The Icarus Tigris is a monster originally intended to appear in the 2017 MonsterVerse film Kong: Skull Island. However, it does appear in the film's Chinese marketing, the Monarch Files 2.0 featurette on home video releases, it is implied to exist In Kong: Skull Island - The Official Movie Novelization
Holy Tigers are named for their tiger-like appearances and their behavior as the most graceful creature on Skull Island.
A Holy Tiger resembles a giant Siberian Tiger, though white in color. Reddish-black stripes run throughout the tiger's body, and it's face is tinted a bright red. It also contains a pair of palish-blue eyes. Most notably, they adorn an impressive pair of stag-like antlers atop their heads.
According Monarch Files 2.0 the roar of the Holy Tiger is similar to a Tiger's roar.
Holy Tigers are elusive and almost mystical in nature, and they seem to avoid direct contact with humans.
This is the translation of the Chinese bio of Holy Tiger's:
He is the most graceful and amazing creature on skull island, many members in the exploring party mistaken it as only an illusion when they first see him. In forest, jagged leaves on his body are shining in the wind. When we observed him from a short distance, we got many feeling including dizziness, wild joy, even hearing its heartbeat. Aborigines on this island awe and fear him, and call him "Highness in the Wind".
In the official novelization of Kong: Skull Island, while in the jungle, Conrad observes the tracks of an animal. Due to its characteristics, the tracks were possibly left by a feline, which he estimates to be at least one-and-a-half meters long. However, the creature itself is never seen by the group in Skull Island.
It is said that Holy Tigers can camouflage very well into the foliage of the forest.
