Fixed the spelling of Lt. Rasczak's name in the Starship Troopers entry (no, really, even though it sounds like it's pronounced "Radchek", it's SPELLED "Racszak".)
* ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' had a scene where a scout was grabbed by a flying bug, until Radchak uses a sniper rifle to kill his own man instead of shooting the bug.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Godslave}}'', the second ''ba'' takes the form of a giant, bird-shaped tree. Which, in violation of all rules of physics and then some, can actually fly.

* The Roc colossus in ''ShadowOfTheColossus'' falls into this category as it does actively attack you, whereas the Serpent pictured above simply flies around.

Note that Giant Flyers can be either literally gigantic or just relatively large compared to the other characters. Compare OurDragonsAreDifferent, DragonRider, WingedHumanoid, SpaceWhale, FeatheredFiend, PteroSoarer, LivingGasbag and LivingShip. See also {{Giant Swimmer}}s.

* RuneFactoryFrontier has a whale shaped island that you can use a beanstalk to climb onto. This island is intelligent and needs your help to defeat the infestation of monsters inhabiting the very large dungeon inside of itself.

* Subverted by ''{{Primeval}}'', in S1 in which the Pteranodon is explicitly stated to be a fish-eater and achieves no casualties other than an accidental injury, and the MonsterOfTheWeek is actually a swarm of smaller, flying pterosaurs who prefer DeathOfAThousandCuts to carrying the food off.

* The Wind Fish in TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening. Made sillier by its absurdly tiny wings. ** ''TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' has Levias, a giant [[SpaceWhale whale]] who flies around in the Thunderhead [[spoiler:and is intially possessed by [[BodyHorror Bilocyte]]]].

* The flying Colossi from ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'', Avion and Phalanx. Phalanx (pictured) takes the cake as the single largest Colossus in the game (it's several times longer than the final Colossus is tall). Interestingly, neither are hostile: Avion needs to be provoked into fighting you, and Phalanx mostly ''ignores you'' for the entire "fight", only trying to shake you off if stabbed.
