Touhou Project

Yukari Yakumo is a youkai from Touhou Project who has the ability to manipulate boundaries. She is the first and only Phantasm stage boss in Touhou Project, first appearing in Perfect Cherry Blossom alongside her shikigami Ran Yakumo. She made her debut as a playable character in Immaterial and Missing Power, and would go on to make later playable appearances in Imperishable Night, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Antinomy of Common Flowers.

Yukari is known as the "gap youkai", although "gap youkai" is not the name of a species, as she is more of a one-of-a-kind type of youkai. Her power to manipulate boundaries allows her to control physical boundaries as well as metaphorical boundaries, as well as opening gaps in space to instantly travel anywhere of her choosing. Most residents of Gensokyo try to avoid her as much as possible due to her whimsically antagonizing personality, though she has managed to befriend a few residents, including Yuyuko Saigyouji, Suika Ibuki, and Reimu Hakurei, the latter of which is closely associated with the Hakurei Barrier around Gensokyo of which Yukari had a hand in its creation.

In M.U.G.E.N, Yukari Yakumo has been made by various authors.

MLiconRicePigeon's second versionProfanityicon


Phantasm and Shadow, Light and Darkness, Wave and Particle, High and Low; wherever there's a boundary, Yukari will manipulate it. Yukari is known throughout the world of Gensokyo as a youkai who toys with her opponents, and the move options available to this character are sure to keep her foes guessing.


RicePigeon's third version


Initially created as a prototype for Touhou: Incident Zero, RicePigeon's third take on the youkai of boundaries forgoes her old mix-up arsenal in favor of a more zoning-oriented approach inspired by her latest appearance in Antinomy of Common Flowers, but sacrifices the use of her Teke Teke urban legend in favor of a Groove system that allows Yukari to choose between offense, defense, or speed.
