** Most famously, the Hare of Inaba was a rabbit god that attempted to trick a bunch of crocodiles/sharks into acting as a bridge for him. When he told them he'd tricked them, they tore all his fur off. Shortly after, 81 gods on their way to woo a princess saw him and heard his story. Eighty of those gods told him to wash in the sea and dry in the wind, which just made him hurt more. In contrast, the [[HumbleHero bag-carrier]] Ōnamuchi told the hare to wash in fresh river water and roll in fluffy cattails. The hare got better, and told Ōnamuchi that he would get to marry the princess.
