Added DiffLines:

* BunnyEarsLawyer: A good number of characters in the game qualify, particularly Amaterasu, Susano, Waka, Tama, the Oranges, ''several'' of the Canine Warriors, and [[spoiler:Nagi]]. Amaterasu in particular stands out the most on account of being the main character: who knew that the ditzy, impulsive, and frankly airheaded wolf could kick so much ass?


In 2012, Capcom announced an HD version of the original game for the Playstation 3 supporting Move controls. In 2017, Capcom announced a newer HD version of the original game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with 4K compatibility, releasing on December 12. In 2018, Capcom announced a port for UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch which incorporated both motion controls and touch controls.

Added DiffLines:

* NonindicativeName: The English translation takes some liberties with some monsters' names. For example, the Nue, a Japanese youkai with the face of a monkey, legs of a tiger, and body of a tanuki, was renamed Chimera after an unrelated monster from Greek mythology and the Kamaitachi became [[PolterGeist Poltergeists]].


* TheThingThatGoesDoink: Found mostly in Sasa Sanctuary and used in puzzles involving the Waterspout technique.

* TheThingThatGoesDoink: Found mostly in Sasa Sanctuary and used in puzzles involving the Waterspout technique. In a bit of DevelopersForesight, international versions of the game added dialogue of Issun telling the player how they work to make the puzzles involving them easier.


* IstanbulNotConstantinople: The game's setting is referred to as Nippon, the Japanese name for Japan.

Added DiffLines:

* GenderBlenderName: The monster Saburo (or Saburoumaru in the original Japanese version) is explicitly stated to be a woman [[WasOnceAMan (or at least used to be one)]], despite the masculine name. In fact, the literal meaning of the name is "third son", with -maru being a common suffix in male names.

Added DiffLines:

** The Japanese name of the final boss is Tokoyami no Sumeragi, literally "Emperor of Everlasting Darkness". However, the English translation shortened it to simply Yami, which means "darkness".


** Of all the regular brush techniques, Catwalk is far and away the most useless, as it only allows Ammy to wall jump when near a very specific statue. It's quite telling that every brush has a use during the final boss, ''except'' for Catwalk. One can only wonder if this was intentional, given that the main character is a dog.

Added DiffLines:

* InterchangeableAntimatterKeys: Justified. The locks are demons, and the keys are enchanted exorcism one-use tools, which destroy demonic locks.


* ArtisticLicenceReligion: When Amaterasu being associated with wolves (she wasn't; her animals were roosters, crows, horses, kitsune and snakes) and Susanoo not even being her brother are the least offensive changes...

** For a Japanese pun, "Okami" can mean either "wolf" or "great god". Not to mention that the title can be used as part of an alternate spelling for Amaterasu in Japanese, as well as referencing the kind of paper used in woodcut artwork, which is basically what the game is built on.

** The only hint that the Ice Storm brush technique is gained along with Blizzard is in the fight with Ninetails, who would occasionally use it when the player pulls up the brush screen. You can paint a "snowflake" (an X with a horizontal line through the middle) which causes ice shards to rain down and freeze multiple targets. The size of the drawing determines the strength of the attack and how many ink pots are consumed.
*** This one is especially nasty because up until that point, the "screen-filling attack" version of the brush techniques have all been upgrades that were the result of sidequests. If a player doesn't think to try what Ninetails did, or doesn't remember how it went, or thought that Ninetails was attempting to use Mist Warp before cancelling the brush screen, they may well spend hours searching Nippon in vain for a sidequest that isn't there.

It also doesn't seem to be a very intelligent being either since it doesn't talk.
