Creation

When Kuni's character was created Kuniomi Matsushita, the Director of Ōkamiden, based his design around the fact that he was Susano and Kushi's son and a rambunctious kid but cowardly at heart. Kuni's final design was based on these ideas. One of Kuni's early designs had very different components all based on different parts of his background and personality. The design had Kuni using a simple twig as a sword, this was inspired by Susano's wooden sword and was supposed to seem like a younger version of the sword. He also fixed his hair with Kushi's large comb. This design was well recieved by the game's makers and made it through to Model production, it was even animated. It wasn't until the creators watched Kuni riding on Chiniterasu's back on a Nintendo DS screen that they realized the design did not work. According to Matsushita the reasons the design did not work were; the number of different features on the character model caused it to appear too "mixter-maxter" from behind, people could not recognize him well because of his hairdo when the camera was about to look down on him from above. Matsushita considered altering different aspects of the game such as the camera movement, so that they could keep Kuni's old design. In the end he decided the model had to be changed and, according to Matsushita, went as far as bowing down and begging Kuni's designers to redesign him. [1]
