Catwalk's Brushstroke
Appearances Ōkami
User(s) Amaterasu
Granted by Kabegami
Found Catcall Tower
Power(s) Wall climbing (Kabegami's statues required)
Catwalk (「壁足」?; Kabetari; wall-walking) is one of the thirteen Celestial Brush techniques in Ōkami and is exclusive to the game. It is granted to Amaterasu by Kabegami.


With the presence of jade statues of Kabegami, Amaterasu can create a trail of golden glowing pawprints that last for a long time that she can adhere to, in order to scale along the trail and reach destinations that are usually unreachable. Amaterasu can also stick to the area within close proximity of a pawprint, should she miss the trail in her jump. However, only vertical and diagonal trails can be easily scaled; horizontal trails, without proper timing in adhering back to the trail after a jump, can result in Amaterasu plummeting down below, since when scaling these trails, Amaterasu can only leap upward, then aim her fall to progress along the trail.



How to use Catwalk.

Draw a line from a statue of Kabegami, creating a trail of golden pawprints. Jump onto the trail to stick to it, then jump again to follow the trail; adjusting direction to that of the trail if necessary while jumping (in case of horizontal or diagonal trails).

  • Catwalk is one of the least used Celestial Brush techniques, due to the small amount of Kabegami's statues scattered around Nippon.
  • When Catwalk is used, golden oval coins known as Koban (「小判」?) scatters as an aura around the source of the brushstroke. This is a reference to cat's association with wealth and money in East Asia.
