Tatake (タタケ) is a Bake-danuki (Tanuki) that appears in Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls Online.

She joins the liminal exchange program to become one of many potential homestay boarders for the player to host.

Appearance[]

In her natural, non-shape changed, body, Tatake is a girl of short stature who possesses the overall body proportions of an adolescent to pre-adolescent human girl. As a Bake-danuki she has the ears, nose, hands, feet and tail of a raccoon while additionally possessing tufts of fur running along her cheek bones and sternum. The rest of her natural body is similar to a Caucasian human in appearance.

She seems to prefer wearing clothes of traditional Japanese design but with a modern twist; eg. puffed shorts with an obi belt and bells and a patch of fur to cover her chest and mini-skirt kimonos with detached sleeves. She also commonly wears a green leaf on her head.

Personality[]

Due to the established rivalry between the Tanuki and the Kitsune, Tatake has a strong rivalry against the Kitsune species and spends her time trying to establish herself as being better than them in everything; often attempting to be more erotic than a Kitsune and even going as far as proving that she loves fox udon more than a Kitsune. She also claims that many Kitsune have bad personalities and that Tanukis are pure.

A bit of a tsundere, Tatake accuses anyone who gives her positive attention as having a Lolicon complex due to her body being similar to that of an adolescent human, however, she may secretly enjoy being the object of lust for lolicons as despite her ability to change into any form she desires, she constantly transforms into provocative outfits while keeping her adolescent-like form and actively displays herself in provocative poses before the people she accuses of being lolicons.

A happy-go-lucky girl, Tatake tends to fight to right perceived injustices and shows extraordinary enthusiasm for aiding in the plights of non-humans, but when things become inconvenient she shape-changes into something and runs away.

Skills and Traits[]

  • Bake-danuki Physiology:
    • Shape Change: A Tanuki can shape change into anything they have seen, even if they have only seen it once. Professional Tanukis can even turn into Ghosts. They are also reputed as being able to change the appearance of other objects; such as turning pebbles into gold or feces into food.
    • Leaf Adornment: Most Tanuki's wear a leaf on their forehead. It is believed in some circles that this leaf is the source of their power.
    • Enlarged Scrotum: Male Tanuki's are said to possess a large scrotum and testicles which they can shrink or enlarge at will.
    • Musical Belly: By drumming on their exposed stomachs Tanukis can make a sound similar to a percussion drum. They often used this ability to lure travellers into forests with their drumming music.

Plot[]

Tatake, who had always been dissatisfied with the difference in the treatment of humans and liminals in society, gathers other liminal friends and runs away from her homestay house to make a “Raccoon Improvement Committee”. Myuu requests the player's aid in bringing her back home.

Zoological Classification[]

Main article: Yokai

Bake-danuki (化け狸) are a demihuman race that appear in Japanese folklore. Reputed to be mischievous, jolly, and masters of disguise and shapeshifting, they are also reputed to be somewhat gullible and absent-minded.

Originally deified as governors of all things in nature until the arrival of Buddhism, where animals other than envoys of the gods (foxes, snakes, etc.) lost their divinity, Bake-danuki are reputed to have the ability to shapeshift into objects and people as well being able to possess human beings. And they were seen as symbols of luck in some areas.

Trivia[]

  • Tatake (Makeover) was first introduced to the game as part of the Event: Tanuki Improvement Committee Launched! event on May 20th, 2016.
  • There is the saying that "the Kitsune has seven disguises, the Bake-danuki has eight". The Bake-danuki is thus superior to the Kitsune in its disguises, but unlike the Kitsune, which changes its form for the sake of tempting people, Bake-danuki do so to fool people and make them seem stupid. There is also the theory that they simply like to change their form.
  • Tatake has a rivalry with Youko due to both their species (the Tanuki and the Kitsune) both being legendary Japanese shapeshifters.
  • Tatake believes that it is the life's work of a Tanuki to deceive.
  • Many Tanukis masquerade as humans and live relatively normal lives.
  • Tatake loves the forest as she says it makes her feel calm.
  • If she loses focus, Tatake's tail appears during transformations. In Chapter 78 of the manga series, Doppel reveals that this is actually common because unlike Shapeshifters, the most other shapeshifting Liminal species are not that good at changing their shape as there is usually always features like tails or eyes, which remains unchanged during a transformation.
