The Obelisk Island Bird (オベリスク怪鳥,   Oberisuku Kaichō, lit. Obelisk Monster Bird) is a pterodactyl-like kaiju created by Nikkatsu that first appeared in the 1967 kaiju film, Gappa.


The Obelisk Island Bird looks similar in appearance to pterosaurs such as Pterodactylus, although it is covered in dark green feathers, a trait not shared with these ancient reptiles. Its head is similar in appearance to that of a shoebill bird, although it possesses a large yellow beak similar in shape to a toucan's.



Venturing in to the jungles of Obelisk Island in search of his fellow explorers, Saburo Hayashi is startled by the Obelisk Island Bird which flies past him. He then comments "That almost scared me."


Being nothing more than a regular bird which inhabits Obelisk Island, the Obelisk Island Bird's only ability is flight.
