They can also cause certain... problems during localization outside of Japan due to them being characterized with ''enormous'' testicles. Another issue is their tendency to be erroneously localized as "raccoons" or "badgers," as they are close to unknown in America. These errors are less common in Europe, which has a large feral population of tanuki, and there aren't many problems localizing raccoons and badgers into Japanese media, as actual raccoons and badgers are present in Japan.

Japan. [[note]]although much of the knowledge (and subsequent introduction) of raccoons in Japan may have been from the cartoon Rascal Raccoon, which became unusually popular in Japan. The titular character was adopted as a pet, but was eventually forced to release him, which many Japanese may have found out the hard way.[[/note]]

* In ''ShamanKing'', Ponchi is a Tanuki that makes a pair with Conchi, a fox (or ''{{Kitsune}}''), which is another animal regarded with mystical powers of deception in Japanese mythology. The less said about his testicles, the better. Suffice it to say that he inverts the GroinAttack. Fitting with their mischievous sense of humor, both he and Conchi are {{Captain Ersatz}}es of WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy.

* Of ''{{Pokemon}}'', Sentret and Zigzagoon are two in Japan. Sentret resembles the folklore version while Zigzagoon resembles a real-life version. Sentret can spot an enemy from great distances and emits a loud cry as a warning. Though insignificant in battle, with below average statistical abilities and a small pool of moves to learn from, Zigzagoon can be useful as a party member. It is one of the few Pokémon that can have the "Pickup" ability, which will sometimes give you very rare items such as Rare Candy and PP Up, and its evolution, Linoone, can learn most HM moves, which are used to progress through otherwise [[InsurmountableWaistHeightFence insurmountable obstacles]].
