Fun Facts

  • Youki's name consists of two kanji: You (妖) as in "youkai", and Ki (忌) which mean "inauspicious" or "taboo".
  • The characters for Konpaku mean simply "Soul."
  • Although both "Kon" (魂) and "Paku" (魄) are "soul", their elements are different. "Kon" stands for a mental soul, which is separated from a body as soon as human dies and ascends to Heaven; "Paku" is a physical soul, which remains in the body a few days and goes back to the Earth. In this case, "Kon" is Youki's phantom half, and "Paku" is human half. Maybe "Konpaku" is not only be a surname but a feature of his race.
  • Youki is one of a few male characters in the entire Touhou series, as most are all female.
