Touhou Project

Hong Meiling is the gatekeeper to the Scarlet Devil Mansion from Touhou Project. She first appeared as the Stage 3 Boss of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.

Although she is a youkai, Meiling does not show any aggression toward humans unless they are trying to trespass into the Scarlet Devil Mansion, instead preferring to engage in friendly chat with them. She is very laid-back and often takes naps on the job, which often gets her into trouble. While her mastery of martial arts and ability to use Qi leaves her with no weak points, she isn't particularly that powerful among most youkai, either. During the events of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, she fulfills her guard duty by attacking the player character as they try to enter the Scarlet Devil Mansion by force.

In M.U.G.E.N, Hong Meiling has been made many times by Kohaku, RicePigeon, and other creators.

True to self, Meiling is a youkai who lacks any kind of youkai-like abilities, and instead focuses on close range martial arts. The only downside is that Meiling cannot handle or use projectiles properly, but once Meiling rushes an opponent down, the lack of projectiles suddenly becomes a non-issue.
