* Rao seeming to not understand Issun's various euphamisms for her... endowements can make sense given that she's likely been raised formally away from people who would want to comment on her figure like that. [[spoiler:Until you find out the truth that is, since Ninetails' true form is bestial, having breasts is something she's probably not used to so she forgets they're there, and even if she has disguised as a human before like Kitsune in myth are known to do, she probably hadn't had to have become one as stacked as Rao was before.]]

* Praise is used to level up your health and ink capacity, at the end of the game [[spoiler: you receive praise from everyone in the game, and get levelled UptoEleven]]

* When you explore the sunken ship with Rao, you come across seals that require you to guide Rao's power to dispel. It seems like a gameplay and story segregation function allowing you complete control of story progression. [[spoiler: The brilliance comes in when you realize Rao doesn't have any holy power, since she's a major demon. You are using the real Rao's tools as a conduit for Amaterasu's own holy powers. It's not just that the fake Rao doesn't fight enemies or cursed zones herself, it's that she can't- or at least, not without giving herself away.]]

* Regarding [[spoiler: Yami's]] first battle theme- on the OST, it usually lasts about seven minutes. The maximum length of time a solar eclipse can last? About seven minutes!

* Ever questioned why Rao has one eye covered whenever you see her? [[spoiler: That's because Ninetail's true form is missing an eye too...]]

** It was also a puzzle how Rao could breathe underwater. She can even talk when she meets Okami and Issun in the Dragon Palace garden. That's quite a feat even with holy powers. [[spoiler: Then again, a being like Ninetails would probably be able to bypass the need for oxygen somehow. Either an oversight, as it's not explained how Issun and Amaterasu can breathe either, or a clue that Rao isn't really Rao.]]


* ''{{Okami}}'' has the final boss [[spoiler: Yami]], who doesn't seem to look remotely evil, and his forms seem to just be an addition to his power, until one realizes his forms are the evils humanity has performed, [[spoiler: Destruction, Burning, Gambling, Energy being used for evil purposes, and the hand of which does this evil]], some people either interpret [[spoiler: Yami's True form, a fish]], as being an ironic evil, or things start out innocently enough, but then [[{{StartOfDarkness}} everything goes bad]]. So [[spoiler: Yami's]] not so much a sign that ScienceIsBad, but those who would use it for evil purposes. --@/{{Etheru}}

* For ''{{Okami}}'', there's [[spoiler: Yami]]. Yes, he looks harmless, even with his armor, but consider the fact that he has weapons that people didn't have access to at the time, put yourself back into that age, think about what happens when Yami wins and pretty much destroys the world...

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Yami's]] multiple forms also make a kind of sense. When you regain the powers needed to rip open each shape and deplete its health bar, [[spoiler:Yami]] moves to a version that isn't susceptible to any of them. By the end, you've got all of them anyway, so it just goes to its most powerful form.


** The line about the fish-thing (seal fetus?) inside Yami can be taken further: the fish represents a person (or possibly nature in general) being surrounded by the negative aspects of humanity and thus being twisted into something evil. It's basically innocence being corrupted by the evils of humanity. Why else would it be a small thing almost always surrounded by Yami's different forms? And Amaterasu having to attack the fish-thing to lower Yami's HP represents destroying the corruption.

*** It gets worse when you consider that [[spoiler: Yami ''may have caused WorldWarII'']].
*** Um...how?



* The giant seaweed monster from the sunken treasure ship gives you a ton of praise for killing it. The praise is coming out of the monster its self and not from the surrounding areas like it usually does when you take out a demon gate or other large monsters... It wanted to die.

Added DiffLines:

** Also Yami's forms seem to represent the ''seven'' deadly sins of man.


* Okamiden: It makes sense that Kuni's special field ability is that he can fight off smaller enemies with his sword when you realize that out of all the party members, Kuni has the most experience in fighting due to his sword training.

[[spoiler:That is, until we find out about Kurow's double-edged hidden sword, but even then Kurow only shows to use his flute as a music attack during fights prior.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In Okamiden, right before you head out to find the Knowing Jewel (in an underwater temple), Kurow ditches you, with the justification that he can't swim. However on a second playthrough this troper realized, [[spoiler: Earlier in the adventure, Kurow asks a fortuneteller about his purpose, which she is unable to divine and though he is disappointed, he quickly lets it go. However, at the end of the game he reveals that he was afraid of finding out, so his reaction to the Knowing Jewel could have been him making excuses to avoid confronting the truth.]]

Added DiffLines:

* I always thought it odd that Ammy was able to return stars to the constellation before getting the rejuvenation technique. Then I realized that Ammy is the goddess of the sun, which is a star.
