* Probably the {{Trope Maker|s}}--a likely source is the romantic image of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI [[AcePilot fighter pilots]], and later [[BadassBiker motorcyclists]], who needed the scarf partly against the wind, but mostly to keep their neck from chaffing against the collars of their leather jackets when they turned their heads.

* The MirrorUniverse version of the Mane-iac, who is a superhero, has a scarf as part of her costume. It's functional. In battle, she tricks opponents into hitting the scarf instead of her head and neck. It is designed to be easily detachable if it is grabbed.

* ''FanFic/TheBridge'':
** Monster X's human form has a twin tailed scarf as a part of his MorphicResonance motif to his true form, which as a split tail. As for the latter half of this trope, he's probably in the top five badasses in the story, even after being turned into a human.

* In ''Fanfic/{{Wonderful}}'', Wonder Red wears a red scarf. It's her "battle scarf", and Taylor doesn't appreciate Sophia calling it dorky.

* Mr. Chang's scarf in ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' doesn't serve any practical purpose other than increase the coolness of his outfit (which, itself, is a homage to JohnWoo's TheTriadsAndTheTongs movies) tenfold. Needless to say, he is extremely, over-the-top badass.

* Satone Shichimiya from ''Anime/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'' wears one specifically for the "asskicking" imagery. She at the very least likes pretending she can kick ass.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider'', in its earlier incarnations, has the hero with a scarf. Just having it makes them BadAss. Much homaged and referenced in Japanese media, as stated above and seen throughout the article. The tradition was dropped in 1987's ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' [due primarily to safety reasons], but the following {{Mythology Gag}}s have cropped up in later shows:
