For special types of Pteryx, please visit their individual pages below


The Pteryx is a giant bird, resembling the prehistoric Pterodactyls. They are aggressive and fiercely territorial, often found in flocks led by an alpha specimen. Pteryx are able to shock their prey using a medium-range lightning attack however, their first inclination is to charge and headbutt the player.  This is an unblockable attack. The pteryxes in Koa: Reckoning can be found in the Teeth of Naros region.
