* In one of the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels, Ponder Stibbons reflects that despite all his best efforts he has never been able to grow a "proper" wizard beard. In fact, the most facial hair he is ever given in the illustrations is a barely-there dusting on his upper lip and chin.

* Franchise/{{Superman}} in the Pre-Crisis version didn't grow facial hair in a yellow sun environment, so grooming wasn't normally an issue.
** However, the ComicBook/PostCrisis version had Superman having to periodically shave using his heat vision reflected back on his face. In fact, that fact was a dramatic point in an early story of this era when Clark had to suddenly travel to South America and didn't have time to shave his Five o'clock shadow off. So, when a crisis developed that required Superman, Clark didn't dare get into costume considering his unshaven face would be a dead giveaway for his secret identity.

* Creator/LaurelAndHardy always managed to resist beard growth (Hardy's toothbrush moustache never grew out to the rest of his upper lip), even if they starred episodes as homeless and hungry idiots.



** In ''Discworld/{{Monstrous Regiment}}'', Polly is complimented on achieving this, by officers who don't know she's a woman. Several of the top brass are also known for it, and for promoting it among the troops. [[spoiler: They're women too]]

* Male tributes in ''[[Literature/TheHungerGames The Hunger Games]]'' never grow facial hair while they're in the arena. It's not known what the Capitol does to them to prevent them from growing beards but whatever it is it's only temporary since several male victors grow facial hair later in life.

It's not known what the Capitol does to them to prevent them from growing beards (Katniss assumes that the boys are injected with a hormone that prevents it, similar to how she and the other girls get injected) but whatever it is it's is, it seems to be only temporary temporary, since several male victors grow facial hair later in life.
