User with this ability either is or can transform into an Tanuki, an animal shapeshifter with great physical strength and supernatural powers. Like the kitsune, they are masters of shapeshifting and disguise and are mischievous creatures taking all sorts of disguises to deceive or annoy travelers or to get such things as saké, food, or women to the point of turning itself into inanimate objects, such as the tea-kettle.

Notoriously found of alcohol and parties, they can become at times violent or unpleasant if drunk or deprived of their favorite drinks. Unlike kitsune, tanuki usually have their own agenda and are prone causing chaos and confusion amongst humans and, sometimes, other youkai.
