This article is currently under construction, as we are
improving all other articles, and the wiki, along with it.

Throughout Amaterasu and Chibiterasu's journey, they will get the opportunities to upgrade many of their Celestial Brush techniques. Upgrades require the payment of a certain cost, or fulfillment of a condition in order to be unlocked. The upgraded techniques are available after the primary condition is completed-by the time Amaterasu or Chibiterasu reached a certain upgrade opportunity, the game will have already required them to learn the basic brushstroke to reach that point in the game.

None of them are necessary to complete the game, although they can certainly make gameplay much easier. Additionally, some Clovers, Stray Beads, and miscellaneous treasures cannot be obtained without the upgrades.
