* 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]].)

* Hoothoot and Noctowl from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' straddle the fine line between this and TheOwlKnowingOne. For one thing, they aren't Dark/Flying type (That was reserved for [[CreepyCrows the Murkrow line]]). However, they CAN learn a lot of good Psychic-type moves, may have as an ability either Insomnia (prevents sleep) or Keen Eye (prevents lowering of accuracy), and have two immunities. Ghost-types beware!

** In Ainu mythology, however, the eagle owl was seen as a messenger of the gods and worthy of reverence, and carvings of eagle owls on houses were used as wards against sickness and pestilence. Little horned owls and barn owls are viewed as being demonic beings, though, playing the trope straight. Though, while the little horned owl is considered demonic, it's said that it is able to detect whether someone has evil in them, and that if it averts its gaze from you or only squints at you, you have darkness within you, whereas if it stares at you with eyes wide, you are a good person.

As for barn owls, thinking them to be demonic after hearing the hideous ''screech'' they can make is perhaps rather forgivable.
