* The Zentraedi of ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' have these, with Zentraedi/Human hybrids sometimes expressing these in later series. A {{Retcon}} as Zentraedi from the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' series had normal ears, but after ''[[Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove Do You Remember Love?]]'' depicted its Zentreadi with pointed ears, the convention was picked up by later Macross productions.

* The immortals in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', complete with LampshadeHanging by Mr. Verres. Immortals' ears are [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=1109 super-long]], and more so with age. Elves, which are [[HalfHumanHybrid half-immortals]] in EGS, have [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=995 more conventional]] pointy ears.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has an... interesting history with this trope. Basically, ZUN can't draw ears, and usually hides them behind hair or hats. When he does draw them they turn out pointy regardless of whether they probably should. The first character to get ears, [[GreenEyedMonster Parsee]], is widely accepted as having Pointy Ears in fanon, and has had them semi-canonized by ''[[AllThereInTheManual Wild and Horned Hermit]]''.. The next, Orin, is a CatGirl, so the fandom mostly pretends that she only has cat ears[[note]]her portrait had two sets of ears[[/note]]. Then ''Double Spoiler'' gave ears to its Tengu protagonists, leading to something of an uproar in the fandom. Now some fans have decided that all {{youkai}} have PointyEars, others stick with them for Parsee and the tengu, and the rest just stopped caring.

* While he's not yet been seen in the games, the ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' manga featured a pointed eared alien named Kreatz who was on Samus's squad back in her federation days. Kreatz and his partner Mauk (a hairy pig alien) were clearly designed to be shout-outs to the two founding extraterrestrial members of ''Franchise/StarTrek'''s Federation, the Vulcans and the Tellarites. Interesting because the races' personalities were inverted for Kreatz and Mauk (Kreatz's species being the insulting violent one and Mauk's being proud intellectuals but assumed to be ProudWarriorRaceGuy (s) due to their appearances).

* 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.

* Fan works set in [[TolkiensLegendarium Middle-earth]] mention the pointy ears of elves far more often than Creator/JRRTolkien's original books. In some fan stories, characters identify elves by their ears. An elf might disguise itself as a mortal man by covering its ear tips. (Tolkien does not use the ears. In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', characters can identify elves by hearing their voices.)
