PCB's character .txt says Youmu's two swords are "長刀「楼観剣（ろうかんけん）」" and "短剣「白楼剣（はくろうけん）」" -- as far as I can tell, that's a longsword (choutou) Roukanken and a short sword (tanken) Hakurouken.

>*Some Western fanfic writers portray Myon as being able to take on the shape of a ghostly duplicate of Youmu, although this depiction is rare among Japanese fanartists.
Portraying a character the same way as she is portrayed in the actually (canon) game hardly counts as a fun fact, not?

This is a minor point, but does Youmu actually specialise in Swordsmanship Mastery, as in the mastery of all practises that may generally be considered a form of swordsmanship? That kind of mastery strikes me as a bit odd, but I suppose it's not beyond someone living in Gensokyo.
Well, I'm not really sure myself. Whatever 剣術を扱う程度の能力 means, I guess. Excite gives me "Ability of extent in which fencing is treated". That's not too helpful. Would you have a suggestion for specialization of Japanese swords in particular?

Well, since no one was gonna do it, I did. :p

GR deals with gravity's effects on curving spacetime. SR deals with stuff moving very fast, time dilation, length contraction and the like.

I just find out the Youmu's eye color in Impersihable Night (Last Word) Change to red just like at PCB. It seems she got a sore eyes due to seeing the Moon. -220.127.116.11 10:32, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
I noticed that she's the only one that was affected by the full moon, yet no one has added it in her page...perhaps she's not as powerful as thought to be...--18.104.22.168 00:25, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
Editted out the special relatively stuff and the Kaiden istake
I deleted the bit about time slowing down for her when she does some of her attacks, grimoir of marisa says it's because of concentration and not speed. And the calculations where it put youmu at hypersonic is in Kaidan #3 not Kaidan #2.
Excuse me, but where in fanon or canon did she get the alternate spelling "Kompaku"? Fairy Maid 18:55, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
- It hasn't been used officially as far as I know, and I doubt that it's used much otherwise. "ん" is transliterated as "m" before B, M, and P in Traditional Hepburn (hence Asahi Shimbun), but it's not done much now. --TheSinnerChrono 01:59, January 13, 2010 (UTC)
- I remember "Kompaku" hasn't been used in canon, so it's not proper to list it in the item "alternate spelling". It must be because most Japanese assume one letter indicates one sound, despite the fact, for example, that the "ん" sound really consists of 5 diverse sounds. But, as mentioned below by TheSinnerChrono, that spelling should be consistent for Hepburn style.
Item from online game which may inspired by Youmu?
Speculation, There is an item called Youmuu's Ghostblade, still in beta area before apply to public game, in game called league of legends.
One of the characters also have Haruhi's dance dance animation. So this item may inspired by Touhou.
