* The Korean tv drama ''Series/MyGirlfriendIsANineTailedFox'' involves an IdiotHero freeing a trapped gumiho spirit from a painting. It goes about as well as one would expect.
* ''Forbidden Love'' was another Korean tv drama with a race of nine-tailed fox-people, one of whom falls in love with a human.
* ''Gumiho: Tale of the Fox's Child'' was a Korean {{Thriller}} tv miniseries about a gumiho who has to endure 10 years of marriage to become human. On the eve of her 10th anniversary, her husband breaks his vows, leaving her and the 9-year-old daughter who has inherited her abilities. Oddly, the gumiho in this story is sympathetic, only wishing a normal life as a human. It is only when her daughter is lynched that she becomes vengeful.
* Keen-eared viewers of ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' will realize that a fox's bark proceeds mysterious events, such as the carnival vanishing in "From Out of the Rain" and Tosh's abduction in "Countrycide". In the latter case, Ianto even points out that it's a fox and distractedly follows the sound, leaving her alone in the first place.
* The Fuchsbau in ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' are Fox-like Wesens.

The fox is no different. Foxes are nocturnal hunters, with an eerie, haunting cry, and a reputation for almost supernatural cunning and cleverness. It is no surprise that their mythological counterparts draw their inspiration from these traits.

Since foxes steal from humans, this depiction is not surprising. Using cunning or treachery, a fox will outwit a human or other animal to steal what it wants. This is often closely related to the trickster version of the fox.

Foxes are nocturnal and associated with the Moon; they are also extremely graceful animals, like cats. For these reasons, they are often associated with the feminine. A shapeshifting fox will assume the form of an attractive female. Even if a shapeshifting fox take form of a human male in eastern culture, odds are high that they are {{Bishonen}}.

* Reynard Fossman in the ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' books is a fae with red hair, a pointy face and an aura of disreputability that makes PC Grant want to arrest him on general principles. In ''The Hanging Tree'' he turns out to be a [[LegacyCharacter descendant]] of the original Reynard. Possibly CunningLikeAFox, but not nearly as much as the thinks, with a tendency to get in over his head. Also possibly a shapeshifter, since in a fight he ''almost'' seems to grow a muzzle before he starts biting people.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'', the Fox Miraculous, inhabitated by the fox-like spirit Trixx, gives it holder awesome illusion powers, as shown by Rena Rouge easily summoning an ''immense'' amusement park to distract the [[VillainOfTheWeek Sapotis]].
** Before the actual Fox Miraculous makes its debut, the imitator Volpina showed up with a similar power, her illusions being easily dispelled (something that foils her first attempt at getting the Ladybug Miraculous) but being easily spammed (the Miraculous' ones can be cast only once per transformation, and once they're used there's a five minutes countdown before a forced detransformation).
