Hint: Hidden brush technique: Using the brush, draw a lightning bolt sign. This should
unleash a rain of electricity. However you cannot use the brush
on the lightning to use other powers. Rain Kaos.
Using the brush, draw a "Z". The "Z" must
be all inline. This should create a small sun which will burn
the enemies. Draw two vertical lines down. This should make it
start to rain. This is useful for when you need to fill empty
ponds, etc. Rain Kaos.
Hint: Secret Rain brush technique: Defeat Ninetails and go to the queen's temple. Use
the water on the ground to draw a line connecting the pillars
Hint: Secret Snowflake brush technique:
After obtaining the Blizzard brush technique, you will
also unlock a secret brush technique. This technique simply requires
drawling an asterisk (just an "X" with either a horizontal
line intersecting the middle or a vertical -- not both). A snowflake
of ice (size depending on the asterisk drawn) will appear with
icicles falling around it. Using this on townsfolk. It temporarily
turns them into snowmen. Kimo.
Hint: Secret Thunder Shower Brush Technique:
After you obtain the Thunderstorm brush technique with
further game progression, draw a thunder-bolt symbol (resembles
like a four-jagged zig-zag line), and a group of thunderbolts
will fall onto enemies. ZacComicMan2.

Hint: Devout Beads: At Agata Forest, go to the area next to the cave (where
the psychic is located). On your left should be a narrow strip
of land. It will lead you to a cave. At the end will be a tree.
Use the Bloom Brush. Once the tree has bloomed, there will be
a treasure chest. Open it and you will obtain the Devout Beads.
Hint: Eighth Wonder: You are able to buy this from the merchant in Ponc'tan.
Hint: Infinity Judge: You are able to buy this once you reach Kusa Village.
Hint: Invincibility: Collect all 100 Stray Beads. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Primary Lotus: Equip any Reflector as your sub weapon. Use Gold Dust
on it. Then, press Triangle as soon as an enemy attacks.
Ammy will then execute Primary Lotus, and grab the enemy and slam
them into the ground spinning. This hurts them quite a lot. Note:
This can only be used on regular enemies, and not Bosses. stscotti.
Hint: Resurrection Beads: You are able to buy this from the merchant in Wep'keer.
Hint: Seven Strike: You are able to buy this once you reach Sei-an City.
Hint: Tundra Beads: You are able to buy this from the merchant on the Ark
of Yamato. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Golden Fury: Urine attack: Obtain 100,000 yen. Go to Shinshu Field and buy it
from the Sensei. This enables you to urinate on your enemies.
Hint: Instant kill parry attack: This attack requires a rosary weapon (Devout Beads,
Beads of Life) equipped as your first weapon and a reflector weapon
(Divine Instrument, Snarling Beast) equipped as your second weapon.
When in battle, wait for your opponent to do a physical attack.
As soon as that happens, press Triangle. Most enemies will
die instantly. This is a good way to get Demon Fangs. ZacComicMan.
Hint: Defeating Bandit Spider: Bandit Spider is an optional Boss. To fight Bandit
Spider, learn "Digging Champ" from Onigiri Sensei. Then,
go to Ryoshima Coast. Go past the Monk Temple and follow the trail.
There will be an area when there are two brown cows and a calf.
There will be a rock surface for you to dig at. Dig there, and
a hole will appear that has a purple mist coming out of it. Go
into it, and you will be able to fight Bandit Spider. Bandit Spider
is a lot like Spider Queen, except it attacks more often by throwing
energy balls. Draw three lines to his spinnerets, then attack
the lamps. Also, when it starts spitting out a metal sac (with
a fuse on it), draw a line form the fire to the "bomb"
and you can attack the lamps again using the same method. Continue
doing this to defeat Bandit Spider. ZacComicMan.
You can fight Bandit Spider again once you reach North Ryoshima
Coast. Ride the Orca to one of the islands and you will see a
rock surface. This requires the technique "Digging Champ".
Dig there and you will fall into a hole. If you defeat him, you
will get a Sun Fragment. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Defeating Blight: Blight has an extremely difficult defense. It will
take awhile to defeat him. He will crouch when he does his speed
attack, which is impossible to dodge. Use the Veil of Mist Brush
to slow it down. Blight will lose its color. Attack it when he
is in this state. He will become a pile of armor with a glowing
blue sword. Equip the Tsumugari and use a Veil of Mist Brush so
that you will have more time to attack the sword. Use Excorism
Slips and your Tsumugari to attack the sword. Continue doing this
to defeat Blight. ZacComicMan.
Hint: Defeating Crimson Helm: Avoid its attacks. Remember, he uses fire based attacks.
If you get burnt, used the Gale Storm Brush. When he starts to
stand up and burst into flames, start to attack him using your
Devout Beads. He will reveal himself as a flaming skeleton. Use
the Gale Storm Brush to put the fire out. He will be just a normal
skeleton. When in this state, attack him using your Devout Beads.
Continue doing this to defeat Crimson Helm. ZacComicMan.
Hint: Defeating Lechku and Nechku: You will have Oki on your side this time. Lechku will
do about the same thing as Nechku; shoot dark fruit and ice. Defeat
Nechku using the same technique used last time. Lechku however
can freeze time, allowing Nechku to attack. Use a Power Slash
to stop Nechku. Lechku will also wield a Nine Strike like Ninetails
used. Draw a thunderbolt to it. When they malfunction, uses Oki's
ice bow, bite him, pull, then fire. You and Oki will attack him.
Continue this to defeat Lechku and Nechku. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Defeating Nechku: Because Shiranui will be on your side for this match,
it should be over quickly. When it starts shooting dark fruit,
use Power Slash to fire them back at Nechku. He will start to
malfunction. Knock him out with a Power Slash. You and Shiranui
will then attack Nechku, using brush techniques for support. Nechku
will sometimes shoot out ice. You can avoid this by dodging them.
Hint: Defeating Ninetails: First, Ninetails may attack by ramming into you, whipping
you with his tails, summoning foxfire or squirting out pools of
acid. Your brush techniques will not usually work on him either,
because he has the power of a brush god as well. He will cross
out all your attacks, or make a weapon out of your drawing. For
example, if you draw a circle he might cross it out or turn it
into a cherry bomb. When he raises his Nine Strike, draw a thunderbolt
to the sword. He will turn into nine maidens. Defeat some of them.
It might be wise to use some Exorcism Slips. He will lose more
tails the more enemies you defeat. Sooner or later he will turn
into a normal one-tailed fox. You can use brush techniques and
any attack on him. He will also lose his brush techniques. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Defeating Orochi: Orochi will be protected by a barrier. Your attacks
will not do any damage to Orochi. You should be able to dodge
the slow moving flames on the fire head. Later, use the Waterspout
Brush to pour the sake into the Orochi's mouth. Do this two times
and one of the Orochi heads will get drunk. Walk onto the Orochi's
neck and get to the bell. Attack the bell until the bell's health
gauge reaches zero. The barrier will shatter and you must get
the all the Orochi heads drunk. Do the poison and darkness head
last. You are now able to attack the heads when they are drunk
with your weapon (preferably the Beads of Life) and brushes. Continue
this until Orochi is defeated. At the end of the fight, Susano
will appear. Use the Power Slash Brush wherever the kanji (Japanese
symbol) is, and the Orochi is defeated. ZacComicMan.
Hint: Defeating True Orochi: Use the same method on the True Orochi as you did with
the normal Orochi. However, there is a catch. His gold armor gives
him higher defense, but he does not attack as much. When he does
attack, it does a lot of damage. Use the same method you used
with the normal Orochi to defeat him. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Defeating Spider Queen: First, just dodge her attacks. Try to keep a far distance
away from her. Later she will start spinning a web ready to do
a belly flop, or starts to spit webs from a gray sack. Use the
Power Slash Brush on the wed she spins or the gray sack and she
will fall down. She will have some hooks at the tip of her spinnerets.
Use the blossoms around the stadium to do the Vine Brush and connect
two vines to the end of the hooks. Her thorax will open up and
eyeballs will appear. Use your Devout Beads to attack the eyeballs.
This will do damage to her. Keep doing this to defeat Spider Queen.
Hint: Defeating Yami: You will not have your brush techniques at first. Just
continue to attack Yami. Watch out for his saw blade attack. He
will also smash holes in the ground. Watch out for them until
you obtain the Rejuvenation brush. You can now fill in the holes.
Sooner or later you will obtain the Power Slash brush. You can
use your weapon (preferably the Tundra Beads, Thunder Edge or
Solar Flare) and Power Slash. When Yami lets his guard down, attack
him. You will soon obtain the Bloom brush. Just use Bloom on him
to reveal his controller, and attack it. Continue this to defeat
Yami's second form is a ball that will burst into flames and chase
you around at first. When Yami is not a fireball, attack him.
To hit it easier, place a Rosary weapon as your sub weapon with
a Reflector as your main weapon. You will obtain the Cherry Bomb
Brush. Draw a cherry bomb to blow Yami into pieces, and attack
the controller. Later, you will get the Waterspout Brush. Use
this to draw water from the fountain to Yami when it is on fire.
Later you will get the Crescent Brush, which you can use to summon
Susano and slice Yami in half. Then, you can attack the controller.
Yami's third form is like a slot machine. Basically, use a Power
Slash to stop the machine and it will either shoot out cursed
fruits, fireballs, ice blocks, thunderbolts, solar energy, ink
and the controller. The middle slot will be the most powerful.
If the middle slot is fire, it will shoot out fireballs that are
nearly impossible to dodge. Use the Gale Storm Brush that you
will get later to put out the fire. If it is ice, it will shoot
out ice that will make a frozen path on the ground. If you touch
it, you will freeze and lose health. Later you will get the Inferno
Brush back so you can melt it. If it is lightning, there is nothing
you can do but run. Do the same if it is cursed fruit, as it will
put you in an erupting cursed zone that could kill you in a short
period of time. Later when you get the Veil of Mist Brush, you
can use Power Slash to make it land on any slot and get health
from the phantom. Continue this to defeat it. OkamiZaku.
Yami's fourth form is similar to a ball with arms and legs. Yami
can shoot missiles like its first form could, but they are a lot
more accurate this time. Sometimes he will float in mid-air and
pursue you while exploding. When his controller pops out of the
ball, you can attack him. Sometimes he will lay on one side, making
it easier for you to attack the controller. You will only have
three more brushes to get: Catwalk, Thunderstorm and Blizzard.
When you get Catwalk back, there will be some platforms that you
can walk up using the Catwalk Brush. There will be some treasure
for you that may help you during battle, although once you use
the Catwalk Brush on all three of the platforms you will not be
able to use them again. Soon you will get the Thunderstorm Brush.
Yami will sometimes transform his arms into Nine Strike swords,
so you can shock him. You can then defeat him easier. You will
get the last brush, then you will defeat Yami later. OkamiZaku.
During your fight with Yami, you normally draw a sun in order
to battle. However, if you draw a moon crescent instead, Nagi/Susano
will fly from the heavens to deliver a falling blow to Yami. rjose.
Hint: Defeating True Yami: First, you will not have enough power to use melee
attacks and brush techniques. When you get enough ink, draw the
sun to weaken True Yami. The controller will fall out of its hand.
You will have a chance to attack him. Use the Solar Flare, Thunder
Edge, and Tundra Beads. Brush techniques will work well, but should
be used sparingly. True Yami has very powerful, almost one-hit
K.O. attacks. He will whip up a tornado, that once you are trapped
in it, has no escape and it will eventually kill you. Use the
Gale Storm Brush to blow away the tornado, but True Yami will
sometimes take away the sun so that the tornado will pursue you
without you being able to use the Gale Storm Brush to blow away
the tornado. Just run if this happens and wait until you are able
to draw a sun and attack the controller. True Yami may also throw
balls of lightning. Dodge them. A barrage of a just a few will
kill you. He may also bring down a rain of fireballs that could
kill you. If you manage to get hit by one, you will burn up and
slowly eat your health. Use another Gale Storm Brush to put the
fire out. If he uses ice, it will do a lot of damage and freeze
you. His most powerful attack is his great laser attack. Get your
camera to where you can see a full view and avoid it. When the
controller is visible inside the giant hand, you can attack it
easily. Use a lot of health items and just attack the controller
when it is visible to defeat True Yami. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Changing ice statues: When you enter Kamui go to the right of the Guardian
Sapling. You will find the Kokari boy and his dog Ume. To the
right of them is the third dojo. There is a big pile of snow close
to it. If you power slash it enough times, an ice statue of Issun
x1000 will appear. Destroy it with Inferno and go in the dojo
then go back out. The pile of snow reappear. If you power slash
it again, a statue of Sakuya will appear. Keep repeating the process
for a new statue every time. srd460.
Hint: Turn Oki people into wolves: Draw a circle around any Oki townsfolk to transform
him or her into a wolf. Draw a circle around the townsfolk again
to change them back into a human. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Hidden Shiranui Statue: At the entrance to Kamui (in the area where Oki's house
is located), go into the middle section of the area. You should
see a snow covered rock. Power-Slash it a few times and a statue
of Shiranui will appear, similar to the one in Kamiki Village
at the beginning of the game, except with the Solar Flare divine
Hint: Finding Inabi: The Animal Lover at Ryoshima Coast complains that he
has lost his pet named Inabi. Inabi is at North Ryoshima coast
or on one of the islands near North Ryoshima Coast underground.
Inabi is the back and white rabbit that is with all the other
hares. Note: Inabi is Capcom's madscot. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Kimono design: After you defeat Blight, the cursed zone will clear.
At the Sei-an exit, turn left. There will be a building next to
a locked building. Go inside of the building. You will be inside
of a kimono shop. Go to the room next to the cashier and there
will be a man who is a kimono designer. Talk to him, and he will
ask for a new design. Draw whatever desired on the kimono. After
you do this, the villagers will all have the design you drew on
it. The walls will also have the same design. OkamiZaku.
Hint: Resident Evil reference: After defeating Blight and freeing Sei-an City, look
carefully at the Emperor's robe. You will see the Biohazard, which
is a reference to Capcom's franchise Resident Evil (Bio Hazard).
Hint: Street Fighter reference:
In Kamiki Village after you help Ms. Orange with
her pole, she will invite you to eat Cherry Cakes at her house,
but only at night. Her house is the one with a giant orange on
top of it. Go there and talk with her. She will perform a Shun
Goku Satsu in order to make and bake the cakes. Shun Goku Satsu
is a move from Akuma/Gouki, from Street Fighter series.
Hint: Viewtiful Joe reference:
When Onigiri Sensei goes into "training mode",
he will go into a pose that is similar to that of a pose from
Viewtiful Joe. OkamiZaku.
