The Eagle
Type Enemy
Characteristics The Eagle will pick up the Chicken or other Mascot if they are idle for too long.

The Eagle is a character in Crossy Road. Throughout gameplay, the Eagle may be encountered as an enemy (if you don't hop for too long.)



The Eagle has a color scheme similar to a bald eagle. It has a white head, a brown body, and a white tail. It also appears to be bigger than the chicken and can pick them up with ease.


When playing as Fish N' Chips, the Eagle may drop a dump and is replaced by a seagull. The seagull shares the same model as the Eagle. However, it has a different texture from the Eagle. It is primarily white with black rings on its feathers, and it has an orange bill.


When playing as any of the Pac-Man Update mascots, the Eagle is replaced by a glitch with a mixture of colorful numbers, letters, symbols, ghosts, and faces.


When playing as any of the Halloween Update mascots, the Eagle is replaced by a bat. The bat is roughly the same size as its regular counterpart.


When playing as Framed, the Eagle is white.


When playing as any of the Brazil Update mascots, the Eagle is replaced by a giant blue macaw. It has the same structure, but its texture is different; it is primarily blue with a black beak.


When playing as any of the Dinosaur Update mascots (except for Flat Eric), the Eagle is replaced by a giant red pterodactyl. It is mostly scarlet with red outlines.

Tap My Katamari[]

When playing as any of the Tap My Katamari mascots, the Eagle is replaced with a spaceship.


When playing in an underwater map, the eagle is replaced by a giant whale that will swallow the mascot.


When playing as any of the Space Update characters, the Eagle will turn into a UFO and will abduct the player.


When playing as any of the Africa mascots, the Eagle is replaced with a vulture.


When playing as Snow King or Dragon Rider, the Eagle is replaced by a black dragon with red wings and orange eyes.


The eagle is a threat because if the chicken (or other mascot) idles for too long or goes backward three lanes, the eagle will come and snatch the chicken (or other mascot) instantly. This will end your run.


The eagle is possibly the most easily avoidable obstacles in the game. Simply by always moving forward and not staying still for over five seconds, the chicken can avoid the eagle's swift death.




  • It resembles a bald eagle more than any other species.
  • When picking up some mascots, the mascot simply vanishes.
  • Sometimes, when the eagle picks up the player, it goes super fast backward.
  • If the player pauses the game just when the eagle picks up the player, the screen will appear to traverse forwards super quickly and it will not stop until the player starts a new game.
  • The eagle appears in the UK/Ireland update although bald eagles are not found in England.
  • According to the timer of the New Year Doll, it takes 7 seconds for the Eagle to come.
  • There was a glitch where the player sometimes instead of getting snatched by the eagle, it gets snatched by an invisible version of the glitch that appears when playing as the Pac-man characters. This was later patched. However for some reason, after playing as any Pac-man character the eagle seems to be invisible for the non Pac-man characters.
  • When the eagle picks up a mascot, a bird call is heard. Despite the character obviously representing a Bald Eagle, the call used is of a Red-Tailed Hawk! Bald Eagles actually sound like this.
