The Bird of Kildarby[1] is a giant monstrous bird that was the pet of Lord Kildarby.

HistoryEdit

Lord Kildarby made a deal with the Ghostbusters that if they defeated the Bird of Kildarby, he and his army would leave their castle and Manhattan forever.[2] The team agreed and discovered the true danger presented by the Bird. They made a strategic retreat to Ecto-1 and quickly brainstormed a way to survive. The Ghostbusters managed to trap the bird by connecting two Traps to the Containment Unit and sending it in. Lord Kildarby and his army had nowhere to go so the Ghostbusters allowed them to stay if they tone down their habits of haunting the place during the day.

Tobin's Spirit GuideEdit

In Tobin's Spirit Guide, the Bird of Kildarby is listed. When it was looked up in the computerized version, the Bird was written to be "a very big bird." Nothing else was revealed by Egon.[3]

PowersEdit

The Bird of Kildarby has the power of flight and possesses above average strength. While in flight, it is able to tear off the roof of Ecto-1 and takes only 29.4 seconds to realign and attack again.[4] It also was able to crash through the wall of the Firehouse without taking any harm.

For an unspecified reason, the Bird of Kildarby was stated to be too large for the traps. It was confined in three Proton Streams and could only be captured indefinitely by the power of the Containment Unit.

TriviaEdit

AppearancesEdit

The Real Ghostbusters

  • "The Bird of Kildarby"
  • "The Grundel"
    • The Bird of Kildarby is briefly seen in an entry Egon Spengler flips through while researching the Grundel. The Bird's entry can be partially seen reading as "Terr..." (implying it may have been named after the prehistoric Terror Bird).
