He tried at least ''thrice'' to kill the guy (by sending him to sleep in a room full of snakes, then having him clean his hair of which is full of either [[BeeAfraid wasps and bees]] or CreepyCentipedes, and later setting a fatal archery challenge involving [[KillItWithFire a field in fire]]), but Okunikinushi lived through each attempt on his life. Then he [[OutGambitted outsmarted]] Susano-oh by tying his long hair to his rafter when he was asleep so he and Suseri-hime could elope, also taking Susano-oh's treasures (his bow and arrow and his beloved ''koto'') with him. When Susano-oh woke up and caught up with them, he relented and gave the lovers his blessings.

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/{{Persepolis}}''. While Marjane's mother doesn't approve of her engagement, her father overrules any vetos on the conditions that her husband-to-be lives outside of Iran with her and agrees to let her divorce, should it come to that. He agrees, and the two are married. Eventually the two become unhappy and get divorced, at which point Marjane's father reveals that he suspected as much, but also knew that flat-out forbidding the marriage would only make the couple more determined to defy him. To keep things as smooth as possible, he just made sure Marjane had an easy out when things inevitably went badly. (Her mother, upon hearing this, is annoyed he didn't just let her in on the plan so she wouldn't have worried so much.)
