Winged atlanteans are enemies that appear in Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business and Tomb Raider: Anniversary. They are similar in appearance to the crawling Atlanteans, but have wings and shorter legs. Lara can tell if some are around by recognizing the sound of their flapping wings.
In TR1, the winged atlanteans will fly at Lara and kick her with their legs. This could lead to Lara being knocked off high ledges and platforms. In Tomb Raider Anniversary, they have an extra ability to hurl fireballs at Lara, knocking her off her feet. They don't have as much health as crawler Atlanteans, but still explode when defeated.
