- May not be able to retract the wings.
- May suffer from cold and/or altitude sickness, unless the users have adapting skills to the changes in altitude.
- Dependent of the user's physical abilities, stamina and strength.
- The user's wings may not be built for flying, instead only for gliding.
- Needs enough thrust and lift, so the size/condition of wings and the thickness of air are obvious problems to overcome.
- Because of the size of the wings needed, has to have enough room for both the lift-off and flight itself, not to mention enough speed to avoid stalling.
- Flight-ceiling depends of both the density of air needed to fly and breath, and how cold-resistant the user is.
- Some wings can be damaged or destroyed, causing user to lose ability to fly efficiently, stay airborne, or render them unable to fly altogether.
- Depending on user, may expend energy if they need to flap the wings, either when taking off, flying, or landing.
- Damage or destruction to wings may be injury similar to that of other limbs, leading to pain, bleeding, and infection.
- May cause pain/harm to the user when wings develop from their back.
