Secret Techniques

(Redirected from Secret Brush Techniques)

Amaterasu will have chances to upgrade her Celestial Brush Techniques throughout her journeys. Upgrades can be obtained by donating Yen, helping a person in need, participating in a Mini Game or even buying Holy Artifacts.
There are 11 in total and you cannot learn the Secret Brush Technique before learning the corresponding regular Brush Technique.

They are not required to beat the game however they make game play easier. Along with this some Stray Beads, Clovers and other Treasures cannot be reached without them.

A few of the Secret Brush Techniques reappear in Okamiden. They can be obtained once Chibiterasu convinces enough people to move to Yakushi Village, thus triggering the Shaman to move in. Then when the Shaman moves in, he will increase his stock of Secret Techniques twice, once when three Migrants move in and a final time when nine move in.
