It is always found in the first island, crashing the first time you approach its spot. It requires two gems to heal and eight coins to mount it. Since you can not get any gems on the first island you must first travel to any other island and then come back.
Unlike most of the mounts, the griffin does not require grass to refill its stamina and get the well fed buff. Since it grazes anywhere and during any season (especially useful for winter), the griffin is a good mount for exploring and roaming. This is because it is one of the fastest mounts in the game. Ideal for larger maps and for escaping the cave.

When its skill is activated by pressing sprint while standing still; it will stand up, spread and flap its pair of wings, pushing and paralyzing momentarily any greedlings (and only any variant of greedlings) within a short distance. The strength of the push and duration of the paralysis is stronger when invading a portal, compared to when it's used in defense.
