Nioh Kodama Locations Guide

Our Nioh Kodama Locations Guide will help you find all Kodama in the game to earn their blessings and unlock Kodama Leader Trophy.

Nioh Kodama are basically green-colored creatures who are scattered all across the game’s world. If you take out time and collect them, you’ll earn their blessings i.e. several bonuses.

For more help on Nioh, read out our Amrita Farming Guide, Bonfire Locations Guide, and Hiragumo Teakettle Fragments Locations.

Nioh Kodama Locations

These Kodama blessings basically include better item drops, increased Amrita collection, better weapons, and several other bonuses.

It’s highly recommended to keep an eye out on Nioh Kodama and get their blessings.

Kodama in Nioh are found in the game’s main missions. Before you start a mission, make sure to check out the total number of Kodama you can find in the particular mission.

As a general rule of thumb; check out corners, rooftops, behind crates, etc. to find these cute creatures.

After you find a Nioh Kodama, interact with it to send it to a nearby Shrine and move on. There are 150 Kodama that can be found in Nioh. There are a couple of items and abilities that help you track Kodama by marking them on your mini-map.

Kodama Blessings are activated at the Shrine. One important thing that you need to note is that the blessings offered by Nioh Kodama are cumulative.

For example, if one Kodama offers 5% increase in elixir drop rate, two Kodama will increase it to 10%.

In this section of the guide, I’ve provided an overview of all Nioh Kodama Blessings that you can get:

  • Hunter Blessing: Item Drop Rate Increases by 5% Per Level
  • Healer Blessing: Elixir Drop Rate Increases by 5% Per Level
  • Oracle Blessing: Amrita Collection Increases by 5% Per Level
  • Warrior Blessing: Armor Drop Rate Increases by 1% Per Level
  • Swordsman Blessing: Weapon Drop Rate Increases by 1% Per Level
