* Averted in the ''Literature/EarthseaTrilogy'' book ''Tehanu'', Therru (good guy) was horribly burned when her natural parents threw her into a fire. This didn't really carry over to the Creator/StudioGhibli film ''Anime/TalesFromEarthsea'' where it [[ProgressivelyPrettier became a light pink patch on her face]]; and she [[RaceLift became white]].
** Also from Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin, in ''A Wizard of Earthsea'', Ged, in a calamitous attempt to summon a long-dead ghost, summons some never-exactly specified evil creature whose first business is to attack Ged and maul one entire side of his face. These scars never leave his face, and so he is reminded every day of his arrogance and the balance that he disrupted.

* Semi-averted in Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''The Curse of Literature/{{Chalion}}'': good guy Cazaril has both hands permanently damaged by his time as a galley slave, as well as scarring all over his back (hidden by his shirt) from a near-fatal flogging at the tail end of same. However, other characters perceive these as evil scars, since similar floggings are meted out to rapists and paedophiles. This causes him a bit of bother when he has to use a public bathhouse.
** Also averted in the Literature/VorkosiganSaga. Aral Vorkosigan's L-shaped dueling scar on his cheek adds to his rather thuggish appearance, while his son Miles not only bears an assortment of surgical scars from the piecemeal (emphasis on ''piece''es) replacement of his brittle bones with synthetics but retains one from a needle grenade to the chest that nearly cut him in half. His future wife finds these scars quite a turn on.

* Subverted in ''Literature/TheFirstLaw'' in which more or less ''every'' major character has at least one ugly scar, whether they're good or bad. Logen in particular is more or less one big walking scar and is described as horrendously ugly by many other characters [[spoiler:though his status as a good guy is ''very'' questionable.]]
