旺偏財,只進不出。據說它是龍王九太子,它主食金銀珠寶,自然渾身寶器,因此是玉皇大帝和龍皇的寵愛。不過,吃多了要拉肚子。有一天,忍不住隨便便溺,惹玉皇大帝生氣,於是一巴掌打下去,結果打到屁股,屁眼就破封住了。從此,金銀珠寶只進不出。

這個典故傳開來之後,它就被視為招財進寶的祥獸。它習慣懶惰的睡覺,每天最好把它拿起來模一模,玩一玩,好像叫醒它-樣,財運會跟著來。
傳說貔貅幫助炎黃二帝作戰有功,即天𧶽福祿,它專為帝王
守護財寶,故又稱帝寶。此外,因貔貅喜歡吃食猛獸邪靈,故又可避邪。
它有個造型,亦有七七四十九個化身。其口大,腹大,無肛門,只吃不拉,象徵攬八方之財,鎮宅避邪,專為主人聚财掌權。

古賢認為命是注定的,但運程可以改變,故民間有一摸貔貅
運程旺盛,再摸貔貅財邊滚滚,三摸貔貅平步青雲。
