Kawakaze
Expand
Kawakaze (a Touhou LW original) refers to wind caused by the difference in temperature between a river and its surroundings, as well as wind that takes the path of a river. Kappa are youkai of the river, so this is a fitting temperament for Nitori. Nitori is endowed with Water Phase, due to her tenacious yet flexible mindset as an engineer and saleswoman, and Moon Essence, from the sense of community she feels with her friends.

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

Info
Nitori Kawashiro's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). It refers to a type of fighting style that uses fists. Nitori uses an extendable mechanical arm to attack her target. There is a type of Chinese youkai called tsuuhai enkou which can extend one arm while shortening the other, and that characteristic lives in Japanese kappa. Nitori named her extendable mechanical arm after that Chinese youkai out of respect.

Nitori Kawashiro's Spell Card. She shoots out bubble bullets and then makes them burst. They are so loud that you can practically see the "POP!" in this very effective sound attack. But what could "bubble dragon" possibly be referring to?

Bullet Info
Nitori Kawashiro's Spell Card. This riveting barrage of bullets uses Nitori's Sanpei Fighter in midair combined with a drill attack. After combining, Sanpei functions as a heavily armed booster rocket, while the separated cockpit takes over as a light fighting plane... Or well, it would be nice if it worked that way, anyway.

Bullet Info
Nitori Kawashiro's Last Word. Nitori uses an optical cloak to hide her movement as she shoots cannons and grenades from a distance. This cannon is a replica of something from the outside. Apparently, it was not originally built to be a weapon. Maybe it was used for practice?

Character Ability

Capable of manipulating water
Expand
This might sound like a natural ability for any kappa to have, but it is not as simple as it seems. This innate ability allows Nitori to manipulate water without any tools at all. Some say that kappa are the remains of former water gods―it would be unwise to underestimate them. Nitori is not often seen making full use of her ability, but perhaps she is using it in her Spell Cards. Incidentally, the development of precision machinery is said to have developed in places where clean water flows, forging an unbreakable connection between the Iron Age and water. Water and engineering have always been inseparable.
When inflicted by Barrier Status: Paralyze or Blind, inflicts the same Barrier Status to target.

Character Analysis

Nitori Kawashiro is a stage 3 boss that first appears in Touhou 10, Mountain of Faith. She's a seemingly shy kappa who lives on the Youkai Mountain, and as such, has the ability to control water similar to the rest of her kind. The extent of this power is never put into detail, however, though she has been seen using it to shoot small fountains of water and even as far as summoning massive tidal waves. Whilst on the surface a shy kappa, Nitori's also a ruthless and greedy profiteer with a sense of superiority and a tendency to be rather rude - though that's hardly unique to her, just about everyone in Gensokyo is rude. Nitori, being a kappa, is also known to use tools of her own creation such as mechanical arms and other gadgets. In Touhou LostWord Nitori also has a few tricks up her sleeve, but suffers from them all having a low impact on the game overall resulting in her placement as a C Tier friend.

For farming Nitori is virtually useless. Nitori's Last Word, while AoE, does a laughable amount of damage and has no elemental value which leaves her in a really bad spot for anything automatic.

Nitori does actually have some uses regardless of her poor performance in farming. She brings Solo target Water and Metal element Spell Cards with only 1 break at 0 Power, and only 1 more break at P2 and P3. She can apply 2 Electrified Barriers to all foes, though the second Barrier has a 10% chance to fail, leaving them with only 1. Her ability to apply these Electrified Barriers does give her some niches such as team-wide accuracy support and goes well with Discharge attacks when setup correctly. Nitori has two Skills that lower the target's accuracy, and quite a bit at that, though this debuff is rather pointless unless you're about to take some big hit at full force.

Overall Nitori Kawashiro doesn't have a whole lot going for her and needs quite a bit of team support to really make use of her own kit.

Last Word

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Nitori only really has one good skill, that being Failed Prototype. Leveling this Skill up to 10 is important as each level adds 10% to her chances at applying a second barrier. The last two Skills aren't worth your time and are better off spent on another unit.

Character Strengths

+Access to Water and Metal element attacks
+Provides team-wide accuracy support
+Applies up to 2 Electrified Barriers with her Skill 2

Character Weaknesses

-Very low damage
-Low utility
-Low amount of Breaks
