Oina Warrior Oki
Gender Male
Race Oina
Location Kamui
Appearances Ōkami
I understand why he took the divine Kutone sword. He was trying to do what was right for the village. When the two demons got violent at the shrine on Ezofuji, it was Oki who came to Kemu's rescue!


Oki (「オキクルミ」?; Okikurumi) is a warrior of the Oina, who is found when Amaterasu first enters Kamui.


Despite the harsh cold winter of Kamui, Oki is always seen in his light clothing outfit, which consists of a light short-sleeved shirt of a dark blue shade, a crimson sleeveless vest with white decorations that has a dark blue line on each of the sides of the vest. Oki has dark blue pants with a red belt, which matches in color with the shirt and vest respectively.  The Oina warrior has brown footwear that seems to be leather shoes, round guard-like objects on his wrists, and on his waist, the sheath for Kutone is strapped. Oki, like all other members of the Oina, has a mask, his bearing the signature design of what seems like a blue bear with large, horizontal-pointing ears and black eyes with red irises. Oki has tan skin despite the constant cold climate of Kamui and spiky hair, with the dreadlocks of a shade changing from red to black. He also wears a fang on his neck. In his wolf form, Oki is a muscular male wolf with fur of a primary dark blue color and red on his neck. His mask is now on his forehead, and still keeps his worn fang at its place.


At the first encounter with Oki, he is depicted as selfish, focusing on nothing but slaying more demons and appeasing Kutone's thirst for demonic blood[Citation needed], to the point that he doesn't care for anything, or anyone else. However, after Shiranui's sacrifice to save Oki from a fatal attack, he opened his heart toward others.

Oki as depicted in the Bestiary.

Oki fights with two forms. In his human form he fights with his sword. Avoiding Oki's attacks while delivering powerful strikes using a Glaive can be advantageous. When Oki summons a group of icicles, Amaterasu should use Power Slash to send them flying back at him. She can then attack him while he is temporarily stunned. Inferno can thaw Amaterasu if she is frozen by any of Oki's attacks. Amaterasu must move close in order to deal damage to Oki but she must be wary of his powerful sword strikes.

After the human form is defeated, Oki will transform into a large wolf and uses ice attacks along with his silver sword. He is also able to create doppelgangers (two at once) which will freeze Amaterasu if they attack or touches her. He gets more aggressive with attacks, though they are easier to see coming and generally easy to jump away from. After a long series of hit and run attacks, Oki will finally give in to Amaterasu.


  • "I must slay those wretched demons now, before it is too late!"
  • "Yes, but Kutone will not wake until it has tasted more monster blood. So I will continue slaying the foul beasts wherever they may be, until Kutone lights our way to victory!"
  • "When one tries to master something, it ends in either success or failure. But it is in the attempt itself where you find the true value. Believe in your own power and walk your own path."
  • "The time to wield the legendary sword Kutone is now!"
  • "Something in your brushwork touches the heart, Issun. You never abandoned your life as an artist after all."



  • He is one of very few characters who Amaterasu cannot attack (after fighting him). He, like Waka, can "phase" through her attacks and will not be affected by any of her brush techniques, unless Amaterasu paints a circle around him with the Celestial Brush, which turns him into his wolf form.
  • It is possible to conclude that other Oina can roar while in human form, being that Oki did so before fighting Amaterasu.
  • There is a bit of a contradiction between him and Lika. Before fighting True Orochi, he says that he doesn't care that Lika is on Orochi's back, which could mean that he did not care at all about her safety. However, when Amaterasu takes Lika to the entrance of the Wawku Shrine, she tells everyone that Oki told her to "be a good Oina and help everyone". But, later on in the story, it is revealed that Oki's heart was filled with selfish desire, the desire to make Kutone glow no matter the cost. This means that before he did care about Lika, but was willing to risk her safety to make the sword glow.
  • Oki is based on the legendary Ainu hero Okikurmi (「オキクㇽミ」?).
  • In the Japanese version of the game, Oki follows the pattern of nearly every other member of the Oina tribe in using occasional words from Itak, the language of the Ainu people and also donor of many words, names, and legends that contributed to the stories in Kamui
  • Oki appears as a silhouette in the opening sequence of Ōkamiden.
