The Yawstrich is a highly specialized monster that can only inhabit the lofty perches of Air Island. Sporting four wings and one solitary leg, it has an innate mastery of balance. Despite these unique traits, the Yawstrich is most easily recognized by the shrill and unmistakable call it makes to announce its presence and communicate with other monsters.


The Yawstrich is a four-winged bird with one leg and spiky hair. Its body is bright pink-red with small orange spikes, its wings and head are pink, and its vulture-like neck and leg are orange. Like G'joob, this hybrid cannot be found on the Mirror Islands. When this Monster is idle, it stays in tempo by dancing and hopping.

Placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%. Below are the things liked by Yawstrich:
