->''"She doesn't have any holes in her nose."''\\
''"Neither do you! This is a cartoon! Since when does the artist amuse himself with such little details?!"''
-->-- ''Manga/DoctorSlump''

You know that character who isn't TheBlank, but has an odd feature, known as a nose, missing? This is that. It is more common in Anime, but it can happen in any style. It might be just how the art style is, or the character might literally be lacking a nose.

This noselessness is a favorite target of a StylisticSelfParody.

SuddenAnatomy may allow The Noseless to grow a nose when needed. See also TheBlank, who has no facial features at all.



!![[AnatomyAnomaly Single characters drawn without a nose]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Krillin in ''Manga/DragonBall''. [[LampshadeHanging It comes in handy during the first tournament arc]] when facing Bacterian, a giant who defeats opponents with his terrible body odor. And later, when he fights Jackie Chun, it doesn't prevent him from [[SeriesContinuityError snorting boogers at him.]]
** Chiaotzu doesn't have a nose either.
** Krillin's daughter, Marron, didn't have a nose as a child but did by the end of the series and in ''Anime/DragonBallGT''.
* ''Manga/DoctorSlump's'' Arale doesn't have holes in the nose, and initially it seems like it would be a dead giveaway for her robotic nature... if Senbei didn't remind everyone that [[MediumAwareness no-one in this comic has these]].
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'':
** The anime includes a noseless Meowth in the Team Rocket trio. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in one episode when he panics, thinking that the smell from a Gloom has melted his nose off:
-->'''Meowth:''' Oh, yeah, I forgot! The cartoonists never gave me a nose!
** On the subject of Pokemon, Meloetta also lacks a visible nose.
*** Yet Meowth's still got a strong sense of smell, even using it to help find food a couple of times. He's also heard audibly sniffling back mucus after being given half of Pikachu's apple in "Bound for Trouble".
*** He also sneezes at least twice. One occurs during the orange island arc, where Team Rocket's sub gets stuck in a perilous position. Jessie instructs her teammates to keep very still, but her long hair tickles Meowth's face. The way the scene is animated strongly looks as though he HAS a nose, it is just obscured by fur. He sneezes and the sub gets sucked into a whirlpool. Later in the Diamond and Pearl arc, he sneezes while reciting the motto in Snowpoint City, and it is implied all 3 rocket members have caught colds.
* ''Manga/BlackJack'' has met in his teenage years a noseless classmate who was FunPersonified and taught him to laugh. At first, it seems he looks this way because he is stylized and cartoonish, but when older and less humorous, he is still depicted as noseless.
* ''Manga/{{Yotsuba}}'', most of the time. It was there for the first couple of chapters but [[ArtEvolution promptly disappeared]], and occasionally still gets drawn in when she's at an angle. Most of the time she's pulling a pretty solid Voldemort look.
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': Ed doesn't seem to have one either. Presumably some bounty got lucky with a knife.
** Maria from ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' shares this, possibly as a direct reference given the extreme similarity between the characters.
* The early chapters of the ''Manga/YuGiOh'' manga left Yugi's nose completely invisible from most angles. The [[ArtEvolution evolving art]] eventually led to it more commonly appearing, and by the end of the first manga volume his nose is permanently there.
* Manga/{{Toriko}}, several characters lack noses like Tommyrod, Lady Chiyo, Chinchin and Pippi the chef.
* Koshi Rikdo's AuthorAvatar in ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' is the only character in the series to lack a nose, for some reason.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Loki goes noseless in ''[[Comicbook/EarthX Universe X]]''. Curiously, in the scene that [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this, the same description (black-and-white costume, no nose) could also apply to the nearby Tao, though Tao's just wearing a featureless mask.
* The eponymous character from ''ComicBook/YokoTsuno'' is mostly drawn with two dots instead of a nose for most of the later albums, which also happens a lot to other, mostly female, characters.
* In the Image comic ''Comicbook/{{Stormwatch}}'', Nautika has no nose. Might have something to do with her living underwater and more or less being a humanoid electric eel.
* The title character of Ted Naifeh's ''ComicBook/CourtneyCrumrinAndTheNightThings'' also lacks this appendage.
** I know the name [[MeaningfulName Courtney means "short nose"]] but this is ridiculous.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Even ''Creator/{{Disney}}'' will occasionally suffer from this: Both Disney/{{Pocahontas}} and [[Disney/TheHunchbackofNotreDame Esmeralda]] are occasionally drawn without noses.
* Anger from ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' is the only Emotion to not have a nose.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* A minor character in ''Film/DirtyWork'' (played by Chris Farley) had his nose bitten off by a girl.
* The main character of ''Film/BadlyDrawnRoy'' does not have a nose ([[RogerRabbitEffect and is the only character animated in it]]).

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Jeannie in the animated opening of ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie''. Obviously not the case in the actual show.
** The German dub created a new animated opening which inflicted this on both Tony and Jeannie.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* The title character of ''ComicStrip/{{Cathy}}''. At one point she looked into [[LampshadeHanging getting a nose job]]. For the record, there are very rare side views showing that Cathy does have some kind of nose, albeit an extremely flat one.
* Jon Arbuckle in ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' doesn't seem to have a nose so much as he has a very, very long philtrum that goes up to the bottom of his eyes.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Many Franchise/{{Pokemon}} lack a nose.
* Some Robot Master characters in the ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' games are noseless, such as Cut Man, Flash Man, and Gemini Man.
* Several of the campers in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' are without a nose, including Clem and Crystal, Elka, Chops, Phoebe, and most notably Lili. One might later wonder [[FridgeLogic how this works]], given that [[spoiler:the kids' brains are apparently removed via a potent sneezing powder]].
* A classmate in ''VisualNovel/PrincessWaltz'' appears as a hulking brute lacking a nose. He seems much nicer, though.

[[folder: Web Animation]]
* Kirbopher is drawn without a nose in both incarnations of ''{{WebAnimation/TOME}}''. Justified, considering that the whole thing takes place in a video game and that the player behind Kirb could easily design his character without a nose if he wanted to.
* For some reason Tsuki from ''WebAnimation/TsukiDesu'' has no nose.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* The Guardians in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' can be identified because each possesses only ''one'' facial feature. Bro has eyes (or at least TriangleShades); Rose's mom has a mouth; John's dad has a nose (and constantly [[StandardFiftiesFather smokes a pipe]] despite his lack of a mouth); Becquerel has ears. Most other characters also lack noses, but have the usual complement of other facial features.
* Diana from ''Webcomic/CollegeRoomiesFromHell'' used to have a nose, but it disappeared sometime around 2006.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Mandy in ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''. Occasionally [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], such as Billy noticing it when they were toddlers. He put an ice cream cone on her face to "fix it".
* Many of the characters in ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', particularly Patrick and Plankton. {{Lampshaded}} on numerous occasions.
* Ed and Bev Bighead in ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. The former even lampshades this in two episodes while the latter did temporarily get a nose herself in one episode.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' are drawn without noses, nor is Sedusa viewed from nearly any angle but profile.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'': Iops like Sadlygrove and Sacriers like Kriss Krass aren't drawn with noses. They've still been shown to smell things, with or without [[SuddenAnatomy gaining nostrils]].
* The cats in ''WesternAnimation/{{Catscratch}}'' are noseless.
* Most of the girls on ''WesternAnimation/FredsHead'' are like this except you can see their noses from the side.
* Omi, from ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' is an odd case in that he's the only one without a nose, but also has a yellow skin color ... Think a combination of [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart Simpson]] and [[Manga/DragonBall Krillin]], and you won't be far off of what he looks like. Lampshaded when he tries to sneak up on Raimundo while invisible but fails because, as Raimundo puts it, "You breathe through your mouth, dude!"
* WesternAnimation/KickButtowski from ''Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil''.
* Several of the characters in ''WesternAnimation/HomeMovies'' have no visible nose, then there are glaring exceptions like Brendon.
* Zim from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim.'' However, [[JustifiedTrope he can get away with it]] because he's an [[BizarreAlienBiology alien.]]
* Particularly most of the monsters in ''WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters'', such as Ickis and Oblina.
* Milli and Geo from ''WesternAnimation/TeamUmizoomi''
* Liberty from the adult comedy ''Le Big-bang'', likewise Jane from the even more adult ''Shame of the Jungle'', both by French indie animator Picha. (It's the standard "sex bomb" look.)

!!Art styles which don't draw the noses of most characters

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* In the ''Anime/{{Claymore}}'' manga, noses aren't visible straight on, which makes people seem to have eyes about twice as far apart as they should. It's actually fairly creepy.
* The ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' OVA frequently fails to draw noses on characters seen from the front. The more prominent instances have drawn mockery from some fans.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* In the Canadian newspaper comic ''[[http://www.bencomicstrip.com/ Ben]]'', the children have no nose (only when viewed from the front).

* Any and all Franchise/{{LEGO}} [[http://www.cpb.co.uk/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/minifigs-timeline.jpg minifigures]]. There are a few exceptions, like Timmy from Toys/LEGOTimeCruisers and various characters from the Wild West line.
* Some Franchise/{{Bratz}} dolls lack noses, and their animated forms don't have them either.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Akihiko Yoshida's character portraits in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' are lacking in the nasal area.
** The animated scenes in the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]] remake reveal that the characters actually do have noses, only that they're very small and can only be seen when looking at the face at a profile. Some of the artwork for the PSP remake does include noses, and [[TheMerch figurines of the characters]] reflect this.
** This is actually a recurring feature of Yoshida's artwork. Characters in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII DS'' also do not have noses, except for the detailed FMV at the beginning of the game. His "cartoony" style typically has very limited noses which are all but invisible straight-on. You can see this in the ''Four Warriors of Light'' and some artwork for ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' ([[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:AkihikiYoshida-FFXIIallChars..jpg this picture is a good example]]).
** Averted in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy2015''; according to Creator/TetsuyaNomura it was the source of a healthy debate among the design staff. While it's considered an iconic element of Yoshida's art style, they eventually decided that it would clash with ''Dissidia''[='s=] more realistic art style and would just look weird.
* Likewise, Creator/TetsuyaNomura's characters in ''VideoGame/BraveFencerMusashi''. (An odd thing for sure, since the entire style of the game is a sharp departure from his usual one of generous Pleather.) ''BFM'' came before his Belt and Zipper days, when he was trying to find his style regarding human characters.
* SuperDeformed style drawing in ''VideoGame/LufiaTheLegendReturns'' makes the main characters do not have noses.
* Most character pixel arts in the top-view 8 bit and 16 bit role playing games lack noses. They continue to exist in ''VideoGame/RPGMaker'' programs, which use oldschool 2D graphic.
* Most of Creator/EdmundMcMillen's characters lack noses, because "noses aren't cute!"

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* In ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', the only main character with a nose is Strong Mad. This doesn't stop Strong Bad from putting sunscreen on his face as if he had one, though. One answering machine has the King of Town threatening to reveal Marzipan's "questionable voluntary surgery" in retaliation for Marzipan having let slip that the [=KoT=]'s [[EmbarrassingMiddleName middle name is "Wad"]]. If you click on the tape you can get "before" and "after" photos; the "before" shows Marzipan with a prominent nose.
* Edd Gould from ''WebAnimation/EddsWorld'' almost never drew noses on his characters. Paul ter Voorde is carrying on with the trait.
* Everyone in ''WebAnimation/NapsterBad'', which only makes the characters even more grotesque.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Just about every human in ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard'' has a mostly featureless "bubblehead" head, with noses being one of the details left off.
* About every character in ''Webcomic/AngelMoxie''.
* Every character in ''Webcomic/TheInJoke''.
* The humanoid characters from ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure''. It also gets lampshaded in [[http://danielscreations.com/ola/comics/ep0110.html this comic]] when Julie thinks about how ugly the receptionist's nose is, due to this receptionist ''having one''.
* The entire cast of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is noseless.
** This would just be a stylistic choice not worth much consideration if not for [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0339.html the police sketch artist]] who drew Nale and Thog in a [[FourthWallPortrait far more detailed style]] than the characters themselves ... which, as well as [[FacialCompositeFailure getting him fired for being a terrible artist]], prompts one of the other cops to ask, [[LampshadeHanging "What are those weird bumpy things between their eyes?"]]
--->'''Sketch Artist:''' ''[sigh]'' At least I still have my webcomic.
** In a [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/GuestStrips.html guest strip]] crossover with ''Webcomic/TheGodsOfArrKelaan'', the entire Order (besides Roy) becomes fascinated with Ronson's nose and goes on strike in an attempt to get noses of their own.
* Most characters in ''Webcomic/NotQuiteDailyComic'' only have visible noses when seen in profile. Lampshaded in [[http://www.truefork.org/Art/comic/cindex.php?332 this episode]]
* Kris Straub generally doesn't do noses in any of his projects (''Webcomic/{{Starslip}}, Webcomic/{{Chainsawsuit}}, FChords''); in ''Webcomic/CheckerboardNightmare'' human characters were depicted with noses (except when they were shown in profile), but these eventually vanished.
* ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' is awfully short on noses.
* ''Webcomic/{{Waterworks}}'' simplifies the characters to the point where they don't have noses.
* Like ''Problem Sleuth'' before it, ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is very barren in the nose department.
* Nobody in ''Webcomic/LuminaryChildren'' is drawn with a nose.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''WebAnimation/DrawWithMe'', both of the characters are lacking noses.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* All of the children in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''. Many adults introduced earlier in the show's run also lack noses, such as Jimbo, Ned, Officer Barbrady and Jesus. As the show's art style has shifted to be more realistic, new adults almost always have noses.
* Almost everybody in ''WesternAnimation/TheOblongs''. A few have nostrils.
* Basically everyone human or humanoid in ''WesternAnimation/ObanStarRacers''; the creator, Savin Yeatman-Eiffel, has gone on record as saying that he "doesn't like noses", and wanted an {{Animesque}} series with its own unique look, so none of the characters, human or otherwise, are drawn with noses.
* Most of the Autobots in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' have a ridge where we'd have a nose (although they still have "olfactory sensors" according to Prowl). ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' follows the look.
* [[MultipleHeadCase The Brothers Matzoriley]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheSuper6''.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', although it turns out most humans have their noses drawn and the ones that don't actually don't have noses.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is on the border between type two and having a lot of type one; about 2/3 of the cast are noseless, but the main character and his family besides Darwin aren't. As almost all of the noseless characters but Darwin are anthropomorphic animals, plants, and objects that don't have noses, any of them could be a type three.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''
** The show has special, simplified character designs for long-distance shots which omit noses except for Pearl's because its part of her silhouette. ''VideoGame/AttackTheLight'' and "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS1E33GarnetsUniverse Garnet's Universe]]" are both based on said models, including humanoids lacking noses.
** In-universe, "[[Recap/StevenUniverseS3E4BarnMates Barn Mates]]" has Steven draws a rather {{animesque}} picture. Peridot questions the lack of noses and fingers in it. Steven says that the lack of noses is a stylistic choice while the lack of fingers is due to him having difficulties drawing them.

!!Characters who ''literally'' don't have noses

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'': Doctor S, creator of the Gundam Heavyarms, wears a prosthetic nose very similar to the one worn by Gaston Julia (see below), presumably because he lacks a real one.
* The manga ''Manga/AliveTheFinalEvolution'' features later on a character in the military who has no nose. [[spoiler:Later still he is forced to undergo plastic surgery and as a result gains a nose by the end of the series.]]
* Krillin in ''Manga/DragonBall''. Although initially just an art-style oddity, [[LampshadeHanging it comes in handy during the first tournament arc]] when facing Bacterian, a giant who defeats opponents with his terrible body odor. And later, when he fights Jackie Chun, it doesn't prevent him from [[SeriesContinuityError snorting boogers at him.]]
** Chiaotzu doesn't have a nose either.
** Krillin's daughter, Marron, didn't have a nose as a child but did by the end of the series and in ''Anime/DragonBallGT''.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* [[http://www.batwitchs-harrypotter-world.de/startseite/hplexikon/voldemortgalerie/voldemort1.jpg Voldemort]] from the film adaptations of ''Film/HarryPotter''. The lack of nose is done to complete his snakelike appearance. This is actually a rather complicated visual effect and many people have been surprised to see that Ralph Fiennes' nose looked perfectly normal when he filmed his scenes. Early on, there were experiments with make-up and prosthetics, but it was ultimately decided that it would look more "striking" if his nose was completely taken off with digital effects. Their aim was to deliberately hit the UncannyValley.
* The Neimoidians in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequel trilogy, and the Duros (who look like TheGreys) in the cantina in ''Film/ANewHope''. According to the ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'', the two species are related.
* ''Justinien Trouvé or God's Bastard''.
* PlayedForDrama in ''Film/{{Se7en}}''. For his "Pride" murder, John Doe cuts off a beautiful model's nose and leaves her locked in a hotel room. To prove that she's guilty of the "deadly sin" of pride, he glues a cell phone to one of her hands and glues a bottle of pills to the other -- thus giving her a choice between committing suicide or calling for help and having to live with her deformity. [[spoiler:She chooses suicide]].
* In ''Film/TheSaltonSea'', Pooh-Bear, played by Creator/VincentDOnofrio, has snorted so much meth that his nose had to be removed. He wears a plastic prosthesis.
* Villainous Tim Strawn, played by Lee Marvin in ''Film/CatBallou'', is known as Silvernose due to his prosthetic replacement.
* ''Film/NothingButTrouble'': Judge Valkenheiser takes off his fake nose in his private quarters. Chris, who is secretly observing this from a wall cavity, has to restain himself from gagging.

* Erik from ''Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' as one of his main skull-like characteristics.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Rorge has had his nose cut off as punishment for some unrevealed crime. Judging from his personality, he deserved it. [[spoiler:Tyrion Lannister]] suffers a greivous warwound that removes half of his nose. He wasn't pretty to begin with, either.
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Lord Voldemort, who's described as looking like a snake (bald, noseless, slit pupils) although he wasn't ''always'' this way. He became gradually hideously disfigured as a side effect of [[spoiler:making [[SoulJar Horcruxes]] and ended up looking like a snake after managing to create a new body.]] Before this, he was [[IWasQuiteALooker pretty good-looking]].
* There is a short story by Creator/NikolaiGogol called "The Nose", about a man who ends up noseless and finds out that his nose has taken a life of its own and ran away, wearing a nice uniform.
* In Tad Williams' ''Literature/{{Shadowmarch}}'' and ''Shadowplay'', Gyir the Storm Lantern is one of a group known as the Encauled. This type of faerie have no nose or mouth, but they can detect and influence others around them telepathically.
* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'': Fan nickname for Myrddraal, who ''should'' have a nose, but are frequently descibed as having a smooth space where their eyes should be. [[FridgeLogic Since most people's noses would make a big lump there...]]
* Sister Bessie in ''Literature/TobaccoRoad'' was born without a nose.
* The demoness Surpanakha from the ''Literature/{{Ramayana}}'' gets denosed by Laxman when she tries to woo his brother Rama. War ensues.
* Nerezza in ''[[Literature/PeterAndTheStarcatchers Peter and the Shadow Thieves]]'' lost his nose in a battle and wears a fake one over the hole. It has no nostrils, so he has to remove it in order to smell, but he also has an enhanced sense of smell as a result.
* The adulterous wife of the title character in ''Literature/{{Bisclavret}}'' has her nose bitten off by her werewolf husband; she and her lover go on to have daughters [[LamarckWasRight who are born without noses]]. (The ''lai'' probably alludes to medieval law codes that prescribed nose mutilation as a punishment for adulterous wives and/or prostitutes.)

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In a host segment in the ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' showing of ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'', Joel and the bots discuss what physical abnormalities would make for a scarier "monster" than Torgo and his big knees. Joel suggests no nose -- not even nostrils, just flat skin from eyes to mouth. Brrrr.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'''s The Silence, although it appears they might have nostrils, it looks like they have no definable nose.
* The Markab in ''Series/BabylonFive'' have only slits for nostrils on an otherwise flat face.
* ''Series/{{Rome}}'' had a character with a metal nose, implying that his had been cut off in punishment.
* The demon bikers in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Bargaining". On the commentary track, the writers speculate that their lack of noses is actually the reason they're so angry at the world.
-->I hold this flower up to my nose and ''nothing happens!''

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Pegnose Pete from ''VideoGame/EscapeFromMonkeyIsland'' is rumored to have had his nose bitten off by a duck when he was younger. He wears a wooden prosthesis in its stead.
* Some of the [[SuperpoweredMooks Splicers]] in ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' and ''[[VideoGame/BioShock2 2]]'' have faces so deformed that they have a flab of flesh cover the part of their face where their nose would normally be.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Webcomic/{{Selkie}} Smith has slitlike nostrils and no nose to speak of.
* ''Roleplay/{{Crystal Rave}}'': The Monochrome race doesn't seem to have either noses or ears. This first became majorly evident in Mineral Caper, where we meet other Monochromes for the first time.
* Fnar from ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}'' had his nose torn off his face when he arrived in Hell. Why? [[FunWithAcronyms For no apparent reason]].

* WebOriginal/JeffTheKiller. Of course, there's [[SelfHarm a good reason for this.]]
* The creeper known as "the grinning man" is often described as having no nose.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** In episode "Spanish Fry", Fry gets his nose stolen by an alien black market, which are propelled by the myth that "Human Horn" is a natural aphrodisiac for them.
** Bender, on the other hand, is typically noseless, since robots don't need noses. He once said he ''had'' a nose, he just doesn't wear the thing.
** Also, Zoidberg. EspeciallyZoidberg.
* Cod Commando from ''WesternAnimation/EvilConCarne'' is a fish who doesn't have a nose which serves as a plot device for his introduction in [[Recap/EvilConCarneS0E4TheSmellOfVengeance The Smell of Vengeance]].
* Roger from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' does not have a nose, but can smell. This however rarely ever came up (especially since he tends to go outside with disguises, yet no-one notices. Granted, there ARE other things that could tip off any sane person), and was promptly lampshaded in one episode where a kid called him a "noseless freak" (which, of course, prompted another fashion montage, except this time with nose prosthetic). Apparently with a proper nose, Roger looks exactly like Kevin Bacon.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'':
** Although Mandy is initially the first type, her lack of a nose eventually gets [[StylisticSelfParody pointed out]] so often that's it's functionally like she really doesn't have one.
** Billy once had his nose taken away by a "[[{{Whatevermancy}} nasalmancer]]" who himself misplaced his nose after removing it.
* Similarly, ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'' were able to freely remove and apply not only their, but also each other's noses in "Pick a Nose". Chum Chum separated his nose from his face again in "Fanboy Stinks", when he couldn't stand Fanboy's stench.
* Skipper Shelton from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', has a nosepatch covering the end result of an angry clam attack.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'' have the aliens Gidney and Cloyd. Lampshaded in "Jet Fuel Formula": Cloyd says he can't smell the stink that Rocky and Bullwinkle are smelling, and Gidney says, "Cloyd, we don't have noses!"
* The Reach in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' are RubberForeheadAliens without noses.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Sapphires, Aquamarines, and Rutiles normally lack noses.
** Jasper has her gemstone in place of a nose. Another Jasper with a different gemstone location does have a nose.
* None of the alien creatures in ''WesternAnimation/TinyPlanets'' have visible noses.
* Olaf the emperor penguin from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}''. In one episode, Stumpy and Quack Quack try to attack him with smelly gas, which doesn't work since he doesn't have a nose.

[[folder:Real Life]]

* Congenital arrhinia, a very rare disorder (only 37 cases diagnosed around the world) where babies are born with no nose. Example: [[http://noticias.uol.com.br/saude/album/2015/03/31/bebe-com-condicao-rara-nasce-sem-nariz.htm Eli Thompson]], born March 4, 2015, in Mobile, AL.
* Mathematician Gaston Julia, the one with the fractals. He had to wear a piece of leather covering the place where his nose had been for the rest of his life. There are photos. [[SchmuckBait Happy googling]].
* The astronomer Tycho Brahe lost his nose in a duel and replaced it with a series of prosthetic noses, most famously a golden one. Some accounts claim that his exceptionally accurate measurements were due to his ability to remove his false noses at will, so as to perfectly align his eye with his sextant.
* A ''Time'' magazine cover was a photo of an Afghani girl who had her nose cut off during the Taliban regime. She had reported that she was being abused but the Taliban ordered the punishment because telling others about it was seen as disobedient to those people and defied Taliban law.
* ''Almost'' happened to Creator/RoaldDahl when he was young, where he almost lost his nose in a car accident. He then almost lost it again when he was a pilot in the Second World War and was forced to make a crash landing in a desert.
* Creator/PattonOswalt tells about a medical show (possibly on Discovery Health) he saw about a guy whose nose froze off while climbing a mountain. He ''grew a new nose on his forehead''. It's a pretty standard plastic surgery technique, though in reality it doesn't involve growing a new nose. It really involves stretching the skin on the forehead to make a flap of "extra" skin, which can be used to make a sort of nose replacement, with nerves and blood vessels included.
* Towards the end of shooting ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'', Creator/MarkHamill was in a car accident which virtually destroyed his nose. Fortunately, plastic surgeons were able to restore it.
* Snub-nosed monkeys have nostrils, but no nose. In the rain, they have to keep sneezing to keep the rain water out of their sinuses. Ironically, one of their closest relatives is the [[GagNose proboscis monkey]].
* When Saint Elizabeth of Hungary was widowed, her cousin (a German bishop) tried to trap her in an ArrangedMarriage. She threatened to invoke this trope and cut off her own nose so no one would want to marry her, and the cousin left her alone.

* War is hell, and what doesn't kill you does ''not'' make you stronger. Enter doctor Jacques Joseph, the pioneer of rhinoplasty, who got famous helping WWI soldiers with disfigured faces and earned his nickname "Nosejoseph". [[SchmuckBait Go on, google him and a few of his patients.]]
* Removal or slitting of the nose was a common way to deal with political opponents in the UsefulNotes/ByzantineEmpire, especially rival claimants to the throne as the emperor's face had to be unblemished. This system worked until Justinian II, who after having his nose removed had a smith craft him a new one made of gold; gold being sufficiently 'royal' for him to ascend to the throne (and chop off the heads of his mutilators). Following Justinian II, castration or blinding became commonplace instead as they couldn't be replaced with prosthetics.
* Cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) appear to be this, since their noses are their blowholes.
