Though always considered powerful and usually majestic, certain birds have their own special attributes as well. Eagles, for instance, are associated with power, royalty and empire while hawks represent aggression even in [[WarHawk the English language itself.]] Of course, being symbols of pride and power is not always a positive thing: They can also be portrayed as cruel or merciless. It should also be noted that, while [[OminousOwl Owls]] and [[CirclingVultures vultures]] are also considered birds of prey, they usually have very different connotations in fiction. Only add examples pertaining to them here if they fit the "noble, majestic, badass hero" stereotype.

* Pops up all the time in ''Literature/GuardiansOfGaHoole'', since birds of prey make up almost the entire cast. In addition to the owl protagonists (themselves a rare example of owls filling this trope as opposed to being [[OminousOwl scary]] or [[WiseOldOwl wise]]), we also have a couple of bald eagles who help Hortense the spotted owl rescue orphaned owlets from [[OrphanageOfFear St. Aggie's]].

If they appear in a {{Funny Animal}}s setting you can expect them to be among the most badass members of the cast and with a fearsome reputation. In a world with only humans, they may appear with the real world usage of heraldry or perhaps utilized by a WarriorPrince.

* Quite a few seasons of ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' have bird-themed Rangers or at least AnimalMecha. Notably ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman'' uses birds as its entire theme, in tribute to ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''.
** In any SuperSentai team with AnimalMotifs, [[TheLeader the red ranger]] will always be either a bird of prey or a big cat.

* Creator/MercedesLackey is very fond of birds in general, but particularly raptors. She even has a whole culture of people with avian BondCreatures called the [[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Hawkbrothers]], although some of them have [[CleverCrows corvids]] or something more exotic.
