Voice Lines
Temperament: Mikazuki

Mikazuki (a Touhou LW original) refers to the moon on the third night of the lunar calendar, as well as the phase of the new moon before it waxes half full. The crescent moon is an apt temperament for Yorihime's astute and dignified personality. Yorihime is endowed with Wood Phase, with her flexible spiritual nature that allows her to house various gods, and Moon Essence, which is calm and collected.

Ability: Capable of summoning divine spirits

Watatsuki no Yorihime's ability allows her to summon divine spirits and house them within her body. Considering the fact that she summoned the ruler of the Yaoyorozu no Kami, Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun, there may not be any gods that she cannot summon. However, it is unknown what would happen if she tried to summon Kanako in Gensokyo, her superior Lord Tsukuyomi, or Hecatia Lapislazuli. It is also unknown whether she can summon just a portion of their power or not. Regardless, her ability is undeniably powerful. According to Yorihime herself, the number of different Yaoyorozu no Kami she can summon is eight million. (Yaoyorozu means both eight million and countless in Japanese.)


Lord Kashima's Thunder Sword

Watatsuki no Yorihime's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She slashes out with a katana imbued with godly thunder. The power borrowed from a certain god of war is toned down by a considerable amount, so she can participate in battles of bullets under the same rules as everyone else.

Divine Banishment: Paradise Lost
