""It's difficult since he's very aware...But no one can escape the magical eye. Leave it to me. That guy, he might drop his guard when he's in a place with no other people. Maybe he'll use the sealing character.""
―Isagitsune's first words when Shitari checked in on his progress and after being reminded of Shitari's plan to find out what the sealing kanji looked like.[src]
""I didn't know there was a sixth Shinkenger! What a strange stance. These guys will do for you. Nanashi Renchuu, come out!""
―Isagitsune reacting to Genta as ShinkenGold and summoning some Nanashi to help him.[src]
""Eight Spanning Crows Spell!""
―Isagitsune calling forth his crows to fight ShinkenGold and his final words before his initial defeat.[src]
""You bastard! How dare you!""
―Isagitsune when he enlarged.[src]
""What a regret!""
―Isagitsune's final words before his death.[src]

Isagitsune (イサギツネ, Isagitsune, 17): Isagitsune is an Ayakashi master of the black arts with knowledge of 100 spells, armed with the Teni Yōsenken (天為葉扇剣, Natural Leaf-Fan Sword). Using his Fox Concealment Spell (狐隠れの術, Kitsune Gakure no Jutsu), he steals a hair from Takeru to conduct his Mirror Reflection Spell (鏡映しの術, Kagami Utsushi no Jutsu) to spy on Takeru to look for the sealing character until his cover is blown. His other spells include Fox Whirling Spell (狐つむじの術, Kitsune Tsumuji no Jutsu) (a spell where he summons a whirlwind around himself to blow away his enemies), Foxfire Spell (where he summons small bluue flames to chase and burn his enemies) (狐火の術, Kitsunebi no Jutsu), Fox Throwing Stones (where his eyes glow and he fires eye blasts to try and slow his enemies) (狐つぶて, Kitsune Tsubute), Fox Technique Reversal (狐技返し, Kitsune Waza Gaeshi) (where he summons a big black portal top absorb an incoming attack and then another behind the enemies to have it hit them instead), Copycat Fox (真似狐, Mane Gitsune), and Eight Spanning Crows Spell(八咫烏の術, Yatagarasu no Jutsu) (where he summons crows from his shoulder blades to strike down his enemies).

His most powerful technique is the Copycat Fox attack where he swings his sword, duplicating the sending back the attack he reflected at his enemies. When he did this after reflecting thier Five-Coloured Dance, it took all five down with a single hit and demorphed them.

He is destroyed by the newly-revealed ShinkenGold's Hundred Fillets after Takeru destroyed the crows with a wave of fire, and then destroyed by Tenku ShinkenOh with help from the Ika Origami.

His tricky disposition and mysterious techniques are the basis of the Kitsune (狐) of Japanese myth.
