Tanuki are much like raccoons, and have the ability to change their shape, although only the more experienced ones can hold a form for a long enough time. Human form is especially difficult, and it is said that often one can spot a Tanuki that has been holding it for too long as their form begins to blur.

Male Tanuki are especially fond of sake (酒 - さけ - pronounced sah-keh) and other forms of liquor. It is a weak point easily exploited. They are vulgar tricksters, for the most part, delighting in tormenting the common people with their 'harmless' pranks.
