It ain't magic if it ain't flashy. Danmaku's all about firepower.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Magic: Marisa is a normal human with no innate abilities, but she has trained herself in magic, using exotic mushrooms as ingredients and her Mini-Hakkero as a power source. The majority of her spells rely on power over finesse, and are themed after stars and other astronomical phenomena. Despite her best spiritual affinity being with water, her preferences lead her to rely mostly on light and heat magic. As a result of her research, Marisa is also knowledgeable in explosives. Marisa is an Eastern magician who takes a Western approach to magic, the opposite of Patchouli Knowledge. Many of Marisa's best-known spells are replicas of spells used by other characters which fit her tastes, though she has also experimented with them to create improved versions.

Skill Cards:

  • Devildom Torch: An improved potion that scatters flame about from the point of impact.
  • Green Spread: Fires wide-range spread lasers which converge to create a ball of magic energy.
  • Luminary Shot: Marisa fires several magic missiles from her finger.
  • Magical Waste-Recycling Bomb: The heaviest time bomb. Throws a bomb which then jumps and tumbles. After a while, it explodes with great force, damaging even Marisa.
  • Meteonic Debris: Fires small magic missiles. Fairly wide-range, but prorates significantly.
  • Narrow Spark: Fires a laser straight ahead. Firing is slow, but it has high piercing power, making it useful in long exchanges of blows.
  • Radial Strike: Uses the broom as a rifle and turns the flow of Ley Line into bullets. Although it takes a while to fire, the speed and power of the bullets are spectacular.
  • Stellar Missile: Aims straight up and fires a magic missile. The bullet travels a fixed distance and explodes.
  • Strato Fraction: The bullets that were shot off rapidly at the sky above become shooting stars and attack the surroundings in a downpour.
  • Witching Blast: Uses her broom as a gun barrel, and fires a powerful missile.
  • Witch Leyline: Augments the broom with magic and uses it to charge.

Spell Cards:

  • Light Sign "Luminous Strike": Using a broom as a gun barrel, fires large and high speed magic bullets.
  • Love Sign "Master Spark": Marisa's signature attack, a giant magical laser fired from the palms of her hands and powered by the Mini-Hakkero. She stole this from Yuuka Kazami.
  • Love Sign "Non-Directional Laser": Shoots concentrated, powerful lasers forward. The lasers widen with time. She stole this from one of Patchouli's non-spells.
  • Magicannon "Final Spark": One of the many variations on the Master Spark - this one is much stronger and covers a much greater area.
  • Magic Space "Asteroid Belt": An asteroid belt is strong enough to pull two large planets away.
  • Perverse Love "Easy-Harvest Master Spark": Using a narrow beam as a conductor, Marisa can amplify the power of a Master Spark.
  • Ritual Sign "Orreries Sun": Magically installed bits fire to strengthen Marisa's assault. Gives her more projectiles and more lasers, basically.
  • Star Sign "Gravity Beat": Using the broom as a gun barrel, shoots a magic bullet straight up into the sky, which then falls on the opponent's head and explodes on the ground.
