Element Type Chart
Shiokaze (a Touhou LW original) refers to the wind that blows from the sea to the shore when the tide is flowing. If Tewi really is the white hare of legend, the ocean breeze probably brings back painful memories. Tewi is endowed with Wood Phase, the element of the rabbit, and Star Essence, from her free-spirited nature.
The strong and kind Wood Phase resists Water Phase, because water nourishes wood, but it is weak to Metal Phase, because metal carves wood.
The diverse and uncooperative Star Essence resists the cooperative and indecisive Moon Essence, but it is weak to the charming and arrogant Sun Essence.

Capable of conferring good luck to humans
Tewi has the ability to confer good luck to her preferred target. She can even use the ability on herself. She mostly confers luck to the humans who get lost in the Bamboo Forest of the Lost so that they can find their way out. When they escape, their luck runs out, so the luck from Tewi's ability may be consumable. Incidentally, when people think of rabbits and luck, a rabbit's foot charm often comes to mind. It is a charm that is made of a rabbit's foot and is said to bestow mysterious fortune upon its owner. There are many theories behind it. Some say that because rabbits are skilled at digging holes, they often interact with the spirits of the Underworld, which may be why they are so blessed with fertility. Others say that their quick feet grant swift and safe escape from enemies on the battleground.

Tewi Inaba is a seemingly unassuming, playful earth rabbit who is actually, in spite of her at times childish actions, the leader of all earth rabbits. In addition to this, she is almost certainly the White Hare of Inaba, a legendary figure in Japanese mythology. Nowadays, due to a deal she struck with Eirin Yagokoro, in exchange for knowledge the earth rabbits serve as the guardians (and pets) of Eientei. You wouldn’t know any of this from how the rabbit acts like a total prankster, but don’t be fooled: those tricks and traps make for a S+ Tier Friend.
For farming purposes, Tewi is something of an unusual case. In spite of having an All-targeting Last Word, she actually shines the most for one boss stages, as her skill set makes her particularly good at pranking a single enemy. For stages with fewer bosses, especially if any of them resist her, her Last Word may fail to knock out all of her targets. Additionally, she excels at a number of boss farms: most notably, for farming the boss of Chapter 2 Act 2, when combined with a powerful Yang attacker such as Yuyuko.
For challenge quests, Tewi provides incredible team support, especially for Yang-heavy teams. This is due to the fact that her All-targeting Last Word provides 3 Levels of Yang DEF Down to all targets - effectively serving as a multiplier to any ATK Up they may have. So for example, Yuyuko’s 10 Levels of Yang ATK Up would effectively become 22 Levels of ATK Up! It also has a good chance of applying Yin DEF Down, though you need to provide her Last Word with 3 Boosts to maximize your chances of it occuring.
That’s not all: She also has three powerful skills, although as they all only affect one target, you must carefully choose which skills to apply to which targets. They’re most notable for applying both (Yin or Yang) DEF Down and two Layers of Barrier Status (Either Poison or Burn), which has a further multiplicative effect with DEF Down: to use the previous Yuyuko example, between the additional 3 Levels of Def Down, and the 2 Layers of Poison, Yuyuko would effectively have 45.4 Levels of ATK Up. Whilst obviously not every unit can reach these heights, it goes to show the power of her incredibly potent debuffs. Additionally, since these are skills on a short cooldown, you can get multiple uses out of them in the Scarlet Devil Tower for some extra value, even if Tewi’s already used her Last Word.
Of course, this is also leaving out Tewi’s own damage output. Due to the previously mentioned interaction DEF Down has with ATK Up, when armed with a Yang ATK Up Story Card, Tewi’s damage output skyrockets through the roof - albeit, mostly against a primary target. Whilst her damage against her secondary targets is still impressive, it’s merely a third of what she can do to her primary target.
Finally, Tewi also has a rather average kit when it comes to breaking enemies, with her first Spell Card having 1/1/2/3 Sun Breaks at 0/1/2/3 Power, and her second having 1/2/3 Star Breaks at 0/1/2 Power. Do remember however that using a Last Word will lock you out of your Spell Cards, and that DEF Down does not work with a Full Break, so you will have to be careful to keep Tewi alive over multiple floors if you want her to both Break and then later provide amazing DEF Down support.
Overall, Tewi combines both a ton of DEF Down and Barrier Status support with a fantastic amount of damage. You may have to put up with some pranks, but it’ll be more than worth the headaches.
