* GodNeverSaidThat: Or more accurately, God Never Intended That. Many fans got hyped when Creator/HidekiKamiya stated that the series was coming back on [[https://twitter.com/nakamura193/status/1185203513543933953 a tweet]] on Creator/PlatinumGames' twitter page on October 2019. However several months later, [[https://www.nintendoenthusiast.com/hideki-kamiya-okami-sequel-not-happening/ he admits that he got carried away with it and never actually meant that the series is actually coming back]], but rather, he just wants to make a new game.


* ApprovalOfGod: Despite not working on it, Hideki Kamiya has given his approval to [[PolishedPort the PS3 remastered version]], going as far as to tell someone to play that instead when a fan told him he bought the Wii version. He seems to have similar feelings towards the [=PS4=], Xbox One and PC remasters as well.

* BigNameFan: Creator/HideoKojima, and his enjoyment of the game was the main influence behind him asking ''Creator/PlatinumGames'' (which is made up of former Clover Studio members) to develop ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''.


* WordOfDante: LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}'s statement of the meaning of the various forms of Yami has taken hold in the fandom, even though it hasn't been officially corroborated. It's gotten to the point that the moderators of the [[TheWikiRule Okami Wiki]] will instantly ban anyone who tries to add that information to Yami's page, as they're so sick of reverting it. Chuggaaconroy himself deeply regrets his statement, as they were inspired by a random [=YouTube=] comment on a video of Okami's soundtrack, and he never got around to researching Japanese mythology to see if there was anything to support this, assuming that he had already confirmed it when the time came.

He later offered a new interpretation of Yami that revolved around evil starting small and snowballing with time, but preempted it by openly stating that it was simply his personal theory and not based in any official statements.


** Initially, the game would have been [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWlNUIH-KRA much more realistic looking.]] However, this was changed early on, since the watercolor look helped convey the concept of restoration.
*** Another reason, more pragmatic, is that the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 simply could not handle a more detailed version of the game (without cutting out objects or making the levels smaller).

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: The game's FMV credits sequence was hit by this twice. The 2008 Wii port axes them entirely due to the inclusion of the Clover Studio logo, which couldn't be removed in time due to Ready at Dawn not having access to the master assets for the video. While all versions of the 2012 HD remaster ''do'' add back in the credits (save for the removal of the Clover Studio logo), the insert song "Reset" is replaced outside of Japan by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6ExaCxoMGY a remix]] of the Ryoshima Coast BGM.

* CreatorBacklash: Creator/HidekiKamiya [[https://twitter.com/PG_kamiya/status/603823178494775296 doesn't look back on the Wii port too fondly.]]]] Much of this stems from the removal of the credits sequence due to legal issues regarding the use of Clover Studios' logo; according to Kamiya, the credits acted as a summation of the development team's final thoughts, emotions, and messages about ''Okami'', and that its removal was immensely disappointing to him.


* FollowTheLeader: Silent protagonist? [[ExpositionFairy Occasionally annoying but ultimately lovable tiny sidekick]]? Fish catching game? [[DontGoInTheWoods Dangerous forest that humans will get lost in]]? BarrierMaiden? [[HeartContainer Fragments of extra life]]? References to shinto myth? [[spoiler:TimeTravel?]] The resemblance to [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]] is uncanny. WordOfGod is that the game was directly inspired by the ''Legend of Zelda'' series.
