* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' introduced the [[GoddamnBats Cliff Racer]], a flying enemy with a [[HitboxDissonance dysfunctional hitbox]] so reviled both in-game and in the series' {{fandom}} that it was driven out of Morrowind offscreen by an AscendedExtra character who was granted in-game fame because the fans took such a liking to him.

Simply put, a Mook that flies, floats, or hovers, due to either having wings, a propulsion system, or supernatural powers. They may stay out of the player's reach, and will attack him from their advantageous position. Furthermore, due to their freedom in the air, they may tend to dodge rather well.

Because of this, they can be considered GoddamnedBats or, in worse cases, DemonicSpiders, especially in games where your character has DenialOfDiagonalAttack or takes {{Knockback}} (see LedgeBats for this case). Can be a type of KungFuProofMook if they're especially hard to hit normally.

Because of this, they can be considered GoddamnedBats or, in worse cases, DemonicSpiders, are often used as GoddamnedBats, using their speed and agility to harass the player until they go down, especially in games where your character has DenialOfDiagonalAttack or takes {{Knockback}} (see LedgeBats for this case).

* Try to knock the player back via CollisionDamage or by diving into them.
* Stay out of the player's reach and shoot them or drop bombs (or Mooks) from above.

Airborne Mooks in Platform Games, usually those that try to knock the player over, are considered a huge annoyance, ''especially'' if they're [[LedgeBats the kind whose sole purpose is to knock the player]] into a BottomlessPit.

BottomlessPit. However, if you can GoombaSpringboard off of them they can be used to cross BottomlessPits.

** Pictured above as the trope image is Paragoomba from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3''. Yellow ones fly high overhead to avoid Mario's attacks, while dropping Micro-Goombas that stick onto Mario and weigh him down. [[GoddamnedBats Definitely an annoyance whenever they appear]].

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has Dragons, which can appear randomly to attack you as a BossInMookClothing. They fly about 2/3 the time, so they do count as this trope. Thankfully, you learn a shout that acts like an AntiAir, forcing them to land.
