* HomingProjectile: Her "Magic Sign 'Bullet Golem'" spell card and its variations have a large bullet following the protagonist. Sumireko's Spell Card comments in ''Violet Detector'' suggest that it might have some sort of living being inside.

* PlayingWithFire: Her "Jizo 'Hellfire Salvation'" Spell Card uses fire bullets.


* AmbiguouslyHuman: They were originally human, but Okina's magic power is eroding that. However, they still retain their human personalities. ZUN even describes their species in their profiles as "Human (?)".

** In ''The Grimoire of Usami'' Yukari describes them as being stuck in the space between human and youkai.


* MeaningfulName: To an extent not seen since Fujiwara no Mokou. Her given name, "Okina" (隠岐奈) refers to the ''noh'' mask Okinamen (翁面), a smiling, bearded old man, which is said to represent a Buddhist god who's often conflated with Matara-jin. However, Okina's name is written using the same kanji as the ones used when writing "Oki Islands," (隠岐諸島) the setting of ''the White Hare of Inaba'' and also where Lafcadio Hearn wrote a month's worth of content for the book ''Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan.'' Additionally, the kanji carry some significance by themselves, too: 隠 (o) means hidden, which is meaningful enough when it comes to Okina, but it's also the etymological root to 鬼 (oni), tying into how Matara-jin was said to be a demon of the yaksha caste. 岐 (ki) means theatre, which ties into Okina's role as the goddess of ''noh,'' but it may also be an allusion to the kunado-no-kami (岐の神), the gods of crossroads, Matara-jin being said to have been one of their numbers. Finally, 奈 (na) could allude to naraka/hell, but it may also refer to a theatre's basement, once again tying into the ''noh'' motifs.

* AnimalMotifs: Downplayed, but the above quote alludes to the [[MonkeyMoralityPose Three Wise Monkeys]], who trace their origins back to Tendai Buddhism and Koushin beliefs, both of which have ties to Matara-jin.



* IHaveManyNames: Apparently, she has showed herself as a god many times and as a god of many different things through the ages, and though none of these names are revealed in the game, the god she's based upon, Matara-jin, is also said to be Okuninushi[=/=]Daikokuten, the father of [[Characters/TouhouMountainOfFaith Take-Minakata]], the deity who helped [[Characters/TouhouImperishableNight the White Hare of Inaba]] and the original owner of [[Characters/TouhouDoubleDealingCharacter the Miracle Mallet]], as well as Hata no Kawakatsu, the man [[Characters/TouhouTenDesires a certain Crown Prince]] commissioned to invent a performance art using [[Characters/TouhouSideGames a certain set of masks]] and who later became known as the deity Taikou Dai-Myoujin, an incarnation of [[Characters/TouhouUndefinedFantasticObject Bishamonten]].

* CompositeCharacter: To go with her nature as an [[OddJobGods Odd Jobs God]], she combines elements of Yukari (leitmotif, abilities and position), Koishi (color scheme), and Junko (general design). Some minor elements come from Byakuren, with the symbols on her door in the extra stage being the same as those on the Sorcerer's Sutra Scroll, and Miko, as Matara shares her Spell Card background.

Added DiffLines:

* DisabledDeity: She's standing and walking in ''Hidden Star in Four Seasons'' and ''Wild and Horned Hermit'', and is in a wheelchair in ''Visionary Fairies in Shrine'', pointing to her being a wheelchair user with some degree of independent mobility (which is TruthInTelevision, as wheelchair users range the spectrum in how much they need their chair); given what she's shown herself capable of, this also makes her a HandicappedBadass. Out of universe, her use of a wheelchair represents her being a god of the disabled.


* OrcusOnHisThrone: In both a literal and metaphorical sense. While Okina has the powers to do many of the things she can do by herself, she assigns many of her more basic and menial actions to Satono and Mai instead. She also sits on a throne during her appearance in Stage 6; ZUN mentions in the ''Hidden Star in Four Seasons'' ''Strange Creators of Outer World'' interview that her throne was originally meant to be [[DisabledDeity a wheelchair to represent Okina being a god of the disabled]].

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: On paper, the ability to create backdoors on anything's back seems [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway pretty lame]], to the point that the fandom has taken to calling Okina "{{Nerf}}ed Yukari" (her entire ability equates to just one application of Yukari's power, and even then she needs to stick her doors on the back of things while Yukari can pop her gaps anywhere, even in thin air.) That being said, the backdoors she can create not only function as {{Portal Door}}s, but can be used to emit things such as LifeEnergy into Gensokyo. [[spoiler:And she can use the energy they emit to create new youkai]].

* MeaningfulName: Her given name "Okina" refers to a type of ''noh'' dance, which is fitting for a goddess of ''noh''. Fandom takes this one step further by portraying her with Hata no Kokoro in some fanarts, due to the Buddhist deity she's based on being closely related to Hata no Kawakatsu, for whom Kokoro's component masks were originally made.
