Why was Spock replaced? He's the perfect example since his "good" counterpart is clean shaven and he's exceptionally well-known.

Some examples that need attention: Comic books
- Although Aquaman has never been truly evil, he was at his most unsavory throughout the 1990s, where he, with his ZZ Top style beard, was exemplary of the '90s Anti-Hero craze and bordered on a Darker and Edgier parody of himself at times.
- Doctor Steel. Though not so much evil as mad...
- Inverted in Fiddler on the Roof.

Certain friendly characters (Quevedo, Guadalmedina) used mustache plus goatee but not beard.
