  • The friendly fan's Japanese namesake, the kirin, is said to be an equine beast with the scales of a dragon, the mane of a lion, and the tail of an ox. It only appears in areas ruled over by benevolent emperors, explaining their scarcity throughout history. This Oriental chimera would also be the inspiration for the Godsteed monster and its pallet swaps.
  • The friendly fan is the only alchemy recipe in the game that uses horse manure.
