* CrapsaccharineWorld: ''Neo-traditionalism of Japan'' gives us a viewpoint of the future world Maribel and Renko live in; in summary, the world is what would happen if ''VideoGame/{{Seihou}}'' was given a dose of ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' formula. This is jarring because this storyline is [[CerebusSyndrome surprisingly dark]].

** Ichirin - Hasshaku-sama: Summons the titular entity, which assaults the target with dark power. [[labelnote:The Legend]]A 2008 ghost story posted on 2ch's occult board, widely regarded as one of the best in the thread. Hasshaku-sama is essentially a female [[TheSlendermanMythos Slenderman]], a freakishly tall StringyHairedGhostGirl wearing a white sundress and straw hat. She kills her victims out in the open when they see her.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExpansion: Some of the mythologies ''Touhou'' draws inspiration from are expanded. For example, in the ''Tale of the Bamboo Cutter'', a pair of old bamboo cutters found a baby princess Kaguya inside a bamboo stalk and adopted her. When she came of age, she revealed that she [[{{Lunarians}} came from the moon]] and has to go back, leaving an elixir of immortality. In ''Touhou'', Kaguya is an immortal herself. She was a {{Lunarian|s}} noble who got exiled to Earth for drinking the elixir of immortality, bringing "impurity" to the "pure" moon. Also, she didn't actually return to the moon, but wandered around Earth for several centuries before ending up in Gensokyo.


Added DiffLines:

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: The semi-legendary Prince Shoutoku of Japanese history is credited for spreading Buddhism in Japan. In ''Touhou'', Toyosatomimi no Miko is him, resurrected through Taoist magic. Miko was actually a Taoist who is looking for immortality, all while spreading Buddhism as a front to control the masses. When they almost died, they set up a ritual to let them revive when the time is right. And like most Touhou characters, he is now a [[GenderFlip she]], although whether she's a girl all along, or just her resurrected form is left unclear. Unlike Prince Shoutoku's gentle image, Miko's personality is best described as "I'm better than you".


Added DiffLines:

* KingOfAllCosmos: The portrayal of some of the gods in the series are decidedly unusual. For example, Hecatia Lapislazuli is the ''Touhou'' version of the Greek goddess Hecate, making her one of the few non-Japanese characters. Here, she is one of the rulers of Hell, ranking much higher than the yamas. Hecate being a triple goddess is expressed as Hecatia having [[HiveMind three bodies at three different hells at once]], each for the Earth, the Moon, and the Otherworlds. She also seemed to have taken a liking to modern teenager fashion, as she wears an "I HEART HELL" black T-shirt.

* SadlyMythcharacterized: Since ''Touhou'' is heavily based on Japanese mythology and folklore, naturally several characters fit the bill:
** In the ''Tale of the Bamboo Cutter'', a pair of old bamboo cutters found a baby princess Kaguya inside a bamboo stalk and adopted her. When she came of age, she revealed that she [[{{Lunarians}} came from the moon]] and has to go back, leaving an elixir of immortality. In ''Touhou'', Kaguya is an immortal herself. She was a {{Lunarian|s}} noble who got exiled to Earth for drinking the elixir of immortality, bringing "impurity" to the "pure" moon. Also, she didn't actually return to the moon, but wandered around Earth for several centuries before ending up in Gensokyo.
** Enma/Yama is the god of the dead, responsible for judging the souls after their death. In ''Touhou'', yama are actually many beings, each responsible for certain areas of the world. The one responsible for Gensokyo is Shikieiki Yamaxanadu, who is the probably the only Lawful Good character in the series.
** The semi-legendary Prince Shoutoku of Japanese history is credited for spreading Buddhism in Japan. In ''Touhou'', Toyosatomimi no Miko is him, resurrected through Taoist magic. Miko was actually a Taoist who is looking for immortality, all while spreading Buddhism as a front to control the masses. When they almost died, they set up a ritual to let them revive when the time is right. And like most Touhou characters, he is now a [[GenderFlip she]], although whether she's a girl all along, or just her resurrected form is left unclear. Unlike Prince Shoutoku's gentle image, Miko's personality is best described as "I'm better than you".

Here, she is one of the rulers of Hell, ranking much higher than the yamas.
