* 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.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheScoobyDooShow''[[note]]Originally made as a revival of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'', but that's just nitpicking[[/note]] had a MonsterOfTheWeek called the Willawaw, whose attacks on a person were heralded by an owl hooting the pending victim's name. Since the episode included Native American characters, the lore was likely inspired by the Native American traditions listed in the "Myths & Religion" folder above.

* In ''UsagiYojimbo'', the comic reflects the Japanese idea that the Owl is a symbol of death. In one story, Usagi and Gen spot one perched near a hut. When they looked inside and found their old friend, Zato-Ino, in a hut and gravely wounded, that bird was a bad omen. However, they are able to successfully treat the pig and Gen spitefully goes out to taunt the bird and drive it away. Later the Owl is diving for a cute little lizard, but the little guy is saved by an attacking Tokage who tackles the Owl and eats it.

* An owl in the famous Silly Symphony ''The Skeleton Dance'' managed to scare ''[[{{Badass}} a freaking]] [[DemBones skeleton]]'' out of his lack-of-skin. (Though the skeleton DID pull himself together and [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments knock the owl's feathers off with his own skull]].)
