|“||This half-finished eternal night that you have made... With my spell to manipulate eternity, I'll tear it all away. The dawn shall be upon us soon. How's that? With this, your spell of eternal night shall be broken, and the dawn shall come!||„|
|~ Kaguya Houraisan|
Kaguya Houraisan (蓬莱山 輝夜) is the former princess of the Moon, banished to Earth for consuming the Hourai Elixir to become immortal. There, she dwelt among the humans and eventually grew to love her new home. Her beauty attracted many suitors, but she refused to marry any of them if they failed to accomplish one of her Five Impossible Requests. Eventually, when the Lunarians forgave her and attempted to retrieve her, she escaped with Eirin Yagokoro to the hidden mansion of Eientei.
She is based on a character from a 10th-century Japanese folk-tale, The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.

- Manipulation of Eternity and the Instantaneous: Kaguya is able to apply eternity onto other people and objects, trapping them in a state of immutability. Things that possess eternity reject all change; they can't change and cannot be interacted with or affected by outside forces. Through manipulation of the instantaneous, Kaguya is apparently able to perceive and exist within different timelines, and she can manipulate the instantaneous so that things can happen in a literal instant.
- Divine Treasure - Salamander Shield: Kaguya uses her fire rat robe to create a flaming barrier around herself, defending her from attack while burning all those who attempt to make contact with her.
- Impossible Request: Bullet Branch of Hourai - Rainbow Danmaku: Kaguya creates a point in front of her that admits a barrage of small rainbow danmaku. To make it harder to dodge, she sends out larger danmaku in a circle around her. The bullets coming from the circle become less organized and more plentiful as the attack progresses, making it harder to dodge.
- End of Imperishable Night - Morning Mist: Kaguya sends a barrage of projectiles, including knives, butterflies, orbs of energy, and other forms of danmaku in all directions. The spell becomes more plentiful and harder to dodge as the attack progresses from start to finish.
