Iron and Crystal Rocks
Iron and Crystal rocks are found all over Nippon, however unlike regular rocks they cannot be Power Slashed or headbutted. In order to break them Amaterasu needs to learn the Secret Brush Techniques Power Slash 2 and Power Slash 3. Iron rocks are black with orange markings and Power Slash 2 will break them, Crystal Rocks are purple with diamonds and Power Slash 3 and the "Hardhead" Dojo Technique will break them. There are twelve Iron Rocks and six Crystal Rocks dotted around the lands making a total of eighteen of them altogether.
Each rock has a Clover growing under it, the exceptions to this is an Iron rock in Kamui that leads to the Divine Spring where Amaterasu learns Power Slash 3 and two Iron Rocks on Oni Island that have nothing underneath them. Clovers under Iron Rocks give out 40 Praise and Clovers under Crystal Rocks give out 50 meaning that there is a total of 690 Praise available from Rocks.
