Amaterasu is the main protagonist of the Okami games and was featured in Marvel vs Capcom 3 and its update as well back in 2011.

Amaterasu is the goddess of the sun, and uses the form of a white wolf with a lot unique abilities. Her design was so beautiful that it became very popular and is drawn often by a big group of fans while the Okami games itself were sadly not a big financial success for Capcom and currently it does not look like we will see a third Okami game.
