Contrary to popular belief, Yuuka is actually quite short and has to float to look intimidating.
they're japanese women from the meiji area, all of them are midgets
Yuuka is shorter than Sanae!
>>34819655Napoleon complex Yuuka
>>34819864She is having way too much fun eating those dandelions.
>>34820471She was very hungry.
Yuuka is even smaller than she seems!
>>34820523Someone ought to give her a proper meal then.
>>34819733Nipples was above average height
>>34822587>NipplesSomething on your mind Anon?
>>34823251It's just a typo. That or the grave sin of autocorrect.
>>34823251>>34827114My British heritage requires I insult him
>>34819733What is it with Gensokyo and short youkai with big tempers?
>>34832103They're meiji era japs or older, and they were tiny back then
>>34832103They're angry that they need to look up to talk to normal people.
>>34834312Yukari has the right idea to get around that
Yuuka is barely taller than Koishi!
>>34838831They're so cute holding hands!
>>34834559No wonder nobody likes her.
>>34819511Contrary to popular belief, she is also quite friendly and loves when people visit her specially if you are looking for sunflowers , go ahead and take them she doesn't mind
>>34883908>Contrary to popular belief, she is also quite friendly and loves when people visit her specially if you are looking for sunflowers , go ahead and take them she doesn't mindI don't believe you! Akyuu's assessment says the opposite! Be weary of Yuuka!
>>34883908This guy is trying to get people horrifically killed by Yuuka.
>>3481954390% of 2hu characters are inhuman monsters, yuuka included
>>34819511Same height more or less as the perpetual midget eiki
>>34903790No fields are as fertile as Yuuka's
>>34898147So you claim.
>>34910874Her melons look really soft in this one.
>>34913472When people compared Yuuka to a fairy, I didn't think they meant she was almost as short as one.
>>34913969Cirno and Medi practically can't be seen with the naked eye.
>>34898147>>34913472>>34914220Sprite comparisons are completely meaningless.
>>34914347I don't disagree but these are portraits and character height discussions reach even less certain conclusions than power level arguments.
>>34914347Thank you for your valuable input secondary
>>34914913Not necessarily. ZUN has published a canon height chart for EoSD and PCB characters, which contains data for comparatively many characters. There are some power level statements that ZUN has made, most of them regarding singular characters. For example, we know that Flandre is stronger than Remilia, Eirin is stronger than Kaguya, but we have no way to tell for certain whether Kaguya is stronger than Remilia, or if Eirin is stronger than Flandre. The height chart contains pairwise comparison data for characters from two games, which is a lot of information. The only statement regarding power levels containing information at this scale, that I recall of, is the one regarding Heca and everything that came out before LoLK.>>34915114ZUN himself said that game sprite height comparisons are meaningless.
>>34898147Eiki is one of the taller 2hus, though.
>>34915307Secondaries still think she's this nagging loli, when she never was in the first place
>>34915276I vaguely remember some official character height info but I was under the assumption he only roughly categorized characters as 'tall', 'fairly tall' or similar which is likely what that above comparison picture uses below the line. If there are exact measurements I haven't seen them so can't comment. Nevertheless using that info in the context of the games by assuming the portraits/sprites are 1:1 with it is likely quite unreliable, I agree. Even so tiny Eiki and the surrounding fanon aren't fun to see anymore. That Grimoire of Marisa art did quite a number on her. For powerlevels some general idea is always present but a decent amount of it has always been fan interpretation and then fans running away with it. It's one thing for Hecatia whose strength is decently well known thanks to that comment ZUN made, it's another when you start overanalyzing these famous self-reported abilities. Alternatively look at this thread's subject, there's so little concrete about Yuuka available in canon that trying to piece together anything other than what's stated, namely that she has a lot of "pure youkai power" you could call it and clearly prides herself on this power, is going to make for a neat battle doujin or a fruitless discussion. The lack of information and mysterious vibe are what make her popular anyway.

It's one thing to make logical conclusions based on the available canon evidence and extremely general properties regarding power levels such as the transitive property (if Ran is stronger than or equal to Chen, and Yukari is stronger than or equal to Ran, then Yukari must be stronger than or equal to Chen), and a completely different matter to speculate based on fanon. In canon speculation, we don't need to be too concerned with what exactly is a power level, as we can just take ZUN's word on the scare information on the relative power levels as truths, and start from there. In fanon speculation, we run into the problem of having to define the nature of power levels when no relative information between power levels of two characters exists.>The lack of information and mysterious vibe are what make her popular anyway.This is what makes Touhou appealing to me in general. In the end, there is so little certain information on the fine details of Gensokyo, that dissecting the entire setting in a systematic way is impossible, and it's honestly more fun that way.
>>34915817Just secondaries? It's hard to get it out of your mind even if you see her as one of the taller characters.
>>34915817She doesn't look all that tall in PMiSS or Grimoire of Marisa.
I'm more partial to Yuuka being a tall youkai who makes everyone look like a manlet when she smirks down at you
>>34934982Gensokyo people are small. You doesn't require much height to do that.
>>34949569True but I want her to tower over me
>>34951049Its extemely unlikely that she would, given how ancient she isPeople were much smaller, and asians smaller stillShe towers over the residents of gensokyo, but a modern human are much, much biggerIf you're /fit/, you'll trigger every sexual instinct she has and probably get pounced on immediately
>>34951103She's not a human, she's a youkai. How large of a body a youkai can manifest depends on their power, not genetics or whether they got enough food to eat as a child.
>>34951103Yeah I know. I’m not /fit/ myself but I’d probably still be taller than most inhabitants. But like this guy >>34951207 said those rules might not apply to a youkai like her. So there’s still hope I’ll be the one looking up and into her red eyes.
>>34951207>>34952204Her manifested size would be in response to the normal inhabitants of gensokyo, not tall outsiders she's never seen beforeYou towering over her would be a total shock to her
>>34916261>Even so tiny Eiki and the surrounding fanon aren't fun to see anymore. That Grimoire of Marisa art did quite a number on her.I'll never understand why that was latched onto when EVERYONE looks like that in Grimoire. Even Sakuya. Maybe because it's a good contrast with Komachi given her being canon stacked and such.Basically what I'm saying is I want more shapely, mature Eiki.
>>34957044>EVERYONE looks like that in GrimoireHonestly, I think that people who get into arguments over the characters' heights care more about it than ZUN himself.
>>34957017During her long life she'd have encountered people who'd be considered as tall in modern times. Gensokyo is not particularly old, but its inhabitants are. Even in feudal and ancient japan you could come across the occasional 6'4'' big guy, and the chance that Yuuka wouldn't have encountered several of them during her pre-Gensokyo life is next to none. She would have no trouble taking on a physically large form as a result.A living example for this sort of deduction are the oni.
I think she could still kick balls really frickin hard
I have a few sunflowers growing outside.
>>34965194Be sure to tend to them well dude.
>>34987806What a breathtaking specimen.The sunflowers are nice too.
Does Yuuka like me?
>>34993646Beautiful and happy day with the misunderstood youkai.
