Fox fire 3

Shippō using Foxfire.

Foxfire (狐火, きつね火, "Kitsunebi") is one of Shippō's main attacks. This technique is a type of fox magic. The attack is a wheel of dark green fire which Shippō casts toward the opponent, but it doesn't do very much damage. Shippō could not handle so well at the beginning and left his enemies with a touch of annoyance rather than pain. He began to master the technique, and became better with it the more times it was used. Another reason for his Foxfire not being too strong was because Shippō himself was still very young.
