* The European honey buzzard is this to hornets and wasps. Its coat of feathers are specialized for defense against stingers, allowing the birds to rip into nests and devour the larvae while the insects can only defenselessly watch. This bird just happens to be the ''only'' natural predator of the much dreaded Asian giant hornet.

* ''BatenKaitos Origins'' has the Holo Holo Bird, a giant, jungle-dwelling ThatOneBoss whose difficulty is exacerbated by its minions, adorable babies who have the obnoxious habit of constantly healing their mother for thousands of damage points.
* Mystia Lorelei of the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Project'' qualifies on one angle, being a night sparrow youkai who hunts humans and can strike them blind with her singing. However, she also averts this trope, as TheChewToy of many a poultry joke in both canon and fanon.
** Likewise, Utsuho Reiuji is a Hell raven who went AxCrazy [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity upon recieving]] [[ILoveNuclearPower nuclear powers]], but is indicated to have since returned to her usual [[TheDitz birdbrain]] personality.

* One of the Dead Apostle Ancestors in ''{{Tsukihime}}'' is half bird, half vampire and has numerous bird minions and a Reality Marble having something to do with black feathers that kill people. Even the [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer other DAAs]] don't like him.

* ''HisDarkMaterials'' has the tualapi, white swan like birds that are flightless but use their wings as sails...and are carnivorous. Perhaps a subversion however, since they may not actually be birds, but organisms that evolved to resemble them, since they belong to a world were vertebrates aren't the dominant animals, and their wings are positioned one in front of the other instead of alongside each other.

* [[SwansASwimming Modern swans]] are already viciously aggressive. (If one comes towards you hissing, ''back off''.) Imagine facing their [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_Swan giant extinct cousins.]]

* [[SwansASwimming Modern swans]] are already viciously aggressive. (If one comes towards you hissing, ''back off''.) Imagine facing their [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_Swan giant extinct cousins.]]]] In fact, in places where religion consider dogs as unclean, the locals would keep swans as guard animals instead. They make loud noises and can attack intruders, just like dogs. And also provide eggs for the family.

** Also, the greater daemon of [[TheChessmaster Tzeentch]] is a [[http://kofler.dot.at/40k/units/Tzeentch_Greater_Daemon_Lord_of_Change_3.jpg giant bird monster]] called the Lord of Change. Also, while followers of Chaos [[EvilMakesYouMonstrous will invariably start to mutate]], [[BlackCrusade according to some materials]], those who follow Tzeentch specifically tend to develop avian traits ([[BodyHorror emphasis on "tend"]]).

* In ''{{Dragaera}}'', the issola is a sort of crane-like which appears really elegant and graceful, but is also a very competent hunter. This is noted as a metaphor for how the House of Issola has the [[PlanetOfHats hat]] of politeness and grace, but [[BewareTheNiceOnes you shouldn't think they are pushovers]].
