* The female version of Prussia in ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' has just such a scar. And since she's [[BloodKnight Prussia]], of course she's a {{badass}}. And, you know, German.

* [[OttoVonBismarck Otto von Bismarck]] You won't see it on the picture, he had one (small) scar on his left cheek (he was a very good duelist, in his school days).

* In the {{Literature/Flashman}} novel ''Royal Flash'', which is a pastiche of ''ThePrisonerOfZenda'', Flashman has to impersonate a German prince, and since the prince had one of those dueling scars, Flashman has to be given a scar in the same place. Unfortunately the [[KickTheDog villains insisted on giving them to Flashy the traditional way]], instead of just cutting him more precisely with a straight razor. Flashman later gets busted because [[SpotTheImposter the scars don't quite match the man he's impersonating]].

** The two German recruits from the first day at boot camp in ''Literature/StarshipTroopers'' have them. But it's blink and you'd miss it, Johnnie doesn't see the scars, but Zim's dialog indicates they have them.
* ''[[Literature/TheShipWho The City Who Fought]]'' by AnneMcCaffrey and SMStirling. The main character is a WetWareCPU whose onscreen avatar has a dueling scar because he thinks it's cool. Only one other character recognises it.
* ''StarTrekNewFrontier'': Commander, later Captain Mueller. Bonus points for actually being shown swordfighting recreationally in the holodeck.

* Vocal jazz group The Manhattan Transfer is known for their cover of the song "The Boy From New York City" (originally by 60's doo-wop group The Ad-Libs). The only lyrical change from the original version swaps out the line "You ought to come and see / His pretty bar / And his brand-new car," for "You ought to come and see / '''His dueling scar''' / And his brand-new car."

* In ''RurouniKenshin'', Kenshin got half of his iconic scar in a "duel" to the death (it was really more of a CurbStompBattle, but the man who gave him the scar had such a will to live that he managed to leave his mark).

* In the Anime/{{Lejiverse}}, both Anime/CaptainHarlock and his long-time ally Emeraldas have left-cheek scars that are supposed to suggest this, though they are apparently genetic (Matsumoto's heroes are so badass, they come out of the womb with dueling scars). The origins of Harlock's scar are never discussed, but Emeraldas subverts or plays this trope straight, depending on the particular installment: in ''Arcadia of My Youth'', she is shot in the face by a member of the alien occupation force, but in [[Anime/QueenEmeraldas her own series]], she had received it while dueling Goddess Siren.
