* ''{{Series/Sharpe}}'': Captain Frederickson's head is pretty much covered in scars. He has burn scars all over his head that cost him most of his hair, and took a musket ball in the face which shattered his jaw, knocked out most of his teeth, tore one of his eyes out of its socket on the way out and left him with a GlasgowGrin. He deliberately cultivates his fearsome appearance to instill fear in his enemies, removes his false teeth and glass eye before going into combat (much to the disgust of people around him) and collects teeth from dead Frenchmen to make himself a set of dentures.

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'', Murderface goes to a back-alley plastic surgeon to have his face rebuilt. When the operation is complete, he's ordered to wear a metal helmet until his face fully heals, but when he takes the helmet off at a ceremony it turns out that his face got an infection that made him even more disfigured than before.

Interestingly, even the most gruesome examples of this trope will often, like the page picture, [[EyesAreUnbreakable leave the eyes completely intact]]. Perhaps this is to emphasize the facial disfigurement by contrast, or merely a sign that EyeScream is a whole different level of horror. Or perhaps its so that the victim [[CruelMercy can see]] himself in a mirror.

* Any suicides or homicides from being shot in the face or head. In severe cases, the face and head can be turned into hamburger meat or pushed into the skull. If extremely lucky, the damage can be repaired and the person can survive, but probably with at least ''some'' disfigurement. For example, in UsefulNotes/{{Finland}} during the [[UsefulNotes/FinnsWithFearsomeForests Winter War]], UsefulNotes/SimoHayha (nicknamed "the White Death," and probably the deadliest sniper of all time) took a ''14.5mm explosive anti-tank round to the face''. The bullet crushed his jaw and blew off his left cheek, leaving his face [[https://frontierpartisans.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/2amHhMq.jpg permanently]] [[https://www.simohayha.com/assets/simohayha/simo-hayha-medals.jpg lopsided]], but he ''survived''. And the best part? Immediately after being shot, Häyhä proceeded to kill the [[UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets Red Army soldier]] who shot him.

* ''Film/TheMonsterMaker'': Lawrence's face becomes hideously distorted by the acromegaly Dr Markoff infects him with. Acromegaly causes distortion of the extremities (hands, feet and face), and the version created by Markoff causes to Lawrence to advance in a week to a state that would normally take two years of the disease's progression. Glimpsing her father's face in a darkened room causes Patricia to scream and faint.

** In "The Mural of the Story", Hayley ends up hated by the town after Stan blames her for his botched attempt to restore a mural, so Stan attempts to reconstruct her face in her sleep, with horrific results. Hayley later has a real plastic surgeon give her a new face as part of a plan to make Stan suffer.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'': There's a security check point at Dr. Venture's yard sale (as it's a magnet for arch-villains) where Baron Underbheit is made to remove his metal lower jaw, which leaves his tongue hanging limp out his exposed throat hole and horrifies people around him.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'': Played for laughs in "Flipmode". At the end of the episode, Space Ghost learns the "Space Ghost: A Tribute to Freedom" segment was cut for time, and a RevealShot shows that all the skin has been removed from Space Ghost's face as he complains "Then what was the point of sanding my face off?"
