Cirno (チルノ) is an ice fairy who first appeared on the second stage of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. As a fairy, she is exceptionally strong for her kind, matching the power of some weak youkai. However, compared to most of Gensokyo's residents, she's quite weak. Her personality is childish and she is sometimes considered stupid.

Skill Cards

  • Freeze Touch Me: Lowers her own body temperature, freezing the air around her.
  • Freezing Lasers: Fires a frost beam in three directions.
  • Frost Pillars: Injects a great amount of cold air at her feet and creates large frost pillars that thrust her opponent into the sky.
  • Frozen Technique: Shoots out a wave of cold at a short distance, and freezes the enemy.
  • Ice Charge: Covers herself with ice and tackles the enemy.
  • Ice Kick: Goes in for a flying spin kick while generating ice all around.
  • Icicle Bomb: Shoots out an unstable, low-temperature ice block. The block approaches the enemy and shatters.
  • Icicle Rise: Creates frost pillars at her feet and shoots them into the sky as projectiles. The pillars can hit even as they're being formed.
  • Icicle Shoot: Creates icicles and shoots them towards the enemy. They're weak, but holding down the button will make more of them.
  • Icicle Sword: Creates a weapon from ice, and using that, pierces the enemy.
  • Little Iceberg: Forms ice cubes overhead, and throws them at the enemy. She can only make them from her hands, so it's kind of tough for her to use this move while flying.

Spell Cards

  • Blowing Ice "Ice Tornado": Spins in place and creates a large ice tornado. The tornado becomes larger with time and expands towards a specific direction.
