  • Why? Because Tolkien made them that way. And, since every successful fantasy universe created since the 1950s follows Tolkien's guidelines, elves have pointed ears and will always have pointed ears.

  • The depiction of elves with long ears comes from artists confounding them with Greek fauns or satyrs to make them look more different from humans. In the Celtic myths from which they come they don't say anything about pointed ears. They look like anybody else just spookier.
