A mythical Japanese creature, with the ability to shapeshift - Usually takes on the shape of a fox, though.
They take on the shape of a human being to seduce others, and not unlike a vampire, they slowly feed on people's life force, able to do so in multiple short sessions.
A Kitsune can have up to nine tails, and the more tails it has, the older and wiser it is.
At the point where it has nine tails, its fur will also turn golden.
A rather well-known kitsune is Tails
, the best friend of Sonic
Because of his age, he doesn't have the shapeshifting lifedraining capabilities others of his race have.
In fact, since he has only two tails, Tails is considered a very basic and young kitsune.
Possibly because of his age (8).
"Was that a fox...with THREE tails?"
Kitsune is simply the japanese term for "fox" and nothing else.
The fact that Japanese used to believe that ALL foxes were magical and so are many foxes in japanese fiction (especially anime), doesn't change that the term "kitsune", per se, doesn't imply any supernatural characteristic and therefore, there's no reason to call anything "kitsune", unless you are speaking proper japanese.
Tails "Miles" Prower is not only a kitsune, but also a "zorro" and a "renard"! ;)
Shapeshifting fox of Japanese legend.
Also, nickname of Konno Mitsune from Love Hina, whose expression is often seen as fox-like.

the tails doll

Usually used in anime's and manga's, a kitsune is a mischievous creature, mainly using the form of a fox, with an ability to shapshift. Kitsunes can have multiple tails, apparantly.
In some anime's/manga's, they're cute little things in a chibi form that are so adorable and cute that you want to hug it forever, and in some cases they're voice can be so high and annoying you'd wanna shoot it.
They are demons, in a way, but keep in mind, this is a mythalogical creature, is only seen in anime, manga, and ur imagination.

randomgirl2: No... and if you say 'kawaii' again i'll shoot you in the face.
randomgirl1: ohhh T.T||||
