The Namahage (「なまはげ」?) is a type of demon encountered in Ōkami. It belongs to the Namahage category of demons.


The Namahage is one of the variations of the Namahage category of demon, and it is first encountered at Kamui, outside of Oki' hut. It has a green mask, straw raincoat and a sign (the one used to mark locations, not the arrow signs for giving directions). It also has guards on its forearms and shins, and a simple pair of sandals.


The Namahage is depicted as the embodiment of loneliness in snowy lands. It seeks living beings and attack them. When one encounters a Namahage, is recommended that that person plays dead, as this demon regards the indolent as allies and cease their guards[1].

Bestiary entry

  1. "Namahage are the embodiment of the loneliness inherent in snowy lands.
    Raising a terrifying voice, they seek out and attack living things.
    If you cross paths with one, you should play dead.
    They regard the lazy as friends and are lulled into a false sense of security."


The Namahage is straightforward: First, farm it with Golden Fury and the Thief's Glove (Hidden strike glitch recommended, as the Namahage is very fragile). Then, Amaterasu has to scribble over it with her Celestial Brush in order to prompt it to flail its arm in a blind attack, which then she has to timely execute a Sub-Reflector counterattack to immediately kill it and gain a Demon Fang, then use Galestorm as its Floral Finisher.
