Kitsune is simply the japanese term for "fox" and nothing else.

The fact that Japanese used to believe that ALL foxes were magical and so are many foxes in japanese fiction (especially anime), doesn't change that the term "kitsune", per se, doesn't imply any supernatural characteristic and therefore, there's no reason to call anything "kitsune", unless you are speaking proper japanese.
Tails "Miles" Prower is not only a kitsune, but also a "zorro" and a "renard"! ;)

A mythical Japanese creature, with the ability to shapeshift - Usually takes on the shape of a fox, though.
They take on the shape of a human being to seduce others, and not unlike a vampire, they slowly feed on people's life force, able to do so in multiple short sessions.
A Kitsune can have up to nine tails, and the more tails it has, the older and wiser it is.
At the point where it has nine tails, its fur will also turn golden.

A rather well-known kitsune is Tails, the best friend of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Because of his age, he doesn't have the shapeshifting lifedraining capabilities others of his race have.
In fact, since he has only two tails, Tails is considered a very basic and young kitsune.
Possibly because of his age (8).
"Was that a fox...with THREE tails?"

A japanese shapeshifting fox creature, typically dismissed as folklore. however there are some real ones such as the tails doll.
the tails doll is a very deadly Kitsune. it's weapons of choice are the claws on it's hands and the large red gem on it's head that allows it to steal and eat souls.
