* The Owl in ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}'', a crime lord known for his vast intelligence network. Sometimes he's specifically referred to as "seeing everything", which, of course, is fitting for a recurring enemy to a blind superhero.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'' gives us the [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/bemzuul.htm Bemzuul,]] which is essentially an owl with oversized, creepy-looking eyes. While not wise per se, it is capable of telepathy, photographic memory, and even MindRape. Bonus points for having a name derived from B.E.M., the acronym for "Bug Eyed Monster."

* In ''VideoGame/KingsQuestVAbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder'', Cedric the Owl was ''intended'' to help guide the player through the game and offer insightful input. In practice he just [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper hung around annoying you]], [[DirtyCoward left when anything dangerous might happen]], made [[CaptainObvious inane observations]] ([[MemeticMutation "Graham, watch out! A]] ''[[MemeticMutation poisonous]]'' [[MemeticMutation 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]].

* Hoothoot and its evolution Noctowl from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', while not exactly Psychic-type, can still learn a lot of good Psychic-type moves. The Pokedex also states that they're very intelligent--Hoothoot's Platinum entry states that "Some countries consider it to be a wise friend, versed in the world's ways," while Noctowl's Silver entry states that "When it needs to think, it rotates its head 180 degrees to sharpen its intellectual power."

The second line of owl Pokémon ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'''s grass starter Rowlet has a notable aversion with its evolved form Dartrix. Dartrix is actually ''called'' a birdbrain, and is actually a BrainlessBeauty obsessed with its appearance and often bungling things and then making them worse trying to fix them.
