This is a guide to the Loads and Loads of Characters from the Bullet Hell computer game series Touhou Project and related official works.

Some things to keep in mind before we get started:

Character names here all use Hepburn romanization despite ZUN mostly having switched to Kunrei-shiki after Imperishable Night, as it's the system most people are familiar with.

All examples should be canon or fanon that has undergone mass Memetic Mutation. While the fandom is an important part of the overall Touhou experience, we don't want things to get crowded with examples from a single circle's work.

As with all character pages, be aware that are spoilers ahead.
