Defeating Blockhead Grande
You have to charge him more than once and you'll need a whiteboard marker and a camera that you can shoot video on then play it back either slower or frame by frame. Also, put a 4 by 4 grid on the screen. This worked for me really well. Charge him and while the dots are appearing mark them really well with the marker (completely fill in the dots you make) don't try to remember it and let the stones fall. Do that over and over until you are sure that you have filled in 1 dot for each grid space. When that's done charge him again, and have your camera record the entire dot sequence (its easier if you have someone else record it and play it back). Then play it back or play it slowly while you hold down the R1 button. After each dot appears on the play back mark it RIGHT BELOW the dot you made so that the painted dot is overlapping the marked dot on your screen, THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT. I got it on the 1st or 2nd try, so you might have to do it more than once. Hope this helped!
Easily Fill The Astral Pouch
Tired of searching for food? Well, after the Kamiki Village Festival, go to Mr. & Mrs. Orange's house, talk to each of them. Mrs.Orange Will Give You Some Cherry Cakes, and then keep talking to Mr.Orange, he will give you baked oranges on a stick 3 times. Use Sunlight Followed By Cresent. Reapeat The Process Till' The Astral pouch is full.
Finding buried treasures easily
Instead of looking for buried treasures in the day, do it during night, this way there will be a ray of light that will show you where is a treasure chest buried!
Okay, this is pretty easy. Obviously you cant jump off the island, but if you jump, then tackle the wall in mid-air the game will treat it like a wall and Amaterasu will backflip off. If you do it in the right place, with a bit of practice, you can squeeze through the small gap next to block head. PLEASE NOTE! You might not be able to get back, so be well-prepared!!!

How to get the Inferno Up-Grade
(Please note you must have access to sei-an city after the fog is lifted)
To get this powerful technique, first talk to the tea merchant at the start of Taka pass, he will say that a bunch of moles stole his prized teacup.

Next, go straight forward in the direction of the weird house on the map (DO NOT TURN BUT KEEP GOING FOWARD) and you will find a bunch of holes along the way, the moles will pop up and start a sort of mini-game (afterwards you can play for treasure) and you have to headbutt the mole dressing in blue 3 times, after that he will throw out a yellowish item, pick it up and go back to the tea merchant.

The tea merchant will thank you and give you some 'Golden Mushrooms' Next its off to Sei-an city. The first part of the city is where you get the technique, its located in a restaurant (you may need to search) but when you go to the far right of the building, you should see a giant pot-like thing with a chef below it, talk to him and give him the mushrooms.

Next is the tricky part, when the camera does a close up of the pot, quickly draw an infinity symbol (a sideways 8) and Moegami will appear shortly after, giving you the power of Firestorm!

My real user is Twilight_Okami if your wondering, message me if you'd like to say thanks.

Water Sprout Technique 2 (mermaid coin brush technique)
Anytime after you have completed the Dragon Palace go back again and enter the palace. Take a right down the corridor with the guard who says sorry about blocking you and lets you in. Go in and dig in the middle where the light is. It will open up a hole and now for a small minigame of sorts, but its worth.
You need to lead her to the very bottom, but they start you at the bottom, so you need to get all the way up and then lead her down. To get up start at the far right corner and start going up. Use bomb a lot (the quickest way is to place the bomb IN the squares since it will then detonate right away) and then when you reach her you need to use bombs to lead her down and use wind to get her over spiky ones. When she does get to the bottom dig where she indicates and the spring pops up.
Talk to the big lady again and she mentions how there is no whirly swirl. They then start running around in circles and you are then indicated to draw a swirl.
This swirl technique is "water sprout technique 2" which is equivalent to the mermaid coins! YAY!!!
