It doesn't matter if you're a god, power is everything!
~ Yuuka Kazami to Shinki
Genocide is just another game. It doesn't matter whether it's humans or Makai residents.
~ Yuuka Kazami

Yuuka Kazami is the final boss of the old-age Touhou Project video game Touhou: Lotus Land Story. and a minor antagonist in Touhou: Phantasmagoria of Flower View.

Appearance

Yuuka is a girl who has green wavy hair and red eyes (green in some games), and she regularly wears a plaid skirt, plaid pants, and a waistcoat of the same color and pattern over a plain white shirt. She usually carries an umbrella.

Biography

She is a youkai that lives in Mugenkan, which is the name of her mansion in the Dream World. This youkai was the culprit of an incident regarding a surge of evil spirits. She loves flowers and has the ability to manipulate them.

Touhou: Lotus Land Story

In Touhou: Lotus Land Story, a horde of evil spirits began wrecking the Hakurei shrine; Reimu, the shrine maiden, suspected they were coming from a lake in the mountains behind the shrine. Hidden beneath the lake was the boundary between Gensokyo and the Dream World.

Yuuka was tracked down by Reimu as the source of the problem. Marisa, who wanted to join in the fun as well, is able to battle her too in her scenario. The youkai, who was just waking up and still in her gown, didn't fight her at full strength and fled when defeated.

The heroine chases after her but falls into her trap and ends up in a strange dimension. Yuuka (now properly dressed) fights the heroine one more time, at full power, but is defeated again. In Phantasmagoria of Dimensional Dream, being a flower fanatic, she did not want the incident to be resolved so she tried to stop the heroine with her powers. Fortunately, she was defeated.

Trivia

  • Yuuka is portrayed in the Touhou fandom as being a sadistic, heartless character.
  • Yuuka is one of two characters and the only final boss from the canonically-questioned PC-98 era that has appeared in the Windows era.
  • According to a conversation with Tewi Inaba in Touhou: Phantasmagoria of Flower View, Yuuka's umbrella is actually the only flower in Gensokyo that never withers, although that might only be a metaphor that means she never closes her umbrella.
    • However, on the final stage of Lotus Land Story, she appears to close her umbrella several times during the boss battle.
  • Yuuka is thought to be the originator of the spellcard "Master Spark", which Marisa Kirisame subsequently copied. Yuuka is also known for the "Dual Spark", two slightly smaller beams fired simultaneously when she makes a clone of herself during Lotus Land Story.
  • Both VIVIT and Youmu Konpaku have pointed out to Yuuka that her outfit, or Yuuka herself, bears a resemblance to Reimu Hakurei.
  • Though her exact age is unknown, there are many hints throughout the games and printed works that she's actually an elder youkai who's lived a very long life.
  • Instead of her distinctive umbrella, she is shown with a baton when she uses a bomb in Mystic Square.
    • In Touhou: Mystic Square, Yuuka's player sprite is the only one outlined in blue. In Phantasmagoria of Flower View, she is not. In Yuuka's ending in Touhou: Mystic Square, she talks about learning magic. This could be that in Mystic Square, she used her power she acquired in her dream world and in Phantasmagoria of Flower View, she used magic plus getting power from the flowers in the flower fields.
  • Yuuka's known for telling lies most of the time, as shown in her story mode in Phantasmagoria of Flower View.
  • As Yuuka's only known spell cards were used in Phantasmagoria of Flower View, she is the only spell card-using character to not have an article in The Grimoire of Marisa when it was created at that time.
