The Pterodactyl has a large and scaly build, with layers of carrying five people on its back. His wings are under his arms and join his abdomen, his mouth is similar to a bird beak and has two horns on his head. In addition, it has tail and legs similar to claws.
A copy is seen being mounted by Najenda who was in pursuit of the members of Night Raid, when arriving, the ex-general attacked with the Pterodactyl to Budo uselessly. The beast remained on the ground while all the members of Night Raid climbed to it, however, in mid-flight the beast is shot down by Budo presumably taking him to death.
