Correct.

Okay, back to the ones from the game:

1. It flies without wings,
Strikes witout beak, teeth or talons.
It has no eyes, in its pointed head,
But it can kill birds in flight.

2. Up and down they go, but never move...

3. He gets short when he gets old.
He goes out then it gets cold.

You got the first two right but not the third.   This answer to this one does make more sense.

In case no one realized it, "Historical leader commonly found in burger joints," is the riddle.
No one cares to even hazard a guess?

No, it's not any of those.  This may be a difficult one since the term is a pun on a primarily American-used term.

King!

Re: Can you solve this riddle?
« Reply #255 on: 28 Feb 2013, 08:18 »
Nope. This historical leader was not a king.  Good try though.

Hint 1:
Spoiler: ShowHide
This was a real historical figure and a specific one.


Hint 2:
Spoiler: ShowHide
By the prerequisite of being a king this figure could never have been one.


Hint 3:

Guess "Burger King" would have probably been too obvious...

Joan of Arc (French Fries)

« Reply #259 on: 02 Mar 2013, 10:21 »
Ahh, fair enough.  I thought of French fries, but couldn't make the link between that and a historical leader.  I even Googled things like 'fries', 'chips', 'mayonnaise' in case any historical leaders shared those names, haha.

BTW, @Armageddon, what was the answer to the 2 eyes no head riddle?  Was I right?
