Kotodama is deep Japanese concept. "Koto" means word and "dama" means spirit. To put it simply it's called Battle Cry.

Gameplay

Battle Cry and the Kotodama Effect first appears in Peace Walker. To use it, select CO-OPS Comms from Mission Prep. Some battle cries have special effects and to activate it, highlight it and press triangle button. Special Battle Cries uses psyche and player won't be able to gain S rank when using them.

Player earns new Battle Cries for every 5'000 heroism points they gain. Higher the heroism, more powerful Battle Cries. For example, 220'000 heroism gives you "Co-op thunder", which hits all enemies with thunder whom are standing in Co-op ring. And 500'000 heroism gives you "Surrender!!" (Enemy soldiers nearby surrender).
