* In Creator/PeterJackson's ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'', [[spoiler:King Thranduil of the Wood Elves]]. While he's trying to convince[[spoiler:Thorin]] for a share of Erebor's treasure in exchange of supporting him on his quest, he shows him [[spoiler:the left side of his face with a heavy burn scar down to the bone, complete with missing cheek and a blind eye]], suggesting him that he knows perfectly what the fire of a dragon can do. [[spoiler:It's not stated if the scar is covered with a magical illusion or the scar itself was a magical illusion to show Thorim how badly damaged his face was before]].

* MelGibson as the title character in ''The Man Without a Face''.
* Roy Neary (played by RichardDreyfuss) ends up like this in the opening of ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'', on account of the UFO giving him sunburn. Half of his face was protected from the shade of his automobile. This results in a later scene where Roy and the female lead laughingly compare burns.

* OlderThanPrint, the goddess of birth and death is depicted this way in many cultures, including many Native American and Central American legends. Hel from Myth/NorseMythology may be the most famous. She was half beautiful maiden and half either crone or skeleton, [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on which myths you read]]. Sometimes depicted withered from waist down, instead of two-faced, though.
* Janus, the Roman god of transitions, has a face on the back of his head so he can always see where he was (the past) as well as where he's going (the future). Though, again depending on the myths you read, Janus was sometimes depicted as having a face on the right side of his head and a face on the left side.

to:

* ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'': Dae, the [[MonsterProtectionRacket Organisation's]] MadScientist MadScientist, has a facial disfigurement that's very revealing of his personality. His healthy right side is that of an old man with drooping eyelids, who addresses people with oily FauxAffablyEvil politeness and regards everything with quiet amusement. His left side is exposed muscle and bone stripped of all flesh including the lips and eyelids, so that his saucer-like eyeball never blinks and his teeth resemble a skeletal grin. This is the side of him that shows his morbid glee in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''.watching the results of his manipulations.

* [[IncrediblyLamePun Half example]]: There's a bit in the film version of ''AmericanPsycho'' where Patrick Bateman kills someone with an axe, and the blood splatters all over one half of his face. At one point the camera films him in a way that shows only the clean side, for a moment, and he turns around.
