** The generic Azhdarchids from the [[Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs 2014 film adaptation of Walking With Dinosaurs]]. They're a much more accurate example, though.

* RWBY has a class of Grimm known as a [[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe Nevermore]], which is of course, [[CreepyCrows a gigantic crow]]. These are big birds, and are pretty dangerous, usually requiring multiple hunters to take down. Or a Gatling gun.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roc_(mythology) Rukhs]] in ''VideoGame/SonicAndTheSecretRings'' are, like the legend they're based on, enormous flying creatures. In this game, they double as TurtleIsland in that a civilization had been built on the backs of a flock of them in the past, each of them carrying roughly a city block's worth. Appropriately, they are found only in the stage known as [[LevelsTakeFlight Levitated]] [[RuinsForRuinsSake Ruin]].

* ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'': The Horned King keeps two Gwythaints, which he sends to kidnap the prophetic pig Hen Wen. They're portrayed as a sort of mix between a wyvern and a pterosaur, in a departure from the original book series where they're described as more like large birds.
