- Okami has the final boss Yami, who doesn't seem to look remotely evil, and his forms seem to just be an addition to his power, until one realizes his forms are the evils humanity has performed, Destruction, Burning, Gambling, Energy being used for evil purposes, and the hand of which does this evil, some people either interpret Yami's True form, a fish, as being an ironic evil, or things start out innocently enough, but then everything goes bad. So Yami's not so much a sign that Science Is Bad, but those who would use it for evil purposes. --Etheru
- The line about the fish-thing (seal fetus?) inside Yami can be taken further: the fish represents a person (or possibly nature in general) being surrounded by the negative aspects of humanity and thus being twisted into something evil. It's basically innocence being corrupted by the evils of humanity. Why else would it be a small thing almost always surrounded by Yami's different forms? And Amaterasu having to attack the fish-thing to lower Yami's HP represents destroying the corruption.
- Alternatively, Yami can be seen as what happens when science goes too far. Without going into very detailed biology, at some point in the human embryo's development, the fetus looks roughly like a fish. So Yami could very well have been created with good intentions, however eventually it became corrupted. A bit of a stretch, but that's how this troper sees it.
- Remember the prayer slips Rao used when you were on the ship? Tobi looks the same as those, doesn't that tell you a lot about "Rao".
- The theme that plays during the second part of the final boss fight with Yami is called The Sun Rises. Considering that Amaterasu is the sun god and, and that Japan is called the land of the Rising Sun, the song is basically saying that Ammy is taking back her world from Yami.
- Praise is used to level up your health and ink capacity, at the end of the game you receive praise from everyone in the game, and get levelled Up to Eleven
- For Okami, there's Yami. Yes, he looks harmless, even with his armor, but consider the fact that he has weapons that people didn't have access to at the time, put yourself back into that age, think about what happens when Yami wins and pretty much destroys the world...
- Blight is made of swords. And lives in a Womb Level. It sucks to be the Emperor.
- The giant seaweed monster from the sunken treasure ship gives you a ton of praise for killing it. The praise is coming out of the monster its self and not from the surrounding areas like it usually does when you take out a demon gate or other large monsters... It wanted to die.
