Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil/Cirno

From The Danmaku Gameplay Wiki

Non-Spell #1[edit | edit source]

Cirno's first non-spell.

Description[edit | edit source]

The first part of non-spell 1 consists of Cirno shooting 3 triangles of icicles aimed directly at the player, one after the other, all covering a larger portion of the screen and becoming less dense than the previous one, all while shooting rings of bullets which are also aimed towards the player.

On the second part of her attack, she will start moving, shooting icicle rings, all redirected and aimed directly at the player, all while continuing to shoot rings of bullets still aiming at the player. Afterwards she will move back to the middle and repeat the cycle.

The first part of the non-spell can either be dodged by macroing the triangles or by microing through it. Because of the density of the first triangle, it is recommended to start with a macro by misdirecting it to the side and going back to the middle, then the last 2 triangles should be easier to micro as the rings of bullet Cirno shoots on higher difficulties usually prevents the player from misdirecting the following triangles. Microing through the triangles only requires a micro tap to the side, though the rings of bullets cirno shoots should still be paid attention to as some of them are not aligned perfectly when aimed at the player, resulting in the player ramming a bullet by accident.

The second part of the non-spell can simply be dodged by streaming towards one direction, or by restreaming if necessary.

Headsit Strategy[edit | edit source]

It is possible to use a safespot to skip the entire first half of the Non-Spell by sitting close to Cirno's head before she starts shooting. After she finished shooting the 3 icicle triangles, make sure to move back to the bottom of the screen for the second half of her non-spell.

If damage is optimized, the non-spell should end before the second wave.

For most shot-types, shooting unfocused inside the safespot deals much more damage than staying focused as the character's option are closer to Cirno's hitbox than if they were focused.

It is recommended to lineup the safespot during pre-boss dialogue to have as much time as possible.

Headsit HUD Lineup Strategy[edit | edit source]

Another way to lineup the headsit is to focus and use the character's options to align with the top of the 最高得点 (High score) text, then move horizontally back to Cirno's position and you should be perfectly aligned for the safespot. The benefit of this lineup is that both Reimu and Marisa's options are the same size and at the same distance of the player's hitbox, making the lineup consistent for both characters.
