Touhou Project

Hong Meiling is the gatekeeper to the Scarlet Devil Mansion from Touhou Project. She first appeared as the Stage 3 Boss of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.

Although she is a youkai, Meiling does not show any aggression toward humans unless they are trying to trespass into the Scarlet Devil Mansion, instead preferring to engage in friendly chat with them. She is very laid-back and often takes naps on the job, which often gets her into trouble. While her mastery of martial arts and ability to use Qi leaves her with no weak points, she isn't particularly that powerful among most youkai, either. During the events of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, she fulfills her guard duty by attacking the player character as they try to enter the Scarlet Devil Mansion by force.

In M.U.G.E.N, Hong Meiling has been made many times by Kohaku, RicePigeon, and other creators.

A combination of various elements from Touhou Hisoutensoku and a custom gameplay system, this Meiling retains her signature melee-proficiency and rushdown traits from the former while gaining an expanded set of combos from the latter. Meiling may not pose much of an offensive threat from a distance, but woe befall anyone who thinks that she can be easily locked down with a few projectiles, as she has several ways to deal with them.


RicePigeon's fourth version


While she may resemble RicePigeon's third version of Meiling with Incident Zero mechanics at first glance, and is certainly capable of the same rushdown style gameplay, this incarnation of Meiling introduces a stance change mechanic, bringing a whole new second side to her that is more technical in nature. Being able to bring a harmonious balance between her Yin and Yang stances effectively is key to getting the most out of Meiling.
