Revolvers. Crossbows. Machetes. Heck, even a toy spaceship can be an instrument of destruction in the right hands. There's no shortage of weapons at the disposal of the "Walking Dead" survivors — and for some of these folks, that includes their facial hair.
Make no mistake: The following "Walking Dead" characters could absolutely kill you with their beards, and here's how:
Remember that time Rick ripped a man's throat out with his teeth? Turns out, it was the beard doing the biting. Ferocious!
Wondering why the best character on "Walking Dead" not named Carol Peletier only has a mild amount of facial scruff? That's because he plucks the hairs from his face, spits on them, and they magically turn into arrows for his crossbow. There's a reason he doesn't need to run around with a quiver, you guys.
Did you know the ex-military man isn't a natural redhead? It's true! His handlebar 'stache is actually stained red with blood, because it's secretly a boomerang. Oops, comic book spoilers!
Remember when Ty hammered a horde of walkers to smithereens in season four? We have it on good authority that it wasn't just the trusty hammer that saved his life; he pushed his bushy-bearded chin into several soft skulls during the fight, too. True story!
Rick Grimes nearly lost his head when he saw a ghostly vision of Shane Walsh wading through the war in Woodbury. And it's not just because Rick was shocked to see his deceased friend out and about; it's that his deceased friendly suddenly had a beard!
When Philip Blake cast aside the Governor name and took on a friendlier alias, he also took on the most horrific beard in "Walking Dead" history. Legend has it that walkers far and wide were so turned off by his appearance that they didn't even attempt to eat him. The best offense is a good beard defense!
The beard is but one weapon in Morgan's arsenal, lending necessary theatricality to his crazy man appearance. But rumors persist that he has indeed killed a walker or two with nothing more than sharpened stubble.
He didn't mean to, but he caught some of that sick prison virus in his beard and gave it to you. :(
His eyebrow-beard combo is so lethal, that just looking at it could drive you into a fear-induced heart attack.
Ah, who are we kidding? Not even a perfectly groomed goattee could save this softie in the apocalypse.
No beard yet, but you better believe he'll be just like his daddy when he's all grown up.
But seriously, Rick Grimes
Look at that thing. It'll eat you alive.
