Keep in mind, if won't have "real" Bushido, or Ninjutsu (depending on the special move added), and won't use all the moves. It will use bush/Ninj ONLY with respect to the special move chosen. I call it Ninjutsu/Bushido "lite". But it costs the same as the "real" one.
I found a high total intensity lesser hiryu (8619 total) in Lime Green that I used to make a Chivalry and FWW (with 120 Ninjitsu) beast. I like it a lot for champs. Yes, it has dismount and grasping claw, but nothing I could do about those innate abilities. I like the lesser because they are fully magic capable and have high total intensity to work with.
