[top]Tips & Strategies

Praise - Praise is earned by helping others, feeding animals, and restoring nature. Praise is how you upgrade your Divine Attributes and gives you your power.

Demon Fangs - these are used to obtain Holy Artifacts, I recommend you buy all of them as they will be extremely helpful. To earn demon fangs use Golden Fury, Brown Rage, and Floral Finishers. A Floral Finisher is when Ammy defeats a lower monster with a brush technique, Power Slash on Imps, Veil of Mist on wind enemies, etc. The easiest way to farm demon fangs is to first learn at least Golden Fury and head back to Shinshu Field. Just keep doing random battles, you can earn up to 5-10 depending on which enemies, by using Golden Fury then Power Slashing the Imps after defeating them except for Flying Imps which require Galestorm.

Holy Artifacts - These are divine items that you can equip to further help Ammy in her journey. All have to be purchased with Demon Fangs, except for the Fire Tablet, and you can only equip 3 at a time. Highlights are the Golden Ink Pot which grants double ink recharge rate, the Wooden Mat which allow Ammy to heal herself by offering yen. (useful for the Devil Gate Trials in between rounds), the Water Tablet which allows the godly power to walk on water (BADASS), and the Thief's Glove which allows Issun to steal items from enemies.

[top]Roadmap

1. Beat Lechku and Nechku - Defeating the Twin Demons guarantees everything will be ready to acquire all collectibles and the micellaneous trophies. You'll obtain all of the story trophies in the process. Remember DO NOT board the Ark of Yamato unless you have earned every other trophy possible because you can not turn back.

2. Collectibles and Micellaneous- After Wawku Shrine go and finish collecting anything you may have missed. By now the only thing you may have ignored is the Most Wanted Lists, digging mini-games, travel guide, treasures, and stray beads.

[top]
Yomigami
Learn how to use Rejuvenation.

After a 20 minute series of cutscenes you finally gain control of Amatarasu, enter the Cave of Nagi and after a short while you come to the river. To the right is a hill, walk up it to restore a constellation. You get a cutscene and the power of Rejuvenation. This Brush Technique allows you to restore objects that are broken or missing.

The most versatile of Brush Techniques, both against monsters and outside of battle. You learn Power slash 5 minutes after Rejuvenation, cross the river and head towards the gate ahead to reach the next area, Don't forget the Astral Pouch. When in the next area follow the path, collecting the stray bead here, and restore the statue of Nagi to receive Power Slash.

[top]
A Village for a Peach
Return Kamiki Village back to normal.

After acquiring Power Slash exit the Cave of Nagi and cut down the fruit from Sakuya's limbs. A cutscene shows Kamiki restored and returned to normal, somewhat. Afterwards walk around the village and examine the "statues", Issun will then have you head to the highest spot. Now draw a circle in the sky to use Sunrise, after all you are the sun god. Kamiki will be fully restored.

[top]
Descending Descendant
Meet Susano.

Susano's home is next to the exit to Kamiki, across the bridge. First you must talk to the merchant pushing a large boulder blocking the exit to Kamiki. After battling the imp possessing him go to Susano's house, enter the basement, and then tackle Susano to wake him up.

[top]
Sakigami
Learn how to use Bloom.

After leaving Kamiki your first task is to head to Hana Valley, there is only one path to go due to the curse zone. Make your way through Hana Valley and once you return the sphere to it's shrine and use sunrise to grow the Guardian Sapling another constellation will appear. Now you can use Bloom and the first order of business is to use it on the Guardian Sapling.

[top]
Enemy in the Gates
Defeat enemies inside of a Devil Gate.

After restoring Shinshu Field it is time to explore and restore any nature that needs restoring and feed any animals, after all you need all of that Praise.

In Shinshu Field there is the house of Tama the Pyrotechnic. From Hana Valley go forward following the wall till there is a ramp to your left. You'll face a new enemy here.

When he attempts to launch his fireworks you must draw the object you saw on the wall, the Q. When done right you get a fireworks display and another constellation. Cherry Bomb is not on;y used for blowing up cracked walls but it is also useful in battle.

[top]
Hasugami
Learn how to use Water Lily.

This constellation will appear after you have restored Sakuya, A.K.A. Konohana. Restoring Sakuya only happens after you have finished exploring all parts of Shinshu Field, marked on your map as red circles, restored the Cherry Trees using Bloom, and help Mr. Orange in the Konohana Shuffle. Issun will take you to where a treasure chest lies after you earn Water Lily, draw a circle on the water and it will unlock.

[top]
Let's Rock, Baby!
Fight Waka.

Your introduction to Waka the Half-Baked Prophet as Issun calls him is right after you restore Agata Forest. Fighting Waka is simple, quick, and easy. When Waka throws his sword Pillowtalk quickly use Power Slash on it to send it back thus stunning him, then Power Slash him. He will do a combo sword attack as well, avoid it and his color will drain, letting you Power Slash him. After your battle the trophy will unlock.

[top]
Tsutagami
Learn how to use Vine.

In Tsuta Ruins you will come across a room where you must use Bloom to restore dead grass. There is a pink, floating flower in the center of the room, a Konohana Flower. This is the room where you learn Vine, after restoring the dead grass and the water is flowing again. This is the last of the three Flora gods.

[top]
Big Ol' Flower
Exterminate the Spider Queen.

The Spider Queen is quick but you're faster. Use Vine on the hooks of her flower-like abdomen, three vines will do it. When she is stunned and her flower opened Power Slash the eyeballs till she dies, yes a very easy boss indeed. After the ensuing cutscenes the trophy will unlock.

After the enemies are all defeated and your conversation with Princess Fuse is over the trophy will unlock.

[top]
Nuregami
Learn how to use Watersprout.

This Celestial Brush Technique is in Sasa Sanctuary. The hot spring is dried up and Mr. Bamboo will request your help to restore this, take note this is the first digging mini-game. Once complete Nuregami's constellation will appear, complete it, earn it, then test it and the trophy will unlock.

Once done you will learn Galestorm.

[top]
One Mean Dude
Defeat the Crimson Helm.

As the trophy name implies Crimson Helm is indeed one mean dude. First you must remove his armor to start actually hurting him, do this by attacking him. Rosaries are a good weapon against him as it gives you distance from him. Once his armor is off use Galestorm to extinguise his flames. Now he is open to attack, keep at it until his health drains. Susano will show up and you must use Galestorm to spin him around as he delivers the final blow to Crimson Helm. After the cutscenes the trophy will unlock.

[top]
To the Moon, Ammy!
Enter the Moon Cave.

After Defeating Crimson Helm it is time to go to Kamiki Village for the festival.

Head to the village and talk to the villagers around Susano's house. After the cutscene chase after Kushi. After talking to her head to the Moon Cave. Once there another cutscene, afterwards you'll be in the Moon Cave and the trophy will unlock.

Repeat what you did before except this time you will attack the stunned head. Once its health is drained move on to the next one, etc. Once done, a cutscene.

Take note Agata Forest is a temporary fishing spot but the same fish that are in Agata Forest can be caught in Sei-An City. While you can catch Agata Forest fish in Sei-An City I highly recommend you catch the Agata Forest fish in Agata Forest as they are harder to catch in Sei-An City.

Sniff 'Em Out
Defeat all monsters on the Wanted List.

There are four Most Wanted Monsters lists each with five monsters to slay, the catch is these monsters don't appear until night time. The lists are Shinshu Field, Taka Pass, Ryoshima Coast, and Kamui. To obtain the Shinshu Field list make your way to the Moon Cave, enter the building next to the shrine gate and talk to the priest Mika inside. He will give Mika's Monster List. Once they are all killed return to Mika for a stray bead. To get the Taka Pass list head into the Kusa Village inn, big building right in front of you. Head to the second floor and headbutt the door down the hallway. Leave the building then re-enter the second floor and headbutt or Power Slash the screens on the right side. Talk to the woman, Haruka to obtain Haruka's Monster List. Same deal as with Mika, slay the monsters then return for a stray bead. After removing the accursed mist from Sei-An City head into the restaurant at night and talk to the traveling warrior Masu. He will only give you the list at this time because he'll be drunk out of his mind. Head outside of the city and the same deal as the last two times. In Kamui there is a house just north of the merchant at the base of the path to Wep' Keer. Go inside and talk to Wali to hear his plight and obtain his monster list. As soon as all monsters are slain the trophy will pop but don't forget to turn in the last list.

[top]
All Creatures Great and Small
Complete your Animal Tome.

Lucky for you that you do not have to feed every animal in the tome to 100%. All you have to do is feed each animal once and you can practically do this without trying. It does benefit you to feed as many animals as you can, shooting for 100% with each animal is a good way to ensure a Cherry Tree Rank for Praise Earned. Each type of animal is impossible to miss unless you diliberately avoid them, you will encounter every animal at least once while collecting treasure and stray beads.

[top]
Teach an Old Dog New Tricks
Learn all god techniques to fill up your Technique Scroll.

There are three dojos, one in Shinshu Field, one in Ryoshima Coast, and one in Kamui. You can learn every technique in Kamui so only learn techniques that will help you or you need, like Eagle Jump, Fleetfoot, and Digging Champ are essential to continue the game. You will need a lot of Yen, roughly 3 million in total, before you learn everything. I recommend you, for now, only learn the battle techniques related to your favorite type of weapon to use.

[top]
From Imps to Demons
Complete your Bestiary.

You can earn this without really trying, while searching for beads, Devil Gate Trials and treasures you'll encounter every enemy in the game. Take heed, there is at least one enemy you can miss, it is the Fire Doom Mirror. It only appears in the Imperial Palace when you shrink down with the Lucky Mallet. If you enter the Emperor to fight Blight then you are too late. The Fire Doom Mirror is an optional enemy so purposely fight the Demon Scrolls in the Emperor's room. When in Shinshu Field (100 years ago) make sure to fight all the demon scrolls as the clay enemies are missable.

[top]
Barking Up the Cherry Tree
Earn a Cherry Tree rank for each item in the Total Results screen.


The Final Results screen involves Deaths, Enemies Defeated, Money Gained,Demon Fangs Found, and Praise Earned. The good news about this is the only concern you'll have it not dying which is easy. Make sure you have plenty of Vengeance Slips and Holy Bones to avoid dying when facing bosses. As long as you are cautious then you'll get all Cherry Trees.

[top]
Lupine and Divine
Earn a Cherry Tree rank for each item in the Results screen.

Easily done at the very first battle at the Cave of Nagi, just kill the Imps quickly and avoid damage as one hit will negate a Cherry Tree. Each battle you encounter has a ranking system in two categories, Time and Damage. Basically as stated You have to slay the monsters in a blazing fast time and with no damage, essentially like the god you are.

[top]
Out of the Gate Swinging
Defeat all enemies at all three Devil Gate trial caves.

When you find the chambers with the Devil Gate Trials you will fight against a Bandit Spider, they can be slain the same way as the Spider Queen. Once slain exit then re-enter the chamber for the Devil Gate to appear. The Devil Gate Trials consist of ten rounds each. The first 2 aren't too hard but the third is where you more than likely will die if you aren't paying attention. Make sure to have at least 50 Vengeance Slips and 50 Steel Soul Sakes for the third gate as the last three rounds have you fighting Wakas, Evil Raos, and the final round is against THREE Nagis that take almost zero damage. The first trial is located in Ryoshima Coast located behind the temple, you had to go down this path to restore the Guardian Sapling. It is an alcove with cows nearby, the digging spot is on the ledge. The second is in N. Ryoshima Coast among the cluster of islands where the fisherman is located, easterly from the fisherman. The last is in a cave below the entrance to Wep' Keer in Kamui, jump down then Cherry Bomb the wall.

Who Let the Dogs Out?

After clearing Oni Island return to the Gale Shrine in Kusa Village. In the room with the pool in the center head right down the tunnel to meet Princess Fuse and the Satomi Canine Warriors. She will offer a challenge to fight the 5 Canine Warriors, be prepared that this is a tough challenge so make sure to stock up on holy bones. The fight consists of three rounds, survive all three and not only will you net a gold trophy but a stray bead and some Praise as well.

Dog Eat Dog
Beat Hayabusa's turnip-digging record.

After restoring Kamiki talk to the little boy Mushi, he's the only child in the village. talk to him twice to challenge Hayabusa's digging record. Take note Mushi's mother will clobber you while digging which will end the contest. To prevent this use your Celestial Brush to cover her in ink, this stuns here. Keep digging until you get the Oddly Shaped Turnip. Grab it then head back to Mushi.

[top]
Diggin' It
Complete five digging mini games.

Three digging mini-games are required to complete the game, only two of them are optional and the last one is the hardest. The first digging mini-game is in Sasa Sanctuary with Mr. Bamboo, you'll learn Waterspout afterwards. The second one, missable, is after you beat the Gale Shrine. Talk to Bingo, who is next to the entrance to the City Checkpoint, then use Galestorm to remove the pile of leaves next to him. Talk to him again to start the mini-game, you're reward is a sun fragment. The third digging game is Sei-An City, head to the upper-left portion of Commoner's Quarter and talk to the carpenter Naguri to begin the digging game. The fourth digging game is back in Sasa Sanctuary this time in the Bamboo Grove. Talk to Kaguya to begin the mini-game. The fifth and final digging game is in the Dragon Palace, the hallway to the right as you enter which also houses a Stray Bead. This one is odd as it is a reverse digging game. First you have to climb up to the top then dig back down to the bottom.

Eat My Flower Trail

Ida is in Shinshu Field, Hayate in Ryoshima Coast. After restoring Shinshu Field go to Ida, North of the Nameless Man's Kiln, and give him a Traveler's Charm after the fight with the monsters. You won't be able to race him immediately but you'll know when you can race him when he has an exclamation point above his head. Hayate can not be raced until you lift the accursed mist on Sei-An city. Hayate is running around near the dock. To unlock the trophy though you have to do all 3 races for each of them, 6 in total. They aren't hard, just run towards then and tackle them as they turn.

Dog Gone Fast
Win the race against Kai.

After Wawku Shrine head back to Yoshpet and talk to Kai. Racing Kai is tougher than Ida and Hayate, especially at the last part with the snowballs. Beat her just once to unlock the trophy. Take note there are shortcuts that are marked by wooden posts.
