* Hylians from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' series are distinguishable from regular non-Hylian humans (such as the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Holodrumians, Labrynnans]], and [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Ordonians]]) and other human-like races by their pointy ears. They don't exactly fall towards the [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman lower measures]], though; not only are the franchise's two main heroes, Link and Zelda, are always Hylians, but the Kingdom of Hyrule itself is Hylian-dominated. According to [[http://www.gamekult.com/actu/miyamoto-la-wii-u-et-le-secret-de-la-triforce-A105550.html this interview]] with Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto, this was inspired by [[Disney/PeterPan Disney's Peter Pan]].

** It's mentioned in some games that the big ears are so Hylians can "hear the voices of the gods." Notably, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Ganondorf's ears go from normal to pointed after obtaining the Triforce of Power.
** Early in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', Ganondorf orchestrates the kidnappings of several pointy-eared girls. Because Hylians are rare in this game, and Zelda is a Hylian and likely in disguise, by sending his minions to look for elf-eared females he stands a decent chance of nabbing her. Unfortunately for him, Link and his sister are also Hylians, and [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive her kidnapping kicks off the adventure]].
