Recent studies have revealed that riddled fractal sets, sets whose conventionally defined fractal dimensions are integers, occur commonly in chaotic dynamical systems. We demonstrate that these exotic fractal sets exhibit a sign-singular scaling behavior with nontrivial scaling exponents. The exponents may then be used to characterize the sets. Numerical examples using both a low-dimensional map and a coupled map lattice are given.
