* '''Zig Zagged''': Characters with stubble seem to be either end of the extreme. Either they are a wimp and loser or they are a stone cold badass. And the few {{CrouchingMoronHiddenBadasse}}s that appear to be losers but are actually very powerful.

* '''Inverted''' - The least badass character is the only one with stubble.
