* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': When Cersei has but a price of [[spoiler: Tyrion]]'s head, the fact that [[spoiler:he's a dwarf without a nose]] makes it very hard for headhunters to falsify their clames. Not that they don't try. They show up with [[spoiler:the half-rotten heads of other dwarfs, with their noses cut off postmortem. Cersei is not impressed.]]

* PlayedForLaughs in the ''Series/{{Monk}}'' episode "Mr. Monk Takes On Manhattan", Monk recognizes a tiny mole on the perp's ear. He then spends an absurd amount of time describing the ear to a sketch artist. Later, when interviewing a suspect, Monk tries to get a peak at his ear.

* Meta example in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' where the maid at the end of chapter 28 can be identified by the audience as [[SmallRoleBigImpact the bandit girl]] due to the small scar on her left cheek. Taken further in the anime, since it's covered by her hair until the last second.

* Subverted in ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', when Tarou notices a mermaid with RapunzelHair and is sure it must be Sara. It's not. ''All'' mermaids have long hair, and they otherwise looked nothing alike.

See also ScarsAreForever. For a DistinguishingMark that marks the ChosenOne, see BirthmarkOfDestiny. If the Distinguishing Mark shows that the character is supernatural or magical, it's MarkOfTheSupernatural. If it is meant to show that a character is (or is assumed by others characters to be) evil, then it's the RedRightHand. Overlaps with FacialMarkings if it's located somewhere on the face.

* Hiccup in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' has a tiny scar on his chin. In ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2'', it is revealed he got the scar when he was clawed by a dragon as a baby. When Valka first confronts Hiccup she stops short when she recognizes his scar.
-->'''Valka''': Hiccup? Could-could it be? After all these years? How is this possible?\\
'''Hiccup''': Uh, should I... should I know you?\\
'''Valka''': No. You were only a babe. But [[LukeIAmYourFather a mother never forgets.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcrbM1l_BoI In this video for Avicii's "Wake Me Up"]], two girls (implied to be either mother and daughter or older and younger sisters) living on a farm each bear a birthmark or tattoo of two triangles (the Avicii logo), the older on her right arm, the younger on her left shoulder, and are clearly shunned by others in a nearby town. At one point, the older girl rides her horse to a neighboring town, where she meets other people with the Avicii logo mark on their bodies. They welcome her and take her dancing. The next day, the older girl tells the younger to pack her things, because they're going to a place where they belong.

* In ''Literature/TheOrphansTales,'' the Girl who narrates the tales has dark markings covering and surrounding both eyes. They look solid black from a distance, but seen close to, they're actually tiny, tiny words which she has read and memorized.
