The Flying Moai appear as tiny moai heads which fly in a row pattern before shooting small ion rings at the player and leaving the screen. They are a parody of the Fan/Bellberg formations from the Gradius series and their variations. Each Parodius game features a different group of Flying Moai, each individual wearing a unique goofy makeup.
If the entire row of Flying Moais is destroyed, the last one will drop a capsule.
