Otani is a Clan in Nioh2. Players can pledge their allegiance to a Clan at the Hidden Teahouse to acquire passive Special Effects that affect all Characters linked to the account.


While the Otani clan ruled Tsuruga in Echizen Province (modern-day Fukui prefecture), its roots can be traced back to southern Omi Province (modern-day Shiga prefecture). Otani Yoshitsugu is one of its most famous leaders.

When Toyotomi Hideyoshi presented the territory of Nagahama to the Otani clan, Yoshitsugu was serving him as a lowly page. It wasn't until the invasion of Chugoku and the battle at Shizugatake that Yoshitsugu made a name for himself, eventually earning the position of daimyo and was appointed as one of Hideyoshi's officers. It is said that he and Ishida Mitsunari were fast friends, having grown dose while working alongside one another.

The Otani crest consists of two butterflies facing one another. In his choice of this design, we see how strongly Yoshitsugu was drawn to the butterfly-a symbol of transformation that surely resounded with him due to his ongoing battle with illness.

Otani Notes

  • The more you contribute during Clan Battles and the longer you stay in the clan, the greater the effects of the Crest Protection will be.
  • Using the Genbu Guardian Spirit, The Unyudo Soul Core, four pieces of the Tatenashi set (Cuirass with Elemental Damage Taken mandatory), two undefined and a Picture Scroll with Elemental Damage Taken, the Otani clan bonus, one armor piece with fixed Elemental Damage Taken (for example, Dragon head helmet) and Elemental damage Taken invested in Agyo Titles allows one to reach -100.0% Elemental Damage Taken, becoming immune to Fire, Water and Lightning damage; however, this doesn't grant immunity to those status effects.
