Йому — одно из наиболее странных лиц в Генсокьё, человек и призрак в то же самое время. Ее две половины не смешаны как, можно было бы ожидать от гибрида, но каждая её половина существует в отдельных физических телах. Youmu прямая и сосредоточенная, это служит дополнением ее способностям искусства фехтования. Однако, ее индивидуальность находится в противоречит характеру ее хозяйки, Yuyuko Saigyouji, которая причудливая и игривая от природы. Still, she serves Yuyuko as best as she can, tending to the gardens in Hakugyokurou and following her orders. Youmu владеет двумя лезвиями сразу, научившись этому у отца, Youki. Более длинное лезвие, названное 楼観剣 (Roukanken) — Наблюдающий с башни, как говорят, в состоянии убить десять призраков ,However, not much is known about her particular style of swordsmanship, or her parents. What is known is that Youki, also a servant of Hakugyokurou, had begun training a very young Youmu (possibly as a child?) when he suddenly disappeared one day, leaving her style incomplete (and presumably causing her to teach herself). No one currently knows his whereabouts. During the events of Perfect Cherry Blossom, Youmu was ordered by Yuyuko to gather as much spring essence from Gensokyo as she could in order to get the entire cherry blossom garden, including the legendary Saigyou Ayakashi, to bloom perfectly. Youmu’s efforts indirectly caused winter to continue unchecked in Gensokyo, prompting the player to find the source of the problem. Youmu tried to prevent the player from reaching Hakugyokurou, but was defeated. She also tried to stop the player’s confrontation against Yuyuko, but was defeated again. In Imperishable Night, she traveled to the world of the living at Yuyuko’s behest to fix the moon--although Yuyuko claimed the journey was a tour to sample various foods. In Phantasmagoria of Flower View, she was minding her own business but kept encountering various people barging into Hakugyokurou suspecting her of being behind the flower incident. When she traveled to Gensokyo herself to behold the spectacle, she immediately noticed what was going on but thought nothing of it.

- Youmu's ghostly half is sometimes called "Myon" by fans - Youmu inexplicably says "myon" in the PCB extra stage back story. At other times it has been nicknamed "Option". Though it's a term borrowed from Gradius, this is not a common appellation.
- It is generally accepted in fandom that Myon and Youmu must both be able to sense what the other feels. Some Western fanfic writers also portray Myon as being able to take on the shape of a ghostly duplicate of Youmu, although this depiction is rare among Japanese fanartists. It's accurate, though, as it happens in IaMP during her "Double Pain" story mode spellcard.
- Fanworks occasionally depict Youmu as idolizing Sakuya, most likely because they are similar characters; they are stage 5 bosses who use bladed weapons and have power over time. In these comics Youmu addresses Sakuya as "Onee-sama", a title usually used to refer respectfully to an older sister or to a woman one respects or admires. Additionally Youmu frequently gets parodied crossing over with Jean-Pierre Polnareff of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (A fast moving sword stand user), much like Sakuya and Dio of the same series.
- The characters for Konpaku mean simply "Soul", and Youmu something like "Bewitching dream."
- Although both "Kon" (魂) and "Paku" (魄) are "soul", their elements are different. "Kon" stands for a mental soul, which is separated from a body as soon as human dies and ascends to Heaven; "Paku" is a physical soul, which remains in the body a few days and goes back to the Earth. In this case, "Kon" is Youmu's ghostly half, and "Paku" is human half. The entire Konpaku family is one of half-ghost half-humans, as noted by Perfect Memento.
- The kanji that makes up "Youmu" (妖夢) is also part of the kanji for Perfect Cherry Blossom (東方妖々夢).
- In Phantasmagoria of Flower View, Youmu's name is written in Roman letters Japanese style, with her surname first, during pre-battle conversation with her, even though every other character in the game with a Japanese name has their name Romanized western-style with their first names first. This is one of several typographical inconsistencies in the game (another being the inconsistent spelling of Aya's name).
- Because of Youmu's spellcard "200 Yojana in One Slash", she is said to be capable of striking at speeds most would consider physically impossible (200 yojana can be a distance anywhere from 1,320-3,000 kilometers or 825-1,875 statute miles in length). In order to cover that kind of distance in the split-second a typical sword slash takes to execute, she would have to be capable of moving at far beyond hypersonic speed; her slowest sword slashes have been calculated to move at speeds in excess of Mach 70 (70 times the speed of sound, or 53,200 mph/85,120 km/h at sea level), fast enough to circle the entire Earth at the Equator in less than half an hour and around three times the speed required to orbit the Earth, for reference. One doujinshi went into far too much detail trying to work out the specifics of this, and determined that her theoretical top speed was approximately one quarter of the speed of light...
- During some of Youmu's spellcards time appears to slow down while she performs her sword slashes. This is not due to any innate time-stopping power such as the one Sakuya has; rather, it is simply Youmu moving so fast that relative time slows down for her (Einstein's special relativity theories hold that at extremely high velocities time moves slower for those traveling at that velocity than for a stationary observer). For the record, moving at this velocity should vaporize her and her sword due to aerodynamic heating... thank goodness for magic.

魂魄 妖夢（こんぱく ようむ）
She's the gardener of Hakugyokurou (which is in the world past death), but originally she was a swordmanship teacher for Yuyuko.
Even she herself is not certain either she is alive or not, human or ghost. However, she slowly but surely grows older as time passes, so maybe she's alive. Konpaku's swords were designed primarily for use against ghosts and spiritual beings, but they still seem to work well against "pre-deads".
