* A similar gag occurs during the first TournamentArc in ''Manga/{{Dragonball}}''. Krillin battles an unwashed bruiser named Bacterian, and is nearly overcome by the brute's body odor. Then Goku points out that Krillin doesn't have a nose, and Krillin somehow becomes immune to the smell.
** Toriyama immediately forgets about this turn of events and later shows [[SuddenAnatomy Krillin first flinging boogers then sniffing a diamond that came out of Bulma's panties (don't ask)]].

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has a hard time deciding whether or not Patrick has a nose. Or ears, for that matter. Or fingernails. It also becomes a plot point in one episode, where Patrick gets a nose through plastic surgery and after discovering everything stinks he becomes obsessed with cleaning the world.

* One ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketch does a parody of ''Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'' with Franchise/{{Barbie}}, Franchise/{{Bratz}} and Franchise/MonsterHigh, and during it makes an allusion to the size of the Bratz characters' lips:
-->'''Jade:''' (after having the fat sucked out of her lips with a syringe) What did you do to me?\\
'''Mysterious Woman:''' I extracted every ounce of ass fat from that wang warmer you call a mouth.\\
'''Jade:''' (lips now comically shrunken) No, my lips!\\
'''Mysterious Woman:''' Oh, actually, you look way better, like... a real human girl.

* There have been multiple jokes in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' that Mr. Crocker's ears are apparently on his neck. In his origin episode they're even depicted moving from his head to his neck as part of his transformation into the hunchbacked nutjob everyone loathes, and it happens in reverse in one episode where he's briefly cured of his fairy obsession.

** In the attack on Azure City, Redcloak [[ShellGame creates Xykon decoys to confuse the defenders]]. When the Monster in the Darkness asks how he got them to look ''exactly'' like Xykon, he bluntly says he didn't. "They're human skeletons. I put a blue robe on them and called it a night." The only one that's at all visually distinct from the real Xykon is the Eye of Fear and Flame, which has a constant wide-eyed fear expression.
