Hit the blockhead points in the following order:
- Purchase the Fog Pot and the Water Tablet from the Emperor as soon as you can (the Water Tablet is only available after defeating Oni Island). Now there is no need to use Orca in North Ryoshima Coast for all those sidequests.
- There are some areas in the game (some containing Stray Beads) that can only be accessed by using the Fog Pot and traveling to special Origin Mirrors that cannot be reached by usual means. Find them labeled on the map after accessing Fog Pot.
- There is a shortcut from Southern Ryoshima Coast to Madam Fawn's place on the road to the Guardian Sapling. The entrance is marked by torches, but must be activated from the Ryoshima Coast side.
- After everything with the Water Dragon, go back to the Dragon Palace and find the room with the mermaids. Get their swirly-whirly back and you will have travel from pool to pool for free.
-Remember where the pools and the larger Origin Mirrors are and you will save much time traveling from place to place.
Susano & Kushui:
Ever wonder where Susano and Kushi got to during the festival? Well, if you find them, Susano will praise you and call you his buddy or brother. Here is how you find the couple:
1) It has to be during the festival, after you defeat Orochi.
2) Go to the sacred tree in Kamiki Village and go inside there tofind where you got your cut technique. The cave where a giant statue of Susano's ancestor is. Where you had to in the sword.
3) The couple will be standing in front of the statue. There may be hearts coming from their head. If you talk to them, they will begin to mumble in embarrassment.
Pee on enemies:
Buy the Golden Fury attack from the sensei at Shinshu Field. The move costs 100,000 Yen, but it's well worth it--Golden Fury lets you pee on your opponents for damage.
Money and fangs hints:
You have to have the Golden Fury for max demon fangs. When you are in the room with the bell but before you find all of the ingredients for Orochi's appetizer, you can headbutt the bell to make a blue demon carpet appear. Enter it to face one black imp and two red imps. Power slash the black imp's skulls, hit him once, use Golden Fury for the first demon fang, then dispatch him and use power slash when he is in his dying animation for 3 more fangs. Repeat on the red imps for two more demon fangs a piece. You can rack up eight fangs quickly plus around 2000 to 3000 gold each time (or until you are bored).
