The second round, starting now, and ending like the 21st or something, I don't know, we'll see. :P This round consists of things like birds, dragons, flying insects, etc, anything with wings pretty much. :P I think that's all I need to say here.

Would a flightless bird count for air, or should it be able to fly?

Flying or gliding animals would kind of be the whole point of this round, so preferably not? :P

But there's plenty of non-avian examples of flying animals you can work with, like:
Bats
Insects
Yi qi(a dinosaur with bat wings, look it up)
Pterosaurs

And as for gliding ones, there's:
Sugar gliders
Flying snakes
Draco lizards
Flying frogs
Colugos

to name a few. Plus there's the abundance of mythical creatures that can fly, so you have a lot of options.

Slapping bat's or eagle's wings on something usually works good too if you're in a pinch. =P

Those are the classics, there are more half-something-half-eagle/falcon/etc mythical creatures/deities than I can keep track of. Snakes and Lions are used quite a lot too and Bat's wings have gained more popularity with dragons and vampires being used so much in fantasy stuff.

I know they're classics, mythological animals are in my wheelhouse as much as real ones are. All I'm saying is that they don't have to be the only way to make up a flying animal. There are a variety of skin flaps and wing structures you can work with, don't feel like you're limited to stitching bird wings onto something to make it fly.

I know, but if you're in a pinch like I said then slapping on bird wings shouldn't hurt TOO much. =P

And since this is a Rahi contest and how treads work an land Rahi, build-in jetpacks, rockets, levitation and stuff could work too. =P

Not an abundance of propellers in Bionicle though, I've noticed. :p

Didn't those insect Rahi that bugged the Le-Matoran on Mata Nui have propeller like things? What were they called again? Nui Rama?

Nope, Nui-Rama just had really long axles that were supposed to kind of look like transparent wings if you flapped them really hard. :P

Looking at the Nui-Rama, it really just looks like it has a hang-glider, and you can't convince me otherwise. :P

Not quite, we still have:

Pterosaur wings
Scansoriopterygid wings(bird/bat combo)
modified ribs(draco lizards and flying snakes)
Sacs of lighter-than-air gases
wind manipulation
hoverboards


(Technically, "fleshy-gliding-things" are referred to scientifically as patagia, patagium singularly. Just thought someone might be interested in knowing that, use it to sound smart at parties. :P)

We forgot Gravity and Magnetic manipulation! *Facepalm* =P
Plus Winged Sandals, magic, Anime/Manga physics and... Oh! Pixie Dust + Happy Thoughts! =P


(Thank you. I was wondering what the scientific word was. I'll use it next time I'm at a party...

...which isn't anytime soon.) =P

Mine's mostly finished too(for once). Although, now that you bring up spiders, I'd almost forgot about this:
