As shown in the Video Treasure Chest section of Issun's Present, several footages of the beta are revealed. These beta have some differences from the final game:
 
*The plot is altered, with [[Kushi]] and [[Susano]] at [[Sei'an City]], [[Himiko]] walking the streets of the capital, a strange male character being sacrificed to [[Orochi]], etc.
 
*[[Waka]] has a house, and can be talked to outside.
 
*There is a meter which fills when [[Amaterasu]] barks outside of someone's home at night, disturbing their sleep. If the meter is full, they will be annoyed, and will jump out to attack her.
 
*There is also a similar meter for dragging people, and they will chase Amaterasu if it is filled.
 
*The towns of <span class="explain" title="Referred to as ''City Peninsula'' in the Ōkami Official Complete Works.">Deshima</span> and Dragon Palace Town are present in the demo, as well as the <span class="explain" title="Originally used as a mean of reaching the Dragon Palace.">Turtle Submarine</span> and the Shrine of Rejuvenation. Additionally, the [[Tao Troopers]]' headquarter is on the ground and has a significantly different design. Concept arts of these locations can still be seen in the Ōkami section of Issun's Present and in the ''[[Ōkami Official Complete Works]]''.

*The game's title is a pun: the goddess Amaterasu's traditional title is ōmikami (great and powerful god), and as well as 大神 the word "Ōkami" can be written as 狼, which means "wolf."

*In the Wii version of ''Ōkami'', when a cutscene is playing, the graphics look as if it is done on rice paper, while in the PS2 version, it does not.

*Before the final release of ''Ōkami'', there were several locations that were only available in the demo. These locations are the towns of Deshima and Dragon Palace Town, the Turtle Submarine, the [[Tao Troopers]]' training ground and the Shrine of Rejuvenation. These locations' concept artwork can still be viewed in the Artworks section of Issun's Present.

*In the retro flash, there are two bonus characters not from ''Ōkami'', but from [[w:c:capcom:Viewtiful Joe (Series)|a different game series]] of Capcom. These characters are [[w:c:capcom:Viewtiful Joe (Character)|Viewtiful Joe]] and [[w:c:capcom:Silvia|Silvia]].

*Several characters in the retro flash when highlighted, instead of giving the option to download their 8-bit sprite, will prompt one to download a file called "<span class="explain" title="From Gekijou01 to Gekijou09">Gekijou</span>" which consists of images from the Ōkami Tea Room Intermission Corner section of the ''Ōkami Official Complete Works''. These images are named "Amaterasu Theater", from Act I to Act XXI.
