There are many ways to show someone is {{Badass}}. Oneliners, getting a cool power, and knocking everyone down one rank in terms of power. There is also... the scarf. It can be any color, although it's frequently red, yellow or black. And it seems to ''always'' be flowing [[DramaticWind in the wind.]]

Can occasionally be replaced with a sash or a [[{{Hachimaki}} headband]]. Is often, but not always, a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/KamenRider'', one of the earlier uses of the trope and quite iconic in Japan-land. Frequently part of an AdventurerOutfit.

** One interesting note: the Fourth's very, very, very, VERY long scarf was originally intended to be of just ordinary length.

Also, it was ''shortened'' after "The Sontaran Experiment" when its length caused Tom Baker to trip and break his collarbone on location, requiring a double to take his place in long shots (!).
