Standard Equipment: Her dolls

  • Dolls: Alice has many, many dolls. They can attack with weapons and magic. They can shield her with shields and barriers. They can sacrifice themselves in the blaze of glory near enemies. And, of course, they can do housework. It seems Alice advanced a little in her task to make fully autonomous doll since her dolls are partially autonomous (they obey commands). All Alice's dolls can fly. The mainstream dolls are Shanghai dolls.

Intelligence: High, genius puppeteer, good at tactics and strategy

Weaknesses: The more dolls she fields, the more difficulty she has dodging. Vulnerable to spiritual attacks.

  • Handling Dolls: Alice's magical specialty is the creation and handling dolls. She is able to manipulate multiple dolls on the field at once with ease, and her skill is amongst the finest in Gensokyo. She can move her dolls just as humans move. She also prepares much of her own dolls as explosives to use in combat by stuffing them with gunpowder or otherwise detonating them through magic.
  • "Phantom-Seeing Power": Alice can see through illusions and see the true forms of other beings easily - she saw the invisible light from the true full moon, saw that Mokou was not truly alive, and saw Keine's true form as a Were-Hakutaku.
