* ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre'': Mr Rochester seems to be a wild one for a man who inherited a family company and should be a serious businessman. He has a tattoo and he dresses funky (skinny jeans and striped socks!). Teasingly, episode 10 only showed him from a distance and then just his legs. In episode 11, viewers got to see half of his face--with nice stubble.

* Rick from ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' has an egregious case of this, as it is post-ZombieApocalypse, yet he still maintains a perpetual three-day beard growth. He even had PermaStubble when he woke from a months-long coma! This is in sharp contrast to the original comic, where his beard does grow realistically.

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 permastubble, but that's more about being an unkempt {{Otaku}} than a {{badass}}.)

* Some men who usually maintain full beards will choose PermaStubble during the warmer months as a cooler alternative and as a way to bypass the "itchy" phase of beard growth when they wish to grow it back.
* Even without any of the above reason, using electric hair clippers with a short spacer permits maintaining a neat, even permastubble for far less effort than shaving clean.
* UsefulNotes/RichardNixon was about a million times less attractive than Jon Hamm, but Nixon is another example of the Perma Stubble effect caused by dark hair against light skin. Nixon's job as a politician pretty much ruled out a beard, so he had to shave two or three times a day throughout his public life. For his 1960 presidential debate against UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy, Nixon used a makeup powder called "Lazy Shave" ([[http://cabinetmagazine.org/issues/24/chamberlain.php "Hides the beard!"]]) to hide his PermaStubble. It looked terrible. The contrast between sweaty, PermaStubble Nixon and handsome, tanned Kennedy is widely believed to have decided the outcome of the very close 1960 election.

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Charles has faint stubble instead of being clean-shaven (which is his regular look in the franchise), and at first, it seems to convey to the audience that he hasn't fully reclaimed his heroic Professor X identity. He's a relaxed, content principal, teacher, and low-key mutant activist, not a commander of a paramilitary group like in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. However, once he decides that it's necessary for him to step up his role as a leader of mutants, he still keeps the extra facial hair--this illustrates that Creator/JamesMcAvoy's character is "rougher-around-the-edges" than Creator/PatrickStewart's in the original timeline. Xavier's stubble is also a ShoutOut to Detective James "Sonny" Crockett from ''Series/MiamiVice''.[[note]]Charles' costumes were directly inspired by the character on the TV show.[[/note]]
