Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|What is the name of the island inhabited by cats where Amaterasu receives the Wall Climb brush technique?||"Okami": The Game for PS2
Catcall Island. On Catcall Island, there is an enormously tall tower. On the top of the tower is a hungry cat, which, when fed, will grant the Wall Climb power.
Nagi. Susanno is the descendant of Nagi, and defeats Orochi the second time he awakens. They look almost identical and both are lazy and more than slightly cowardly. Ironically, Ammy did most of the fighting in both battles; Nagi and Susanno just struck the final blows.
Blight. When Blight possessed the Emperor, a fog settled over the capital city and sickened the citizens. Luckily, Ammy was there to go into the Emperor's stomach and defeat Blight.
The Ark of Yamato. The Ark of Yamato was a legendary ark created by the Moon Tribe for the Celestial Beings. When Orochi and Shiranui fought on the Celsetial Plain, the Celestial Beings fled in the ark. Unfortunately, the ark was infested with all manner of demons, which devoured the Celestial Beings one-by-one. The ship crashed in Laochi Lake, and is said to be the source of all the demons that infest Japan.
The Fox Rods. Priestess Rao was the one looking for the Fox Rods, as she claimed they were the ultimate weapon against evil. After Ameterasue entrusts her with them, it is discovered that Rao is actually a fox demon in disguise. This causes a great stir of trouble for Ammy, who must then track down and defeat the fox demon to undo the damage done.
8 Purification Sake. 8 Purification Sake was brewed for the purpose of defeating Orochi, and afterwards it became a tradition to drink the sake on the anniversary of Orochi's defeat, for which a festival is held. This sake is brewed special for the festival by Kushi, the local sake brewer.
A Poncle. Issun looks a lot like a bug or insect, but he is actually a Poncle. The Poncles have a village in the game which Ammy enters by shrinking.
Thirteen. The thirteen brush gods were animals from the Chinese Zodiac, with the exception of the Cat. According to myth, when a race was held to see which animals would be in the Zodiac, the Cat was tricked by the Rat into thinking the race was a day later than what was originally scheduled. When the Cat showed up a day later, he discovered that he had missed his chance of getting into the Zodiac, and Cat and Rat have been enemies ever since.
Wolf. Okami means wolf, but kami is a word for god. Ammy is commonly mistaken for a dog by players, but the Japanese word for dog is inu. The word for artist is ekaki.
Blizzard. Itegami, the ox god of snow, bestows upon Amaterasu the power of ice. Along with this brush technique, Amaterasu receives the Divine Instrument Solar Flare.
Wolves. The Oina Tribe live at the foot of Ezofujii, a volcanic mountain in the heart of snowy Kamui. Every year, the chief of the Oina Tribe recites the Volcanic Incantation, which causes a volcanic eruption which prevents Kamui from completely freezing over.
Grandfather. Ishaku was a Poncle that accompanied Shiranui on his travels. His grandson Issun accompanies Amaterasu in the same way.
Rejuvenation. Yomigami, the dragon god of restoration, gives Amaterasu the power of rejuvenation. Amaterasu uses this power to restore broken objects.
Oki. Oki, a warrior from Kamui, fought the twin demons, Lechku and Nechku alongside Amaterasu. Shiranui came back from the past and fought only Nechku with Amaterasu.
Whopper. After catching Whopper, a giant carp-like fish, Amaterasu received the brush power Crescent. The rest are other fish from the game.
Mr. Orange. Mr. Orange is the oldest and wisest resident of Kamiki Village. In one stage of the game, Amaterasu must help him complete the Konohana Shuffle, a dance which will make Kamiki's guardian tree, Konohana, burst into blossoms.
Fox. Ninetails is an enormous fox that Amaterasu battles on Oni Island. Ninetails possessed the body of Rao, a priestess, so she could snatch the fox rods, the Dark Lord's ultimate instrument of evil. Ninetails is also the only boss that can use the Celestial Brush.
Shiranui. Amaterasu, or Ammy for short, is the reicarnation of a wolf named Shiranui who fought alongside a warrior named Nagi and defeated Orochi. Amaterasu was reincarnated from a statue of Shiranui by Sakuya, the wood sprite. Susano is a warrior who claims to be a descendant of Nagi.
Kurow. Akuro cannot be stopped, So Kurow tricks Akuro into trying to control him, Then he is sliced in half, (by Chibi and Kuni) Kurow and Akuro die together. Kurow was a copy of Waka, (created by Waka) Made for the sole purpose of being a seal for Akuro.
|What did Susano find in the water before he went to fight Orochi?||"Okamiden" (NDS)

Chibiterasu. Chibiterasu is the son of Amaterasu. It is unknown who the father is.
Great god, great spirit, wolf. "Great god, great spirit, or wolf" is the literal English translation to the word "Okami". The entire game "Okami" is based on real Japanese folklore. Some of the tales that inspired "Okami" have their roots in centuries-old mythology.
Tobi. He was a scroll of paper (a corrupt prayer slip) that guarded the gate at Oni Island. By the end of the series of races he becomes something of a comrade to Amaterasu and Issun.
