Most East Asian folklore considers foxes to be creatures capable of magical feats. They are well known for their ability to change into human beings, and for possessing multiple tails (as many as nine) in older and more powerful individuals. They are often malicious but can be friendly towards humans as well.

As well as Japan, Korea, and China, the nine-tailed fox concept appears in a Vietnamese legend, where it was drowned by a dragon to create a lake, and even made it to Europe where it appears in the Grimm's fairytale "Mrs. Fox's Wedding".
