HumanKyubi

Kyubi's human form.

Kyubi is a fox Yo-kai with a rather tall height and is covered in thick, golden fur with white belly and paws. Its chest is covered in a thicker patch of purple fur, surrounded by a yellow "trim" around his shoulders, with four wispy hairs sticking out. Kyubi has nine tails, each tipped purple, and sports long nails of the same color. Its muzzle is long and pointed, like its golden-tipped ears, and on its face are markings resembling a kitsune theatre mask.

He also has a human form which looks like a young boy about the same age as Nathan. He wears a blue sweater vest over a white shirt and black shorts. He has green eyes and grayish tousled hair, with two strands standing up and nine strands in the back that resembles his nine tails.

Personality

Although he is the town's guardian, this Kyubi is a somewhat unpleasant person, being arrogant, serious and cold, but not unjust. While he spoke condescendingly to Nate and Whisper and openly mocked Komasan for his timidness, he reveals after the defeat of Massiface that he is in fact, working to aid Nate and Whisper and hopes that they will be able to stop what was coming. He is also manipulative and openly admits to this, having lured Nate to the Construction Site to pit him against Massiface. In the second game his personality has softened somewhat, though he remains proud and arrogant.

In the anime, only the latter Kyubi appears, initially seen in his own miniseries corner where he's in the process of collecting Heart Orbs. He meets and attempts to charm Katie, but finds himself having great difficulty with it, much to his dismay. When shocked or annoyed, his shapeshift begins to fail; with his ears or tails showing, and in one case he reverted completely to his true form. By the end of his encounters with Katie, he finds that he's actually been charmed by her instead.

In the games, Venoct and Kyubi are treated like opposites. For example, in the second game, Kyubi is part of the Fleshy Souls while Venoct is part of the Bony Spirits. In the Oni update of the second game, Kyubi got a dark form called Darkyubi while Venoct got a light form called Illuminoct. The Crank-a-kai exclusive yo-kai required to unlock Gilgaros that resembles Kyubi, Frostail, is a good, but still proud and arrogant, Yo-kai that brings good luck, while the Yo-kai that looks like Venoct, Shadow Venoct, is a dark, assassin Yo-kai.

In the manga it is shown that he likes to conquer as if it were a game, he also shows an explosive and selfish personality that only saves someone just to conquer him, he is very sustenance to deception as the trick of Shogunyan, he does not think he can be a good friend maybe because he knows he behaves like a child.

Profile

Yo-kai Watch

In the games, he is Springdale's resident guardian Yo-kai who protects the town and the humans who live there. He once had a shrine dedicated to him near Shopper's Row. When Shopper's Row was expanded in the succeeding decades, his shrine was taken down. Evidently he was not offended by this action, and continued to stay on as the town's guardian.

Kyubi can be befriended by completing the quests after finishing the game which are Flower For The Shrine, An Offered Sword and Take Out Tengu!. After the quests are finished, The Legendary Kyubi can be activated which will be befriended after the quest.

Yo-kai Watch 2

He is revealed to be the member of the Fleshy Souls.

There is a second Kyubi which appears in a Quest exclusive to Psychic Specters. This Kyubi is a student and still training to become fully-fledged, and as a result he's younger than Springdale's guardian. His subquest involves finding girls for him to charm, and then collect the Heart Orbs that are created by successfully charming them. This quest ultimately requires finding and talking to the majority of female NPCs in Springdale, though Kyubi is quite adept at charming women, two characters prove immune to him.

Yo-kai Watch Blasters

In his mission in Chapter 11, he can be rarely befriended after clearing said mission.

Yo-kai Watch: Wibble Wobble

Kyubi was obtainable through the Crank-a-kai with Y-Money, One Star Coins, Yellow Coins, and Yellow Coin Gs.

Yo-kai Watch 3

Kyubi is befriended as a reward for completing the request The Tall Tail of the Fox Curse! at the Detective Agency, available after completing Chapter 10 and upgrading the Yo-kai Watch to Rank S.

Alternatively he can be freed from the Crank-a-kai with a Legend Coin.

Yo-kai Watch Busters 2

Kyubi, along with Venoct, appears as a daily battle on the beach of the Blasters Base camp upon clearing Chapter 10

Video games

In the first game, Kyubi lures Nate/Katie to the construction tower at night. At first, it seems as though Nate/Katie is about to face Kyubi himself, but instead another Yo-kai, Massiface, approaches Nate/Katie to fight them instead. After Massiface is defeated, it turns out that Kyubi was trying to get rid of the giant Boss Yo-kai, and decided to use the player as a way to take care of Massiface.

He later appeared when McKraken's goons started to flood into Uptown Springdale, taking care of a few of them to allow the player the window to create the seal for the Yo-kai Elevator.

In the second game he plays a minor role as one of the Fleshy Souls, and then later appears at the end of the quest to unlock his nightly encounters.

In the third game, he appears in Chapter 6 with Venoct to represent the Elite Yo-kai in the Yopple HQ tour.

Sidequests

In the sequel of the second game, there is a sidequest from a different Kyubi at the base of Excellent Tower, Springdale, which you can get to by taking the subway or using Mirapo's Warp.

Etymology

"Kyubi" (Japanese: 九尾 Kyūbi) translates as "nine tails".

Origin

Kyubi is based on a kyūbi-no-kitsune (Japanese: 九尾の狐) or nine-tailed kitsune (supernaturally-endowed fox). As they grow more powerful with the passing of years, kitsune grow a new tail with each century of age: once they grow their ninth and last tail, their fur will turn white or golden, and their power will reach its maximum. Kyūbi-no-kitsune is gifted with immense wisdom, powerful magic abilities, and can even see and hear everything in the world. They're especially proficient in weaving illusions, and wielding spirit flames called kitsune-bi ("fox fire"). Like tanuki, all kitsune can also shape-shift, though they prefer to take on the appearance of beautiful men and women.

Trivia

  • Making his first appearance in EP018, Kyubi has his medal registered in the Yo-kai Medallium despite not meeting Nate formally until EP031.
  • In Yo-kai Watch 3, Kyubi has a unique ability in the Yo-kai Vacuum Cleaner, where he has an "increased chance of collecting the medals of female Yo-kai."
