Whirlwind is a secret Celestial Brush technique in Ōkami and Ōkamiden. The stronger form of Galestorm, this technique is granted by Kazegami. Whirlwind lets Amaterasu and Chibiterasu create a tornado around them that will blow all their enemies away. Whirlwind can also be used defensively, and also to put off flames with the same usage as Galestorm. To use Whirlwind, draw three horizontal lines on the Celestial Brush's canvas.
First, Amaterasu needs to purchase a Marlin Rod for ¥10,000 at either North Ryoshima Coast or Sei'an. Then, on an island at North Ryoshima, fish a Marlin, then go to Umi's restaurant on the beach. In the kitchen, as Umi prepares and slice the fish, draw 3 horizontal lines. Kazegami then grants Amaterasu Whirlwind.
- When Whirlwind is used, the kanji for wind appears.
