akuma-mimi 悪魔耳

In Japanese, akuma-mimi 悪魔耳, "demon ears," or "devil ears," are the ears of fantasy characters that are pointed and curved upwards.

They're practically the same thing as "elf ears," erufu-mimi エルフ耳, except that elf ears tend to protrude outwards and can become extremely long, while demon ears protrude upwards and look short by comparison.
