The Psychovulture is an avian reptile kaiju that appears in the Legendary Comics miniseries Skull Island: The Birth of Kong.


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.

  • 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.
