Valorant: Fox-inspired Valorant Agent Kitsune concept goes viral


Remember, the concept of the new Valorant agent Quantum? Proposed by u/DewyOtter four months ago or Valorant Agent Phase proposed by Leadre? a month ago. A same-like concept is going viral this month and is posted by dexerto in his latest blog.

Since Valorant’s release, the fan base has devised many creative concepts for the characters they’d like to see in the game. Even so, both are Initiator Class Agents, so we’re excited to see this new concept for another class: Sentinel.


With the Launch of New Agent Yoru, According to the official description that was discovered in-game, Yoru is “A native of Japan Yoru can create gaps, in reality, itself to sneak into enemy territory unnoticed. Strength and stealth allow him to take enemies by surprise – they won’t even have time to understand where death came from.” Here are Fan-made agent Kitsune’s entry, the Japanese fox goddess, and the witch of nature who will dominate Forces on Future Earth.

MM Artista’s Kitsune concept is based on ancient Japanese mythology, as foxes have become a major part of the country’s folklore. The artist has incorporated this wonderfully into his design. They describe her as “experienced in the art of witchcraft; she peeks behind enemy lines and tracks them easily. Enjoy the protection and the subtlety of foxes and surprise your enemies, always one step ahead of everyone.”

A great variety of abilities also comes with this mysterious description. Her abilities focus on her wild nature-based talents, and Farshield, Foxtail, and Fox Paws are all directly related to her animal heritage. Her ultimate invisibility totem also follows this pattern. The totem has a symbolic shape. A fox mask (called a fox mask) is often worn at Japanese festivals and ceremonies.

Here are Kitsune’s abilities:

  • Ability 1 which is known as “Fox Tail”: Equips a foxtail that is visible and relatively large, but that is immune to damage and leaves an almost invisible trail on the ground with a width of 2 meters and a maximum extension of 15 meters wherever she passes. Any enemy passing over the trail can be seen on the map by Kitsune. The skill is active for 10 seconds.
  • Ability 2 is known as “Fox Paws”: Equip Fox Paws that last 2.5 seconds and cause enemies not to know from which direction the sound of her footsteps comes from. Recharge every 30 seconds.
  • Signature Ability is known as “Fur Shield”: It Summons the protective power of foxes and creates a shield that leaves her immune to damage and lasts for two seconds. She is unable to shoot while this ability is active.
  • Ultimate Ability is known as “Invisibility Totem”: Place a medium-sized invisibility totem on the floor that emits sound within 15 meters and allows Kitsune and the closest ally to be invisible in 7 seconds. However, while running or shooting they are visible again and if the totem is broken the effect is immediately canceled.

Many Reddit users are pretty impressed by this design and concept. The similarities between the fox uploaded on December 17th and the latest agent Night are amazing. MMArtista was far ahead of the game, so it makes a lot of sense if we say Agents with the same ethnic background have similar ability styles.

The Community also liked the magical elements of her character design, as her folklore makes her stand out from the pack. She is the embodiment of a modern version of traditional Japanese culture, and she makes the perfect addition to the battlefield of Her Future Earth.
