Ame
Expand
Ame (a Touhou LW original) refers to rain, the weather phenomenon where water falls down from the sky, and the water droplets themselves. This temperament may seem at first glance to be in direct opposition to Marisa's nature as she likes to use light and heat magic. Marisa is endowed with Water Phase, brisk and invigorating, and with Star Essence, as she acts according to her own interests and curiosity.

The flexible and patient Water Phase resists Metal Phase, because metal collects water, but it is weak to Earth Phase, because earth directs water.

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

Info
The Spread Shot of Marisa Kirisame from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. This is the Illusion Laser of that world's Marisa. Flickering white lasers are emitted from the mini hakkero while Marisa uses her usual shock wave magic. The fact that Marisa can adjust the laser-firing mini hakkero's firepower from cooking miso soup to unleashing a Master Spark is what makes it so useful.

Info
The Focus Shot of Marisa Kirisame from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. This is the Magic Missile of that world's Marisa. Missiles imbued with magic are fired from the mini hakkero. The bullets certainly look like missiles with the fins on the body and tail, but they are probably created with magic. Apparently, someone claims that these missiles are one of the fundamental types of magic that all magicians must know...

Bullet Info
A Spell Card of Marisa Kirisame from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. She scatters a massive amount of stardust all around. This simple yet effective attack displays fantastical artistry. This is only one of Marisa's many different starry Spell Cards, but this is probably the first one she perfected. Most of her attacks have some sort of star theme.

Bullet Info
A Spell Card of Marisa Kirisame from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). A simple yet extremely wide laser is shot from Marisa's mini hakkero in this attack. This Spell Card is this Marisa's version of Master Spark that she was not able to perfect. However, it is not lacking in terms of looks or power, so she probably completed most of the Spell Card's development apart from the testing. Using high-powered lasers is Marisa's preferred method of attack.

Bullet Info
The Last Word of Marisa Kirisame from the world shrouded in scarlet mist (a Touhou LW original). She scatters stardust while flying into her targets with the speed and power of a shooting star. She was planning to spend more time on this attack's development so that it could be used as a super strong trump card, but she apparently had to rush to make it usable in battle. She took the firepower she learned from studying laser magic and combined it with the ability to control stardust she got from studying star magic, so she could fly at high speed while enveloped in a shield of stardust. This attack hints at what all her hard work will create in the future. Shooting stars are Marisa's favorite type of star.

Character Ability

Capable of using magic
Expand
The ability of Marisa Kirisame from the world shrouded in scarlet mist. It is essentially the same as our version of Marisa's ability. However, this Marisa has not yet managed to resolve the Scarlet Mist Incident. There are a few possible explanations for why this incident was not resolved, but the main one is that this Marisa is much too curious and eager for knowledge. Some examples of the things she prefers to focus on over resolving incidents are listed below. - She hypothesized that the scarlet mist was made up from some sort of special magic material and has focused on investigating and experimenting on it. - She is far too curious about how Gensokyo's environment has changed due to the world being covered in the scarlet mist. - She has taken an interest in the Scarlet Devil Mansion, particularly Patchouli's library, and it seems she has made it a priority of hers to visit. She may say these visits are to resolve the incident, but this is merely an excuse so she can take rare items. Perhaps she isn't so keen on resolving the incident because if she does resolve it, she will no longer be able to satisfy her curiosity about her interests mentioned above. However, she is serious about dealing with the incident in her own way as she knows that the humans of the village are troubled by it... or that's what she says, at least.
When using Boost, own Yang ATK 1 level UP (1 turn).
DMG to effective elements 20% UP.
When using Graze, own Agility 1 level UP (1 turn).

Character Analysis

Marisa Kirisame (Scarlet) is the version of Marisa Kirisame which showed up in the first of the Windows era Touhou games, Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. This version of Marisa Kirisame has yet to solve that incident, and could be considered still in training - just how powerful is the Remilia of her world…? Especially seeing as how Marisa packs enough firepower to boast being a S+ Tier Friend.

For farming purposes, Marisa's All targeting Last Word may just be a Protoype of Blazing Star, but it hits way harder than the OG's - having a enormous 80%/100%/100%/0%/0%/0% Slicing scaling alongside a 3-1-1 layout, which combined with her buffs means she’ll hit just about any farming content outrageously hard. She also has some potent Youkai killers, though that’s typically overkill.

In harder fights, Marisa’s Last Word is still among the most damaging in the game, thanks to the very high Slicing scaling on it, alongside the Youkai killer and the CRIT DEF DOWN which serves as incredible support for both CRIT attackers and Killers. In addition, between her first and third skill, she can give 4 levels of Agility UP for 3 turns for her entire party, alongside 2 additional levels of CRIT DEF DOWN. She also features solid, if nothing too special, Breaks - Magic Missile (Scarlet) features 1 Solo targeting Fire Break for 0 Spirit Power (alongside 2 Star Break at 1 Power if you're truly desperate for more Breaks or enjoy stalling), Magic Sign: Stardust Reverie features 1/1/3/4 All targeting Star Breaks for 0/1/2/3 Spirit Power (and a nice boost to Agility for longer fights where Spell Card damage matters), Love Sign: Proto-Spark features a total of 3 Solo targeting Fire and Star Breaks at 3 Spirit Power (and again, a nice boost to her Agility for longer fights), and should you use it for Breaks Prototype - Blazing Star features an extremely solid 3 All targeting Water and Star Breaks for 3 Spirit Power.

Overall, this witch from a land trapped in an endless scarlet mist is a powerful nuker and farmer with great support for CRIT and Killer Friends - just don’t expect her to resolve any incidents involving scarlet mist anytime soon.

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

As Marisa already almost completely caps out her own ATK and Agility between her skills and Last Word, a single Yang ATK UP Story Card is sufficient for harder fights to squeeze out more damage - though you may wish for additional copies in Arena, as buffs don’t carry over between waves. Otherwise, Spirit Power UP gives her additional Breaks and damage on her Spell Cards. Should you be facing Youkai, CRIT ATK UP is also a solid option to make the most out of her Last Word’s Killer. For fillers, look to Agility & Yang ATK.

Last Word

Due to the prevalence of Body on it, and her native ATK, Agility, and Accuracy UP, Body DMG UP is her Last Word’s best bet. Failing that, look to CRIT ATK UP if she’s fighting Youkai or Scarlet Devil Mansion residents, or Water or Star DMG UP.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Whilst all of her skills are potent, Rusted Mini Hakkero provides the highest damage between the extra bullet, Yang ATK due to her character ability, and Accuracy UP and as such should be leveled first. Afterwards, Borrowed Grimoire should be leveled up, as it provides the next highest boost, and then finally Hidden Items.

Character Strengths

+Extremely damaging and frontloaded All targeting Last Word
+Fantastic CRIT and Killer Support
+P0 Fire on a Basic Shot

Character Weaknesses

-Doesn’t quite hit the damage levels of other meta units
