Many of the common foes encountered in Phantasy Star would return for later installments. Wing Eye was one of the few that did not, so Phantasy Star: Deluxe Edition provides on of their very few appearances. A floating eyeball with wings is just not as menacing as they were considered to be twenty years ago, I suppose.

They've always been one of my favorite enemies. They're memorable, from the goofy name "Owl Bear," which I'm guessing is some Engrish at work, to the fact that they were unique to PSI. They also remind me of the flying eyeball from the Jimi Hendrix Experience:

Far out, man. ;)

I guess they aren't very menacing, but then the Dezo owl family was never very scary and neither were those slapping moles from PSIV. And then there are the rappies, of course.

Ah, Thunder fodder. My favourites. :D I loved finding large groups of them just so I could blast them to pieces. Though the slow animation made fighting them a pain if you got stuck.

I'm not sure where the name Owl Bear comes from. If the Chinese version is any indication, the real name might be "Devil Bat." :eyebrow: Yeah, I've got no clue how that transforms to Owl Bear.

One good thing about PS Deluxe's lack of animations is that you don't have to sit through the slow ones on large enemy groups any longer. It actually makes the game quite a bit shorter!
