Created by the magic of Ratash, the Vultures encountered by the Prince are docile and will not attack the Prince at all. They appear at certain intervals of the game wherever the Prince needs to reach a certain area that is otherwise inaccessible parts of Malik's palace. They die after the Prince jumps off of them or if he lingers too long and fails to jump to the next vulture.
Vultures pose no threat and will not attack. However, If you see a vulture and there's no where else to jump, jump and execute a dash attack. This allows you to dangle on the vulture for a few seconds and jump towards either another vulture, platform or reach other interactive surface. Vultures are one of the weakest enemies encountered.
