* Fairly common in [[Series/GameOfThrones Westeros]]. Of the Starks, Ned has a full (but not too thick) one from the beginning and is very much a badass, while Robb and Jon Snow grow one later in the show, Jon's one being of varying intensity. Benjen has one which is thinner than his brother's, but present all the same and as badass. Tywin Lannister also sports one, as does Ser Davos Seaworth, who has a thick but trimmed short beard. Syrio Forel has a goatee. Locke's pointy beard goes with his effective combat skills and stealth abilities. Pretty much every adult male character has one at one point or another.

has one at one point or another.the most epic beard in the series thus far... with the possible exception of Tormund Giantsbane. It looks almost like an old photo of grim and bearded American frontiersmen. Doubles as BeardOfSorrow after the death of his sons.

** The 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 scene is even used in a real-world commercial for the razor in question. That, and Creator/BenedictCumberbatch doing a ShirtlessScene.)

* Naturally, all of the dwarves in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' except Dopey had beards. (What? Don't think they were badass? Watch the climax of the movie, and ''then'' try to deny it.)
* Hiccup's father Stoick from ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' sports one. This is probably intentional, given that he's voiced by Creator/GerardButler in a similar manner to his version of [[Film/ThreeHundred King Leonidas of SPAR-TA]].

In "Beard to Be Feared", Dexter comes to the conclusion that Hank's beard is what makes him "rugged", and in an attempt to become tougher, uses an invention to give himself a fairly impressive beard. After Hank helps Dexter defeat a band of villains who use their own bad-ass facial hair as [[ImprobableWeaponUser weapons]], Dexter learns [[SpoofAesop "It doesn't matter if you have the beard on the outside, as long as you have the beard on the inside."]]
** In ''Ego Trip'', Dexter takes a few [[TookALevelInBadass Levels in Badass]] when growing up, and gets a Badass Beard in the process. He also goes {{bald|OfAwesome}}. Elderly Dexter is beardless so he presumably shaved it off when his [[OneManArmy one-man]] LaResistance days were over.
