That is one ugly-ass bird.

Preston Packard (Kong: Skull Island)

The Leafwing is a species of avian reptile kaiju that appears in the 2017 Legendary Pictures film Kong: Skull Island.


Leafwings are bat-like creatures with massive spiked proboscises on their foreheads. Their wings are green and they resemble green leaves.



Kong: Skull Island

The Monarch expedition to Skull Island encountered Leafwings on three occasions. While Preston Packard and several soldiers were looking for Chapman, they spotted a tree with dozens of Leafwings perched on its branches. Packard took aim at one of the creatures with the scope on his M14 rifle, shooting it in the head and scaring away the others.

James Conrad's group was beset by several Leafwings while traveling by river on the Grey Fox. Conrad and Slivko were unable to get a clean shot at the birds as they carried off Nieves, and the group could only watch as he was dismembered and devoured in mid-air.

Leafwings disturbed by the battle between a Skullcrawler and the remaining members of the expedition attacked the latter, killing several soldiers. Conrad sliced several of them in half with Hank Marlow's katana while rescuing Slivko.


  • Flight
  • Thermal vision
  • Spikes on proboscis contain an anesthetic agent


Skull Island: The Birth of Kong

The People Who Came from the Sky

After their V-22 Osprey was shot down over Skull Island by Psychovultures, a team of Monarch operatives witnessed a flock of Leafwings fly overhead.


  • Although the Leafwing is described as being a subspecies of the Psychovulture, the creatures' species names indicate that they belong to different genera entirely, with the Leafwing's genus being named as Icarus while the Psychovulture's genus is Vultra.

No, it's simply noting the fact that their taxonomical names would indicate that they belong to different genera, even though they are said to be the same species.

Some say the properties of the Leafwings also slow down the natural aging process in human beings.

There must be multiple kinds of leaf wings cause the ones in the film look completely different from the ones in the Comic.

So their prey puts up less of a fight after the first time they stab 'em.
