Not even that. According to Flandre, Remilia is just chuuni. She lies about having fate control powers for the same reason she lies about being descended from Dracula.

She's still pretty fucking strong though, in just about every area - strength, speed, regeneration, magical energy, you name it. Vampires are apparently the Touhou equivalent of RPG players who take every weakness and drawback they can find in order to max out their character's stats.

Then again there is no reason to think Flandre is lying, she's just hard to understand because she is a tad crazy and likes to be a pain to Remi like younger siblings tend to.

Remilia has to been shown multiple times to have chuuni tendencies out of boredom and some odd tastes, like finding hobgoblins cute and keeping a pet chupacabra. Or making a swimming pool even though she doesn't do well with water. (smelly 2hou)

Everyone also mentions they have no idea what Flandre's 'eye crushing' ability is but the way it's described it seems to actually work like the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception along with some mild telekinesis.

No, he killed Turks because he hated their guts. He got taken as a ransom for decades and got to enjoy their company all that time. It is not known what happened then, but most people assume that he was tormented all that time.

Vlad Dracul was the only thing standing between his people and complete destruction and slavery. Wallachia was raped by the Turks, and the sole reason why he is remembered as "bloodthirsty" is because he used the same war tactics the Turks used - impalement and so on. Christian Europe was shocked because they considered this heathen as fuck. Vlad was a great protector of Christianitythough, and beloved by his subjects.

The entire Balkan region from Croats to Serbs to Romanians and so on hate the shit out of the Turks because they spent about 300 years fighting them. The Turks were savage as all hell and essentially a gigantic war machine, a vast empire. Most of the Balkan kingdoms at the time were small and left to die. The big european powers consistently refused to help them.

The reason why the Balkans are regarded as a savage, brutal place is because of the Turks and their lessons. After centuries of traumatic warfare all those tiny peoples simply gave up on the ideas of mercy and love, and since they tasted betrayal at the hands of the mighty they don't trust anyone.

The Turks however aren't dumb assholes either. From what I've gathered they have a kind of begrudging respect towards the Balkans and /int/ interaction between the two amounts to a few threats and then they "retreat" and talk very politely with each other. Fascinating.

And please don't use a fictional book (Bram Stoker's Dracula) as a source of historical information. Geez.

Theoretically anyone in Gensokyo could pick up Reimu's gohei and ofuda and fight youkai with them. They wouldn't do as much damage as Reimu, but it'd still be more effective than using objects with no symbolic power.

Japanese fiction mostly just uses crosses to signify that something is foreign and edgy, with little thought for their meaning. This is so ingrained that people in Gensokyo didn't even realise the vampiric cross weakness was a religious thing powered by faith, and assumed that vampires just hated the shape or something.
And Remilia uses cross-shaped attacks because she wants people to know that she's foreign and edgy.

Personal belief doesn't matter in Touhou universe, it's all about what general belief is.
For example in general people think that vampires are weak to sunlight and garlic. It means that vampire would be weak to those things even in front of a person who never heard about vampires. So if there is a general belief that youkai dies from a bible, it would die even if attacked by atheist.

The monotheistic judeochristian deity says that no other god exists, but there are spirits and such with power/ruling over things. From an average human POV they could be called gods, even if they all draw water from the same source. No wonder so many people revere saints and angels even though they are all servants of equal standing to the same being.

Anyway, I think God's power is greatly reduced in modern society. For example zombies, God's word does nothing to them. You can kill them with a shotgun, but not with holy water and prayers. Same shit with aliens, giant sea monsters, etc.

The Gensokyo system of "faith" is completely nonsensical when applied to Abrahamic Religions and thinking too much about it will accomplish nothing.

The concept of using "special holy magical powers" to kill demons could be considered heretical. Interestingly enough, the ability to "manipulate fate" could be one of the most proper abilities in regards to western religions in Gensokyo, which makes Remilia rather interesting. This is considering the concept of a "Divine Plan."

In regards to Abrahamic Faiths, the deities of Gensokyo should straight up not exist. But I guess if a believer considers the present false deities to be deceiving proponents of "Satan" in opposition to the One True God, well then faith and religious items/symbols should supposedly work against them.

Actually, faith in Gensokyo works like the Warhamer 40k Orkz. Even nonsensical things will start to work if you believe into it hard enough.

Take Eiki Shiki. She was a jizou statue (some kind of statues found on the side of old Japanese roads, giving you luck for the travel if you pray to it) And she received enough faith to gain divine powers and becoming an Yama.

Do you even know the meaning of the word "war"? Youkai can't fight humans for existence, because humans are their existence. And never in history human existence were threatened by youkai. I get what you're trying to say, but this is not a war, not conventional, not metaphorical. It's not even a fight. Youkai were just becoming weaker, that's it. Just like some animal species are disappearing in modern world because of humans. Humans are not at war with those animals and neither animals are at war with humans.

While they might be strong in Gensokyo, their power can be nil outside. Youkai outside are not the same as youkai inside.

This is a clever catch-22 ZUN throws in. Youkai technically wouldn't be weaker if they were outside, but if they were said to cause ruckus outside, humans would try to rationalize it away as something else. As such, youkai -can't- ever be said to cause ruckus outside (besides retrospectively), because to do so would mean they actually existed (for real). As such, youkai that need to cause ruckus are "weakened" because humans don't believe they're the ones that cause ruckus.

In the same way, you can say human weapons can't harm a youkai, but if you were ever to hurt something with a weapon, you would then say "well I guess that was a totally normal person/creature". Meanwhile if something doesn't get hurt, people might be more inclined to say it was a youkai. It's a soft form of witch trials.

Mamizou and other tanuki can freely live in the outside because they can easily take on the form of humans. They aren't noticed as youkai, so they can say that they aren't weakened outside.

Man, you should read less zounouse.

You should understand that all touhou youkai are youkai from actual japanese folklore. They have exactly same abilities, they obey the same rules as in japanese legends and fairy tales. So they "immune" to normal weapons only if folklore says so. For example vampire can't be killed with a sword, we all know that. But for example magician like Patchouli can be easily killed with a single dagger stab just like any normal human (unless it's a strong magician, you will need to cut her head off then). And don't forget that modern weaponry just didn't exist back then so folklore doesn't say anything about it. In movies/books/anime you can often see ancient vampires slain by machinegun and flamethrowers.

And regarding youkai "predators" - back in times people were really afraid to go outside alone in the dark, they really believed they can be eaten by youkai. Every unknown death, every missing person could be blamed on youkai. But how many people do disappear without a trace nowadays? How many cases with undetermined death cause do we have today?

Youkai are immune to physical weapons because they're stories and you don't kill stories by stabbing them. If you just up and stabbed Patchouli, it wouldn't do shit. If you fought Patchouli in her wizard tower (library), crushed her power source (books) and then ran her through with a sword and the blessing of your patron god, then that may do the trick. You're right that the story can change, so vampires can get roasted in sunlight even though they just kind of didn't like it in the original folklore, but until we start seeing flamethrowers as the go-to anti-vampire weapons in popular culture, you aren't going to roast Remilia that way.

Alright, so guess it's you who should be going outside more. We had half a dozen local monsters in my hometown alone, my own grandmother figured in one.

No. It depends entirely on the individual, and you'd need training in exorcism to make use of your power anyway. Bear in mind that most of the religious types we've seen aren't just everyday worshippers, they're gods and saints.

Man, imagine bringing a Reliquary to Gensokyo. Thing would have so much holy energy it would probably project a Youkai disintegration field.

Erm, you realise that all Shinto shrines are reliquaries right?
If you only mean relics as in the body parts of saints, there are actual living saints running around like Miko and Byakuren.

disregarding the septette part, and ZUN being a drunkard, she could be considered a dead princess. Vampires are a kind of undead aren't they? And she could have been a princess before she became a vampire.

But she's a devil-type youkai, which are not undeads, probably due to being a natural born.
The theory behind this is that there'd be a bit of a problem with waiting 5 years to turn Flandre into a vampire also.
If they were both turned at the same time Flandre probably wouldn't have survived the process and if she had she'd be a toddler.

Reliquaries had so much faith revolving around them theyd generate their own economy just by being in a church. Why do you think europeans built all those hugeass cathedrals? They literally couldnt fit all the pilgrims in regular dized basillicas. People would walk hundreds of miles to see one. Theyd be faithnukes.

Saints and hermits are very nearly one and the same anyway. They both are holy people who get spiritual powers, the only difference is that saints tend to be born that way and hermits have to live in the mountains under a waterfall for ten years or whatever.

Sounds like they'd be roughly on par with a lesser Shinto deity. Not to shit on Christianity or anything, but that's how it goes.

I always thought this was bullshit. Like, you can just believe in your ability to fight monsters and it'll happen or what?

That's not asking favours from YHWH, that's the generalized ability to invoke miracles. Moses splitting the sea is up there with water turning into wine as far as a "classic" miracle goes, so it falls under the jurisdiction of her power.

Furthermore, it's just Sanae naming a spell card after it.

>In regards to Abrahamic Faiths, the deities of Gensokyo should straight up not exist.
And according to esoteric Taoism, Buddha shouldn't exist either. And yet Seiga and Byakuren continue to have fights and each of them draws strength from their respective tradition.

I think it's more like Gensokyo draws strength from the rejection of the outside world. It becomes realer the more fantastic it becomes.

>If you just up and stabbed Patchouli, it wouldn't do shit
Patchouli is a former human with magical powers. If you up and stabbed her, she would die if not for magical countermeasures. This is different from a youkai that is a spiritual entity and draws life essence from human belief.

I have a feeling 70% of the fandom only read the wikia, watch the videos and have never played the actual games.

Most fandoms do this. They'll introduce their friends in something using the most popular videos and fan-created material, which will spawn more fags who cannot into Touhou power levels and game canon.

Not to mention the fact this series is just a shitfest of spiritual/cultural concepts mashed in as cute females with bullet spamming powers. ZUN doesn't even know what he makes certain characters, filled with flaws, but the fanbase makes something up to cover it.

You're ruining my life, /jp/.

Oh, you're right. Silly me, I'd forgotten. Still, part of Patchouli's nature is that she dies when she is killed. Even as a youkai, she's one that's almost indistinguishable from people. She's basically a human with a natural affinity for magic, who increases and extends her powers through study of something that exists outside of her. She's not the same as an ordinary youkai whose powers are more or less set and in any case based on how people at large feel about them.

Syncretism is part of the Asian tradition. There's nothing too wrong about all these spiritual/cultural concepts co-existing: they co-existed in Japan!

The games are garbage so the characters are only good for being typical loli dykes.
