Official Site BiographyEdit


General InformationEdit

Great Kitsune is a member of the Celestials, or "The Cosmic Nerds." Unlike Pete and Spirit Dragon, he is the Game Master of Universes & Unrealities, and as such, tends to take an indirect role in the game itself; he mediates rule disputes between Pete and the Spirit Dragon, and doesn't appear to think very highly of them due to their constant squabbling. However, he admits to King that he has a fondness for mortals, and has a personal policy of "intrinsic benevolence", so that the actions of the game will not bring them any harm. King meets him in Dog Days of Summer, where he explains while he cannot turn King back to a human, he can earn rewards for himself by willingly participating in the game.

At the end of Heaven's Not Enough, Part 3, he fully supported The Game ending, and each gave Pete and Spirit Dragon thirty seconds to try and convince the others to keep playing. When they both failed, he announced Pete and Spirit Dragon both as the losers, sentencing them to a lifetime of mortality. King finally gets his boon from Great Kitsune, who offers him a choice; living an easy comfortable life as a human, or life the way it is as a dog. King chooses the latter, and is turned into a dog for good.


Great Kitsune has a very mischievous personality, and most of the time is seen bearing a wide grin. Although he is inclined to follow the rules, he is known to pull a few tricks...simply to annoy Pete. He is fully aware that Pete and Spirit Dragon are incredibly immature, and has fun exploiting them over it.


Pete the Griffin
Kitsune doesn't think too highly of Pete, especially considering the fact Pete can be a jerk at times. Pete finds him annoying, and Kitsune finds it fun to annoy Pete.

Spirit Dragon
Another player in Universes & Unrealities, Kitsune keeps her in line as well. While he doesn't annoy her as much as Pete, he still has fun messing with her at times.

Of the three celestials, Kitsune is the only one who really cares for King's plight. He promises him a boon if he willingly plays the game, which he fulfills at the end of Heaven's Not Enough, Part 3. He also assured him his puppies would turn out normal in Housepets 5000 BC, Part 1 (after talking with him through the statue he left for him back in Dog Days of Summer.) The statue serves as a reminder of Kitsune's interest in King, Bailey, and their new pups, an interest King finds disturbing. In one occasion when he and Bailey have trouble finding a babysitter for their litter, King goes ballistic when Bailey blithely suggests asking Great Kitsune to care for the puppies while they're out for a movie.


  • When Great Kitsune first appeared, many commentors thought that Rick had watched too much of the anime Naruto, seemingly unaware that Kitsunes are a common Japanese mythical creature.
