[[folder:Fan Works]] The reindeer in ''FanWorks/UnderTheNorthernLights'' do ear notching as a mark of clan affiliation as well as for cosmetic reasons (see Real Life for reference). It's mentioned that by the time of the story, it has fallen out of practice, and is only done by the very old-fashioned and the very hard (a good comparison might be a modern Maori who opts for a full facial ''moko'', and insists on having it done the traditional way).

* The [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Spiky-eared Pichu]], otherwise known as "Notch-eared Pichu" has a left ear with three spikes coming out of it. It has a unique game sprite, knows Pain Split (a move that Pichu or any other member of the line cannot learn normally), unable to be transferred outside of the ''Heart Gold and Soul Silver games'' and it cannot evolve. There's no interesting story behind why its ear is like that, and it's almost universally considered a PromotionalPowerlessPieceOfGarbage.

* A non-animal version occurs in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. Naki, one of the members of [[TheSyndicate Aogiri]], has several large chunks missing out of his left ear. He's from the infamously violent [[ThirteenIsUnlucky 13th Ward]] and WordOfGod states the chunks were ''bitten'' out by his CoolBigBro Yamori. It stands out since their HealingFactor means Ghouls almost ''never'' scar, and hints at his childish and violent nature.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'': ''Escape 2 Africa'' Alex's father Zuba has a huge notch in his left ear. It's explained how he got in the prologue. When he discovered that his son had been cub-napped by poachers, Zuba chased after the truck, and tried to free his son, only to get part of his left ear shot off by the poachers. By the time Zuba's vision clears from the blow, he doesn't notice that Alex's crate had fallen off the truck and continues to chase it. Fade to the present where Alex and the gang crash land in Africa, and Alex reunites with his parents, setting the second part of the plot in motion.
