* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Jon has some photogenic talon scars around his eyes, befitting his status as a sympathetic action hero.
** The slash Tyrion receives across his face is downplayed from the source material both for practical reasons and to keep him looking sympathetic.
** The Thenns are characterized by their bald heads and scary, ornamental scars that make them look ObviouslyEvil, which they are.

* Reiji Takayama from ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' has a {{Badass}} scar. While he's working for a company not very moralistic at best, it serves as a hint that he's not just an armchair arms-trader, but was in some action personally; later he turns out to be a [[BlackAndGrayMorality good guy as much as practical]] -- when the responsibility (and the fact he fell head over heels for the heroine) comes to the fore, he kicks a fair share of bottom for a BadassNormal.

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', from what we've seen so far, tends to use massive scarring to indicate a BadAss. Both [[{{Determinator}} Jace Malcolm]], the Republic trooper who founded [[TheSquad Havoc Squad]], and [[NobleDemon Darth Malgus]] have major facial scarring... mostly from the times they've encountered each other. ''Especially'' the time Malcolm detonated a grenade in ''melee combat''.

* ''TheWitcher'' both plays this straight and subverts it. On the one hand, the hero Geralt has the stylish rugged variety of scars on his face, notably a large scar which crosses over (but does not damage) his left eye. His body, however, is covered with a horrific collection of claw-marks, stab wound scars and what looks like what's left of a torn off nipple. Fellow Witchers also have scars, and while most are also of the rugged variety, [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20080923012432/witcher/images/8/86/People_Eskel_full.png Eskel]] has a truly horrific scar completely covering half of his face, though he is a good guy (well, as [[GreyAndGrayMorality close to good as it gets]] in this world, anyway). In the sequel, Letho and Iorveth have extensive scars. Letho has scars crisscrossing his whole head, it almost looks as though someone tried to scalp him but didn't get the job done. Iorveth, has a very large scar covering half of his face, which apparently destroyed one eye. He covers the scar with a [[NiceHat special hat]] that covers part of his face.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Having fought in a war with incompetent leaders, it should come as no surprise that Kaladin's got a few scars on him (as noted by a lighteyes considering buying him). He gains more in slavery, including a few [[SlaveBrand brands on his forehead]]. When he joins Bridge Four, he gets even more.

* In ''Anime/DragonDrive'' the good-but-disreputable character Rockaku has an eye blinded by a scar (and his dragon has a matching scar). This scar represents the character's grief, anger, and thirst for vengeance for his best friend's death, and it is these emotions that make the character disreputable (getting drunk, lying to friends, diving into battle without strategy).

** AntiVillain-turned-AntiHero Hikaru Himuro is CoveredWithScars after spending the ten-year TimeSkip in Rikyu. His arms appear to have more scarring than intact skin, and two long scars run parallel across his face. They're a result of intense training and battles, and are more a sign of his {{Determinator}} nature and being a total badass than anything negative.

* Balalaika, ''Manga/BlackLagoon'''s resident MagnificentBastard, has a huge scar down the right side of her face (and body) from [[{{badass}} having survived a point-blank frag grenade in the Afghanistan war]]. The scar has given her the derisive nickname "Fry-face" amongst the Roanapur gangster community, which is only spoken in her presence by people with a death wish. Although a villain by anyone's standard, she never actively antagonizes the {{villain protagonist}}s and indeed hires them on several occasions.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'''s famous 'lightning bolt' shaped {{achey scar|s}}. It's easily covered up by his fringe. A magical quill in the fifth book gives Harry another scar, this one on the back of his hand, the words "I must not tell lies" in his own handwriting, from writing those words, over and over again, in his own blood during detention.

* "Fighting Jack" Aubrey, from the AubreyMaturin books, has a generous assortment of scars which he acquires in large part, during the events of the series. His subordinate Tom Pullings has severe facial scarring, and a number of minor characters have assorted deformities including an amputated nose (which the Doctor is repeatedly called upon to testify was amputated due to frostbite, rather than syphilis). The Doctor acquires serious damage to his hands from Fench torture (it is implied his fingernails were torn out) but it got better later on, although only in a relative sense. This is largely omitted in the film adaptation, although Pullings has minor scarring and Midshipman Blakeney has an amputation of one arm, in his role as a composite of several minor characters.
