** Most of the humans in Gensokyo live in a settlement called the Human "Village", but a panoramic shot in ''Visionary Fairies in Shrine'' shows it's actually roughly the size of a large town or small city.



* SchizoTech: There are actually four different technology levels in Gensokyo: humans and youkai, who are pretty much at medieval level; items that come from the modern world outside (and, in the PC-98 games, came with the Outsiders themselves); the kappas, who are tinkering and working on {{Magitek}}, including Optical Camouflage and Hellfire-powered geothermal power plants; and the Lunarians, who top the tech tree in canon and have futuristic technology, which in ''Silent Sinner in Blue'' is revealed to be a Japanese version of CrystalSpiresAndTogas. Even the ''outdated'' technology that the renegade Lunarians displayed in an exposition in Gensokyo is far more advanced than anything on Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* ThinDimensionalBarrier: The Road of Reconsideration and Muenzuka are places where the Great Hakurei Barrier between Gensokyo and the Outside World is particularly weak, and youkai take advantage of this in order to prey on the hapless Outside World humans who get brought to Gensokyo by barrier fluctuations.

** ''Touhou'' arranges are a somewhat common source for licensed songs in modern arcade {{Rhythm Game}}s such as the Franchise/{{BEMANI}} series and ''VideoGame/{{maimai}}''. Most of the time in these games, licensed songs never have endgame-level charts. ''Touhou'' arranges, however, are an exception to that rule; expect many ''Touhou'' arranges to have a rating of 10 out of 10 on their hardest charts in ''VideoGame/{{jubeat}}'', at laest 16 out of 20 on ''VideoGame/SoundVoltex'', 10 out of 10 on the arcade versions of ''VideoGame/GrooveCoaster'', and so on.

* {{Chuunibyou}}:
** Sanae Kochiya is an unusual example in that she really ''does'' have supernatural powers, she's just way too enthusiastic about them (and occasionally lapses into IfJesusThenAliens).
** Sumireko Usami is a textbook example of chuunibyou syndrome, being convinced of her inherent specialness, belief in mystical phenomena and general obsession with the occult, and superiority complex towards her peers and everyone else she meets prior to the serving of humble pie she gets at the hands of Reimu and Gensokyo's youkai. Unlike many other examples of this trope, however, she actually has very potent PsychicPowers.

* AlienGeometries[=/=]EldritchLocation: The Great Barrier is actually not really a barrier in the traditional sense and by its very nature defies common sense. Marisa once attempted to cross it but no matter how far she flew, the scenery just stretched on forever and the moment she turned around she was back where she started giving the appearance that she had gotten nowhere. It is even described as non-Euclidean.



* BatmanGambit: The entirety of ''Silent Sinner in Blue'' is Yukari using one to troll Eirin while wrapped in a XanatosGambit.

** Gensokyo's secondary barrier, described as the Boundary of Fantasy and Reality, was erected by Yukari Yakumo alone about 500 years ago, and covers the entire world, beckoning youkai from even outside Japan and the rest of Asia to head to Gensokyo.



** The residents of the underground are mostly youkai who are hated or feared, usually for their power. A notable example is the [[MindReading satori species]]. According to Hatate's comments from ''Double Spoiler'' on Satori's spells, there used to be many satoris on Youkai Mountain, but they were banished to [[FantasticGhetto the underground]] because of their [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead ability to read other people's mind]].

* FollowTheLeader:
** ''Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream'' was made shortly after ''VideoGame/TwinkleStarSprites''.
** ''VideoGame/{{Seihou}}'' was rather obviously inspired by ''Touhou''.
** ''[[http://www.kongregate.com/games/kupo707/bullet-heaven Bullet Heaven]]'', a sort of 'westernized' ''Touhou'' game--the achievements have shoutouts to ''Imperishable Night'' and ''Ten Desires''.
** ''[[http://dagobah.net/flash/Project_Nize_Festival.swf Project Nite Festival]]'' combines the bomb-power system from ''Mountain of Faith'' with a gameplay similar to ''Imperishable Night'', custom characters and spellcards.
