* An episode of ''LawAndOrderSVU'' had a woman accidentally find out that she was this for her boyfriend, a closeted NFL star. She was decidedly pissed about it.

Its ironic, due to the public thinking it would be the other way around for one couple

** Subverted with Justin Beiber & Charice Pempengco. It was actually Justin who was Charice's beard. Charice knew she was attracted to girls at the age of five.

Not to be confused with GrowingTheBeard, where a show significantly improves at some point; with the PlayfulHacker of a technology startup, which consists (so they say) of The Beard and The Suit,[[note]]the Beard, to handle the technology, and the Suit, to handle the business side ... and to stop the Beard from walking into traffic or excitedly explaining his proprietary secrets to the first person who expresses an interest,[[/note]] or with Brian Wilson of the San Francisco Giants, whose nickname is The Beard. Or with [[GoodHairEvilHair tropes about facial hair.]]

* Music/ColePorter and his wife, Linda, were mutual beards. Their marriage allowed Cole to hide his homosexuality and allowed Linda to be seen as socially acceptable without having to have sex, which she was turned off of after [[DomesticAbuse an abusive first marriage]]. Despite not being romantic, they did genuinely like each other, and remained married until Linda's death.

* Junichi in DaCapo acts as Mako's beard to help her get rid of an unwanted female admirer. While the motive is genuine, the very first day of acting she's already feeling awkward and begins to treat it more and more as though they were really going out. * In VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi, Kanon is this to Jessica during the school festival in [=EP2=], since her friends have been teasing her about not having a boyfriend (though Jessica does in fact have a crush on Kanon). However [[spoiler:the series heavily implies that Kanon and his "sister" Shannon (who's also Jessica's oldest friend) are actually the same person.]]

* Depending on the player's characterization, the spouse of the protagonist in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' could potentially fall into this realm. Unlike the past games in the series where the protagonist's origins are only vaguely framed ("Vault Dweller", "Tribal", or "Courier"), Fallout 4 establishes that the protagonist is in a heterosexual marriage and has a son, meaning that anyone wishing to play their character as homosexual would likely rely on this trope. Of course, given that the game takes place in a 2077 that has the social sensibilities of 1950s America, it makes sense that homosexual people might "fake" being straight to avoid ridicule.
