Night Chizzards are aggressive Chizzards that come out in the dark in most places where Chizzards and Blizzard Chizzards appear during the day; on or near trees at Shores, in Jungles, Taigas and Tundras on and around trees at night. Only rarely they also spawn on snowy planes like Frozen Deserts and frozen Oceans.
|Time to tame:||Becomes your friend in 15 seconds|
|Attack(s):||Talon strike: the Night Chizzard "flies" in place, striking at players with both of its talons.
Dive Bomb: the Night Chizzard "flies" around in a figure 8 pattern, then dives towards players, squawking angrily. Deals knockback, and may stun players.
|Location:||On Shorewood trees on Shores, Wildwood trees in Jungles, Oases in Canyons, also in Tundras and Taigas during the night|
|Additional note(s):||During the Night Chizzard's Dive Bomb, the attack animation does not match up with its hurtbox. You will not damage the angry avian by trying to hit it when it flies up. You must attack the initial starting position of the Night Chizzard if you wish to hurt it.|
These lizard birds will nearly always only spawn on the surface during the night, different from other night Creatures like Night Rocksters, Night Pigsies or Mirus that also roam Caves during the day. When sunlight hits Night Chizzards, they will start to burn with a blue flame and perish, not leaving anything behind.
Before April 2017, to kill a Night Chizzard, you had to strike them 40 times with a Twig, 22 times with a Wood Sword, 17 times with a Stone Sword, 9 times with an Obsidian Sword, 5 times with an Iron Sword, 4 times with a Diamond Sword, or 3 times with a Lumite Sword. With update R41 the hitpoints of Night Chizzards have been reduced.
These Creatures always drop Chizzard Gizzard, along with the universal occasional monster drops of Sinews, Bones and Globs of Goo. You can also harvest the same materials from them when they are your Pets, whereby you will always receive Chizzard Gizzards as well as Chizzard Egg after feeding them their favorite food.
