Element Type Chart

Kaiun
Expand
Kaiun (a Touhou LW original) refers to an unfamiliar or suspicious-looking cloud. This temperament is a perfect representation of Ibaraki-Douji's Arm. She is endowed with Reverse Metal Phase, the element of unveiled secrets, and Reverse Sun Essence, since she vehemently opposes all social norms.

The cold and silent Metal Phase resists Earth Phase, because earth bears metal, but it is weak to Fire Phase, because fire refines metal. Thus, Reverse Metal Phase is weak against Earth Phase and resists Fire Phase.

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

Character Shots

Ibaraki-Douji's Arm's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She wields shadow-flame in this attack. Shadow-flame, or ''inka,'' is a type of onibi, a mysterious light that appears near graveyards at night. It may look like oni leave themselves wide open when they attack, but if they hit, their opponents will surely meet a tragic end.

Ibaraki-Douji's Arm's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). She hurls a stone pillar at her opponent. Her incredible strength is displayed as she crushes stone with her bare hands. However, this is a simple task for someone who possesses the superhuman might of an oni. That's why the oni exterminators of old preferred to use tricks and exploit the oni's weaknesses rather than face them head-on.

Ibaraki-Douji's Arm's Spell Card (a Touhou LW original). She rains down the skulls of her servants upon her opponents. According to Ibaraki-Douji's Arm, the corpses that lie in Avici, the Hell of unending suffering, are her servants, and they came from all the people she devoured. It isn't known whether she just said this to intimidate her opponent or whether it is actually true. Regardless, this tale is reminiscent of the kishin who torment souls in Hell.

Ibaraki-Douji's Arm's Spell Card (a Touhou LW original). She buries her opponent under several stone pillars. You could probably tell, but she doesn't even take one step, let alone three. The most notable oni in Gensokyo are Suika Ibuki and Yuugi Hoshiguma. According to Suika, Yuugi is more physically strong, whereas Suika is more skilled with youjutsu (or, more specifically, kijutsu, since she is an oni). Ibaraki-Douji's Arm seems to be rather skilled at both, so perhaps she prefers to use a balanced fighting style that combines both physical strength and youjutsu.

Ibaraki-Douji's Arm's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). She reveals her nature as the lost arm of an oni. There are tales of how the warrior, Watanabe no Tsuna, once cut off an oni's arm, and if she is truly that same arm, then she must possess an insatiable thirst for vengeance. However, while her power is utterly malevolent, there seems to be something missing. It's as if she contains all the wickedness possessed by the oni known as Ibaraki-Douji condensed into a smaller form. What could this possibly mean? And if she's just the arm, where is the rest of Ibaraki-Douji...?

Not much is known about the ability of Ibaraki-Douji's Arm.

Please refer to a different document if you wish to know how Ibaraki-Douji's Arm acted in the past and who she came into contact with. Only an extremely limited few know the truth: Reimu Hakurei, the Hakurei Shrine Maiden; Kasen Ibaraki, the hermit also known as Ibarakasen; Tenshi Hinanawi, the celestial; and a few officials of Hell. Her nature is obviously that of an oni, but as her name implies, she is not a complete oni. Regardless, she is still an oni, and thus she is a being to be feared who is seldom spoken of. Oni are much more dangerous than your average youkai, and they are ever mysterious. So much so that some people think they should be classified as their own type of creature rather than being lumped together with youkai.

The name Ibaraki-Douji appears in many historical documents, and the name attached to this ''arm'' probably refers to the same being. More information might be gleaned by referring to those historical documents directly. If there is any instance of an oni named Ibaraki-Douji having their arm cut off, that should be enough to confirm the connection.

The being who calls herself Ibaraki-Douji's Arm looks almost identical to Kasen Ibaraki. This is an undeniable fact. However, it still isn't exactly clear what their connection is... They could be identical twins considering how similar they look. One is a hermit who gathers faith in the Human Village, and the other is a malevolent oni. What is their true relationship?
Immune to Barrier Status: Burn.
When using Boost, party's CRIT Accuracy 1 level UP (1 turn).

Character Analysis

Ibaraki Douji’s Arm was released on February 24, 2023 in Prayer “Severed Arm of Shadow Festival”.

Locked within a sealed box lay an ancient arm, separated from its owner who wished to lock that malevolent part of herself away from all time. There was a time whence our resident shrine maiden would unseal it unwittingly, unleashing this great evil unto hell as she made herself whole once again with the body of Kasen Ibaraki, returning her to her former self as one of the Four Great Oni who once terrorized Gensokyo.

Today, Ibaraki Douji’s Arm manifests as a presence following our protagonist on her quest, to be unleashed only as a last resort. She is a Destroy-class Friend who can rally her party’s Crit while wreaking havoc on the battlefield.

As an Offensive Support

  • Buffs team Crit ATK and Crit ACC
  • Debuffs enemy Evasion

As an Attacker

  • Buffs Yin ATK and Accuracy
  • Bullet lines all contain Earth bullets, with a scattering of other elements (Fire, Star, Moon, Water and Metal)
  • Decent spread of Killers, including Youkai Killer
  • Self supply of Spirit P

As a Utility

  • Inflicts and breaks Burn barriers on enemies via Spell Card 1
  • Can also break Burn via Spread Shot and Last Word

Story Card Recommendations

(Card recommendations last updated on February 23, 2023)

Spell Card

While Ibaraki’s Arm can stock herself with Spirit P, it never hurts to have more, especially when trying to max out your party’s Crit ACC and hit those Burn breaks, making the The Witch of Scarlet Dreams a standard recommendation. The Secret God of the Sky does well raising damage on her first two Spell Cards which are 100% Heavy Bullets. For Yin support, go with cards like Rainbow Dragon Cave to give her levels a boost. This recommendation in particular also boosts Star damage; useful on Spell Card 2!

Last Word

With a fully Energy packed Last Word, Unknown Barrier Team complements her perfectly, boosting her with much needed Yin ATK and general damage output by 50%. Worlds in Hand provides a more modest boost at 30%, but helps with a party-wide Crit ATK boost.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Skill 2, Violent and Cruel Oni allows her to get a running start with 3P, helping her party reach maximum Crit ACC sooner. Skill 3, Heretical Oni will then make her self sufficient with Accuracy buffs and some Yin ATK for herself, and more Crit ACC for her team. Finally, pile on the team Crit ACC with an extra serving of Crit ATK with Skill 1, Inhumane Oni.

Character Strengths

Critically Acclaimed Friend

Ibaraki’s Arm has a knack for singling out enemy weaknesses, with the ability to boost both Crit ACC and Crit ATK for her entire party to dizzying heights. Her own lines feature the powerful Youkai Killer alongside a few others to help her hit broad swathes on Gensokyo’s populace, as well as Explosive bullets that give her a chance of landing crits on enemies with heavy Yin or Yang DEF (bullet line dependant). Keep her stocked with Spirit P and soon you’ll be partying on the smoldering ashes of your enemies’ remains.

Burn Baby Burn

Friends with the ability to both drop and break Anomalies in a single breath are always cherished. Ibaraki’s Arm does this on her Spellcard 1 which also hits ALL enemies, leaving them with much fewer barriers than before.

Character Weaknesses

Needs Yin support

Ibaraki’s Arm is very heavily weighted towards landing Crits, with very minor Yin buffs on her end. You will want to fill this gap with allied supports, or Story Cards to keep her Yin ATK levels healthy.

Odd Element balancing

It can be hard to pinpoint any particular element for her to break, aside from Earth. Even then, she has some awkward choices in her kit, with her Last Word featuring 4 Metal and 2 Earth. She rocks 3 Water/2 Earth/1 Moon on her Spell Card 1, and 4 Earth/2 Star on Spell Card 2. Plan accordingly.
