[[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.
