When in a blockbuster action film, after the main actor has saved the world, killed hundreds of arabs/russians/aliens/zombies (delete as appropriate) and survived several other deadly situations, he comes out with only a small scratch on his face, which usually actually makes him look cooler, instead of looking battered, tired and pissed off like he would in real life.
The {Hollywood Scratch} is often seen im anything by arnold schwarzenegger or sylvester stallone:
Person 1: 'Jesus Arnie just saved the world, but he looks fine. He's only got a little cut on him'
Person 2: 'This isn't real man, its Hollywood, and that's not a real cut, its a Hollywood Scratch '
