Unlike the ordinary Kirin, this subspecies' body is mainly a dark navy blue, with violet stripes throughout. Its mane is black with light purple tips and its eyes are a luminous red. In addition, its horn is larger, has pink-ish color and features a spiraling ridge from base to tip.
Kirin Subspecies is able to summon ice shards to defend itself rather than the lighting strikes employed by its standard cousin.
It is even more aggressive than it's standard cousin.
- Its hide becomes much tougher during rage mode and require ESP to cut through it.
- Touching its ice block still cause minor damage and iceblight status to the hunter.
- If you fail to kill Kirin Subspecies before the quest time ends, Kirin Subspecies will not flee and you will fail the quest.
