Fandom/Evanescent Existence

From Len'en Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This sub-article lists unofficial content associated to characters and other stuff that originally appeared in the first Len'en Project game Evanescent Existence.

Yabusame Houlen

  • Just like in the games, Yabusame is treated like a fool. Even JynX make a joke regarding this, by adding a next to them in the menu of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle that means "idiot" (バカ, baka), a reference to the Touhou fandom's opinion of Cirno's stupidity.
  • They are sometimes compared to Reimu Hakurei due to their protagonistic roles in their respective projects (Len'en Project/Touhou Project).
  • One artist has drawn Yabusame looking in from one of their dimensional portals speaking the phrase, "Life has many doors, Tsubakura-chan!" as a parody of the Ed, Edd n Eddy meme.
  • Likely as a reference to their dialogue in Reactivate Majestical Imperial, they are frequently drawn holding or eating rice balls.
  • Due to Yabusame having a habit of eating odd things like raw salt, a common joke about them involves them eating things normally considered unpalatable or inedible.
  • When Rule 34 art is drawn of them, many fans tend to refer to them as "Yaboob", a portmanteau of "Yabusame" and "boob".

Tsubakura Enraku

  • Due to their seemingly unusual relationships with various characters, their thoughts on Yabusame Houlen & Shion, and their way of beating up people, some fans believe that they are in fact cruel and selfish and not an actual hero, only caring for their own welfare and enjoyment.
  • Their loose relationships with the cast, informal personality, and role as a protagonist also sometimes result in comparisons to Marisa Kirisame of the Touhou Project.
  • The phrase "W a r  o v e r  p l e a s e" has been associated with them in the Western fanbase due to an English translation in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle.
  • Western fans have joked about them having aneurysms. This has extended to include Suzumi Kuzu harassing them for it.


  • Kurohebi's apparent resemblance to Solid Snake has led to comparisons, or even depictions of Kurohebi as him.

Aoji Shitodo

  • Aoji's consistent misnaming among the game's cast has resulted in "Aoki" and "Aoi" being adopted as nicknames.
  • Their whirlpool powers have led to jokes involving toilets.

Hooaka Shitodo

  • In a similar manner to Sese, fans have joked about their max power shottype being overpowered.

Kuroji Shitodo

  • Kuroji's use of knives, threatening-but-aloof personality, and role as a "third wheel" protagonist sometimes result in comparisons to Sakuya Izayoi of the Touhou Project.
  • Their ability to reverse objects also often leads to parallels to Seija Kijin, partly because Evanescent Existence was released shortly after Double Dealing Character.
  • Kuroji's (as well as their siblings') surname is often associated with the vulgar word "sh*t" in the Western community by some due to the rōmaji of their names. Terms such as "Holy Shitodo" might be used.


  • Clause is an unusually a popular character, despite only having very few appearances, which JynX is aware of.[1] Even amongst the fanbase, Clause is considered a complete nuisance, but in a good way. Fans will comment about their long title and name, as well as "imitating" the way they speak (like so with the quotes). This kind of imitation may lead to having long, structured sentences.
  • Clause's long name has been further joked about since Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, because even JynX can no longer be bothered to write their full name, shortening it to "(Omitted Beginning) Clause (Omitted End) ((前略)クラウゼ(後略), (Zenryaku) Kurauze (Kōryaku)). The term "Zenryaku" is also used by the Western community as a nickname due to it being used as the English translation in the game.
  • Clause can be seen dressed as Santa Claus due to having similar names.
  • Clause has been treated as a bit of a "loser" due to having been revealed to have been homeless before Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, along with the fact that they were on the verge of death.

Tsurubami Senri

  • The term "cha-cha" (a long-enduring mistranslation of a line spoken in Evanescent Existence's extra), along with dancing in general and the phrase "Shall we dance?", is strongly associated with Tsurubami. This has led to many depictions of them being a dancer, further emboldened by their theme being titled "Eternal Dance Engine ~ Shall_We_Dance!!"—considered a very upbeat extra boss theme.
  • Due to Suzumi Kuzu disguising as Tsurubami in Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, some fans have given the fake Tsurubami some nicknames such as "Tsuzubami Senzu", "Tzusurumi" or "Fakebami". This disguise is theorised to have been a way for JynX to have Tsurubami appear in the game, since (a) every character throughout the Len'en Project appears in the game, and (b) the real Tsurubami is on holiday/vacation in the Outside World, and thus cannot appear as their true self.
  • Due to the sheer chaos Mugenri is going through in the Len'en Project, fans joke about different ways that Tsurubami would react towards Tsubakura Enraku and Yabusame Houlen if they were to return and find Mugenri in a mess, generally being furious.
  • Fans often speculate about how Tsurubami's holiday/vacation in the outside world is going, often leading to jokes about them being poorly-adapted to life in the outside world.


  • Before being confirmed in Book of the Cafe, it was for years deemed a fan dub to call these fairies due to no confirmation of their idenity. They were called Fairy-like Enemies (妖精っぽい雑魚) in Interview with JynX (2015). They're also sometimes called "Russian Fairies" due to their hats.


  1. JynX's Twitter: "The thing that surprised me the most is that Clause is really popular for some reason. Well, even so I won't give them an excessive amount of appearances. That'd be annoying."
