Element Type Chart

Yoiyami
Expand
Yoiyami refers to dusk or the evening twilight, where the sun has set, yet the moon has not risen. This is the perfect temperament for Rumia―utter darkness without a single source of light. Rumia is endowed with Water Phase, the element of the depths and dark, and Moon Essence, the symbol of night.

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.

Bullet Info
Rumia's Spell Card. This attack is inspired by nocturnal birds. Most birds are famed for having poor low-light and night vision. However, nocturnal birds like owls and nightingales use their ability to be active at night to hunt and gather food more effectively. Perhaps that is also why most youkai are active at night...

Bullet Info
Rumia's Spell Card. This attack is inspired by the other side of the moon. For the dwellers of Gensokyo, the other side of the moon refers to the inside of the moon's barrier where the Lunar Capital is located. But for everyone else, it refers to the side of the moon that is not visible from the Earth. Since ancient times, it has been fabled as a mysterious and mystical place. It is now known that the moon only shows one side to the Earth because it orbits around the planet and rotates at the same rate.

Bullet Info
Rumia's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). This attack is based on the time between day and night. The word twilight means double light or second light. The twilight zone is the period of time when it is dimly lit, and things become hazy, making it difficult to discern one person from another. This time is also known as oumagatoki in Japanese, the time when you encounter demons. When it starts to get dark, you should hurry home...

Character Ability

Capable of manipulating darkness
Expand
At first glance, Rumia's ability seems to be extremely powerful. It sounds like the sort of power that the big bad evil guy would have in a work of fiction. But perhaps this ability is only powerful if its wielder makes good use of it. While Rumia is a youkai, it is doubtful whether or not she uses her ability in the most cunning manner. Rather, to put it bluntly, it seems that she doesn't make effective use of her ability to attack humans. She isn't very strategic... that is to say, she gets bored rather quickly and doesn't have the patience to formulate or carry out any elaborate schemes using her ability. In fact, by enveloping herself in darkness, she loses her ability to see and ends up crashing into trees, which happens when it gets dark... You may think of her and her ability as adorable, but don't forget that she is a youkai. If she decides to attack you on a whim with her darkness, there is no easy way to defend yourself. The only thing that most humans can do when they are deprived of their sight―is run around blindly.
For every layer of Barrier Status: Blind, Agility, Accuracy, & Evasion 1 level UP.

Character Analysis

Rumia is a youkai of the dusk, preferring to remain in eternal darkness and steers clear of sunlight and heat. She is capable of covering herself in her own darkness whenever moonlight is not an available option and can manipulate darkness around her during a fight. Although she might appear sweet and innocent, she believes that it is a youkai’s job to hunt and consume humans and will not hesitate to do so when she has the chance. Fortunately, this darkness youkai is on the player’s side, and holds out to be an A-tier Friend.

For farming, Rumia primarily depends on her Last Word, Twilight Zone, to strike as a Solo-target Yin nuke. It is pretty simple to work with, as it consists entirely of Laser bullets and decreases the target’s Yin DEF by 3 levels before striking. While it might not serve as the most damaging Solo-target Last Word on its own and the dual-element of Moon and Sun can end up being resisted, a 2-1-2 spread means that all of its damage isn’t loaded to 3 Spirit Power only.

Rumia can utilize a lot of interesting strategies for more challenging fights. Her own character ability increases her Accuracy, Agility, and Evasion by 1 level for every barrier of Blind she obtains. Using her darkness manipulation, this means that every skill that inflicts Blind onto herself will end up being a self-buff for Accuracy, ensuring more of her bullets land. Her third skill, Spit-Dark, gives herself 2 Blind barriers to herself, her second skill, Black Mist, gives her entire team 1 Blind barrier, and her second spell card, Darkness Sign: Dark Side of the Moon, will inflict one more Blind barrier to herself, totalling up to 4 Blind barriers, or likewise 4 Accuracy levels UP. As a side note, while inflicting Blind barriers to your entire team sounds purely negative, the penalties of Blind can easily be lost upon using Graze, and even then some Friends such as Kosuzu Motoori will benefit from gaining Blind barriers as well.

Not only can Rumia create darkness to support herself, but she can envelop her opponent in darkness to grant them Blind barriers as well. Her first skill, Absolute Darkness, covers all enemies with 1 Blind barrier, along with Spit-Dark granting a single target 2 additional Blind barriers. Once her foes are blinded by the darkness, Rumia can proceed to use her All-target Focus Shot to destroy the inflicted barriers. This allows for Rumia to be a very capable anomaly breaker in where her elemental breaks lack in quantity, seeing how 2 Spirit Power is required for more than 1 elemental break for either spell card.

Rumia does not offer much beyond what her skills and effects offer, but what she does have makes her stand as one of the better anomaly breakers of the game. Being able to inflict Blind barriers to every opponent and break them from Turn 1 should not be taken for granted, especially with how her anomaly break can be repeatedly used since it is not connected to a spell card. As long as you don’t accidentally blind yourself in her darkness, Rumia is definitely a useful Friend to rely on.

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

More Spirit Power is important for Rumia since she requires her Focus Shot to be boosted in order to break inflicted Blind barriers. Otherwise, Yin ATK UP or stat sticks can be used to increase the strength of her all-Yin Last Word.

Last Word

Overwhelming Firepower makes every Yin bullet of Rumia’s Last Word stronger through 3 levels UP of Yin ATK as well as a Yin ATK stat stick. Buffing her Accuracy is usually covered by her self-inflicted Blind barriers, so attack buffs should be prioritized.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Spit-Dark is important to level up first in order to inflict 2 Blind barriers both on the targeted opponent and Rumia herself. Unfortunately the amount of Blind barriers inflicted by Absolute Darkness and Black Mist do not increase upon leveling, only the Focus DOWN and Evasion levels provided by both skills respectively, meaning that more anomaly breaks will not come from leveling these skills. Do note that level 9 of both skills reduce the cooldown by 1 turn for quicker Blind barriers.

Character Strengths

+Increases Accuracy through self-inflicted Blind barriers
+Blind anomaly break on All-target Focus Shot
+Decently strong Solo-target Last Word

Character Weaknesses

-Below-average access to elemental breaks; rather costly
-Primarily self-buff focused
