Wings are flying avian creatures indigenous to Pandora. They primarily eat small mammals and amphibians, and avoid human contact. However, they are highly sought after to be kept as exotic pets by animal trainers. Wings kept in captivity rarely ever take to humans and often kill their owners.

There are currently four recognized breeds: northern common wing, yellow crested wing, red tailed wing, and trash feeder.


  • Both Bloodwing and Talon are wings.
  • Only trash feeders and Bloodwing are seen in-game (Talon only heard through ECHO in Borderlands 2), while the three other types were shown in the Borderlands Signature Series Strategy Guide.
  • All wings hatch as males but undergo a natural transition to female halfway through their lives.
  • Corpse Eaters are the zombie version of wings.


  • Hunters aside from Mordecai have used wings for falconry, but this is rare.
  • According to the strategy guide, Wings are generally recognized as the flying, feathered friends of Pandora. There are four common types (Northern Common Wing, Yellow Crested Wing, Red Tailed Wing, and Trash Feeder) that can be found in almost any region. They tend to fly low over the ground, looking for something to eat. Much of their time is spent perched high atop open areas, scoping out breakfast options. Their diet consists of small mammals and amphibians, but they typically do not bother humans. Wings are sometimes kept as hunting pets by residents of Pandora, but this is very rare. Pandora’s indigenous birds are commonly called “Wings” by the local population. When asked why, responses range from “because that’s what they’re called” to "because "Beaks" sounded stupid”. Regardless of the name, they are graceful flyers and a beautiful sight to see.
    • There is also an error in the guide where a blue wing is shown under the name "Yellow Crested Wing", and a yellow wing is shown under the name "Northern Common Wing". These should be reversed.
  • It is currently unknown if Bloodwing and Talon are trash feeders or another breed of wings. Even Mordecai will admit he "never knew what species she was" if idle on his mission turn-in screen in Borderlands 2.
