In Japan, tanuki (along with foxes) have long been believed to possess supernatural powers, and there is no shortage of tales where they disguise themselves as human. The Narikama tanuki is one of the oldest ones still alive; he survives off spirit energyy gathered from the hopes and dreams of hard-working villagers. Adherents also believe that venerating him will prevent disasters and bring prosperity. His most devout followers are townspeople and samurai landowners.

How to Obtain

  • Journey to the Sekigahara Region

Strategies and Notes

  • The Guardian Spirit Talisman effect involves Narikama Tanuki jumping up to a target, then crushing it with an oversized version of itself. Inflicts knockdown.
  • Narikama Tanuki offers a number of interesting traits: an insurance policy for your Amrita, better strong attacks, 
    health restoration at low health, a chance to regain Elixirs and a powerful Living Weapon.
