  • Inside its feathers are strange yellow scales that are released when it erects its feathers. The scales put prey in a confused state once inhaled, making prey see images in places where they really aren't.
  • Despite looking as though it has normal wings, Malfestio has long sharp claws that are usually hidden while Malfestio isn't them on its wings.

The claws allow it to fly better, yet quieter.
