Stubble Trouble is a furry webcomic created by R. C. Powell. The comic started as a slice-of-life comedy featuring Rennon the Shaved (a fox/wolf with a shaving fetish) and his many friends. Over the years it has grown to feature numerous other characters and over-arcing storylines. It is set in an alternate version of Earth that is populated by anthropomorphic beings and humans as well as superheroes, monsters, and dinosaurs. The comic frequently features jokes about movies, television, video games, current events, other comics, and shaven furries. Stubble Trouble has multiple cameo appearances of characters of the author's friends as well as characters from other furry webcomics (including Ozy and Millie).
- Rennon the Shaved is a fox/wolf hybrid with a shaving fetish. He's a very nerdy goofball whose life is dominated by popular culture. He started out as the main character in the comic. Although he started with fur, he has since spent the rest of the comic totally shaven. He is dating Mel. He is the author's fursona.
- Gynette started out as a jackal/spider that could take her own head off. She later became a shape-shifter as well as fully modular. She makes up for her often freaky appearance by having a cute, loving, and playful personality. She dates Reggie.

Stories and style
Stubble Trouble often varies between stories told in a sequential order and comics that appear to be random. As such, there is a wide variety of stories and jokes presented. The comic started out as pencil drawings, then the author used a marker for the lineart, and later all the comics were digitized and colored. The art style and character models have developed over time. The comic often has a self-deprecating sense of humor and much of the focus is on popular culture. Superheroes and supervillains make frequent appearances in the comic and some have become secondary characters. Dinosaurs are seen in zoos, in the wild, and as pets.
