Taiyouchuu
Expand
Taiyouchuu (a Touhou LW original) refers to the light pillar that sometimes appears above the sun at sunrise and sunset. Mokou fights with her body enveloped in flames, so this temperament is a perfect match for her. Mokou is endowed with Fire Phase, from the intense emotions swirling within her, and Sun Essence, from the strong will she uses to control those emotions.

The formless and passionate Fire Phase resists Wood Phase, because wood feeds fire, but it is weak to Water Phase, because water dampens fire.

The alluring and arrogant Sun Essence resists the diverse and uncooperative Star Essence, but it is weak to the cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence.

Character Shots

Fujiwara no Mokou's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She shoots phoenix feathers at her target in this attack. The mind of fire referred to here is a state of concentration in which you burn away all your earthly desires, but in Mokou's case, it probably just means that she burns everything around her.

Fujiwara no Mokou's Focus Shot. She throws hidden bamboo tube bombs (are they dynamite or Molotov cocktails or...?) and makes them explode. Since she lives in a bamboo forest, these bamboo tube bombs are probably handmade.

Fujiwara no Mokou's Spell Card. She envelops her body in flames and charges at her target. Normally, this would be self-destructive, but she is an immortal person of Hourai, so she can use this as an attack. However, she often ends up crashing into corners either because she cannot see in front of her or she is going too fast... It probably hurts a lot.

Character Ability

Capable of eternal youth and immortality
Expand
Just as the ability says, Fujiwara no Mokou is eternally young and immortal. This is the power of the people of Hourai. If you take the Hourai Elixir, your soul becomes immortal, so even if your body is completely destroyed, your soul becomes your core and completely regenerates your body. In other words, the life of a person of Hourai does not depend on their body at all. You could even say that their life transcends that of an ordinary human. That is the wish of all humans everywhere, but for Mokou, the moment she obtained this ability and the hardships of her life to come only made her feel fear and loneliness, and she had a long period where she was overcome with despair. That she can live positively as a regular girl now even with that kind of past is probably due to Gensokyo's accepting nature and the relationships she keeps.
For every layer of Barrier Status: Burn, Yang ATK, Yin ATK, CRIT ATK, & CRIT Accuracy 1 level UP. Immune to Barrier Status: Freeze.

Character Analysis

Fujiwara no Mokou was released on June 18th, 2021 in Lunatic Rabbit & Blazing Immortal. 

Once an ordinary human girl, Fujiwara no Mokou became immortal after stealing a dose of the Hourai Elixir from her rival, Kaguya Houraisan. Since then, she’s settled into serving as a guide in the Bamboo Forest of the Lost, helping people to reach Eientei from the Human Village and vice versa, inbetween fights to the death with Kaguya. Otherwise, she’s a loner who keeps to herself mostly, with only Keine Kamishirasawa really contacting the girl on a regular basis. In combat, Mokou fights with a reckless disregard for her own immortal, eternally resurrecting life, using flames she’s not even immune to as a A-Tier Friend

For farming purposes, Mokou’s damage is somewhat sub par for a Solo Lost Word on one turn. Due to one boss stages having higher health totals, she will struggle to defeat them on Lunatic by herself unless they’re weak to her Last Word. Either bring her some support or have her simply farm on Hard.

For harder fights, Mokou has a lot to bring to the table. Between having access to an abundance of Yang ATK Up and Burn Barriers on her Spell Cards, an backloaded Last Word that deals great damage at 3 Power, the ability to break said Burn Barriers with her Focus Shot at 3 Power, and even some Yang DEF Down on a single target from a skill, Mokou can certainly do a lot. However, she’s also extremely frail, as her Spell Cards cost HP to use - this damage cannot kill her, but it can drop her to 1 HP. Whilst her third skill’s healing somewhat counter-acts this, she will need healing and/or barrier support to avoid dying to a stiff breeze. Additionally, she’s extremely power hungry, wanting 2 Power on her second Spell Card, 3 Power on her Focus Shot, and 3 Power on her Last Word to fully shine. 

Overall, Mokou’s a fairly powerful unit with a lot going for her, but some pretty notable downsides as well. Make sure you keep her alive and supplied with Power, and she’ll show your foes the devastating power a phoenix like her can do - to herself and them.

Here are the chances for Mokou’s secondary effects and HP consumption, alongside her Hard scaling (per bullet):

Mind of Fire:
Recovers HP: 0%/0%/20%/0%/20%/0%

Chance for Burn: 0%/0%/0%/20%/0%/0%

Blazing Bamboo Tubes: 
Chance for Burn: 20%/0%/0%/0%/0%/30%

Regretful Life: Immortality's Reckless Sacrifice: 
Consumes HP: 50%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%
Hard: 0%/50%/0%/50%/0%/30%
Chance for Burn: 50%/0%/50%/0%/0%/50%

Hourai: South Wind, Clear Sky -Fujiyama Volcano-: 
Consumes HP: 50%/0%/0%/0%/0%/0%
Hard: 30%/30%/30%/30%/30%/30%
Chance for Burn: 30%/0%/30%/30%/0%/30%

Phoenix Rebirth: 
Chance for Burn: 50%/0%/50%/0%/0%/50%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

As Mokou is incredibly Power hungry, The Witch of the Scarlet Dreams is far and away her best option, providing her with both Power and Yang ATK. Other Spirit P recovery Story Cards are also acceptable. Whilst healing Story Cards may seem like a useful tool as well, the healing happens before the Spell Card’s HP cost does, and is generally not high enough on any Story Card to keep Mokou going.

Last Word

As Mokou already has a rather extremely high amount of Yang ATK Up in her kit, and no innate Accuracy up, a Story Card which provides 2 or more Levels of Accuracy Up is her default option. If you can provide her with Accuracy support, any Story Card that can provide her with Energy DMG Up, such as Where the Wind Priestess Is, will be her best option - failing that, anything that provides Fire DMG Up, such as Mini-Hakkero, will also work.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Immortal Intimidation should be prioritized first, as it provides a tremendous amount of value in both ATK Up and DEF Down - level 9 will suffice, as the 10th level only lowers cooldown. Afterwards, Remote Ignition should be maxed out, as the Burn Barriers it inflicts are rather handy. Lastly, Fate of the People of Hourai can wait as a luxury skill after you’re out of other skills to train, as it already does an okay enough job at level 1 and scales poorly with additional levels.

Character Strengths

+ Solo Last Word has incredible damage potential, even without team support
+ Good access to Burn barriers, which she can Break with her All targeting Spread Shot
+ 2 Yang Def Down on 1 Foe is decent offensive support

Character Weaknesses

- Unusually frail, as both of her Spell Cards consume a lot of HP - will likely require healing support
- Deals fairly low damage for a Solo attacker without setup time
- Spread Shot requires 3 Power to Break Burn Barriers
- Utilizing all of her kit at once will require unusually large amounts of Power.
