Winged Rhynocs[1] are a version of Rhynocs first seen in Cloud Spires which is in the Spyro: Year of the Dragon game. These Rhynocs are possibly a crossover between a giant bird and some Rhynoc. They do not damage Spyro, but do use their wings to make a gust of wind to blow him back. To defeat them, Spyro must jump over the gust of wind and then destroy them using a flame attack.

One of them can be seen bullying Nimbus by flapping his wings to prevent the imp from getting close.
