Nine-Tailed Fox is a Boss in Nioh.
The nine-tailed fox is a fox-based yokai that has lived for over a thousand years and possesses strong magical powers. Foxes that mysteriously obtain magical powers become yokai, and then longer the fox has lived the stronger it's powers become, with the number of tails it possesses increasing as well. Fox spirits with one tail have only weak magical powers and are as intelligent as the average human, but those that live a thousand years eventually grow nine tails, and are believed to have a level of intelligence that far exceeds that of even the most intelligent of humans.

Melee Strategy: Many of her ranged elemental attacks can be avoided easily just by staying mobile. She has a huge range on her tail swipe and it's speed can catch players off guard. Her claw swipes can be blocked however this will inflict massive ki damage, especially if she chains them together, as she often does. Bait her melee attacks then dash in for quick damage.
Nine-Tailed Fox Lore

The entity often assumes the form of a beautiful woman, so it may seduce and devour motal men.
Notes & Trivia
- The spirits host is named "Lady Chacha" who might be a descendant of Tamamo-no-Mae, or the spirit chose a new form to pretend to be human.
- In Nioh 2, Lady Chacha is born to Azai Nagamasa and Lady Oichi, Oda Nobunaga's sister. Although she is never seen, she is referenced a few times.
- The Nine-Tailed Fox makes an appearance in Nioh 2, and that's when it possesses Lady Chacha. At the end of the first Byodio-In mission, two great yokai are released; Shuten Doji and Tamamo-no-Mae (Nine-Tailed Fox). However she flys up and out of a hole in the roof before Hide can do anything. In the next mission, in a castle owned by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who Chacha serves a concubine, one of the dead bodies will say that Lady Chacha suddenly seems like a different person, indicating that she has been possessed.
- It is sadly ironic that Lady Chacha was possessed by a Nine-tailed Fox yokai, as her mother, Lady Oichi, had a Nine-Tailed Fox Guardian Spirit.
