Fox, throughout the world, is best known as a trickster spirit or animal totem. In Japan there are the Kitsune, fox spirits that develop magically and increase the age and wisdom. The stories show a great range of personality for Fox, from a trickster to guardian angels, friends, and lovers.
In many cultures throughout the world, these ideas occur over and over again, creating a theme that marks Fox as a spirit guide capable of both cunning and guile. In the middle ages, and indeed mirrored in Disney’s “Robin hood”, the fox is shown to be a creature of wiliness and guile.
Even the term shenanigan, and all it implies, also invokes the fox. The word is thought to derive from sionnachuighim, which translates to “I play the fox.”
