A character's entire body, is covered in hundreds of scars. This trope is used to show that the character is a badass, a veteran or a BrokenBird who lived though a lot of fights or suffered a great deal of pain and [[ColdBloodedTorture torture]]. Often times these scars will be [[PhysicalScarsPsychologicalScars linked to mental scars]] related to how they gained them.
