Born: In the Middle Ages, somewhere in Libya
Habitat: Desert areas
Part cock, part bat, part snake: from this description you can understand why it's the the most ugly and evil creature of the world. Not only lives in the desert but creates the desert. Its breath destroys every living creature and all the vegetation. When this monster is hungry, looks carefully in the sky, emanates a wave of his fulminate breath and a dead volatile falls for dinner. And this is not all! The gaze of Cockatrice has the power to break stones. If you happen to meet a Cockatrice during a tour in the desert pull out a mirror and the creature will die for its own gaze.
Cockatrice is a monster in the class "The Winged." It is monster #23. In the 2006 remake, Cockatrice has a far more dragon-like appearance, standing on two legs with its large wings outstretched. Its chest and tail have plumes of feathers, and its beaked head sports what may be feather tufts, horns or crests. The trading card gave it a total points value of 123.

Comic Book Series (1991)
Cockatrice appears very briefly during the assembly of monsters on Monster Mountain in issue #1.
Video Game (1992)
Cockatrice appears as a normal enemy in Stage 5, Area 1. It simply moves back and forth, firing a beam at a 45 degree angle should the player be close enough to the line of fire.
Although the manual mentions that the cockatrice springs, this is incorrect. It only makes a simple horizontal flight. The manual entry reads: "Has fire in his eyes and uses it when he springs."
