* ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'': ''Escape 2 Africa'': Alex's father Zuba has a huge notch in his left ear. It's explained how he got it 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.

Bob the Mouse is from the wrong side of the tracks, a true scrapper from the bad side of town; but how do you show this easily? Add some notches to his ears for that tried and tested "been through it all" indicator. The ol' 'circular chunk out of the ear' character design trick has been around for some time and most commonly appears on animated animals. It acts as a simple indicator of a character's [[CharacterAlignment alignment]] or [[FourTemperamentEnsemble temperament]] if within a group, usually denoting tough or evil traits or simply to denote [[{{Badass}} badassery]].

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', abstract conceptual artist [[Creator/TraceyEmin Daniellerina Pouter]] has these due to the fact Lord Vetinari expressed his criticism of her art by nailing her to a sturdy wooden post by the ears. She wears her ear notches with pride and continues to produce avant-garde art.
