|Secret Snowflake Brush technique||100%|
|How to: You will also unlock a secret brush technique after getting the Blizzard brush technique.

A snowflake of ice with it is size depending on the asterisk drawn,will appear with icicles falling around it. Use this on townsfolk to temporarily turn them into snowmen.|
|How I beat Blockhead Grande!||100%|
|First I took a piece of paper and placed it over B. Grande and outlined him. Then I recorded the order of the dots on my VCR. *** YOU MUST HOLD THE R1 BUTTON AT ALL TIMES! From there I just used the pause button and drew the circles and placed numbers from 1-8 on each circle in the order that they came. Then I drew them on the enemy. This took me a few tries but it worked and was much simpler than playing the memory game with this guy.|
| If you want to unlock the listed bonus you need to complete the listed task:|
| Description: Here is some vital info to avoid hours of frustration on Blockheads:|
Hit the points in order (i.e., in the order they appear). You can use a dry erase marker to number the spots, or you can imagine a 4 by 4 grid on the painting screen --
-- and each of the brush points are in one of those cells, so if you dot the center of that imaginary grid cell, you successfully "hit" that point.
|How to: Win the game and save when promted after the credits. Now, reload the cleared game file to start a new game. You will have all previous stats and weapons, except the fifth of each type. The Peace Bell, Lucky Cat, Wood Mat, and Ink Pot are the only Holy Artifacts that will transfer over. Brush techniques do not transfer either.|
|Susano & Kushui Aftermath||100%|
| Description: Ever wonder where Susano and Kushi got to during the festival? Well if you find them, Susano will praise you and call you his buddy or brother. Here is how you find the couple:|
1) It has to be during the festival, after you defeat Orochi.
2) Go to the sacred tree in Kamiki Village. Go inside there and find where you got your cut technique. The cave where a giant statue of Susano's ancestor is. Where you had to in the sword.
3) The couple will be standing in front of the statue. There may be hearts coming from their head. If you chat to them they will begin to mumble in embarrassment.
|Money & Fangs||100%|
| You have to have the Golden Fury for max demon fangs.|
When you are in the room with the bell but before you find all of the ingredients for Orochi's appetizer you can headbutt the bell and a blue demon carpet will appear.
Enter it and face one black imp and 2 red imps. Power slash the black imp's skulls, hit him once, use Golden Fury for the 1st demon fang then dispatch him and use power slash when he is in his dying animation for 3 more fangs. Repeat on the red imps for 2 more demon fangs a piece. You can quickly rack up 8 fangs plus anywhere from 2000 to 3000 gold each time (or until you are bored)
|Earn Demon Fangs||100%|
| How to: Demon Fangs can be used as currency to purchase some of the best items in the game. Here are the methods by which you can collect them.|
Finishing Moves: After defeating an enemy, it'll hurl upwards in a slow motion death throw. Execute the right brush technique on the enemy during this animation to earn a demon fang. For imps, perform a Power Slash. For bud ogres, perform Bloom.
Well-Timed Counter: When you are able to equip a reflector instrument as a secondary weapon, you can perform counters on enemies as they attack you. If your timing is perfect, you will earn a demon fang.
Golden Fury: Use the Golden Fury attack--learned from the sensei in Shinshu Field--to knock out one demon fang from each enemy you fight.

|Secret Rain Brush technique||98%|
|How to: You need to defeat Ninetails. Now go to the queen's temple. Draw a line with the water on the ground connecting the pillars together.|
|*** If you want to do this trick then you need 2 weapons. Get the Devout Beads weapon and equip it as your main weapon. Equip any other weapon as your secondary. After you are in a fight, press Triangle just before your opponent attacks. Your secondary weapon will come out front as a parry attack. If you do it right, you and your enemy should stop, then fly in the air. You will then start spinning with your enemy. After you hit the ground most enemies will die. This makes an easy kill.|

|How to: Purchase the Golden Fury attack from the sensei at Shinshu Field. The move costs 100,000 Yen, but it is well worth it--Golden Fury lets you pee on your opponents for damage. Really!|
|Hint: Walking on water.||88%|
| If you where supposed to be kill Bligth and have come a bit longer, go and visit the|
emperor of Sei-an and he have an water tablet for sale. (100 demon fangs) when you buy it, weild it as an Holy africat, go to the lake and jump out. You will finding yourslef standing on water.
|In my opinion, I think that ninetails is the coolest looking boss in the whole game. now he will try to charge at you with his sword. just jump out of the way. his other attack is when his tails will spew poison. if you want to deal a bit of damage on him which I bet you do is use the new inferno power, the one that lets you use fire whenever you want. you must do it quickly or ninetails will draw on your canvas. when you see ninetails hold up his sword, use thunderstorm to draw the thunder to the sword. this will electrify ninetails, splitting him into beings. attack the beings until they pull back together. if you were able to kill some of the beings, you will notice that ninetails is missing some tails now. keep repeating the procedure until ninetails has only one tail left. now you'll see what he really looks like. use cherry bombs on him if you want. now when he charges at you, he'll run out of breath and stop for a short period of time. if you can, attack him at that point. you can do a great deal of damage whenever he raises his sword and use thunderstorm.|

|Blight is my least fav boss to beat. Orochi is more fun. start off by making some room between you and blight. when you see him stop, use your new power veil of mist. this will slow him down allowing you to attack him. you will see that his color is gone, which means you can slash him. after that a sword will come flying out and get stuck in the middle of the room. attack the sword. after a number of hits, poison will surround the sword and it will probably hurt you too if you're too close. now there will be times when there are swords surrounding blight. if you look closely, you'll notice that there is one blue sword. slash it. the sword will get stuck again, letting you put in more damage on blight. keep following the strategy until you beat blight!|
|Lechku and Nechku||69%|
|You cant straight out attack these two. you must wait. now the owls will use a few attacks, each one can be countered with a brush technique. when you see a bud over one of their heads, bloom it. purple balls, slash. a sword, thunderstorm. a bomb, inferno. the sword will knock out Lecku for some time and this is your time to use Oki. press triangle and pull back with the analog. let go of the triangle button and Oki will remove the color from Lechku. power slash and Lechku will fall down, allowing you to attack. use the same technique with Nechku. if you hear them hoot, they will attack. this attack can be countered with veil of mist. or if you want, just jump out of the way. eventually you will knock out one of the owls and this will make things easier for you. I know that the camera kind of glitches because it doesnt know which enemy to focus on. but when you kill one owl the glitch will be gone. now you can focus all your attention to that owl. follow the strategy as before and you will be one step closer to the last boss.|

# Secret Rain brush technique
Defeat Ninetails, then go to the queen's temple. Use the water on the ground to draw a line connecting the pillars together.
# Secret Snowflake brush technique
After obtaining the Blizzard brush technique, you will also unlock a secret brush technique. This technique simply requires drawling an asterisk (just an "X" with either a horizontal line intersecting the middle or a vertical -- not both). A snowflake of ice (size depending on the asterisk drawn) will appear with icicles falling around it. Using this on townsfolk will temporarily turn them into snowmen.
# Secret Thunder Shower brush technique
After obtaining the Thunderstorm brush technique, draw a thunder-bolt symbol (resembles a four-jagged zig-zag line), and a group of thunderbolts will fall onto enemies.
# Primary Lotus
Equip any Reflector as your sub weapon and use Gold Dust on it. Then, press Triangle as soon as an enemy attacks.

# Urine attack
Get 100,000 yen, then go to Shinshu Field and buy the Urine attack from the Sensei. This enables you to urinate on your enemies.

This attack requires a rosary weapon (Devout Beads, Beads of Life) equipped as your first weapon and a reflector weapon (Divine Instrument, Snarling Beast) equipped as your second weapon. While in battle, wait for your opponent to do a physical attack. As soon as that happens, press Triangle. Most enemies will die instantly. This is a good way to get Demon Fangs.

# Blade of Kusanagi
Defeat Ninetails to get the Blade of Kusanagi.
# Devout Beads
At Agata Forest, go to the area next to the cave (where the psychic is located). On your left should be a narrow strip of land which leads to a cave. At the end will be a tree. Use the Bloom Brush. Once the tree has bloomed, there will be a treasure chest. Open it and you will get the Devout Beads.

# Control loading screens
At the loading screen that features a trail of paw prints and a picture of Issun, press X to make the paw prints larger. On other loading screens, repeatedly pressing X will display paw prints. You can also add Demon Fangs to your inventory by pressing X on the longer loading screens. Press X over screens that feature a trail of paw prints until Issun appears. Big paw prints and a Demon Fang will appear. Quickly press X as fast as possible until a Demon Fang appears to add it to your inventory.
# Hidden Shiranui statue
At the entrance to Kamui (in the area where Oki's house is located), go into the middle section of the area. You should see a snow covered rock. Power slash it a few times, and a statue of Shiranui will appear, similar to the one in Kamiki Village at the beginning of the game, except with the Solar Flare divine instrument.
# Changing ice statues
When you enter Kamui, go to the right of the Guardian Sapling. You will find the Kokari boy and his dog Ume. To the right of them is the third dojo. There is a big pile of snow close to it. If you power slash it enough times, an ice statue of Issun x1000 will appear. Destroy it with Inferno, and go in the dojo then go back out. The pile of snow will reappear. If you power slash it again, a statue of Sakuya will appear. Keep repeating this process for a new statue every time.
# Turning Oki people into wolves
Draw a circle around any Oki townsfolk to transform him or her into a wolf. Draw a circle around the townsfolk again to change them back into a human.
# Finding Inabi
The animal lover at Ryoshima Coast complains that he has lost his pet named Inabi. Inabi is at North Ryoshima coast or on one of the islands near North Ryoshima Coast underground. Inabi is the black and white rabbit that is with all the other hares. Note: Inabi is Capcom's madscot.
After you defeat Blight, the cursed zone will clear. At the Sei-an exit, turn left. There will be a building next to a locked building. Go inside of the building. You will be inside of a kimono shop. Go to the room next to the cashier, and there will be a man who is a kimono designer. Talk to him, and he will ask for a new design. Draw whatever desired on the kimono. After you do this, the villagers will all have the design you drew on it. The walls will also have the same design.
# Defeating Bandit Spider
Bandit Spider is an optional Boss. To fight Bandit Spider, learn "Digging Champ" from Onigiri Sensei. Then, go to Ryoshima Coast. Go past the Monk Temple and follow the trail. There is an area with two brown cows and a calf. There will be a rock surface for you to dig at. Dig there, and a hole will appear that has a purple mist coming out of it. Go into it, and you will be able to fight Bandit Spider. Bandit Spider is a lot like Spider Queen, except it attacks more often by throwing energy balls. Draw three lines to his spinnerets, then attack the lamps. Also, when it starts spitting out a metal sac (with a fuse on it), draw a line form the fire to the "bomb" and you can attack the lamps again using the same method. Continue doing this to defeat Bandit Spider.
You can fight Bandit Spider again once you reach North Ryoshima Coast. Ride the Orca to one of the islands and you will see a rock surface. This requires the technique "Digging Champ". Dig there and you will fall into a hole. If you defeat him, you will get a Sun Fragment.
# Defeating Blight
Blight has a very difficult defense. It will take awhile to defeat him. He will crouch when he does his speed attack, which is almost impossible to dodge. Use the Veil of Mist Brush to slow it down. Blight will lose its color. Attack it when he is in this state. He will become a pile of armor with a glowing blue sword. Equip the Tsumugari and use a Veil of Mist Brush so that you will have more time to attack the sword. Use Excorism Slips and your Tsumugari to attack the sword. Keep doing this to defeat Blight.
# Defeating Crimson Helm
Avoid his attacks. Remember, he uses fire based attacks. If you get burnt, used the Gale Storm Brush. When he starts to stand up and burst into flames, start to attack him using your Devout Beads. He will reveal himself as a flaming skeleton. Use the Gale Storm Brush to put out the fire, then he will be just a normal skeleton. When in this state, attack him using your Devout Beads. Continue doing this to defeat Crimson Helm.
# Defeating Lechku and Nechku
When fighting Lechku and Nechku, you will have Oki on your side. Lechku will do about the same thing as Nechku shoot dark fruit and ice. Defeat Nechku using the same technique used last time. Lechku, however, can freeze time, allowing Nechku to attack. Use a Power Slash to stop Nechku. Lechku will also wield a Nine Strike like Ninetails used. Draw a thunderbolt to it. When they malfunction, uses Oki's ice bow, bite him, pull, then fire. You and Oki will attack him. Continue this to defeat Lechku and Nechku.
# Defeating Nechku
Since Shiranui is on your side for this battle, it should be over quickly. When Nechku starts shooting dark fruit, use Power Slash to fire them back at Nechku. He will start to malfunction. Knock him out with a Power Slash. You and Shiranui will then attack Nechku, using brush techniques for support. Nechku will sometimes shoot out ice. You can avoid this by dodging them.
# Defeating Ninetails
Ninetails may attack by ramming into you, whipping you with his tails, summoning foxfire, or squirting out pools of acid. Your brush techniques will not usually work on him either, because he has the power of a brush god as well. He will cross out all your attacks, or make a weapon out of your drawing. For example, if you draw a circle, he might cross it out or turn it into a cherry bomb. When he raises his Nine Strike, draw a thunderbolt to the sword. He will turn into nine Maidens. Defeat some of them. It might be wise to use some Exorcism Slips. He will lose more tails the more enemies you defeat. Sooner or later he will turn into a normal one-tailed fox. You can use brush techniques and any attack on him. He will also lose his brush techniques.
# Defeating Orochi
Orochi will be protected by a barrier. Your attacks will not do any damage to Orochi. You should be able to dodge the slow moving flames on the fire head. Later, use the Waterspout Brush to pour the sake into the Orochi's mouth. Do this twice and one of the Orochi heads will get drunk. Walk onto the Orochi's neck and get to the bell. Attack the bell until the bell's health gauge reaches zero. The barrier will shatter and you must get the all the Orochi heads drunk. Do the poison and darkness head last. You will now be able to attack the heads when they are drunk with your weapon (preferably the Beads of Life) and brushes. Continue this until Orochi is defeated. At the end of the fight, Susano will appear. Use the Power Slash Brush wherever the kanji (Japanese symbol) is, and the Orochi will be defeated.
# Defeating Spider Queen
First, just dodge her attacks. Try to keep a far distance from her. Later, she will start spinning a web ready to do a belly flop, or starts to spit webs from a gray sack. Use the Power Slash Brush on the web she spins or the gray sack and she will fall down. She will have some hooks at the tip of her spinnerets. Use the blossoms around the stadium to do the Vine Brush and connect two vines to the end of the hooks. Her thorax will open up and eyeballs will appear. Use your Devout Beads to attack the eyeballs. This will do damage to her. Keep doing this to defeat Spider Queen.
# Defeating True Orochi
Use the same method on the True Orochi as you did with the normal Orochi. However, his gold armor gives him higher defense, but he does not attack as much. When he does attack, it does a lot of damage. Use the same method you used with the normal Orochi to defeat him.
# Defeating Yami
You will not have your brush techniques at first. Just continue to attack Yami. Watch out for his saw blade attack. He will also smash holes in the ground. Watch out for them until you get the Rejuvenation brush. You can now fill in the holes. Eventually you will get the Power Slash brush. You can use your weapon (preferably the Tundra Beads, Thunder Edge, or Solar Flare) and Power Slash. When Yami lets his guard down, attack him. You will soon get the Bloom brush. Just use Bloom on him to reveal his controller, and attack it. Continue this to defeat Yami.
Yami's second form is a ball that burst into flames and chases you around at first. When Yami is not a fireball, attack him. To hit it easier, place a Rosary weapon as your sub weapon with a Reflector as your main weapon. You will obtain the Cherry Bomb Brush. Draw a cherry bomb to blow Yami into pieces, and attack the controller. Later, you will get the Waterspout Brush. Use this to draw water from the fountain to Yami when it is on fire. Later you will get the Crescent Brush, which you can use to summon Susano and slice Yami in half. Then, you can attack the controller.
Yami's third form is like a slot machine. Basically, use a Power Slash to stop the machine and it will either shoot out cursed fruits, fireballs, ice blocks, thunderbolts, solar energy, ink, and the controller. The middle slot will be the most powerful. If the middle slot is fire, it will shoot out fireballs that are nearly impossible to dodge. Use the Gale Storm Brush that you will get later to put out the fire. If it is ice, it will shoot out ice that will make a frozen path on the ground. If you touch it, you will freeze and lose health. Later, you will get the Inferno Brush back so you can melt it. If it is lightning, there is nothing you can do but run. Do the same if it is cursed fruit, as it will put you in an erupting cursed zone that could kill you in a short period of time. Later, when you get the Veil of Mist Brush, you can use Power Slash to make it land on any slot and get health from the phantom. Continue this to defeat it.
Yami's fourth form is similar to a ball with arms and legs. Yami can shoot missiles like its first form could, but they are a lot more accurate this time. Sometimes he will float in mid-air and pursue you while exploding. When his controller pops out of the ball, you can attack him. Sometimes he will lay on one side, making it easier for you to attack the controller. You will only have three more brushes to get: Catwalk, Thunderstorm, and Blizzard. When you get Catwalk back, there will be some platforms that you can walk up using the Catwalk Brush. There will be some treasure for you that may help you during battle, although once you use the Catwalk Brush on all three of the platforms, you will not be able to use them again. Soon you will get the Thunderstorm Brush. Yami will sometimes transform his arms into Nine Strike swords, so you can shock him. You can then defeat him easier. You will get the last brush, then you will defeat Yami later.
During your fight with Yami, you normally draw a sun in order to battle. However, if you draw a moon crescent instead, Nagi/Susano will fly from the heavens to deliver a falling blow to Yami.
# Defeating True Yami
First, you will not have enough power to use melee attacks and brush techniques. When you get enough ink, draw the sun to weaken True Yami. The controller will fall out of its hand. You will have a chance to attack him. Use the Solar Flare, Thunder Edge, and Tundra Beads. Brush techniques will work well, but should be used sparingly. True Yami has very powerful, almost one-hit K.O. attacks. He will start a tornado, that once you are trapped in it, has no escape and will eventually kill you. Use the Gale Storm Brush to blow away the tornado, but True Yami will sometimes take away the sun so that the tornado will pursue you without you being able to use the Gale Storm Brush to blow away the tornado. Just run if this happens, and wait until you are able to draw a sun and attack the controller. True Yami may also throw balls of lightning. Dodge them. A barrage of just a few will kill you. He may also bring down a rain of fireballs that could kill you. If you manage to get hit by one, you will burn up and slowly lose health. Use another Gale Storm Brush to put the fire out. If he uses ice, it will do a lot of damage and freeze you. His most powerful attack is his great laser attack. Get your camera to where you can see a full view and avoid it. When the controller is visible inside the giant hand, you can attack it easily. Use a lot of health items and just attack the controller when it is visible to defeat True Yami.

|Drunk on the 100th year||64%|
|When its the festival go to the part where the 3 men are sitting and use watersprout on the sake in the barrel and put it over karude, mr bamboo and the nameless man and they will get so drunk they will pass out! he he he|
|I know a lot of people have trouble with the blockhead at oni island so here's my little cheating way of getting passed that guy. JUST DONT BEAT HIM!!! instead go to the big room where he's next to. on one side there's that floating paper on the other is a cracked wall. jump as high as you can next to the cracked wall. while in the air draw a cherry bomb. then jump again and press R1 and you will see a blossom. draw a vine and you will be next to a closed gate. jump back to where the cracked wall was. Dont fall of the ledge! go to first person view and look up. you will see a row of jars on a ledge. jump as high as you can to that ledge. walk down the row of jars. SLICE THEM! dont smash them with your head or you'll risk falling off. at the end of the ledge you'll see the floating paper. jump down toward him and you'll see that you're right behind the blockhead.|
|Now for those who played this game for the first time are probably thinking 'Omg its orochi how do I beat him' first dont get intimidated by his size and how bad everyone was saying before. when the fight begins move to the left until a head with a brown hat sees you. this is the earth head. what he'll do is try to smash you with his head. just jump out of the way and you'll see that the idiot has knocked himself out. attack it. there will be a cut scene. now you will be in front of the fire head. use wind to redirect the fire. when you see him roaring. put sake in his mouth with waterspout. do it one more time on him and he'll be down. move to the left and knock out the earth head. continue to the left and knock out the poison head(use same strategy as the fire head) now jump on the poison head and go up to the bell. attack the bell until orochi gets up. jump off when he does. now here's how to take out the other heads: darkness-bloom the buds before they hit the floor air-make some wind water-jump on the lily pads and attack him light-avoid the lasers thunder-avoid the lightning and attack when there's a question mark above his head. once all that is done, you are half way there. now you have to take out all the heads. when you see a head moving his mouth, it means he'll attack which happens to be a snake-like strike(since he is a serpent) then he'll roar, letting you put more sake in his mouth. he'll be knocked out for some time. attack him with your reflector. you can also use power slash, inferno, and waterspout. I suggest using waterspout on the fire head and inferno on the water head. it will kill them faster. after you defeat all the heads, draw a moon in the sky after a very short cutscene. now use powerslash after susano slices the heads(which I think is pretty cool) you only have to slice 7 heads. susano will deal with the last one. congrats! you defeated Orochi and you get a new weapon. (i wont spoil it)|
|Beat Spider Queen||45%|
| To beat the Spider Queen in the Tsuta Ruins follow this procedure: |
The first attack she'll start with will be a a long trail of spiderwebs so just run away from it. Next she'll try to charge at you and smash the ground where you are at. Just run right out of there until she's done. Then there will be a wierd spider egg thing on her head. Power Slash it and she'll fall down to the ground. Use the vine power on the hooks and she'll open up to reveal eight eyes. Use your reflector to attack the eyes. When you see her shaking, get off IMMEDIATELLY! You will get stuck inside and lose some health. Then repeat the process.
|Crimson Helm is the next monster boss. in this fight there will be eight orbs circling you, which means you can take eight hits before crimson helm can start hurting you. his main attacks are charging at you and trying to slash you w/ his swords. you must take out his armor first. to do that you must attack him repeatedly. when his armor falls out, use the wind power to cool him off. Now attack! after a few hits his armor will come back on again. repeat the process until you beat him. well guess what's next? turns out the guy calls in some friends to kill you. now susano will come to 'save' the day. whenever he slashes a head, just use your power slash right after. when all the fire heads are gone use the wind power repeatedly to help out susano. now crimson helm is no more!|
|Unlock Art Gallery, Jukebox, and Theater||41%|
|To unlock the art gallery, jukebox, and theater you need to beat the game first. Once you beat it, the next time you are on the game title there will be a new option called Presents from Issun. Go on that and you will be able to see the art galleries, listen to the game soundtrack, and watch clips of Okami.|

then draw a line from the green holy smoke and fill it with it.The cursed zone would be disappeared, animal will come and you will earn praise. (10-30 praise earned when doing this)
