Bradycneme is an Alvarezsaur from the Late Cretaceous of Hateg Island, 70 to 66,038,000 years ago. When it was first discovered, it was thought to be the fossil of an owl. It has only been found in Transylvania, leading to its scientific name, B. draculae.

In The Meida Edit

Bradycneme made an appearance in the final episode of Planet Dinosaur where it's shown catching a lizard and later after the K-Pg event eating a carcass of a sauropod called Magyarosaurus. However, it is Planet Dinosaur, is depicted as a troodontid and as fuzzy, while in real life, it is an alvarezsaur and had more feathers, including "wings". It also appears in the first two Fossil Fighters games, but is absent from the third. It is the only alvarezsaur to appear in the game. While accurately depicted with a coat of feathers, it is inaccurately depicted pronating its wrists. It's model is slightly based off of vampires, due to its name.
