Thunderbolt (「迅雷」?; Jinrai; thunderclap) is one among thirteen Celestial Brush techniques in Ōkami and eleven in Ōkamiden. Obtained by both Amaterasu and Chibiterasu, it is granted by Gekigami.


Utilizing lightning sources, Amaterasu or Chibiterasu can electrify their desired targets, whether it is demons or puzzle-solving elements. In combat, Thunderstorm can deal heavy damage to most opponents and paralyze them for a while, making them vulnerable for further attacks. In puzzle solving, Thunderstorm is used to activate mechanism, open doors, etc.

Main article: Thunderbolt

In both Ōkami and Ōkamiden, Thunderbolt is Thunderstorm's single upgrade. By drawing a zigzag in the shape of a lightning bolt, Amaterasu and chibiterasu can summon a massive thunderbolt capable of electrocuting and burning anything unfortunate enough to be within its very wide radius.


  • When used on NPCs, Thunderstorm will have the same outcome as when Inferno is used on these characters: they will be rendered black and smoking.
