Created By: J.D.Martin, aka JMycroft Name: Tanooki Gender: Male (We think. YOU try turning over a six-an-a-half foot tall raccoon!) Birthplace: Giant Land Friends: Kuribo Enemies: Kamek and the Koopas Good / Evil / Loner / Neutral: Good Description of looks: An enormous raccoon. Kuribo's pet. Can fly by whipping his tail around, and can turn
himself to stone, temporarily. Short Description of Life: Born in Giant Land. Moved to Sky Land, because he can fly, then was caught by Vittorio, who named him, and was given to Kuribo as a friendship gift. Mario Games that this Character would fit in (Made up games or Real games): SMB3 (as a fur coat!!! THAT doesn't sound very good...). Super Mario Parents. Currently: Unknown. Last seen with Kuribo. There is an item in SMB3 called the Tanooki Suit, but
since there are several of them, they might just be copies (we hope.) Other Comments: Like him? I thought he was pretty original. He's a gentle, giant woodland creature. This is
going to sound silly but here goes: They say that using his manure to fertilize plants causes
them to grow leaves that transform people into semi-racoons. Just a possibility on the origin of
the Magic Leaf..
