* ''WesternAnimation/AlphaTeensOnMachines'': Mr. Lee, the team's benefactor, has [[MismatchedEyes Heterochromia]]. It's hard to tell with the tinted lenses he wears but whenever he has one of his more suspicious moments his hard stare exposes them before he [[AdjustingYourGlasses adjusts his glasses]] to cover them up. When his true nature is revealed and he becomes the BigBad he wears a different set of tinted lenses that highlight his different colored eyes which in turn add to his new demented MadScientist look.

* In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', the Joker has [[GlasgowGrin mouth-scars in the shape of a smile]]. In the 1989 film, his disfigurement was the result of getting shot through the cheeks before falling into a vat of chemicals, but then twisted further into a smile by a botched plastic surgery.

* In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', Morgoth has incurable burns on his hands from handling the Silmarils. He was also eventually stuck in a permanently frightening EvilOverlord form because he had become too weak and feeble to change his appearance to something resembling beauty. Also he has a scar on his face from the eagle Thorondor.
** This also happens to his DragonAscendant Sauron. In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', about the only physical description given of Sauron's current form is that he is missing a finger on "the Black Hand." Said finger was the one that previously wore the [[ArtifactOfDoom One Ring]], which was severed by Isildur in battle on Mount Doom. More immediately obvious is the fact that he was cursed with ShapeshifterModeLock after his body was destroyed in the destruction of Numenor he had engineered, making him unable to ever again take a pleasant form. These examples show Tolkien's views of evil corrupting.

** With a snake-like face that nosedives into the deepest, darkest bowels of the UncannyValley, you can tell at first sight that [[BigBad Voldemort]] is evil.
*** Thought it is pointed out Voldemort used to be handsome. However his features began changing due to his creation of [[SoulJar Horcruxes]], and after his [[spoiler:resurrection he gained his terrifying form.]]
** Dumbledore's left hand is blackened and scarred after trying to remove one of Voldemort's curses. But Dumbledore is decidedly on the good side. [[spoiler: It does represent his moral failings, though.]]
** Peter Pettigrew, [[IncrediblyLamePun on the other hand]] sacrifices his hand to reconstitute Voldemort. He gets a beautiful silver hand in payment. [[spoiler:But the hand is loyal to Voldemort only and ends up strangling Pettigrew to death when the latter hesitates--yes, only ''hesitates''--out of a debt to Harry.]]
* Similarly, Harry Dresden in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has one of his hands blackened and useless for several books. [[spoiler:There was one area of his hand that wasn't burnt. And it was shaped like [[FallenAngel Lasciel]]'s seal.]]

** Roose Bolton, lord of a house famous for flaying their victims alive, is utterly normal looking except for his eerie, pale eyes.
** His [[BastardBastard bastard]] Ramsay Snow, later legitimized to Ramsay Bolton, is hideous looking, with blotchy skin, fleshiness and thick lips, though shares his father's eyes. He is one of the most [[ASongOfIceAndFire/CompleteMonster villainous characters]] in this CrapsackWorld.
** Averted with Theon Greyjoy. He begins as a handsome and well-built man, but betrays his foster-brother Robb Stark by seizing Winterfell for his father. After he is [[spoiler:captured by Ramsay and tortured, having his fingers and toes flayed and possibly [[GroinAttack castrated]], leaving him a hideous, limping wreck, he starts becoming a better character.]]
* Averted with Crowley in ''Literature/GoodOmens''; he does have yellow snake eyes (hence the CoolShades), but really is "evil" only by nature of his job description. Since he gets given human bodies to blend in on Earth, the implication is that he/Hell can't change these. He also has snake-skin boots that are implied to not be boots and he can "do interesting things with his tongue", both of which are suggestive of his origin as the Snake which tempted Eve.

** Joseph Curwen has a mysterious black spot in the middle of his abdomen that is implied to be the mark he recieved to signify his membership in the local coven. Curwen has, along with anyone else raised from the dead using the means he had at his disposal, multiple anomalous physical characteristics such as loosely-knit skin and odd respiration.

* In the ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'' series, Nightmare has a bulky demonic right arm that is passed on to anyone he possesses. Siegfried's arm is restored by Soul Calibur, [[spoiler: But it looks like Pyrrha's is only going to fade away given time to heal after she turns good again.]]

%% * You don't really need any sort of hint concerning the Overlords of the ''VideoGame/{{Overlord}}'' series, what with their spikey, face-concealing helmets, the ShouldersOfDoom, clawed gauntlets, etc. all quite obviously screaming "villain" from the CD cover. But considering the title, do you even need the hint?
%% NOTE: No physical defect mentioned. Silenced that one for the time being.

** Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias has shades of this in ''BeforeWatchmen'', where he is rendered as very nearly TheBlank, with inhumanly bright blue eyes that almost look like they're glowing. It is, however, completely aaverted in ''Watchmen'' proper, where he is an emphatically normal-looking human being.

* Averted with green-skinned misunderstood political activist Elphaba from Theatre/{{Wicked}}. Of course, everyone ''thinks'' she's evil, even giving her the name Wicked Witch of the West, since it's a retelling of TheWizardOfOz. Played straight with her {{Yandere}} sister, wheelchair-bound Nessarose.
