The theme of returning life to the world also returns, but ''Ōkamiden'' is definitely more character-driven than ''Ōkami'' and its focus on interweaving the many elements of JapaneseMythology.

* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler: Yami (the BigBad from the first game). Although he was defeated by Amaterasu, his evil power remained, although divided into five pieces (Master Anura, Bullhead, Renjishi, King Fury, and Akuro).]] ** [[spoiler:This game has a tendency to contradict itself as to Yami and Akuro. It states in other places that Akuro was the Greater Scope Villain of the first game, having control over Orochi and Yami.]] *** [[spoiler: Subverted. Most just consider the names too literally, ignoring that all the incarnations took on their own identities, and presume Akuro to be a separate entity from Yami. ...Even though he's ''stated'' to be part of Yami right off, and ''vocalized'' a desire to restore Yami's rule. The idea is that he is the will/soul of Yami, and naturally wants to be restored to his former glory. As for Orochi, well, we've already established he was Yami's minion.]]

** When you first visit the Thundercloud with Kurow as your partner, you can talk to a girl who lives in one of the houses. When you talk to her, she tells you to scram and seems to be busy. If you later come back with Kurow before going back to the Underground Ruins, you can talk to her again and discover that she was actually writing a song. The song's name? [[spoiler:Don't run from Destiny.]]

* AnachronismStew: There are near-modern excavation machines in feudal Nippon. And then there's the Moon Tribe and the [[{{Precursors}} ancient ruins]], which have futuristic RaygunGothic technology. The latter case is justified since the Moon civilization was already portrayed as more sophisticated since the first game.

unfortunate implications need citations.

* BabiesEverAfter: This is how the game ''starts''. Pretty much every main character from the previous game has had a kid in the last nine months.

* CutsceneIncompetence: Almost every single time Chibi attacks something in a cutscene, he doesn't use his weapons or his brush techniques; he just jumps at them and gets swatted aside for his trouble. Pretty much the only times where he's badass is during gameplay.

** The "Redo" function is there not only for the case you miss something or fail a puzzle and ends progressing when you don't want to, but it is also for the case you accidentally get yourself stuck in a place with your partner is in an area you cannot control them because they are hidden behind something you can't wrap your camera around. Basically, Redo is a Debug button.

** Chibi can basically slay demons with mirrors and holy beads. Not by reflecting holy light or anything, just by ''whacking them senseless.'' In a NewGamePlus, you can get a pair of crystals that shoot energy... circle... things.

* PointOfNoReturn: After you enter the Moon Cave [[spoiler: 100 years in the past]], and even though you have multiple hours of playing and cutscenes left, you will no longer be able to warp back and forth.

** A major plot point in the first game was to kill the Water Dragon in order to obtain the Dragon Orb - which in turn would allow Otohime to transform (there wasn't time to find a cure for the Water Dragon's madness). Now she is capable of transforming pretty much at will, without the Orb.

* TakeYourTime: Played straight except during the aforementioned ColossusClimb, which has a five minute timer. Any other time, feel free to run around doing sidequests while the world is in danger. It's not going anywhere. {{Justified|Trope}} before [[spoiler: you finish off King Fury, since Akuro's plans literally cannot go forward before then.]] After that, not so much.
