I agree with that one. Bits and pieces might have been done by others but the whole package with fire, makeup/costumes, pyro, flying is still unique.

0ther than the makeup "characters" KIϟϟ employs, what do you regard as particularly original that the band has put out, anytime along these many, many decades of KIϟϟtory?

Could be anything: a song, a video, a tour, a piece of merch ... a witicism ...
The adrenaline-fueled merchandising and marketing is massively impressive in its successes.
