In the end, shrine maidens are two colors. Your power is only twenty-eight-point-five-seven-one-four percent as powerful as mine.

You're the one causing all the fuss around here, aren't you?!

Alice Margatroid is one of only a few people known to live within the Forest of Magic. She's a magician known primarily for her skilful use of dolls as well as being a loner. She gets in many fights with Marisa, but they are somewhat acquaintances, sharing many of the same interests and even teaming up at times.

Resistance to Mind Manipulation (Was unaffected by the true Moon, which can drive humans insane and kill them if they look at it), Illusions (Alice can see through illusions due to her "Phantom-Seeing Power"), Poisons (Magicians develop a resistance to many poisons from working with them over the course of their life), Biological Manipulation (Youkai lack DNA and brains), and Matter Manipulation (Youkai are described as a fluctuation and seem to be composed of different particles)

Attack Potency: Low Multiverse level (Should be comparable to Marisa. Claims to be superior to Reimu.

Standard Equipment: Her dolls, Goliath Doll

  • Dolls: Alice has many, many dolls. They can attack with weapons and magic. They can shield her with shields and barriers. They can sacrifice themselves in the blaze of glory near enemies. And, of course, they can do housework. It seems Alice advanced a little in her task to make a fully autonomous doll since her dolls are partially independent (they obey commands). All of Alice's dolls can fly. The mainstream dolls are Shanghai dolls.
  • Grimoire of Alice: The sealed grimoire that Alice carries with her. It's unknown what kind of powers are hidden in it. There is a high chance that it is somehow attached to Alice. It could be the same Grimoire from Mystic Square (or not).

Intelligence: High, genius puppeteer, good at tactics and strategy

Weaknesses: The more dolls Alice fields, the more difficulty she has dodging. She is also vulnerable to spiritual attacks.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Handling Dolls: Alice's magical specialty is the creation and handling dolls. She can manipulate multiple dolls on the field at once with ease, and her skill is amongst the finest in Gensokyo. She can move her dolls just as humans move. She also prepares much of her dolls as explosives to use in combat by stuffing them with gunpowder or otherwise detonating them through magic.
  • "Phantom-Seeing Power": Alice can see through illusions and see the actual forms of other beings easily - she saw the invisible light from the true full moon, saw that Mokou was not truly alive, and saw Keine's pure form as a Were-Hakutaku.

Skill Cards:

  • Doll Ambush: Alice's dolls lie in wait around her and attack when commanded, springing out from nowhere to defend their master.
  • Doll Archers: A set of dolls with bows fire arrows at Alice's opponent, covering a wide area.
  • Doll Arrangement: Alice releases a small set of dolls, which they attack in sequence.
  • Doll Cremation: Alice throws a small number of explosive dolls at her opponent.
  • Doll Negation: Alice fires dolls, charged with magic, that explodes on contact with her opponent.
  • Doll Placement: Alice sets down a doll, which then attacks.
  • Ooedo Explosive Marionette: A doll walks forwards from Alice, exploding on contact with her opponent.
  • Returning Dolls: A doll flies out from Alice to attack her opponent before flying back like a boomerang.
  • Seeker Wire: Alice's dolls fire a laser that travels through all of them before piercing her opponent.
  • SP Doll: One of Alice's dolls begins orbiting around her before flying out to attack her opponent at her command.
  • Thousand Spear Dolls: Dolls armed with lances lunge a short distance forwards from Alice.

Spell Cards:

  • Curse Sign "Hourai Doll": A set of dolls come out to each fire a high-power laser at her opponent.

  • Demonic Control "Return Inanimateness": Alice flings an extremely explosive doll at her opponent.
  • Doll "Futuristic Bunraku": Alice releases a single, powerful doll that she can precisely manipulate from a distance to attack her opponent, detonating it whenever she wants.
  • Dolls "Lemmings' Parade": Alice unleashes a high number of dolls that all run towards her opponent, swarming them and exploding on contact.
  • Focus Power "Trip Wire": The string connecting Alice and one of her dolls turns into a laser, injuring anyone caught between them.

  • Spy Sign "Seeker Dolls": Alice sends out a large number of dolls, which fire lasers that sweep over her surroundings like a net.
