* 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.

* LostForever:
** Anything in the Moon Cave or Oni Island. That dog and the crapload of clovers [[spoiler: in ancient Kamiki Village]]. Except for that one dog (who counts towards the Animal Tome), the only things missed are extra Praise and VendorTrash.
** For those who want to fill their bestiary, one or two enemy types only show up in one area of the game ([[spoiler:they're in the Doom Mirror family from when Amaterasu is shrunken in the Emperor's palace]]), and are absent from the arena-type locales where other seemingly limited-time-only enemies can appear.



* MacguffinDeliveryService: After going into [[spoiler: the bowels of the Water Dragon, and retrieving the precious Fox Rods, Rao appears and... [[GagBoobs convinces Amaterasu to give them to her]]]].

* OneTimeDungeon: The Moon Cave dungeon cannot be accessed again once your defeat Orochi and leave it. There is also Oni Island, the whole "miniature" sequence, the Sea Dragon's body and Past Kamiki. Fortunately for you, most of the potentially LostForever items in these places are mere VendorTrash. Exceptions include the dog in Past Kamiki (who counts towards your Animal Tome completion), and a few Doom Mirrors exclusive to the Imperial Palace. Fortunately, missing out on them doesn't deny you any tangible rewards (just true OneHundredPercentCompletion).

** In this game, door locks are sentient and The keyhole is their eye -- you open them by [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential shoving a key-shaped Exorcising Arrow in the eye.]] However, there is that small matter of how they happen to be '''demonic monsters'''. So it's totally okay. Note that the locks don't just sit there when you're running about; they taunt you (sticking their tongue out and laughing) if you try to open them by any other means. When you approach them with the key, however, watch how they sweat, panic, and struggle to avoid their ultimate fate. It almost makes you feel sad for having to exorcise them.
