* In VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresCastleSiege, many of the heroes have imponent beards, especially Alexander Nevsky. Averted with Henry V and Bellisarius, who only have short stubble, and the heroes who have {{Badass Mustache}}s. Ladder invaders have beards as well.

In RealLife, beards fell out of style (in most places) after the invention of the safety razor. Before that, shaving had to be done with a straight razor, and the risk of cutting yourself was a much more dangerous concern. This is why most historical bearded people were around before the 20th Century. Having a long beard in battle isn't always a good thing, as an enemy can grab on it and pull the guy in reach of a sword. However, beards have been making a comeback, and the more common they have become, the more bearded badasses that have sprung up on sheer statistical possibility alone.

* Fairly common in [[Series/GameOfThrones Westeros]]. Of the Starks, Ned has one from the beginning, while Robb and Jon Snow grow one later in the show. Tywin Lannister also sports one, as does Ser Davos Seaworth.

Some {{badass}}es are not satisfied with ''just'' a BadassMustache or PermaStubble to show off their awesomeness. No, they choose to take it ''further''. As opposed to facial hair growing above their upper lip, they won't be content until they have a full blown beard to show off. Many times, it works for them where a simple mustache would just look [[{{Narm}} foolish]] or out of place. And when it does work, the gentleman in question is a bona fide tough guy, a man's man, a veritable buffet of manliness.

* Guan Yu, above, from ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'' is infamous for his impressively long and full beard and he's one of the top {{badass}}es of the story. So impressive, the DesignatedVillain Cao Cao gives him a beard-bag to protect its luxuriousness. A mere display of his beard makes {{Mooks}} go weak at their knees and [[HeelFaceTurn beg to join him]].

* Similar to Guan Yu, El Cid Compeador is described in ''The Poem of the Cid'' as having a magnificent beard, as befitting an archetypal {{Badass}}.

* Steve?, the masculine ([[AmbiguousGender sort of]]) version of the player in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', is a {{badass}} who, if the player is skilled enough, can become very powerful, and once had a Badass Beard. It was eventually removed due to players mistaking it for a smile.

* In ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'', resident {{Badass}} / {{Determinator}} Dex Garrett grew a beard. Sadly, it's long gone by the time he [[spoiler: nearly gets killed by a monster and is presumed he would die from his injuries.]]
* The werewolf [[http://lj-phillips.deviantart.com/art/Vinegar-Tom-340715645 Vinnie]] from ''Webcomic/{{Skins}}''. His beard and CarpetOfVirility enforce his role as the team's {{Badass}}.

* Quinn from WebVideo/DemoReel has a great bush of hair on his face, making him even more manly than the clean-shaven (but still {{badass}}) Carl.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': In Volume 4, the ship's captain has a full and shaggy white beard and side-burns, and full moustaches. It initially helps make him seem grandfatherly when he first tries to bring the anti-social Blake out of her shell, but once the sea dragon attacks, it helps give him a no-nonsense air, portraying him as a grizzled veteran when compared to his young crew and the two young Huntsmen that are travelling on the ship. Although even he has never heard of a Grimm this big, he calmly issues instructions and swiftly devises a plan to defeat it. He not only easily splits his attention between the movements of the Grimm, the effectiveness of the ship's side-guns, the ship's main cannon and his crew's activities, but he also takes command of Blake and Sun. It's his orders they follow to slow down the Grimm enough for his ship to become effective. Turning his ship into a battering ram, he pins the dragon to a sea stack and blows the creature's head off with the main cannon. It saves Blake and Sun's lives in the process.

* The MarvelCinematicUniverse adaptation of Film/DoctorStrange provides a very specific origin for his comic-book facial hair: When we first meet him as a neurosurgeon, Strange is clean-shaven, but after the car accident that wrecks his hands, he can't even shave without seriously risking hurting himself, leading him to let a beard grow on its own until, as he learns new confidence well into his days at Kamar-Taj, he's shown sculpting his iconic beard with an electric razor. (The ProductPlacement might not be obvious at first, but apparently, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRHuuLH1Utw it's a Norelco]].)
