* In ''QuantumGravity'', [[OurElvesAreBetter Zal]] does just about every genre of music, but is referred to as a rock star. And the incongruity earns him little love back home.

* In ''Discworld/SoulMusic'', everyone keeps asking Buddy (a parody of every dead rock star, ever, but especially [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddy_Holly Buddy Holly]])[[spoiler:as, you know, Buddy's real name "Imp y Celyn" translates as "Bud of the Holly."]] if he's elvish. (Which is worrisome for Buddy in certain kinds of company, because dwarves and trolls have a standing blood feud against elves.) At the end of the book, [[spoiler:after he's saved from an alternate universe in which he dies in a carriage accident,]] someone comments that there's a new guy working in the chip shop, and she could ''swear'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There%27s_a_Guy_Works_Down_the_Chip_Shop_Swears_He%27s_Elvis he looks elvish]].
** In the AnimatedAdaptation, he looks and dresses like Elvis.

** A quick gag in ''Discworld/TheShepherdsCrown'', when the dying down of an elf's glamour and imperiousness is described as "the elvish was leaving the building".

* If "Elvis" were a Latin noun, it would probably be in the third declension; therefore, the nominative plural would indeed be "Elves."
** Pronounced "el-waze", though.

* For one of his early TV appearances in 1956, Elvis Presley was mistakenly referred to as "Elvin Presley." Some viewers might well have misinterpreted that as "Elven."

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', one April Fools joke introduced the Bard class - a new hero class which would attack enemies via ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' minigame. Had this actually been introduced, one could have expected to find lots of Night Elf or Blood Elf [[strike:rockstars]] Bards. As a ShoutOut to this trope, the Bards on the World of Warcraft announcement were Blood Elves.
** [[http://www.wowpedia.org/Sig_Nicious Sig Nicious]] is an actual in-game bard of sorts, being the rhythm guitarist of the {{Warcraft}} mascot band Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieftain.
