* ''ComicBook/TheUltimates2015'' points out that Master Chaos, an AnthropomorphicPersonification of chaos, doesn't make a whole lot of sense if he's part of a balanced system with his counterpart, Lord Order, and is therefore inherently weaker than his brother.

** Youmu Konpaku. She is [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human]] and half-ghost (which as a form of [[TheUndead undead]] are themselves oxymoronic), with her ghost half existing as a normally formless white cloud separate from her physical body. How it's possible to be half-human and half-ghost, even in the bizarre world of Gensokyou where [[MemeticMutation you can't let yourself be held back by common sense]], is never explained. [[VoodooShark Apparently it's genetic]], as her father Youki Konpaku is the same way.
** Koishi Komeiji, [[BonusBoss extra stage boss]] of ''Subterranean Animism''. Like her sister, she is a Satori, a youkai species that [[PowerIncontinence constantly]] [[{{Telepathy}} reads the minds]] [[ForgotAboutTheMindReader of everyone]] [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead around them]]. Koishi solved this problem by permanently closing her mind-reading [[ExtraEyes third eye]] (located on her [[EyesDoNotBelongThere external heart]]) which had the unforeseen side-effect of [[EmptyShell sealing off her heart and mind]], leaving her to operate solely via her subconscious. The result is a mind-reader that cannot read minds; not even her own. In ''Symposium of Post-Mysticism'', Buddhist monk Byakuren Hijiri describes her state as being close to Enlightenment and expresses a strong desire to meet her and recruit her to her temple.
** Hata no Kokoro's [[BossSubtitles title]] is "[[MoodSwinger The Expressive]] [[EmotionlessGirl Poker]] [[FrozenFace Face]]". She does this by wearing a set of masks representing emotions (which, incidentally, are all her, since she is a tsukumogami). [[{{Foil}} This is possibly the reason why Koishi was made a playable character in the game that introduced her]].
