See Character Titles

Suika is the only oni currently living above ground in Gensokyo, with the remainder of the oni race living underground. Just as the folktales say, she has two horns on her head that symbolize her oni heritage, and enough physical strength to throw large boulders single-handedly. Her personality is jolly and quite childish as you would expect from her appearance. She also likes to drink and loves to party with all her heart.

During the events of Immaterial and Missing Power, the people of Gensokyo were manipulated into having feasts repeatedly, one right after another, by Suika's ability to "gather" anything. She intended to draw all the other oni out of hiding with continuous, non-stop celebration. In most characters' scenarios, Suika was defeated and the number of feasts began to decrease. In Suika's scenario, she managed to defeat all of her major foes in a feast, but her plan failed anyway due to Reimu's ability and her own short-comings as an oni.

In Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, she notices that temperaments are being gathered from everyone into the sky, so she decides to climb up the Youkai Mountain to follow them. Once she reaches the heavens, she locates the perpetrator. Instead of trying to put an end to whatever plot was going on, Suika demands a living space in the heavens. She later gathers everyone to the heavens to attack Tenshi Hinanai, although whether it was to punish the celestial or just to pass the time is unclear.

Fun Facts

  • The gourd she always carries is a magical treasure of the oni, and can produce an infinite amount of sake.
  • "Suika" (if written as "西瓜" or "水瓜") can mean watermelon, a fruit the Japanese commonly enjoy in summer. Here, though, "萃香" (also pronounced "Suika") means something like "gathering fragrance". Her last name "伊吹" (Romanized: "Ibuki", Meaning: "Chinese Juniper") can sound like "the wind is blowing".
  • "Ibuki" is also the name of a mountain. They say it was a place where oni lived.
  • Suika's name is similar in appearance to that of Shuten Douji, the leader of the oni that lived on Mt. Ooeyama. As a result, some Japanese fans think she might be based somewhat on Shuten Douji. Shuten Douji is sometimes said to have been born at the foot of Mt. Ibuki.
    • 萃香 (Suika - gathering, fragrance)
    • 酒呑 (Shuuten - alcohol, drink)
  • Probably due to the fact that she hangs around the Hakurei Shrine and is friends with Yukari Yakumo, fan works pairing her with Reimu and Yukari are common, particularly from Miko Miko Suika.
  • She's popularly known for being flat-chested, being considered the flattest character by some of the fandom. It's the entire subject of the meme "つるぺったん" (Romanized: "Tsurupettan", Meaning: "Flat and Smooth") (Lyrics available here). There is also debate on whether she could use her gathering ability to give herself breasts.
  • Aya Shameimaru, who has probably seen or heard of nearly every youkai by now, once referred to Suika as "simply the most powerful youkai in Gensokyo". That doesn't mean there aren't others that could be nearly equal to her power, but she is still thought of as the strongest/most powerful youkai in Aya's opinion. Of course, this may be because she is a tengu, who were once subordinate to the oni.
  • Despite her popular image as a carefree and laid-back drunkard, she can be very observant and harshly critical of others. In Immaterial and Missing Power, she cuts down almost everyone she encounters with her dialogue, such as by calling Alice Margatroid a coward and telling Youmu Konpaku how people make fun of her. Also, in her interview with Aya, she calls out the tengu on her two-faced attitude in regards to Oni and everyone else.
  • An alternate palette of her in Touhou Hisoutensoku makes her completely gold. Could be a Guilty Gear reference

  • Suika is the only character to appear as a boss in both Shoot the Bullet and Double Spoiler.

  のである。では何故それが失敗したかというと……? それもゲーム中




Forgathering dream, illusion, and pandemonium
Suika Ibuki

Species: Oni
Location: Some hidden country occupied by oni (currently she's living somewhere in Gensokyo)
Ability: Manipulation of density

There are supposedly no oni in Gensokyo, but this girl insists that she is an oni.

Oni are generally jolly and love to drink, feast, and compete with humans in any kind of contest, from simple melee to drinking games. When they find a human that they like, they tempt that human into challenging them in any way the human desires. Should the human lose, they are abducted.

The oni find these games to be great fun, but humans don't appreciate the nature of that fun. Put simply, humans cannot compare to an oni's level of ability. Humans could enjoy themselves as much as the oni if they tried to reach the power level of their opponents, but they don't. Worse still, humans attempt to destroy the oni with underhanded tactics.

Abduction by oni used to be a symbol of human fear, which was the oni's reason for being. In a way, that fear was necessary to the human race... Yet, the humans selfishly put an end to it.

The oni, growing weary of being duped and killed repeatedly, abandoned humans for all time and moved to a place beyond human reach, or so the legend says. In any case, the oni have not been seen since.

This girl insists that she is an oni.

She is certainly jolly and loves drinking, and likes feasts so much that she has them every 3 days. The reason for that is given in-game, so I won't mention it here. But to tell the truth, she wants to restore the relationship between humans and oni. Now why did that fail...? That's also mentioned in-game, toward the end.


As mentioned above, Suika is jolly and drink loving. Innocent and simple-minded. She raises an upbeat atmosphere in a crowd, but when you're alone with her, you'll gradually become irritated by her childishness.

Her ability allows her to control density. She can gather and scatter whatever she desires. By gathering people's sentiments, they will have parties; by scattering herself, she can become as mist. The strange mist that brought about the events of Immaterial and Missing Power was none other than herself, in very thin form. Her ability does not produce some unseen power; she can gather and scatter only that which already exists, but the process occasionally transforms one thing into something completely different. It's kind of close to creation in that way. The long lost power of the oni is truly exceptional.

Her physical ability is outstanding as well; her strength, speed, and mystic power all far exceed that of a human's. Her sole weakness is her small stature, but she compensates for that in many ways. Since she loves competition against humans, she is quite tough even when she is drunk. That is to say, the more drunk she is, the tougher she becomes. Or rather, there's hardly a time when she isn't drunk.

Foregathering fantasies, and pandemonium
Suika Ibuki

Her pose is different from all the other characters' ...
I tried to make her grandiose, like a boss should be. I really brought out her liveliness.
She may not look very oni-like, but for me, chains are the mark of an oni (g)
The circle is for nothingness, which signifies diffusion; the triangle is for harmony, or collection.
The square is for permanence, and stands for the self.

The little pandemonium
Suika Ibuki

Species: oni
Ability: power to manipulate density

One of the oni who lived underground.
She spends her days above ground now, but it's not known where she lives.

She heard rumors that something was going on underground, so she tried going along with Yukari's scheme. She did think about going to see what was happening herself, but this way looked fun and was convenient, so she was pretty impressed with Yukari's technique, which let her tag along while having a drink.

Book Synopsis

Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red

Main article: Article and Interview: Suika
  • Aya realizes that the Moon has exploded late one midwinter night and goes to interview the person responsible, Suika Ibuki. Suika is drunk, but she manages to tell Aya that she did it as a threat to all those who were partying, reminding them of onis by shattering the sky, a proof of their awesome strength by splitting the sky apart so easily to blow up the Moon.
  • During the follow interview, Suika challenges Aya to a drinking match even as she asks her for sake. Aya seems to accept and invites Suika to drink with her at a nearby food cart, with hilarious results as Suika talks about silencing the poor owner. Aya then mentions her surprise at Suika and the onis being back. Suika responds that she is the only one, and she's come back only for a while. She also tells Aya how sad she is that the tengu have lost most of their influence. Suika finishes by accusing the tengu of not showing their strength and Aya ends the discussion by inviting Suika to drink about gathering news for her.
