*** Pathfinder Gnomes also suffer from "The Bleaching", a loss of color and life that Gnomes stave off through a lifelong search for new knowledge and experiences. Otherwise, Gnomes can literally be bored to death. ''TabletopGame/{{Starfinder}}'' spins on this to splinter gnomes -- feychild gnomes are as described, while bleachling gnomes differ by ''surviving'' the Bleaching and consequently find themselves more even-tempered and better able to sate their curiosity with purely intellectual pursuits.

No-one is quite sure where this immunity came from, but whatever the cause it appears to breed true, so bleachlings are an increasingly common minority in gnome communities.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Ron Stoppable was scarred as a young child by a lawn gnome, thinking something was not right about it. However, [[ProperlyParanoid he might be onto something]] as not even a BigEater BlobMonster would touch it.

** The Scribkin are often seen as the quintessential Gnomes due to their appearance, work ethic, and curiosity, and they won't argue the point. They are hard workers (although they prefer intellectual labors to physical ones), and their natural curiosity drives them to advance the science of Arth. They are the only ones to use flying machines for transportation. After being driven from their home of Essenpi by the Kobolds during the War of Betrayal, they have managed to retake Essenpi, but much of the ancestral knowledge was lost, and they are only scratching at the surface of their forebears' advances.
** The Tinderkin are the tallest of the Gnomes, only about a head shorter than an average human. They have Elf-like features and their nomadic culture is reminiscent of Gypsies (in fact, on Arth, it's Gypsies who are often called Tinderchildren). Being the physically strongest Gnomes, they often work as professional heroes and mercenaries. They are quick on their feet and prefer the outdoors.

* In ''Literature/TheDarkProfitSaga'', Gnomes are one of the original four races of Man. Over the ages, though, the various clans have changed, both mentally and physically, and are now considered subraces, although the general term "Gnome" is the PC way of referring to them. Of note are the Halflings (Clan Haughlin), the Scribkin (Clan Tinkrin), and the Tinderkin (Clan Kaedrin).
** The [[{{Hobbits}} Halflings]] are short, rotund, and have hairy feet. They don't like to work and only value wealth and comfort. Their homeland is Hollinsher (formerly Haughlin-Shire), full of rolling hills. The most famous Halfling of all is Bolbi Baggs, a successful businessman and co-founder of Goldson Baggs Group, Inc.

** Additionally, in the ancient past, several Gnomish clans allied themselves with [[GodOfEvil Mannon]], who corrupted them into three Shadowkin races as part of his army, including Gnolls (Clan Galden), Gremlins (Clan Remlon), and Naga (Clan Nagata).

* Gnomes from ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'' are shown to have the traditional design (small physiology, white beard, red, pointy hat) but they are portrayed more as vermin. They do not speak English (outside the occasional muttered word that isn't interpreted as English by the cast) and possess all-spiked teeth that can eat through most matter like a shredder, and a sharp horn that their pointy caps conceal. They, however, do seem to possess some level of sentience, as primarily displayed by Gnome Chompsky.

* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone'', the one small humanoid who plays a big role in the book, Theecat Stefnable, is politely insistent that he is “not a hobbit, dwarf, halfling, gnome, or any other kind of smallman the people here seem to think I am. The proper term for me is ''Irorin''.” He's superficially like the common stereotype of a gnome, in that he describes himself as a “technological genius and rogue-for-hire” and does indeed have mad tinkering skillz that turn out to be very useful to the four later on.
