Divine Instruments are the physical combat weapons used by Amaterasu in the original Okami game and Chibiterasu in the Okamiden sequel game. There are three main classes-- Reflectors, Rosaries, and Glaives-- loosely based on the Japanese Imperial regalia.
For Amaterasu, each of the three classes contains five separate weapons in ascending order of strength. Some of these weapons are automatically acquired during the main plot of "Okami", while others must be purchased from merchants or won from side-quests.
She can simultaneously equip two weapons in different modes: "Main", used by pressing the square button (PS2)/ the A button (Japanese Wii)/shaking the Wii remote (English Wii); or "Sub", used by pressing triangle (PS2)/C (Japanese Wii)/Z (English Wii). Each instrument has its own strengths and weaknesses, and may have different effects from its main when equipped as a sub. At the beginning of the game, she cannot equip a sub until she gains a second weapon.
For Chibiterasu, each of the three classes contains one weapon that can be upgraded twice, changing its name and appearance; his first-tier weapons are simply smaller versions of Amaterasu's first-tier weapons, but their upgrades do not match her second-tier and third-tier equivalents. He can only wield one weapon at a time. After the first playthrough, he receives a fourth unique Divine Instrument, the "Providence Crystals", that forms its own class.
Reflectors are based on archaic metal mirrors. Their attacks are balanced in speed, range, and power.
Both Amaterasu and Chibiterasu begin their respective games with the first-tier Reflector "Divine Retribution".
When equipped as a sub by Amaterasu, they act as shields and also activate her devastating counter-attack. Her fifth-tier reflector "Solar Flare" is charged with fire and is Shiranui's signature instrument.
Rosaries are long-ranged and fast-striking. They are based on strands of magatama, "curved jewels" that are associated with Amaterasu in Shinto lore.
Amaterasu finds her first-tier rosary in Agata Forest during the first arc of "Okami". When subbed, they fire beads that hit from any range. Her fifth-tier rosary, "Tundra Beads", is powered with ice.
Chibiterasu finds his first-tier rosary in Sei'an City during the second arc of "Okamiden".
Glaives are slow-striking, but can be charged up to do massive damage, making them useful for single-hit-and-run attacks, especially against enemies with short-time openings. They are essentially large broadswords.
Amaterasu receives her first-tier glaive at the end of the first arc of "Okami". Different glaives give her slightly different sub attacks, resembling a charging thrust or slash. Her fifth-tier weapon, Thunder Edge, is charged with lightning.
Chibiterasu finds his first-tier glaive in the 5-Story Pagoda during the first arc of "Okamiden".
After the first playthrough of "Okamiden", Chibiterasu automatically receives a new weapon at the start of a New Game+, identical to the one used by Dark Chibiterasu in the endgame. The "Providence Crystals" are two shoulder-mounted crystal points that can be fired like missiles. The attack rate is slower than the three main classes, but it is vastly superior to them in damage and range. It cannot be enhanced.
Its Japanese name is 森羅万晶 (shinrabanshou), a pun based on the four-kanji idiom 森羅万象, which has the same pronunciation and means "all things in nature". The only difference is a kanji substitution of 晶 for 象, as 晶 means "crystal" (the type of weapon it is) and is also pronounced shou like 象.
Amaterasu can use Gold Dust to increase a weapon's strength by 50%, but the enhancement is limited to once per weapon, and its power will not exceed the basic strength of the next-highest tier. All of her weapons and their enhancements carry over to a New Game+ except for the fifth-tiers, which must be reacquired during the game although they retain any enhancements; i.e., if dusted in a previous playthrough, they will come back in pre-enhanced form.
In addition to the general reference to the Three Imperial Treasures of Japan, most of the original Japanese names of Amaterasu's individual weaspons are references to specific Shinto relics. (The single exception is the 2nd-tier Reflector, which is named for a type of archeological mirror linked with the legendary shamaness Queen Himiko.)
The first Imperial Treasure, Amaterasu's mirror, provided the original names for both the 1st-tier and the 5th-tier Reflectors.
The second Imperial Treasure, Amaterasu's necklace, provided the original name for the 5th-tier Rosary.
The third Imperial Treasure, Susanoo's sword, provided the original names for the 1st-tier, 3rd-tier, and 5th-tier Glaives. The other two Glaives were both named for two other swords kept at the same shrine, whose treasury also provided names for the other four Rosaries and the 3rd- and 4th-tier Reflectors.
