Charms are items in Ghost of Tsushima and its expansion Ghost of Tsushima: Iki Island that provide various benefits to Jin Sakai both in and out of combat. They are obtained by honoring Shinto shrines or completing side quests. Depending on their use, charms may be classified as defense, melee, ranged, stealth or utility. Minor charms, indicated by a silver icon instead of gold, grant lesser benefits than normal charms.

Charms can be equipped in the Gear section of the pause menu (Gear → Sakai steel). Two normal charm slots are available from the beginning of the game. Up to four additional minor charm slots are unlocked by honoring Inari shrines. In total, the player can equip six charms at once. Doing so will unlock the bronze trophy A Charming Man.

There are additional charms that can be unlocked in New Game+. Additionally, there are Curses that can be bought from Baku the Voiceless that have negative effects on the player.

Charms are based on real-life omamori, traditional Japanese amulets that are dedicated to Shinto kami and Buddhist figures.
