* There's also Kaguya Houraisan at the end of Imperishable Night, simply for the phase after you "beat" her -- in which SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic picks up, and she proceeds to wail on you with five no-easy-way-out survival spellcards of incredible difficulty even on the easiest setting -- and if you fail them? She doesn't hurt your lives -- she basically is attacking your goddamn Continues! Adding up to an in-game hour each time you fail, getting closer to 5:00 A.M., which [[CueTheSun cues the sun]]... and marks your failure (or, at least, a drastic reduction in the bonus points for time remaining).

* In the PC-98 game Lotus Land Story, Kazami Yuuka. More specifically, the fact that this is the origin of Master Spark, the Giant Fucking Laser that Marisa is famous for. Not only that, she is the only character in the series to be the end-level boss twice in a row. She's also youkai moe, but that's for another page.

* Yukari Yakumo from Perfect Cherry Blossom. Keep in mind that she is the ONLY Phantasm boss in an official game. This roughly means that, for story purposes, she's arguably the most powerful boss in the ''series''. She also happens to have what is probably the series' most famous Spell Card, Boundary of Life and Death, and for good reason. [[spoiler:It ''beamspams every single shot type in the entire game.'']] Combine this with her SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic, "Necrofantasia", and you have the makings of one of the most amazing battles of the whole series. The "Boundary Of Life And Death" is so undeniably ''awesome'' that it's the page image for BulletHell. Not only that, but also the fact that she is the only boss in the entire series that just gives up. This is because she is only one of two bosses in the series to end with a timeout spell card, and while the other one is a stage 4 boss, she is the Phantasm boss. She could have kept going, but decided instead to stop. No other boss decided to just stop, not even the supposedly most powerful Youkai Yuuka. She is probly more powerful than any other youkai, but just don't show it.

* The final battle with the little oni Suika Ibuki in Immaterial and Missing Power: After an already challenging fight, Suika's final spellcard literally destroys the game screen as it continues -- [[InterfaceScrew knocking away spell cards, the timer, and even both sides' life bars as it progresses.]]

* The extra stage boss Koishi is also very entertaining. She has been compared to Flandre Scarlet, and for good reason. Her boss theme is chaotic, crazy and catchy. Many of her spellcards are very creative and/or even sorta creepy, like those giant masses of "roses" during her final attacks. On a more humorous note, she is also notable for her ''Rekindled "Embers of Love"'' spellcard, of which the projectiles are ostentatiously hearts leaving behind trails of magic, [[FreudWasRight but they look like something else, too.]]

* The fight against her sister Flandre, who also has some awesome moves and is fought to the sound of what might be [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic the most awesome boss theme ever.]] It's the whole buildup to the fight that does it, especially if [=EoSD=] is your introduction to the series. First, even the normal fairies have difficult attacks, and then you run across a seriously disturbed Patchouli Knowledge (who is a WakeupCallBoss both in-game and story wise), *then* you get to Flandre and her [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic infamous theme]]. Survive her [[{{BFG}} Big Freaking Wand]] attacks? [[DopplegangerAttack She splits into four.]] Survive that? [[IntangibleMan She turns invisible]] for a ''brutal'' HoldTheLine segment. Then you get to get back to working down her 9 health bars.

* The game ''Book of Star Mythology'' is chock full of original characters who are awesome bosses. Examples include:
** the fourth boss, Mochizuki Ichiyou. She offers a stunningly difficult battle with nonspells boasting high-speed FuumaShuriken, and she has spells unlike any one would have ever seen. [[spoiler: She attacks with 8 clones (courtesy of the NinjaLog) at once, then uses actual physical walls to restrict your movement, then summons tatami mat barriers,]] and so on. Also, AwesomeMusic [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp72V37aFgc plays]] the whole time.
** the fifth boss, Akitsu Nezu, is regarded as one of the most memorable from this game, for these reasons:
*** [[spoiler: She attacks you mid-stage disguised as either Reimu, Marisa, or Sanae!]]
*** Later on in the actual battle she [[spoiler: plays the DittoFighter and has a full-health spell mimicking your own character's strengths.]]
*** She's another case of AwesomeMusic, and her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z-E8xbUFX0&t=264s theme]] is certainly one of the most impactful. It also synchronizes with the battle perfectly, ensuring you'll have a mind-blowing experience with her. Most notably, [[spoiler: right before her penultimate spell, ''Control God "Dakini Necromantica"'', she almost always summons a majestic aura behind her in line with the music.]]
*** Her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LBdp39PBfA Last Word]] deserves mention. It really has to be seen for yourself.
** the final boss, Fuma Mishandra.
*** Her attacks are absolutely beautiful, and make use of likely every colour that can appear in a danmaku game. Also, her attacks revolve around the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Literature/ArsGoetia?from=Main.ArsGoetia Lesser Key of Solomon]] and its 72 demons.
*** The composer for her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE82qZOVXbg&t=641s theme]] is ''wanwan'', who is increasingly well-known for consistently putting out great music for Touhou fanworks.
*** [[spoiler: Fuma's Last Word is also very beautiful and challenging, with throwbacks to other fangames ''The Last Comer'', ''Mystical Power Plant'', and ''Riverbed Soul Saver''.]]
