Amaterasu can have a maximum of twelve ink pots, while Chibiterasu can have a maximum of ten. They start out with three at the beginning of their journeys, and can increase their numbers with praise. In Ōkami, ink pots refill over time. They can also be refilled by finding additional pots from baskets or fallen enemies. In Ōkamiden, ink pots do not refill over time (unless playing on Greenhorn mode), but they can be refilled with the above methods or by using Spirit Inks or Divine Sake. Additionally in both games, infinite ink can be gained temporarily by using an Inkfinity Stone or permanently with the String of Beads.
