Marisa Kirisame is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. She was confirmed along with many other magical girl characters on November 1, 2017. Ayumi Fujimura (who also assumes the role for Zelda, Sheik, June and Mechanica, Japanese) and Erica Mendez (who also voiced Ryūko Matoi, English) provide the role for Marisa in this fighting game.
Marisa is a common playable character in most subsequent games throughout the series with somewhat rare alternative roles such as being an Extra stage boss. Her first ever appearance in the Touhou Project was in the second PC-98 game, Story of Eastern Wonderland. Additionally, she has made a guest appearance as the first Extra stage boss in the Seihou Project's first work Shuusou Gyoku.
Marisa serves as an audience surrogate of sorts - she is straight-forward and much easier to understand than other characters, typically filling the support role. She also serves as contrast to Reimu, who's blessed with innate abilities, by being the hard-working type of character without any special powers. ZUN has said that this makes her a rather "un-Touhou-like" character, but also gives him much more leeway in creating a story.
Marisa's height is that of a girl in her early teens and is in the "fairly short" group. Unlike Patchouli Knowledge and Alice Margatroid, who are magicians by species, she's merely an ordinary human who uses magic. In the games themselves, she's a character who consistently stresses high power and quick speed. She exceeds in attack and penetration power, but her attack range is generally narrow. Her signature move is the tremendous laser spell card, Love Sign "Master Spark". She has good speed and power, but poor melee technique.
