The pao kai is a unique monster in Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. It is a flying creature that has a ranged lightning attack. It is vulnerable to fire and poison.
The player encounters two pao kais in the game; one in The Temple of the Spider and one in City of Flames. The first can be slain by lowering a portcullis down on it, while the second can be killed with a nearby ballista. It is also possible to kill them with ranged attacks and spells, but this is more difficult.
