*Minor character L'le in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' has a horrific scar cutting across her throat; she looks like she had almost been decapitated. Though she could easily have it removed, she wears it as a reminder of the only truly bad mistake she ever made (we don't find out what), and also because it's intimidating and “part of personal myth.”

* Lucia and Gale Glory in ''Manga/RaveMaster'' both received scars about ten years before the story began. Gale's seemed to have been there more [[RuleOfCool to make him look more]] BadAss, as it recieved no real attention even after we saw how he got it. Lucia's came from being grazed by three of god knows how many bullets were fired at him, and are used more to clue the readers in to who he is before they actually reveal his identity.

** From the Marvel ''[[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel G.I. Joe]]'' comics, Snake-Eyes originally wore a mask because he was really ugly without it--burn scars and so on. About halfway through the comics' run, he got reconstructive surgery and looked pretty much normal afterward, except for a scar on his lip. He kept wearing the mask, mainly because he is supposed to be a BadAss ninja supercommando.
