* ''Franchise/StarWars'': In the prequels, Obi-Wan Kenobi usually strokes his beard meditatively just before doing something totally BadAss. He and Anakin Skywalker spend a good minute stroking their chins, signaling to each other on how they should make their getaway from General Grievous in a deleted scene from ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith''.

* In ''Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space'', Tumok tells of how he consulted a Hermit Guru on Olympus Mons. Lacking a beard, the guru strokes the icicle clinging to his chin.

* In one ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' book, while deep in thought, the narration mentions that [[TeenGenius Artemis]] would've stroked his beard if he had one.

** And is most put out when he starts to do so in ''The Chinese Gold Murders'' only to have the villain start stroking his even ''more'' impmressive beard first. He is vindicated in the end, though, when the villain's beard turns out to be false.

This is the need for either [[OldMaster Old Masters]] or WickedCultured villains to stroke their [[BadAssBeard Bad Ass Beards]][=/=][[BeardOfEvil Beards Of Evil]] as a compulsion. [[DastardlyWhiplash Evil types]] usually do this while preparing their {{Evil Plan}}s, sipping AGlassOfChianti, and indulging in [[SlouchOfVillainy Villainous Slouching]]. This version is somewhat [[DiscreditedTrope discredited]] today.

Not to be confused with stroking someone's ''else's'' beard (which is typically a flirtatious or possessive gesture).

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Grand Maester Pycelle would stroke his [[WizardBeard long white beard]] to give himself an air of wisdom. Unfortunately after Tyrion Lannister has Shagga forcibly shave it off during an interrogation, he loses this implied authority, just looking like a sickly old man.
