* MundaneMadeAwesome: ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''-related items are presented with much more dramatic fanfare than the normal items. How much? Finding Remilia's full ''JoJo'' collection causes the earthquake in the Scarlet Mansion.

A fan-made crossover game of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{EarthBound}}''/''VideoGame/{{MOTHER}}'', made in RPGMaker 2000 by 'S'.

The game begins when a Meteor crashes into Gensokyo. After Reimu and Marisa fight of the mysterious alien that arrived with it, they find an unconscious boy nearby, who reveals that he has no memories. Soon after, things go to hell in Gensokyo. Not that that stops the lightheartedness and endless references to other works.

The translated game can be found [[http://vgboy.dabomstew.com/other/touhoumother.htm here]], while a playthrough can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7A5FA573D8EB138B here]]. A sequel to the game, ''Return of Touhou Mother'', was released on September 1st [[http://vgperson.com/games/touhoumotherreturn.htm here]], and the translator, vgperson, did playthrough videos of it before release [[http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCD0138885284D835 here.]]

* DarkerAndEdgier: While the first game has a large number of lighthearted and comical moments in the middle of everything, [[spoiler:Gensokyo's industrialization and the human/youkai conflict it escalates]] are always taken quite seriously. The sequel takes a pretty hard hit of CerebusSyndrome as well, to the point where you have to squint for any humour that isn't in the battles.
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler:Tenshi in the sequel, after realizing the consequences of her action six months ago and subsequent punishment, she finds no more reason to live anymore and is all too willing to end it all. She gets better with help from Ness, Paula, and some self-introspection.]]
* DemotedToExtra: While the gameplay leans decidedly towards the ''MOTHER'' side of things, the characters from said series are for the most part pushed to the wayside - even [[MOTHER3 Lucas and Claus]] are mere side characters. [[spoiler:There's a reason for this.]]
** Not so on the sequel though, where Ness enters the scene proper as a playable and important character.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: Tenshi]] works against the heroes more than almost anyone else, [[spoiler: effortlessly beats down Remilia and ''Yukari'']], and unlike the other Touhou characters is never persuaded to switch sides [[spoiler: until the very end of the game, after Porky [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness turns her into a robot]] to cover his escape.]]

Simply making a permanent bridge to the outside world to allow Gensokyo's residents to come and go as they please. Reimu mercilessly lampshades it in the epilogue, but doesn't deny that it wouldn't have worked if the party hadn't defeated/browbeat pretty much everyone in Gensokyo beforehand, showing them that the humans' and youkais' mutual hate of each other ended up causing nothing but destruction.]]
