The size, shape and length of the ears can vary, and this affects the nature of the species they're on. Normal ears with a slightly pointy tip? Probably a HumanAlien or an elf, but might be a demon or even a vampire, so be on your guard. Long and tubular pointy ears that are a bit ratty? Then it's a filthy monster/mutant that is AlwaysChaoticEvil and must be [[KillItWithFire purged with flame.]] Dog-like ears that move, with tufts of fur? Probably a BeastMan or WolfMan, back away slowly without making eye contact. Or perhaps long, gracefully arching ears? Then they're ''obviously'' [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]] or something ''far'' above mere human, and must be treated with respect and humility because they have all kinds of kickass magic and martial prowess.

* 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" trope in modern fantasy; "leaf-shaped" is generally interpreted as "pointy".
