The Psychovultures' scientific name, Vultura Insanus, comes from the word "vulture" and the Latin word insanus, meaning "crazy" or "insane."
Psychovultures resemble hairless bats, though they lack prominent ears or noses.
A group of Psychovultures attacked Kong while he wondering through Skull Island. He used a large piece of wood and tricked a Psychovulture into using Electrical Blast on the wood. He used the now flaming piece of wood to shoo the Psychovultures.

- 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 Vultura.
