Frule's version (2010)
The Giant Catfish (known as Oo Namazu in Japan) is a villainous avatar of Taisui Xingjun and the final boss of Hong Meiling's story mode in Touhou Hisoutensoku. Very little is known about the Giant Catfish other than its appearance and plans to cause various disasters throughout Gensokyo, which it attempted to achieve by first attacking Hong Meiling and draining her power so that it could escape to the real world.
During the events of Hong Meiling's story mode, the Giant Catfish sent assassins her way in order to drain her power, which were pseudo-characters of Alice Margatroid, Marisa Kirisame and Reimu Hakurei; after they were defeated, the Giant Catfish revealed its true form to Meiling and explained his plans. In battle, the Giant Catfish does not use any "non-spells" and its spellcards generally involve causing earthquakes and releasing electric orbs and rocks. After the Giant Catfish was defeated, Hong Meiling's scenario was revealed to be a dream.
In M.U.G.E.N, the Giant Catfish has been made by frule; it functions as a playable boss character with slow but hard-hitting attacks, as well as having the ability to somewhat change its moveset mid-battle by 'diving underwater'.
Having successfully escaped into the real world from Hong Meiling's subconscious, Namazu has made his way into M.U.G.E.N while retaining some aspects of his Touhou Hisoutensoku appearance, such as the Spell Break mechanic and many attacks that are heavily based on said game's counterparts. Being a boss character, Namazu has low mobility and slow attacks, but is powerful enough to easily decimate an opponent Life gauge.
