Okami?  Nothing like Zelda. by Ill-wovenElm Okami?  Nothing like Zelda. by Ill-wovenElm
Obvious I just got Twilight Princess, isn't it? Well, this was inevitable in light of that.

Okami is extroadinarily Zelda-esque. Everything from the general gameplay style, to the art style (Windwaker, anyone?), to going inside the gone-rogue gaurdian of the water city as a dungeon *cough*JabuJabu*/cough* had me commenting, "Noooo, that's nooooothing like Zelda."

And then I started playing Twilight Princess. And got turned into a wolf, found strange purple mist I couldn't walk through, purified the land from darkness, and had lovely chats with giant white creatures covered in fanciful designs.

After Okami, I was laughing my head off. And since my "job" consitutes sitting at a desk and telling people the library is closed, I decided to spend my enforced can't-play-Zelda time on this.

Wheeeee. :D

(And Link's hind foot is crap; I dun' care. :p )

Okami was actually released before Twilight princess. But they are based on each other. I loves both of the games ^^

They do look like they are similar but when I played both games, I don't feel that one ripped off the other.

Anyways, this is awesome. I loved how you sticked with their own artstyles *pukes rainbows*

I have only one question which one did you draw first? they both have such unique styles and yet somehow you've managed to capture each one perfectly! my only gripe is wolf links teeth they look a little outta place... maybe it just me though who knows?

Just played both of these games back to back (Zelda first) and trying to play Okami sucked to begin with because the controls were burned into my brain from Zelda and the wolf only made it harder to learn the new buttons! But I do love both of the games and this is beautifully done. :iconheeeplz:

Soo many little familiarities. But that's why I love it<3 They aren't really that annoyingly the same, and each has a big difference into them - and I'm all into the awesome plots.

While the games are similar, I much prefer Okami to the later.
Link came out after Okami and by the time I started playing Link, I was so sick of the "game" due to the similarities that I never bothered touching it again.

Even if Okami took from Link, the game industry is solidly about competition, and Okami beat Link to his own punch.

Hello I was wondering if I could use this picture in a video I'm making for youtube about the cross over couple Wolf Link x Amaterasu! I will only use this picture if I get your permission! If I get your permission I will put in the video description that it was drawn by you and anything else you may want me to put!! Ok thanks!

Okay, unlike half of the people here who feel like arguing, I have got to say that the similarities are hilarious and I noticed them right off the bat. Yes, okay, the mythology makes sense as to why they are similar. Not that either are bad games at all. But I actually got Okami because I liked the gameplay of Wolf Link in TP so much. The style between winkwaker and Okami is different, but both still cartoony and flowy. The purple mist is similar. For some reason, I never noticed the white guardians though hahah. Funny stuff :) Never thought about the running man either. Great points! Still both great games :)

I first saw this pic and thought, "jeez, it looks like they are trying to break through to each other."
Like that little line between them is a barrier and they are desperately wanting to push through and see each other, I dunno, its what it looked like.
Very beautiful.

I am going to have to agre with Shykat on this one. I all four games you mentioned or referanced to. okay first Okami is NOTHING like Windwaker. Windwaker was to be toon-like and appeal to a younger audieance. Okami was to be as close to japanese style caligraphy as possible. Thus it was to look painted and to go with the fighting style of the main char.
Second, yes there ARE a few similarities, but like it was said the designer is from japan too so similarities are made but too few and far between. Going over all the game content, Okami has only three similarities to LoZ:twilight Princess, the mist, playing as a wolf, and the creatures (and thats pushing it as none of those creatures are a part of the mythology). As for the dragon, yes, you may have a point but the dragon was based off of japanese mythology so to be a more accurate...LoZ:OoT in that aspect was based off of japanese mythology lore. But lets face it...thats not the only game you get swollowed by a giant ass fish.

Beautiful artwork! I love these games! The fact that they are both wolves makes it that much more appealing as a rivalry (or a couple as I've often seen) Great job! ^-^

Yes, they are a lot alike, but that doesn't nessecarily make them bad. Actually the art style of Okami is caligraphy (300 point paper?) not cell-shaded but cell-shading might be based on caligraphy. The designer admitted the gameplay is based on Zelda but then again not a bad thing. As for the parts in Okami looking like Zelda (Dragon/Jabu) EVERY part of Okami is based straight from Japanese mythology and folktales and since these stories are old, well-known (to the Japanese) and the designer of Zelda was Japanese there are bound to be similiarities... after all Okami tries to squeeze as many stories as possible into it so it will have points similiar to those in other Japanese games. I love both the Zelda series and Okami and while similiar they are hardly the same game. Some people have never played Okami 'cause they think it's a lame and insignificant Zelda rip-off which is a shame.

dude like none of anything u just said made any sense, is zelda-esque mean it is or isn't kinda like zelda. link doesn't have a hind foot hes only got two feet, left and uh right..., and the purple fog you can walk through, i know this well just because i know exactly what your talking about and if that's as far as you've got then you haven't even made it out of kakarito village (wtf) and to quote ur quote "noo thats nothing like zelda" i think you really mean "noo, link isn't a dog... hes a, person". but yeah with that said i really haven't played okami, i've been meaning to but games are getting kind-of expensive and i already have a dog so, yeah, oh and running man/favs something whatever u said, i really don't even know what ur talking about or know how to respond to that so lets just say burning man, and myspace rocks lol...

You said Link isn't a dog. All I'm saying is that if you'd played Twilight Princess, Link obviously turns into a wolf.

well your obviously gay for dogs and yeah I did play actually, wolfs arn't dogs, dogs are barely dogs (as in dogs think there people half the time so stfu). Anyway I was saying and I'm sure Okami was a badass game and all but comparing "The" Zelda to Okami is pointless mainly because twilight princess shouldn't have had a wolf as a character to begin with, I thought that is might be cool before the game was released that you could turn into one because I thought that you'd be able to run in dungeons and without having to deal with Epona, but I was horribly wrong (as the wolf part of the game is totally useless)
