LAZY SKETCH: The Greatest Archer. Ever. by Miyonosuke LAZY SKETCH: The Greatest Archer. Ever. by Miyonosuke
YOICHIIIIIII *fangirl glomp* :iconglompplz:

Remember this guy in Okami? That sexy beast firing arrows and hitting his target EVERY SINGLE TIME?!
That guy who spawns endless arrows and apples from THIN AIR?!
And when you tackle him, he just LAUGHS IT OFF like the cool thug he is?!

He needs so much more love. *sigh*

FORESHORTENING IS MY ARCHENEMY

THE LOGO ON HIS SHIRT IS NOT ALIGNED ARRRGH
JUST PRETEND HE'S IN MOTION

Yoichi, Okami İClover Studios, Capcom

This is simply spectacular! :+favlove: :love:
Nice expression and barbed arrow. Extra dangerous.

Though I have never played Okami, Yoichi is my favourite character.

Thank you so much!
Yoichi... always rushing headlong into danger with a smile on his face.
That's why he's so awesome.
You'll love him even more if you play Okami, his dialogue is so charming and energetic. ^^

Would Yoichi count as a hotshot? Pun intended. :XD:

Well he's pretty cool too, but I can't think of any puns for him.

And then there's Tama.

He should be happy; he doesn't have nearly as many fangirls as Waka does.
...Don't tell him I said that.

Nobody in Okami has as many fangirls as Waka.
That's pretty much a fact. XD
Yoichi: I'm jealous. :\

So true. XDD
I mean, Clover totally planned it out with the other guys:
Issun is just a boy, and is 95% of the time too small to really see. XD
Ishaku was hot once, but now he's old...Young!Ishaku has fangirls, but not many, since he appears like, once throughout the whole game.
Oki has fans, but not so much fangirls, because he never shows his face.
Yatsu is married. And dead.
Tama, Yoichi, Samickle, Umi, Yama, Samurai Dandy, Abe, Kamo, etc etc, are really adorable but have very little screen time.
Susano is just...um. Besides, he's Kushi's property now.
Karude has a son, so he has a wife somewhere.
AND SO ON

See? It was all planned that Waka would be the sole heartthrob of Okami. XD And it worked.

I always wondered where he went once you finished his sidequest and what sort of 'journey' he went on.
Reply
:iconmiyonosuke:
Miyonosuke Featured By Owner May 24, 2013
Yeah, he wasn't very clear about that. Maybe he went to Hyrule and became Link's ancestor!

Since a lot of the characters in Okami are based on Japanese mythology, I wouldn't be surprised if he was based off some sort of fairytale, but I never did the research to find out.

Oh, Yoichi is based off of a historical figure, Nasu no Yoichi, an archer who assisted Minamoto no Yoshitsune (the guy Waka is based on) in his fight against the Taira clan. The legend goes that in one of the battles between the Taira and Yoshitsune, the Taira raised a fan on one of their boats and dared Yoshitsune's side to strike it down. Yoichi was then appointed to do it, so he went into the sea on a horse, and despite the rocking boat and the waves' motion, he struck the fan down in one shot.

Wow, that's pretty interesting. Is there any more to it than that?

Miyonosuke Featured By Owner May 24, 2013
Hmm, not that I know of. He became a Buddhist monk after all that fiasco, but there isn't much to say apart from that story.
Maybe Yoichi decided to live a religious life in Okami? He did witness miracles firsthand, after all.
Too bad he and Benkei never interacted with Waka. That would've been so cool.

Yeah it would have. Guess that leaves it open to fanfiction and fanart. I would say open for a sequel to Okamiden but I doubt it since it was like pulling teeth just to get a sequel for the original Okami.

Miyonosuke Featured By Owner May 24, 2013
Unfortunately I don't think Yoichi's story will be continued in any possible Okami sequel after Okamiden. He's too minor, as sad as that is. :(
And the fans never really think much of him.
Oh well, we can change that!
