Clover pic

A clover.

Clovers (「四つ葉」?; yotsuba; a plant having four leaves on one stalk) are special plants that are found all over Nippon in Ōkami. They can be found as green shafts of light seen rising up from the ground. They are easily visible, especially at nighttime. Digging in the center of the light unearths four-leaf clovers. Although the clovers are initially dark and wilted, the Bloom Celestial Brush technique will revive them to full health and yield Praise for Amaterasu.

Clovers at the start of the game will only give Amaterasu about 5-10 Praise. However, the more she progresses in her journey, the more praise she gets. This is because Clovers further on need special Brush Techniques and items to reach them. A tough to reach Clover might even give out up to 50 Praise. Some Clovers can only be found in single tour areas so these will yield a lot of Praise and need to be bloomed before the area is left. This is the case of three Clovers found under Iron Rocks beyond the Spirit Gate.

Any hard patches of brown ground also contain Clovers but Amaterasu will be unable to dig through it until she learns Digging Champ. Clovers are also found under Iron and Crystal Rocks, however they cannot be reached until Power Slash 2 and 3 are obtained. The Clovers found under Iron Rocks give out 40 Praise and the Clovers found under Crystal Rocks give out 50.

  • The Clovers in Ōkami are believed to be a reference to Clover Studio, who developed the game. This theory is further proved because the tune they make when dug up is very similar to the tune played during Clover's opening title.
    • Due to Clover Studio's ending, this may also be the reason why clovers do not appear in Ōkamiden, and are instead replaced by Dandelions.
