batman's costume doesn't have a nose. zubat doesn't have a nose. no clipart-scale depictions of bats have faces at all. nobody seems to think this is a glaring omission in their design.
look, bats have faces. bats have a LOT of face. they are the very OPPOSITE of featureless. if you are going to design a bat, then it doesn't really look like a bat unless it has a ton of face. possibly more face than is entirely attractive. does it really have to have that nose. really.
bats are not elegant winged orbs. they are rats with ludicrous faces that crawled into the darkness? i like elegant winged orbs, but are they really batlike?
