We've discussed who's the strongest touhoe many a time, /jp/. But who's the smartest?

Yukari has everything going according to plan, Eirin's the sage of the moon, Yuyuko's quite smart behind her silly facade and Marisa's shown herself to be quite intelligent from time to time.

Remember that Marisa, Alice, and Patchoulli are all literate magic-users. Presumably with high int scores.

Marisa's not a magician youkai or anything, just a normal human so she's had to have done extensive studying for her magic and such.

Eirin is the smartest. Yukari and Yuyuko are more cunning. Marisa's dumb.

not really, she's just a thief using magic devices. she dresses up like a stereotyped witch because she likes playing magician

>> No.1022925

I remember something about how she used mushrooms as fuel for her magic, and how she actually tests out and records what works and what doesn't. She may be flamboyant and talkative, but I don't think she's a complete idiot.

Wikia says both Alice and Patchouli are Magicians.

Exactly why are so many people here saying Marisa is stupid? From what I've seen in the games she's usually the one who tries and figures things out, while Reimu is more the type to beat up everyone in sight unitl one of them confesses.

Mima blessed her when she became a Goddess.

I didn't say she's stupid. Actually in the pre-windows games, she was described as intelligent, but the later ones say she's just wise. Judging from her dialogues she certainly is wise, but doesn't give much thought as to what she's saying hinting at a bit of stupidity, on the intellect scale.

>> No.1022999

>Alice is a human-turned-youkai. Magic may or may not come naturally to her.
We don't really know anything about Alice's past. Except it possibly involved Reimu killing her mom. Until we know for sure, there's nothing to show us that she was ever NOT a youkai.

>However, she does have the highest DEX in all of Gensokyo.
Wouldn't that be Reimu? Super Evasion and all.

Marisa is pretty smart, smarter than Reimu I'd say. I mean hard work can only get you so far, she must have some intelligence and talent with magic.

I'd say Patchy Knowledge is the smartest though, from all the reading and such. If she worked at it she could probably kick all kinds of ass, but she'd prefer to just chill in the library all day reading.

also I consider reimu smarter than marisa, not that marisa is stupid, just reimu is smart. She's not as wise in contrast though(strange for a priest, but she isn't really a priest), and that her obsession with keeping things normal is a compensation for that.

I'm thinking Patchouli, Eirin and Ran, each in their own way. Patchi is the literary shut-in type, Eirin is some kind of doctor/medical researcher and Ran just seems pretty smart. Maybe because she's able to set out the rules of the game so succinctly.
