Touhou Project

Iku Nagae is a character from Touhou Project. She first appeared in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody as the penultimate boss for most characters' Story Mode scenarios.

Iku is an oarfish youkai, who acts as a messenger of the Dragon Palace. She has the ability to read the atmosphere and quickly adapt to the situation, though she often doesn't try to intervene unless absolutely necessary; in addition to this, Iku also has the ability to borrow the power of the Dragon God, including the ability to manipulate lightning. Unlike most youkai, Iku questions why the youkai and humans of Gensokyo accept fighting each other as part of their daily routine. During the events of Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, she predicts Tenshi Hinanawi's plot to cause an earthquake by reading the atmosphere, and descends to the surface in order to warn the residents of Gensokyo about the upcoming incident, before eventually deciding to deal with Tenshi herself.

In M.U.G.E.N, Iku has been made by various creators.

IkuTronHD's version


While this character appears to have gameplay based on that of Ricepigeon's Touhou characters, it is in fact a spriteswap of RicePigeon's Komachi Onozuka with most of the coding taken from it. Unlike the character it's a spriteswap from, it has no Specials or Hypers and has almost no comboability.
