Veil of Mist (「霧隠」?; Kirigakure; concealing mist) is one of the thirteen Celestial Brush techniques in Ōkami. Granted by Kasugami, this technique boasts the ability of time slowing.


When used, Veil of Mist creates a thick mist that enshrouds the environment around Amaterasu and slows time down for a duration of four seconds. This ability is very useful, as Amaterasu can snatch this opportunity to attack demons at their weak points or reveal them, sneak by someone, traverse rapid mechanisms, etc. Also, during the final battle against Yami, if Veil of Mist is used, an apparition of Queen Himiko will appear and grant Amaterasu Spirit Globes, but only for a limited number of times. Himiko will always appear when using Veil of Mist, but each use will decreases the number of Spirit Globes bestowed by her prayer.


To use Veil of Mist, draw the mark = (two horizontal lines). Note that Veil of Mist's effect will only last for four seconds, and if its use overlaps an already lingering mist, the mist's duration will be restarted back to four second.

Main article: Mist Warp

By buying the Fog Pot from the Emperor for 80 Demon Fangs, Amaterasu can use Mist Warp. By drawing an X over an Ultimate Origin Mirror, she can quickly warp to any location she had visited with an Ultimate Origin Mirror. Using this technique, Amaterasu can obtain two Stray Beads at normally inaccessible Rocky Areas.



  • When Veil of Mist is used, the kanji 静? (sei; tranquility) appears in the form of markers denoting the remaining time of the technique's effect.
  • In Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, Veil of Mist is a Level 1 Hyper Combo of Amaterasu. The four kanji 静 that appears don't signify how much time Amaterasu has before the Hyper wears off; it's only for showing.
