** To a degree in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and especially in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', facial scars are an option for your PlayerCharacter during creation. These range from small, somewhat clean blade cuts to borderline ''mutilations''. Whether these are good or evil is up to how you play.
** Series' recurring character Jiub has a gruesome scar over his eye that looks very much like an "evil" scar. Played straight initially, as he was a [[FantasticDrug skooma addict]] and freelance assassin before ending up in prison. After his release, he sought to [[TheAtoner atone for his "sordid" life]], and became [[LegendaryInTheSequel legendary hero]] by eradicating the [[TakeThatScrappy much reviled]] [[GoddamnBats Cliff Racers]] from Vvardenfell, subverting it.

If the scarred person has a LoveInterest (and the work is sufficiently idealistic) expect said LoveInterest to talk at least once about how they don't care about their loved one's scars. Such moments may be [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] or [[{{Narm}} laughably cliche]], depending on the individual writer's skill.

To compliment his AntiHero character, the injury is disfiguring and unpleasant to see (bad), but it's hidden by his clothes (good). He had the choice to lose the leg and get a [[ArtificialLimbs prosthetic]], a "bad" scar, but refused. Ultimately, the disfiguring surgery was chosen against his will, causing him [[ScarsAreForever lifelong]] [[AcheyScars pain and suffering]], a heroic trait, but he uses it as an excuse to be an [[DoctorJerk amoral misfit]], like a villain.

* Prince Charming in ''Series/OnceUponATime'' has one on his chin when he first meets his future wife Snow in an encounter. [[spoiler: Jefferson]] has a long gruesome scar around his neck where he was decapitated during his time in Wonderland. He hides it with a scarf in Storybrooke.

Black Fang's Legault has a double scar across his left eye, and Brendan Reed has dozens of them on his face alone.

* In ''Videogame/AloneInTheDark2008'', Edward Carnby has a rather large, puckered scar over his left eye. It's more prominent than most "good guy" scars, but still reasonable enough to fall into the category. [[spoiler:At the end of the game, when he becomes Lucifer, his scar turns into a super-evil all-out rake-burn on the left side of his face]]. Significant, evil, "I cut my face with glass" scars are also a sign that someone has been possessed by Lucifer in the game.
* While the original game's portraits were pretty smooth-skinned, many of the [=NPCs=] in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II'' sport scars, including returning ones. In particular, Keldorn and Imoen sport the "over the eye" scar that should be all but impossible without putting the eye out. These can be said to be symbolic--Keldorn, the grizzled veteran; and Imoen, [[ThePollyanna innocent youth]] having learned the world isn't as nice as she'd like.

* Sergei Dragunov from ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' has several scars, his most notable being the one that runs through his lips and down his chin. He also sports one across his nose, and, if one opts to make him shirtless via customization in ''Tekken 6'', it can be seen that he sports numerous ones over his torso and arms, including a bullet wound on his left shoulder. He isn't exactly a bad guy, but he is at least morally ambiguous.

* ''VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition's'' protagonist, Agent York, has a small scar on his cheek that he got when (in his own words) he "arrested a ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} wannabe." It's the talk of the small town he's investigating, and some people are even taking bets on where he got it. [[spoiler: He actually has an extremely prominent heroic scar that covers most of his face, but due to his status as an UnreliableNarrator, it only appears to the player as a notch in his hairline for most of the game.]]

** Book 3's ArcVillain has several {{Rugged Scar}}s (a cross-shaped one on the back of his head and a {{Jason Momoa}}-esque split eyebrow), likely both to underscore his status as an EmpoweredBadassNormal and to make him look intimidating.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "Rapture's Delight", after Stan loses his wife Francine to a Returned Jesus, he gets a scar down and through his left eye, blinding him on that side. He had become a mercenary, not fighting for either side, until Jesus asked him to help rescue Francine from the Anti-Christ. In DeathEqualsRedemption, he goes to his personal Heaven, which brings him back to Earth at the beginning of the episode. Whether that means the rest of the series is Stan's heaven is not mentioned/discussed.
