テーマ曲:

{{{テーマ曲}}}


An often seen and referenced character, Yukari is the youkai of boundaries. She was first introduced in Perfect Cherry Blossom as the sleepy mistress of Ran. During Imperishable Night Yukari teams up with Reimu to find those responsible for the fake moon. In Immaterial and Missing Power she actually sings her way from battle to battle stealing everyone's sake, wine, and brandy. Even right from the shrine's altar... however, this is all part of her strategy to save the day. Somehow.

Over a thousand years ago, Yukari organized an army of youkai and led them in an invasion of the Moon. The youkai were subsequently routed by the Lunarians, who possessed superior technology and magic, and forced to retreat to Earth. Since that time, no youkai have attempted to expand their territory beyond Gensokyo. While some speculate that Yukari organized the invasion out of selfish hunger for territory and power, others believe she did it to teach the youkai a lesson about starting wars of conquest; namely, that it was a bad idea.

About a thousand years ago, Yukari met and became friends with a human girl named Yuyuko. After Yuyuko died, Yukari continued to be friends with Yuyuko's ghost, although Yuyuko gradually forgot who she had been and why she had died. When Yuyuko requested that Yukari use her power to weaken the border between the Netherworld and Gensokyo, Yukari obliged. She knew Yuyuko's plan to make the Saigyou Ayakashi bloom could never succeed, but was too busy sleeping to say or do anything about it, or to put the border back to normal after everything was finished, which put her on a collision course with the heroines.

Yukari is known for being a very youkai-like youkai who sleeps all day and lives for the enjoyment of life. Though she rarely leaves her house she's well-connected and is acquainted with most of the most powerful youkai (such as Suika and Yuyuko) as well as anyone having anything to do with the Hakurei border or outside world (Reimu and Rinnosuke). She's possibly the most powerful youkai in Gensokyo and has a tendency to toy with her opponents rather than use her full power from the start. If anyone is suited for the role of "mastermind" it's Yukari, and she often has a great deal of insight and understanding about whatever happens in Gensokyo, and possesses considerable intellectual prowess, as well. Though she seems flaky and unreliable most of the time, when the safety or security of Gensokyo is at stake, she won't hesitate to get involved, even if it means using others to do the work for her. For example, in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, she treats Tenshi Hinanai with much hostility after finding out the plot of the Heavens. She could easily be either a villain or a heroine, depending on her whims.

Fun Facts編集

  • The characters for Yakumo literally mean "eight clouds" (but can also mean "countless clouds"), and Yukari "violet". All of the Yakumo family are named after colors. The light frequencies (energies) of the colors are proportional to their powers: Chen (orange) << Ran (indigo) < Yukari (violet). The energy of violet light is the highest in the visible spectrum, and violet light is the boundary between visible and invisible light. Red light (the symbolic color of Remilia Scarlet or Reimu Hakurei) is another boundary, but they are stronger than Chen. Fittingly, when Reimu and Yukari team up in Imperishable Night, they are called the "Boundary Team". In addition to maintaining the Hakurei Barrier, their colors form the two boundaries between visible and invisible light. In addition, the word "yukari" is uncommonly used to mean "border" or "edge", albeit with a different character.
  • "Yakumo" also comes from the first ancient poem written in what would become the Japanese "Tanka" form:
Yakumo tatsu / Izumo yagegaki / Tsuma-gomini / Yaegaki tsukuro / Sono yaegaki wo
Definitely in keeping with the character's origin/age in the storyline. The translation into English is: "Eightfold rising :clouds/ Build an eightfold fence / An eightfold Izumo fence / Wherein to keep my bride-- / Oh! splendid eightfold fence."  :This poem was attributed to the god Susanoo. Interpretations vary as to the meaning of the poem.
  • Yukari's name is thoroughly analyzed in chapter 25 of Curiosities of Lotus Asia by Rinnosuke. However, Rinnosuke implies at the end that there may be even more meanings hidden in it. Chapter 25 of Curiosities of Lotus Asia also reveals that Yukari Yakumo gave herself that name.
Th022

Spell Card 222

  • Occasionally, double rainbows form after rainfall—there's the rainbow one usually sees (red on the top, and violet at the bottom), and another, larger, fainter one above it. The colors on the second rainbow are reversed—red on the bottom, and violet at the top. In other words, the outside edges of the rainbow are violet—or, put another way, violet forms the boundary between the sky and the rainbow. Thus, Yukari's given name strongly signifies the idea of boundaries.
  • When Rinnosuke had an iPod in his shop, only Yukari knew how to actually use it, and further knew that it was considered a trendy item in the outer world. She similarly knew about the Nintendo Game Boy and DS. (source: Curiosities of Lotus Asia #11 and #11.5, respectively.)
  • Because of her understanding of technology from the outside world, there are rumours that she lives in the outside world from time to time.
  • Marisa once stated that Yukari uses a small box to talk to her shikigami when they are far away from her, which led Rinnosuke to believe that she owns a cell phone (at least two, really).
  • Popular fan-nicknames for Yukari include "Sukima" ("gap"), "Yukarin" (a contraction of "Yukari-chan"), and "Babaa" (roughly, "old hag"). This latter is because she is known as one of the oldest youkai in Gensokyo. 
  • In some fanworks, Yukari insists on being 17 years old. Usage in fanworks is possibly a parody of Kikuko Inoue, who claims that she is 17 years old despite being way over that age. Musou Kakyou: A Summer Day's Dream casts Kikuko Inoue as the narrator (probably Yukari), in a nod to this in-joke.
  • The outfit Yukari wears in IaMP, IN, and SWR has two groups of solid/broken lines called trigrams on the front. A solid line represents Yang and a broken line is Yin. The top trigram (テンプレート:Lang) is "dui" or "tui" (open) and is associated with west and water. The bottom trigram (テンプレート:Lang) is "kūn" (field) and is associated with southwest and earth, as well as Wikipedia:Yoni Yoni (divine passage). The two trigrams together in that order form the hexagram for "clustering," "gathering together," and "finished." Sounds more fitting for Suika in a way...
  • More on the hexagram, the hexagram "Ts'ui" formed by the combination of "tui" and "kun" results in a meaning of gathering together to persevere towards a destination. This hexagram signifies also great wisdom which is necessary for leadership when directing an assembly together to create overall prosperity for everyone (for example a ruler). Yukari herself can be seen as an overseer of Gensokyo. Her ability to create borders would definitely give her the ability to bring everyone together (perhaps by force) while maintaining the harmony of the "created" world. Maybe this design was a critique on her abilities?
  • For some reason, Yukari's appearance in spell card 222 in Imperishable Night, is different from other characters. Instead of using the new image in Imperishable Night, a modified image from Perfect Cherry Blossom is used (she has blue ribbons instead). What is more strange is that the background used in the spellcard, which is also from PCB, uses Yukari's original cut-in image with red ribbons. Yukari's sprite in StB also sports blue ribbons.
  • There are several running gags involving her in fan works. One plays on the fact that she sleeps a lot and leaves most of her work to her shikigami Ran. Another plays on her relatively old age compared to most of the characters in Gensokyo, with other characters calling her "old hag".
  • Although not expressly stated, Yukari is commonly considered one of the most powerful—if not the most powerful—youkai in Gensokyo, although a few other youkai like Yuka Kazami and Suika Ibuki have been considered to be around her level. However, she might still lose spellcard battles to humans or youkai.
  • Yukari is sometimes seen riding on top of a train in fan-made videos, likely due to her most powerful spellcard in SWR and Touhou Hisoutensoku, in which she summons a train to run over her opponent.
  • Yukari is associated with Maribel (see Maribel's page for details), although their exact relationship, if any, is unknown.
  • She is the only Phantasm boss in the series.

Mastermind behind the spiriting away
Yukari Yakumo

The youkai of boundaries, who awakens at spring.
Her main ability allows her to manipulate boundaries of all sorts.

She and Yuyuko have known each other for a long time, but Yukari is not a ghost. She lives in the remotest place in Gensokyo. Her lifestyle involves a lot of staring at the Hakurei Border.

When humans from the outer world wander into Gensokyo, it's all thanks to fluctuations in the boundary caused by Yukari. There is an enchanting element about the phenomenon which people like to call "Spirited Away"; if it is ever discovered that spiriting away is not the work of gods, but the meddling of a youkai girl, the term will lose all of its mystique.

Yukari usually doesn't act on her own, preferring instead to have Ran handle the details of daily life. But, since she is almost always asleep, she has no idea what Ran does while she sleeps.

When she heard that Ran had been defeated by someone, she became mildly surprised before going back to sleep.

After waking up from her nap, she finally noticed that spring had graced her place of residence. The truth is that spring had been around for the past 10 days, but she forgot it whenever she went to bed and woke up just as surprised the next time.

She couldn't sleep carelessly until Ran fully recovered, but she opted to sleep on the problem.

The next time she woke up, she received a request from Yuyuko asking her to restore the boundary between the world of the living and the world of the dead. It was a ridiculous request since Yuyuko was the one who weakened it to begin with, so Yukari rubbed the sleep from her eyes and set out for repairs.

It had been quite a while since Yukari's last visit to the Netherworld, and she was curious to see that it was bustling with excitement. She thought the Saigyouji family were more quiet, laid-back folk, but she shrugged and decided Yuyuko had just had a change in taste.

She met the gardener, Youmu, along the way and heard about the situation. Youmu admitted that they seemed to be in quite a mess, but it sounded like well-earned punishment to Yukari.

Everyone always seemed to be bent out of shape about that youkai cherry tree, and nothing else. Surely, it had drained the spirit from too many human lives. Yukari knew it was dangerous. However, she realized there was nothing she could do about it.

Yukari had known Yuyuko since before her death. She also knew that it was not Yuyuko who was sealed by the Saigyou Ayakashi...

... but that it was Yuyuko's body that was sealing the Saigyou Ayakashi.

  • Border of Phantasm

Yukari Yakumo

Species: Youkai
Location: Unknown
Ability: Manipulation of boundaries

A youkai living in Gensokyo. As these letters (妖怪) tell, she is dubious and suspicious. It's said that she lives in a mansion located at the edge of Gensokyo, but nobody knows where it really is. For some reason she knows a lot about the outside world too.
That makes her very suspicious.

Her personality is hardly understandable, but everyone agrees that it's not something pleasant. Many people don't want to meet her, if possible. Usually, only Reimu bothers to deal with her.

Her fighting style is completely different from a human's measure. It's neither fast nor heavy-hitting. It is uncertain whether she is really tough or not. Her attitude makes you think as if you're being teased by her, which is really irritating even if you manage to defeat her.

However, no one can match her in sincerely caring about Gensokyo, and loving it with all her heart.

Youkai of Boundaries, Yukari Yakumo

A youkai living at the edge of Gensokyo.
Her ability allows her to manipulate boundaries. It is uncertain how long she has been alive, but her existence at least predates the history of Gensokyo itself.
Her personality is hard to understand; unlike other long-lived entities, she displays none of the bitterness commonly associated with old age. She is difficult to approach, but that's due more to her deviousness than any uneasy feeling that people may have around her.
She owns one shikigami, and lets her shikigami do all her daily chores for her. Yukari herself always leads an easy life. From that shikigami's perspective, it's like her master is holding her hostage, so it's quite maddening.
The danger and potency of the power to manipulate boundaries is beyond imagination. It's something that can only be controlled by those who are able to withstand its stress, or some weirdo youkai like Yukari.

A shikigami is a potent weapon. Yukari treats hers like an item.

Notes
She teams up with Reimu this time.
Normal speed only applies when she's used as a solo character.
As in daily life, she leaves all the work to her shikigami. Once locked on to a target, her shikigami pursues and attacks it until either Yukari stops shooting or the target falls.
Be aware that you must move in front of an enemy to acquire a target lock.
Recommended for players who believe that a laid-back life is best.

Youkai that lurks in the boundary
Yukari Yakumo

Species: Youkai
Ability: Manipulation of boundaries

She lives somewhere on the boundary between Gensokyo and the outer world. Since most people can't see the border, no one is certain exactly where she lives. They know only that she does not live near the Hakurei Shrine, which is also located on the boundary.

She is one of the oldest beings in Gensokyo and has the power to prove it. Gensokyo's origins have been long forgotten by humans and even most youkai, but it seems that she still remembers some part of it. She is often described as devious; that's mainly because she doesn't think like a human, so others find her actions quite difficult to comprehend. She easily has enough power to annihilate all of Gensokyo if she so desires, so it's probably a good thing that she is somewhat weird...

A youkai who comes and goes where she pleases; no-one ever seems to know where she is.
This time, she's made yin-yang orbs that let you talk to her.

Since the underground youkai have built up a society separate from that of the youkai above ground, she doesn't seem to want to interfere. The sudden appearance of the evil spirits puzzled her. She didn't want it to turn into some major event, so she sent Reimu, who had relatively little influence on things, to investigate.

Book Synopsis編集

Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red編集

Main article: Article and Interview: Yukari

After hearing a fox's cry, Aya Shameimaru went to investigate. She found Yukari beating Ran Yakumo over the head with an umbrella, which Yukari claimed was only for disciplining her. Because Aya is a crow tengu, she feels animal rights are important and was upset by Yukari's "animal abuse."

During the interview Yukari insisted that it was not animal abuse because Ran is a shikigami, which Yukari considered to make her no longer count as being an animal. Yukari explained that as long as a shikigami follows its master's will then it will be as strong as its master. Ran had apparently disobeyed Yukari by doing something she hadn't been ordered to do. Because of that Ran wasn't as strong as she could be and ended up putting herself in danger while relying only on her own strength. This discipline was meant to remind Ran just who her master is so that Ran won't needlessly be in danger by fighting at less than full strength. Aya didn't think that excused it at all.

Yukari also called the Bunbunmaru Newspaper a shoddy paper and offered to make Aya her shikigami too, which Aya refused.

Perfect Memento in Strict Sense編集

PMiSS yukari
Main article: Perfect Memento: Yukari Yakumo
  • Although Yukari's appearance is identical to a human she is not one, does not think like one, and cannot be expected to be friendly toward humans.

  • Her house is supposed to be on the Hakurei Border but no one knows exactly where, or if it's even in Gensokyo at all.
  • Yukari sleeps so much that much of her work is left to her shikigami Ran Yakumo instead.
  • Yukari's power to manipulate boundaries gives her power over all sorts of things and is comparable to the powers of the gods.
