|East Asian mythological beast.|
Kyūbi (九尾の狐, Kyūbi no Kitsune: literally "Nine-tailed Fox") is a mythological beast whose myths originated from China and spread to other parts of East Asia. Ancient Chinese texts state that it is a malevolent specter of mischief and trickery with a maddening craving for human flesh. Yet later generations of folklore may instead state that it is a divine guardian for various deities. This fox spirit remains morally ambiguous in East Asian folklore, generally accepted as a magical being that can change its allegiances at any time. Two examples of these foxes are Daji and Tamamo.
Role in GameEdit
A malevolent being who thrives from conflict, Kyūbi originally waged war against the Mystics at Yamatai. She disguised herself as Tamamo to discreetly spread discord wherever she went, even using her own tails to create doppelgangers of the humans for that purpose. When the heroes expose the fox demon's true form, she is forced to flee from one area to another before being cornered at Odawara Castle. She is defeated by her pursuers and sealed within the Divine Mirror.
While inside the mirror world, the vixen attempts to ease her boredom by personally crushing the reflections of her enemies. Having befriended some of these imitations, she eventually forms an army large enough for her to attack the parallel mystic realm. Venting her rage against the replica Mystics allows Kyūbi to gain satisfaction during her confinement.
The majority of her four basic weapons continue the flower naming motif from her other counterpart. The first two names reference the mythological beast in some manner. Her first weapon is named after peach blossoms as a reference to China, while her second "exposing pine" is a roundabout method of saying that Kyūbi no Kitsune is often considered one of the Three Evil Spirits in Japan.
The other two weapons have flowers which symbolize contradiction. Her third weapon names two flowers simultaneously: the Japanese wisteria and Japanese camellia. Wisterias can represent euphoria, but camellias can be interpreted to mean an unclean death. The buttercup is the namesake for her fourth weapon and it has two meanings within the Japanese flower language. It can represent glory, honor, a child's innocence, or long-awaited arrivals based on interpretations from modern culture. Alternatively, the buttercup can viewed as a flower which disparages others from trying to succeed. A famous tale tying into this negative version is Minamoto no Yoshinaka's demise. He was reportedly killed by his cousin's troops within a field of these flowers.
