Tyrion Lannister in ''{{Series/Game of Thrones}}'', Lannister, after [[spoiler:he kills his father and escapes from Westeros.]]]]
** Doran Martell is introduced sporting one as part of his general dishevelment, which is understandable since he has just learned that he's outlived all his siblings even though he is by far the eldest.
** Loras has one in "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken", likely since his captors didn't let him shave.

Subtrope or perhaps [[SisterTrope Brother Trope]] to GoodHairEvilHair: just as a goatee indicates evil, stubble or an unkempt beard indicates squalor. Subtrope of ExpositoryHairstyleChange. See also {{Mangst}}. Contrast PermaStubble, which is the mark of a {{Badass}}, and {{Wangst}}, which is telling, while this trope is showing. Also contrast PermaShave, where no facial hair grows. If the sorrow drives them to a FaceHeelTurn, it may double as a BeardOfEvil. A beard caused by stress rather than distress is a case of SeriouslyScruffy.

* Film/{{Hancock}}'s PermaStubble is eventually revealed to also be a beard of sorrow. Having lost his memories and sense of belonging, he's drifted into a self-perpetuating slump. His rise out of this drunken depression is marked by his removing the beard. With his fingers.

* Allan in ''Monkey Shines'' after his accident: Part of the reason he grew a beard in the first place is that said accident rendered him a quadriplegic and he ''couldn't'' shave on his own. However, he only gets his caretaker to shave it once he starts to take a more positive outlook on his life.
