Tachigami is the Celestial Brush god of Power Slash. He takes the form of a rat with the same symbolic markings as Amaterasu, while armed with a huge sword, being an ancient Jomon-style tsurugi, with an underestimating red sheath of small size.
His constellation can be found in the Cave of Nagi which lies in the River of the Heavens. When idle, he sticks his sword in the ground and balances on the pommel. If Power Slash is used, the kanji appears. Oddly, Tachigami's constellation looks very similar to the in-game representation of ki.
In Okamiden, Tachigami makes a reappearance in Okamiden to teach Chibiterasu the Brush Technique, Power Slash. However he is not alone, instead he brings his three children to meet Chibiterasu. They, too, enjoy playing around on the sword and balancing on the hilt. However, The Secret Brush Technique does not return. It is learnt in The Cave of Nagi as in Okami.
