  • "Strange guys, huh? If they haven't been seen lately... I wonder if that means they are hiding out somewhere?


  • Waka was the person who employed Moon Tribe technology in Nippon, most notably computers with holographic screens in the Tao Troopers' headquarter, and only he can operate these devices[3].
  • In Ōkamiden, it is possible that the Tao Trooper's headquarter had moved away from Sei'an City, because even though the power spring extension of Waterspout is not present in the game, Chibiterasu could have reached the building via Vine. The developers of the game may have also chosen to ignore the headquarter entirely.
  • The Tao Troopers Abe and Kamo are based on the famous onmyōdō practitioners Abe no Seimei and Kamo no Yasunori.
  • The symbol seen on Abe and Kamo headgears is a pentagram (「五芒星」?; gobō-sei), that represents the Japanese five fundamental elements (「五大」?; godai): Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Void. The pentagram is also closely associated to Onmyōdō.


  1. "OK, the Tao Troopers have been around for over 200 years, but there's no mention of any captain before Capt. Waka!"—Abe (Ōkami)
  2. "What ever happened to that strange Waka guy? His accent was weird. I haven't seen him in almost... almost a year I guess. He lead a bunch of oddballs known as the Tao Troopers. I'm not sure, but I think they used to guard that Moon Cave."—Guardsman (Ōkamiden)
  3. "There's also the matter of that magical projection device... Only he knows how to use it."—Abe (Ōkami)
