* XMeetsY: One could very well say that this game is "Creator/HayaoMiyazaki meets ''Zelda''".

Added DiffLines:

* BloodlessCarnage: No blood or wounds to be found anywhere in the in-game graphics... which only makes the ''immensely'' gruesome 2D cutscene art stand out even more.

** It's also pointed out in-game. At the beginning of the game in Kamiki Village, if you try to [[spoiler:use Sunrise without exploring the village, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Issun will wonder what you're trying to do, "raise the sun or something? That's impossible!"]]]]

* HeroicMime: Amaterasu, being a wolf, doesn't talk; she makes various wolfish noises and finds other ways to express her emotions instead. Issun, Waka, and certain others can understand what she says. It's implied that she speaks telepatically, as she didn't bark or anything when Issun mentions that she said "Resolve". It's also implied that she says what you choose with yes/no choices.

* UnwinnableByDesign: Averted. While the tutorial message on a SavePoint tells you to keep multiple saves in case you get stuck (implying a {{Sierra}} title), it's actually impossible to become "stuck" anywhere. But you might want to use a separate save file after the clearly-noted PointOfNoReturn anyway.

** Shortly before your first fight with him, Waka shouts "[[Franchise/DevilMayCry Let's rock, baby!]]" The second time you fight him, he shouts "[[ViewtifulJoe Just go for it!]]"
** One of Tama's explosives is dubbed the "Midnight Wonder Boy", an allusion to "Midnight Thunder Boy", the name of a chapter in ''ViewtifulJoe'', which introduced Alastor.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Zig-zagged with Issun, who is completely deceived by [[spoiler:Ninetails]] and is suspicious of several sympathetic and noble characters (until he sees that they are beautiful women, that is). On the other hand, he was the first besides Sakuya to join Amaterasu.
** To be fair, he was starting to get suspicious of the latter spoiler until Ammy [[DistractedByTheSexy took a good look at her]] and handed over the item in question.
** Also out of all these people he mistakenly trusts, he never trusted [[spoiler:Waka.]]

** The Inside of the Water Dragon, on the other hand, is explored to get a magical Crystal Ball in order to give it to Queen Otohime and, right after its completion, a series of dramatic events occurs and leads to the entrance to Oni Island, the next main dungeon.

* NiceHat: Waka. Pity it's destroyed.
** Orochi too, wears eight helmets on each of his heads, with a symbol and ''kanji'' of its element.
** Most in the game, really. From fruits to animals to bits of buildings. Queen Himiko gets bonus points for a hat that's on [[IncendiaryExponent fire]].

* NoCutsceneInventoryInertia: Most cutscenes always show Ammy with the Divine Retribution reflector equipped, regardless of whether it's her current main weapon. This includes the cutscene immediately after obtaining the Solar Flare, despite that the Solar Flare gets equipped automatically. On the other hand, if you equip a [[AndYourRewardIsClothes Karmic Transformer]] in a NewGamePlus, it ''is'' reflected in cutscenes....

* PowerUpLetdown: Not all of the bonus brush techniques you can get in sidequests turn out to be as useful in combat as they sound. Especially since some of them only have effects on certain enemies (like using Deluge on a Great Tengu).
** Considering all the awesome powers [[spoiler: your past self Shiranui]] demonstrated, you'd think that you'd also get to use them when your [[spoiler:{{Eleventh Hour Superpower}}s activate during the final phase of the final boss]], but nope, all you get is a fancy glow.

* PuzzleBoss: All of them. Much like any Zelda game, your most recently-acquired brush technique will prove vital to stunning/damaging or otherwise battling each major boss. (For instance, if you're not a pro at the brush technique [[spoiler:Veil of Mist]] by the time you beat Blight, you're in for a tough battle. Hint: [[spoiler: Slash his swords when he throws them.]]) Midbosses (like Waka), on the other hand, are more action-oriented.

** Rao's theme deserves mention too, consisting primarally of a women sighing suggestively and some rather erotic sounding music. Bonus points for it playing every time you talk to her, even in non-scripted conversations.
