In the anime

Gary Oak has a Fearow that may or may not have been caught as a Spearow.

The Spearow who Ash attacked in the first episode evolved before Pallet Party Panic. Ash's Pidgeotto evolved to Pidgeot to defeat it.

A Fearow attacks a Pidgey in Carrying On and Fly Me to the Moon, Pichu in The Apple Corp and Team Rocket in Freeze Frame and The Big Balloon Blow-Up.

Team Rocket agent Tyson owns 2 Fearow.

Rico, the hunter of Ekans and Koffing owned two Fearow.

In the manga

Ran has a pair of Fearow she used to attack Shuu in Pokémon Getto Da Ze!.

Ash had a Fearow he caught in the Electric Tale of Pikachu. It was his first capture and he gave it the nickname of "Fearless", although it wasn't very obedient towards him.

In the Pokémon Special manga

Fearow debuts in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in ...But Fearow Itself! when a wild one kidnaps a mutated Bill. After being stopped by an Ice attack from Poliwhirl, Red catches it. It most powerful move is Drill Peck.

Professor Oak also has a Fearow that evolved from a Spearow.
