Real-world information

In Japanese folktale, bake-danuki (化け狸?) are a yōkai, or Japanese supernatural beings, associated with the Japanese raccoon dog, or tanuki. They're known for having the ability to shapeshift in order to fool people. Despite being coined "raccoon dogs", tanukis are not related to raccoons, but are often mistranslated as such in English translations of Japanese medias, including the Animal Crossing series.

Statues of this yōkai are spread around Japan, each having eight specific features that are said to give good fortune. These include:

  • A hat for protection against bad weather or trouble
  • Big eyes for good decision-making and to see the environment
  • A sake bottle for virtue
  • A big tail for steadiness and strength, said to bring success
  • A large scrotum for financial luck
  • A promissory note for trust or confidence
  • A big belly for bold and calm decisions
  • A friendly smile[1]
