The 8 Most Famous Body Parts In Fiction

These figures in literature have one thing in common: an extraordinary body part has made them who they are and why we like (or loathe) them. Feast your eyes upon the most notable body parts in fiction.

Captain Hook

The villain of J.M. Barrie's classic play about the famous flying perma-boy Peter Pan is renowned for his cruelty—and one very fancy prosthesis.

Cyrano de Bergerac

The real Cyrano de Bergerac had a prominent schnoz, but nothing like the giant honker that plagues his fictional counterpart in the play based on his life.

Harry Potter

A scar in the shape of a lightning bolt is Harry's souvenir from his first encounter with Lord Voldemort at the tender age of one.

Rapunzel

Never has a character been more famous for her long, lovely locks…and never could more tragedy have been prevented by a simple pixie cut.

Lisbeth Salander

The heroine of Stieg Larsson's trilogy about a girl with a dragon tattoo has—surprise!—a great big tattoo of a dragon adorning her shapely back.

Quasimodo

His hunched back and warty face made the Notre Dame bell-ringer an outcast among the people of Paris, and a most tragic hero amongst his literary brethren.

Sissy Hankshaw

Blessed with giant mutant thumbs, the heroine of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues uses her big ol' digits to become a prolific hitchhiker.

Count Tyrone Rugen

The big baddie of The Princess Bride has a memorable, peculiar number of fingers on his left hand—allowing Inigo Montoya to know him instantly and use the line he's been rehearsing just for the occasion.
