The genocidal owl is a character found in the fruit cavern. It has seemingly taken up residence there because of the presence of numerous fruit-like inhabitants, that appear to serve as a source of nutrition for the owl. In exchange for details about the Sunfish's plan, it asks the player to harvest fruit-flesh from the various fruit-shaped denizens of the cavern. The player is aided in this task by a bite of the owl's orange, which causes intense bloodlust and increased strength.
However, once the task completed, no new information about the plan is learned as the owl immediately betrays the player and kills him, a sequence which is portrayed in gory detail.
