- "If you grew up playing Touhou in the late 1980s and early 1990s, you could not apparently get away from this song. From what fans have said, they've played it at dance parties, roller rinks, and heck, they even played it at both me and Kagami's high school proms."

'U. N. Owen Was Her!?' (Japanese: Ｕ．Ｎ．オーエンは彼女なのか？; Hepburn: 'U. N. Ōen wa Kanojo na no ka?') is the fifteenth song in the soundtrack of Touhou 6: The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. It is generally played during the fight with Flandre Scarlet during the extra stage of the game.
The song has only appeared in one Touhou Project game so far, being The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.
Official comments from the .it file:
- Flandre Scarlet's theme.
- liked this one the best out of the whole game. It depicts a devilish girl in an Oriental and mysterious way.
- Loli-tastic melodies like this are what I'm best at, so I had a lot of fun composing this.
Reception and parodies

The song has been widely parodied and remixed on the internet, with the most popular sites like YouTube, VidSpace, and Nico Nico. Many arrangements from being cute intended for relaxing to insane for bloodthirsty fans, generally from Flandre Scarlet's personality. The song has also made a cult following in pop culture, it was even featured in MAD magazine and for a limited time, the song introduced many new Touhou Project players as "newcomers hoihoi" on Nico Nico. The theme is commonly remixed with other themes such as Remilia Scarlet's theme Septette for the Dead Princess or Koishi Komeiji's theme Hartmann's Youkai Girl.
