Digging Minigame
Game Ōkami
Important participants Amaterasu
Mr. Bamboo
Location Sasa Sanctuary
Taka Pass
Sei'an City
Dragon Palace
The digging minigames happen occasionally throughout Ōkami's storyline, two of which are optional. When completed, it will allow Amaterasu to: Proceed with the story, receive a special item, or gain another brush technique. The objective of the minigame is to get the digging partner to the bottom of the level, while protecting them from danger. Once they have reached the bottom, they will signal Amaterasu to dig in that spot, which completes the game. There is also a time limit to which Amaterasu must complete the game.

The first game is rather simple, and the easiest. After helping Mr. Bamboo find the source of the hot spring water, water will fill up the spring. The sparrow thanks both Amaterasu and Mr. Bamboo and grants them freedom of using the hot spring whenever they want, much to Amaterasu's dislike. Shortly afterward, a constellation appears, which turns out to be Nuregami, the goddess of water. She then grants Amaterasu the power of Waterspout.

With Bingo's treasure hunt, it is rather unique. Instead of getting him to the bottom, Amaterasu must help him get all the way to the right of the level, horizontally, for the treasure is buried at the bottom right. Be extremely careful not to get him stuck at the bottom level when you are not close enough to the end. The reward for finding the treasure is receiving the treasure, which is a Sun Fragment.

The completion of the third game brings water back to Sei'an City. This allows Amaterasu to proceed with her journey. In the next area of Sei'an, there is a bridge that is inaccessible until Amaterasu restores the water, gives Benkei a fishing rod, and helps him catch the Cutlass Fish.

After aiding Kaguya with her quest, a rocket appears out of the ground. Kaguya, after saying her goodbyes to Mr. Bamboo and Amaterasu, boards the rocket and flies away to the moon. Before she departs, she gives Amaterasu the Fire Tablet, a Holy Artifact that grants her the ability to swim through lava. This is needed to see Queen Himiko, the ruler of Sei'an City.

The last game, like Bingo's Treasure Hunt, is unique as well. Amaterasu starts off at the bottom and must work her way to the top to join the Dancer, and then guide the Dancer to the bottom. After restoring the Mermaid spring's water, Amaterasu must then draw a swirling line in the middle when the dancers are running around it. Nuregami appears and grants Amaterasu another Waterspout ability, which is called Fountain. This power allows her to use Mermaid Springs for free, without using a Mermaid Coin.

It should be known that the most helpful Celestial Brush techniques needed for completing all the minigames is Cherry Bomb, Power Slash, Bloom, Waterspout, and Galestorm.
