* Katchoo in ''StrangersInParadise'' has Z-shaped scars on her wrists, presumably from a [[BungledSuicide suicide attempt]], but there is no official explanation in canon. Tambi seems to have scars everywhere except on her face, but the criss-crossing ones on her hands are the most obvious. There is a canonical explanation for ''her'' scars: [[spoiler:she used to [[SelfHarm cut herself]] to while in the employ of [[BadBoss Darcy Parker]].]].

* ''FanFic/TheBridge'' gives several examples of varying severity. Monster X has several scars on his face and torso he can't remember how he got, [[spoiler: because they are from his fight with Grand King Ghidorah centuries ago]]; however they are obscured by his armor. Princess Luna has a long, thin scar under her wing from her teenage years fighting Lord Tirek alongside her sister. Godzilla Junior is CoveredInScars, but subverts the trope because his HealingFactor makes them virtually invisible unless he's out of energy and his factor shuts off.

Often AcheyScars.

Often AcheyScars. Sometimes, too, an indication that the character will suffer DeathByDisfigurement, especially if [[DoubleStandard female]] or {{Bishounen}}.

** Maedhros also loses a hand in ''TheSilmarillion''. (Then, it was a LifeOrLimbDecision, after an ICannotSelfTerminate.)

** In the third book of the same series, Evrim loses an arm fighting the snow equivalent of a sea monster. Hes really depressed and awkward about it for two more books until hes reunited with his father-in-law and wife, who are basically just relieved hes not dead.

* In the second season of ''TheShield'', Ronnie is beaten by a criminal named Armadillo and has his face pressed to a grill, leaving a nasty burn on one side of it (Armadillo did this in retaliation to Vic doing it to him earlier in the season, and Vic had done this to him in retaliation for killing one of his informants). Ronnie notably grows his beard out over it so it becomes less noticeable, but still apparent, for the rest of the series.

* In ''Manga/OishiiKankei'', [[spoiler: Miki has her back covered in scars from the earthquake. She uses them as a reminder to not become soft, as she believes her parents' death during the earthquake was her fault.]]

* Seems like the HealingHands in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has a limit on what it can repair. [[KnifeNut Cinque's]] [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] covers an eye she lost back when she fought and killed [[RankInflation an over S-Rank Mage]]. Meanwhile, the body of Commander Waltz, Subaru's commanding officer in the Disaster Rescue division, is covered with burn scars he got when he pushed himself too hard during the airport fire incident, an act that made him known as a hero, but injured him enough to be retired from front-line duties. ** In the original series, Nanoha's father Shirou, when seen in the bath, is covered with scars. They were received during one incident he had at his old job that resulted in him being hospitalized for a long time. Presumably, this incident was the same one that [[SchrodingersCat killed]] his counterpart in ''TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever'', so this Shirou got off lucky.

* [[XWingSeries Garik "Face" Loran]], child actor working for Imperial recruitment, picks up a scar during a botched Imperial raid on an (unsanctioned) Rebel attempt to kill him. He could've had it removed, of course, through [[AppliedPhlebotinum bacta treatment]], but he keeps it for years, as [[TheAtoner a reminder]] of the harm he did indirectly. [[spoiler: After Ton Phanan dies, a provision in his will requires Face to remove the scar (which he does, though he keeps a fake one for a while), which is in turn symbolic of Phanan's help convincing Face that he really shouldn't feel guilty about it.]]
