Youmu Konpaku (魂魄 妖夢) ist eine der seltsameren Gestalten in Gensokyo, gleichzeitig zur Hälfte Mensch und zur Hälfte Gespenst. Ihre beiden Hälften sind nicht, wie man es von einer Kreuzung erwarten würde, vermischt, sondern existieren tatsächlich in zwei getrennten Körpern. Sie lebt in Hakugyokurou in der Unterwelt und dient Yuyuko Saigyouji. Zum ersten Mal tauchte sie als Stage 5 Boss in Perfect Cherry Blossom auf. In den darauffolgenden Spielen war sie hin und wieder ein spielbarer Charakter.

In Perfect Cherry Blossom, she gathered all of Gensokyo's spring at Yuyuko's instruction, which was the reason Gensokyo's winter did not end. In Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red and Chapter 13 of Curiosities of Lotus Asia, she took on the responsibility for collecting and returning the phantoms that wandered around Gensokyo as a result of the boundary of the Netherworld being thinned.
She belongs to the subspecies of phantoms called the "half-human half-phantoms" (半人半霊 "hannin hanrei" or "hanjin hanrei"). Half-human half-phantoms are the mixed-race of phantoms and humans (幽霊と人間のハーフ), which have a largish phantom accompanying them and a relativity long life span compared to humans. The phantom that always follows them is called the "half-phantom" (半霊、半幽霊 hanrei, hanyuurei), and they are the other half of their body. In Perfect Memento in Strict Sense, it was supposed that Youmu's human half manipulates the phantom half consciously. Youmu's human half has a lower body temperature compared to normal humans, and her phantom half's body temperature is not so cold compared to normal phantoms. In the Imperishable Night manual, it was written, "she has two kinds of body: human and phantom," showing Youmu to be "human" and the phantom to be "phantom."
Half-human half-phantoms are long-lived, but in Seasonal Dream Vision, since it has still not been 60 years since the time she was born, in Phantasmagoria of Flower View, she was not very knowledgeable about the "flower incident that occurs once every 60 years."
Youmu hat eine aufrichtige und konzentrierte Persönlichkeit, welche ihre Schwertkunst unterstützt. Allerdings beißt sich ihre Persönlichkeit mit der ihrer Meisterin Yuyuko Saigyouji, die ja von einer sehr schrulligen und verspielten Natur ist. Dennoch dient sie Yuyuko so gut sie kann, indem sie den Garten von Hakugyokurou pflegt und ihre Anweisungen befolgt.
As she has a straightforward diligent personality, she is often manipulated by those around her (especially Yuyuko). For this reason, she often fails at her task, but that does not mean that she has no real power, and she particularly excels at instantaneous force and concentration power. In Immaterial and Missing Power, as literally stated by the shishou, "truth-slashing is something which you know," so she often performs tsujigiri-like moves, but Suika Ibuki pointed out that she does not think that Youmu understood her shishou's teachings.
She has strong sensitivity, and in the good ending of Imperishable Night, her human half was unable to resist the insanity-inducing effects of the true Moon, causing her to become "half-insane". Ironically enough, considering her species, she is afraid of ghost stories, dares, and darkness, but she is calm around phantoms since she is half phantom herself. In Imperishable Night's Extra. After defeating Fujiwara no Mokou, Yuyuko pretends there is a ghost under a tree, earning a terrified shriek from Youmu. Much further on in Ten Desires, as a result of being mistaken as a hermit, she temporarily mistook herself as being a hermit. Due to artworks and her sprite in the fighting spin-offs, Youmu may be ambidextrous.
Youmu is, as a gardener attached to the Saigyouji family and the bodyguard of Yuyuko Saigyouji, a swordsperson of a two-sword school of fencing.
According to the Saigyouji family, Youmu is the second generation to take her position, the former generation being Youki Konpaku. Youki was Youmu's fencing shishou. Youmu is also Yuyuko's sword instructor, but she is fundamentally treated as a gardener.
Youmu kämpft für gewöhnlich mit zwei Schwertern zugleich, was sie zum Teil von ihrem Vorgänger Youki gelernt hat. Das längere Schwert, 楼観剣 (Roukanken) - Wachturm-Schwert, kann angeblich zehn Geister auf einen Streich töten. Das kürzere Schwert, 白楼剣 (Hakurouken) - Weißer-Turm-Schwert, kann die Verwirrung einer Person durchtrennen Allerdings ist weder über ihren genauen Kampfstil noch über ihre Eltern viel bekannt. Was man weiß, ist, dass Youki, ebenfalls ein Diener Hakugyokurous, Youmu schon trainierte, seit diese sehr jung war, bis er eines Tages, verschwand. Dabei hinterließ er ihren Stil unvollendet (was sie vermutlich dazu gebracht hat, sich selbst zu unterrichten). Niemand weiß, wo er sich im Moment aufhält.
Her full name is Youmu Konpaku (魂魄 妖夢). The characters for Konpaku (魂魄) means "soul", and Youmu (妖夢) probably means "ghostly dream" in the context regarding her characteristic. Bare in mind that the "n" is an "m" sound; this is because it flows more smoothly in Japanese when it's before a "p" sound.
Although both kon (魂) and paku (魄) means "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 Youmu's ghostly half, and paku is the human half. The entire Konpaku family is comprised of half-phantom half-humans.
The kanji that makes up Youmu (妖夢) are also part of the kanji for Perfect Cherry Blossom (東方妖々夢 Touhou youyoumu).
In Phantasmagoria of Flower View, Youmu's name is written in romaji, with her surname first, during pre-battle conversation with her, even though every other character in the game with a Japanese name has their name romanized western-style, with their first names first. This is one of several typographical inconsistencies in the game (another being the inconsistent spelling of Aya Shameimaru's name).
In Perfect Cherry Blossom, Youmu has short silver hair worn in a bob cut, and bright red eyes. She wears a dark green and white dress with several ghost insignias along the edges and a ghost insignia as well on her breast pocket, and a black ribbon tied off-center in her hair. She carries the Roukanken; a long katana with a cherry blossom insignia and a flower attached to it, and the Hakurouken; a wakizashi (Short Japanese sword). Her ghostly half is a formless white phantom as large as her human self.
In every later game, Youmu has slight design alterations such as white hair in Immaterial and Missing Power, eye color changes, and lighter green on her dress. In every game after Perfect Cherry Blossom, Youmu wears short sleeves.
As of Ten Desires, Youmu's appearance stays mostly the same, the only major change being her hair arranged in a messy style.
According to ZUN, her height is "fairly short."
In Phantasmagoria of Flower View kümmerte sie sich um ihre eigenen Angelegenheiten, traf aber ständig auf verschiedene Leute, die in Hakugyokurou reinplatzten und sie der Hauptschuld am Blumenvorfall bezichtigten. Als sie selbst nach Gensokyo reiste, um das Spektakel zu betrachten, wusste sie sofort Bescheid, dachte sich aber nichts dabei. Während Scarlet Weather Rhapsody brach sie für ihre Ermittlungen auf, da sie betroffen war, wie und warum jemand Geister abschlachtete. Nach einem Hinweis von Yukari fand und besiegte sie den Schuldigen.
- Perfect Cherry Blossom
Während Perfect Cherry Blossom wurde Youmu von Yuyuko aufgetragen, so viel Frühlingsessenz wie möglich zu sammeln, um den gesamten Kirschblütengarten, den legendären Saigyou Ayakashi eingschlossen, zur perfekten Blüte zu bringen. Youmus Bestrebungen verursachten indirekt die Verlängerung des Winters in Gensokyo, was die Protagonistin letztendlich dazu veranlasst, dem Problem auf den Grund zu gehen. Youmu versuchte, die Protagonistin davon abzuhalten, Hakugyokurou zu betreten, wurde aber besiegt. Auch versuchte sie, die Konfrontation der Protagonistin mit Yuyuko zu verhindern, wurde aber wieder besiegt.
- Imperishable Night
In Imperishable Night reiste sie, mit der Absicht, den Mond zu reparieren, in die Welt der Lebenden - obwohl Yuyuko eher an einer Fresstour mit einer "Drachenspeise" als krönendem Abschluss interessiert war.
- Phantasmagoria of Flower View
In Phantasmagoria of Flower View kümmerte sie sich um ihre eigenen Angelegenheiten, traf aber ständig auf verschiedene Leute, die in Hakugyokurou reinplatzten und sie der Hauptschuld am Blumenvorfall bezichtigten. Als sie selbst nach Gensokyo reiste, um das Spektakel zu betrachten, wusste sie nicht sofort Bescheid. Erst als sie Aya Shameimaru begegnete und sie es ihr erklärte wusste sie was los war. Realizing that the incident was caused by an overabundance of spirits possessing the flowers, Youmu cut down some spirits to reduce their numbers a bit. This leads her into confrontation with Komachi Onozuka, who tells her she should not be cutting down spirits while in the world of the living because they haven't received judgement yet. Youmu protests that she's always allowed to kill phantoms while in the Netherworld, to which Komachi replies that phantoms in the Netherworld and phantoms above are two different things.
Eiki Shiki, Yamaxanadu hears about Komachi's confrontation with Youmu and comes to meet Youmu herself. She explains about the phantoms inhabiting the flowers, and that the problem will go away by itself and Youmu should leave it alone. She then goes further about how Youmu's activities in the world of the living are coming dangerously close to getting Youmu classified as living and thus subject to judgement, and decides to carry out a little judgement on Youmu beforehand.
In the end, Youmu arrives back at the Netherworld. Yuyuko was also asked by Eiki to teach Youmu more about the nature of spirits. Unfortunately, Yuyuko Saigyouji ends up misinterpreting that she's supposed to teach Youmu in a general sense, and ends up teaching Youmu how to pour delicious tea. Eiki in her storyline ends up having to elaborate and clarify her lecture to Youmu when Eiki confronts her again. Youmu's sword works on spirits by severing hesitation, which is the equivalent of helping someone reach Nirvana, and Youmu is not qualified to judge such a thing. In her winquote to Eiki, Youmu apologizes for the trouble she's caused, and thanks Eiki while saying she now understands the nature of her sword.
- Ten Desires
- Immaterial and Missing Power
- Shoot the Bullet
- Scarlet Weather Rhapsody
During the events of Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, she set off to investigate, concerned as to how and why someone was slaying spirits. After a hint from Yukari Yakumo, she found and defeated Tenshi Hinanawi.
- Hopeless Masquerade
- Impossible Spell Card
After apparently reading the newspaper by the tengu about a mischief-making amanojaku, she becomes one of the many strong youkai and humans to try and stop Seija Kijin. She uses spell cards that are considered impossible to dodge.
- Curiosities of Lotus Asia
Youmu travels out to Kourindou in search of the Soul Torch, an item given to her by Yuyuko that she had lost. Rinnosuke does in fact have it, and it turns out to be the reason for a large quantity of ghosts floating around the shop recently. Rinnosuke wasn't willing to part with it unless paid, however, so Youmu ended up shoveling the snow out of the front of the shop and off of the roof to pay for it.
Youmu's mistress, ever since Youmu was born (stated by Youmu in Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red). Youmu is completely loyal to her, but has trouble understanding her.
The friend of Youmu's mistress. Youmu respects her greatly and she helps Youmu with lessons and advice, but Youmu doesn't understand her, either. She also treats Yukari's servant, Ran Yakumo, with professional respect, even though Yuyuko says she doesn't have to.
Residents of Eientei[Bearbeiten]
As a yama, Eiki is one of the superiors of Youmu's mistress, Yuyuko. Youmu is aware of the role of the yama and respects Eiki greatly, but hadn't met her in-person until Phantasmagoria of Flower View. In Youmu's ending, Eiki also asked Yuyuko to teach Youmu more about the nature of cutting down spirits. Eiki notes if Youmu loses to her in the story mode that Youmu would normally not go to Eiki for judging upon death.
Youmu and Komachi first met in Phantasmagoria of Flower View. As a ferryman under the yama, Komachi could also be considered a fellow employee of sorts with Youmu, although their lines of work do not cross very often. Youmu is aware of Komachi's position and respects her a lot, often thanking her for her work on ferrying the dead whenever the two meet. Komachi also tries to teach Youmu about how Youmu should not cut down ghosts too often, and sees Youmu as "an interesting fellow" in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody.
- Youmu is acquainted with many other major characters (be it from their visits to the Netherworld or Youmu's own investigations), but generally not close to them personally. Being straight forward and earnest, Youmu tends to get picked on a lot.

- Der Name ihre Themes "Hiroari Shoots A Strange Bird ~ Till When?" (Hiroari schießt einen komischen Vogel ~ Bis wann), geht auf die Geschichte von Taiheiki zurück, in der ein Krieger namens Hiroari einen Youkai namens Itsumade (以津真天) erlegt.

Compared to many other characters, Youmu has relatively some fanon that deserves special mention. The usual image of Youmu is "the role of the regular person", "abused by Yuyuko", and "pressed to do regular tasks (being good at all regular tasks, despite having specified to be a gardener)". However, she still appears in many fanworks and is loved by many fans.
Many fans call Youmu "Myon", but this is partly canon since this term originates from something she has said when she asked Yuyuko Saigyouji why she is present at such a "myon" place in the Perfect Cherry Blossom extra back story. "Myon-na" is a portmanteau of "hyon-na" (unexpected) and "myou-na" (strange). Western fans more commonly use "Myon" to refer to her phantom half.
Since she's generally confined to Hakugyokurou, compared to how often she has showed up in the works, she has few definite friendship relations. Fortunately, as she has become a player character several times, in the stories of those games, she has had much experience in meeting others. She is generally paired with the following characters in fandom:
- Yuyuko Saigyouji: Self-explanatory. Master and servant banzai.
- Reisen Udongein Inaba: As they're both worldly-wise people in fanon, they're a duo with the common trait of being servants. In the fifth stage of Imperishable Night, she felt a little sympathy with Reisen. Other than that, in the ending of Imperishable Night, as her eyes became like Reisen's red eyes of insanity, there was a scene where she received a medical examination.
- Sakuya Izayoi: In fanworks, they're connected by battle as they both fight with edged tools. In this case, Sakuya's perfectly elegant style is contrasted with the half-human Youmu full of feelings of adoration and envy. They're also comrades as they are both servants. Youmu also sometimes addresses Sakuya as "Onee-sama", a title usually used to refer respectfully to an older sister or to an older woman one respects or admires.
- Jojo association
Youmu frequently gets crossed over with Jean-Pierre Polnareff from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series. He's a fast-moving sword stand-user. This is even present in Touhou Hisoutensoku, where one of her alternate palettes turns her completely silver, a subtle reference to Polnareff's stand Silver Chariot. One of her spell cards has her assault her opponent with multiple copies of herself, just like one of Polnareff's supers in the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game. Both Sakuya and Youmu can be seen in the style of "gold&silver" due to these palettes.
- League of Legends Item Reference
In the American multiplayer game League of Legends, there's a reference to Youmu where there's an item called "Youmuu's Ghostblade" which fits with Youmu since it shares her name, she is a half ghost and uses a blade for her attack. It's design clearly shows a katana with cherry blossoms around it, making it a possible reference to Youmu's Roukanken. Another reference to Youmu in League of Legends is the New champion Orianna: Her "pet" ball is referring to Youmu and her ghost half.
- Portrait style changes
Since ZUN's drawing style changes a lot in each work, she has been called "Youyoumu Youmu" (妖々夢妖夢), or "YYY" for short, from Perfect Cherry Blossom and "The face that knew men" (男を知った顔) from Ten Desires. With the latter, Japanese fans have noticed that her portrait makes her look cuter, charming and youthful compared to her portraits in previous games, with notable emphasis placed on her hairstyle change. For some reason, some fans have taken this as a sign that Youmu may have made a boyfriend, speculating that she's made efforts to better take care of her appearance as a result. This resulted in "男を知った顔" becoming a nickname for her Ten Desires drawing. Reactions have ranged from agreeance to complete outrage.
- Phantom half abuse: Youmu's phantom half often receives terrible treatment in canon (for example, in Touhou Hisoutensoku, upon losing to Sanae Kochiya, Sanae asks her how "the marshmallow looking-like thing" tastes). In fanon, Yuyuko is frequently seen abusing it, sometimes treating it as food or as a useful object.
