Yoshiwara Dayuu (吉原ダユー Yoshiwara Dayū?) is the Stage 9 boss in Parodius Da!


According to the game's manual she is the ghost of a courtesan/prostitute.

Attack patterns

This boss first shows up as a cloud of gas which moves fast and tracks the player's movements. After a while, the cloud move to the right of the screen and reform into the boss proper, which will then float around while summoning lots of Human Souls. Her weak point is the orange orb in front of her.


  • In the Famicom version she was replaced with a similar boss, hidden in this version's exclusive stage.
