Okiku, Star Apprentice, is an RPG Maker VX Ace game, by Marrend.

It's about the titular apprentice, Okiku, collecting 6 ingredients so her master, sorceress Ogiwara Ryoko, can try out two summoning spells to figure out which one works.


This game provides examples of:

  • Actually Four Mooks: The Preexisting Encounters' sprite in the Mountain Pass can represent 2 or 3 orcs.
  • Absurdly High Level Cap: 99. Where the Final Boss can be defeated at be defeated at less than level 50.

  • Cap: Item stacks are capped at 99.
  • Elemental Embodiment: A Fire Spirit is the Final Boss.
  • Entendre Failure: When Okiku uses a Sexual Euphemism and is misunderstood by a boy in Nishino:
    Boy: Is it just me, or is mommy's tummy getting bigger?
    Okiku: It sounds like she had some fun.
    Boy: We played together just yesterday, but...
    Okiku: Uhhh, that wasn't exactly what I was talking about!
    Okiku: Oh, never mind, Don't worry about it.
  • Evolving Attack: Okiku has six skills, that evolve into more powerful forms with enough uses.
  • Flavor Text: In the equipment that Okiku wears:
    • Pointed Hat: There's an unspoken rule about wizards wearing these.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: Referenced when Okiku tries to enter locked houses:
    (This door is locked.)
    (What, am I going to barge in and take everything that isn't nailed down?)
    (What kind of low-life would do that?)
  • Life Meter: As shown in the battle screens and menus, depicted by an orange/yellow bar. Shows Hit Points as Current / Max.

  • Mana: The fuel for magic, as indicated by the Ether-type items that restore it, and Mana Anchors that prevent its leakage, and the skills that attack and restore it.
  • Mana Meter: As shown in the battle screens and menus, depicted by an dark blue to light blue bar from left to right, going black as it depletes from right to left. Shows Mana as Current / Max.
  • One Bullet at a Time: Only one shot of the Wand of Blasting can be out at a time. Okiku is rendered immobile while it's active, to ensure this.
  • Our Orcs Are Different: They're in the Mountain Pass of the Isle of Tamuro.
  • Preexisting Encounters: They're floating black cloak-like blobs with red eyes.

    Oh. You.
    Bye!
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Or at least the hat, as indicated by the Pointed Hat's Flavor Text: "There's an unspoken rule about wizards wearing these."
  • Sexual Euphemism: Used by Okiku and misunderstood by a boy in in Nishino:
    Boy: Is it just me, or is mommy's tummy getting bigger?
    Okiku: It sounds like she had some fun.
    Boy: We played together just yesterday, but...
    Okiku: Uhhh, that wasn't exactly what I was talking about!
    Okiku: Oh, never mind, Don't worry about it.
  • Summon Magic: The use of the items that Okiku retrieves for her master.
  • Stealthy Teleportation: The Warp Whistle Teleport Orb has no effects other than taking Okiku place to place. It "wisks you off to a place you already visited", as the item description says.
  • Taken for Granite: When Okiku is calling the Petrify skill, she says she's turning enemies to stone.
