'''Type E:''' Humorous cartoons. This type was especially popular in the USAAF and Finnish air forces, and would often depict a popular cartoon character, such as Donald Duck or Batman. This type of nose art is common even today. It usually depicts either the war itself or the enemy in ironic or satirical way, and is usually connected to the individual name of the plane. The extreme example of this was a B-24M Liberator [[http://www.b24bestweb.com/itaintsofunny3.htm "It Ain't So Funny,"]] whose [[UpToEleven entire nose]] was covered with cartoon characters.

* In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', finding the right issue of ''Hot Rodder'' magazine in the post-apocalyptic Commonwealth will allow you to give your suits of PoweredArmor a shark mouth paintjob, which looks better on some models than others, but always grants a bonus to your Agility when worn. Alternate color schemes include [[HotPaintJob black flames on a red background]] or [[RealMenWearPink white scallops on pink]].

* Nose art and anything comparable has been banned by the USAF for fear that pilots may select something non-PC, thus offending Mother Gaia, or something.
-->'''[[Film/ApocalypseNow COL Kurtz:]]''' They train young men to drop fire on people. But their commanders won't allow them to write "fuck" on their airplanes...because it's ''obscene''.

'''Type B:''' The "[[PublicExposure Pin-Up]] Girl". Made famous in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, these designs often featured scantily-clad (or nude) women in suggestive poses. Many of these were very temporary in nature, and it was not at all rare for the pinup art to reflect the name of the aircraft (such as the famous "Film/MemphisBelle"). Though common among American aircraft in WWII and Korea, it went out of style after that, due to [[MoralGuardians certain individuals]] [[StopHavingFunGuys declaring it "obscene," "sexist," and "unprofessional"]] for young men to fly high-risk combat missions with such markings on their aircraft. [[BritsWithBattleships RAF]] aviators maintained the practice through the 1991 Gulf War before the same forces caught up with them. Colonel Kurtz delivers a [[ArmorPiercingQuestion scathing and spot-on assessment]] of the discontinuation of this practice in ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.
