* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' gnomes are an [[OneGenderRace all-male race]]. They are capable of piling on top of each other and work in unison to function as a much larger creatures--like a "giant gnome" so to speak. They also puke rainbows. It's implied they [[FantasticDrug snort fairy dust]] as well, and at least one of them, Shmebulock, only speaks in PokemonSpeak.

As the page image shows, they do have a "weakness" to leaf blowers, although that's more due to them being a foot tall than any specific weakness.

*During the 1940s Dennis Watkins-Pritchard wrote Literature/ForestOfBolandLightRailway, about a community of gnomes who built a steam railway. This early Main/Steampunk novel can be described as Literature/TheHobbit meets Literature/ThomasTheTankEngine.

* Gnomes in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' are drawn as circles with arms and legs, rather than traditional stick figures like everybody else. They are desert dwellers living in a ''MadMax''-inspired ScavengerWorld, although for the most part it's nowhere near as crapsacky. They're technologically a bit advanced, but their main [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is that they use "gn" in place of "n" in all their words. Gnorm the Gnome teaches the skill "Torso Awaregness", for example. There are also the [=Sk8=] Gnomes, who sk8board.

** One of the more unusual traits of D&D gnomes as a whole is that they are also a zigzagging of OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame; D&D dwarves are dwarves by way of Creator/JRRTolkien, whilst D&D gnomes are dwarves by way of European mythology.

** ''ReturnToOz'' expands on this: in the film, the Nomes are also earth elementals that dwell in rock and stone, crafting the bodies they require out of those materials.
