** Although rarely seen. Vegeta's body is covered with scars. We get a good look at them during the Frieza saga while he is changing into his uniform, with his most recent scar up to that point being Yajirobe's sword slash to his back.

However, in [[TheFilmOfTheBook the movies based on the books]], this scar had mysteriously vanished. Also, one of the Russians, whose timely intervention against 'Le Chiffre' in the first Bond novel ''Literature/CasinoRoyale'' saved him from that villain, left him alive but marked him with the Cyrillic letter Ш (the first letter of the word Шпион, meaning 'spy') carved on the back of his right hand, which ended up leaving a scar that the best efforts of plastic surgeons in the employ of MI-6 could not completely eradicate.

* In ''Film/AlienVsPredator'', [[spoiler:the last remaining scientist]] [[ActionGirl Alexa]] accepts a pair of calligraphy-clean "good scars" on her cheek as an acknowledgment of her [[TookALevelInBadass level up]] during the course of the movie. Of course, this probably saves her life in the end, because the [[spoiler:other Predators [[TrustPassword recognize the mark]] and understand she's one of the good guys.]]

** In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker sports a nasty GlasgowGrin, which he accentuates with red lipstick. He even offers to explain to his victims how he got his scars, though [[MultipleChoicePast his story is different every time]]. And then there's [[spoiler:Two-Face]]...eurgh.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Kakei has a fashionable scar on his jaw, which Okatsu tries to recreate on the other side while assaulting him. Okatsu has scars, too, but they aren't obvious until she gets comfortable.

** From the series, WarriorMonk Kilik has a neat checkmark scar below his left eye, and Mitsurugi has a bullet wound scar on his left shoulder. The latter's scar is a ContinuityNod to his ending in the first game ''Soul Edge,'' where he challenges a gunman to a duel; you can fail or succeed against him in the game, but the fact that the scar exists later on notes that he canonically got shot during the duel.

Siegfried starts the series with a pretty boy's face but come his return in the original ''Calibur'', he sports a long vertical scar over his left eye, speculated to have been gained during his battle with Souledge/Inferno at the end of ''Soul Blade''.

** Master Chief has some armor damage on the right side of his chest in Halo 3 as well from jumping out of the Keyship with a heavy metal plate as his only parachute. As Master Chief has to date not been shown in any of the games without his armor (he has been described without the armor in the books), this would count as scarring.
** Although, bizarrely, whatever Cortana used to upgrade him while he was in cryo completely neglected said massive scar. (Maybe she got sentimental, and decided to keep it?)

* 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.
