Seeking to hone her swordplay skills, Youmu retains her rushdown-oriented gameplay from the Touhou Project fighting games, but has also taken another swordsman's mechanic on board; this mechanic allows Youmu to augment attacks by both getting up close and personal to opponents and landing successful hits on them, but missing too many attacks or repeatedly exposing herself to damage will eventually render the augmentations lost.

RPYoumuidle

Youmu is technically a three-button character that uses the Button-xyz buttons for the majority of her attacks, while relegating the Button-abc buttons to shortcut motions; (A)Button-a used in combination with Button-F or Button-B acts as a shortcut for the character's Button-B Button-B and Button-F Button-F dash commands, (B)Button-b is used as a shortcut for (Y)Button-y+(Z)Button-z, while (C)Button-c is used as a shortcut for Button-xyz3, used in the Level 3 Hypers. At the beginning of the match, Youmu must select from one of two mutually-exclusive Level 3 Hypers; "6-root Cleansing" is a powerful counterattack that can inflict sizeable damage on a particularly careless opponent, while "Secret of Life and Death" turns the ghostly spirit that perpetually follows Youmu's movements into a clone that repeats her inputs for a limited time.

Youmu is a high-risk, high-reward melee-oriented offense character who, at first glance, may seem to excel at rushdown due to her quick speed and combo potential. While Youmu can indeed be played this way, her maximum potential comes from taking advantage of Youmu's unique Spirit Gauge mechanic. Youmu's Spirit Gauge will gradually fill as Youmu hits an opponent with an attack, successfully counters an opponent's attack with Insightful Sword or Netherworld Reflection Slash, or simply stands or walking close to an opponent. As the Gauge fills, Youmu's Spirit level will increase to level 2 at 350 Spirit, and level 3 at 700 Spirit, up to a maximum of 1000 Spirit. Some of Youmu's Normals and Specials will be altered as her Spirit Level increases, such as faster startup, more damage, increased hitbox size, or other properties. For instance, Youmu's aerial Button-D+(Z)Button-z will gain both an increased hitbox size and the ability to inflict Hardgroundbounce on Counter Hit starting at Level 2 Spirit, with guaranteed Hardgroundbounce at Level 3 Spirit. However, Youmu must be played carefully, as getting hit or whiffing an attack will cause Youmu's Spirit Gauge to decrease.

Perhaps Youmu's biggest weakness is her low Life stat at only 850 Life. As the Spirit Gauge decreases, Youmu will begin to lose the benefits accorded with it. At higher Spirit levels, Youmu cannot afford to recklessly throw out pokes with her Normals like other characters can unless she has extra Spirit Gauge to spare. Getting hit at higher Spirit Levels will cause Youmu to lose a greater amount of Spirit, losing 110% of damage incurred at Level 3. Furthermore, many of Youmu's better combos can only be performed at Level 2 Spirit or higher, due to some of her Normals having much longer startup times at lower Spirit levels, thus preventing some of her moves from properly connecting in a combo or blockstring. Because of this, maintaining offensive pressure against Youmu will keep her Spirit Gauge low and restrict her options.

Victory quotes

General

"If there is something I can't make clear, I try cutting it!"
"If a sword's been used to cut so much that it became tainted with clotted blood, it becomes useless."
"You never had a chance. You're an insult to my Roukanken."
"The things that can't be cut by this youkai-tempered Roukanken are next to none!"
"Now then, today's training is done."
"Past, present, and future... Events that have happened long ago, and those that have yet to happen. Surely, Lady Yukari might know something about the boundaries of time."

Character-specific

"Maybe you say 'I shall make you the rust of my sword' because of the iron in blood?"
vs. Reimu Hakurei
"If you're going to move that slowly, you'll never get out of the reach of my sword."
vs. Reimu Hakurei
"Don't use all your strength. It's easy for me to cut you down if you use strength."
vs. Marisa Kirisame
"Your mind is too clouded. You know you won't die a good death like this, do you?"
vs. Marisa Kirisame
"So there are shrines in the outside world too, huh? I thought that they were already a lost culture."
vs. Sanae Kochiya
"By relying on the power of your gods, that must mean you'll never reach first place on your own."
vs. Sanae Kochiya
"Don't you use things like the Green Dragon Blade? I hear things like that often..."
vs. Hong Meiling
"I sense hesitation in you. You're... holding something back?"
vs. Hong Meiling
"Those rumors about Lady Yukari. They're true, aren't they? Or rather, they WILL become true? I'm not sure I understand."
vs. Lie Meiling
"That dark power... Just what ARE you?"
vs. Lie Meiling
"Lady Yuyuko, why don't you train sword techniques with me sometimes? It'll settle your spirits, you know?"
vs. Yuyuko Saigyouji
"What do you think of this incident, Lady Yuyuko? Things that happened long ago, yet never happened?"
vs. Yuyuko Saigyouji
"Ah, Lady Yukari. Strange things are happening all over the place..."
vs. Yukari Yakumo
"Ah, Lady Yukari. I've heard rumors saying you were involved in this incident..."
vs. Yukari Yakumo
"I feel sorry for you. The both of you."
vs. Seiga Kaku
"I don't know what the two of you are scheming, but... "

Trivia

  • Youmu's Spirit Gauge mechanic bears a strong resemblance to Vergil's Concentration mechanic from Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, something that is further reinforced by the fact that Youmu's 19th palette is based on Vergil himself.
  • Youmu's sprite files contain unused spellcard text; it is possible that these were originally planned as Hypers at one point, but were ultimately scrapped.
    • "Matsuyuri-Reflecting Satellite Slash" was the name of Youmu's Last Word spellcard from Imperishable Night, which was most likely intended to originally be one of Youmu's two selectable Level 3 Hypers.
    • Devil Trigger "Doppelganger", Boundary Cutting Sword "Dimension Slash", and "Dark Angel" all reference attacks used by Vergil, indicating that an alternate mode based on Vergil may have been originally planned.
  • Youmu's 2nd victory quote against Sanae is a reference to the outcome of the Touhou RP: Gensokyo Reloaded Fall 2016 Tournament, in where a Sanae player managed to reach the Grand Finals against all expectations.
  • The second person Youmu is referring to in both of her victory quotes against Seiga is Yoshika Miyako.
