Bestiary entry

"'Ko' stands for 'wisdom'.
True wisdom is that passed on from one's parents and grandparents.
Rely on those who came before to show you the way in all things..."


After defeating Ninetails, Amaterasu can challenge the Canine Warriors, renamed Kusa 5, at the Gale Shrine for Stray Bead #35. Ko appears with Rei, Shin, Chi, and Tei, sharing the same attacks. When the battle starts, Amaterasu can immediately approach him and begins her assault with farming techniques. After the farming procedures are completed, Amaterasu has to focus on offense while simultaneously defending from the attacks of the other Canine Warriors. When Ko jumps into the air and perform a somersault before landing, his Wisdom Orb glowing, Amaterasu has to run to a certain distance, wait for Ko to lunge at her, and when he has covered half the distance between his original position and Amaterasu's, execute a Sub-Reflector Counterattack to gain a Demon Fang and defend from the attack. Other attacks of the Canine Warrior includes a series of multiple lunge and bites, a hole-digging attack, and a land mine attack. When sufficient damage is dealt, Ko will be stunned, a chance for Amaterasu to deal further damage.


  • He and the other canine warriors represent eight virtues of Confucianism.
    • In Confucianist thought, filial piety (kō) is the correct relationship between the superior and the inferior in the mark of the social hierarchy.
  • Ko is a Rough Collie, a type of herding dog from Scotland.
