** Atai Cirno. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Cirno's use of "atai", a contracted slang form of the JapanesePronoun "atashi", is normally meant to evoke a thuggish, uneducated, BadAss tough-girl image. Unfortunately, Cirno is short, weak, and childlike, so it comes off as laughable over-compensation, serving only to punctuate her lack of self-awareness. In English translations, this is occasionally rendered as "eye", as in "Eye'm the strongest!" (as a type of FunetikAksent to indicate she's a baka), but is well on its way to being a DiscreditedMeme.[[/labelnote]]

* Even in the ''Touhou'' fandom, [[VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey F.O.E.]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Refers to the {{Mooks}} known as ''kedama'' (fuzzball). Often drawn with an odd expression on their faces, their resemblance to the F.O.E. orbs in ''Etrian Odyssey'' (fueled by an {{IOSYS}} video depicting them) have been picked up on by parts of the fanbase. This has resulted in occasional appearances of {{badass}} Kedama men in touhou fan materials.[[/labelnote]]

** ''Touhou'' is harder.[[labelnote:Explanation]]On videos of other shoot-em-ups, some comments will state that the game's difficulty pales in comparison to ''Touhou'', despite it being likely that [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch the commenter in question has never played the game that they claim is easier]], or at least to the extent that they can make a fair call on the difficulty comparison. As a result, in shmup communities, "''Touhou'' is harder" has become something of a tongue-in-cheek response to the challenge levels of non-''Touhou'' shooters.[[/labelnote]]

Videos of non-BulletHell shooters are most vulnerable to this, due to not looking as obviously difficult to an observer ([[SurpriseDifficulty don't let that fool you]], especially if the game being compared to ''Touhou'' is an arcade game). As a result, in shmup communities, "''Touhou'' is harder" has become something of a tongue-in-cheek response to the challenge levels of non-''Touhou'' shooters.[[/labelnote]]

** [[SmallNameBigEgo "I'm the strongest!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Cirno in her route in ''Phantasmagoria of Flower View'', it has been adopted as her CatchPhrase and a summary of her woefully inaccurate assessment of her strength. While she is definitely the strongest ''fairy'', [[OvershadowedByAwesome that isn't saying all that much]].[[/labelnote]]

** Foul! She kicked the ball! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The omnipresent use of superpowered magical attacks on the poor ball leads to the joke that in Gensokyan soccer, kicking the ball is against the rules. A few characters do it anyways, though they all kick the ball in a superpowered way (Mokou, Aya, Wriggle, Ran, [[MemeticBadass MANnosuke...]])[[/labelnote]]

*** Further evolved into [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LnhOWkniX4 this video]], which is itself a parody of a Touhou 4-koma. [[{{Imageboards}} 4chan's /jp/]] has made it tradition to observe this at 2AM.

*** Ne youkaiyskiy, I ne lunariskiy, A ya rossiyskiy novyy pirat. I ne fairy'skiy, I ne oniskiy, A ya rossiyskiy novyy pirat.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Someone posted a video of a Russian porn star and minor internet celebrity filking a techno version of the PiratesOfTheCaribbean theme while (NSFW) [[spoiler:swinging his penis to the music]], claiming it was Cirno's Perfect Math Class. It gained enough views and enough confused and/or disgusted Touhou fans to become a minor joke for a while.[[/labelnote]]
