This game contains scenes of violence and gore, My Little Ponies, and a cute Khezu

Kirin was less tough than expected, health-wise at least, and it was very theraputic getting to beat on something that looks like a My Little Pony. Or… for some reason, it made me think of Bambi. As far as attack goes, due to the Vespoid set I spent the fight running around in, it hurt more to get walked on than to get caught by lightning. Either way, it died very quickly; from my previous experiences with Elder Dragons in MHFU, I was expecting that fight to last right to the limit of the quest… but it fell over around the 10 minute mark.
I still need two tails from it; two attempts and it kept giving me Lightcrystals and manes. I realise both are technically more rare than the Kirin’s tail, but that’s really no consolation when I want a new bow.

Now, about that Khezu. It’s the one in Small Shadow over the Swamp. Everything’s been… downsized. Except the damage – seems about the same – and the distance it can jump.
Watching it try to fight was pretty amusing. In the end this thing took longer to take down than the Kirin, though; it has much more health than even the Gathering Hall Khezu.
That said, it’s just as slow as a normal one, and with the wide-open spaces the Swamp allows you to fight in, more of a non-issue that the original ever was.
