    Etymology[edit]

    Wikipedia-logo.png
      on Japanese Wikipedia
    (kitsune): a fox napping in the snow.
    Kanji in this term
    きつね
    Hyōgaiji
    kun’yomi

    From Old Japanese. Appears in the Man'yōshū, completed some time after 759 CE.

    Ultimate derivation unknown. There are various theories. The most likely is based on the root form kitsu, which may have originally been onomatopoeic for the sound of a fox's cry.[1] The final ne syllable appeared for certain by the Heian period,[2] but its meaning remains unclear.

    Pronunciation[edit]

    Noun[edit]

    (hiragana きつね, katakana キツネ, rōmaji kitsune)

    1. a fox
      • 794, Shin'yaku Kegonkyō Ongi Shiki
        狐狼 上扈反, 倭言岐都禰, 又狐諼獸鬼所乘有三徳, 狐疑不定也, 狼音良, 訓, 似犬也, 倭言大神也
      •  (てい) () (ひく)いものは「 () (たい)」と ()ばれ、カメレオンなんぞにもできるが、「 () (がく)」はオラたち () (がい)では、キツネ (いち) ()のネコしか ()につけておらん‼

        Those lesser kinds like chameleons can make use of “mimicry”, but beside us, only foxes and a few cats can master “metamorphism”‼

    Usage notes[edit]

    As with many terms that name organisms, this term is often spelled in katakana, especially in biological contexts, as キツネ.
