** Sakuya: In the first game, of [[TheGrimReaper Death]]. In the second game, of Alucard. Then subverted again; Sakuya, unlike Alucard to his father, is unquestionably loyal to Remilia. There's also her already present expy to [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio Brando]].

* ItAmusedMe: Basically summarizes Yukari's actions; However, it seems to border on ForTheEvulz at times.

** [[spoiler:She does doesn't even get her comeuppance in the Phantasm stage (we think).as the "plot" is completely unrelated to her actions in the main game and instead focus on her having invited the other girls for a Danmaku festival.]]



* LifeDrain: [[spoiler:Remilia]] gets props for being the sole ''Touhou'' boss to pull this on you yet, but only will do so in the second game; Getting hit by this thing results in losing a good third of your LifeMeter, accompanied by a discouraging life meter recovery for [[spoiler:Remilia]]. On Normal and below, dodging it is easy. [[ThatOneAttack On Hard, though...]]

** The omake with Remilia and Sakuya ends with Remilia declaring Sakuya the winner of a contest to see who could alleviate her boredom the best, and upon the others expressing their disbelief, she launches into an adorable "[[ShakuganNoShana Urusai, urusai, urusai!]]"

** Though, not completely. Critical hits can still happen in the second game, but much less frequently. Still, getting blown down to near-death from full life after eating a [[spoiler:Gungnir]] to the face is particularly cringe-worthy.

The first game in the series, ''Koumajou Densetsu: Scarlet Symphony'', features [[{{Miko}} Reimu Hakurei]] from the ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Touhou Project]]'' as its main character. The story: Gensokyo is covered in a scarlet mist... Again. Reimu Hakurei sets out to the Scarlet Devil Mansion, since that was where [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment the previous scarlet mist incident happened previously]], to fix this problem. Along the way, she meets Marisa Kirisame, who joins Reimu, and Cirno, who attacks Reimu at first, but eventually [[HeelFaceTurn ends up joining Reimu's party]]. Together they fight through the newly built Scarlet Devil Castle, guarded not only by fairies and the other usual inhabitants of the Scarlet Mansion, but also by enemies straight taken from the world of ''Castlevania'' like the [[GoddamnedBats Medusa Heads]], until they finally reach the mistress of the castle and discover [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the shocking truth]]...
