As I'm sure those who've taken a peek under the hood on any given article is aware, we don't use hex codes for too much on this Wikia. Instead, we use a little something called color templates! These were created by former admin, Clubchloe1 as a way to reduce unnecessary memorization for anyone who chooses to edit or start a new page. However, with these templates, there is sometimes a bit of confusion as to where to even find these templates, much less figure out which ones to use. That's what this blog post is going to try to cover today!
In a majority of cases, adding a color to a project is as simple as filling in the color parameter on an existing template via the Source Editor, which we highly recommend using on this Wikia. However, t…

Hello, Okami fans, this is Concernedalien11780. I have been a fan of the Okami games ever since Chuggaaconroy raised the game to levels of popularity no one ever thought it would reach with his Let's Play of the game that ran from December 2010 to May 2011. I got the Wii version because of him and it almost immediately became one of the best video games I ever played. Its graphical art style, sense of humor, controls, and use of Japanese mythology help make it one of the most original, moving, and high-quality video games ever made. After I moved the Wii, and the Okami game with it, to one of my family's beach condos, I bought the PlayStation 3 digital HD version on the PS3 I bought for Christmas in 2013. I didn't get very far in it and do…Read more >
Hello, everyone! I'm new here on this wiki. I found this picture of this enemy that seems to be scrapped in the final. It is called the "5-Headed Dragon". And it also related to the Flying Demon class.Read more >
So, we all know that Issun stole one of his grandfather Isshaku's paintings and passed it off as his own.Right? And we also know that Isshaku was there when Chibi fought Akuro. Right? And we also know that,in the beginning of Okamiden, when you use power slash on a painting in Susano's house, a painting shows up. Right? Plus, it is also mentioned that Susano was trying to hide the painting. Right? Well, my headcannon is that after the defeat of Akuro, Isshaku painted a picture of Chibi fighting Akuro. It's not exactly something you can just FORGET. And later, when Issun stole one of Isshaku's paintings, it was (conveniently) the one of Chibi beating Akuro. Issun gave it to Susano, who, at the time, would have loved a painting by a… Read more >
I was playing the game today and I noticed that amaterasu was pretty small, even smaller than canine warrior CHI! She only bigger than some of the shiba inus, and I thought well Japan's only wolf was like a foot tall and I thought hey it makes sense! What do you guys think?Read more >
I had a strange dream about Okamiden, Spyro and a tiny bit about Legend Of Zelda, The dream started with two woman who looked a lot like Camille and Camilla where in what my mind said was Agata forest, when some jellyfush-like thing killed them. Then, there was a strangely metalic area connected to Shinshu Field, which made me question how every location could fit into one another. Next, apprently, Okamiden was about sliding down slidesThen, there were two eels from Super Mario 64, and when I got rid of the wall, they fell in love. At one part, I was floating in an Ice river which had eyes and a mouth as a Zora from Ocarina of Time waiting to get to the top of the ledge. Next, I was hanging off a ledge, and a guy who wanted me to pay him …Read more >
I am truly and deeply sorry I haven't been editing for quite a long time. I forgot about the wiki and I also got my appendix taken out too (it was infected), and I have to recover. I am better now to the point I can be on the computer, but I still can't do much stuff. I am really, really, really sorry I have been neglecting my duties here. I hope to be more active here now!
Thank you very much for reading.Read more >
|bordercolor=|welcomecolor=|notice=no|color=no|innerbordercolor=|Welcome=Hello everyone!}} This is the new blog that Project Red link deletion has! Anyways, we are in need of temporary admins for this (since our only admin that actually worked on this project was demoted because he went inactive). If you know someone on the wiki (other than the staff themselves) who has worked great for us and you think that they can help get rid of red links, then recruit them in a comment on this blog post! Please note: We have a few rules to keep this "recruiting" thing fair, so please follow them as you recruit people for temp. adminship:
- Do not recruit yourself for being a temp. admin.

Sorry I haven't been active. I've been trying to fix some other wikis (the Webkinz Wiki, to be exact) and I somehow forgot about this place. Anyways, it's great to see that this wiki is ever growing. The good news is I will start editing here more.
Thanks for reading this,Read more >
Hello! So I just recently joined this wiki and hope to help make it better in the future. I know a fair bit about Okami and its sequel, but I wouldn't say I'm an expert. I guess I'll look for oppertunities to help out around here! Thanks for reading!Read more >
I am proud to announce that our [ monobook skin] is now rounded and the link colors are the same as the ones on the Wikia skin! With the help of the staff at the Monobook Wiki, they gave me some CSS code to make it rounded and semi-transparent so you'll have an easier time seeing the background image, PLUS the links at the top of the page are white so you can see them better with the background.
Now, please LOOK at the [ monobook skin], then comment on this blog post saying what you think of it!Read more >

Hey guys. and I just went on an major editing spree to revamp those old and get new, better styles on them, and I want to know what you guys think of it; here's the example style of it:
image place EXAMPLE TEXT
I personally went ahead once I thought about this style to try it out on an few new templates I would create, and this style works out very well for it because:
- It can have an image
- The old style just looked plain and boring, but this style makes our wiki's templates stand out from the rest
I've put an poll right here for people to vote, and if you want, you can comment below on why you dislike/like it!
- What's the point to this?
The notice templates before looked very very very boring, and I always wanted to find some way to make them bett…

Please note: We are currently in an conversion to using the Template:Roundy table and its components to make rounded corner tables for articles. Helpers are always welcome replacing the old code on articles for tables for the code. The appropriate color templates for the colors of the backgrounds is found here. Please remember to follow those color schemes as if inappropriate colors are used then they will be replaced with the right ones and users who do that will be warned.
Read the message above. We have recently created the template called "roundy table", for articles to have an easy time making rounded corner tables that are completely customizable (with colors too). Please remember to follow the for it I have chosen for certain articles. I…Read more >
I've become a bureaucrat at Ōkami Fanon! The adoption request when through (thanks to me because Pyrostar initially did have the link to the blog post I made :P), and I'm now a bureaucrat there! Please note '.Read more >
As promised, I went ahead and created our very own YouTube channel, which you can find here! In regards to the video guides I mentioned, those are still in the works. However, I promise to have at least the Sunken Ship uploaded by tomorrow, probably after classes.
Since the channel has just entered the mythical realm of the Internet and therefore lacks any substance (and because I lack artistic talent), I think it would be great if someone could design our channel's avatar and background. Leave your suggestions in the comments below, and I hope to see us thrive on YouTube!
This is a poll right here for people to decide what pictures that want used for the profile of our YouTube channelRead more >
NOTE: I have gone ahead and changed one of the wiki's CSS pages and a few things, including the staff's userpages link colors. This means, you may have to bypass your browsers cache to see the changes.
- Internet Explorer: hold down the Ctrl key and click the Refresh or Reload button, or press Ctrl+F5.
- Firefox: hold down the Shift key while clicking Reload; alternatively press Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl-Shift-R.
- Opera users have to clear their caches through Tools→Preferences
- Konqueror and Safari users can just click the Reload button.
- Chrome: press Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5
- The category module is now rounded
- The Chat and other modules are now rounded
- The colors for the links to the staff userpages are different
- The search bar is rounded
- User's who have not edited in a…

MediaWiki is better than Wikia in my opinion, because Wikia is more for looks than actual user experience.
- The banner at the top is still up there when you are not logged in - the problem with that is that readers will be seeing that and see that this information on the wiki was made by an community - this is a place for readers to get information!
- Wikia's software is based off of MediaWiki!
- Some HTML codes doesn't work
- You can't make your own wiki's help pages
- The wiki's can be synced to another wiki's account
- The wiki's created are made with the URL wikia.com , you can't have wiki's that are made on Wikia software separate URL names.
- Wiki's here can have only one point of view
- The pages content doesn't extend across the entire page
- Wikia has social f…

Due to my internet service towers being down, I will be inactive for awhile. I may make a few edits here and there, but only when I have internet. So yeah, don't try to contact me anyway that uses internet because I will probably not respond until a few hours later.Read more >
Guess what, we now have link templates! Umm..yeah the reason why I didn't create these sooner is because there was this glitch in the system that when a link template was used, it would make text after the placement of it in a preformatted box, but luckily, they fixed that! So, , see, I just used a link template right there!Read more >
I see the only active bureaucrat on the wiki is busy with collage, so I would like to become a bureaucrat so there's not one of those situations where there's no active bureaucrats on the wiki (which means no one can be promoted to admin), and so people can direct those questions to me.Read more >
Oh my god..one of my dreams I hoped for this wiki has happened: I figured out how to make the Template:Userbox rounded, and now it looks like a user tag (User Tags are templates on Bulbapedia that look like what the template userbox looks like now) =D
Please note though: You may have to resize your images on your userboxes due to this.
- Being complete
- Having many logged in users who actually stay...oh how nice that would be
- More active admins'
- Having rounded corners everywhere...
Due to a recent amount of bad edits, all pages right now are currently being protected so only logged in users can edit. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Also, for new users, you should edit in userspace pages to set your accounts into use and wait for 4 days, which then you will attain the status of auto confirmed user.Read more >
We are currently in need of translators - specifically of Japanese, because in the beta of Ōkamiden, when it was translated they did not translate the beta text! So the beta text is only in the Japanese version, and I would like to create an Ōkamiden beta article. So if you know anyone who can translate, or can do it yourself, feel free to help us!Read more >
So I've decided to start a new thing with the wiki, I'm gonna create a poll for each month, that asks stuff about the Ōkami series, so heres the first one:Read more >
Phase V is promoting Ōkami Wikia to appear on Wikia's main page! Tyrant did make a blog post for this already, but no one has written a comment since september! So heres another chance! We need the following for this promotion (Note: This promotion is not happening until all other phases have been situated!):
A good, detailed, long description for the wiki. It needs to be atleast a paragraph long. It needs to shout it that this is one of the best wikis for Ōkami! We need it to attract other users!
A good, high quality pictures. It needs to shout out ŌKAMI! We are using the wikis home welcome picture too, be this needs to be really good. If you are an artist, then don't hesitate on making a picture for this! We would love your pictures!
So, if you …Read more >
While I wait for Tyrant to get back to me with a response, I want to know: What would you guys think of me being an admin? I asked Tyrant because I see there is only 1 active admin - Tyrant, and I would like to help him with managing the wiki. If I did become one, well..I would give out news of the Ōkami series, or just news of the wiki, make many templates (as I have), give out answers to questions of other users of the wiki, and much more. The wikis my homepage, and my goal is to make this wiki to have be some of the best wikis in terms of template use, and look, and make it the best, thriving with users, Ōkami wiki! So what do you think? Do you think I would be a good admin?Read more >
This blog post was created to show the updates for the new projects (it will be updated regularly) - so check this blog post often!
- I have added the template to all pages in the Category:Ōkami Characters, so no need to add the template there!
- I have created a new article style for Character articles:
- If you know someone, or can make images transparent, we would love you to help!
- If you know how to or know someone that can convert any file type to PNG, please feel free to help (mainly JPG file types to convert)!
- Please note with the converting file type thing, if you are gonna convert some images, then please make sure …

Help us advertise to other users the new wiki projects! First off, I'll make a template that advertises the wiki's new projects, and for you guys who are reading this, spread the word! Lets make this the best Okami focused encyclopedia!
Use on an template with rounded corners , be sure that the templates code is between the and put in the parts with the < and > color templates.Read more >
I have made some new wiki projects for our wiki! (All of these I have gotten permission from Tyrant) The first one is: Project roundy, this one is to get all templates on this wiki with rounded corners. The second one is: Project improve, this one will be in phases to improve the wiki, on various things, such as style of articles, the look of the wiki, etc.Read more >
Well..I know this is kinda a late blog post, but here it is: Introducing: Color templates! These are in my opinion useful, as when we create templates that are colored, we don't want to remember the Hex code for the color don't we? Well, that issue is *kinda* solved! Color templates are made to be used on other templates, simply type in the template code for it like you would for any other, and it will make the color used on that template! Heres an example of how to use it:
tags are used on templates pages to prevent all code and text used after it from being included in pages that use said template) tags on them, so the only thing included in the template is the hex code for the color!

A full list of color templates can be found here.
It is important for a community to have their users tell more about themselves, so I've created a Userbox! The first of many I have created is Template:User Issun. I will create a page on their use. So what do you think? Aren't they great?
- Template:User No Issun
- Template:User No Manpuku
- Template:User Manpuku
- Template:User Template (the "user template" is a customizable user box, see its page for how to)
- Template:User Issun
- Okami Wiki:Userboxes
I've been creating a few templates and I want to know your opinion on them..so heres a list of them!
- Template:Roundy - This template is used for other templates to create rounded corners. If you would like to help me on my project of getting all templates on this wiki with rounded corners, then please see Tyrant first and ask him that you would like to (see the projects page once you have to see how to use roundy).
- Template:To be delete - Created this because this wiki needs a template notifying that a page is to be deleted
- Template:Tt - I like this templates functions (we Bulbapedians use this template A LOT, and so I figured, why not create one here, it might be quite as useful)
- Template:Refresh - To be used on categories to them
About a year ago, I pondered the idea of creating an official YouTube channel for Ōkami Wiki. I think it would be very beneficial to have at least one form of social media on our wiki that can help us broaden our userbase. In addition, the channel could assist our Ōkami and Ōkamiden walkthroughs by embedding video guides into the pages. Of course, we could always just use existing videos from random players on YouTube, but I feel it would be better if we collectively host our own videos for these pages.
This is just an idea, though. If you approve, disapprove, or have any other ideas on how we could use an official YouTube page, leave them in the comments below.Read more >
So as many of you know, Wikia has enabled the ability to give wikis a chance to be featured on the main page. This is a GREAT opportunity to get some traffic around here. Ever since I joined this wiki, I wanted to see it flourish and have a widespread community. Look at the Avatar Wiki for example. Don't you wish we could be just as big? There's fanon writers all over the place, 6,000+ pages of comprehensive information, a newsletter, thousands of contributors, social media, and so much more. We could have the same thing if we put some effort into it. So this is where I challenge you all.
I want to use the promote feature to try getting our wiki to Wikia's front page. It's time we get out of this cloud of obscurity, and you can help! To promo…Read more >
As some of you might have noticed, I haven't shown myself around for the past week. College started, which should be a no-brainer to most. With all that work piling up, it's going to be hard to find time to set it aside and come back to edit stuff. But as of yesterday, there's now another factor...
I have the guilty pleasure of unnecessarily investing too much time into a single game. If you've read my profile, you would know that I'm a huge fan of the Monster Hunter series, almost as much of a fan as Ōkami, if not just as much. On Monster Hunter Tri alone, which is considered to be the smallest game in the series in terms of content, I've invested over 2000 hours! It's all 'cause of its amazing online experience that added to its replay value, o…Read more >
Everyone, all of you have a favorite Divine Instrument Class. What is it? Say what is your favorite class and reason!
Before, I love Glaives, but because of them, I fell into a bottomless pit of poverty. Why? Because Glaives are too powerful, it cannot be used in farming (of course), but it also cannot be used with a Sub-Reflector, as it won't enable the Wailing Mirror ability. Also, back then, I'm not in favor of fighting demons relentlessly, so I just steer clear of Demon Scroll. However, the results of my acts were horrific. I was deep in poverty, having barely 200 Demon Fangs...
But now, things are different. I ditched Glaives and Rosaries (especially the overkilling Rosaries) and loved the ever-greedy Reflectors. Why? Because Reflectors…Read more >
So everyone...you know the effect of the String of Beads in Ōkami...and I despise and harbor a burning hatred toward it because of its powers. I am adept at farming, and 10x damage output means an end to my skills and knowledge. It is impossible to keep enemies alive for executing a full farming session, so the amount of Items (Treasures) and Demon Fangs obtained got decreased (even the Hidden Strike Glitch cannot help this), thus my Greed boils with rage and my conscience was utterly and completely erased from existence at such unbelievably demoralizing and unforgivable sins of wasting a full farming session (I'm not exaggerating)...
The only use for the String of Beads that I found useful is the ability to fully restore ink. I don't use th…Read more >
So everyone, you know that Ōkami and Ōkamiden have some really epic soundtracks. So what is your favorite ones? Mine are:
- Kamiki's Sorrowful Tradition--Sorrowful, yet very beautiful...
- Theme of the Celestials--Sorrowful, yet beautiful and full of hope for a future reigned by the sun...
- Theme of the Moon Tribe--It is
EDIT: Okay, so this isn't the very first blog on our wiki. You know, it pays to look around every once and awhile. Don't make the same mistake I did. Oh well, achievement earned. =D I thought I had enabled this feature a long time ago, but turns out I didn't, so... here it is again. xP So... how's your day? =D
No, but really. My very first day of college began today. I don't know if it will hamper my time to edit here, but I'll make time... somehow.
Some news as well, I posted an adoption request on Community Central. I may become a bureaucrat. ^^ Good thing, too; this wiki is in dire need of new leadership. There's only so much I can do as a simple rollback/sysop. We may need some other admins around here, too, and the only way to appoin…Read more >
Chibi's dad. The new "Who's the last boss of Okami?".
So, as I was saying, who's his dad? His dad, likee, probably dissapeared after his birth. My best guess is Jin/Ume, for the following reasons:
- He is a Shiba Inu, which is the breed they used in the ad.
- He is a Canine Warrior.
- His comments may hint that he doesn't want to reveal his true feelings.
- He is met at several points in the game.
So I'm gonna ask you guys: Who's his dad? put your answer in the comments.
Thank you.Read more >
Hey, this is basically just a test, but basically I've become the new bureaucrat and administrator of this wiki. Any questions feel free to ask me. Thanks.Read more >
