The list of people known as the Bald is somewhat more complete, at twelve entries, only one of which is fictional. But how is it that neither one has an "In popular culture" or "In anime" section? Please get on that.

    Let's not forget Bald–hairy (Russian: лысый–волосатый) is a common joke in Russian political discourse, referring to the empirical rule of the state leaders' succession defined as a change of a bald leader with a hairy one and vice versa.
