Yuugi Hoshiguma


The Spoken-of Unexplainable Phenomena

Yuugi Hoshiguma's usual outfit. It features a white shirt and a unique long skirt.

Kabukimono of the Former Capital

Another one of Yuugi's usual outfits. Is she deliberately wearing clothes that lack maneuverability as a handicap?

Vengeful Spirit Cleaner Maid

A maid uniform provided for Yuugi. It comes with a mysterious vacuum cleaner that was stored away in the maid storeroom.

Temperament: Supercell

Supercell (a Touhou LW original) refers to massive thunderstorms formed from a single storm cell. This could be considered a fitting temperament for Yuugi, as these thunderstorms invoke spine-chilling dread and cause tremendous damage. Yuugi is endowed with Metal Phase, the element of the oni, and Star Essence, as she submits to no rules or regulations that impede her enjoyment.

Ability: Capable of wielding unexplainable phenomena

Yuugi Hoshiguma's ability lets her use phenomena that are said to be so incomprehensible that it should not even be possible to discuss them. These unexplainable phenomena that those who value reason and logic hesitate to talk about are as follows: Anomalies: Mysterious and unnatural occurrences. Strength: Courage and inexplicable feats of raw might. Disorder: Immoral antisocial behavior and rebellion. Spirits: Beings like gods and demons that cannot be seen and surpass human understanding. However, Yuugi is an oni, and that which is unexplainable is the domain of oni and youkai. Furthermore, the fact that Yuugi is the "Spoken of" Unexplainable Phenomena means that such phenomena become rumors and are talked about in the Human Village, which is quite handy since the continued existence of youkai is dependant on humans fearing them. Yuugi is a prime example of a youkai who has adapted to the current Gensokyo, as her day-to-day consists of pacifying vengeful spirits, taking it easy in Former Hell, and letting off steam by testing her strength whenever she pleases.


Kishin Tenka Arts

Yuugi Hoshiguma's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She calls forth tenka to attack her opponent. Tenka are a type of onibi, or will-o'-wisp, that make noise when flying across the sky. They are also said to be a type of vengeful spirit.

One-Horned Lightning

Yuugi Hoshiguma's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). She focuses her qi into the horn on her forehead to call down lightning on her opponents. In the eight trigrams, lightning corresponds to the northeast cardinal direction, which is also known as the kimon, or oni gate, as it is said to be the direction from which oni come to and from. This is why the Shinto god of lightning, Raijin, is depicted similarly in appearance to an oni - A mix between a bull and a tiger.

Oni Sign: Anomalies, Strength, Disorder, and Spirits

Yuugi Hoshiguma's Spell Card. In this attack, she unleashes unfathomable power to demolish her opponents along with the ground upon which they stand. Anomalies, strength, disorder, and spirits are unexplainable phenomena not bound by logic that the Chinese philosopher Confucius avoided talking about. However, Yuugi is the ''Spoken-of'' Unexplainable Phenomena, so perhaps there is something to her power that demands discussion even though it is not fully understood.

Big Four Arcanum: Knock Out In Three Steps

Yuugi Hoshiguma's Spell Card. With each step forward, she creates walls of bullets to trap and bring down her opponent. If Yuugi ever brought her full power to bear, this attack would most definitely be a certain knockout. However, according to the records of a certain magician, even though this Spell Card is a massive display of strength, Yuugi is laid-back enough to play around with it.

  • Unbalance

  • Strike
  • Third Step
  • Guard
Miss Unchained

Yuugi Hoshiguma's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). In this attack, she breaks the shackles of her self-imposed limits and displays a glimpse of her true power. Though in saying that, she is particular in only displaying her power in feats of strength. In the west, there are apparently tales of enormous demons bound with chains in the depths of Hell.

Skill: Hoshiguma Dish

Yuugi's treasured sake dish. There is no one in Gensokyo who wouldn't want to use it...

Skill: Kabukimono

Kabukimono were flamboyantly-dressed ronin of the late 16th century. Yuugi may seem unruly, but she is responsible for maintaining order in the Former Capital.

Skill: Vengeful Spirit Quelling

It is Yuugi's job to pacify the vengeful spirits in the Underworld. Perhaps she is paid by the mistress of the Palace of the Earth Spirits.
