Added DiffLines:
* Colonel Colm Corbec of Literature/GauntsGhosts sports a classic example; while he's not a barbarian ''per se'', the Ghosts are often portrayed as much more barbaric than the other Guardsmen they fight alongside, like the [[BlueBlood Volpone Bluebloods]].

Added DiffLines:
* The buddhist monk Bodidharma is often shown in Chinese art with a thick bushy beard, as he was either Indian or Iranian, both peoples who can grow quite magnificent beards. And not being a native Chinese, he was considered a barbarian by default. He became the founder of Zen Buddhism and according to tradition also the man who introduced the Shaolin monks to kung fu.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Northmen are often described as big, bearded men in furs. Living in the [[GrimUpNorth grim north]], they're more barbarian-like than the Southerners.

* Aversion: When most people hear barbarian, they probably think of Franchise/{{Conan|TheBarbarian}}, who isn't bearded. The Aesir, Vanir and other barbarians that he occasionally fought, on the other hand, did have full beards. ** ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} Cohen]]'' the Barbarian, on the other hand, has a beard so long he's been said to not actually need his loincloth to remain decent. Being mostly a parody of BarbarianHero types, it's to be expected.

* Aversion: AlexanderTheGreat had his men shave regularly, so as to avoid giving the enemy an advantage (pull on your opponent's beard, his head's going to go where you want it to go). * Vikings -[[HollywoodHistory stereotypically.]] Actual Vikings tended to go for [[http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/hairstyl.shtml whatever type of beard was comfortable for them. So you could find as many Vikings averting this trope as you could playing it straight.]] This was both for the same practicality concerns Alexander the Great had and because the Norse people were very hygienic for the Middle Ages -- it was normal to wash and comb one's hair daily. Being beardless, however, was considered unmanly, and "thin-bearded" was a fighting word.

* One of the reasons that the BadassBeard is so popular in Music/HeavyMetal subculture. Particularly relevant to performers and fans of viking and folk metal, most famously Amon Amarth front man [[http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c53/Schatten000/Amon_Amarth___Wacken_2006_by_HellPi.jpg Johan Hegg]].
