->''"I used to date this one girl; she had a beauty mark on her cheek. That's sexy, we fellers like that. Like Creator/CindyCrawford. Well we get to kissin' and stuff. I get a look at it. ''It was a tick!''"''
-->-- '''Creator/LarryTheCableGuy'''

Beauty marks are facial moles. They are called that because, over the course of history, they have at times been considered an attractive feature. Generally, to be considered attractive, a mole has to be small, not protrude from the person's face, and definitely not have any hairs growing from it. They will usually be either above the lip or below the eye. Fake beauty marks have sometimes been fashionable, especially in the 18th century. Most fake moles were made of silk or velvet, and were sometimes cut into shapes like stars or hearts.

This trope is about how facial moles have been handled in fiction, whether they were true Beauty Marks or just plain disgusting moles. There have been dozens of stories resolved because of the discovery of "the family birthmark". A common gag in comedies featuring a character with a mole is having it explicitly revealed to be fake, or else have the mole spontaneously move around the character's face between close-ups. Occasionally, the ChosenOne has this. And occasionally, just occasionally, the presence of a mole means a skin cancer plot is approaching.

In {{anime}}, a tragic character will sometimes have a mole near the outside corner of one eye, because in Japan such a mark symbolizes a hard, sad life--the placement calls to mind a tear of sorrow.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'':
** Kyon has one on his neck. A mole on the back of the neck means the person is in danger, which being the LoveInterest of a {{Tsundere}} who [[RealityWarper subconsciously can alter reality, he certainly is.]]
** Mikuru has one in the shape of a star on her left breast. It's a plot point because [[spoiler:older Mikuru uses it to identify herself to Kyon]].
* Kagehoshi in ''Manga/FlameOfRecca'' has two on her chin, and when she's described as having "two moles" Recca corrects the person who says it and calls them "beauty marks".
* Ritsuko in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. In one darkly flirtatious scene, Kaji even [[LampshadeHanging reminds her of the connection to tragedy]] while touching her cheek.
* From ''Manga/TheDemonOroron'', Ororon and Othello are rare male examples. The former has three moles underneath the left eye, and the latter has only one.
* Rui Kisugi, resident heroic FemmeFatale from ''Manga/CatsEye'' has one on her cheek.
* Chiyoko Fujiwara in ''Anime/MillenniumActress'' has the classic {{anime}} tragic mole near the corner of her left eye.
* White in ''Anime/TekkonKinkreet'' also has the traditional 'tragic' mark [[http://highdefdiscnews.com/reviews/tekkonkinkreet/image2full.jpg underneath his right eye]].
* Yukina from ''Anime/NightRaid1931'' has one mole on each cheek.
* Sasha in ''Seikon No Qwaser'' has one to go with his brusque AntiHero attitude.
* Albert from ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'' has a tragic mole by the corner of his left eye.
** Mercédès, Albert's mother, has one under her mouth.
* Elliot Nightray of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' has a tragic mole by the corner of his left eye.
* Tyki Mikk of ''Manga/DGrayman'' has one under his left eye. It seems to foreshadow moral conflict, except that he really ''isn't'' the TokenGoodTeammate so much as he's perfectly okay with killing humans but still finds them fun.
* Ayumu Yamazaki of ''Manga/PeacemakerKurogane'' has one near the corner of her mouth.
* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' CreepyTwins Yu Lan Xia and Xia Yu Fan both have one at the corner of their eyes.
* Yukio Washimine of ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' has one under her mouth.
* ''Manga/{{Karin}}'': there's one near the corner of Fumio Usui's right eye.
* Kohane of ''Manga/XxxHolic'' has one near the corner of her left eye.
* Maria Ross in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has one too. When Envy impersonates her, he forgets to add it, so Hughes [[SpottingTheThread realizes something's up]]. [[spoiler:It doesn't save him.]]
* Nuriko of ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has one under his left eye. It gets quite the focus in a ''very'' tragic scene of his past, when his child self's face is shown while he cries his heart out [[spoiler: after the death of his younger sister Kourin]].
* Vash from ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' has the standard teardrop mole under his left eye. In the manga [[spoiler:his twin brother Knives has one under his right eye.]]
* Matsumoto of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' has one beneath her lower lip.
* Yukio from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' has three (two under the left eye and one on his chin).
* Neu from ''Anime/WeissKreuz'' is revealed to have the tragic variety when Youji breaks her [[SunglassesAtNight visor]]. [[spoiler:As does Asuka, Youji's dead love interest. Guess what: they're the same person, and it... fits.]]
* Wapourif from ''Anime/{{Simoun}}'' has a beauty mark under her mouth.
* Hisaya Miki of ''Manga/{{Beelzebub}}'' has two, one under the outside corner of each eye. Considering his rather traumatic middle school experiences, it's apt.
* Lancer from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' has a small beauty mark under one of his eyes. This not only serves as the usual shorthand for a tragic life, but is also indicates that his true identity is [[Myth/CelticMythology Diarmuid ua Duibhne of the Love Spot]].
* Akashi and Hanuki from ''Anime/TheTatamiGalaxy''.
* In ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', the twin sisters Noel and Caren both have beauty marks. Caren has one under her right eye and Noel has one under her left eye.
* Chizuru "Chizu" Honda and her older sister Ichiko, both their respective class beauties, in ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}''. Chizu's placement near her eye falls under the "tragic" category considering her [[spoiler:pregnancy from either a gang rape (manga) or [[{{Bowdlerize}} an illegal relationship]] with her teacher (anime)]] backstory.
* Mimina from ''LightNovel/LadiesVersusButlers'' has a heart-shaped one above her tailbone.[[note]]This is actually a "Mongolian Spot", a mark that appears on around 90% of Asian children, usually on or near the buttocks. Because these bruise-like marks almost always disappear by the third to fifth birthday, having one has been associated with near-infantile immaturity, thus often being a source of much embarrassment.[[/note]]
* Sakaguchi from ''Manga/TheHighSchoolLifeOfAFudanshi'' has one under his left eye.
* Shirotani from ''Manga/TenCount'' has one below his left eye.
* ''Anime/VariableGeo'': Satomi's is on her left cheek, just under the corner of her eye. Fans of the series consider it to be [[UnkemptBeauty one of her charm points]], along with her [[BoyishShortHair short mussy]] hair.
* Joseph from ''Manga/TheAncientMagusBride'' has one under his right eye.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', it's revealed that [[spoiler:Hatake Kakashi]] has one on the left side of his chin, under the corner of his mouth. He hides it [[spoiler:under his mask]], and it fits ''very'' well in the Tragic astereotype: his life has been incredibly hard since very early, what with him losing [[spoiler: his father (and even found his corpse)]] and [[spoiler: his two best friends (one of them [[SuicideByCop killing herself at his hand]] [[HeroicSacrifice to save their village]], and the other [[BreakTheCutie losing it]] and becoming the BigBadFriend)]].
* ''{{Manga/Tomie}}'' has an example on the face of the titular character and series BigBad.
* Both Tamura and Satoshi from ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'' have beauty marks on their cheeks. Tamura is a tragic example, being very troubled due to [[spoiler:past sexual abuse]], while Satoshi is an [[{{bishonen}} attractive]], flamboyant boy.
* Tanizaki Naomi from ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' has one under her left eye.
* Tomoka from ''Ro-Kyu-Bu!'' has one under her left eye. It symbolises how she led a sad, friendless life due to her strong focus on winning in basketball, something which nearly made her give up the hobby until she met the other 4 girls in her new club, who accept her the way she is.
* Chizuru from ''Manga/KimiToBoku'' believes his best physical feature is the beauty mark under his eye. He uses the "attractive" cliche rather than the "tragic" one.
* [[PrincelyYoungMan Austria]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' has one on the left side of his chin, and according to WordOfGod, it's an [[FantasticArousal erogenous zone]] for him. The Austrian micronation [[LargeHam Kugelmugel]] also has one underneath his left eye. [[PerpetualSmiler Portugal]] has one underneath his right eye.
* In ''Manhua/RavagesOfTime'', Xun Yu has two teardrop moles, one under each eye. His nephew Xun You has one mole at the end of each eyebrow.
* Suzu from ''Manga/InThisCornerOfTheWorld'' has one above her chin, on the right side of her face. It's how her husband Shuusaku was able to remember her after they first met when they were children.

* The young Earl in the ''Art/MarriageALaMode'' series has a large false beauty mark on his neck to hide a syphilitic sore. The older woman in ''The Inspection'' also has false beauty marks on her face for the same reason, and the young girl will likely need to start wearing one where she is dabbing her mouth with a handkerchief. And in ''The Lady's Death'', the Earl and Countess' daughter is also wearing a false beauty mark on her cheek, having inherited syphilis from her father.

[[folder:Comic Books]]

* Po's mother in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' has one by her chin.

* Miguel in ''WesternAnimation/{{Coco}}'' is a rare male example, though in his case its more to enhance his cuteness.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]

%% * In ''Film/{{Willow}}'', even the infant queen Elora Danaan had one.
* In the original film version of ''Film/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Buffy had "the mark of the ChosenOne", a mole. Buffy was less than impressed.

* Constantine, Kermit's CriminalDoppelganger in ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'', has one.

* In ''Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' by Thomas Harris, Clarice Starling has gunpowder burned into her cheek. It's noted that it is placed in a way that the French call 'courage'.

* Subverted in ''Literature/GorkyPark''. Irina's mark is actually damage from a forced drug injection given to her in a Soviet mental hospital for dissidents; it doesn't detract from her beauty, but she's also blind on that side of her face.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* An episode of ''Series/TheNanny'' had Fran accidentally discover that a famous celebrity's famous beauty mark was fake and accidentally tell Cindy Adams.

* In Myth/CelticMythology, Diarmuid Ua Duibhne had his "love spot" facial mole, so iconic that he is sometimes known as "Diarmuid of the Love Spot". It was in fact a magical mole that caused any woman who saw it to fall in love with him. [[BlessedWithSuck This caused a lot of problems]] for Diarmuid, particularly when his lord's fiancee, Grainne, betrayed her intended and pursued Diarmuid instead, leading directly to his death.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* WWE wrestler Wrestling/JillianHall had a disgustingly mutated fake one when she debuted. To make matters worse, she ditched that gimmick when Wrestling/{{Boogeyman}} ''ate'' it. She moved on to [[HollywoodToneDeaf horrible singing]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'': As in the OVA adaptation, Satomi's mole is just beneath the corner of her left eye. Which is best seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9el6TjEYJeM in her character portrait and her ending.]]
* VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} has a beauty mark located right under the right corner of her lips. It's so iconic for her, that for her portrayal as a GuestFighter in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for 3DS and Wii U'', whenever {{Franchise/Kirby}} uses it's PowerCopying ability on her, he gets her beauty mark in addition to her BoyishShortHair.
* [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]] has a beauty mark on the side of her chin, starting in Videogame/MetroidOtherM. The creators had wanted to give her one sooner, but the technology wouldn't allow it back in the day.
* ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'': WordOfGod stated that the two of them are related, though how this is so has not yet been made clear.
** Rei Kurosawa from ''[[VideoGame/FatalFrameIIITheTormented III]]'' has one beneath one of her eyes.
** Hisoka Kurosawa from ''[[VideoGame/FatalFrameVMaidenOfBlackWater V]]'' has one near her lip.
* From ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'': [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Lulu]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Fang]] both have beauty marks to accentuate their statuses.

* Dr Strangelove in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: Peace Walker'' has one below her lower lip, although in her case it's possibly a symptom of her sun sensitivity caused by her leucism. The Boss has a Japanese teardrop mole.
%% * We finally see that [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]] has one in ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM''.
* Margaret Moonlight of ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' has one on her lower left cheek. It makes sense when you see her picture...
%% * Nouhime, wife of UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga from ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors''. Also, [[LadyOfWar Zhen]] [[MusicalAssassin Ji]] of ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors''. Both are stunningly beautiful.
* Carmelita from ''Franchise/SlyCooper.'' Bonus points for her mole actually being visible, even though she's an [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic fox]].
%% * Hilde of ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur IV'' has a rather prominent one just to the left of her mouth.
%% ** Tira (debuting in ''III'') also sports one, under her right eye.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'', the Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie, have a beauty mark underneath their eye (Callie's left eye and Marie's right eye). Their predecessors in ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon 2}}'', Pearl and Marina, also have beauty marks, albeit below their bottom lips on Pearl's right and Marina's left.
* In ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu'', Kashuu Kiyomitsu has one below his mouth and Yamatonokami Yasusada has one below the corner of his right eye. In this case, their moles are a visual reminder of their connection to each other (they had the same master, Okita Souji of UsefulNotes/TheShinsengumi) and the fact that they're each other's RedOniBlueOni.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
** Queen Mikoto is a YamatoNadeshiko with a beauty mark under her lower lip. Her life is quite the tragedy since she went through lots of losses in both past and present: not only she lost her child aka the PlayerCharacter, but also [[spoiler: her homeland, her big sister, [[StarCrossedLovers both her first love/the Avatar's father and her second love/her husband]]... and ultimately, [[HeroicSacrifice her own life]].]]
** The Avatar's looks can be customized, which includes giving him or her beauty marks that can be located under their left eye or the left corner of their mouth ([[StrongFamilyResemblance like Mikoto's]]). And the story puts him/her [[BreakTheCutie under the wringer]] no matter what path is chosen by the players.
* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', Clive has a mole between his lower lip and chin. True to the "moles on the face are signal of tragedy" myth, he faces lots of difficulties through the story: the struggles of the Deliverance, his sister Claire and girlfriend Mathilda's captivities (and possible deaths), [[spoiler: his best friend Fernand's FaceHeelTurn and eventual death, ''his own early death'' if Mathilda kicks it...]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Mia Fey has one on her chin, and when she possesses Maya and Pearl it shows up as well.
** Franziska Von Karma also has one on the left side of her face, [[AmbidextrousSprite or the right when she is looking to that side.]] Interestingly, it's ''her'' who has the "teardrop" mole, and not Mia who is the one who dies.
%% * JB in the ''[[VisualNovel/GrisaiaNoKajitsu Grisaia]]'' series has a little mole just below her left eye.
* Mikan Tsumiki from ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' has one next to her left eye. She was ''terribly'' abused in her past, as a result she is ''deeply'' traumatised [[spoiler: '''and''' she's ultimately executed in one of the cases]]; therefore, she plays the "tragic character" sub-trope ''very'' well.
* Hikari Hinomoto of ''[[VisualNovel/TokimekiMemorial Tokimeki Memorial 2]]'' has a mole at the bottom outside corner of her left eye. It's a visual trademark of hers ; however, she [[AvertedTrope averts]] the Japanese symbol mentioned, as she's a GenkiGirl who's [[EasierThanEasy very likely]] to become the Main Protagonist's VictoriousChildhoodFriend.

[[folder:Web Comics]]

Though, at times, you can or can't see it due to both the show's [[OffModel animation errors]].

** So did that of Creator/CindyCrawford (although people suggested she get it removed, and at least one ''Vogue'' cover had it airbrushed out).
%% ** As did Niki Taylor.
* Creator/ElizabethTaylor also had [[http://i548.photobucket.com/albums/ii322/qquila89/128.jpg?t=1272143536 a mole on her cheek]]. She recalled that in her teens, the studio wanted her to remove it, but she resisted.
