The nine-tailed fox can be found in multiple Asian cultures. China, Japan and Korea all have it in their folklore with some stories portraying it as benevolent and other stories portraying it as a bit of an asshole. In Vietnamese mythology, it's called Hồ Tinh and it falls in the latter category.
Hồ Tinh would use its shape shifting powers to disguise itself (often as a woman but not always) and lure wanderers back to its cave where it would kill and eat them. It was eventually tracked down by a hero named Lac Long Quan who vowed to kill it. Finally, at the end of a 3 day long battle, Quan raised his sword and beheaded the beast putting an end to its terror.
