Touhou Fuhai (東方 不敗, Tōhō Fuhai) is the great-great grandfather of Fang Fang Huang and Ling Ling Huang, and one of the Three Dark Lords. Moka Akashiya and the rest of the Newspaper Club travel to China and seek him out so that he may repair the Rosario Cross around Moka's neck. He is also a old friend of Moka's mother Akasha Bloodriver and a self-proclaimed 2D Otaku.
His name literally means "Undefeated of the East" in Japanese and Chinese.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Touhou Fuhai's true form is that of a younger and taller bishonen version of himself with long black hair. However, he normally keeps himself in the form of a small old man, which aids in suppressing his energy as much as possible to preserve what little life he has left. In his true form he wears a white, bell-sleeved robe with a more decorated black robe beneath. He has black shoes and a tattoo on his chest that appears to be a sun.
Personality[edit | edit source]
In the manga, Touhou Fuhai is said to be the most sensitive out of the three Dark Lords, as well as the easiest to anger compared to the kind Akasha and fairly relaxed Mikogami, and has an attraction to 2D manga, particularly the female characters. Like Gin, he is somewhat a pervert, he was even willing to make a joke about Akua's lack of "womanly development" since seven years ago during the middle of a fight with her. He seems not to tolerate disrespect and insolence well, and said himself that he is very impatient.
He is very insightful, taking notice of the situations he is placed in and responding accordingly without needing much time to think it over, and also fairly manipulative, as he was able to get Inner Moka to cosplay for him with the latter skill. his insight also makes him highly adaptive and a very cunning and tricky opponent for people he's already seen fighting in the past, having seen Issa's techniques over half a century before, he is now perfectly capable of dealing with the Shuzen Head Vampire without much effort, though later "Issa" turned out to be a doppleganger who was much weaker than the real Issa Shuzen. Indeed, immediately after seeing Akua in battle he began formulating ways to defeat her and even taught them to Tsukune within a month, showing that he's as good a teacher as he is a learner.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
- Chinese Jian: During the repair of Moka's Rosario Cross, Touhou Fuhai had used a Chinese long sword with a talisman connected to the blade to initiate the examination of the seal's damage.
- Talismans: During the more intricate procedures of black arts, Touhou Fuhai would use chinese talismans to cross-examine seals before making the repairs.
- Pipe: When he first started training Tsukune, Touhou Fuhai would use his smoking pipe as a makeshift weapon to thrash around Tsukune during their initial spar.
- Acupuncture Needles: When he began the Human Modification Technique on Tsukune, Touhou Fuhai used 109 needles imbued with his Yoki in order to reconstruct the human's body allowing him to use youjutsu techniques.
Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]
Powers[edit | edit source]
Yasha Physiology: As a yasha Touhou Fuhai possesses standard powers amongst his kind but as one of the Three Dark Lords, his powers are much more advanced and possess a far greater degree of effect. These are some of his powers:
- Immense Demonic Aura: As one of the Three Dark Lords, Touhou Fuhai possesses an enormous amount of yōki in which he released a great portion of it when Akua angered him. When Akua said she could defeat him, Touhou Fuhai was greatly angered by her insolence and brought the girl to her knees with his youki alone.
- Transformation: Touhou usually stays within a elder form in order to preserve the amount of power he still has left in his life but when the situation calls for it he can transform into his younger self to release his true power.
- Immense Strength: Even in his elder form, Touhou possesses great strength being able to easily thrash Tsukune around during their training with simple attacks. During his final battle against Alucard with Mikogami and Sun Touhou was able to pressure the giant vampire along with the former two and his attacks possesses enough strength to tear apart Alucard's limbs and body within his original youthful form.
- Immense Speed: Before Tsukune became a modified human and during their initial training, Touhou in his elder form was able to easily dodge all of the former's attacks and swiftly retaliated with Tsukune barely able to react at all. When fighting against the doppelganger of Issa, Touhou was able to teleport directly behind the latter and unleashed a powerful Jigen-Tou before he could react despite the distance between the two being mere inches. During his final battle with Alucard, Touhou in his true form was able to land many strikes on the gigantic vampire in tandem with Mikogami and Sun with Alucard not able to react until he regenerated.
- Immense Durability: Touhou Fuhai possesses incredible durability, in his elder form even with his energy depleted and thus weakened he was able to survive a yoki-enhanced punch from Tsukune in his Jet Black Monster Form after the latter's Shinso blood gone out of control. Though Touhou was temporarily incapacitated and needed time to recover he did so with no lasting damage at all. Later even after being struck at point-blank range and blowed away by Miyabi Fujisaki (a clone of Alucard's original human form), he recovered just in time to cast soap opera to save Tsukune, Moka, Fang-Fang, Yukari, and Ruby after the Floating Garden crashed into the human world.
- Immense Agility: During his final battle with Alucard, Touhou was able to leap upon multiple skyscrapers without losing any control.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Touhou Fuhai is known to possess immense knowledge and fighting prowess. When he fought Akua Shuzen he was able to go toe-to-toe with her without using his true power when she herself was. Touhou Fuhai is even able to easily pressure and defeat the 2nd Sub-Division Leader of Fairy Tale who had duplicated Issa Shuzen's powers (albeit Touhou himself admitted that the real Issa Shuzen was much more powerful) whilst declaring that he had he seen through all of Issa's fighting style 50 years ago.
Medical Master: During the process of the Human Modification Technique on Tsukune Aono, Touhou Fuhai demonstrated intricate and thorough knowledge of the human anatomy that allowed him accurately pierce Tsukune's body with 109 acupuncture needles imbued with Yoki. The Dark Lord was able to do this quite effortlessly even when he was jumping around Tsukune thus showing incredible precision with acupuncture. When Tsukune was distracted by Kurumu he proceeded to accurately pierce the latter's heart with the last needle without killing him despite claiming that the last one was the most dangerous of all which indicates that Touhou Fuhai may have some expertise in chinese medical acupuncture.
Black Arts Master: Touhou Fuhai is said to be the most powerful black arts practitioner in the world being able to cast powerful spells in sealing and barriers. A testament to his prowess in black arts is that he taught fellow Dark Lord Tenmei Mikogami all that he knows of black arts. The newspaper club also sought his help in repairing Moka's rosario when the damage was beyond Mikogami's capabilities which he detected within a single glance and proceeded repair in an instant during Akua's attack without anyone noticing.
Yojutsu Master: Touhou Fuhai is also well versed in demon arts as he invented many of his personal techniques one of which is the ultimate blade known the Hougetsu Jigen-Tou which Akua Shuzen sought to learn in order to defeat Akasha. Though he commented that he was impressed by her use in the Jigen-tou (in which he notted that she had mastered it as if it was her own technique) but was still nowhere close to his level of mastery. He even invented a counter technique made specifically for the Jigen-Tou that both Akua and Tsukune had remarked that he is a genius. His youjutsu prowess is shown in his ability to train Tsukune to become a powerful youjutsu practitioner in a month after modifying the latter into a modified human enough to stand up against Akua Shuzen on his own for some time.
Master Summoner: As a yasha, Touhou Fuhai has the ability to summon creatures to fight on his behalf with many recognizing his talents for it that they expected Fang-Fang to inherit this talent in summoning.
Techniques[edit | edit source]
Youjutsu Techniques:[edit | edit source]
- Jigen-Tou: Touhou Fuhai is able to use Jigen-Tou at a higher level than Akua. He can make the Jigen-Tou go farther distances than just at his hand. When attacking the opponent, there is no resistance like Touhou explained. When Touhou uses the Jigen-Tou it can be used at long distances to defeat the opponent. This is the technique Touhou is known for along with his dimensional barriers.
- Energy Beam: Touhou uses this technique against Fake Issa as during their fight, during which the technique was able to pressure the doppelganer without much effort on the user's side. Touhou was shown to shoot 3 of these beams at the same time and also use it as one huge beam. It seems to have the same properties as Jigen-Tou as Fake Issa is seen using a technique to block the beams rather than taking on a blow. Touhou also uses a similar hand motion like he does for Jigen-Tou.
- Touhou Fuhai Style Bakuryuujin: Touhou taught Tsukune this technique stated when Tsukune says "Touhou Fuhai Style". It is an anti-air youjutsu.
- Flying Carpet: One of Touhou's demon arts. Enables flight in the sky on a magic carpet.
- Teleportation: In the battle against the Fake Issa Touhou made some sort of portal and attacked him from behind.
- Touhou Fuhai Style Muei Tou: Another technique Touhou taught Tsukune. A defense against Jigen-Tou.
- Barriers/Dimensions: Touhou is able to create Dimensions/Barriers to protect people. In the chapter where Tsukune transforms into a ghoul Touhou uses a barrier to protect everyone else while fighting Tsukune in the barrier. The barrier has offensive capabilities since Touhou said it was meant to kill whoever went into or went out of the barrier. Kurumu was somehow able to get past the barrier even though he stated that.
- Yoki Enhanced Needles: Touhou seems to specialize in needles when throwing them offensively or for his human modification technique.
- Human Modification Technique: This technique is one where Touhou inserts needles into a body and reconstructs it so the body can use yōkai techniques. The chances of the human modification technique working is very low and if it fails the owner of the body being reconstructed will die. The needles work in the way that when inserted it outs threads of energy into the body and these threads of energy sews and reconstruct cells which forms a channel that amplifies the energy which is the source of youjutsu inside the body. The more needles put into the body the more painful the human modification technique will become.
- Soap Opera: One of Touhou's spells that allows the target to float in midair inside a soap bubble.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- (To Gyokuro) "However, the rosary isn't linked to Alucard. It's linked to the Akasha sleeping inside Alucard. The rosary was originally created by a mother as a means of protecting her daughter on her travels... So that they could still be connected even if their bodies were separate. That this connection would still remain even after the mother's unfortunate end against a monster is the truth behind the rosary..."
- (To Gyokuro) "A mother's love is a mighty thing... She's probably lost all of her senses after fusing with Alucard, yet Akasha still responds to the wishes of the rosary through Alucard's body. You have confused Akasha's responses with the ability to conquer Alucard. That is why who've been rejected, Gyokuro. What mother's love would bring her to kill her own daughter?"

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- He is not related to the Video game series Touhou Project.
- Tōhōfuhai is the Japanese translation of Dongfang Bubai (东方不败), a fictional character and antagonist in the wuxia novel The Smiling, Proud Wanderer (笑傲江湖）by Jin Yong, who also used needles as his primary weapon, and Touhuo's true form as a long haired bishonen male can lay partial inspiration to Dongfang Bubai's description as "neither a man nor a woman", a eunuch who became enraptured with bringing out his feminine side.
- Touhou Fuhai's fury over disrespect is very understandable. As has been demonstrated in countless Oriental tales and movies with Chinese/Japanese characters, disrespect or challenging one's honor are taken personal and seriously.
- Before enlightening Gyokuro and Inner Moka about the truth of Moka's Rosario, Touhou Fuhai had defeated Fairy Tale's 2nd subdivision commander, who wasn't actually Issa Shuzen, but a doppelganger (In non-speech bubble talk, he mentioned that the real Issa Shuzen was far more powerful).
- Tohou Fuhai is very durable despite his age, when Alucard's clone, masquerading as the Masked King, attacked him, despite being bleeding from the strike, he still warned Moka and Tsukune about the threat before them.
- Touhou Fuhai clearly remembers Alucard's human form very well, as he recognized his clone upon him unveiling his visage, indicating that he never forgot the face of such an evil villain.
- For the final battle against Alucard, after Tenmei Mikogami reverted to his Kishin form, he bid Touhou Fuhai join his as this place would become their grave. Fuhai then reverted to his true form and stated that he and Mikogami shared an Ill-Fated relationship. (The ill-fated relationship reflected the mini Kishin encyclopedia remark that Kishin and Yaksha served alongside each other, like front line warriors.)
- When Tsukune and friends first met Touhou Fuhai, they simply seemed flabbergasted at his looks, so he took no offense. As such, while he is sensitive, he doesn't have a hair-trigger temper.
- After Touhou Fuhai told Tsukune and friends that the Rosario's repairs would keep Moka safe and he gloated about infuriating Akua, Mizore (in the English translation) said "I can't tell if this guy is amazing...or a total dork."
