Hinode
Expand
Hinode (a Touhou LW original) refers to the phenomenon where the sun rises up from below the horizon once per day. An apt temperament for Miko, who used the title, ''Empress of the Land of the Rising Sun.''

Since she was sealed during her long sleep, she lacks the three Essences of Sun, Moon, and Star. Miko is endowed with Water Phase, as she can hear the flow of the spirit world.

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 Spread Shot of Toyosatomimi no Miko from a world overflowing with divine spirits (a Touhou LW original). An attack that spreads her views beyond the sea. According to one theory, Prince Shoutoku sent the first envoy to the Sui court. It was an attempt to collect the knowledge necessary to change the world and build a nation. This incredible feat is impossible for someone of mundane talent. It can only be accomplished by those who have reached the level of hermits and the divine.

The Focus Shot of Toyosatomimi no Miko from a world overflowing with divine spirits (a Touhou LW original). An attack where deities respond to Miko's wish. Prince Shoutoku is said to have carved statues of the Four Heavenly Kings and prayed to them before a battle to secure political power... the battle against Mononobe no Moriya. Perhaps Miko could already hear the voices of divine spirits and predict the future at this time.

A Spell Card of Toyosatomimi no Miko from a world overflowing with divine spirits. An attack that resembles the Twelve Level Cap and Rank System established by Prince Shoutoku. According to a theory, establishing this system allowed the Imperial Court to attract talented people other than the nobles and improve its diplomatic image. Prince Shoutoku might have invited masters from overseas to join the court during this period.

A Spell Card of Toyosatomimi no Miko from a world overflowing with divine spirits. Leaders of two powerful clans dance chaotically in this attack. The age of the powerful clans, called gouzoku, was nearing its end before Miko's death. Previously, the most powerful clans were the driving political forces of the land as they held overwhelming influence over the provinces and asserted authority over the capital. However, a system centered on the imperial court was rapidly established after Miko's appearance. Miko did dominate the opposing powerful clans through military force, but another power was necessary to make the reforms... the power of faith―spiritual domination.

The Last Word of Toyosatomimi no Miko from a world overflowing with divine spirits (a Touhou LW original). The Divine Spirit Universe was originally a type of attack called overdrive. But Miko created this Spell Card by adjusting that attack to be used as her Last Word. Miko resembles Toyosatomimi of the past in how she draws small divine spirits (desire spirits) to her and listens to their voices. The countless small divine spirits gathered in one place look like a whole galaxy's worth of stars. This place where she can hear all of their voices is like Gensokyo's Akashic Records.

Character Ability

Capable of listening to ten people's conversations at the same time.
Expand
The ability of Toyosatomimi no Miko from a world overflowing with divine spirits (a Touhou LW original). It is probably the same as our version of Miko's ability...

Miko was called Toyosatomimi in her past life because she possessed superhuman senses and intellect. There is even a legend about how she heard the petitions of ten supplicants at the same time. These senses were different from simple good hearing as it is difficult to process ten voices speaking simultaneously. She must have been able to hear the voices of divine spirits... the voices of desires since that time. It seems that the legend where Prince Shoutoku helped a starving man on the hill of Kataoka and the tale where the prince built a shrine after hearing a prophecy by the god Tatsuta in the guise of an old man... were both possible because the prince could hear the voices of divine spirits.

Although there are many legends about Prince Shoutoku, the one about the Miraiki, a collection of the prince's predictions for the future, is perhaps where the prince's ability to hear divine spirits was the most significant. If the Miraiki was indeed written by Miko's own hand, it means that she could see... no, hear the future of this country. Hearing of this magnitude is on the same level as a horned owl that can distinguish the faintest sounds at night. It is like a complex, three-dimensional, and vivid second sight. It could be said that Miko had a clear vision of the future of this country before her death.

Ages had passed when Toyosatomimi no Miko finally came back to life in Gensokyo. When she awoke, she saw not only the country she had once foreseen... but also the future of Gensokyo. Did what the Miko of this world see in her Gensokyo's future give her a sufficient reason to prolong the incident? If so, what did she see?

Character Analysis

A13 Toyosatomimi no Miko was released on August 12th, 2022 in Festival: Legendary Listener of Desires.

Toyosatomimi no Miko is the incarnation of the real life politician named Prince Shoutoku, a historical figure from the Asuka period. As of writing, Miko is 1448 years old and her birthday is on February 7th. In the world of Gensokyo, Toyosatomimi no Miko is a saint and a hermit who initially spread Buddhism, but was taught Taoism by Seiga Kaku. She was also a genius from a young age and is able to listen to ten conversations at the same time as well as impart her wisdom to even her elders. During the events of Ten Desires, Miko was sealed and would fight the heroine once it is known that she is resurrected. It was mainly thanks to the unsealing of another religious monk that was able to be released, causing some religious conflicts in Gensokyo’s future. In this world of divine spirits, we may find that things are a little different to what we are used to, with the reborn hermit cementing herself as an S+ Tier Friend.

Miko, a follower of Taoism, is not one for violence, but that definitely does not mean she lacks the capability to do so. She is a pure Yang attacker when it comes to her Last Word, Divine Spirit Universe, a spell which also raises the party’s Yang ATK by 2 levels (2T) and Yang DEF for 3 levels (3T). The Yang DEF is very practical for damage as well, as Miko has consistent Hard scaling at the beginning and end of the attack. Her immediate, turn 1 damage is decent, but at 2P and 3P the attack grants Miko even more Yang ATK and Yang DEF buffs to make setup damage very high. Getting 1.50 Spirit Power and 3 levels of Accuracy UP from her third skill, Senjutsu’s Arrival, makes this setup time slightly faster and easier. When combined with the other Yang-related buffs on her kit, Miko can flex her hermit knowledge and back it up.

While she is not shy of strengthening herself, Miko is actually a great Friend when it comes to teamwide support, primarily in Yang DEF. Capable of listening to ten people’s conversations at the same time, she raises the team’s Yang DEF when she Boosts and Grazes, which can very easily turn into 6 levels of Yang DEF UP for 1 turn with 3 Boosts and 3 Grazes. Even besides that and Divine Spirit Universe’s Yang DEF buff, she provides Yang DEF in many other ways, including her second spell, Summon: Powerful Clans’ Chaotic Dance, being able to raise the party’s Yang DEF by 2 levels (3T) or her first skill, Fiction to Fantasy, and its 3 levels of partywide Yang DEF UP (3T). This skill also comes with a partywide barrier restore, just like her first spell, Honor: Ranks of Twelve Levels. Given that Fiction to Fantasy can be leveled up to have a cooldown of only 4 turns, Miko not only protects the team with defensive buffs, but she can allow them to Graze many dangerous attacks or even just gain more buffs from Grazing due to gaining more barriers to use. Not every Friend might need the heavy Yang DEF buffs, but any Hard scaling Yang-based Friend will definitely get a boost, especially if they cannot max out the buff themselves.

Outside of the extreme defensive buffs, Miko has a few other tricks up her sleeve. To maximize on her own defenses and protect allies further, her second skill, Rising-Sun Empress, raises her Focus by 3 levels (4T) while also raising resistances to Water and Wood bullets (3T). While the Focus buff is long-lasting, it is sadly her only method to raise Focus outside of using Honor: Ranks of Twelve Levels, which can be problematic in keeping foes’ attention from her allies, even if the skill can get a 5-turn cooldown. As for breaking barriers, Summon: Powerful Clans’ Chaotic Dance has an additional post-ATK effect of inflicting foes with 1 layer of Burn and Paralyze (with a 50% chance of an extra of either anomaly). Both her basic shots can break either anomaly or Honor: Ranks of Twelve Levels can break both at once. It is a shame that this is only Solo-target while Summon: Powerful Clans’ Chaotic Dance targets all foes, but other allies can potentially break the anomalies instead. When it comes to elemental breaks, Miko does have 0P Sun on her Focus shot, Rhus Chinensis Sculptures, but the rest of her kit, mainly the spells, are just mixed with many elements, making them hard to support with element-based story cards or just break in general. At the very least, Divine Spirit Universe is half-Water/half-Sun, which definitely makes it easier to use against foes weak to those elements.

Overall, Miko has a niche in being one of the best partywide Yang DEF support Friends while having a great claim to Yang nuking and damage like any other A-Type Friend. Yang DEF buffs come from everywhere, from her spells to her skills to both Boosts and Grazes. She can even heal herself with Fiction to Fantasy or just get a quick head-start on the battle with Senjutsu’s Arrival. With basically everything in her kit contributing to victory, Miko teaches us an important Taoist lesson of not taking anything for granted. (I actually don’t believe this is a virtue in Taoism, but I’m sure Miko would agree!)

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Miko will always want more Spirit Power to access her spells’ stronger bullet lines and secondary effects, making The Witch of Scarlet Dreams as well as Dancer in The Puddle to be very practical cards. The latter card is a great stat stick for both Yang ATK and Yang DEF, giving it a great secondary purpose. Otherwise, Miko can look into cards that buff her Yang ATK even further, shown off well with cards such as How Irrational…. Any other Yang ATK buffs or Yang stat sticks will contribute well to Miko’s final damage with her Last Word.

Last Word

With a Last Word containing 6 lines of Light Bullets, Puppeteer and Necromancer becomes the obvious choice for raw damage thanks to its 50% boost in Light Bullet power. However, there are other viable options, like Serene Sage. Since Miko is not only assigned the Defense Class, but is also Yang-based, she is one of the few who can truly take advantage of this card’s ability to debuff an enemy’s Yang DEF by 3 levels (3T), and if Miko’s Yang DEF isn’t somehow maxed out already, she can buff her own Yang DEF also by 3 levels (3T). Finally, Behind The Bullets: Reimu is a surprisingly viable card to take advantage of with it boosting both Sun bullets and Light Bullets by 35% and 20% respectively to provide an overall higher boost than Puppeteer and Necromancer…at least when it comes to the spell up to 1P, as 2P and beyond has Water bullets.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

It is crucial to level up Miko’s skills to heavily decrease their cooldown timers, but the additional buffs from them are always good too. Start off with her third skill, Senjutsu’s Arrival, as it will decrease the 8-turn cooldown to only 6 turns to allow for that Spirit Power boost to return faster, along with Miko’s sole source of self-Accuracy support (which also gains an additional level). Afterwards, Fiction to Fantasy, Miko’s first skill, definitely benefits from levels, as it turns the still impressive 6-turn cooldown for 1 Barrier restore to a mere 4-turn cooldown! Miko additionally gets more self-healing off as well as additional Yang DEF buffs. Rising Sun Empress, Miko’s second skill, should still be leveled so that the Focus UP on her tanky structure can be up more often, but its other benefits of additional elemental resistance is definitely less practical than the previously mentioned skills.

Character Strengths

+ 0P Sun on Focus shot.
+ Some elemental anomaly infliction and breaking via spells.
+ Great at her role as a tank, including exceptional Yang DEF buffs for the team.
+ Powerful Last Word paired with high Yang stats.

Character Weaknesses

- Rainbow-element bullet lines on Spell Cards can be a hindrance.
- Lacking multiple Focus UP options for tanking.
