* You see Mokou's 'rings of death' in the ''Imperishable Night'' entry? Say hi to Luna Child's ''Light Sign "Bright Night"''. It's not quite as bad as Mokou's attack, since Luna's rings come in waves and can be frozen with the right timing, but it's still hellish if you aren't expecting it.

* Mamizou Futatsuiwa's ''Seventh Duel "Wild Deserted Island"''. A wave of randomly moving birds followed by a wave of dogs comes at you from the left side of the screen. While you're still trying to weave through the wave of dogs, another wave of birds and dogs comes at you from the right side of the screen. forcing you to either go as far left as possible or try to weave through a storm of large, erratically moving bullets with nebulous hitboxes.
** Immediately following that, we have Mamizou's final nonspell. Like her other nonspells, it involves dodging through a spiral of large, bright bullets. Unlike the others, the bullets are ''astonishingly dense'', so the path doesn't even become apparent until the bullets are almost on top of you, and then it turns into Turbo Tunnel-esque dodging, where the bullets are so fast that even the smallest mistake will get you clipped.

* On 10-4, Remilia has "Fitful Nightmare." It is Gengetsu's Rape Time 2.0, lasting 15 seconds per phase.

* Compared to the likes of ''Shoot the Bullet'' and ''Double Spoiler'', clearing ''Impossible Spell Card'' using Seija's cheat items isn't very difficult at all. Attempting to clear every scene without these items, however, is an entirely different story. Many of the scenes undergo a massive difficulty spike without items, on par with or even surpassing the spell cards in the camera games. Getting a no-item clear of all 75 scenes is an incredibly difficult and frustrating feat, so difficult that only ''five'' known players in the West have unlocked this achievement. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VInpkQz5Z90 Here]] is one such player who has achieved such a feat.

phase. Thankfully the knives themselves form lanes, but surviving this requires you to do roughly three-quarters of a circle around Remilia, and doing so requires arguably the single most precise movements in the entire series. This is bar none the most difficult spell card to do a no-item clear of, and it is not uncommon for attempts to clock into the ''thousands''.
* 10-5 Yukari's "Impossible Danmaku Barrier" is also an incredibly tough attack, consisting of four waves of danmaku "barriers". The first wave isn't very tough to dodge. The second wave requires you to utilize an almost pixel-perfect safespot to get past the diagonal barriers, with no telling where the safespot is. The third wave requires pixel-perfect dodging through several rings of bullets. The fourth wave pins you into a corner and forces you to dodge randomly moving bullets in a very tight space. The worst part about this attack is that every single attempt gives you completely random waves, so no-item clearing the spell is solely dependent on extreme amounts of luck and precision.
* 10-7 Miko's "Seventeen Article Constitution Bombs" is perhaps the single worst example of luck spell cards in the entire series. When the spell starts, you must dodge the talismans, then quickly go to one of the top corners before the red orbs explode into many helix lasers. The window for reading the lasers is ''extremely'' short, and it is very easy to get trapped by the lasers. On top of that, Miko has a lot of HP, meaning that you'll need to survive many waves of this spell card before finally capturing it.

* Cirno, of all bosses, gets one: the unnamed "ice shotgun" attack she starts off with in Stage 2 of [=EoSD=]. You're forced to make wide sweeping motions across the screens to avoid it (unless you can react to rapidly-moving patterns fast enough to weave through it), lest you waste a bomb or two.

On higher difficulties, the other bullets she fires clutter up the screen, potentially making this one a bomb or two.huge bombsink.

* Before then, to this troper, Bewitched Sword "Shining Needle Sword", a spell of progressively more knives aimed directly at the player while other knives strive to block the way. A pure streaming spell that's ten percent skill, ninety percent luck. At least as Marisa B, it's also exceedingly difficult not to time the spell.

* Every single Last Word. Really. And true to its name, it's the ultimate spellcard for every character in the game (including the main characters)and is THE perfect skill test for any Touhou player. As if the requirements to get them weren't difficult enough, you'll have to capture them on Spell Practice in order to get 100% Completion. Some of them are recycled spellcards from previous games (ever wondered how ''Resurrection Butterfly -100% Reflowering-'' would look like? That's pretty much ''Saigyouji Flawless Nirvana''.)

* EX-5, aka Marisa's ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHSeJj8MMVc Astronomical Instrument "Orreries' Solar System"]]'', which is sometimes considered even worse than ''"Vague Recollection of Kinkaku-ji"''. Marisa hangs out in the center of the screen, while several familiars orbit her and fire aimed lasers at you.
