Kirin WHY!? (Short Monster Hunter Rant)

[This is under a MH4U/Gen context. I have not yet fought him in World]

Okay, why does Kirin have to be in the game? Its a lazy excuse for an elder dragon. It's so quick and hard to dodge. It's pretty much impossible not to get ran through by its horn impale attack, which it spams CONSTANTLY! In older games (not World), he has . . . questionable hitboxes. I actually figured that I should equip great sword so that I can block his horn attack. But. Nope. As I said, he is too quick, so that was a bad decision. He is also too quick for weapons such as the insect glaive (best weapon in the game even post-nerf, btw), dual blades, long sword and SnS, all of which are DPS weapons. I haven't fought him in World yet (considering that I bought it only 2 weeks ago), so I can't use mantles to counter it. It's freaking annoying to fight. Also, he spams his thunder attacks, ESPECIALLY the one that paralyzes you. He loves to paralyze you. ESPECIALLY when your palicoes are out of the fight. Ya know, the cat creatures that were put in the game to help you snap out of disabling status effects.

Don't even get me started on Oshiri Kirin yet. He is one of the worst element swap monsters in the game. His thunder attacks are replaced with ice attacks, which Oshiri figures out how to make even more annoying than regular Kirin's thunder. Wait, actually. I already got MYSELF started on Kirin. His ice attacks are annoying. I use, like, 9 of my 10 nulberries to get rid of iceblight. You know why? Because the minute you use a nulberry to get rid of the status effect, he just hits ya with another ice attack. And then, suddenly, you wonder where all your nullberries went. Oh, yeah. That's right. Oshiri made you use them all.

Anyways, that's how I STRONGLY feel about Kirin. I hate Kirin. I hope Oshiri doesn't get into MHWorld Iceborne. I don't want to deal with how annoying Oshiri was in 4U with the only difference being that Oshiri will have product to make his fair fluffier and his graphics better. Ugh. Kirin was a mistake. I question those who say that Kirin is the best/their favorite elder dragon. They must like pain. Or they're just bronies.

Okay, so, Monster Hunter World fixed Kirin's fight a lot. Now it is a lot easier because your attacks no longer bounce off it while it is raging.
