The Clay Soldier is a type of demon encountered in Ōkami and Ōkamiden.


The Clay Soldier is first encountered at Shinshu Field (100 years ago) during Amaterasu's trip beyond the Spirit Gate. The Clay Soldier is a dark brown clay figure with arcane, Moon Tribe-like markings on its body, only that these markings are of a green color instead of pulsing neon blue. The Clay Soldier wears a helmet with splitted top and shoulderguards, and its weapon is a flute with swirls on one end that seems to depict clouds.


In burial ceremonies of great figures, human sacrifices are buried with the deceased person, so that they will serve that person in the afterlife. These sacrifices are called martyrs. Sometimes, martyrs also include human-size clay figures. A clay figure was possessed by the spirit of a human martyr soldier,[1] and the resulting abomination is this demon.

Bestiary entryEdit

  1. "Those who opt to be buried with their lords in mourning are called martyrs.
    This clay figure holds the spirit of a martyred soldier.
    Use god techniques to quickly dispatch it and break the curse."


The Clay Soldier is very straightforward: Farm it, which also kills it in the process. When a Clay Soldier emerges, quickly approach it and use Golden Fury, Brown Rage and the Thief's Glove on it. Then, use the Celestial Brush to scribble over it and prompt it to flail its arms blindly, which then timely execute a Sub-Reflector Counterattack to immediately kill it. If after Golden Fury and the Thief's Glove is used, the Clay Soldier inhales to prepare to use its flute stab on Amaterasu, then either timely execute a Sub-Reflector Counterattack to kill it, or scribble it with the Celestial Brush (scribbling it is more recommended, as preparing the counterattack for the flute stab can be quite irritating, as the counterattack may be executed a bit too early due to nerve irritation). If after the initial farming procedures are completed, and the Clay Soldier prepares to execute the vertical slap attack, then this attack is easier to be counterattacked. When the Clay Soldier is killed, use Veil of Mist as its Floral Finisher.

There is not much farming Chibiterasu can do with this demon. He can only bash it to death (the Clay Soldier is vulnerable to all elements of the Providence Crystal, but lightning is the most powerful, and also paralyzes it), then use Cherry Bomb as its Floral Finisher.
