Unzan is a character from Touhou who is Ichirin Kumoi's nyuudou partner. He is literally a gigantic, angry pink cloud with fists and a face, but ZUN describes him as a "gentle old man at heart." The two work together during the boss battles.
During the events of Undefined Fantastic Object, Ichirin and Unzan were acting as guards for Byakuren's ship, to keep out anyone trying to keep her from being revived. She initially thought the heroines were attempting to stop her, but upon realizing they had some parts of the treasure needed to unseal Byakuren, she assumed they were on her side and happily let them through.
Unzan is a pink/reddish cloud with the face of an old man with a beard.
A shy, but overbearing nyuudou, Unzan is quiet and stubborn, with a strong sense of duty. While once feared, together with Ichirin, they rarely attack anyone.
