Defeat me? How foolish!! A shrine maiden is nothing more than a dog of the gods.
~ Shinki
Shinki is a goddess from the older Touhou series of videogames and the creator of Makai, a world of demons whose entrance is located near the Hakurei Shrine in a mountain cave. She's also the final boss of the fifth videogame of the old-age, Touhou Mystic Square.

During the events of Mystic Square, she allowed a tourist agency in Makai to organize trips for the demons from there to the human world of Gensokyo. While she is not really evil, her actions are the reason why various heroines, like former villainess Mima, went to Makai to put an end to this intrusion, trying to defeat Shinki.

Shinki's personal relationship is with her head maid, Yumeko, and she rules over Makai from her palace of Pandaemonium. Her name translates to "beautiful god."


Shinki is a female human-like goddess with white hair and light blue eyes. She also wears red robes, with a lighter red robe worn underneath a standard red one. In battle, she sprouts three pairs of white wings, which later turn purple with red markings.
