Youmu, the Half-Ghost Landscaper is a custom Touhou champion in League of Legends.
Notes and Nonsense
The origin of Orianna, Youmu is a half-ghost gardener, and is extremely loyal to her master Yuyuko, working as her bodyguard. Youmu has a very straightforward and naive personality, constantly failing in most of her tasks because of the way Yuyuko speaks, taking her words literally. This doesn't mean she's unskilled however, as her concentration and speed is exceptional, widely regarded as the 2nd fastest character in Gensokyo, right after Aya. In fact, she moves so fast that time nearby her actually slows down (not conveyed in this design, sadly). Her mentor, Youki Konpaku mysteriously disappeared after 300 years of service to the Saigyouji family, forcing Youmu to be his successor.and
"The things my sword cannot cut, are next to none!"― Konpaku Youmu
- Passive: Hakurouken is her usually used sword, which is used mostly to cut physical objects. Her much longer sword, Roukanken, can slice spiritual objects such as souls and even gods. She may also dual-wield should it be necessary, so this explains the additional damage and range for a temporary amount of time.
- Q: Gap-closer or harass ability. You may choose to not dash and just slice, as the range is pretty generous. The damage isn't great without the follow-up though, so be wise on spending it as harass.
- W: Auto-attack reset. Since there's nothing her sword cannot cut, it shouldn't be a surprise if it can deal true damage, use this to follow up in-between Cherry Blossom Flash and Future Detachment Slash.
- E: Single-target nuke. If you're smart with this ability, you can get away pretty clean right after killing your target with Cherry Blossom Flash.
- R: If you do see Youmu activating this, be really scared if you're a squishy as she doubles her concentration to kill you and your soul. Her ghost-half which is similar to Orianna's ball now becomes a copy of her, amplifying her damage output which is slightly delayed.

Her kit is a high-speed all-in AD assassin that focuses on one enemy, which is almost always the squishy in the enemy team, while also having amazing dueling skills thanks to her ultimate. To compensate, she has poor farming ability since she focuses on champion-killing nearly completely, and can have issues surviving after killing an enemy if the player isn't careful when using Cherry Blossom Flash and Future-Detaching Slash. I want to make her also slow everyone including her allies within the vicinity though, but that can be overpowered. Is she out of theme? Out of balance? Feel free to comment, as harsh as possible. (Rude != harsh though, avoid it) --Mineko Charat Lucky (talk) 19:01, January 18, 2013 (UTC)
