[[spoiler:This is an early clue that Miranda is a villain, as the scar on her back is the same as the League of Shadows brand seen in ''Film/BatmanBegins''.]]

* A rare solo version occurs in ''[[TheVampireFiles Bloodlist]]'', when newly-undead Jack examines his own injuries to try to determine how he'd died.
* Since Geralt of ''TheWitcher'' series is in a job that constantly makes all kinds of nasties mistake him for a chew toy, and he also ReallyGetsAround, this tends to happen at least once a book.

* [[VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]] experiences more than one of these, although they are not usually after having had sex. It tends to happen pretty much any time anyone who hasn't seen his collection of scars before sees him without long sleeves and long pants. On the other hand his future wife fantasizes about exploring those scars, slowly and thoroughly, in bed.

* ''AbleTeam''. Government 'specialist' Carl Lyons is asked post-coitus by DEA agent Flor Trujillo how he got his various scars, including a crescent scar on his elbow caused by a rear-view mirror hurled at him by the impact of a machine-gun bullet. He says they're from breaking up family fights when he was a cop, and the elbow one was from an attack-trained clam on the beach. Flor doesn't believe him.
