Batty Koda is the deuteragonist of the FernGully franchise. He’s a fruit bat who is one of Crysta's best friends.

He’s voiced by Robin Williams in the first film and by Matt K. Miller in the sequel.


At first, Batty seems to be a bit unhinged, showing extreme distrust in humans, he was used in animal testing, although it is not specified why, it is hinted that it was for both cosmetic and more medical reasons, like in the extended version of his rap. However, the electrode in his head and possible wires under his skin support the latter.

When the wires from his electrode are struck, he seems to hallucinate, possibly picking up on radio or television signals, as he quotes various TV shows and movies. The electrode obviously goes directly into his brain and mysteriously vanishes in the second film.

Batty is thoughtful, kind and caring towards his friends and the inhabitants of Ferngully, but he can be extremely distrusting to humans; however, once they gain his trust, he cares about them as well.

When Batty crash lands in Ferngully, he quickly develops a friendship with Crysta and tries to protect her from Zak. Batty calls Crysta a "strange little bug" and tries to keep her safe from the human world.


At first, Batty is skeptical of Zak because of his abuse by humans and has trouble trusting because Zak is human, he even wanted Goanna to eat Zak, however, he eventually came to trust him when he saves the rainforest. Zak is one of the rare humans Batty learns to like and trust.
