After Flandre accidentally destroys another Nintendo handheld, RicePigeon's Patchouli decides to venture outside with a spellbook in order to take her frustrations out on anyone unfortunate enough to get in the way; while the character is armed with potent elemental projectiles, being holed up in a library for 100 years does do a number on one's health, which is reflected in the reduced Life stat.

Patchouli Knowledge/RicePigeon's Version



Patchouli Knowledge is technically a six-button character that plays like a standard three-button character, using the Button-xyz buttons for the vast majority of her moveset and the Button-abc buttons as shortcuts; (A)Button-a acts as a shortcut for the character's back and forward dashes when either Button-F or Button-B (respectively) is being held, (B)Button-b is used as a shortcut for the (Y)Button-y+(Z)Button-z input that's assigned to the character's throw, while (C)Button-c is used as a shortcut for the Button-xyz3 part of the command input that's used in the Level 3 Hypers. One of Patchouli's mutually exclusive level 3 spellcard Hypers has to be chosen at the beginning of every match, with Sun Sign "Royal Flare" being a powerful fullscreen attack that comes at the cost of having a long startup time and being highly punishable on block, while Five Elements "Philosopher's Stone" is a passive 20-second Hyper that provides Patchouli with strengthened Specials and additional projectiles every time a Special is used when its corresponding crystal is available.

Although Patchouli is geared toward a more conventional gameplay without reliance on projectiles, a large number of Special attacks are projectile based, and many of Patchouli's normal attacks have large range. While Patchouli is geared mostly towards keepaway zoning, it would be a mistake to believe that Patchouli is incapable of being a severe offensive threat. To compensate for these qualities, both offensively and defensively, Patchouli has a lower-than-average Life stat of 900.

Patchouli uses M.U.G.E.N's default A.I..

Victory quotes


If you can find their weaknesses, you can defeat anyone.
Whatever the weather, it doesn't matter to me if I stay at home.
The power of magic is like those of science. Meaning, it's at the forefront of the times!
More fighters from the outside... I see the gap youkai is trying to amuse herself again.
Now get the fuck out of my library.


There have been a lot of mice in the library recently, but it seems our cats are just sieves.
vs. Hong Meiling
So? Are you properly doing your job?
vs. Hong Meiling
Use your head for once and put that grimoire back. You have no business using magic you do not understand.
vs. Hong Meiling
*sigh* ... I told you not to touch that damn thing.
vs. Lie Meiling
I knew this would happen. The only thing that can beat you now is with the power of nothingness.
vs. Lie Meiling
If only you'd have used your head, you wouldn't have become another of the gap youkai's attempts at self-amusement.
vs. Lie Meiling
You... Judging from the seasons you're active in, you're probably weak against dried plums.
vs. Yukari Yakumo
The rain that falls when it's sunny is the deceitful weather. It is what they call a fox's wedding, after all.
vs. Yukari Yakumo
The magic outside sure has advanced. There are too few researchers in Gensokyo.
vs. Yukari Yakumo
I was prepared. To beat you... wasabi's good.
vs. Reimu Hakurei
Clear sunny skies harm living creatures from time to time. Sunlight is one of those harmful substances that you can't hide from.
vs. Reimu Hakurei
The shrine isn't a good place for using magic. It needs to be more chaotic.
vs. Reimu Hakurei
I was prepared. To beat you... use chili peppers, I guess?
vs. Alice Margatroid
Falling hail cannot adapt to the warm summer air. It had no effect other than causing damage.
vs. Alice Margatroid
Though you're using magical strings to control the dolls, controlling so many is quite a feat
vs. Alice Margatroid



  • The back throw is a direct reference to Vergil's Summoned Swords attack from Devil May Cry 3, including the sound effect.
  • Patchouli's voice is MAGES. from Hyperdimension Neptunia; the voice clips specifically are taken from Victory and Re;Birth 1.
    • In reference to this, Patchouli's 13th palette is based on MAGES.
