* Several comic books in the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' feature characters of [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sephi the Sephi,]] who very humanlike but with pointy ears. Fae, Aleco Stusea, and that one girl who was an obvious {{Expy}} of [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Princess Zelda]]. We don't hear that much about the latter two, but Fae was said to be a thousand years old, and was believed (at least by [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan Kenobi]]) to be immortal.

* Blink from ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''. Although why the ability to create portals would also give her pointy ears isn't known. It could be just a peculiar side-effect of having Teleport Spam abilities since Nightcrawler and Azazel also have them.

* Creator/JRRTolkien's hobbits have slightly pointed ears (described as such in a letter to an illustrator, but never in the narrative). On the other hand, his Elves' ears are only ever wrote about once, calling them "leaf-shaped" in a posthumously published glossary of Noldorin tongue. This is essentially the origin of the entire "pointy-eared elf" meme in modern fantasy; "leaf-shaped" is generally interpreted as "pointy".
