• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

That baby is plotting something.


...Ganondorf has an exceptionally unique case of unibrow, in which his eyebrows connect clearly with his hair, thus forming one very long eyebrow. This puts the typical unibrow (one that connects in the middle of one's face above the nose) to shame...

The Urban Dictionary

Ah, the Unibrow. Not generally considered the most attractive kind of facial hair on the market. So like most kinds of unfashionable/unattractive appearance, characters sporting one are mostly consigned to being either evil, or comical.

  • Type I: If a character has a unibrow, they're either evil, conniving, scummy, or have some defining negative trait.
  • Type II pretty much just boils down to "unibrows are funny".

A Subtrope of Unusual Eyebrows and Good Hair, Evil Hair.

Examples of Big Ol' Unibrow include:

Type I

Type II

  • Fran Stalinovskovichdavidovitchsky from Dodgeball.
  • The man whose eyebrows are connected and who has a gold tooth, in EarthBound. Granted, he's also invisible, so you have to take his word for it.
  • Gary Larson, when he wasn't giving his characters glasses, was generally drawing their eyes simply as a thick line.
  • This Superbowl ad.
  • Bert from Sesame Street.
  • Vakama in Bionicle:The Mask of Light.
  • Una Brau, Frau Farbissina's seen-once lesbian lover in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.
  • Ed from Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy is a Type II.
  • So is Ed Generic from Everyday Heroes.
  • The Todd gets one for a one-off visual joke in Scrubs. His waxer was in the Bahamas.
  • Satoshi Horio, The Chew Toy from The Prince of Tennis.
  • Henchman 24 from The Venture Brothers is described by 21 as "Jerry Seinfeld with a unibrow".
  • Groundskeeper Willie from The Simpsons
  • King Bob from Recess.
  • Daggett in The Angry Beavers.
  • Spanky Ham in Drawn Together.
  • Wallace and Gromit: Gromit, being a dog, has no (extra) hair on his brow, but its constant animation can give him this appearance. It conveys everything he feels, more effectively than words could, really.
  • Ryotsu from Kochikame.
  • Major Monobrow Monogram from Phineas and Ferb.
  • Francine has one in American Dad. Typically she waxes it, save for one episode where she let it grow in.
  • WWE's Santino Marella sports one, and he's one of the funniest guys on the roster, Face or Heel.
  • There's a superhero in Empowered who's even named Unibrow. Of course this trope applies to him. We don't learn much about him, except that he's a Superdead.
  • Both the Irish cop and Leslie Clark the salesman in the Disney short Duck Pimples.


  • Real Life example: Frida Kahlo is famous for her self portraits that emphasize her large bushy unibrow. Rare in that it is not villainous or comical, but rather is valued for its artistic value and redefinition of beauty.
    • Kahlo was actually rather classically attractive. She just Accentuated The Negative whenever it came to drawing herself due to a bad self-image.
  • Poppy from Lola and Virginia. Instead of being evil or comedy, she's one of the main character's two best friends. Visually the unibrow is played as part of her tough, tomboy image. But plotwise it's not really an issue and isn't even pointed out by the other characters.
  • Akaishi in Cross Game. Neither evil nor funny, his unibrow is just there.
  • Chi McBride. He usually plays likeable characters though.
  • Brazilian writer Monteiro Lobato.
  • Anthony Davis, a member of the recent NCAA champion team, the UK Wildcats, is known for his unibrow. So much so that there is merchandise relating to it ("Bow to the Brow"; "Fear the Brow") and they have even redecorated the mascot to give it a unibrow.
