Kraken Fish Type 1: => r4c2<>9

Sashimi X-Wing: 9 r16 c27 fr1c5 fr6c3

r1c5 -9- r23c6 =9= r4c6 -9- r4c2

r6c3 -9- r4c2

Hookay. I imagine to have a Kraken Fish one must first have a fish. In this case, it's the most basic of all, an x-wing (potentially):

- Code: Select all
`. X . | . . . | X . .`

. . . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

---------+----------+----------

. . . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

. X . | . . . | X . .

---------+----------+----------

. . . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

The fact that r6c2 is already solved to (4) makes no difference, and it's what makes this a sashimi x-wing rather than a plain ole x-wing.

Preventing the x-wing are two fins. If there was only one fin, this would be called a finned sashimi x-wing, so I'm guessing that since there are two, then that is what makes this a "Kraken" fish. Just guessing.

- Code: Select all
`. X . | . F . | X . .`

. . . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

---------+----------+----------

. -X . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

. X F | . . . | X . .

---------+----------+----------

. . . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

. . . | . . . | . . .

Now the two little chains come into play:

r1c5 -9- r23c6 =9= r4c6 -9- r4c2

r6c3 -9- r4c2

If the fin in row 1 is true, r4c2<>X.

If the fin in row 6 is true, r4c2<>X.

If the fish (x-wing) is true, r4c2<>X.

Is that what's going in a "Type 1 Kraken Fish"? Can I assume any fish will do, although the bigger, the tougher to spot (an x-wing is tuff enuf...)? How many fins can be involved? Is a two pound robin fat?
