Okuu is shit (power level wise).
Yama should be up in those top three, she is transcendental law of the universe. Also, there's not much evidence for Yuuka actually being that strong (even though she's my favorite character).
Reimu isn't that strong, she just can "fly away from reality".

Arguably, Yuugi and Suika are the strongest because one can straight up control other people's powers (manipulation of supernatural phenomena) and the other can create black holes

Well as far as spell card battles go, it's anyone's game. If we're talking just a straight up deathmatch between all the denizens of Gensokyo...well, isn't Flandre's ability to be able to destroy "anything and everything"? I know there are others who are stronger in terms of pure power, but that doesn't really matter in the face of an ability to just destroy everything. That said, I don't truly understand how Flandre's power works, or if it has limits.

>> No.11740220

Yuuka being stronger thatn Okuu doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
Reimu is canonically strongest resident of Gensokyo, but only because she uses the power of gods (Which is not her own). Since there are so many gods, there is literally no end to Reimus power, in sense of variety.

Reimu aside, I guess the list would look a little something like this:

Not so sure about Yukari, though.
But I guess the Yama and some Oni are pretty much inevitable.

Well yep, that's why I said she would be the strongest resident of Gensokyo, not the moon.
And while it's true she really slacks, she is apparently powerful enough to take on most enemies without any training, so if she would ever get serious and practice seriously, anyone opposing her would be in big trouble. At least that's how I imagine things.

I always thought Flandre's power would be great fuel for speculation.
She is supposed to be able to destroy anything, but before doing so, she has to grasp the "eye" of it (To recite the wiki, how accurate that is, I can not tell) - So in other words, she has to understand the thing she wants to destroy in order to actually do it.

>> No.11740293

I don't really think the "super strength" of an oni counts as a "power". I think it's their raw physical force of body, the capability of their muscles.
Therefore, one either has to include an onis body strength or exclude them from the evaluation completely.

Yeah, something immortal would just come back to life after being destroyed, or for that matter, "repair itself".
Furthermore, I don't even think Flandre could possibly understand "immortality".

Yuugi, too, could not be harmed by her, as she is the very definition of something that "cannot be grasped/understood".

Sorry, I tend to get semantic.

As far as Yukari goes, she most definitely has the *potential* to be the absolute strongest thing in the Touhou universe, as she can just lift her limits and vulnerabilities using Boundary Control.

However, she doesn't do that. Why? No clue, nobody understands that bitch anyways.

Similarly, Reimu has the *potential* of being the absolute most powerful character in the Touhou universe, however she's too fucking lazy to take advantage of that.

The Dragon is said to be Omnipotent, which if true makes him the absolute strongest. But there isn't enough info on him.

Shikieiki's power is Dependent on the Opponent's Number of Sins. Yeah, she can one-hit most of the Touhou Cast by now, but that doesn't ignore the fact her power is a dependent operation and can't accurately be measured.

So as of right now... ignoring Reality Hacks; Watatsuki is likely the strongest at the moment (there are Shinto gods that can most definitely show up some day and trump her). It's been confirmed multiple times that the Lunarians are OP beyond belief, so even then there is likely a god that is even stronger.


Absolute Weakest character is Shinmyoumaru Sukuna without the Miracle Mallet. Had her plans in Double Dealing Character finished she would have been literally unbeatable.

*Absolute immortality
*Instant ``I win'' button: with her power, EVERY battle with Kaguya is a game of rocket tag. And she gets to move first. Always. No exception
*Most 2hus have 1 magical toys to boost their powers. Kaguya have not 2 or 3, but at least 9 of those. She's like 2hu Gilgamesh or some shit

Mokou has to train and work hard to keep up with kaguya, and even then she loses half the time. I don't think mokou can stand a chance if Kaguya is serious and gets off her lazy ass. it's the kind of relationship like reimu and marisa's relationship

Actually, Mokou stopped caring quite a long time ago. She's not serious at all anymore either, as she said in her chapter in CiaLR. She's quite bored of it. Annoyed by it, in fact (pic related) because this feud is actually Kaguya's persistence. Mokou worked hard to get strong long before she met Kaguya. What she uses to fight her is an accumulation of strength and experience she learned over the years and her possession of the Phoenix enables her to use legendary heroic power. The relationship between Kaguya and Mokou is also quite opposite of Marisa's with Reimu's. Marisa is envious, but Mokou initially hated her but now wants nothing to do with Kaguya anymore.
Your description of Mokou and Kaguya's relationship is actually Marisa's and Reimu's.

I was under the impression that Mokou was the one that pursued Kaguya. Kaguya has no beef with Mokou while Mokou is pissed about the fact that Kaguya isn't her step mom. I'll bet Mokou doesn't even remember why she wants to kill Kaguya at this point.

It's canon in that it's official material, but it's completely isolated from the rest of canon. DiPP does not "confirm" that the killer is Alice, it's speculation based on voodoo, hair color and there being a mansion in the forest. The killer was among the eight honest men, who originated from the outside world, and they left Gensokyo after they were done.

You know, instead of denying everything anyone said straight up, you should actually come up with some arguments. Something to back up what you are saying.
Also, it is a discussion thread, so people will discuss what they don't know and think could be true for the sake of interest.

No. Yes. Maybe. It depends a lot on what kind of god it is. On one end of the spectrum you have those that can literally move mountains, reshape the Earth, or split the Heavens. Yet there are also a myriad of whose sole domains are such mundane things as baking sweet potatoes or collecting poop and making sure people don't trip when taking a dump.

In Sanae's case, though, she'll probably manifest similar powers to Suwako or Kanako, so yes, she will be way stronger. She will also manifest the ability to give out blessings and curses.
But I'm not sure if it's possible to house two gods at the same time, or even for a god to house another god. Hence why Reimu will be more versatile, as she can just channel different gods as the situation sees fit. Plus, there's nothing stopping Reimu from invoking, say, Kanako herself, short of Kanako declining, meaning Reimu has access to most of Sanae's power source and more.

If you think about it, Reimu might even be able to channel Sanae in the future! What that entails is anyone's guess, but I bet it's going to be a very, very sexy situation.

There are no arguments. Everything I said "no" to is outright completely unsupported bullshit, I shouldn't even have to explain this. Maybe you guys, making the claims that these things are actually true, should back up what you're saying.

Yuugi's ability is not "manipulation of supernatural phenomena", this is a total misunderstanding and then further misinterpretation of what her ability actually says. You even have to deliberately add "manipulation" in there.
Yukari has never been said to be able to lift all limits or vulnerabilities with "lol boundary". You can't just make shit up as to what constitutes a boundary. More than that, throughout the series she's displayed the limitations of her ability. Yukarifags know this. People who don't actually read shit make things up.
The Dragon is not said to be omnipotent. That's literally it there. He might as well be the most powerful but saying it's omnipotent is unsubstantiated regardless.

i just realized you might be on to something. I never realize Kaguya and mokou's ``games'' aren't danmaku games, but actual live-and-death combat. mokou is one persistent bitch. but I believe eternity manipulation will still win out in the end

for instantaneous part, she can also turn night into day in like 5 seconds. also making bamboos grow in an afternoon. that's making a few hours or years go in an instant, that's like Giorno/KC/MiH level bullshit there

of course she doesn't use it in danmaku, because it's instant win. incidentally, notice how the girls with the most broken powers (yuyu, remi, flan, kaguya, etc) never really use their power in danmaku, but yukari (who keeps on building rumors around herself) uses hers all the time? I think that says something about where yukari's actual strength really lies

the watch is her mental trigger. how I perceive it is she needs to press a watch dial, but any watch will do, to activate her power. it's like how some people need to smoke or drink to get into a suitable mental state to do something amazing

In BAiJR she describes that she holds the eye of everything in her hand, and squeezes it. She says that "everything" has an eye, in a way that even if she doesn't actually see it she does sense it; she knows that every object has such a point of tension, she pops it into her hand and knows that it comes from that object. Her name of "eye" for it is pretty telling that it's a visual of some sort.
The way she describes it is that it's basically effortless. It doesn't take any action for her, she just "has" the eyes of these objects in her hand, and can crush them.

Anyways, I didn't want to assume you in particular were saying those things. "You guys" was a poor choice in words.

No, and the point is that it cannot be explained. Yuugi is herself unexplainable (kai-ryoku-ran-shin). Her ability is unexplained, but is about possessing (/having/wielding) the unexplainable (herself). It's all somewhat of a joke.

Well, yes. Exactly. The topic they were talking about above is how Kaguya herself is stronger in danmaku play, and then they cited Kinkaku-ji as evidence for this. However, Kaguya is just using the tool, this is not her power. Marisa notes that she doesn't use her ability and perhaps isn't accustomed to spell card battles.
Marisa does not use any sort of personal magical power to use the Mini-Hakkero, and Shinmyoumaru does not use any sort of personal power with the Miracle Mallet. She's just able to use it. None of these are their power.

It might be a part of their arsenal, sure, but they aren't the ones who have that power. Reimu's amulets, Sakuya's knives, Alice's dolls, and to an extent Marisa's potion grenades are not the same, since it's them manipulating the items (and in Reimu's case, it's also her giving the amulets their power), so the users here are the ones showing what they can do. The Mini-Hakkero is an item with its own power that is just used by Marisa. It isn't a display of her power, it's a display of the item's power. Marisa can't copy Kaguya's spells as danmaku because it's the items that do things. She even outright says Kaguya rarely uses her own ability when fighting. It's like saying Toyohime herself is powerful because she happens to possess the cleansing fan; no, it isn't her that's being powerful.

The top-level description of what boundaries are and what she might be able to manipulate does not mean she actually is able to manipulate all of these things, instantly, without limits or strain.
>Saying Yukari has not developed her ability to the full potential is not the same as saying her ability is inherently limited
Well, exactly? You can't assume that just because something might fit as having a "boundary" that she is necessarily able to manipulate it to any extent imaginable. The claim that she can just lift any limitations and vulnerabilities she possesses is garbage.

>> No.11746916

Consider this, though. a branch, bowl, cowry, or roof tile isn't usually the kind of thing used as a weapon. even if they contain magical properties, it wouldn't automatically be offensive magic. I mean, can you imagine the Buddha enchanting his bowl and firing lasers at people, I certainly can't

and yet Kaguya is able to use them to produce danmaku. shouldn't this act of weaponizing magical artifacts as danmaku be considered her skill, at least?

besides, it's scary when she uses her ability as well, it seems like she forget she's playing danmaku and fight like a Lunarian instead (if yorihime's lack of self-control is typical of Lunarians)
her actual danmaku is inelegant and brute force compared to her toys, but at the same time her fundamentally broken ability forces her opponent to play a game of attrition instead.
even if they dodge all of Kaguya's attacks, their danmaku will never, ever hit Kaguya thanks to eternity hax. in fact, depending how you look at it, she either has the highest number of invulnerable cards, or one of the single longest contiguous invulnerable card in Gensokyo (I think only yukari's is longer?)

>> No.11746919

I think Remilia is generally very underrated.
She may not be one of the absolute top dogs, but depending on how strong her fate manipulation powers actually are she may be close. Shame that ZUN never really described it beyond it being able to change humans into half-youkai. Perfect Memento also says that she cannot be exterminated uner normal circumstances, even when exploiting her weaknesses. That seems to imply that simply destroying her body isn't enough to kill her. So you'd have to be someone with reality fucking powers to be a real threat to her.

Iirc Remilia's PMiSS article specifically states that "fucking her shit up real bad" by exploiting her weaknesses isn't enough to permanently get rid of her.

>> No.11747032

It depends on two things.
Firstly, if the stone is the real, perfect Red Stone of Aja and secondly, if putting Remilia out under the sun directly for a while will actually kill her for good.

If both condition stands, then I'm quite sure one can exterminate Remilia thoroughly in this way.
If it's good enough to destroy nigh-immortal pillar men, it's good enough to destroy our beloved loli mistress, I'd say.
Even so, we shouldn't think too much about a joke ZUN made in good fun.

Wasn't this already denied in canon?
I remember reading somewhere that Remilia won't die to sunlight, but don't ask me where. Her profile on the wiki also has it, but without directing to a source as well. It only says that Akyu stated it.

>> No.11747071

I don't remember where it was said either, but I do remember that in SSiB she flew all the way around the moon - and thus, through the sunlight and unprotected by the Earth's atmosphere - and also charged Yorihime straight up while she was glowing from some sun god or something.

>> No.11747075

This. So much. It's something people don't take into account.

For example, just because Yukari has the ability to manipulate boundaries, doesn't mean she can manipulate any and all boundaries. It depends on how strong she is with her ability. Same applies to others

>> No.11747088

I think I remember reading somewhere about how sunlight just weakens her, yeah.

Although, I'm under the impression that's only in the case of temporary exposure, and significantly prolonged exposure would weaken her to the point of death instead.
Or rather, she would be continuously weakened, until she becomes so weak it's impossible to even move a muscle or produce any meaningful thought. In such a condition she might as well be dead.

>> No.11747089

SSiB also showed the sunlight hurting her wings though. But on the other hand, it also showed her instantly regenerating her hand that was burned to ashes. Maybe it's just a case of regenerating faster than the sunlight can hurt her.
That 'she cannot be exterminated under usual circumstances' line in Perfect Memento also seems to imply sunlight not being enough, since I'd say that being killed by sunlight would fall under usual circumstances for a vampire's death..

It can probably disintegrate her and I'd agree in a heartbeat if not for that 'cannot be exterminated under normal circumstances' statement in PMiSS.
What are normal circumstances when dying? When the body stops working? To me that sounds like Remilia can regenerate from scratch and doesn't die if you simply destroy her body. Like you need to erase her spirit altogether.

>> No.11747362

Remilia is difficult because we have no idea how far her fate manipulation powers go, only that they're there.
If she can manipulate fate to the degree of setting the time of her own death way into the future, then she can do whatever she wants to whoever she wants with no fear of dieing for it. That would make her ridiculous. But maybe she can't change fate consciously at all, which would still make her pretty high-tier by being a powerful vampire with subconscious fate changing I guess. Vampires are pretty powerful youkai.
But ZUN has never really stated how far her powers go, so it's kinda useless to discuss. There can't really be a result to the discussion.

That isn't convincing at all. The Aki sisters can throw sweet potatoes as danmaku. You might call this weaponizing sweet potatoes, but it doesn't mean anything either. That's all danmaku is.

Additionally, you can't even suppose that Kaguya would be able to use her ability to its natural conclusion in danmaku fights. It would be illegal. It's like saying Sakuya could stop time and stab you to win, or Reimu could float out of physical space until you gave up. It simply isn't allowed.

not counting moonbitches-
Reimu's canonically said to be unable to be beaten unless she puts timers on her spellcards (「夢想天生」)
The Yama is said to be undefeatable as well.
Eirin supposedly helped found the lunar city, so I think that'd put her a notch above the 'tsuki sisters.

Honorable mentions though,
Yukari is incredibly powerful, but not the strongest. she's been defeated canonically outside of spellcard rules. Her power is probably the most broken of all though, she just needs a little bit of fine tuning.
Suika and Yuugi have both been said to be extremely powerful,but I dont feel like they're the strongest overall.
Mokou and Kaguya have infinity and being unkillable, so they could just keep throwing themselves at the problem over and over, and maybe with a thousand or a million years, they'd be the last surviving and thus the strongest. But right now, they arent.

I still think it should be counted part of her power, or at least arsenal. but it seems we have a fundamental disagreement in this issue so let's just leave it at that

>Additionally, you can't even suppose that Kaguya would be able to use her ability to its natural conclusion in danmaku fights.
she's shown the extent of her ability in-game though, and here's where I think her GoM profile can be reinterpreted. she's not used to danmaku play in the sense that she doesn't know the subtlety, limitations, and extent of rule of danmaku. and so she doesn't (can't?) hold back when using her own powers to play

for most survival cards, they are the ones where the user's ability is truly shown in the context of danmaku play. Koishi disappear from the conscious mind, nue conceals herself, Aya moves so fast its impossible to hit her, etc
hence it's not exaggerating to say Kaguya's cards are also her using her power, through making the heroine's danmaku's position remain eternal in place, or making her state of being unhit eternal such that nothing will ever hit her, or something else. point is, by that time, she'll never be hit. you can even see the danmaku stopping before they reach her

>It would be illegal.
but that's the whole point. she's unaccustomed to the rules of danmaku play, so she doesn't know what's illegal or what's not. or she doesn't care. since she has practically noone to play with, as her duel with mokou isn't danmaku duel
besides, since when has something as fickle as ``rules'' or ``law'' ever stopped the eternal sinner?

>It's like saying Sakuya could stop time and stab you to win
is what she basically do in the fighters. except stabbing someone doesn't seem to do them much harm in Gensokyo, and from what we've seen sakuya has a time limit to her time stop

Kaguya on the other hand could maintain her eternity manipulation for at least 5 spellcards' worth of time, longer than what most non-stage 6 bosses could fight for

Ignoring all the fags in this thread:

Plot armor, ability to us gods
At least at the level of Reimu (small margin of error)
Shitton of powers, measurably stronger than Superman and Goku (the former barely being able to pull Earth), we all know this shit
At least on the level of Suika, being 2nd of the 4 devas
Ridiculously powerful ability, stronger than Kokoro at the very least (and Mamizou)
She's probably at or around the same power as Marisa, being an extremely knowledgeable magician and being playable in several games.
Gaps and borders
Yukari-lite with the added addition of immortality and high-leveled magic (necromancy). Not going to say she's stronger than Yukari, but she's near her in power, considering she hasn't been caught yet despite being trapped in rock-vaporizing water spouts
Strongest person in Gensokyo, most likely. No idea what extent her power reaches to.
Ability to read minds AND bring out memories.

"Power Levels" can be pretty much misleading, because as >>11744285 said, there's a difference between having a skill that sounds awesome on paper and the eventual limitations to use said skill.

Case in point: Yukari. When you read her profile in PMiSS you end up with the impression she's essentially an omnipotent goddess, since she could, in theory, manipulate the border between "the world as it is" and "the world as she wants" and be done with it.

But then you read CiLR and then you notice that to travel to the Moon, she needs:
1) to wait for a special time frame within a month.
2) perform a ritual on a lake
3) arrive on the moon and then fly towards her destination.

Seen like that, Yukari's powers end up working exactly as what call "magic" in a fantasy series. She wishes to do X, but there are a series of rules and limitations she has to follow.

So, unless ZUN explains these limits, talking about power levels is pointless wankery.

Are you referring to her attack on The Moon during Silent Sinner in Blue? If so, then her retreat at the threat of being obliterated was not out of fear. She knew that her goal was being accomplished elsewhere and felt no need to fight moonbitch. That paper fan also could have killed Ran, given that Yukari couldn't stop it. However, she most likely could have. Another reason could be that she wanted them to think that they had a trump card against her for next time (if she wanted there to be a next time).
