** Spell Practice was introduced in the 8th main game, ''Imperishable Night'', allowing you to practice individual enemy spellcards that you've reached; to compare, Practice Start only lets you start from the beginning of any stage you've reached. For whatever reason, it was scrapped for the 10th, 11th (''Subterranean Animism''), and 12th (''Undefined Fantastic Object'') games[[note]]the 9th game, ''Phantasmagoria of Flower View'' is a versus-style shooter unlike most other main games[[/note]], but was mercifully brought back for the 13th game, ''Ten Desires'' and beyond.

* ContinuityLockout: This wasn't much of a problem during the PC-98 era and the first few games of the Windows era, since the plots of those games were largely self-contained. However, after ''Mountain of Faith'' the ContinuityCreep starts to take place, and now it's much more difficult for newcomers to understand what's going on since from that point on each game builds upon the previous one. Comments by ZUN suggest that [[TrollingCreator he feels a certain level of inaccessibility]] [[GenreSavvy is core to the]] ''[[GenreSavvy Touhou]]'' [[GenreSavvy experience]]. The various manga and {{Universe Compendium}}s don't really help either, since all the manga series assume that one is already familiar with the games and their lore and the {{Universe Compendium}}s have some [[UnreliableNarrator Unreliable Narration]] at work.

** FountainOfMemes: Spawned an absolutely incredible amount of memes and in-jokes for a single series. {{IOSYS}} remixes in particular have a tendency to spawn more.

** Because of "I GOT CAVED BY EX-KEINE!", it will be a long time before Keine is taken seriously again. {{IOSYS}} [[RunningTheAsylum effectively turning it into]] a ForcedMeme didn't help.

* FriendlyFandoms: The Touhou fandom is very friendly with both the ''Music/{{Vocaloid}}'' and the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' fandom. There is also a good overlap with the ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'' fandom, due to both series taking elements of Japanese history and making anthromorphic personifications out of them.

** ''Touhou'' fans and ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' fans also tend to find company in one another, due to the fact that ZUN himself is a big ''[=JoJo=]'' fan and has referenced the series on numerous occasions in the ''Touhou'' games.

** Fans commonly depict Cirno as being used as makeshift air conditioning. In ''Visionary Fairies in Shrine'', Reimu has been letting Clownpiece stay under the shrine cause her hellfires provide heating.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Alternative Facts in Eastern Utopia'' has also split the fanbase on a few things. It being [[AscendedFanboy illustrated and written by fan artists]] allows it to play a little more loose with Touhou canon, such as having a couple of [[PantyShot panty shots]] of Aya and Miko giving a speech that heavily references modern politics. There is one camp that finds these moments hilarious and argue that because the book is written from [[CloudCuckoolander Aya's]] [[UnreliableNarrator perspective]] it is fine, while detractors argue that such things shouldn't be a part of Touhou canon and even go so far as to claim FanonDiscontinuity.

** Yukari is a slight heroic example. She led a youkai invasion to the Moon and let them get routed... just to teach them that greed and expansionism is bad. And then we have ''Silent Sinner In Blue''. [[spoiler:Turns out the whole invasion this time was a distraction so that Yuyuko could steal lunar treasures. Yuyuko found the treasures boring and brought back sake instead... which not only still pissed off the Lunarians who were supposed to be protecting that stuff, but also allowed Yukari to complete her true plan of making Eirin fear the Youkai when she served her the Lunar Capital sake in Cage in Lunatic Runagate and gave her an unsolvable mystery with frightening implications]].

** Another one exists with fans of arcade RhythmGame players who feel that ''Touhou'' arranges being in rhythm games [[HypeBacklash is overexposure]].

** Cirno. She became overwhelming popular, which eventually led to a large backlash of people who got sick of seeing her absolutely everywhere. Nowadays half of the fandom still loves her, while the other half wishes this overrated character would just go die in a hole somewhere.
