** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E8TheLostTreasureOfGriffonstone The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone]]" reveals some more tidbits. Gilda hails from Griffonstone, a Griffon kingdom that is located in a mountainous continent across the sea from Equestria. Said kingdom used to be a proud one, but the loss of a precious idol broke the griffons' spirit. Griffonstone is in a rather sorry state, and all of its inhabitants are greedy, selfish jerks who won't do anything for free even if lives are at stake. Griffons are also seen to be more varied than just half-eagle half-lion, with some being part tiger or part owl and so on. All griffon names so far start with "G". The episode's portrayal of griffons is fairly faithful to mythology -- the love of gold, less than friendly relations with horses, and rivalries with cyclopean beings are all shown to some extent in this episode.

Gilda hails from Griffonstone, a Griffon kingdom that is located in a mountainous continent across the sea from Equestria. Said kingdom used to be a proud one, and strong, but the loss of a precious idol they based their national pride around broke the griffons' spirit. Griffonstone is in little more than a rather sorry state, decrepit slum nowadays, and all of its inhabitants are greedy, selfish jerks who won't do anything for free even if lives are at stake.

* It took surprisingly long for ''Franchise/Pokemon'' to to have a griffon among its creatures. When it finally did, in VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon, it was pretty weird one. Type:Null and Silvally are essentially cyborg Pokemon made out of parts of other Pokemon, but their basic shape (talons on their front feet, paws on their hind feet, and a beaked head) resembles a Keythong or Minoan Gryphon.

Added DiffLines:

Despite this, dwarves can still express a liking for the for their strength.
