* Done horrifically in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11175004/13/Star-Wars-Episode-I-The-Familiar-of-Zero Star Wars Episode I: The Familiar of Zero]]'' where it's eventually revealed Kirche keeps her hair in PeekABangs because her father once beat her with a red hot iron then shoved her face into hot coals to keep her from bleeding on the carpet. As a result, her eye's gone and her face around it is crushed and covered in burn scars.

* [[TheArchmage Ged]] of ''Literature/TheEarthseaTrilogy'' has disfiguring scars down one side of his face, inflicted by an evil LivingShadow he summoned as a boy. He seems to regard them as a reminder of the cost of arrogance and misuse of magic.

* Fallen angels from Creator/LaurenKate's ''Fallen'' series can cure most injuries easily and without scars, the only exception being when they are burnt by blood of another fallen angel or demon. That is why [[spoiler: Arriane]] has a huge scar on her neck.

* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''Literathre/TheCurseOfChalion'', Cazaril carries the scars from when he was flogged; it's used once to positively identify him.

** When Riley comes back in Season 6, he has your standard Awesome McCool scar across his left eye. He also has one from when he cut out Adam's mind control chip, and probably has another from when Adam stabbed him.

* Trolls from ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy'' can usually heal any injury without scars (that is, if they are powerful enough). Unless the injury was from ColdIron. As a result, [[TheProtagonist troll prince Tristan]] has a network of scars covering his back from the time he was flogged with iron-tipped whips.

* The anime version of ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'' has Yamato receive some scares in the final episode. [[FridgeLogic Strangely enough]], when the world is regressed to before the Septentriones attack it, he ''still'' has them, despite it not making any sense.

* [[HealingFactor Although they have the ability to heal and even regenerate lost limbs]], [[{{Claymore}} Claymores]] have some notable examples. Universal to all is the fact that they [[TakeOurWordForIt have a massive, hideous scar on the abdomen]] after going through the process of having yoma flesh implanted into them. Individually speaking, Irene/Illena never regenerated her lost arm after [[spoiler: confronting Priscilla]], Raphaela, much like Chichiri from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has a massive scar over her left eye [[spoiler: after her awakened sister, Luciela, clawed it]], Galatea [[spoiler:likewise has an ugly scar across her eyes, which she inflicted upon herself after the Northern Campaign and which cannot be healed anymore due to age]], and Miria [[spoiler: has gotten a [[XMarksTheHero crossed-shaped scar that covers nearly her entire face]] after her botched first assault of the Organization HQ]].

* Averted in ''TheDresdenFiles'' despite Harry's huge scar collection. Injuries of wizards don't heal until the wound closes, like a normal person's- they heal until the injury is GONE. As in, there's no sign that the injury ever happened. This has happened several times to Harry; he's had a number of broken bones in his life, and yet not a single formerly shattered bone has any healed fractures. His bones simply look as if they've never been broken. He's in the middle of this process now with his left hand (which effectively melted when Harry's magical shield kept out the flames but didn't keep out the heat); over five books, it's gone from a lump of flesh the doctors wanted to amputate to a human hand again, albeit one with shiny red scars on the fingers, hand and palm.
* In the ''AnitaBlake'' books, Anita has her arms and collarbone scarred from various attacks, Asher's face and upper body is half-melted due to the Church experimenting with holy water to cure him, Jean-Claude has whip scars on his back from before he was a vampire, and at least two of the vampire bad guys have holy water scars from Anita or another Marshal.

*As [[Gensokyo20XX Gensokyo 20XXV]] reveals, Yukari has a scar on one of her hips in the shape of "売女", the kanji for "whore", the which she gained during imprisonment [[http://i2.pixiv.net/img-original/img/2015/01/11/04/38/10/48111069_p0.jpg]]. Likewise, Ran has scars she had obtained during the events of 20XXII (scalded with hot water), 20XXIII (burns from nuclear blast), and 20XXIV (attempted suicide)[[http://i4.pixiv.net/img-original/img/2014/05/22/05/55/38/43638875_p0.jpg]] and, apparently, she was self-conscious about them, as 20XXV mentions her trying to cover them.
This list shows the last 10 events of 559. Show all.
