The Hikui Bird or Fire Eater Bird is a rare and near extinct bird that lives in Mount Kiwi's volcano and that eats flames.
StoryEditWhen Goku and Chi-chi find a book written by Master Roshi where he claimed that Hikui bird's feathers must be collected in order to create the Bansho Fan, they set out to find the bird to save Ox-King.
When the last Hikui bird alive appeared, he broke his own egg's shell to help the cub hatch. After that, both the adult and the cub looked at Goku, Chi-Chi and the old scientist for a few seconds before leaving the volcano and disappearing in the sky. The adult Hikui bird left some feathers behind, but they just disappeared when Goku and Chi-Chi tried to catch them.
