Walkthrough

Step One: Completing The Game And Everything Else

During the course of your adventure the general idea will be to explore everywhere, open every chest and complete any sidequests you come across, since you'll have to do pretty much all of them. There are trophies that will require you to kill every enemy, collect every treasure (including all 100 collectible beads), learn all techniques, fish all kinds of fish etc.

I recommend you do what you can as soon as you can so you always have enough praise, money and Demon Fangs to get upgrades and make your journey easier as you go. Always have at least half a dozen or so of each type of animal food with you at all times, so you can get their praise right away. Try to do a "flower finish" on all enemies that you can in order to extract Demon Fangs from them. This is especially easy early on with the Imps, so read the description of 'Barking Up the Cherry Tree' for information on how to do these finishes. You do not need to purchase all the weapons, however you will need to purchase all the God Techniques from the dojos (for 'Teach an Old Dog New Tricks'), so save money for that.

If you feel it is too much to focus on right away don't worry. Right before you face the last boss of the game you'll be clearly warned by the game itself that it is a point of no return and ask you if you want to continue. So feel free to take your time and explore at your will, anything you still need to do or collect can be done before that point.


There are four trophies however, that can be missed before that if you don't pay attention:

  • The first one is 'No Furball on the Menu' which happens almost midway through the game, after the ship. It is a certain action you need to do at that certain point of the game.
  • The second one is 'From Imps to Demons', which is the trophy for completing your bestiary (beating one of each type of enemy in the game). This can be missed because of one single enemy that only appears in a certain area, which becomes unavailable after you finish it.
  • Thirdly there is 'Barking Up the Cherry Tree', which requires you to finish the game with less than 5 deaths, combined with acquiring lots of praise, money, fangs and enemy kills. If you're doing everything in the game your only worry will be dying 5 times, which can make you miss the trophy. By doing all the side stuff you'll get plenty of praise and money, but it is a great idea to start reaping those demon fangs from the beginning of the game to save time.
  • For 'Leave No Chest Unopened' there is a single Stray Bead (#1) that can be missed in the game. It is the first one you come across though and it's pretty hard to miss, found inside the River of the Heavens area you go through at the start of the story. If you miss it, you can come back to get it later for most of the game before that area is closed.

Step Two: Clean Up

Just in case you missed something, you can start a New Game+ with your finished game save-file. You will keep pretty much everything except for Sun Fragments collected, Mermaid Coins, both Tablets, the last tier of weapons and some of the techniques. All your treasure, bestiary, animal and fish information will remain, however the Animal Tome will revert to 0% for all species so you can feed them again.

    (missable)

    This trophy is time sensitive, meaning that you can only do it during one specific event in the game. If you miss it you have to either load a previous save or start the game over.

    Right after you finish going through the Sunken Ship in Ryoshima Coast and getting the Lucky Mallet item, you will start an on-water chase sequence where you run away from the Water Dragon.

    Blizzard is the very last brush ability you learn and is located at Wawku Shrine after you solve a puzzle with three wheels. Fill the constellation, earn the ability and unlock the trophy.

  • Increase your Solar Energy, Ink Pot, and Astral Pouch levels to maximum capacity.

    This trophy description is a bit misleading since you actually also have to upgrade your coin purse capacity to the maximum for the trophy to unlock. You don't have to however, collect all the Sun Fragments and fill your health to 20 pieces, so collecting these is entirely up to you.

    If you do all the jobs and rejuvenate everything you see you should have enough praise to purchase everything by the end of the game. Don't forget to dig/bloom all the clovers you see (they give plenty of praise near the end game) and also feed all the animals you come across. Getting all animals to 100% fed may not be necessary for the Animal Tome trophy, however all the praise they give will surely come in handy for upgrading everything.

  • Complete your Fish Tome.

    In order to complete your Fish Tome you'll need to fish in at least 3 different locations (out of 4 available). These unlock as you progress the history. Some fish are only present in one place and some even have a specific time of the day for showing up. To get the trophy you'll need to fish at least one of each type of fish in the game. You can sell them and it still counts.

    The fishing locations are as follows:

    • Agata Forest - You'll fish here to advance the main storyline. You can fish freely here with Kokari after clearing the Tsuka Ruins. He will leave this spot after the festival in Kamiki Village for good, however all the fish in this spot can also be caught in the other locales.
    • Sei-an City (Aristocratic Quarter) - You'll fish here to advance the main storyline. You can fish here with Benkei. After you help him out in the drawbridge he will move to nearby the Mermaid Spring in the Aristocratic Quarter.
    • North Ryoshima Coast - In order to fish in this spot you need to buy a 'Marlin Rod' at the city's shop. Meet the guy named Fisherman in the southwestern-most island of the coast, use Orca to arrive there if the Dragon is still around. He'll take your Marlin Rod and you'll need to fish a Marlin fish for the restaurant on shore, after you deliver it he'll be free to fish again.
    • Kamui - To fish here you'll only need to bloom the Sapling in the area, you'll then find the same Kokari from Agata Forest nearby the dojo (southeast).

  • Defeat all monsters on the Wanted List.

    Throughout the game you'll find four different characters that will each give you a list with 5 names of monsters you have to defeat in a certain area. Each enemy will have a name that you must then cross off the wanted list once you beat it, they all appear inside of regular Demon Scrolls in their designated area and only during the night.

    Note that as long as you don't leave the area the Scrolls won't respawn, not even if it turns to day, meaning that if you just go beating every one eventually you'll find all marked monsters. After beating all 20 enemies and crossing their names off the list you'll earn this trophy. Their Demon Scroll locations will always be the same, however their names are random, so I'll list where you can find each person that gives you the list as well as the monster's general location.

    *Locations of monsters are from the great guide by forweg at GameFaqs

    Shinshu Field: As soon as you leave Kamiki village you can talk to Mika in the house right next to the entrance to the Moon Cave and get this list.

    • Just outside the house where you get this list, you'll fight him automatically.
    • Near the south end of the Guardian Sapling.
    • Nearby the Nameless Man house, on the west side of the river.
    • Behind the Nameless Man kiln, on the east side of the river.
    • Near Tama's house, the pyrotechnist.


    Taka Pass: At Kusa Village, go inside the inn. It is the big building right in the middle of the village, with the path going upwards behind it. In the second floor you'll find a small door at the end of the hallway, headbutt to hear a girl send you away. Leave the inn and come back and this girl, Haruka, will be in the room to the right. Talk to her and get the list.

    • Right beside Bingo, near the entrance to City
      Checkpoint.
    • Southwest of the Cutters, near the bridge leading
      to western Taka Pass.
    • Near the cave leading to the Guardian Sapling,
      also near the tea master and merchant.
    • On the other side of the cave, near the beginning
      of the path leading to the Guardian Sapling. Also near some horses.
    • Northwest from the tea master and merchant, near
      some tigers.


    Ryoshima Coast: You get this wanted list at Sei-an city. Go to the restaurant at night (north of commoner quarters) and talk to the drunk man on the right.

    • Close to the Animal Lover, on the north (Sei-an) side.
    • Along the beach. It's about where the beach sticks
      out most toward to the sunken ship.
    • Right in front of the Ankoku Temple Bell.
    • Somewhat near the Guardian Sapling. It's also near some cows
      and a spider cave entrance.
    • Very near the Ryoshima Coast entrance.


    Kamui: The last wanted list is given to you by Wali in Kamui. You can find him inside his house at about the middle of the area, on the west side.

    • At the south, near the entrance of the area.
    • Near the small island where Blockhead Grande resides. A little
      east of it.
    • North of the merchant, on the path.
    • Near the northern edge of the map, on ice. It's east of the
      path leading up to Wep'keer.
    • On the path to Yoshpet, to the northeast.
  • Collect all Stray Beads.

    (missable)

    There are a total of 100 Stray Beads to be found in the game, with 1 of them only being awarded when you finish the story. These are the main collectibles of the game and will usually be the main reward for a side quest or a hard-to-get chest. You need to have 99 Stray Beads before you go fight the last boss, after which you'll unlock the trophy when you gain the 100th bead (after the credits).

    So without further ado here is the list of all 99 you can find, how to get them and when you can get them. Check out the Okami Wiki Stray Beads page.

    Note: It has been brought to my attention that you can miss one Stray Bead, the first one in the game, inside River of the Heavens, when this area closes up. It is pretty hard to not get it though.

    By the way, it should be noted, for those of you that want to complete this Platinum in one playthrough, that there is one missable Stray Bead not mentioned in the guide. At some point in the game, the entrance to the River of the Heavens closes off. You have ample time to get the Stray Bead there, and even if you miss it, its in the first 10 minutes of a NG+, but its still worth noting.

  • Complete your Animal Tome.

    To complete your Animal Tome it is not necessary to feed all animals to 100%, you just need to feed each species at least once. Each animal has their preferred food type. Once you feed the last one the trophy will pop. It is recommended to feed as much as you can as you progress through the game in order to get praise also.

    Below you'll find the locations of each species:

  • Learn all god techniques to fill up your Technique Scroll.

    God techniques are learned through the three dojos around Nippon. Expect to spend over 2.5 million yen on all techniques (mainly because of one), so remember to save up money for these. Each dojo introduces new techniques to be learned while retaining the ones from the previous, so you can always just use the last dojo for everything.

    The first dojo is located on Shinshu Field, right outside of Kamiki Village, this is the only one available from the beginning of the game. The second dojo can be found on an island in Ryoshima Coast and is available as soon as you get access to the coast and Sei-an City. Look for it just off the shore across from the city entrance. The third and final dojo is in Kamui and is also available as soon as you first enter the area. Look for it in the southeast of the map, past the fishing spot.

    • 4 Winds, costs 5,000 Yen

    (missable)

    For this trophy you'll need to fill every entry in your bestiary, meaning you have to face each (and beat) every enemy in the game at least once. This trophy is missable solely because of one enemy, the Fire Doom Mirror. It can only be found at the Imperial Palace mission, where you are the size of a bug trying to get to the Emperor. After obtaining the Veil of Mist technique you'll soon reach the inside of the building where the Emperor is sleeping. On the floor of this area, before you enter his body, there will be a couple of Demon Scrolls, the Fire Doom Mirror can be found in one.

    There is another enemy that, if missed in its original area of appearance, will only appear again in the last area of the game before the final boss, which is after the point of no return. This enemy is the Clay Flyer. So pay attention to it, when you start fighting Clay enemies for the first time just look around the Demon Scrolls in the area and find one of these to make things easier for you.

    All the other enemies can be faced again either in one of the three Devil Gate Trials or in a Demon Scroll around the land, including the none flying Clay enemies, therefore I'll only list their names in the order of the bestiary, for easy comparison:

  • Earn a Cherry Tree rank for each item in the Total Results screen.

    (missable)

    The Total Results screen appears after the end credits and in order to get this trophy the final count for your whole game has to be as follows:

    Deaths: Less than 5
    Praise Earned: 4500 or more
    Enemies Defeated: 550 or more
    Demon Fangs: 300 or more
    Money Gained: 4,000,000 Yen or more

    These numbers are pretty generous actually and you pretty much only have to worry about the deaths and the Demon Fangs. Note that you can spend praise, fangs and money at will, since what matters is the total amount obtained at all times, not what you have with you at any given moment. It is also really important to note that being revived by the Astral Pouch does not count as a death. Same with drowning or failing a sequence of the game. A death will only be counted if you see the Game Over/Continue screen.

    Finishing the game with less than 5 deaths may seem daunting at first, but the reality is that most enemies don't pose a real challenge. If you play through the game upgrading Ammy and its weapons as you go, not even the last boss should kill you. Even if something does, there is always the Astral Pouch to revive you. For the few battles that could be hard (like the Devil Gate Trials) you can use a variety of tools to aid you and heal you.

    Getting enough Demon Fangs should be your focus early on in the game, and you should strive to get them through killing enemies with what is called a "Floral Finisher". You can perform one when you deplete an enemy's health and he starts doing his death animation in slow motion, at this time you have to bring up your brush and use a certain technique on him before he hits the ground. This has to be fast though, as if you hit the enemy in this state with your weapon at least once it will cancel the finisher and you'll lose the opportunity to do it. The trick is that each enemy has a different brush technique as its Floral Finisher, so you can't just finish any enemy with the most convenient technique.

  • Earn a Cherry Tree rank for each item in the Results screen.

    This trophy is not technically story related but it is pretty much impossible to miss. In fact, pretty much everyone will get it right at the beginning of the game. The results screen referred to is the one that appears after every fight and all you need to do is get Cherry Tree rank (the pink colored tree) in both Time and Damage criteria. Pretty easy.

  • Defeat all enemies at all three Devil Gate trial caves.

    In three spots of Nippon you'll find caves that hold a Devil Gate trial, which are Okami's "challenge" mode you could say. This will be the toughest challenge on the road to platinum since the enemies are all much stronger than normal.

    The first time you enter one of these caves you'll have to defeat one Bandit Spider (which is just like the Spider Queen boss from Tsuta Ruins), which should be no challenge at all. However, after you do so and re-enter the cave a Devil Gate will appear in the middle of the area. When you go through it you'll fight a large group of strong enemies and in large numbers, but when you beat it another Devil Gate will appear. You have to beat 10 different Devil Gates that appear in a row (without exiting the cave) in order to clear a trial.

    This could be done easy enough if they were regular Devil Gates, but since the enemy strength is raised so much you'll definitely have to make use of different items to beat them, especially the third trial. If you attempt these at the end of your game you'll have a good amount of money, so you should bring at least more than 30 of each of the best consumable items listed below to each trial, just to be safe. Also remember to have your weapons of preference upgraded with Gold Dust.

    • Golden Ink Pot: By far the most useful artifact in the game, doing these trials with this is a must. It drastically increases the rate of replenishment of your Ink and you can get it for 100 Demon Fangs with the Emperor at Sei-an City, after you defeat Blight.
    • Wood Mat: This is another artifact that you equip. With it whenever you stand still for a while Ammy will lay down and start to recover health in exchange for yen, that gets slowly drained. It is very useful between each Devil Gate within a trial to replenish all your health without using items, since the yen you spend with this is negligible. You can get it for 30 Demon Fangs from the Demon Fang trader at Agata Forest or with the Emperor in Sei-an.
    • Vengeance Slips: Costs 10,000 yen and is extremely useful, since it makes you invincible for quite a generous amount of time.
    • Holy Bone M/L: Should be obvious but don't start one of these trials without enough healing items to last you a while.
    • Steel Fist Sake: These cost 2,000 yen each and pretty much doubles your strength for some time. Really useful to have active at most times.
    • Exorcism Slip M/L: These cost 7,000/10,000 yen a piece and are great for damaging strong enemies. It creates an explosion that damages everyone, going through any defense and also leaving the enemy exposed afterwards. Spamming these make the last Devil Gate at the third trial with the Nagis a cakewalk.

    You can find the caves at:

    Ryoshima Coast: On the way to the Guardian Sapling there will be a path that goes to the side and has some cows nearby, there you will find a hardened dig spot that hides the cave (you'll need the Digging Champ technique from the dojo). The trial will only appear after you go through all of the mandatory fights from the Ryoshima Coast area.
    North Ryoshima Coast: On the western side of the map there are three small isles (where you find the fisherman), in the middle one there is a dig spot with the cave. The trial becomes available after beating Oni Island.
    Kamui: At the north end of the map, climb the ramp that goes up to Wep'keer but jump to the right before you change areas. There is a frozen area only accessible from above where you can blow a hole and find the cave. The trial only becomes available after beating the bosses of Wawku Shrine, Lechku and Nechku.

  • Defeat the Kusa 5.

    You can first challenge these powerful enemies after you beat Oni Island and you can find them inside of the Gale Shrine, past Kusa Village. As soon as you enter the shrine take your first right (north) to reach an alcove with Princess Fuse and the Kusa 5.

    The battle will be against all 8 canine warriors, even though not all are exactly physically present at the time. The first wave will have you fighting against 4 of them, then 3 in the second wave and 1 in the third wave. These are very strong enemies, much stronger than any boss of the game, however it should not be more difficult than some of the Devil Gate Trials. The same tactics and items used for those will apply here, so read the 'Out of the Gate Swinging' trophy description for more information. Using a couple of Vengeance Slips, Steel Fist Sakes and a good Rosary weapon can make short work of these strong bosses with no sweat.

  • Beat Hayabusa's turnip-digging record.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    Although you don't need to complete this mini-game in your first visit to the village you will need to complete it eventually when you are helping Kusa's village princess Fuse find her three missing dogs.

    Easy enough, all you have to do is dig all 10 turnips from the fertile soil in the middle of the village without Mushi's mother catching you. Just use any of your brush techniques on her to slow her down and dig around.

  • Complete five digging mini games.

    Digging minigames are the ones you start with one of five different characters throughout Nippon, that have you leading these people to the bottom of the area for them to find the "golden spot" to dig. Three of them are required to finish the story.

    The first one is story related and is found at Sasa Sanctuary, you'll help Mr. Bamboo. The second one is found in Taka Pass, at the far west of the area, near City Checkpoint. You'll be helping Bingo and this one can get quite tricky, thankfully it is not required to beat the game. It is required for the trophy though of course. The third one is story related. It can be done as soon as you reach Sei-an City and you'll help the city's carpenter, Naguri. You can find him in the northwest corner of the dried-up canal.
    The fourth one is also story related and you'll be helping Kaguya dig. You'll find her at the top of Sasa Sanctuary after killing Blight and releasing her from the Imperial Palace. The last one is in the eastern room of the Dragon Palace with Big Bertha and can be done as soon as you reach the palace.

    Some of them can get somewhat tricky so I've added these great videos to four of them below, by theranmafan:

     

     

     

     

  • Win the race against Ida and Hayate.

    Ida and Hayate are the two messenger brothers running around back and forth Shinshu Fields and Ryoshima Coast respectively. You will need to beat each of them three times for their prizes and the trophy.

    They are pretty easy to beat since all you need to do is connect a headbutt with them once the race starts and their only perk is leaving spikes trails. Just cut corners and be close enough for the headbutt animation to play and they'll go down easily enough. Ida gives you the Gimmick Gear item (needed for a secret brush technique) once you beat him 3 times, and Hayate gives you one Stray Bead for the same accomplishment.

  • Win the race against Kai.

    Different to the Ida and Hayate 'races', this one is a proper race, and can be quite unforgiving as well. You will probably have to replay it once or twice to get the general layout of the area figured out. To race Kai you will first need to beat the Wawku Shrine, so it is pretty late in the game. You will find her at the entrance of the Yoshpet forest in Kamui and you'll race through all three Yoshpet areas before Ponc'tan.

    Ice blocks, snowballs and slippery areas will be your main concerns as you have more than enough time. There are many Evil Trees in the path as well but you can (and should have already) bloom them and turn them into regular trees, they stay this way forever. Take a test run to know the terrain and as long as you don't get frozen a lot you'll beat her by a good margin and get a Stray Bead for your effort.

 

Secret trophies

  • Return Kamiki Village back to normal.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    Soon enough you'll recover the village Sapling and unlock this one.

  • Meet Susano.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    Also very early in the game you'll meet the drunk descendant of the great hero Nagi and unlock this trophy.

  • Fight Waka.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    As soon as you reach Agata Forest and bloom the sapling there you'll meet Waka for the first time and also fight him. The fight itself is pretty easy, try slashing his sword back at him with Power Slash.

  • Exterminate the Spider Queen.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    At the end of Tsuta Ruins you'll face this boss. She is pretty easy and all you need to do is attach three flying Konohana Blossoms to the hooks on her back, this will make her stagger and open up revealing her weak spots. Just hit them a couple of times (use Power Slash to hit all of them at once) and she is gone.

  • Defeat the imps that possessed Princess Fuse.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    When you first reach Kusa Village you won't be able to use your brush abilities because of a dark fog. Run up the village to the higher part and you'll find Princess Fuse possessed by enemies. Dispatch them and you'll earn this trophy.

  • Defeat the Crimson Helm.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    At the end of the Gale Shrine you'll face Crimson Helm. He shouldn't be a big challenge at all, just hit his armor enough to make it fall and expose his flaming body. At this point use Galestorm to clear it of the flames and pound it away until he is defeated.

  • Defeat Orochi.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    At the end of the long Moon Cave dungeon you'll face its boss, Orochi. Although it can be a long battle, it shouldn't be difficult at all. Each of his heads has one element, but they all repeat the same pattern: use their specific attack and then roar. When they roar all you need to do is use your brush to draw a line connecting the pool of sake below to open their mouth.

    First you will need to use the sake twice on three different heads, enough to make them dizzy. With this done the whole boss will collapse, so run up one of the heads and hit the bell with all you've got, hopefully destroying it right away. When the bell is done you'll need to poison each head again, but this time just one dose will be enough to make a head fall and expose it to your attacks. Kill each of the eight heads in this manner and you'll beat the boss and earn the trophy.

  • Defeat Blight.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    At the Imperial Palace you'll eventually descend into the bowels of the emperor. At the end of it is the boss, Blight. Again he shouldn't be hard at all to dispose. Just wait until he is spinning his swords and Power Slash the blue one (you can slow down time if you want, but it is not necessary). It will fall and all you need to do is hit it to damage the boss until he is defeated.

  • Meet Otohime.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    Near the entrance of North Ryoshima Coast you'll find a cat statue that you can use with Catwalk to reach a higher area, called Watcher's Cape. Speak to the guy named Watcher who says he wanted to see a shooting star, so just draw a dot in the sky. This will make a galaxy show up in the sky, so walk up to the edge and use Galestorm on it three times, this will open up the entrance to the Dragon Palace. Inside you'll talk to Otohime and earn this trophy.

  • Defeat Evil Rao.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    After retrieving the Fox Rods from the Water Dragon follow Rao up to Ankoku Temple and through the hole in the wall. You'll eventually reach queen Himiko's room in the city and fight this boss. She is somewhat similar to Blight and should be beaten pretty easily with your current abilities.

  • Win the final race against Tobi.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    During the whole dungeon of Oni Island you'll be guided by a paper ghost called Tobi. You'll have to race it several times to proceed and after you beat him one last time you'll earn this trophy.

  • Defeat Ninetails.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    Ninetails is the boss at Oni Island and quite frankly it is pretty easy yet again. Just wait until it raises a big sword to the sky and connect a thunder ray to it shocking the boss. This will cause 8 small enemies to appear, each one representing a tail. Simply defeat all of them and the last one will return to a now one-tailed weakened boss. Just pound at it and it will go down pretty fast.

  • Defeat True Orochi.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    After quite some time after you reach the island of Kamui, after you progress though the Yoshpet forest and enter the Spirit Gate, you will be at a familiar place in Kamiki Village. Eventually you'll go back to the Moon Cave and face Orochi yet again. It is exactly the same as before so you should have this one in the bag.

  • Defeat the twin demons, Lechku and Nechku.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    At the end of Wawku Shrine you'll first face Nechku by itself and eventually both Nechku and Lechku together. Just keep your distance, shooting their projectiles back at them and hitting them with thunder and you'll see this battle is another cakewalk.

  • Board the Ark of Yamato.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    The Ark of Yamato will be revealed at the middle of Lake Naochi at the end of the game and entering it is the point of no return, after you do it there is no coming back to do any sidequests that you have missed, so be sure to be ready before you go in. This trophy is awarded as soon as you do.

  • Defeat Yami.

    This is a story related trophy and can't be missed.
    Yami is the last boss of the game and, quite frankly, is no big deal, especially with your weapons upgraded and with the help of items.

    It has five different forms and you'll be recovering all of your 13 brush techniques as you fight it. The goal is always to hit the little worm that is in its core and as you get your powers back it gets easier and easier to do that. Just remember to use rejuvenation on the broken holes in the ground as soon as you get it to make your life easier. Beating the fifth and final form (the hand) you'll finish the game and earn this trophy.
