    If my (somewhat meager) understanding of Daji is correct, Ahri would be the knockoff of her.

    At the very least, the concept of the Korean Kumiho (which Ahri is) and the Japanese Kitsune derived from the Chinese nine-tailed fox spirit.

    You are correct- All people saying Daji looks like Ahri is unsurprising since Ahri is based on Su Daji, Tomamo no Mae and other Hulijens/Gumihos/Kitsunes.

    Su Daji and Tomamo no Mae simple being two of the most famous due to their prominance in lore, and appearances in many other games such as Tower of Saviors, Fate/Universe stuff among many other games

    Yes to both.

    And going further... the Japanese Tamamo is literally based on the Chinese Su Daji.

    Yes, not just "the equivalent" but said to be the very same fox spirit that went on to possess Tamamo


    As far as people complaining about "OMG HER DRESS IS EVEN THE SAME CUT AS AHRI'S!?!?!?!111111??1!!" That isnt really a league rip of thing, so much as a Fox-being thing. Having an off the shoulder kimono is just fitting aesthetic for creatures who live to seduce. Some are evil, some truly love their 'victim" but the fact of the matter remains that these are very sultry beings. I see no problem with this style of dress being the particular theme for them, as other games have before:




    Warrior of Orochi has a different design for Daji but its just.. odd for me no other way to put it. Her Tomamo skin has a nice head piece tho. Gods of Rome's Daji is boring looking to me aswell.

    And I hope they won't mess it up with Daji! But I won't set my expectations too high, I might get disappointed.

    That's not correct, since the Japanese Tamamo is derived from the Chinese Daji, but the former incarnation is non-existent in the Chinese original.

    • In fact, the Chinese lore tells that the goddess Nuwa punished and led to the downfall of Daji.
    • Whereas, the Japanese lore tells that she fled to Japan instead, only to end by being shot by two human archers and her dead body turning into a poisonous pebble.

    Nonsense attempt at a sequel IMO, and an even more uninspiring ending.

    The Chinese wore the hanfu (see images).

    So- it is just the Japanese version where it is the same fox who went on to possess? Because I am sure I read that it was a related case(?)

    But regardless we shall take the Chinese one for "truth" atm since we are dealing with a Chinese Goddess


    Also, yes, I apologize for using a blanket term when the correct term is Hanfu, but I was more talking about the cut of the dress and that Fox-beings typically wear an off the shoulder dress that is either open or short below the waist.
