** The Fire/Flying-type Talonflame, based off of a hawk, is also an evolution of one of the early game birds, and its entries tend to focus on how passionate of a hunter and fighter it is.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Griffith, "The White Hawk", is the legendary commander of the mercenary band known as The Band of the Hawk - a LongHairedPrettyBoy who wears a masked helmet shaped like a bird's beak, he has an almost supernatural air of nobility about him which inspires his men to UndyingLoyalty. Later in the series he picks up a FeatherMotif, and his charisma grows to the point where [[CrystalDragonJesus the Church starts to consider that he may be their Messiah figure, the Hawk of Light]]. Unfortunately for them, he's actually [[TheAntichrist the other guy]].
** While most translations of the series render it as "hawk", the Japanese word ''taka'' also includes falcons. In a combination of LostInTranslation and LuckyTranslation, ''taka'' is increasingly replaced by [[GratuitousEnglish the English word "falcon"]] as Griffith shows more of his true self, including his cruelty and desire to reach greater heights (both traits associated with falcons over hawks). By contrast [[TheHero Guts]], one of the last survivors of the Band of the Hawk, is a tough, scrappy fighter whose [[SupernaturallyDeliciousAndNutritious Brand of Sacrifice]] forces him to become increasingly vigilant against danger (both traits associated with hawks over falcons).
