Kogasa Tatara is a Karakasa Obake whose sole purpose is to surprise people. However, she hasn't been very successful so far. She was once a normal umbrella in the outside world; forgotten by her owner, and no one else claimed her because the color was unpopular at the time. As time went on, the wind swept her away to Gensokyo and she became a youkai. She is currently reading up on classic ghost stories in order to improve her scaring technique.


Skill CardsEdit

  • Umbrella Wave: Kogasa swings her umbrella, releasing three energy orbs.
  • Licky Licky: The tongue on Kogasa's umbrella lashes out at the opponent.
  • Umbrella Laser: Kogasa fires a beam from the eye of her umbrella that travels the full length of the screen. Each version has Kogasa start firing at the ground below him, as she moves the beam depending on what button is pressed. The low attack version will have Kogasa stop firing when the beam is straight in front of her. The medium attack version has Kogasa stop firing at an angle. The heavy attack version will have Kogasa stop firing when the beam is pointed straight above her.
  • Umbrella Somersault: Kogasa spins forward with her umbrella streched out.
  • Umbrella Upper: Kogasa does an uppercut with her umbrella.
  • Peek a Boo Parasol: Kogasa digs her Umbrella in the ground and it pops up from underground.
  • Umbrella Shield: Kogasa spins her Umbrella around in front of herself. This move can also reflect projectiles and turn them into electric balls.
  • Umbrella Splash: Kogasa dashes (while on the ground) and pokes her enemy with her Umbrella. Each version (on the ground) has its own properties. Light version will poke directly in front of her (horizontally), Medium version will poke directly above her head (vertically, or near vertically), and Heavy version will make Kogasa dash towards her enemy and poke them with her electric wand. The air versions will just make Kogasa poke with her umbrella in the air in the following directions: Ligh version horizontally, Medium version at a 45 degree declining angle, and Heavy version straight down (or vertically).

Spell CardsEdit

  • Rain Sign "A Rainy Night's Ghost Story": Kogasa summons a large orb from her umbrella. If you let it go after the first level of charge, it releases a fireball that will bounce around the screen like a pinball. If you release it after the second level of charge, it will cause the orb to slowly descend on your opponent. The third level of charge will summon an even bigger orb that is really hard to avoid.
  • Monster Sign "A Forgotten Umbrella's Night Train": Kogasa aims for the opponent and sends three waves of trains (actually extremely dense umbrella barages thrown so fast and so close together that they appear to be a train) to attack the opponent.

Last WordEdit

  • Large Ring "Umbrella Halo": Kogasa grabs the opponent, smashing him or her with her umbrella and summons a ring of bullets for the finish. This move cannot be blocked but can only affect ground opponents.


  • Battle Intro: Kogasa's umbrella appears on stage. It then opens up, reveling Kogasa and she says "Boo! Did I scare you?"
  • Taunt: She hides under her umbrella and says "Boo!"
  • Victory Pose: Kogasa says "That was fun!" but then she notices the "Cameraman". She then runs up to the Camera and says "Surprise!"
