Tsukiyo

Tsukiyo (a Touhou LW original) refers to nights when the moon is beautiful. This temperament encapsulates the true nature of Kaguya's being to an almost unnatural extent. Her temperament is not limited to the usual archetypes because the colossal system of the Capital is altering it.

This temperament is specialized to solely resist Earth Phase.

Character Shots

The Spread Shot of Kaguya Houraisan from the Capital (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with a righteous laser that teaches love. Kaguya shoots these lasers with her own ability, so she does not need special permission to fire them. Lasers are single‐frequency electromagnetic waves given a direction. Thus, when Kaguya uses her ability to manipulate eternity and the instantaneous to arrange the wavelengths and direction of electromagnetic waves flying nearby, she creates lasers.

The Focus Shot of Kaguya Houraisan from the Capital (a Touhou LW original). She attacks with righteous grenades that teach affection. Kaguya also creates these grenades with her ability, so she does not need special permission to use them either. Grenades are much easier to produce than lasers, so powerful grenades are more often used relative to powerful lasers. Explosions are instantaneous discharges, so Kaguya can create grenades by using her ability to condense the heat in her surroundings, fix the heat in place, and then release it whenever she likes.

A Spell Card of Kaguya Houraisan from the Capital. She attacks with a genuine jeweled branch of Hourai. The name Kaguya is famous because of Princess Kaguya and her five impossible tasks. According to The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, the one tasked with finding a jeweled branch of Hourai (a mythical land said to lie in the east across the ocean) was a noble named Kuramochi no Miko. He had an artisan craft the branch for him. Princess Kaguya in the story returns the branch after learning that it is fake and pays the artisan in Kuramochi no Miko's stead. There is also speculation that the character of Kuramochi no Miko was modeled after a member of the Fujiwara clan. Perhaps this is an item that links ''those two'' in addition to the Hourai Elixir.

A Spell Card of Kaguya Houraisan from the Capital. She attacks with mysterious substances. You may think it is far-fetched for a mysterious and undefined substance to exist. However, it is now common knowledge that substances are made up of minute particles, and the limits of technology are the only thing at odds with this understanding. In other words, mysterium, an unknown constitute of matter, always exists in your surroundings. Or rather, mysterium is existence itself.

The Last Word of Kaguya Houraisan from the Capital (a Touhou LW orginal). This attack is made possible by the Hourai Elixir. The Hourai Elixir is a secret medicine of true immortality created by the combination of Kaguya's and Eirin's abilities. But it is also a poison that inflicts whoever drinks it with impurity for eternity. It is said that the existence of someone who becomes a person of Hourai is no longer dependent on a physical body and that they can create a body wherever their soul is. Even in the Capital, the people of Hourai are impure beings, and drinking the Hourai Elixer is a heinous crime. So why does this Kaguya have this Last Word...?

Character Ability

Capable of manipulating eternity and the instantaneous (Concealed)
Expand
The secret ability of Kaguya Houraisan (a Touhou LW original). Her ability doesn't appear to be any different from the usual Kaguya, but it may have been redeveloped with different underlying principles. It seems the purpose for this varies depending on which world she is assigned to. However, the primary cause is unknown and requires further investigation. The Kaguya of this world has retained her ability to manipulate eternity and the instantaneous. Eternity is the time when history is a blank slate where absolutely no changes are recorded. The instantaneous refers to the smallest intervals of time―infinite gaps that contain every historical possibility. Kaguya's ability is extremely powerful as it does not simply allow her to manipulate time but also interfere with history in various ways. However, there are still many mysteries regarding the effects of this ability. At the very least, there probably aren't that many ways someone could stop Kaguya if she ever decided to use this highly versatile ability for personal gain. However, it seems she never uses her ability in such a manner. Kaguya's outfit is almost identical to what the moon rabbits of the Capital wear, but her equipment is mostly just for show. Kaguya's bullets and power are inherent to her. She deliberately wears the same outfit as the moon rabbits and pretends to shoot bullets from her gun to "teach" them. She guides the people of the Capital with her profound love. (That is her intention, at least.) Those who live in the Capital are called "sisters." The four sisters who make up the Four Temples act as if they possess the highest authority. Even within the Four Temples, Kaguya is special. There is a clear distinction between her and the other three. However, in the information regarding the Capital, there are records of the names Eirin, Chang'e, and Tsukuyomi. They are spoken of as if they are superior to the Four Temples. Presumably, Kaguya has some sort of connection to these three beings, though the details of this connection are not presently known. The purpose of the Love Temple is to lead and direct the sisters in the Capital with profound love. However, the language in the Capital has been arbitrarily manipulated at the lexical and grammatical levels. After a long and thorough investigation, it has been found that the "teachings of love" are most likely "harsh interrogations and punishments." This implies that other words used in the Capital may mean the opposite or even something completely different. What thoughts and beliefs led Kaguya and the others of this world to form such a distorted society?

Character Analysis

B3 Kaguya Houraisan was released on June 3rd, 2022 in Ultra Festival: Love With a Hidden Agenda.

B3 Kaguya Houraisan, Code: Nayotake, and the Love Temple of Benevolence and Conscience, is one of the Four Temples and leader of the group trying to fight back the Kaiju and save the Lunar Capital. Her sense of humor and brightly shining positive attitude permeates the group, raising morale and inspiring hope against the seemingly endless waves of Kaiju. But she’s not just some cheerleader; her ability, “to manipulate eternity and the instantaneous”, is extremely powerful when used with the right amount of knowledge in a given situation, which Kaguya also tends to usually have, being a long-living immortal who has drank the Hourai Elixir. And like her fellow Temples, she is undoubtedly an SS-Tier Friend.

For farming and raw damage, Kaguya is able to prove herself as an Ultra Festival Friend since she is able to solo farm a good amount of stages. Her Yang-only Last Word, Hourai Medicine Tank, is powerful in its own right as it has an abundance of Killers (most notably Youkai and Fairy) that will guarantee critical hits to a wide range of enemies. Since attack buffs and defense debuffs are effectively multiplicative, the combination of 4 Yang ATK UP (1T) from her Pre-ATK effect plus 2 Yang ATK UP (3T) and solo target 2 Yang DEF DOWN debuff (2T) from her Last Word at 1.00P boost further enhances her damage potential. It does not end there though, as a combination of her skills and ability creates more avenues for damage potential growth through agility scaling.
Solo Story Card Farms: 3-3-3, 3-11-1, Hifuu Code E9

For difficult content, she is able to sustain and prolong the survivability of the party while providing decent Agility support. Her defensive niche is all about evasion tanking for her party. As the manipulator of eternity and the instantaneous, she provides the party with at least 8 levels of effective Evasion on the 1st turn, which can then be extended for a long time using her skills and spell cards. This allows her to work in conjunction with Focus-based Friends for prolonged party survivability. However, note that this niche’s effectiveness is usually seen for contents like Elemental EX and Tower.

Kaguya will not miss out in the barrier breaking field as she provides good elemental access and an acceptable amount of anomaly breaks. Starting off with elemental breaks, her Spread Shot, Love and Laser, allows you to access the Moon element at 0P, with a total of 3 when it reaches max boost. She also has 3 Fire elements in this shot which are all accessible in just one boost. Her 2nd Spell Card, New Impossible Request: Mysterium, also provides Moon at 0P but it is more accessible as you only need 2.00P to use all 3 of it. Additionally, she has a total of 3 Star elements which are accessible starting from 1.00P. Lastly, her Last Word, Hourai Medicine Tank, primarily gives access to 3 Star elements and then 3 Moon elements as you boost further. There is also her Focus Shot, Charity Grenades and Spell Card 1, Divine Treasure: Jeweled Branch of Hourai -Dreamlike Paradise-, that gives access to the Moon element at 0P and provides a multitude of elements as you boost further. However, do note that a multitude of elements in an attack is hard to utilize especially when the enemies have only a few elements that they are weak towards. Her anomaly breaks consist of Melting (breaks Freeze barriers) and Toxic (breaks Poison barriers) which is prevalent when you use her Last Word at 2.00P.

When it comes to her passive, she has two that have a 100% chance of success rate. Her first passive, Anti-Kaiju Defense, provides 35% DMG DOWN from Youkai enemies allowing her to survive longer. Her 3rd passive, End of Imperishable Night, gives 0.25P per turn allowing her to have an easier time to access most of her elemental breaks.

Overall, Kaguya is a one of a kind Ultra Festival Friend to have if you are in need of what she offers. While she may not have common party utility such as attack buffs, she makes up for it by allowing your Friends to survive better through the use of evasion-related effects while also doing her best to deal high damage from her Last Word.

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

As her P gain collection rate is exceptional, giving her Hakurei Shrine Anniversary becomes the best option in contrast to direct P UP cards. However, this should not discourage you to use Witch of Scarlet Dreams if you do not have the aforementioned card. Alternatively, you can take the setup approach and use Myouren Temple Anniversary in order to enhance the damage potential of her Last Word. Finally, you can opt to use Yang ATK stat sticks to augment her turn 1 damage potential, preferring ones with Agility.

Last Word

Kaguya's best in slot card is Secret Sealing Club Girls as it provides a 50% boost to her Star elements which is a huge boon for her. Alternatively, you may use Frozen-Over Gensokyo or Where the Wind Priestess Is as her Last Word is primarily Liquid bullets.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Kaguya’s 2nd skill, Virtue of Loyalty, should be your priority in leveling up as it allows her to have consistent damage using her Last Word by giving herself 1.25P UP, 2 Yang ATK UP (3T), and 3 Accuracy UP (2T). After which, you should level her 3rd skill, Virtue of Love, as this will allow Kaguya to finally showcase her evasion based tanking niche by making all enemies a hard time to hit your team due to the all enemies 3 ACC DOWN (1T) and party 3 EVA UP (1T) effects it gives, which is effectively 6 EVA UP for the whole party. Additionally, the 3 AGI UP (3T) buff she receives helps her potential damage be higher. Finally, her 1st skill, Virtue of Curiosity, should be leveled up last since you will most use it for its 2 AGI UP (3T) and 3 EVA UP (2T), which can just serve as an extender for the aforementioned buffs, not to mention that the skill cooldown is at 3 turns when maxed so it definitely fits that role.

Character Strengths

+ Extremely high P collection rate. Her self inflicted Paralyze and Blind barriers contribute to this.
+ Very high damage potential on Last Word.
+ Solid elemental breaks mainly from Spread Shot and Spell Card 2.
+ Defensive niche is very good when used in a proper situation.

Character Weaknesses

- Supporting her to reach full potential is hard as she does not have a single CRIT ATK buff in her kit and only a few YANG ATK buffs to work on.
- Outside of Evasion and Agility utility, she does not have any other party utility to speak of.
- Multiple elemental breaks on Focus Shot and Spell Card 1 is hard to utilize against enemies with low weakness counts.
