* Literature/SherlockHolmes is a hero, but his nose is frequently described by Watson as hawk-like: large, aquiline, and pointy. Combined with his gangly physique, Holmes strikes a severe but not dashing figure. Creator/ArthurConanDoyle was always annoyed that illustrations made Holmes too traditionally handsome and heroic looking.
* ''[[Literature/TheAdventuresOfPinocchio Pinocchio]]'''s nose grows when he lies. This has permeated popular culture, with people drawing those who are perceived as liars (usually politicians) as having suddenly elongated noses.

* Gru of ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''. A subversion, that while he ''is'' a [[VillainProtagonist villain]], he's actually a [[AffablyEvil good]] [[AntiVillain person]].
* Chester V from ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs2'' has a long and pointy nose. Being an EvilCounterpart to Flint, whose nose is big and bulbous, it's fitting.
* Quite a few villains in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, e.g. [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Frollo]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar]], and [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook.]]
* Alistair Krey from ''Disney/BigHero6'', a sleazy businessman. [[spoiler:It turns out he's ''not'' the villain Youkai -- it's Professor Callighan. In an interesting twist, our first real hint Krey isn't Youkai is his large nose, [[FridgeBrilliance which is too big to fit into the mask.]]]]

to:

* Averted in ''Series/DoctorWho'', where most actors to have played the lead role have had prominent noses (to suit the Doctor's typical '[[SlidingScaleOfBeauty funny-looking-but-attractive]]' aesthetic). A lot of this is because a lot of the show's iconography was fixed in the 1970s, and both Creator/JonPertwee and Creator/TomBaker had strikingly big and oddly-shaped noses. The villains, on the other hand, tend to be [[UglyHeroGoodLookingVillain more conventional-looking]] or monsters with no nose at all.
