You have to be wise to be a hag. All the other hags are wise. Kanako is, Eirin is, Yukari is.

Hag isn't an age thing, age is just a number for touhoes. Tewi is, what, 1300+ and nobody calls her a hag. Suika is 3000+ and nobody calls her a hag. What matters is if they look "mature". Anyone can see with a glance that Yukari is way older than Reimu, even though neither looks old as such.

But it's not like being wise alone makes you a hag, rite?

I know that wise highly implies that you have lived for a long time, and while it's needed to be "an old hag" by Touhou standards, I still think Yuyuko is too young.

She's been dead for around a 1000 years, and while I agree she is wise, she can't really compare to, say, Eirin who has lived through thousands of years of Lunarian history.

There are a handful you can "track" throughout history by their basis in legend and modus operandi. Others have hints about their ages that would make them potentially very old, although the exact numbers remain unspecified.

Eirin - alive 2000 years ago, may have been alive as early as 3500 years ago.
Yukari - already an established power 1200 years ago, total age unknown.
Ran - physically appears to be 800-900 years old, may be older due to outside influence of one kind or another.
Suika/Yuugi - one or both of them may have been an established power on the Japanese islands 1600 years ago.
Prismriver sisters - older than a human lifespan, otherwise unknown.
Kogasa - while she is certainly not 10.000 years old, Kogasa's age is only limited by the time the technology to create paper has existed in East Asia.
Keine - the hakutaku has been around in some form for at least 30.000 years, although nothing currently supports the possibility Keine shares the same age.

I know, didn't mean to correct, just expand.

Also, add Shikieiki (lifespan measured in kalpa) and Komachi (potentially as old as life has existed).

>> No.4675180

The thing with 33mya is, when you see a turtle you don't automatically assume it's 100+ years old, do you? And it's even worse with immortals, any youkai could've been thousands of years old. "Upper age" is sort of bullshit, lowest established age should be used instead.

And I tend to assume youkai are created after humanity. That still does mean some youkai can be crazy old, for all we know Yukari may have born when the abstract concept of a boundary was first thought of by a human.

>> No.4675198

>>Ran - physically appears to be 800-900 years old

Youkai are fantasy creatures, they're affected by things like faith. Few other beings have the mental faculty to have fantasies and beliefs.

>> No.4675228

For a lot of characters we only know a lower end estimate.

Like Reisen: her age is "at least 38" with no upper limit. Could be a billion for all we know.

(Well, not really - she can't be older than the moon society, and that in turn can't be older than the moon.)

That's true, but she seemed to be getting punished for mentioning him. Not surprising, since she's claiming he's better than Eirin.

>> No.4675240

Sorry, I knew that. I guess I didn't make it clear enough.

Somehow though, I still like to think that the extremely horribly old beings in Gensoukyou are fairly few. Because if they were all as old as speculated could be, it would just be bizarre.

But I do like the idea of Yukari being one of the oldest beings in around in Touhouverse. Since it goes well with that limited-only-by-imagination ability of hers.

Addendum: Youkai being powered by emotion (be it faith, fear or anything else) lends to a fun idea.

Yukari probably isn't powered by faith, since she's born from a concept that is a fundamental component of nature - there were boundaries before there were even planets capable of supporting life as we know it (although Yukari herself probably isn't that old).

However, there are probably faith-powered youkai that aren't part of an established species as such. Since Layla Prismriver could create poltergeists in the shape of her sisters, there might very well be youkai born from concepts that only hold any meaning as long as people believe in them.

While the base can exist in nature, only a sentient mind can define it. What we call winter will still happen even if we're not there, but it's nonetheless humans that define a certain time period accompanied by certain changes as "winter". It is the latter, and not the former, that I would think allows for formation of youkai.
