Mikazuki
Expand
Mikazuki (a Touhou LW original) refers to the moon on the third night of the lunar calendar, as well as the phase of the new moon before it waxes half full. The crescent moon is an apt temperament for Yorihime's astute and dignified personality. Yorihime is endowed with Wood Phase, with her flexible spiritual nature that allows her to house various gods, and Moon Essence, which is calm and collected.

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 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 Yorihime's Spread Shot (a Touhou LW original). She slashes out with a katana imbued with godly thunder. The power borrowed from a certain god of war is toned down by a considerable amount, so she can participate in battles of bullets under the same rules as everyone else.

Watatsuki no Yorihime's Spell Card (a Touhou LW original). She summons different gods of war one after the other and attacks with each in turn.

Character Ability

Capable of summoning divine spirits
Expand
Watatsuki no Yorihime's ability allows her to summon divine spirits and house them within her body. Considering the fact that she summoned the ruler of the Yaoyorozu no Kami, Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun, there may not be any gods that she cannot summon. However, it is unknown what would happen if she tried to summon Kanako in Gensokyo, her superior Lord Tsukuyomi, or Hecatia Lapislazuli. It is also unknown whether she can summon just a portion of their power or not. Regardless, her ability is undeniably powerful. According to Yorihime herself, the number of different Yaoyorozu no Kami she can summon is eight million. (Yaoyorozu means both eight million and countless in Japanese.)
DMG to resisted elements 30% UP.

Character Analysis

Watatsuki no Yorihime was released on August 27th, 2021 in both Festival: Lunar Princess of Swords & Spirits and the 72H Starter Festival.

Watatsuki no Yorihime is a Lunarian princess in charge of the Lunarian Defense Corps, responsible for the training of moon rabbit troops along with her older sister Watatsuki no Toyohime. Yorihime is pretty serious and a bit stubborn to most strangers that come across her and she seems to like to keep a form of dignity about her. However she does have a notable soft spot for her older sister Toyohime whom she worries for deeply when the two are apart. Yorihime is ridiculously a strong fighter and posesses a multitude of crazy abilities that boils down to "summoning the power of the gods". This is similar to Reimu Hakurei's ability to do the same, though unlike Reimu, Yorihime has several years more worth of experience and skill using the power. Yorihime is so good, in fact, that she is able to defeat other powerful beings like Remilia Scarlet and Sakuya Izayoi. In Touhou LostWord Yorihime's overwhelming strength transfers over rather decently, placing her at A+ Tier.

For farming purposes, Yorihime can smite her foes down with divine vengeance, aided by the ATK UP that Divine Banishment: Paradise Lost provides. However, she'll pretty much always need at least two turns to farm anything, and sometimes even three. 
Solo Stage Farms: 3-3-3

For more challenging levels however Yorihime shines exceptionally. The Yin support provided from her skills and Last Word along with the speed support provided from her other skills scaling her Slice values will give her a monstrous amount of damage at P3. When paired with the amazing elemental coverage provided from her Last Word, Yorihime makes most challenges a lot easier against enemies you need to take out quickly. For a proper build up of Yorihime, it is advised to use a P boosting Story Card on the first of Yori's Spell Cards, Deity Banishing "Paradise Lost", then using the second of that same Spell Card the turn after, and lastly her Last Word along with her last two Skills.

These strengths at max potential can outweigh the rather glaring Achilles Heel that is her first turn weakness shaping Yorihime up to be a powerhouse of a unit when used correctly.

Her Slice values are as follows:

 Yamata no Orochi Install: 25/25/30/35/35/35%

Story Card Recommendations

Spell Card

As Yorihime already has all the Yin ATK UP she needs from her Last Word, look to Crit ATK UP or Spirit Power UP. If she's in a fight where Gensokyo Killer won't enable her to automatically crit, look to Agility UP. For Stat Sticks, get her anything with both Yin ATK and AGI on it, though Yin ATK is preferred.

Last Word

As Yorihime's Last Word is entirely Body tagged, and she already has Accuracy and Yin ATK in spades, she overwhelmingly prefers Body DMG UP. Whilst Eating Contest is her best option here, Hoshiguma Dish is a solid budget option that's only 3* and thus very easy to MLB.

Character Skill Level Up Recommendations

The order of which to level up Yorihime's skills is fairly self-explanatory. Evil-Slaying Arrow should be leveled first as the raised accuracy and speed can improve her overall damage quite a bit. For similar reasons, Amatsumara's Aid should be the next skill to look towards to help improve the result of her damage like before. Lastly, Ame no Torifune's Aid only provides Yorihime with 0.75P at max level which alone is pretty mediocre. Upgrade this skill if you will, but it isn't a priority over the time it would take to level it all the way.

Character Strengths

+ Incredible damage when properly set-up
+ All Spell Cards are Yin Only, allowing her to do damage outside of her Last Word relatively better than other attackers
+ Varied elemental coverage on Last Word at P3

Character Weaknesses

- Weak Turn 1 damage
- No elements on Last Word until P2
- Purely selfish attacker
