* AnachronismStew: The whole game is riddled with it, since it meshes Shinto mythology with actual historical records, and then scrambles them out of chronology. Nagi, Nami, Sakuya, Amaterasu and Susano are ''kami'' (deities) related to the birth of the world; Queen Himiko is based on a semi-legendary shaman queen from the Yayoi Period from 3rd century BC; Okuni is based on the famous dancer who invented Kabuki, Izumo no Okuni; Gen is based off Hiraga Gennai, a Japanese inventor that created the Elekiter, which was a small box that uses the power of friction to generate electricity; the Kaguya subplot is taken from the 10th century ''Tale of the Bamboo Cutter''; Waka (who speaks with a French accent) and Benkei are historical warriors from the late Heian Period (ca. 12th century) and the characters Issun, Rao, Mr and Mrs Cutter, Mr Flower, Orihime, Urashima and Momotarō are taken from latter Muromachi and Edo Period folk tales. Princess Fuse and the Satomi Warriors are from a 106 volume Japanese novel by Kyokutei Bakin.

Added DiffLines:

* TickTockTune: The Wawku Shrine is heavily clock-themed, and its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b24Yjac5_mE music]] reflects it perfectly, with ticking, rythmic beats and various clock sounds. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QxCn7p6nSY music]] heard during the fight against the clockwork owls serving as the dungeons' boss also has shades of this.

* WindmillScenery: The Gale of Shrine from Kusa Village is actually a massive windmill. Its purpose is to protect the village by blowing the Divine Wind upon it, protecting it from the Yokai. Unfortunately, it has stopped rotating, and the demons invaded Kusa Village as a result.

[[NatureSpirit Sakuya]], wood sprite and guardian of Kamiki village, realized that something needed to be done and revived Amaterasu's body so that she may defeat Orochi once more. However, both her weakening powers and Nippon's loss of faith in the gods has left Amaterasu greatly weakened. Adding the fact that Nagi's descendant, Susano, appears to be useless, it looks like it will be a severely uphill battle for Amaterasu to defeat Orochi...

In 2008, Capcom released a port of the game for the Wii which incorporated the Wii's motion controls for the Celestial Brush. Sadly this version removed the credits sequence because it contained the original company's logo.

Made by CloverStudios and released in 2006, ''Ōkami'' is an action/adventure game in the vein of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series, except using classic Myth/JapaneseMythology and folklore as the basis of its setting. Players take on the role of Amaterasu, a {{Physical God}}dess who takes on the form of a white wolf to battle the forces of darkness that are sweeping across ancient Japan. She wields a magic paintbrush that can be used to alter reality and is accompanied by a [[FairyCompanion tiny]] [[ExpositionFairy loudmouth]] named Issun. Amaterasu and Issun travel across Japan fighting evil, gaining new magical powers, meeting a cast of odd and eccentric characters, and living out the [[ExternalRetcon "true stories"]] behind many of Japan's most famous myths.
