Flandre in Fan Culture

  • As the younger sister, she is commonly called 「妹様」 or "imouto-sama" by fans.
  • A common meme regarding Flandre is 「フランちゃんうふふ」 ("flan-chan ufufu") since many people attribute the slightly sinister laugh "ufufu" to Flandre, if not PC-98 Marisa, as well as the fact that her name is commonly affectionately abbreviated 「フランちゃん」 ("Flan-chan").
  • In some fanworks, the crystals on her wings are sometimes shown to be storage for Magical Power.
  • In many fanworks, Flandre is shown with one of two different personalities, or possibly a bipolar one. One is a personality based on her appearance - very childish, and the other is a super sadistic and violent mass-murder-like personality, based on her possibly accumulated hate of the years trapped in the mansion. The latter has seemed to die down in recent years, though.
  • Her boss theme ("U.N.Owen was her?"), has become popular on various video websites because of videos such as this and this and has been the first contact with Touhou for thousands of internet users.
  • Flandre has been depicted in some fan-art alongside Koishi. This could stem from the fact that they both are extra stage bosses and possess destructive powers greater than those of their sisters, and that they (Satori and Remilia) both own mansions, Remilia the Scarlet Devil Mansion and Satori the Earth Spirit Palace. Not only that, but Flandre and Koishi have spent most of their lives in their sisters' mansions.
  • Because she is portrayed to be childish, there are some videos of her with Cirno.
  • Some fan works also depict Flandre as friends with Marisa Kirisame, though the exact reason is unknown (though possibly because Marisa agreed to 'play' with her.)
  • In Marisa's Extra Stage, Marisa makes a remark "Maybe I shoulda said nurse?" This has led to fan speculation that Flandre apparently knows who Rin Satsuki is.
  • Flandre's ability is "destruction of anything by crushing the eye" : this ability is seen in fanworks when her fist is clenched (certainly crushing "the eye" of the thing she wants to destroy). So far we can see her destroy : the sun (like this), Marisa's Mini-Hakkero (like this)and even a meteor (like this).
  • Due to her personality, some fans speculate Flandre could have autism or Asperger's syndrome. Most fans of Touhou, and maybe even ZUN himself, have this disorder.
  • A common type of fan work depicts her with Marx (from Kirby Super Star) due to their wings. Flandre is also sometimes depicted in crossovers with Jevil (from Deltarune) because both were isolated due to their insane and destructive nature, and their association with 'playing games'
