Susano's Fight
Behold! Nagi, the greatest warrior who ever lived! And from this day forth, guardian deity of Kamiki Village! Hear me, vile serpent who would do violence upon the weak! Your time is up! Feel the wrath of my trusty sword!


Nagi (「イザナギ」?; Izanagi) is the fabled hero of the people of Nippon, the lover of Nami, and the ancestor of Susano. 100 years ago, he and Shiranui battled the deadly 8 headed serpent Orochi, freeing Kamiki Village from the fear and torment of Orochi's rule. Despite Susano being told he is nothing like Nagi and that he should be fighting monsters if he is truly his descendant, it turns out Nagi is actually a lot like Susano, save that Nagi did not doubt himself the same way Susano does.

Nagi in Ōkamiden.

Nagi's armor is similar to Amaterasu and Celestial Brush gods' coloration: White with red markings and swirls. His sword Tsukuyomi is blue with a moon crescent on it. He has a full beard and black hair, although most of it is covered by his helmet.


Nagi, with the help of Shiranui, defeated Orochi 100 years ago with his sword Tsukuyomi. His style was to act cowardly to fool his opponent before striking. He epitomizes the saying "A smart falcon hides his claws from view". However, when Amaterasu actually meets Nagi by going back in time through the Spirit Gate, it is shown Nagi actually is a very lazy man, much like Susano, and is not the serious warrior everyone in the present believes him to be. Nagi has poor spelling skills as shown by his spelling of "warrior" as "worrier".

Nagi is quite an easy opponent, only having three attacks: a summoned sword firing attack, a lunging horizontal sword slash, and a slow forward stab. He will fire five swords at Amaterasu, which she can either dodge or deflect back at him with Power Slash to stun him. She should attack him with her Divine Instrument whenever she has the chance. Unlike most of the opponents in the game, Nagi is largely immune to Celestial Brush techniques, so the battle will depend on direct physical melees with Divine Instruments. The main exception is that he can be injured by sending using the Thief's Glove, which can penetrate any defense. Nagi will also release a Demon Fang or two when Golden Fury and Brown Rage or a Sub-Reflector Counterattack is executed on him, although technically the counterattack does not work, only netting the Demon Fang.

During the tenth round of the Kamui Devil gate trial cave, however, there would be three Nagi facing Amaterasu at once, each having vastly increased health. Combined with the fact that in any given moment at least one Nagi would be generating throwing blades, this fight could be rather troublesome without invulnerability aids.



  • In Japanese mythology, Izanagi and Izanami were the two gods that created Japan and many deities. After failing to bring Izanami back from Yomi, Izanagi created Amaterasu, Susanoo, and Tsukuyomi by washing his left eye, nose, and right eye respectively.
  • Kamui's Devil Gate Trial Cave has three simultaneous copies of Nagi in the last round with no other opponents. They are far stronger than the original and can perform the five-sword ranged attack, which makes it all the more difficult since the attacks may come in from three differenet angles.
  • After the battle with True Orochi, Nagi calls his sword Bokunenjin instead of Tsukuyomi.
