Stray Beads (「はぐれ珠」?; Hagure tama) are the component beads of a prayer necklace that are scattered all over Nippon in Ōkami. There are 100 Beads in all, and collecting all of them creates the String of Beads, an extremely powerful Holy Artifact Amaterasu can use.

In Ōkamiden, there are Treasures called Stray Beads, but they do not form a necklace and their only purpose is to be collected and sold. Instead, what composes the String of Beads are Issun's Masterpieces, replacing the role of the original Stray Beads. There are a total of 5 sets, each set containing 10 pieces - thus there are only 50 pieces in total, making for much easier collection than Ōkami's.

Locations

The list below includes various conversations that are technically optional, although on first encounter they provide useful clues about what to do next. In many cases (but not all), the key action can be performed to get the bead without actually requiring the previous conversation to take place. However, in some cases, conversation is necessary to acquire the bead.

Most of the hidden beads, especially the buried ones, can be found within treasure chests unless otherwise noted.
