An example of the use of Danmaku shown here in a Touhou fight.


Danmaku (弾幕, literally bullet curtain or curtain fire) is the ability to produce a great amount of projectiles at once, in order to overwhelm the target by the sheer number of shots. Some users also add complex patterns to make dodging additionally difficult.


  • Various different kinds of projectiles can be used
  • Linear projectile trajectories or curving shots
  • One directional, multi-directional or omni-directional
  • From one origin point or multiple origin points


  • Use for extended periods of time might be exhausting
  • Might be incapable of controlling the trajectory of each individual bullet or be limited to patterns
  • Could be impratical to use if the enemy knows the pattern of the attacks and if the projectiles are not powerful enough to do any significant damage
