* Creator/GeorgeMacDonald, influential Scottish fantasy author, was not a wizard but often wrote about them, and had a most impressive beard to show for it [[http://www.george-macdonald.com/photos/19c_images.html]].
* This trope may originate in a tradition for philosophers and other learned men of the ancient world to wear a beard as a symbol of their station. See Creator/{{Plato}}, Creator/{{Aristotle}} or Roman Emperor [[http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Julian_(emperor) Julian the Apostate]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Twilight Sparkle goes to Nightmare Night dressed up as Star Swirl the Bearded, a unicorn mage famous for mentoring one of the founders of Equestria and inventing the [[StealthPun amnio]][[ShoutOut morphic]] [[Literature/HarryPotter spell]]. As you can guess, the costume includes a long, snowy-white fake beard.

Exactly how long this beard is depicted as has varied in the show -- when Twilight Sparkle went for Nightmare Night[[note]] pony Halloween [[/note]] as him, her fake beard.beard went to the ground, and his depiction in a flashback in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]'' gave an ''enormous'' beard large enough to fill the screen, but the comics show him with a much smaller beard. [[spoiler:Once he appeares on-screen in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E25ShadowPlayPart1 Shadow Play]]", he's shown with a full but much more sedate beard, paired with a mustache.]]
** Sunburst has a long and somewhat scraggly goatee. Played with -- the beard, alongside his messy and book-filled study and his [[RobeAndWizardHat star-spangled cape]], helps reinforce the appearance in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E1TheCrystallingPart1 The Crystalling]]" that he's a successful and powerful wizard. However, he isn't actually good at using magic and never became a wizard, although he ''is'' a very knowledgeable scholar of arcane lore.

* 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 Triwizard 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.
