東宝[[/note]] Also not to be confused with [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure the Higashikata families]], for those fluent enough in Kanji.

* OffOnATechnicality: [[{{Troll}} Someone]] tried to trademark "東方プロジェクト". He succeeded, [[ItsAWonderfulFailure but it didn't affect anything except ZUN's mood]], since the series actually uses the GratuitousEnglish title "東方Project". Said person also attempted to trademark that and "上海アリス幻樂団" (Shanghai Alice Gengakudan) and failed.

The purpose of Gensokyo's existence, which was eventually made clear from ''Mountain of Faith'' onward. Since belief in such beings as youkai and gods is rapidly disappearing in the outside world, Gensokyo is a haven for them.them.
** On a more mundane level, Gensokyo due to its nature as a place where forgotten things end up is also a haven for mundane species that are either extremely rare, extirpated from, or completely extinct in Japan and elsewhere in the world, such as crested ibises and the Japanese wolf.
** The "nature reserve" part is also noted in Chapter 33 of ''Wild and Horned Hermit'', where Yukari mentions that she always makes sure to do sterilization procedures in order to prevent Gensokyo from being accidently populated by things that aren't on the ropes in the Outside World. She figures out Kasen can go through the Barrier (And hasn't done similar procedures) because otherwise the western dandelions out-competing the Japanese dandelions in the Outside World would not have gotten inside. One reason Yukari lists for terminating them with extreme prejudice is the dandelions managing to form more belligerent fairies in Gensokyo, displacing the old ones.

** Mamizou - TheMenInBlack: Deals a heavy beatdown, then wipes their memory with a [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Neuralizer]]. [[labelnote:The Legend]]Anyone familiar with the [[{{Film/MenInBlack}} movie series]] knows the type: the Men in Black are the black-suited, shade-wearing, emotionless agents of the Government who uphold TheMasquerade. Extremeness of their methods varies depending on the tale, but most have them wiping the memories of anyone who has seen or heard things they shouldn't have.[[/labelnote]]

** Suika Ibuki and Yuugi Hoshiguma are powerful oni based on the legendary [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shuten-dōji Shuten-douji]] and Hoshiguma-douji respectively, who once worked together as part of a group called the Big Four of the Mountain. The two are heavy drinkers, with Suika having never been seen sober in 700 years, and Yuugi being unable to be intoxicated. [[Manga/WildAndHornedHermit Kasen Ibaraki]] is heavily implied to be another member of their group, based on Ibaraki-douji, who has chosen to disguise herself as a human for unclear reasons.

A notable trait of oni in ''Touhou'' is their honesty; they WillNotTellALie and they hate liars.

* MidairBobbing: In the fighting games, characters who hover will usually bob up and down, such as Patchouli and Cirno in their standing idle pose, as well as almost all characters in ''Hopeless Masquerade'' and ''Urban Legend in Limbo'', where combat happens in midair.
