** In hard winters, they're also known to have attacked other small birds, cracked their skulls, and eaten the brains. Brains are fatty and therefore energy-rich, as well as soft and easy to eat without a raptor's beak - but it's still creepy.

*** African Crowned Eagles have been known to launch predatory attacks on children (Up to seven years old!). Also, skulls of human infants have been found in African Crowned Eagle nests. This is also the same species of eagle that killed our hominid ancestors as mentioned by the troper above, and because of their fiercesness and fondness for primate meat they are known as the "leopards of the air" by certain African peoples.

** ''All'' Murkrows in the series are a species of Jerkasses as their hat. Pun not intended.

** ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' introduces Phantom Chica a Chica based on the first one, but looking extremely burnt. She doesn't try to kill you this time...she just tries to distract you so [[BigBad Springtrap]] can do so. [[spoiler: Toy Chica returns but this time she's a subversion as she's out to help one of the murdered children pass on.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The Tall Birds in ''VideoGame/DontStarve'' are some of the fastest creatures in the game due to their long legs, and they always attack on sight. ''Don't Starve Together'' has the seasonal boss monster "Moose", [[MixAndMatchCritters a moose-goose hybrid]] that arrives in the spring to raise its moslings.

* Some people have theorized this is what TheJerseyDevil really was: some kind of large bird ( The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandhill_crane sandhill crane]] is a popular candidate)

** ''VampireTheRequiem'' uses them with the strix, [[OminousOwl spirits that take the form of owls]] who brought down the Roman Empire (and with it, the largest body of vampiric government in history) because of an ancient betrayal. They can possess humans as well as sleeping vampires, and the clan books hint they're returning for some reason...

* Archeops from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' (a prehistoric semi-flightless bird based on the '''''Archeop'''teryx'') has beastly attack and good speed. Unfortunately, it's a GlassCannon, and its attack and Special Attack are halved if its health gets below half.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Be Cool Scooby-Doo!'' has Game of Chicken, which strongly gives of vibes of this trope. The MonsterOfTheWeek is a "Chicken Warrior" which is basically a black face with menacing red eyes and a huge beak. The cave is full of bird of prey busts and the entrance itself is shaped like a huge open beak.

* While ''Walking With Beasts'' focused mostly on prehistoric mammals, the horse-munching ''Gastornis'' in the first episode was one of the scariest animals on the show. Although a bit of BadassDecay occurs when [[spoiler: its unhatched chick is eaten by giant ants]]. Also of note are the ''Phorusrhacos'' in another episode, though they don't present any real threat to the ''Smilodon'' we're following. Because nothing - except climate change and [[spoiler: the giant ground sloth ''Megatherium'']] - present much threat to a ''Smilodon'' (ArtisticLicensePaleontology on all counts)
** ''WalkingWithDinosaurs'' had ''Iberomesornis'' that were portrayed as type B. In spite of their small size they chased off a [[GiantFlyer giant pterosaur]].

See also GiantFlyer, KillerRabbit and SwansASwimming. Contrast with NobleBirdOfPrey. Compare with BatOutOfHell and ReptilesAreAbhorrent. OminousOwl and CreepyCrows are subtropes. {{Feathered Serpent}}s can sometimes qualify, though it varies. Related to GiantFlyer. Possibly one of the reasons why EverythingsBetterWithPenguins.
