* The already [[AxCrazy Batshit Crazy]] Dilandau gets one from Van in one of the earlier episodes of ''Manga/{{Escaflowne}}''. It only serves to make him [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge even more crazy and dangerous]].

To qualify for this trope, the scar needs to be on the face and used to make a character look more militarized and BadAss. The scar need not necessarily be from a sword or an actual duel, although writers should get extra credit if they know the origin of the trope.

* 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."
