*** Inverted with the younger Charles Xavier; he has a beard and somewhat longer hair, but they signify how much he has let himself go.

Some {{badass}}es are not satisfied with ''just'' a BadassMoustache 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 moustache 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.

In short, it's what happens when the BadassMoustache gets cranked UpToEleven.

** Ganondorf develops one from ''Wind Waker'' onwards; prior that, he was clean-shaven. His ''Twilight Princess'' beard used to provide the page image. And if sideburns count, even pre-beard Ganondorf had epic chops, along with eyebrows that connect to his hairline. Truly fitting fiendish facial hair.
