* ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasonsTrioOfTowns'' features a Kitsune named Inari (named after the god that commands Kitsune) that can be married. Their gender is always opposite of the player character, similar to how they could take any form in the original mythology. (S)he is a [[ShrineMaiden keeper of a shrine]] and [[NeatFreak loves keeping her shrine clean]]

* Foxtrot X-Ray and Lady Ako in 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.

Additional fun fact: Kitsune are common AnimalMotifs for Japanese character types. In fact, in Japan women are considered to be "{{tanuki}}-faced" (square/round) or "kitsune-faced" (inverted triangle / heart-shaped), the latter being considered sexier, so to call a Japanese woman fox-faced is looked upon as paying them a ''very'' sultry compliment.

** In Chinese folklore, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daji Daji]] was a woman possessed by a sadistic nine-tailed fox who became the favorite consort of King Zhou of Shang, and brought about the downfall of his dynasty to the point that fox cults were outlawed in China. Hokusai expanded the narrative by drawing from the Hindu lehttp://www.neogaf.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=2gend of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalmashapada Kalmashapada]] and stating that after her plot was uncovered, Daji fled China for India, where she resumed her activities under the name Lady Kayō, concubine of Prince Banzoku - who she corrupted into a cannibalistic tyrant. She later returned to China as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bao_Si Bao Si]], becoming the concubine of King You of Zhou before fleeing to Japan as Tamamo-no-Mae.
