Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/SecondApocalypse'': Drusas Achamian is a sorcerer of rank in the School of the Mandate and sports a long beard with five white streaks in it. However, his beard is pretty standard, given that most cultures outside of the Nansur Empire cultivate beards.

* Homnibus the good wizard in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs''. Gargamel tried to use magic grow one in an episode, believing he'd be more respected in the wizard community with a beard, but he didn't read the directions right, and the beard filled his entire house. Naturally, the smurfs had to rescue him.

* Dumbledore of ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has such a beard. Played for laughs in ''Goblet of Fire''. Dumbledore draws an "Age Line" around the goblet to prevent any underage students entering themselves for the Triwzard Tournament. Anyone who tries, even if they've magically aged themselves up, is knocked backwards... and finds that they've suddenly grown an enormous beard. When the Weasley twins try it, Dumbledore compliments them on the quality of their beards.

* Enforced in Diana Wynne Jones' ''Literature/DarkLordOfDerkholm''. [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Mr. Chesney's]] regulations state that very wizard leading a Pilgrim Party ''must'' wear a long beard in order to appear ancient and wise, [[YoungerThanTheyLook no matter how old they really are]]. For this reason, women aren't allowed to be party wizards, one of the many, many complaints the locals have about the whole affair.

See also RobeAndWizardHat, and RapunzelHair. Compare and Contrast BeardOfBarbarism, BeardOfEvil (some evil wizards have this instead of a Wizard Beard.)

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': The wizard Dorukan acquired a proper [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0196.html long white beard]] in his old age, well after attaining Epic status. Eugene, Roy's father and Dorukan's student, has one, but it is fairly short.

** When Elan gets it into his head that he wants to be a wizard, part of the outfit he pulls together involves a fake white beard.

* Most depictions of {{Merlin}}, natch.

* Most depictions of {{Merlin}}, Myth/{{Merlin}}, natch.



* {{Merlin}} is normally shown with such. In ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', his beard keeps getting tangled up or caught in doors. Oddly, medieval portrayals of Merlin do not give him the beard -- that came later. Merlin was only shown in early works as a youth, and in later works -- like Mallory -- he's a shapeshifter who takes the shape of a child, a woman, and old man, but never reveals his true form. The [[Series/{{Merlin}} TV series]] has him as a youth, but he gets the beard when he transforms into his old self.

* Merlin on ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' usually averts this trope, since he's a youth in the series. But it is put into play when he uses the aging spell to turn himself into "Dragoon" and the beard is definitely there.
