Now, this may seem like a YOU KNOW YOU'RE ADDICTED TO TOUHOU BLAH BLAH BLAH thing, but I think this needs its own thread.
Have you ever noticed something strangely familiar to Touhou? As in:
Oh hey, the beginning of the Lost Woods song sounds like Marisa's theme!
The whole Kaguya in Okami business
etc
For example, two days ago, I was on the train to SLC. The conductors little beeping noise sounded like the first three notes to Lunatic Princess. I felt the sudden urge every time to finish the song.

Yeah, I know. But it's still a similarity between the two games.

One of the Iron Maiden song's solo sounds EXACTLY like Flowering Night.

Now if I could remember which one it was. I'm going to listen them again.

Hmm really? I should pay attention a bit more.

Or how about an arrange based on the Trooper and Flowering Night?

The Drangonball Z Budokai 2 character select screen sounded almost exactly like a rock remix of Shiki's theme for about 5 seconds. I got all giddy for a moment. :P

Flame Stag's stage theme from Megaman X2 kind of sounds like Strawberry Crisis and I know this was posted before but Reisen's theme and Megaman X5 Zero stage 2 also share similar parts.

Most of these similarities are coincidental!

Love Coloured Master Spark and Saria's song in OoT are similar at first. When I try to play Saria's song on piano, I end up playing Love Coloured Master Spark.

But seriously, direct all "real" similarities here, chaps.
Regarding score threads: For the time being, I'm not going to be online much; I would suggest that you simply do as you normally do, because I will come back and I will want those threads when I do.

Just remembered this since I was recently playing Dark Cloud again.

You go to the moon to consult the advice of the bunnies that live there to help you get to the Dark Genie's castle and seal him away.

Wait... moon bunnies? Hmmmm...

At least two of the PCs in Trouble Witches bear a very strong resemblance to Marisa and Reisen.

Also, yea, the rabbit in the moon is a pan-Asian thing around long before Touhou, like Komeiji points out.

Huh. Yeah, I can kinda hear that. Mostly because of the minor key.

Remember me?

All too much. *has Kirby Super Star Ultra, hates Marx's giant beam attack*

Let's see if I can draw more comparisons between him and Touhou, for the fun of it . . .

Marx . . .
1st: Has wireframe wings punctuated by glittering sparkles,
2nd: Looks adorable (on the surface),
3rd: Has a giant laser beam technique (Hi, Marisa!)
4th: Has a technique where he drops seeds that quick-fire sprout into towering vines (Hi, Yuka, Kanako!)
5th: Has a technique where he unleashes a rapidfire stream of arrows (Hi, Touhou-in-general!)
6th: Moves WAY too much (Hi, bosses!)
7th: Has an EX-Form (Hi, Keine, Reimu, Marisa, etc., etc.!) . . . that scares the bejeezus out of you with the sharp jump in difficulty and can only be gotten to in the mode you unlock after beating everything else (HI EXTRA STAGE).

I got to Marx Soul only ONCE. I HATE him even more than Marx. But I'm determined to beat him, if only to say that I'd gotten to his Ear-Raep Scream of I'm-Dying by my own power. (Granted, I'm doing it the cheapest way possible, but eh, semantics.)

Elis also seems to be like Marx (at least I got that feel of it when I was fighting her), mostly due to her constant teleporting and that rapidfire of arrows she uses.

Nanoha (comparing Hayate with Marisa XD)Hayate the Combat Butler (a butler with a secret power?loli misstress?)Kuroshitsuji, (Phantomhive Mansion=Scarlet Mansion) Loveless (magic of the words=spellcard system,the importance of have a significative name in magic,...danmaku?)Dokuro Chan the Angel of Death=Sariel the Angel of Death,Petshop of Horrors...

 . . . She turned the forest around her home from Lost Woods to a virtual Tastes-Like-Diabetes Candyland-meets-Bubbly-Clouds? Geez.

Of course, the promise of world domination, on the other hand, sold me on the game (and reminded me a bit of Utsuho, in a way; "Supreme power? Possibly destroyed its previous owner from within? Could easily destroy the world? HECK, LET'S GO GET IT!"). I'll have to look about . . . ufufufu...

EDIT: Just remembered a nice little piece of similarity between Touhou and the Kirby series. Kabula/Kaboola, Now* and then. Sure, neither of these players actually goes out of their way to avoid the thing, but it's still a shooter boss no matter which way you toss it, and on top of that I can't help but enjoy fighting her**. And then there's also this. Nova's stage in Milky Way Wishes. Yup, it's a shooter. Not only that, but this guy seems to actually graze the boss a couple times. Of course, it looks different in Super Star Ultra, but it's not that different when it gets down to it.

(* Go to 6:57 -- that's when the actual Kabula fight starts; otherwise, they're Let's-Playing the game and are going through Hard Mode Bubbly Clouds.)
