Monster Bird (ト モンスターバード Monsterbird) is a robot that appeared in episodes 5 and 6 of Iron King.
- Height: Unknown
- Weight: Unknown
- Origin: Japan
Setting aside their death plans for Gentaro, the Shiranui sent their next monster to attack a passenger airline. Killing nearly everyone onboard, the wake of death left a woman fatherless and filled with anger. This utter hate drove her to hunt down the monster that patrolled the skies of Japan with a bloodlust that was unsurpassed. Together, the woman and Gentaro hopped into a small jet and proceeded to battle the Monster Bird. Their weaponless plane was no match, forcing Goro to transform into Iron King and battle. However, the aerial machine was too powerful. Its steam blast quickly dehydrated the hero, forcing him into total retreat.
The supersonic machine was not seen again until it was summon to destroy a large dam. Using its hand blasts, the monster was about to succeeded when Gentaro stepped in. He bought Goro enough time to be able to transform into Iron King and battle the wicked machine a second time. However, the Monster Bird was still too powerful. The battle took them to the depths of a lake before they both emerged. Taking to the air, the Monster Bird began to spin and completely crippled Iron King with its nova blast! However, as the machine took flight after Gentaro, the agent used his Iron Belt to destroy its control receiver! Instantly, the deadly robot was engulfed in flames and fell to the Earth, exploding on contact.
