Archive Description

A carefree tanuki that comes and goes without leaving any trace, and that knows mystical arts passed down only amongst their kindred. It has the ability to transform into other objects, including humans.
Although they often tangle with a mysterious organization under the Shogunate, the tanuki are not a wicked lot and only tease humans for fun.
There is but one recorded exception: years ago, the bake-danuki who guarded Chinju Forest started a battle due to some conflict between their leader Ioroi and a kitsune. In the end, most of the bake-danuki were sealed within stone statues.

What is a Bake-Danuki?

Bake-Danuki are known to resemble Japanese raccoon dogs or Tanuki. Bake-Danuki have the ability to transform into other objects, so keep an eye out for their transformations!

Interacting with Bake-Danuki

Inazuma - Chasing a Bake-Danuki

Bake-Danuki are playful in nature, and their characteristic jingling can be heard from afar. Chase them down, and once you get near them, they will do a flip and vanish to a nearby location.

Inazuma - Bake-Danuki Chase

Keep chasing them down, and eventually the jingling will stop. You will now have to find an object that the Bake-Danuki has transformed into and interact with them accordingly, and you will be rewarded items (and possibly even Treasure Chests)!
