How to use Waterspout using power springs (left) or channeling water to a target (right).

Waterspout is one of the source-required Celestial Brush techniques, needing a source of water in order to use. When near a body of water, one must simply place the Celestial Brush over the water and draw a line to the desired target. The water will be channeled to the target, creating a stream. This can be used to douse objects that are on fire, such as treasure chests or demons of the fire element. It can also be used to fill various objects with water.

Waterspout also has a second use. In certain areas, one can find power springs, where water is concentrated. Drawing a vertical line from a power spring will create a tall geyser which Amaterasu can use to reach high places. This can only be done in Ōkami.

As with all source-required Celestial Brush techniques, Waterspout uses Holy smoke to differentiate it from the other techniques. Blue smoke indicates that Waterspout's effects will take place once the Celestial Brush is put away, except in special instances.

Main article: Deluge and Fountain

Waterspout can be upgraded twice. The first upgrade, Fountain, can be found in the spring room in the Dragon Palace. Fountain allows travel via Mermaid springs without using a Mermaid Coin. The second upgrade, Deluge (or Splash in Ōkamiden) is found behind Himiko's Palace after using Waterspout on Himiko's gravestones. It allows the user to create a rainstorm, effectively phasing out the need for a water source.

Fountain cannot be obtained in Ōkamiden since there are no Mermaid springs present in the game. However, Splash, Chibiterasu's version of Deluge, can be purchased from the shaman in Yakushi Village for ¥50,000.
