* UselessUsefulSpell: Using the Yin-Tang orb as a subweapon is supposed to decrease the size of your hit box to make it easier to survive. Unfortunately, it's somehow bugged in a way that makes it ''only work on lasers'', which makes it completely useless against most of the attacks in the game. Even most of the attacks that ''do'' feature lasers tend to be more reflex-based than precision-based, so the orb a poor choice against them too.

Added DiffLines:

* MirrorBoss: Two spell cards are based on things the player can do:
** Reimu's "Persuasion Needle" is based on her normal shots in games where she's playable - a rapid-fire stream of needles in front of her, combined with homing orbs. The stage title is "Normal Shots Are Scary, Huh?"
** Stage 4-7, "Wall-Phasing Wormhole," has the boss [[WrapAround wrapping around]] the stage borders, similar to the Umbrella item. The stage title is "Enemies Have Freedom Too."

After the events of ''VideoGame/TouhouKishinjouDoubleDealingCharacter'', the amanojaku Seija Kijin has been collecting some of [[EvilWeapon the tools that were corrupted by the dangerous energies of the Miracle Mallet]]. Shinmyoumaru has placed a bounty on Seija's head, and she soon finds herself hunted by {{youkai}} (and eventually humans) who flagrantly disregard the rules of [[DuelsDecideEverything Spell Card duelling]] by using attacks designed to be impossible to dodge. But they're not the only ones willing to cheat, and Seija will use every GameBreaker item in her new arsenal to fight her way to victory.

The game features the cheat items mechanic. One of nine items can be chosen to grant her a special active ability and one more can be chosen for a passive ability.

A single-stage "Score Attack" edition of the game named ''Danmaku Amanojaku Gold Rush'' was playable at Tokyo Game Expo 2014, where Seija uses the Miracle Mallet to convert Reimu's bullets into coins (similar to the gameplay of ''[[VideoGame/YouseiDaisensouTouhouSangetsusei Fairy Wars]]''). ''Gold Rush'' has never been publicly released.

The game features the cheat items mechanic. One has a similar overall structure to ''VideoGame/TouhouBunkachouShootTheBullet'', being [[BossGame divided into groups of short "scenes" instead of stages]], but with more conventional gameplay. Seija can equip one of nine items "cheat items", each with a GameBreaker power, and later can be chosen to grant her equip a special active ability and one more can be chosen second item for a passive ability.

* EffectiveKnockoff: One of Seija's equippable items is a replica of the Miracle Mallet. While there aren't any indications that it can grant wishes, it's still a useful tool in her arsenal.

* EffectiveKnockoff: One of Seija's equippable items is a plastic replica of the Miracle Mallet. While there aren't any indications that it can grant wishes, it's still a useful tool in her arsenal.
* EvilWeapon: The "cheat items" gained their enhanced powers from exposure to the Miracle Mallet, like the protagonists' corrupted weapons in ''Double Dealing Character''. Though rather than making Seija more aggressive, [[AnimateInanimateObject Raiko]] claims that they're crying from how poorly Seija treats them.
* EvolvingWeapon: As the player clears more scenes with the same item in the main slot, it will level up and become more powerful. If a scene is cleared ''without'' using an item it counts towards every item at once.



* HitboxDissonance: Equipping the "Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang Orb" in Seija's sub-slot makes her hitbox smaller.

!!This game provides examples of:
* AchievementSystem: With upside-down trophies, naturally.
* AutoRevive: The "Substitute Jizo" item grants Seija multiple lives.
* BeyondTheImpossible: Seija is being hunted by humans and youkai who are "cheating" by using spell cards that are considered impossible to dodge. In normal gameplay, you counter this with magic items that also let you "cheat", however, to get the highest rating, you have to forsake the artifacts and dodge the "un-dodgeable" spells on your own.
* ChargedAttack: When equipped in the main slot, the "Miracle Mallet (Replica)" can be [[DropTheHammer swung as a powerful melee attack]] that takes a few moments to charge.
* DrawAggro: When equipped in the main slot, the "Cursed Decoy Doll" item can make itself the target of enemy attacks.
* EffectiveKnockoff: One of Seija's equippable items is a replica of the Miracle Mallet. While there aren't any indications that it can grant wishes, it's still a useful tool in her arsenal.
* FlawlessVictory: This game will recognize if you can beat an attack without cheating (although some passive effects can still be used), and the AchievementSystem has a secret achievement for players who beat every attack that way, with the description basically being ZUN asking people who got it to tell him in-person about it.
* FourIsDeath: The enemies of the fourth day are Yuyuko (a ghost), Yoshika (a jiang shi who's closer to being a zombie), and Seiga (a necromancer).
* HitboxDissonance: Equipping the "Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang Orb" in Seija's sub-slot makes her hitbox smaller.
* InvincibilityPowerup: The effect of the "Nimble Fabric" and "Ghastly Send-Off Lantern" items. The Fabric's invincibility is very short but has multiple uses, making it function like a [[ActionCommands dodge maneuver]].
* ItemAmplifier: When equipped in her sub slot, the "Miracle Mallet (Replica)" boosts the power of Seija's main item.
* NoPlotNoProblem: Being programmed over the course of a few days, ''Gold Rush'' has no plot and features Seija wielding the real Miracle Mallet (which should be [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield impossible]]). ZUN says [[MST3KMantra not to think about it too hard]].
* SmartBomb: Both the "Tengu's Toy Camera" and "Four-Foot Magic Bomb" are capable of clearing bullets from part of the screen - the former works like the gameplay of ''VideoGame/TouhouBunkachouShootTheBullet'', while the latter is planted on the screen and detonates a few moments later. Equipping the Magic Bomb as a sub-item will also add a minor bullet-clearing effect to Seija's main item.
* SpreadShot: The effect of "Cursed Decoy Doll" when equipped as a sub-item.
* SprintShoes: The effect of the "Tengu's Toy Camera" when equipped as a sub-item.
* {{Teleportation}}: The power of the "Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang Orb" when equipped as her main item.
* WrapAround: The effect of the "Gap Folding Umbrella" item.
