Mochizuki
Expand
Mochizuki (a Touhou LW original) refers to the full moon and the phase of the moon on the fifteenth night of the lunar calendar. Toyohime's temperament is reflected in the light of the full moon, which can be both gentle or harsh. Toyohime is endowed with Metal Phase, with her deep-seated will of iron, and Moon Essence, with her resourcefulness.

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

Watatsuki no Toyohime's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). This attack emits pink lasers. Toyohime loves peaches so much that she once fell out of a window when trying to pluck one from a peach tree in her garden. On the moon, peach trees even grow along the coast, so you can imagine how many trees there must be in the capital and its surroundings. Incidentally, Heaven is also known for having many peach trees.

Watatsuki no Toyohime's Focus Shot (a Touhou LW original). She uses some sort of grenade launcher-type item in the shape of a shark which shoots out cans of peaches. The Lunar Capital is said to be more technologically advanced than earth, so while this item may look comedic, it could actually be highly sophisticated. The shark design may refer to the ancient mythological creature called the Yahiro-wani, who was an envoy of Ryuuguu, a legendary undersea palace. It is debated whether the Yahiro-wani was a crocodile or a shark.

Watatsuki no Toyohime's Spell Card (a Touhou LW original). This attack uses the ocean current to sweep away her targets. Toyohime can connect the sea (the far side of the moon) and the mountains (Gensokyo), and travel freely from one to the other. She apparently used this power to interfere with Yukari's ability to travel through gaps, which indicates how strong the power is.

Watatsuki no Toyohime's Spell Card (a Touhou LW original). This attack recreates the flames that lit Izanagi's comb torch. Promising not to look at something is a common trope in mythology and folklore. Tsuru no Ongaeshi, or Crane's Return of a Favor, is a Japanese folk tale where a man breaks a promise not to look in on his wife. She is revealed to be a crane that he once saved and subsequently leaves, never to return. In European folklore, there are tales of a maiden who transforms into a dragon and leaves after her husband spies on her in the bath.

Watatsuki no Toyohime's Last Word (a Touhou LW original). This attack unleashes bullets in the form of an ancient crocodilian. According to the owner of a certain antique store, dragons are born in the sea and return to life in the sea, which means their bones must be somewhere in the sea too. Living dragons are nowhere to be found in the outside world, so the sea probably refers to the sea of tranquility on the moon. Incidentally, Toyohime once hosted Mizue no Uranoshimako (the assumed model for Urashima Tarou of Japanese legend) on his visit to the moon, which means Ryuuguu, the Dragon Palace, may in fact be the Lunar Capital.

Character Ability

Capable of linking the sea and the mountain
Expand
The mountains are Gensokyo and the sea is the far side of the moon. Toyohime's ability is linking the two. She uses it to go to and from Gensokyo as she pleases. Considering that she once used this ability to thwart Yukari Yakumo, it is without a doubt incredibly powerful. This is an apt ability for a moon emissary. Eirin loves her two students, Toyohime and Yorihime, and passed on the role of Moon Emissary directly to them both. Toyohime appears to have inherited Eirin's knowledge of quantum physics with her ability to connect two places and teleport instantaneously, but it is still unknown what other abilities she may possess. However, it is clear that she has an incredible intellect, just like Eirin.

Character Analysis

Watatsuki no Toyohime was released on August 17th, 2021 in Festival: Lunar Princess of Peaches & Paths.

The Moon Princess Connecting Sea and Mountain, Watatsuki no Toyohime is one of the two lunarian princesses in charge of the Lunarian Defense Corps alongside her sister, Watasuki no Yorihime. A woman blessed with extreme fortune, Toyohime is a somewhat carefree and soft soul who is beloved by the rabbits of the moon. Even so, she's not one to be trifled with - not only can she essentially teleport to anywhere on the earth or the moon at will, she also possesses a fan that can reduce anything to atoms. That raw destructive power is on your side as A+ Tier Friend.

For farming content, Toyohime is a rather strong All targeting stage farmer, but her output is unfortunately somewhat lacking when it comes to stronger farmers vs bulkier solo target fights (six digit HP on bosses is the normal now, not the exception). You can use Taboo: Comb Torch of Shame combined with a Spirit Power UP Story Card to help her attempt to muscle past them, as that will immensely raise her output. 

For harder fights, Toyohime is still no slouch. Her main claim to fame remains her All targeting Last Word - Toyotamaphimeia Machikanensis (try saying that five times fast). It possesses the rare and potent Gensokyo Killer - essentially, a portion of the damage will crit on anyone who lives in Gensokyo (but not Gensokyo’s underground, such as Satori), which is a massive portion of all enemies. As a nice perk, this means that Toyhohime can still benefit fairly well from sources of CRIT ATK UP, making her exceedingly flexible in which teams she can fit in. Otherwise, the 2-2-1 nature of it combined with her skills means she’s gonna hit hard in both short fights and long fights. 

That being said, unlike most attackers, Toyohime isn’t just reliant on her Last Word for damage. As both of her Spell Cards are Yin ATK only, they're unusually easy for her to scale off of her better attacking stat. Additionally, they both possesses 3 Turn buffs - Promise: The Path Between Land and Sea provides Toyohime with 2 Levels of Accuracy for 3 turns with a 60% chance for 1 more Level, and Taboo: Comb Torch of Shame gives her the same but Yin ATK instead. Combine this with the Yin ATK and Accuracy she gets from her first two Spell Cards, and if you play your cards right Toyohime is essentially going to be able to keep firing off super high power Spell Cards with the ability to run Spirit Power granting Story Cards, which allows her to fire off Spell Cards with high levels of ATK UP, perfect Accuracy, and multiple boosts - whereas most attackers would have to choose one or the other.

Lastly, the final noteworthy part of her kit when deciding to bring Toyohime along is her absurd amount of Accuracy UP. Essentially, she has so much of it that she invalidates any fight that tries to use Evasion UP or Accuracy DOWN as a gimmick - these fights aren’t the most common, but when they do show up, the lunar princess completely obliterates them with a wave of her fan.

Unfortunately even such a flawless looking princess does, in fact, have flaws. Firstly, she’s a selfish attacker, so she brings nothing but damage to the table (granted, she brings so much that it hardly matters). Secondly, her Barrier Break potential is nonexistent - Not only do both of her Spell Cards have only 2 Breaks at 3 Power, said Breaks are totally different elements - it's not as bad for Promise: The Path Between Land and Sea, as it at least targets All, but her other Spell Card is almost never going to get more than 1 Break.

Still, those two weaknesses come nowhere close to undermining her extreme strengths, and there’s rarely a fight where Toyohime isn’t a great call. Plus, she'll bring peaches for snack time after fights!

Here are the scaling of Toyohime’s Hard bullets:

Toyotamaphimeia Machikanensis: 15%/20%/25%/30%/35%/40%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

Since Toyohime can already have perfect Accuracy on both of her Spell Cards and jacks her Yin ATK up to the heavens while she’s at it if you carefully use her skills and alternate her Spell Cards so that her buffs don’t expire, the only real option for her is cards which grant Spirit Power UP. If you’re looking for stat sticks, you primarily want Yin ATK, but since her Last Word does have a non-zero amount of Hard on it, it’s technically better to provide her with Yin ATK and Yin DEF -  but Yin ATK is worth far, far more for her.

Last Word

Toyohime scales purely off of Yin ATK, so Story Cards which provide levels of Yin ATK UP are her best bet. If you can already provide her with 10 Yin ATK UP in a longer fight (which is somewhat trivial due to Taboo: Comb Torch of Shame), a Spell Card which boosts Body DMG such as Eating Contest becomes her best option and catapults her damage to the stratosphere. 

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

Firstly, raise Quantum Teleport to level 9, as the 3 Yin ATK UP is by far the highest value in her kit - level 10 can wait, as all it does is lower the cooldown by a turn which will practically never be useful, especially for Toyohime due to her ability to refresh her buffs with her Spell Cards. Afterwards, Toyohime doesn't really need any more levels in her skills until you're out of priority targets, but it may be worth bringing Thin Cord of Instants up to level 5 to help her deal with Evasion heavy fights. 

Character Strengths

+ Great Turn 1 Damage
+ High set-up damage
+ All Spell Cards are Yin Only, allowing her to do damage outside of her Last Word relatively better than other attackers

Character Weaknesses

- No utility
- Almost no Breaks
