** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has Guardian Skywatchers, flying variants of the [[MechaMooks Guardians]] that have the same deadly firepower as their Stalker cousins, but with the advantage of being airborne.

** The most infamous across the series are [[GoddamnedBats the dreaded Medusa Heads]]. They don't usually turn you to stone, but they do fly in a sine wave when you're on platforms. If the platforms are moving, or the ones who ''do'' turn you to stone show up, or god-forbid ''both at the same time'', they become DemonicSpiders rather quickly.

--->'''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd''': These games gave me so much stress as a kid, I developed a psychological complex: whenever I see wavy lines, I get fuckin' pissed.


* ''ComicBook/WonderWoman1942'': Atomia's Protron mooks have built in jet packs, which makes them more annoying than the usual mook as this was long before later writers gave Diana the ability to fly on her own.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series has T-Virus infected crows. They're not overly aggressive so provided you keep your distance they'll usually leave you alone, but if you fire a weapon then all bets are off and [[ZergRush you'll be swarmed]]. One of the most well-known puzzles in the series pops up in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil1'' where you must solve a puzzle involving paintings and switches in a hallway where a murder of infected crows are perched on the rafters: get it wrong and it agitates the crows, forcing you to make a mad dash for the entrance before you get pecked to death.


* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaI'' gives us the gorgon heads. They don't usually turn you to stone, but they do fly in a sine wave when you're on platforms. If the platforms are moving, they becomes DemonicSpiders rather quickly.
** A lot of the flying demon enemies in the future 2D entries also do this. The sheer amount of mid-air enemies makes the Axe subweapon very good in these.

** A lot of Harpies tend to show up in the clock tower stages, who love to hover above you and divebomb. Since the clock tower tends to involve lots of spinning gears, spikes, moving platforms, and yes the blasted Medusa Heads, it tends to make for [[ThatOneLevel a frantic and desperate time]].

Added DiffLines:

** ''Videogame/ZeldaIITheAdventureOfLink'', being much more of a platform game than other games in the series, has several. Bubbles bounce around the screen in diagonals and take a ton of hits to kill. Aches and Achemen are bats that swoop down from the ceiling, Achemen turn into a demon when they land and spit fireballs. Mobys are a bird that swoops down out of the sky and beelines at Link once they reach his height. Bago Bagos are a skeletal monster head that take soaring leaps across the screen while spitting stones. Ras are the animated dragon head statues and the LedgeBats of the game. Moas are flying ghostly eyeballs - the orange ones in palaces try to drop fireballs on Link, the outdoor types just try to fly into him. Girobokkus are a slower moving, armored floating eye that are invincible when their eyes are closed. Boons are fast moving dragonflies that rain rocks down beneath them, luckily they're fragile because they're very hard to hit.


** ''VideoGame/Borderlands1'':
*** The Rakk, which were hard to hit in the air due to their attack patterns, but could be comfortably killed with shotguns once they dived down to attack you.
