Reimu Hakurei is one of the main characters of the Touhou series, having appeared in almost every game in the series. As the sole maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, she is commonly called upon (or calls it upon herself) to investigate strange occurrences throughout the world.

In earlier games, Reimu's spiritual abilities were highly limited. (In Highly Responsive to Prayers, she was in fact unable to harm enemies directly at all.) As time went by, however, she developed her abilities, becoming able to use the Yin-Yang Orb, special amulets and her own (limited) spiritual power in order to fight more effectively. Sometime between Mystic Square and Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, this culminated in her developing the ability to fly under her own power. (Before then, she relied on Genjii, her turtle familiar, to fly, and in fact did not fly at all in HRtP.)

As her abilities have changed, so has Reimu's personality. She is commonly described as easygoing, curious, at least somewhat dutiful (at least, the shrine hasn't fallen apart due to negligence on her part), and optimistic—sometimes overly so. Her personality seems sympathetic toward many individuals; there are few people indeed who remain her rivals past the first game in which they appear (though this is not to say she doesn't get into fights after the first meeting), and the shrine has become a moderately popular hangout for some of Gensokyo's more interesting female individuals.

In Undefined Fantastic Object, she seems very intent on getting the treasure ship's riches, probably due to the events following the Hakurei Shrine's repair and re-opening in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody.

Fun Facts

  • The characters for Reimu's last name "博麗" (Romanized: Hakurei) literally mean something like "esteemed companion", the first word "博" (Haku) means "wide" or "exposition" while "麗" (Rei) means "lovely", "graceful", and "beautiful". Her first name "霊夢" (Romanized: Reimu) means "revelatory dream" or "a vision", the first word "霊" read as "Rei" means "spirit" or "soul" while "夢" (Romanized: Yume) is read "Mu" and means "dream".
  • The surname Hakurei is also another name for sake, as the maker of the Touhou series, ZUN, is quite the connoisseur of "spirits", so much so that fans often speculate over whether ZUN might be or have been an alcoholic.
  • Reimu has appeared as a playable character in every integer-numbered game in the Touhou series.
  • Reimu makes an official appearance as "Flying Maiden" in Graffiti Kingdom, as ZUN was involved in the production of it.
  • Reimu appeared on the cover of all the PC-98 Touhou games, from the first game in the series to the fifth.
  • Reimu was never seen flying with her own power until Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. In the previous games, if Reimu needed to go somewhere far, she would ride on her turtle familiar, Genjii.
  • Although her many profiles suggest that the "Hakurei Clan" and the shrine Reimu lives at have been in Gensokyo for long enough to be considered ancient, there has never been any mention of Reimu's family members, ancestors, etc. It is originally stated that she lives alone at the shrine, but other rarely seen characters (Mima and Shingyoku) are known to stay there or near there as well.
  • Two or more Reimu(s) may exist. The circumstantial evidence suggests 靈夢 (from the PC-98 games) and 霊夢 (from the Windows games) may be different people. However, this is extraordinarily unlikely, as Yuka recalls Reimu, Alice recalls Reimu, and ZUN uses the new kanji to refer to the old Reimu now. Also, her bio in Embodiment of Scarlet Devil's "おまけ.txt" file says, "Chronologically this title is not too far from the previous title, thus her age stays the same as before". Since the previous title in question would be Mystic Square, the last game in which PC-98 Reimu appeared in, and Embodiment of Scarlet Devil is the first game in which Windows Reimu appears, the bio appears to further debunk this theory.
  • Reimu's Yin-Yang Orb exhibits some strange powers, aside from helping her attack her enemies. The greatest powers of the Hakurei Yin-Yang Orb are:
    1. Even if you eat sweets, you won't get fat
    2. One of your favorite aromas can be given off
    3. The yin-yang orb can be disguised as a cat
  • Because of how she dresses in the Windows Touhou Games, her exposed armpits are sometimes the target of jokes and memes, with "Waki Miko Reimu" or 「腋巫女霊夢」 being a popular phrase.
  • The drastic change in the color of Reimu's skin tone over the course of the Windows games (most noticeable in Mountain of Faith, in which her skin appears yellowish and almost jaundiced) raised eyebrows and led to a number of jokes and dubious theories, the most common of which is that she is actually an undead zombie.
  • In Imperishable Night Reimu is the only one whose partner doesn't mention the danger of the full moon.
  • When playing Yukari's story mode in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, Reimu breaks down in tears in the ending after Yukari defeats Tenshi and reduces the Hakurei Shrine to rubble for the second time, with Sakuya and Youmu looking on helplessly (although Suika offers to help rebuild it). This marks the first and only time where she is seen crying in a storyline scenario.
  • Reimu's Last Word 「夢想天生」 "Fantasy Heaven" (Pronounced: Musou Tensei) is a homonym of 「無想転生」 "Unconscious Transmigration of Souls" (Also pronounced: Musou Tensei), Kenshiro's ultimate technique in Hokuto no Ken. In 12.3, if you activate Fantasy Heaven successfully in a 3rd round, a remix of Mystical Oriental Love Consultation will play with the sounds of the Fatal KO theme from the Hokuto no Ken fighting game, fitting because activation of the said Spell Card means the opponent is certainly already dead! Because of this it is now known as the Hakurei Hyakuretsu Ken to some fans.
  • In Touhou Hisoutensoku, one of her alternative palettes looks similar to VIVIT, the heroine of Seihou. Also, one of her palettes seems to be another maid homage, Ruukoto, or possibly Sanae's colors. The palette also seems to resemble Mima from Highly Responsive to Prayers. Her white/light gray palette seems to resemble Toki from Hokuto no Ken. And finally, her white/light blue palette looks like a tribute to Nanoha, as they both tend to "befriend" their opponents with superior firepower.
  • In Lotus Land Story, when you clear Easy Mode with Reimu and just before the Name Registry screen shows up, you get a Congratulation screen with a drawing of her wearing an outfit that very closely resembles her outfit from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil (save for non-detached sleeves).

She's always involved in some strange affairs, though she seems to be dragged into most of them due to Marisa. Reimu pretends not to notice this. She sees Marisa as essentially a hopeless case.

Eternal Shrine Maiden, Reimu Hakurei
Shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, and protagonist of the Touhou series. She appears quite carefree on the outside, and indeed deep down, she really is carefree. She lives in her shrine and is rarely visited by anyone, which causes her to be out of touch with current social norms. Even though she only extinguished certain sparks of conflict because they seemed to befall her without warning, her actions have generally resulted in preventing the residents of Gensokyo from visiting human settlements, and keeping outsiders away from wandering into Gensokyo.

Charms and the ying-yang orb are her weapons. Additionally, she has the ability to fly.

The protagonist.

Chronologically this title is not too far from the previous title, thus her age stays the same as before.

Unintentionally, she is a shrine maiden. Or rather, she is a shrine maiden only because the Touhou series has become the "Shrine Maiden Shooting Game" series. It feels like the cart has been placed before the horse to me.

This time, her outfit is not overly intricate like typical shrine maiden clothing, but has become quite simple and only remotely resembles that of a shrine maiden. Is she really a shrine maiden?

She's more like "You, red-white!" in my opinion.

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise, Reimu Hakurei
Hakurei Shrine's shrine maiden, and the protagonist. Her mind might appear normal, but in fact it is full of spring thoughts.
The shrine is always haunted by youkai, and they are very friendly to Reimu as well.
She is hardly filling the role of a shrine maiden at this point.
She hates training, and because of this, lacks ability. So her skill is quite so-so.
She hates to do her very best at anything that falls upon her.
That is because she does not believe that effort will be rewarded.
Because of that, the Hakurei Shrine's paper fortune doesn't have "末吉(Least luck)"
[Typically, a shrine's paper fortune has 大吉 (Best luck) / 中吉 (Medium luck) / 小吉 (Little luck) / 末吉 (Least luck) / 凶 (Misfortune) / 大凶 (Worst misfortune). 末吉 is usually interpreted as "You will get exactly as your effort"]

Charms and the yin-yang orb are her weapons. Additionally, she has the ability to fly.

She has a smaller hit box, and her focused movement allows player to dodge very precisely.
Spirit Sign's "Hakurei Amulet" is quite easy to use. It allows you to focus on dodging bullets.
On the other hand, Dream Sign's "Extermination" wields destructive power of the highest class.
Bosses are killed quickly, but the invincibility duration of her bombs is the shortest of all characters. It is also lacking in both effective radius and damage.

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise
Reimu Hakurei

Her main ability allows her to fly in the sky.

Basically, she is a shrine maiden. The shrine maiden of Hakurei Shrine, which is located on the boundary of Gensokyo.
The Hakurei Shrine exists in both Gensokyo and the world of humans at the same time.
The boundary is the home territory of the Hakurei Shrine. From both sides, it is located at a very remote place from human villages, and is also kind of small, and has no known history or benefits. So it's no wonder that it rarely gets any visitors.
Inside the shrine, almost all foreign boundaries will be nullified. That alone should say that the Hakurei Boundary, the boundary between Gensokyo and the world of humans, is amazingly powerful.

Only members of the Hakurei clan have rules to follow in Gensokyo. Therefore, Reimu always wears clothes that is apparently some kind of uniform (she is supposed to have many other rules too, though...). Her daily routine consists of wearing red-white, staring at Gensokyo's sky from the edge of Gensokyo, and drinking tea.

Originally, Reimu had several various mysterious powers, but she neither uses them nor boasts about them. It's kind of a laid-back attitude.

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise
Reimu Hakurei

Species: Human
Location: Hakurei Shrine
Ability: Able to fly in the sky

A typical shrine maiden from Hakurei Shrine. She always lives on ideas off the top of her head, and doesn't consider something seriously. The only thing she does that actually resembles a shrine maiden's duties is enjoying tea and life on the veranda.

She is quite simple-minded, thus when she's angry she's angry, and when she smiles she smiles. Her open personality makes her well-liked by both humans and youkai. Due to that, many people stay close to the shrine.

She lacks training in both melee and spells (or rather, she rarely does them), but she covers that up with the numerous talents she's born with. So she's quite tough, enough to make you wonder if she's really a human. While she warps or uses guided shots, it's all straight from her perspective. Mean shrine maiden.

  感情的で騒々しく、どんな場所でも存在感があるのだが、すぐに馴染む。
  彼女の能力は空を飛ぶこと、つまり無重力。
  地球の重力も、如何なる重圧も、力による脅しも、彼女には全く意味が無い。
  身も心も、幻想の宙をふわふわと漂う不思議な巫女である。

    低速移動は単独使用時のみの性能である。
    威力が若干劣る事もあるが基本的に使いやすく、敵の場所を覚える必要も少ない。

Wonderful Shrine Maiden of Paradise, Reimu Hakurei
Hakurei Shrine's Shrine Maiden.
A human that lives on the boundary. She has the ability to fly.

She is the shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, which is located at the edge of Gensokyo and (possibly) has ancient and honourable origins.
She is emotional and noisy, and has a presence wherever she is, but she merges into her surroundings quite easily.
Her ability is being able to fly, that is, being weightless.
The gravity of Earth, any level of stress, and threats of power all have no effect on her.
Both her mind and body float in the sky of fantasy, a truly mysterious shrine maiden.
However intimidating the opponent is, that doesn't matter to her.
As she evens out whatever status one has, she tends to attract anyone regardless of species, human or youkai.

Her weapons are amulets and a Yin-Yang orb. She is also preferred by mosquitoes.

Notes
She teams with Yukari this time.
Focused speed only applies when she is used as a solo character.
She lacks a bit in damage, but is quite easy to use and doesn't need much memorization.
She is quite strong, especially against smaller enemies.
In other words, cheap.

As usual, the shrine maiden you all know. She lives in the Hakurei Shrine located at the boundary that separates Gensokyo from the outer world. The shrine simultaneously exists in both worlds.

She treats everyone fairly and equally, which makes her well-liked by even the most terrifying youkai. On the flip side, she doesn't treat anyone especially well and doesn't think of anyone as "special". While she's often seen with a wide assortment of humans and youkai, and does get along with them, she's actually alone in her heart. She may be kind of cold-hearted...

The shrine maiden you all know.

The morning that she was expecting to see after a full night's sleep did not greet her. She thought that something very strange was going on, so she left the shrine to investigate. It's not unusual for her to go out at night, but going out at midnight just after having taken a full night's rest was most unusual. Anyway, nights always make her sleepy, so she'll be going back to bed once the issue is resolved. She followed a trace of power into a bamboo forest, and what she found were very familiar faces...

  妖怪に対しては厳しいポーズを取っているが、
  実際は人間も妖怪にもさほど興味はない。

  ただ、今回は神様を巡っての騒動である。
  神様の代弁者としても、
  ただの妖怪退治とは勝手が違って、戸惑い気味。

  武器は御札と陰陽玉。信仰心は薄そう。

  攻撃性能は、全体的に無難な挙動で安定感のある装備となっています。

The Shrine Maiden of Paradise - Reimu Hakurei
The now-familiar shrine maiden of the Hakurei Shrine.

She treats everyone basically the same way.
However, since her job is hunting youkai,
She takes a fairly strict stance against youkai,
But she's basically equally uninterested in humans and youkai.

This time there's a rebellion around God.
She may be God's spokesperson,
But her circumstances as a youkai hunter are different, so she feels a bit lost.

Her weapons are amulets and yin-yang balls. Her piety seems light.

Her fighting style generally relies on equipment that lends a sense of stability.

Book Synopsis

Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red

Main article: Article and Interview: Reimu

Taking place a year after the events of Perfect Cherry Blossom, the interview is about the Flower Viewing at the Hakurei Shrine. In the interview, Reimu complains about the work she has to do after the banquet, so Aya promptly appeases her with sake, exploiting her weakness. Aya then proceeds to try and worm information regarding the incident from Reimu, who is getting drunk.

The rest of the article consist of Aya and Reimu bickering when Reimu herself is obviously drunk.

  • Reimu makes constant remarks, similar to the rest of the Touhou cast's, that the Bunbunmaru Newspaper is full of lies.
  • Aya makes no effort at all to recognize Reimu's deeds.
  • From the article, it seems that Reimu, not Marisa, is responsible for stopping those incidents.

Perfect Memento in Strict Sense

  • Reimu lives in the Hakurei Shrine and is supposedly tasked with the maintenance of the Great Boundary.
  • Apparently Reimu has great luck, intuition and talent, and does not train.
  • Her personality never changes, and she treats everyone equally.
  • However, her view on youkai is that one should hunt them without complaint.
  • Her real ability is the ability to fly, and with the power of the Hakurei Shrine maiden, she is unrivaled.
  • No youkai dares oppose her, for if she is defeated, the Great Boundary might collapse.
  • Reimu thus has Gensokyo in the palm of hand, so to speak.
  • Reimu invented the Spell Card rules, which are intended to allow youkai and humans to settle conflicts without the use of lethal force.
  • She is often seen going to shop in the human village. Where does she get the money? Donations?
  • Of course, since she teaches youkai lessons on her way there, she might get paid for that...
  • Her job is to resolve incidents, and she does it without complaint, despite having people contending for the job.
