A Flying Fowl is an enemy in the game Virtual Boy Wario Land. They resemble real life chickens with a beak and crest, although they are able to fly. Flying Fowls appear at the beginning of Stage 5, where they fly around tree trunks in the stage's background. When Wario approaches, the Flying Fowl will swoop towards the ground with its large, sharp beak pointing downwards, which may harm Wario. It can also swoop across the screen if Wario is a longer distance away. After swooping, Flying Fowls will disappear above the tops of the trees, and will only be seen again if Wario leaves the area and then return.

Flying Fowls can be defeated by Barging them, or performing a Body Slam. They can also be stunned by stomping or bumping into them during flight. While stunned, Flying Fowls will lie on their back, being vulnerable to attacks. If left alone, they will recover after a short period of time.
