** 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.

** While the whole series is still wildly popular in Japan, it's also popular in (of all places) in China and Taiwan, despite, at least in the Chinese case, the whole franchise is about mostly Japanese creatures, and taking into account [[WorldWarII the turbulent story between China and Japan]]...It's also popular in the English-speaking world and also mildly popular in the Spanish-speaking world, mainly Spain and Mexico. Reportedly, ZUN is surprised by the size of its western fanbase. It's large enough to spawn a ''Touhou''-themed FanConvention in California.
** Though Marisa is very popular in general, often comfortably in second place in Japanese polls, she is ''extremely'' popular in the American fandom, where polling shows she resides year after year in first place, often by as big a margin as Reimu gets in Japan (sometimes more than 2nd and 3rd ''combined''). This is likely because she has a western-seeming name, her outfit is that of a stereotypical western witch, she has a boisterous can-do attitude, she's likable and becomes friends with everyone, she refuses to let the world pass her by, and she has pulled herself up from her own bootstraps to become powerful enough to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Reimu. She is also willing to "appropriate" ideas from other powerful magicians, similar to how America itself is an amalgamation of multiple races, cultures, and creeds. These are all traits that Americans would call ''uniquely'' American.

***Made even worse after ''Antinomy in Common Flowers'', a sequel fighting game got announced mere ''three days'' after the relase of the [=PS4=] version of ''Urban Legend in Limbo'', arguably screwing over console players as well.


Added DiffLines:

** Likewise, a part of the fandom postulates that Reisen's Extra Stage story from [=PS4=] version of ''Urban Legend in Limbo'' should be considered non-canon, as it's the only official content that requires a console to access and the extra stage itself is mostly filled with joke spell cards and only serves as a short preview for the incident in ''Antinomy of Common Flowers''. It helps that Iruka Unabara of Tasogare Frontier [[https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Strange_Creators_of_Outer_World/Iruka_Unabara_x_ZUN_interview claims]] that the PC version tells the complete story of ''Urban Legend in Limbo''.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: Clownpiece is a fairy that wears the American Flag as her clothes, and is a complete {{Badass}} that throws moons at her enemies. Naturally, she's beloved by American fans.

* FreudWasRight: Koishi Komeiji's "Embers of Love" attack, formed of [[CardiovascularLove heart-shaped]] danmaku flying point-first and leaving a trail behind them, looks a little like [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything a different body part]]. The fandom did not fail to notice, especially since her ability is manipulation of the subconscious.

* CreatorWorship: ZUN, who is worshipped by fans as ''the'' father of the series, and has even had fanart drawn of him, [[TheAlcoholic rarely without him holding a beer mug or can in his hand]]. Any time he makes an appearance at {{Fan Convention}}s in the US, fans joke about splitting beers with him.
