Element Type Chart
Tatsumaki (a Touhou LW original) refers to a tornado, which is a violently rotating thin column of air that extends from the earth to the clouds. This temperament embodies Hina's duty of collecting misfortune on the ground and delivering it up to the gods. Hina is endowed with Fire Phase, with her unending and relentless responsibility, and Moon Essence, as she is a being estranged from the daily life of humans.
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 cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence resists the alluring and arrogant Sun Essence, but it is weak to the diverse and uncooperative Star Essence.

Capable of stockpiling misfortune
The flow of misfortune is an important cycle in the world of Gensokyo and it is Hina's ability and duty to uphold it. The concept of misfortune is mysterious and abstract. It is similar to sin or impurity, or perhaps both. The distinguishing characteristic of misfortune is that it can be transferred to someone else and then washed away to some far off distant place. It is said that there are three major ways in which someone can gain misfortune. The first way is fairly similar to sin and impurity in that it is dealt out by a godlike being. The second is when it occurs naturally. The concept of yakudoshi, which is a traditional Japanese belief that certain ages are unlucky, is an example of this as the misfortune naturally occurs from the changes in one's body and their age. The final way is when misfortune is applied by other people, also known as a curse. Most humans cannot deliberately cast a curse on someone, so misfortune generally only accumulates due to people cursing others inadvertently or with only the faintest awareness that they are doing so. Even if this is the case, the curse will still take affect and misfortune will accumulate over time, which could threaten the life or cause disaster for the one cursed. This is why many villages and communities perform rituals to cleanse misfortune. Nagashi-bina is one of these rituals. It involves placing dolls in small boats and floating them down a river, carrying the sins and impurities of their former owners with them. However, the nagashi-bina ritual only came to be this way after many years of tradition. It probably involved floating something other than dolls down the river at first. Hina could know the truth of this ritual's history and may be bearing it along with the weight of her very important responsibility.

Although she shares the title of “God” with other inhabitants of Gensokyo, Hina Kagiyama avoids collecting faith or having shrines dedicated to her, resulting in her title as a “hidden god.” This does not mean her powers do not compare to the other gods of Gensokyo, as she is capable of collecting the misfortune of humans and youkai alike. Her collection of misfortune causes fog to surround her attacks, likely a result of the stockpiled misfortune being unleashed during battle. Fortunately, Hina keeps the misfortune so it does not harm any other humans. In Touhou LostWord, the Pestilence God will work hard to keep misfortune from her party at bay as she serves her purpose as a B-tier Friend.
Hina’s farming potential is pretty good, but also not amazing. Her Last Word, Misfortune Purifying Dyson Sphere, is a Solo-targeting Yin attack that lowers the target’s Yin DEF by 2 levels while raising her Yin ATK by 3 levels. Accuracy is not an issue either, thanks to her third skill, Bad Luck Spiral, lowering every opponent’s Evasion by 3 levels for 1 turn. While both of these factors sound appealing, Hina’s damage usually will not compare to the Solo-target Last Word nukes of better characters. Being a Solo-target Last Word already puts it on a disadvantage compared to All-targeting ones as well.
For more challenging content, Hina can manipulate the misfortune stored within her to support herself and her allies. As mentioned before, Bad Luck Spiral lowers every enemy’s Evasion, which assists in having any Friend’s attacks connect more consistently. Her other skills can lower a single target’s Yin or Yang ATK by 3 or 2 levels respectively, with Skill 1, Misfortune Ward, in particular increasing the party’s Yang DEF by 2 levels. Similar to her skills, her spell cards primarily debuff singular targets, most notably the decrease of CRIT DEF by 3 levels from her second spell card, Scar: Broken Charm of Protection. While somewhat lacking in elemental breaks, her second spell card can break Poison and Paralyze barriers at 1 Spirit Power as well as Burn barriers at 2 Spirit Power. This means she can synergize well with other Friends that inflict these anomalies, such as Medicine Melancholy or Iku Nagae.
While her anomaly breaks are quite useful, Hina herself lacks the abilities to apply them by herself, only weakening her barrier breaking game further. Her first spell card, Wound Sign: Pain Flow, requires 3 Spirit Power to achieve the maximum 2 Wood and Water breaks, and her second spell card only has 2 Moon breaks at 1 Spirit Power. Her Solo-target spread shot having a Fire break at 1 Spirit Power is decent, but not spammable when compared to 0 Spirit Power elemental shots. Having most of these useful effects limited to Solo-targeting skills or attacks also hurts how effective Hina can be in fights with multiple enemies.
Still, Hina functions as a fine Solo-target Yin nuke while being able to apply small but helpful debuffs to singular or multiple opponents. Decreasing the Evasion of every foe is never a bad effect, especially when cooperating with a team of hard-hitting Friends who need that small boost in accuracy. Don’t underestimate her, and Hina will redirect your own misfortune back toward your enemies.
