* Kobayashi, the SinkOrSwimMentor from ''Manga/TheLawOfUeki''. It seems more to show laziness than [[BadAss badassitude]], though he does have his BadAss moments.

** Michael Westen grows a five-o'clock shadow in the second season mid-finale. This episode he portrays a hard-drinking bodyguard to catch the attention of a would-be kidnapper. It fits the character personality, but also makes him that much more BadAss when he "gets religion" and fights back.

So you're an AntiHero, or maybe TheDrifter or an equally gritty protagonist MadeOfIron. Now, how to get street cred as a {{badass}} Mofo? [[StuffBlowingUp Cause big explosions]]? Shoot with GunsAkimbo? Nah, just stop shaving!

* Holland from ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' has some around his chin, and it does make him look fairly {{badass}} (you can see him without it in a flashback, though).

* When Solid Snake's being an [[{{Wangst}} angsty]] self-proclaimed bastard in the first ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', he's clean-shaven. In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid 2'', when he's being far more personable and open, cue a shadow--apparently to invoke a [[WalkingTheEarth vagrant living on a miserable budget]], according to the character designer. Interestingly enough, an EasterEgg allows Raiden to give Snake a shaver as a present right at the start of the game, which causes him to be clean-shaven towards the end. You just have to find it first. (His [[HoYay friend]] Otacon also has stubble, but that's more about being an unkempt {{Otaku}} than a {{badass}}.)

* [[NoNameGiven {...}]] of ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' has one, since he's...well...[[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies dead]]. He's also a master of {{deadpan|Snarker}} [[FirstPersonSmartass sarcasm]] and very protective of his friends. [[DrJerk Doc Worth]] also has stubble, although in his case it's less {{Badass}} and more because he doesn't care enough about his appearance to shave it.

* In many variants of OurVampiresAreDifferent (Such as AnneRice's), vampires can't change the length of their hair, because their regeneration simply causes it to grow back to the original length in minutes. Hence, they're stuck with whatever hair-length they had when they were 'turned'. Thus, for a vampire, having stubble could actually be justified.

* Lampshaded in ''{{Warbreaker}}'', where Vasher's perpetual beard stubble leads Vivenna to wonder if he actively trims it too look like that. [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed to be ''literal'' perma-stubble; Vasher's a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Returned]], which means his appearance changes only if he actively wills it to]].

* In ''ASongOfIceAndFire'', Stannis sports a beard that is trimmed so short, it's just a 5 o'clock shadow along his jaw.
