A small Winged Alien Head chasing Ripley through vents.

The Winged Alien Head is a strange Xenomorph form resembling a Xenomorph head with wings. This enemy makes an appearance in Aliens (1990 video game).


After Newt is kidnapped by a winged Alien, Ripley decides to travel through the ventilation system. Here, Ripley is confronted by this creature, accompanied by a Drone and a Facehugger. After Ripley defeats the egg-shaped alien, she returns to the vents where the Winged Alien Heads reappear. It makes one last appearance in the last Hive with other Xenomorphs to prevent Ripley from reaching the Queen.


Like many other enemies introduced by Konami, the Winged Alien Head exists only in the arcade game's canon. As its name suggests, it is a flying head composed of a Xenomorph face and a pair of bat wings. Some are a clear brownish color while others are of a dark brown coloration.


They appear in small, cramped spaces. Some of them move in a slow and sluggish pace while others will fly aimlessly.

Futher Notes

  • The dark ones that appear the second time Ripley gets in the pipes suggest that they were born from a bat.
  • These Aliens appear in small places and behave similarly to birds.
