I remember the character Kurama of Yu Yu Hakusho and I was reading his bio on wiki. It turns out he is also some type of demon fox. What do you guys think was the inspiration behind the Kurama The Kyubii?
Then Kurama From Yu Yu Hakusho in his demon state
Just thought it was a really cool comparison between the two.

As far as I know Kishimoto indeed named his Kurama after that character from Yu Yu Hakusho. It was meant as a tribute. However, Kyuubi itself was not inspired by that character, and is indeed a mythical creature from asian folklore.
Its actually a popular figure that finds adaptions in quite a few stories originating from asia.
