|Location||North Ryoshima Coast|
The Watcher is a character found exclusively in Okami. He can be found gazing at the stars from Watcher's Cape in North Ryoshima Coast, As he spends so much of his time there, Watcher's Cape was named after him. When Amaterasu first speaks to him, he comments that his one wish is to see a shooting star. If Amaterasu dots the sky with her Celestial Brush to create one he will wish on it and make the Whirlpool Galaxy appear. This gives access to the Dragon Palace if Amaterasu makes it spin by using Galestorm three times. After this Whirlpool Galaxy has appeared, The Watcher will admit that peace is his only wish for Nippon and that its citizens can make it happen.
- His eyes are shaped like stars and he has a wrinkle on his forehead that is shaped like the Galestorm brush stroke needed for the Whirlpool Galaxy to start spinning.
