A Reimu that may have looked into the feats of her ancestor, as she's exchanged most of her usual projectile-based toolkit for a more conventional style of gameplay that revolves around close-quarters melee comboing and immense pressuring of her opponents. Though she may appear similar to Guile on the surface, Reimu is actually a more offensively oriented fighter with a larger pool of Specials, so as to have a tool for almost every situation.

Reimu Hakurei/RicePigeon's Version



Reimu is a three-button character that is fast and for the most part easy to combo with. Reimu is fairly versatile as a whole, being able to deal with a variety of situations by piercing an opponent's defenses via Dimensional Rift and chipping away at their Life with a few projectiles. Reimu is a Charge Character that may take some getting used to at first, but those familiar with playing with Guile should pick up on it pretty fast.

Reimu has quite a lot of tools for keeping pressure on her opponent. Button-D+(Y)Button-y and Aerial (Y)Button-y are probably Reimu's best zoning tools, as they hit multiple times. Outside of these, Reimu also has quite a number of command normals available. Button-B+(X)Button-x/Button-F+(X)Button-x allow Reimu to advance on the opponent while still maintaining a charge, while Button-F+(Z)Button-z helps push them into a corner. DF+(Z)Button-z acts as a psuedo-launcher, allowing Reimu to follow up with combos. Like most of RicePigeon's character's Reimu also has a grounded overhead attack in Button-F+(Y)Button-y, though it loses its overhead property if cancelled into from (X)Button-x or Button-D+(X)Button-x, retaining this property if cancelled into from Button-D+(Y)Button-y.

At the beginning of the match, Reimu must choose between one of two Level 3 hypers available, as Reimu will not have access to both simultaneously. Fantasy Heaven summons 7 orbs that light up each time Reimu strikes the opponent with a melee attack, and will automatically perform a fullscreen attack once all 7 orbs are lit up. Fantasy Nature is unique in that it acts as either a throw or an overhead melee attack depending on the spacing of the opponent. The throw variant is unblockable, but cannot hit airborne opponents, nor can it hit opponents in hitstun, so it cannot be comboed into. The melee variant can be comboed into and can hit airborne opponents, but can also be blocked and also deals less raw damage than the throw variant.

Victory quotes


This year's summer sure is peaceful. It's good to be bored, probably.
Well, we'll fight after we have tea.
I win, again.
Ah, geez! Where's the person who's gonna rebuild my shrine?
Geez, another fighter from the outside? Yukari's really going to get it now.


Haven't seen you in a long time...
vs. Mima
... Who are you, again?
vs. Mima
There's no place for you in this world anymore
vs. Mima
Don't you think it's peaceful lately? Feels like the calm before the storm.
vs. Yukari Yakumo
You always show up at the worst times... since you're not around at the worst times.
vs. Yukari Yakumo
All these different fighters running around. This is your doing isn't it?
vs. Yukari Yakumo
Isn't Tai chi chuan just a form of exercise?
vs. Hong Meiling
Don't you have a main entrance to a mansion you should be guarding?
vs. Hong Meiling
Well, you're China after all. Yep, you definately lost
vs. Hong Meiling
This isn't your usual self. What happened? Got bored of being a doorguard?
vs. Lie Meiling
I never sensed any real evil from you until now. Did you get possessed by a vengeful spirit?
vs. Lie Meiling
I see... so this is all Yukari's doing. She thinks she's so funny, yet I'm the one who has to clean it up
vs. Lie Meiling
Speaking of dolls, there were some nailed to the trees behind the shrine the other day. Was that your doing?
vs. Alice Margatroid
Is holding services for dolls on the side profitable? But holding services sounds more like something a temple would do.
vs. Alice Margatroid
Thought of holding services for dolls? You know, there are lots of things possessing the stuff that's been made into human form.
vs. Alice Margatroid
It's so hot, I've thought about not moving at all....
vs. Patchouli Knowledge
You wouldn't have any problem messing with the weather and the seasons, right? That's not the problem, isn't it.
vs. Patchouli Knowledge
Don't play with fire in front of me. You can't beat me with fire.
vs. Patchouli Knowledge
How stupid. There's no way you can win against me.
vs. Cirno
Brr, it's starting to get cold. I'll catch an air-conditioner cold!
vs. Cirno
Well at least having you around the shrine in summer makes the heat less brutal...
vs. Cirno
Who the hell are you?
vs. Meimu
This is Yukari's doing, isn't it?
vs. Meimu
Go bother the Scarlet Devil gateguard or something
vs. Meimu



  • Reimu's taunt animation when using her 18th palette is a direct reference to Guile's Shades of Glory taunt from Street Fighter IV.
  • The music that plays during "Fantasy Nature" is a remix of "G Free" from ZUN's album, Magical Astronomy. While it is not explicitly stated to be one of Reimu's music themes, a remix of the track is used during the final boss battle with Reimu in the Touhou fangame Concealed the Conclusion.[1]
  • Reimu uses Ibuki's voice from Super Street Fighter IV.
