Sakuya Izayoi is a character from the Touhou Project series of video games. The Chief Maid of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, she has the power to manipulate time in several different ways, such as altering its speed or stopping it completely. She often uses this in conjunction with throwing vast quantities of sharp knives at her enemies.
Sakuya attacks by stopping time and throwing triple spreads of knives in one of many ways. Unlike other time-stopping bosses, her time stop doesn't affect Zero himself. She waits for the fire button to be pressed before attacking, at which point she will do one of the following at random:
- Jump across the room, throwing knives towards Zero both horizontally and straight down. If the fire button isn't pressed beforehand, she will do this automatically while stopping time beforehand; in this case, the knives will be frozen until time starts again.
- Throw three clusters of spread knives straight ahead.
- Stop time, jump in the air, and throw two stationary knive spreads, before floating to the other side of the arena and throwing two green knive spreads after restarting time. These knives will only move while time is frozen, unlike her normal knives.
- Do a short hop off the ground.
If Sakuya's health drops below 14, her triple-combo knife throw attack is replaced by a move where she flies to the top of the screen and throws a flurry of knives down at Zero while starting and stopping time multiple times. In addition to her normal and "inverse" green knives, she will throw blue knives that move regardless of time's current state.
