Yamata no Yato is a snake god and one of the eight severed heads of the long-dead Yamata no Orochi, who was diced to bits by Susanoo-no-Mikoto. Greatly weakened in power by the loss of Kusanagi and her current state, Yamata used what intellect and power she had left to support the Tougenkyuu group by brute forcing their way into Gensokyo, hoping to use Himemiko's power to locate Kusanagi, but when the resulting incident was resolved, she found herself having to answer to Reimu and Yukari... and then, in her new home, an even peskier snake god.

Attack Potency: At least Large Star level, likely Multi-Solar System level (She has the power to brute force her way into Gensokyo, and she created and transformed into the constellation of Ophiuchus; she has 1/8 the power of her original form, which has been described as an immensely powerful god, and the power of which she can regain by gathering all of her components with Kusanagi).
Speed: Massively FTL+ (She can keep up with Reimu and her peers, at least to some extent, and she traveled into the night sky to become a constellation), Omnipresent in her true form (Gods exist as ideas that spread themselves across all of existence without end).

Standard Equipment: Her smithing hammer, and a number of swords, including Kusanagi, briefly.
Intelligence: Yato has retained much of Orochi's intellect, showing the rare know-how on how to brute force her way into Gensokyo, something that should normally be impossible, but, unfortunately for her, she's incredibly naive.
Weaknesses: Yato's power is dependent on faith and she is incredibly naive.
