* ''VideoGame/WarioLand3'' has Wolfenboss/Kezune, the boss of the Pool of Rain, a flying Kitsune wearing a sorcerer's robe. He creates and fires magical energy balls that bounce off the floors and walls and levitate you out of the arena if they hit, and giant spiked balls that turn you into Puffy Wario (Causing you to fly out of the arena) if they hit and provide the enemies needed to attack him. He is usually considered ThatOneBoss.

He is usually considered ThatOneBoss. ''VideoGame/WarioLandII'' also has the Flames/Flame Kitsunes, small red foxes in pirate outfits wielding torches, but unlike Wolfenboss above they don't fly and use magic, instead walking around and trying to light Wario on fire with their torch.

* A nine-tailed kitsune is featured as the BigBad of ''[[OtogiMythofDemons Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors]]''. What's notable about this is that one of the main characters is based on Abe no Seimei (see above), and it seems like the two [[GenderSwap switched genders]]: The Kyūbi is now a male, while Seimei is a female, and they're not related.

* Creator/AndreNorton used fox spirits in both ''Imperial Lady'' (co-written with Susan Shwartz) and ‘’White Jade Fox.’’ In the former, Silver Snow's maid is a kitsune, while in the latter it's left ambiguous as to whether any of the characters are literally kitsune, but the trope is at least toyed with.

* Foxtrot X-Ray and Lady Ako in Creator/MercedesLackey's ''Chrome Circle''. FX has three tails and is pretty weak (though he eventually earns a two-tail upgrade for extreme valor). Ako has nine tails. She's also "the bearer of some of the most noble blood Under- or Above- Hill." Her half-kitsune/half-dragon daughter also has nine tails in her kitsune form.
** Another one makes a brief (yet important) appearance in her ''Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms'' series in ''Fortune's Fool'', giving the female lead a magic paper crane that comes in handy.

* Ran Yakumo from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', who is of the nine-tailed variety, making her very old and powerful. The fact that she's the [[UsefulNotes/{{Onmyodo}} shikigami]] of Yukari Yakumo demonstrates how powerful Yukari is, while the fact that Ran has her ''[[NestedOwnership own]]'' shikigami, [[CatGirl Chen]], demonstrates how powerful ''she'' is.
** The official manga ''Manga/TouhouIbarakasenWildAndHornedHermit'' has a chapter where Reimu catches a ''kudagitsune'' (pipe fox spirit) attending one of her parties while disguised as Marisa. The spirit offers to pay Reimu back and does so by encouraging the villagers to visit the shrine, making her prosper...and also running her ragged with how busy she's become. Kasen catches it and explains that ''kudagitsune'' eventually eat their owners' health and prosperity. The Marisa-fox shows up BoundAndGagged in the background of the next few chapters (having been "exterminated" by Reimu) as a RunningGag.

is. She's also incredibly good at math, being able to calculate the width of the Sanzu River...which is quite a feat, considering the Sanzu's width changes depending on how sinful one is[[note]]Yukari, in the meantime, can apparently calculate its depth, which is again quite a feat since the Sanzu is supposed to be bottomless[[/note]].

** Another official manga ''Manga/TouhouSuzunaanForbiddenScrollery'' has a two-part story where a kitsune is writing on the doors of the local school, which worries the parents. After Reimu makes some failed attempts at repelling it, Kosuzu uses her {{Omniglot}} skills to figure out what's going on: [[spoiler:it's repeating the day's lessons, meaning that the kitsune is a child that's trying to learn]]. She ends
up BoundAndGagged resolving the situation by giving Reimu some special {{Paper Talisman}}s...[[spoiler:that are actually advertisements for Suzunaan. When the kitsune-child comes to the store, Kosuzu gives it a blank book to write in and offers to give new blank books in exchange for trading in the background old ones when they fill up, meaning she gets a steady supply of the next few chapters (having been "exterminated" by Reimu) as a RunningGag.youma books.]]
