* While owls are mostly known as birds of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Athena]], the barn owl and the eagle owl were sacred to [[GodOfWar Ares]] instead. To priests who used birds as means of divination, seeing either of those was definitely an OhCrap moment.

* ''Literature/TheSouthernReachTrilogy'': In ''Acceptance'', a letter written by the biologist about her time in Area X tells of how she found a peculiar owl on the island. It's never entirely disclosed, but due to the peculiar behavioral patterns of said owl -- not taking flight when she approaches, bringing her a dead rabbit, nesting close to her -- , she comes to suspect that [[spoiler:this is what Area X transformed her husband into]].

* Lechku (pictured) and Nechku from ''{{Okami}}'' count, even though, technically, they're not real owls, but they're [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot demonic clockwork owls]]. With {{Nice Hat}}s. [[WidgetSeries In feudal Japan.]]

See also FeatheredFiend, CreepyCrows and CirclingVultures for other types of scary, creepy birds. Contrast TheOwlKnowingOne.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'''s [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/bemzuul.htm Bemzull]] is a creepy-looking owl monster with freakishly huge eyes, capable of [[BeingWatched seeing things from a mile away.]] Bonus points for being able to MindRape its enemies when threatened.
** [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/mephilas.htm Mephilas]] is a Devil Bird pretty clearly based off Stolas mentioned above. Mephilas dramatically increases the intelligence of its master, but overexposure to him can induce existential horror and depression. Inducing this in victims is also Mephilas' signature attack.
** There is also [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/gloomstone.htm Gloomstone]], a tombstone-like monster which releases headless owls. [[WidgetSeries It's that kind of setting.]]

** The legendary One-Eyed Owl, the most powerful Ghoul seen in the original series. Rumored to be a HalfHumanHybrid prone to committing cannibalism, it appeared suddenly a decade prior to the series and began a killing spree targeting Ghoul Investigators. It was only when TheAce challenged it that the Owl was forced to retreat, going into hiding. The mere thought that it could show up again terrifies [[TheHunter CCG]], and with good reason. When it finally appears, it becomes clear just ''how'' monstrous a Ghoul can become.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'', the owl-like, long-tailed convor birds that show up here and there in the galaxy aren't malicious in any real way, but when they show up, it almost always means a lightsider is in danger from the Dark Side.
