Yama should be on a level to herself. That's basically canon.

But otherwise I approve of S tier and Eirin being at the top of the A tier.

By the way, we all know Suika is hot shit but what about the other Devas of the Mountain?

>> No.10966653

Touhou PL are stupid because ZUN never talks about limits, even most Comic book characters have "upper" limits now those can be raised of course depending on writer but the fact of the matter is they have one

Supes can lift a lot but I have yet seen a writer/artist make him lift the weight of a galaxy

Even Batman gets outsmarted even with prep time

but for ZUN he NEVER has even once implied the limit of Remilia's Fate control Flans destruction or Reimu's invulnerablily

all we know from the side stories is that

Yama ≠ Watasuki's
Watasuki's ≠ Yukari
Watasuki's > Reimu
any character > Reimu ( aren't allowed to kill her and she can attempt to try to defeat them as much as she wants )

Although going by Marvels current run on some hero/ines I'd actually put Tewi up higher probability is an extremely retarded OP power no matter what universe and if Scarlet witch is any indication that Tewi can basically do whatever the fuck she wants which would put her on grounds with Yama and Watasuki's

At the same time this is why I believe Touhou powerlevels to be stupid ass hell because anyone could bring up Hina ( who I guess would be an anti thesis to Tewi ) and since neither have that upper limit I explained earlier it shows how shallow these debates can really get.

Kaguya's power is so broken it's on a different level of its own. It has to do with time frames, i.e. eternity and instances. Everything has a time frame. If you will die in the future, Kaguya can just shorten your time frame into an instant to the moment you die, so you die immediately. Afterwards, she can make the moment of your death eternal, so you die eternally, most probably going insane along the way.

The same reason she would use gaps to steal sake when she could go gap to wherever it was bottled/being stored.

The same reason she would live in a very modest home when she has the power to overtake any domain she wants, or gap in the pandaemonium fortress from Makai (assuming it's not completely wrecked)

The same reason she would allow a ghost princess that she resurrected to steal the spring to resurrect her own dead body when it was Yukari who made her a ghost princess in the first place.

We're talking about Yukari here.

Or we could apply Occam's Razor and assume that those limits are, well, limits and she's just not omnipotent. Her gimmick consists of cleverly using her ability to give off this illusion of omnipotence while masking her own weaknesses and limitations. But when confronted with true omnipotence, she shits herself.

Yes, but they are still primal youkai. Meanwhile the Moon is chock full of gods. Heavenly gods at that too, not one of those smelly impure dirty mud-covered primal gods. And Lunarian nobility such as Kaguya are some of the purest ones, and this purity translate directly into their powers.

Occam's razor also suggests that the moonbitches are incredibly weak because we didn't actually get to see them use their claimed power against anything substantial, and that all of their claimed abilities are lies. Characters have lied in dialogue before.

Yukari has actually shown her powers tangibly, and even applying the razor to an extreme degree and saying her resurrection of Yuyuko is a lie, you cannot deny that she fires an asston of bullets, can gap in trains, and can warp between locations, as these are all confirmed tangibly.

Yukari also beats Reisen in SWR.

Depending on how hard the fight is (I assume Normal is canon difficulty for main story, extra for extra bosses), the battle can be implied to be uphill or downhill.

For instance, Marisa beats Cirno in EoSD as a stage 2 boss.

Cirno beats Marisa in GFW, but as an Extra stage boss.

Does this mean they are both more powerful than each other? No, it just means that Cirno can beat Marisa, but it is a very uphill battle for her, while Marisa can quite easily beat Cirno.

True. But what we were shown was how ridiculously advanced the Moon's technology was. I mean, really, an infinitely twisting material with no seams, even at subatomic level?

>Kaguya is one of the easiest S6 bossfights as well, so her "shown power" is quite small.
You have to admit the last words are hard, though. And Eirin's last word, which I think is way harder, is powered by Kaguya as well, so there's that.

*Reimu ignores the very laws of reality

*Yuuka is even more powerful than that, because of her "ultimate" magic.

Ultimate: "the best or most extreme of its kind"

So yuuka's magic is "The best."

There is no recourse against this, because no matter what power is brought up, Yuuka's is better. Someone has literal omnipotence? Yuuka has that +1, because "ultimate" is used as an adjective in a canon work.

The Abrahamic God isn't just the Christian God.

Also you've got to capitalize God when referring to a monotheistic deity.

Also it's important to note that the Abrahamic deity isn't actually a "he" as "he" is explicitly believed to be a bodiless, genderless spirit.

Islam didn't come around until the 6th century, Judaism was around a long ass time before that.

Also the earliest Jews weren't strict monotheists, they were actually henotheists. Meaning that they recognized multiple deities but theirs was the best.

All of the earliest religions were polytheistic, and in some cases monotheism grew out of that, as people's notions of spirituality and cosmology changed.

Mistake: Yuuka's magic is the ultimate "magic", not the ultimate "power".
Magic, as defined by Touhou, is specifically an art used by magicians, which Yuuka only began using at all at the end of Mystic Square.

Reimu's power is not magic. It's divine power, and her inherent power. She got upset at Yumemi for making this exact mistake.

Most of Yuuka's power is not magic. Anything she used prior to the end of Mystic Square's main game and quite a bit of what she used afterward is confirmed to be not magic, but "youkai power".

What, exactly, Yuuka's "ultimate magic" is is unknown. But it's not something that's been shown, and it's not inherently a "win" card even if it is the most powerful magic. After all, she already had what and might be the most directly powerful attack in the series, the Master Spark, as seen in LLS stage 5, and it could still be avoided and thus effectively nullified without trouble.

didn't the ancient egyptians tried that at one time too?

as far as i remember one pharaoh tried to abolish all the gods and replace them with one.

"The Egyptians did have an aberrant period of some form of monotheism during the New Kingdom, in which the pharaoh Akhenaten abolished the official worship of other gods in favor of the sun-disk Aten. This is often seen as the first instance of true monotheism in history, although the details of Atenist theology are still unclear. "

Zoroastrianism had a single god independently of Judaism. In fact, Judaism may have copied it off of Zoroastrianism to some extent.

Incidentally, Hinduism (and by extension Buddhism) and Zoroastrianism both refer to supernatural beings called the Devas and Asuras. However, in Hinduism and Buddhism, the Devas are good and the Asuras are evil, whereas in Zoroastrianism it is the other way around.

>Zoroastrianism had a single god independently of Judaism.

Zoroastrians aren't monotheistic dammit. They have two gods, not one.

>In fact, Judaism may have copied it off of Zoroastrianism to some extent.

According to this really thick biblical dictionary I read by this one Catholic bible scholar, the Jewish notion of the devil may have been influenced by Zoroastrianism during the Babylonian exile.

See because the devil never really shows up in the Hebrew Bible. Just in three separate instances. Or five, depending on who you ask, it can be kind of vague at times.

Anyway all of those times are from post-exilic Biblical writings.

Also it's important to note that in some of those instances, like with the book of Job, the devil is not really an adversary of God. Rather it is implicit to the text that Satan is a member of the celestial court whose purpose is to test the faith of humans. Because virtue untested is meaningless.

Oh and the snake from the creation story was not identified with Satan until much later.

I'm a bit foggy about some of this stuff by the way so don't take anything I'm saying too seriously. Not until I've completed my degree in religious studies.

Actually, that's exactly what happened in Yuuka's ending in Mystic Square. She started learning magic. She must have really taken a shine to it, since she obtained the alleged "ultimate magic" in her Mystic Square Extra Stage ending.

Mohammed claimed to be the last prophet whom Gold instructed to restore the true faith that had been distorted by centuries of Judaism and Christianity. The prophet Isa (Jesus) is also important in Islam but none are as important as the prophet Mohammed.
But yes, Islam is supposed to be a continuation of the Abrahamic religions that went before it. An update/correction patch if you will.
There’s been religions based on Islam too in the same way, check out Babism and Baha'I that come from Iranian Shi'a Islam.

Whichever one is closest to the truth. Whatever the truth is. And they all claim to have it so take your pick.

Luckily all major religions are inclusivistic, to varying degrees. Islam and Christianity a little less so but overall they're still inclusivistic.

Inclusivism meaning the belief that those outside of your belief circle aren't automatically doomed to hell/having bad karma. Exclusivism is generally a fringe thing.

Anyway if you want to talk numbers Roman Catholicism wins, what with having over a million adherents.
