I love them all, but for me, Bon Bon is best kirin.

Interestingly enough, The Kirin are originally from Chinese Mythology, though in China they are called "Qilin"(pronounced Chee-Lynn), in Japan & Korea they are called "Kirin" or "Girin"(though "Kirin" is the Modern Japanese Term & "Girin" is the Modern Korean term for Giraffe), in Thailand they are called "Gilin", in Vietnam they are called "Ky-Lan"(pronounced Key-Lynn), but despite being referred to as the "Chinese Unicorn", the Kirin(Qilin, etc.) is actually a chimerical hybrid of several different creatures, though for the most part it is pretty much some kind of "Dragon-Deer", mainly due to the Dragon-like Scales & association with Fire, and the Deer-like Body & Antlers, some even say that it is believed to somehow be a relative of the Sika Deer.

And I think that Hasbro/DHX should have done a bit more to distinguish the Kirin's Design, like give the Males Long, Thin Mustaches like those of the Chinese Dragons.

Though it is too bad that they decided to go with the name "Kirin" for these creatures, because if they went with their original name of "Qilin", then it would have been perfect for some saying like "Chillin' like a Qilin", because of how similarly pronounced "Chillin" & "Qilin" sound.

Many, many years ago when I was in college, I did my final illustration project on Japanese and Chinese mythology, and oddly enough, Kirin were one of the beings I included in my project. I was happy to see that My Little Pony used them as characters at all, I always thought they were pretty cool. :)

Horn patterns seem to mark Derpy as a dude.=P (Razz)

It's weird that we try to think of nirik versions, despite them all looking the same when in that form.
Congrats on getting featured on EQD btw.  :)
