Cliff Screechers are bat-like Rahi.


The Cliff Screecher species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[2]

The species settled on the island of Odina, making use of the high cliffs on its coasts to hunt for prey.[3]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Cliff Screechers emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

It is said that the spirit of a Cliff Screecher is not housed in its body, thus making it immortal. It is given its name because of the sound it makes as it dives for prey. After knocking its prey down, it will swoop down on it, catch it, and return it to the cliff face and then knock it off again and again, until the prey dies from shock or fear.[4][3]
