* AdaptationDisplacement: One of the weirder examples. A lot of Westerners (especially gamers) only really know Shinto mythology from this game, despite the latter taking a lot of liberties with said mythology. So when other entertainment properties take inspiration from Shinto mythology, like when ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'' added Amaterasu, a lot of people questioned why she isnít a wolf.

* PolishedPort: The UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, UsefulNotes/PlayStation4, UsefulNotes/XboxOne and PC HD versions all really make the game shine on modern displays, in addition to being fine ports on their own. The latter three versions also allow for the game to be played in 4K via the [=PS4=] Pro, Xbox One X or a high-end PC.

Rather tellingly, Creator/HidekiKamiya himself (who doesn't think highly of the Wii version) approves of these versions of the game despite having no involvement in their creation.



** The HD release for the [=PS3=] really allows the beauty of the game to shine.

* BestBossEver:
** Ninetails, the [[DiscOneFinalBoss arc boss]] of Western Nippon. After having her [[spoiler:screw around with you in the guise of Rao]], you finally get to encounter her in her true form. And it turns out she essentially fights like Amaterasu does: uses a demonic copy of a Divine Instrument as well as her own demonic Brush techniques. It's a fast-paced, action-packed fight that feels like two rivals fighting on equal footing.

** Entering Wep'keer in Kamui for the first time can be rather tiring as it will involve [[InfoDump a lot of exposition]] from four different Oina. There's still quite a bit to explore as with any other areas, but story-wise it will take quite some time before you finally get to the Yoshpet forest.

* ArcFatigue: The quest to find the eight Satomi Canine Warriors to enter the Gale Shrine can be a drag considering the lead-ups to the other dungeons are generally brief. First, you need to find four of the dogs while using the Canine Tracker to [[DowsingDevice dowse]] for them, all of whom are located in different corners of Kusa Village, then feed them meat. After fighting the fifth one in a miniboss, you have to [[{{Backtracking}} revisit previous areas]] all over Eastern Nippon in order to locate the last three dogs, all of whom challenge you to more fights which are essentially the same as the fifth. Your only mode of fast travel at this point isn't particularly efficient, so the amount of running around involved can get rather tiring.

* AccidentalInnuendo: The Molester[[note]]Which is pronounced Mole-ster, not Mo-Leh-Ster[[/note]] sidequest. No worries, you're just playing Okami's version of Whack-A-Mole.



** That stupid Molester "Whack-a-Mole" game in Taka Pass - although it can be mitigated by using bombs instead of headbutts.

** Amaterasu/[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Wolf Link]] is a surprisingly common pairing on deviantART and ff.net, likely due to the long list of similarities between the two games - see FollowTheLeader below.

* FollowTheLeader: [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Come on, you don't see it?]] Silent protagonist, [[ExpositionFairy occasionally annoying sidekick]], fish catching game, BarrierMaiden, [[HeartContainer fragments of extra life]], [[spoiler:TimeTravel]]. If it wasn't for the importance of sake and [[GagBoobs Rao]], people would mistake this for a Nintendo game. Amaterasu even has the same repertoire of equipment as Link. (WordOfGod is that the game was directly inspired by the ''Legend of Zelda'' series.).

* ThatOneLevel:
** Yoshpet isn't called the Forest of Confusion for nothing. In the beginning of the dungeon, there are thorny holes you have to jump through. Sometimes, they move around, so it's a bit hard to get through without taking damage. There are corrupted trees chucking poisonous pollen at you, and if you come too close to them, they'll just whack you with their trunk instead of taking the time to throw pollen at you. Some levels require you to jump across patches of ice. If that wasn't already annoying, there's acid water in between the little islands, so if you fall off, you have to start over. Then, icicles start falling from the sky, and in a couple of areas, you have to dodge gigantic snowballs. And you have a time limit.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Any time you revive a Guardian Sapling, it releases a flurry of foliage, and everything TheCorruption has tainted springs alive again, capping it off with a [[SceneryPorn wide shot of the purified area]]. It's quite a sight to behold, be it on [=PS2=] or Wii.
