Element Type Chart
Soyokaze (a Touhou LW original) refers to a light and gentle breeze. This temperament fits Daiyousei well―while she is usually hiding in Cirno's shadow, when she does appear, she does so like a breath of air. Daiyousei is endowed with Wood Phase, due to the connection to plants and wind, and Moon Essence, as she is more diligent than the usual fairy.
The strong and kind Wood Phase resists Water Phase, because water nourishes wood, but it is weak to Metal Phase, because metal carves wood.
The cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence resists the alluring and arrogant Sun Essence, but it is weak to the diverse and uncooperative Star Essence.

- Ability Unknown -
Daiyousei's actual ability is still unknown. Her bullets can be similar to Cirno's Icicle Fall and she is able to teleport (or at least do something that looks like teleportation), so a similar ability might reveal itself on another occasion. Daiyousei is the most powerful of the fairies, and fairies are composed of life energy, so it is possible that she has an ability related to nature in some way. However, nothing else is known at this point in time. Daiyousei's title is Nameless Greater Fairy (a Touhou LW original). Her name is unknown, so she is called Daiyousei―Japanese for greater fairy―since she is the most powerful of the fairies.

“Is there anything a fairy like me can do? I’ll do anything I can!”
Daiyousei isn’t a character in the truest sense. Originally a mid-stage boss in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, she has no official name or even attacks. However, due to a lack of characters in Touhou at the time, fans quickly came to dub her “Daiyousei” (literally Big/Greater Fairy), and gave her a personality. Typically in fanon (and in LostWord), she’s portrayed as a kind hearted almost cheerleader sort of character amongst the fairies. This kind hearted nature is reflected in a C Tier Friend.
For farming purposes, Daiyousei literally cannot farm, as her Last Word does no damage. The only way to farm with her is to bring her to Hard difficulty stages and manually use her first Spell Card, and even then she’ll likely be unable to do stages which resist Metal. Just. Just don’t bother, even if she’s your favorite. Please love yourself.
For harder fights, Daiyousei’s main claim to fame are the six Metal Breaks on her first Spell Card. She’s going to need some Spirit Power support to accomplish it, but she’s the bane of anyone weak to Metal as a result. Additionally, she can also provide some decent Yang ATK support between her third skill and when she boosts thanks to her Character Ability, alongside some decent Yang DEF and Agility support. Finally, she can also provide some healing.
She has two big weaknesses for a big fairy. First, her damage is extraordinarily low, as her Last Word deals no damage, and her only damaging Spell Card is mixed, making it hard to support. Secondly, in spite of being a big fairy, her health pool is rather small - which is a detriment to her healing as healing scales off of the healer’s max health.
Still, if you need either six Metal Breaks and/or Yang ATK support, maybe some healing, she’ll be of assistance. Just make sure not to expect too much - she may be big, but she’s still a fairy.
