|~ Mima, before the final battle|
Mima is an evil spirit from the Touhou Project older games who haunts the area around the Hakurei Shrine. She is very confident in her abilities, and quite boastful of them too.
Her most villainous role was carried out in Story of Eastern Wonderland, where she planned to use the power of the YinYang orb and the Hakurei clan to take revenge on mankind though it's unknown what her motivations are. She is also attempting to revive herself. Although she is called a ghost in Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream, she denies being dead and tries to explain about herself being just a "soul" instead. We may never know just what she is or how she came to be that way unless more information is revealed.
Mima generally appears as a girl with green eyes and long green hair. She wears a blue cap and a white shirt with a blue vest and a blue skirt underneath her blue capelet with a yellow ribbon. She carries a bronze staff with a golden crescent moon on its tip, and underneath her skirt between human legs and a ghost tail.

- Reimu Hakurei (Warden)
- Mima appears to have been a mentor figure of sorts to Marisa Kirisame, one of the series' main characters.
- Mima is easily the most popular PC98-exclusive Touhou character, and requests by fans to bring her back are common. ZUN has for now not acted on this, despite the fact that other PC98 characters have been brought back (such as Yuuka or Alice, though the latter was reworked as Alice Margatroid).
- Fanmade depictions of Mima tend to have her very powerful. In the fanmade game Touhou Soccer she has one of the most powerful shots: Twilight Spark.
