* AcclaimedFlop: It's hard to think that the most beloved work of CloverStudios is also the one that led to their dissolution… ([[PlatinumGames for a little while]]).
* NamesTheSame:
** Kuni (''Kuninushi'' in the Japanese version) appears to be named for Okuninushi, one of the lesser known kami.
** The name "Ōkami" was first used by Capcom in [[{{VideoGame/Commando}} Senjou no Okami]] shoot'em up series.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Initially, the game would have been [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d6/Okami-compare.jpg much more realistic looking.]] However, this was changed early on, since the the watercolor look helped convey the concept of restoration.
** Ammy could fire laser beams from mirrors, and had to fight monkeys and panthers. These can be seen in the videos, if you have more than 30 hours of playtime.
** According to the art book for the game, Ammy could have transformed into a dolphin upon diving into a deep body of water, and into an eagle upon launching herself off a high cliff.
