There is a long-running tradition of using owls as a symbol of knowledge. This might be because their eyes resemble NerdGlasses, or because they are silent and mysterious. Most likely, though, it's because of their [[ShapedLikeItself importance in various ancient cultures]], especially [[Myth/GreekMythology the Greeks]], where the owl was the bird of Athena, the goddess of, among other things, wisdom. Ironically, Athena's bird was the owl not because the Greeks themselves saw owls as wise, but because Athena's patron city Athens (and its environs) swarmed with wild [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_owl little owls]].

* Owls are reoccuring minor characters in the Swedish comic ''Hälge''. They are, however, not really wiser than any other inhabitant of the forest they live in, but lean more towards being wiseasses prone to making ''really'' [[LamePun bad puns]].

* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', Cedric the Owl was ''intended'' to help guide the player through the game and offer insightful input. In practice he just [[StopHelpingMe hung around annoying you]], [[DirtyCoward left when anything dangerous might happen]], made [[CaptainObvious inane observations]] ("Graham, watch out! A ''poisonous'' snake!") and when he said something that actually could have been a useful warning, it was always too late to avert the catastrophe. The key here is he was designed to give information; he just [[TheScrappy sucked at it]].

* Peepsta Hoo dream eaters in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'' use a fairly sound strategy: [[EnemyScan scan an enemy for its]] [[ElementalRockPaperScissors elemental weakness]] [[AttackItsWeakPoint and then ruthlessly exploit it]] with high-level magic and tuned attacks. A handy spirit to have in your party, [[OminousOwl but in nightmare form...]]
* From the ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' series, [[SecretCharacter Jeanne]] had her own version of the titular character's [[CleverCrows Crow Within]] technique called Owl Within, in which she transforms into a blood-red owl. It's very fitting for her role in the first game, as throughout the game she not only acts as Bayonetta's [[TheRival riva]], but also as her [[TheMentor mentor]], reminding Bayonetta of the techniques she's forgotten and her role as an Umbra Witch. This could double with an OminousOwl as well, since for most of the first game Jeanne acts as Bayonetta's enemy.

* Sandorst from ''ComicBook/TheAutumnlandsToothAndClaw'' is a complete [[InvertedTrope inversion]]. He is short-sighted, ignorant, and a terrible judge of character. His daughter Enna is thankfully smarter and more rational.
