In folklore, a Kitsune is a type of yokai, that is, a demon.
In this context, the word Kitsune is often translated as "fox spirit".
But this doesn't necessarily mean that they are not living beings or that they are anything other than foxes.

The word "spirit" in this case is used in the Eastern sense, reflecting the state of knowledge or insight.
Any fox that has lived long enough can thus become a "fox spirit".
There are two main types of Kitsune: the myobu, or divine fox, often associated with Inari, and the nogitsune, or wild fox (literally "field fox"), often, but not always, described as evil, having malicious intent.

A Kitsune can have up to nine tails.
In general, it is believed that the older and stronger the fox, the more tails it has.
Some sources even state that the Kitsune grows an extra tail every hundred or thousand years of its life.
The foxes seen in fairy tales almost always have one, five, or nine tails.

A kitsune is a fantasy creature that is based on the foxes in Japanese folklore.
They are often depicted as having human-like intelligence, long lifespan, and magical powers, especially the ability to shapeshift into human form or other animals.
Kitsune can have different types and personalities, ranging from benevolent and loyal to mischievous and cunning.
Some kitsune are associated with the god Inari, who is the protector of rice cultivation and prosperity, and serve as his messengers or guardians.
Other kitsune are more independent and may cause trouble for humans or other beings.

One of the most distinctive features of a kitsune is its number of tails.
Kitsune can have up to nine tails, depending on their age, wisdom, and power.
The more tails a kitsune has, the stronger and more respected it is among its kind.
A nine-tailed kitsune is considered to be the most powerful and rare, and often has a white or golden fur color.
Kitsune can also use their tails to manipulate fire, create illusions, or cast spells.

A kitsune's appearance can vary depending on its type, mood, and preference.
Some kitsune prefer to stay in their fox form, while others like to adopt a human form to interact with humans or other creatures.
A kitsune's human form can be either male or female, and usually reflects their personality or desired image.
Some kitsune can also change their appearance to match their surroundings or blend in with different cultures.

However, a kitsune's true nature can sometimes be revealed by its shadow, which may show its fox shape or its tails.

A kitsune is a fascinating and versatile fantasy creature that has inspired many stories and legends in Japan and beyond.
They are often portrayed as tricksters, lovers, friends, enemies, or heroes, depending on their motives and relationships.
Kitsune can be loyal allies or formidable foes, depending on how they are treated by others.
They are also known for their curiosity, cunning, and creativity, which can lead them to explore new places, learn new things, or create new wonders.

Kitsune are not strictly evil or good, but rather have different personalities and alignments depending on their type and origin.
In Japanese folklore, kitsune are foxes that have supernatural abilities, such as shapeshifting, creating illusions, and controlling fire.
Some kitsune are loyal servants of the god Inari, who is associated with rice, fertility, and prosperity.
These kitsune are benevolent and helpful to humans who worship Inari.
Other kitsune are tricksters who enjoy playing pranks on humans or seducing them.
These kitsune can be mischievous, malicious, or even deadly, depending on their mood and motive.

Kitsune are also found in other cultures and media, such as China, Korea, and various fantasy novels and games.
These kitsune may have different names, appearances, and powers, but they usually share some common traits with the Japanese ones.
For example, they often have multiple tails that indicate their age and wisdom, and they can transform into human or hybrid forms.
Some of these kitsune are good allies or friends of the main characters, while others are enemies or rivals.

Therefore, kitsune are not a monolithic group of creatures that can be classified as evil or good.
They are diverse and complex beings that have their own personalities, goals, and morals.
They can be friendly or hostile to humans depending on the situation and their own nature.
Kitsune are fascinating and mysterious creatures that have captivated the imagination of many people for centuries.
