Koishi Komeiji is a satori from Touhou Project, and the younger sister of Satori Komeiji. Koishi first appears as the boss of the Extra Stage in Subterranean Animism and later as a playable character in Hopeless Masquerade and Urban Legend in Limbo.
In an effort to escape the fear and hatred others show towards the satori race, Koishi closed her 3rd eye. However, this had the unintentional side-effect of closing off and removing Koishi's mind, removing her ability to have thoughts or memories, and forcing Koishi's actions to be governed solely by her subconsciousness. This also gave Koishi the ability to manipulate the subconscious, manipulate what others see what she wants, as well as making others forget about her existence if she wills it. At the request of Byakuren Hijiri, Koishi serves as a laywoman at the Myouren Temple from time to time.
In M.U.G.E.N, Koishi Komeiji has been made by Chiguma and Biyo.
This version of Koishi has a very projectile-oriented moveset, but her attacks and movements are almost invariably a bit slow. Her attacks also focus on hitting the opponent an excessively large amount of times in order to deal damage, and can sometimes be more randomized than average and hard to predict or use reliably. Despite these faults, she gains power quite quickly, and her Hypers are very damaging for their power cost, and able to be chained together to deal tremendous damage. They can be interrupted, however, and can occasionally leave the arena in a blacked-out state until the round ends.
Biyo's version has configurable A.I. that is at its highest setting by default, but can easily be changed to be weaker by editing the value at the top of her B-Koishi.st file. It has three settings. On the lowest setting, Koishi borders on incompetence, while on the middle setting, she is still fairly difficult to take down due to how aggressive she becomes upon being sufficiently damaged, but is fairly reasonable otherwise. On the default and highest setting, she is brutal and mercilessly efficient.

Those who have played Hopeless Masquerade and Urban Legend in Limbo may be familiar with the majority of this character's moveset, as she is heavily inspired by her appearance in said games, though her primary gimmick has been done away with. Koishi has an array of tools to start a combo from practically anywhere, so while she's no longer governed by her subconscious, she'll certainly still mess with the opponent's mind.
