Maybe it's iffy whether MODO Bass has it, but it does.
This is so otaku-oriented, no one's going to get this.
[Trilian has it, Keyscape doesn't
Spitfire Chamber Strings has it, Omnisphere 2 doesn't
MODO Bass has it, Massive doesn't
Broadway Big Band has it, Nexus2 doesn't
Prominy SC Electric Guitar has it, BFD 3 doesn't
Prominy Hummingbird has it, Stylus RMX doesn't]
When did I become a riddle bot?
The exact same approach.
[Since I can't think of more English ones for this, I'll just list the Japanese ones, which follow a similar pattern to the first.
Oiran (courtesan) = raion (lion). Maiko (dancing girl) doesn't rearrange into an animal.
Maku (membrane) = kuma (bear). Suji (muscle) doesn't rearrange into an animal.
Daraku (depravity) = rakuda (camel). Kinben (diligence) doesn't rearrange into an animal.
Karui (light) = iruka (dolphin). Omoi (heavy) doesn't rearrange into an animal.
Koin (coin) = inko (parakeet). Shihei (paper money) doesn't rearrange into an animal.
Baabii (Barbie) = biibaa (beaver). Rika-chan (Licca-chan, a similar kind of doll) doesn't rearrange into an animal.]
[She posted another one using emoji which I'm not sure I get, and that might not be translatable anyway.]
It's interesting seeing so many examples come up that didn't occur to me no matter how much I racked my brain.
I made a serious has-it/doesn't-have-it riddle. [A kind of riddle where the "has it" column has a certain quality that the "doesn't" column does not.] If you get it, reply with some other examples. :kissy face:
[Intake has it, exhaust doesn't
Surely has it, definitely doesn't
Dorothy has it, the Wizard doesn't
Tokyo has it, New York doesn't
Certain has it, absolute doesn't
Clinging has it, hanging doesn't]
[Spoilers for the solution and the original Japanese words: Read the syllables backwards, looking at the pronunciation moreso than the spelling. The Japanese version rearranged syllables freely, but also followed a theme.
Mago (grandchild) = goma (sesame seeds). Ko (child) doesn't rearrange into a food.
Gorin (Olympics) = ringo (apple). W-hai (World Cup) doesn't rearrange into a food.
Suna (sand) = nasu (eggplant). Tsuchi (earth) doesn't rearrange into a food.
Sashiba (false tooth) = basashi (horsemeat). Ireba (dentures) doesn't rearrange into a food.
Rubii (ruby) = biiru (beer). Safaia (sapphire) doesn't rearrange into a food.
Raiku (like) = ikura (salmon roe). Rabu (love) doesn't rearrange into a food.]
Girls who are like big dogs, with a smart and nervous side but they're actually affectionate, are super cute... (talking fast)
