** Reimu herself. Some believe her blunt, slothful, apathetic personality makes her a more interesting a hero. Others believe she [[{{Jerkass}} takes things too far]].

** Reimu herself. Some believe her blunt, slothful, apathetic personality makes her a more interesting a hero. Others believe she [[{{Jerkass}} takes things too far]]. [[AmericansHateTingle This seems to be primarily a Western thing]], as in Japan she's one of the most popular characters in the series.

** A majority of shoot-em-up fans, who feel that ''Touhou'' has driven attention away from other shmups, particularly those with more mechanical visual styles. An additional source of frustration for shmup fans is that [[EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame the lore, characters, and fan works are far, far more popular than the games themselves]], to the point where many ''Touhou'' fans have little to no experience with playing them; in contrast, most shmup fans [[PlayTheGameSkipTheStory see plots as only existing to give reasons to shoot things]], not helped by most shooters [[ExcusePlot having little in the way of lore to begin with]].

** [=McRolled=] was responsible for boosting the popularity of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Flandre Scarlet]], her theme, [[GatewaySeries and the series in general]], but now [[DeaderThanDisco it's barely relevant to the Touhou fan community]]. [[WeirdAlEffect The irritation cause by the popularity of [=McRolled=] seeping into that of "U.N. Owen Was Her?"]] didn't help its case.

* BrokenBase: The decision to release ''Double Dealing Character'' in the West exclusively on Playism. Some feel that ZUN is holding back by refusing to have it published on Steam, especially since [[AmericansHateTingle most Americans refuse to buy from Playism]] and prefer to buy their games on Steam, while others are just glad the game has an official overseas digital release at all.

** Calling Aya and the main game playable characters other than Reimu and Marisa "ZUN's girlfriends" or outright ''sluts'' because ZUN gave them their share of spotlight got really old after said characters built up substantial fanbases on their own and the games' rosters became more varied over time. And of course, after ZUN ''got married and had a child''. Nowadays, as it's mostly used out of spite towards the characters, it's considered unfunny and frowned upon. [[note]]Except the rare cases where it's used in a respectful manner - such as the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BjvdBdCCxE Anime Week Atlanta Q&A Panel]], where ZUN got jokingly asked which would be the two characters that he would most prefer to be trapped in a hot spring with - to which he responded that it would be Reimu and Marisa.[[/note]]

*** The decision to include Reisen Udongein Inaba as a playable character in the PS4 version of ''Urban Legend in Limbo'' rubbed a portion of the random the wrong way - either because she is already playable in ''Scarlet Weather Rhapsody'' and ''Hisoutensoku'' and people would prefer someone who wasn't in a fighting game before to take that slot or because of the high propability that she might become a PS4-exclusive character to bait people into buying the game on PS4.
