Element Type Chart

Sou
Expand
Sou refers to drizzle and scattered rain. This is an apt temperament for Suika, who is capable of manipulating density. Suika is endowed with Metal Phase, the element of the oni, and Moon Essence, with her fondness for change.

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

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

Character Shots

Suika Ibuki's Spread Shot. She summons a will-o'-wisp up from the ground at her target's feet and then makes it explode. Will-o'-wisps are orbs of blue-tinted fire that appear in graveyards and swamps. They are also called hitodama (human souls), kitsunebi (fox fire), or onibi (oni fire) in Japan. It is said that will-o'-wisps are caused by the combustion of phosphorus gas produced by decaying organic material, but others say that they are caused by some sort of plasma effect. The truth has yet to be determined.

Suika Ibuki's Spell Card. She regains her lost oni strength and attacks with reckless abandon. For some reason, Suika has lost the strength that she once had at the height of her power, but this Spell Card seems to indicate that she can regain a portion of this strength when certain conditions are met. Oni are rarely seen in Gensokyo and not much is known about what happened to the other oni or their current whereabouts...

Suika Ibuki's Spell Card. A profusion of bullets are successively shot out in this attack. The Night Parade is a procession of mysterious youkai that feature in many Japanese folktales. It is said that your life is forfeit if you ever meet the Night Parade, but some stories infer that this can be avoided by pretending to be drunk.

Suika Ibuki's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). This attack recreates the Doujigiri katana by compressing memories. A katana with the same name exists in the outside world and is a national treasure of Japan. It is thought that Suika's past is deeply connected to this katana, but the details are unclear. It's possible that this may have something to do with Suika's lost strength, her dislike of lies, and the weakness for sake that all oni have.

Character Ability

Capable of manipulating density
Expand
Suika's ability allows her to alter the density of various things. She can use it to change her own body into a mist. Also, changing the density of objects lets her indirectly manipulate heat, which she uses in battle. The reason she is able to become a giant and create tiny clones of herself is presumed to also be due to this ability. Suika can apparently even create something like a black hole when she takes this ability to its extremes. This is an incredibly versatile ability that could be applied in all sorts of situations, but perhaps due to Suika's straightforward personality, she only uses it in a fairly limited manner.
When using Graze, party's Yin ATK 1 level UP (1 turn).
DMG from effective & resisted elements 20% DOWN.

Character Analysis

Suika Ibuki was released on June 25th, 2021 in Festival: Dreams, Illusion, and Sake. 

Suika Ibuki is a fairly atypical oni. She’s smaller than most of her kind, with more of a penchant for trickery and plotting. Still though, she lives for what most oni do - drink and party, to the point where she claims she hasn’t been sober in hundreds of years. And like most oni, even if she’s a bit of a trickster and underhanded, she’s still devastatingly powerful. Between her ability to grow to gigantic or shrink to tiny sizes, or just plain out knocking someone out with her overwhelming power, Suika Ibuki is a S+ Tier Friend.

For farming, Suika’s All Last Word deals remarkably good damage on turn 1. It’s all Metal Element however at 1 Power, and Suika’s damage isn’t quite good enough to compensate for this. To a limited extent, the Anti-Human and Anti-Youkai damage on the second Bullet can help, but for the moment you may find Suika runs into some trouble against Metal-resistant foes, especially if she is not fully Awakened with a maxed out Skill 3.

For hard fights, Suika is a unit who does it all well. She brings the prior mentioned incredibly damaging All Last Word, but on top of that she also brings a wide suite of team support. Between her passive providing team wide Yin ATK Up on graze, her All Last Word providing Yin & Yang DEF Down, and her second Spell Card providing team wide Accuracy up, Suika’s team support would be remarkably good even if she didn’t do much damage. Perhaps the only real flaw she has in hard fights is her Barrier Breaking access is merely above average, between a 1 Fire Break at 0 Power basic shot and 1/2/3 Fire Breaks for 0/1/2 Power on her second Spell Card. 

Overall, Suika’s a remarkably strong unit who brings both a ton of damage and a lot of team support to the tale. She might look small, but she’s still an oni!

Here are the chances for Suika’s secondary effects, alongside her Hard scaling (per bullet):

Kishin's Will-o'-Wisp Art: 
Hard: 25%/0%/0%/0%/30%/35%

Forgathering Spiritual Flowers: 
Chance for Evasion DOWN: 20%/0%/0%/0%/0%/30%

Oni Sign: Missing Power: 
Hard: 0%/15%/0%/0%/25%/25%

Night Parade of a Million Demons: 
Absorb: 0%/10%/0%/15%/0%/20%

Renewed Bloodsucker Doujigiri:
Hard: 60%/40%/50%/50%/50%/70%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Since Suika’s second Spell Card already provides her and her team with Accuracy Up, and is the only Spell Card you care about the Accuracy of, she’s free to go for Spirit Power recovery or Yin ATK Up. For stat sticks: for shorter fights, look to stat sticks with Yin ATK + Yin DEF (preferring DEF if you can't get both). For longer fights, look to Story Cards with both Yin ATK and Yang ATK - whilst her Last Word does have some Hard bullets, she’d still much rather have raw ATK due to her LW's back end being heavily mixed.

Last Word

Mysterious Sword Master is far and away Suika's best option. You can go with Accuracy up instead for farming, or Yin ATK UP for harder fights if you don't have it, but be warned her damage will suffer tremendously.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Three Chain Weights should be prioritized first and leveled up to 10, as it provides Suika with a not insubstantial amount of extra personal damage. Secondly, Oni Are Never False should be leveled up to 10, as the extra Barrier allows Suika to be more flexible with her Graze. Lastly, Ibuki Gourd can wait, as the survivability, while nice, isn’t strictly needed for Suika to do her job.

Character Strengths

+ Extremely damaging All targeting Last Word at 1 Power that scales well with additional Spirit Power.
+ All-target Last Word inflicts 2 Levels of Yin & Yang DEF Down for 3 Turns
+ Graze provides 1 Level of Yin ATK Up for 1 Turn for entire team
+ Second Spell Card provides 3 Levels of Accuracy Up for 3 Turns for Suika’s entire team

Character Weaknesses

- Only team support is on her Last Word's debuffs
- Very low on focused elemental breaks
