My entry for @Markus Magnusson latest animation smashdown.

The Tanuki often appear in Japanese folklore as shape-shifters with supernatural powers. They are reputed to be mischievous and jolly, a master of disguise and shapeshifting, but somewhat gullible and absentminded.

The actual wild tanuki has disproportionately large testicles, a feature that has inspired humorous exaggeration in artistic depictions.
