KIRIN (MONSTER HUNTER WORLD)
Monster Hunter 2
Monster Hunter World
Kirin are Elder Dragons introduced in Monster Hunter.
Kirin resembles a unicorn, though a closer look reveals that it is covered in scales rather than a coat. Its majestic white mane and hair stand on end, as if charged with static. The monster often crackles with stray electricity.
Kirin can summon lightning to strike attackers, or the area around it. When threatened, it wreathes itself in lightning and its body becomes impenetrable.
Kirin appear to be relatively peaceful and passive creatures, yet they are quite capable of launching a powerful barrage of lightning attacks on their foes. Using their extreme agility, Kirin can literally run circles around their opponent, getting in close to gore an enemy with their horn, only to quickly dart away and prepare another assault.
Kirin can be seen in the Tower, Snowy Mountains, Swamp, Old Swamp, Battleground, Old Jungle, the Everwood, and Jurassic Frontier.
