.

Mallet: Grow Bigger!

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's Spell Card. She attacks by making her bullets grow in size. She is obviously using the Miracle Mallet in this attack... But nothing good comes from overusing the Miracle Mallet's magic. Shinmyoumaru will surely be more careful the next time she uses the mallet... hopefully.

  • Grown a Little Bullet
  • Grown Pretty Big Bullet
  • Grown Fairly Big Bullet
  • Grown Really Big Bullet
  • Grown Too Big Bullet
Bewitched Sword: Shining Needle Sword

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's Spell Card. She attacks with her needle sword and the light it gives off. Issun-Boushi is famous for wielding a needle sword. He used it to defeat an oni, so it should not be underestimated even though it is a needle. Also, the silver blade that Sakuya found was apparently created by Shinmyoumaru as an experiment. Perhaps that is connected to this Spell Card.

Giant Killing

Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). In this attack, she causes a stunning upset, which is a staple in fiction. Giant killing refers to a trope where a smaller person defeats a larger adversary. In other words, it is a shocking turn of events where the underdog wins... It certainly does not have anything to do with growing in size to beat up your opponent. Shinmyoumaru, you are probably going to regret using so much magic!
