Kama Itachi JP: 鎌鼬  – A Weasel yokai that lives in mountainous regions & usually attacks in groups of 3's: 1st attacks to stun, the 2nd attacks to slice and the 3rd applys a salve, healing the wound: they attack with lightning speed. - used to explain why people would mysteriously get scars from winds while hiking.

They are often considered to be the best yokai at transformation: Theres a saying that goes: “Kitsune nanabake, tanuki hachibake, ten kubake”foxes have seven forms, tanuki have eight forms, but martens (i.e. itachi) have nine!

At the time, almost all stories where spread by word of mouth, Itachi's stories where commonly mixed up with kawauso (otters and weasels are similarly shaped/colored) and for a while they where considered to be the same animal.

This ones pose was inspired by: "Kamaitachi" (鎌鼬) from the Kyōka Hyaku Monogatari by Masasumi Ryūkansaijin - You might also recognize this yokai as the inspiration for the Pkmn known as Sneasel.
