Hellhawks got their name from the nether-like nature of their natural habitat in the Hollow Earth and their resemblances with hawks.
Hellhawks resemble giant bats with vulture-like heads, talons, leathery wings, and armored backs covered with thin strands of hair-like feathers. While not in flight, their posture is very bird-like, as they will fold their wings and tuck them in close at their sides.
Hellhawks make piercing screeches, somewhat similar to that of vultures.
Hellhawks are aggressive predatory creatures that inhabit the caverns of the Hollow Earth. They are easy to agitate and will relentlessly swarm any aggressor/prey they come across. They are fiercely defensive of their kills, as food is likely rare deep within the caverns of the Hollow Earth. This is seen when two Hellhawks have a brief fight over the corpse of an Apex soldier.
Hellhawks evolved deep within the Hollow Earth. Like bats, they prefer to inhabit caves and dark caverns, and spend their time hanging upside down from the ceiling.
A large flock of Hellhawks are first seen roosting in Kong's fortress within the Hollow Earth before they are awakened by Godzilla's atomic breath, prompting them to attack Kong and his human companions. Before the Hellhawks can close in on Nathan Lind, Ilene Andrews, and Jia, Godzilla's atomic breath bursts through the fortress and scares them away.
Hellhawks can use their leathery wings to fly through the air. They display high levels of speed and maneuverability while in flight.
Strength and combat
The Hellhawks' primary weapons are their beak and talons, which enables them to carry and prey on humans effortlessly. Their talons also allow them to cling onto walls and ceilings.
