Limp and an Eyepatch
You pretty much know when you see these guys-he's tough!
Whether filthy buccaneer or grizzled gunslinger, someone who lost an eye is a bad ass.
I pondered while driving yesterday (where I do a lot of my best thinking) that the root of this could be Odin chief of the Norse gods and for whom Wednesday is named = Woden. He traded an eye for wisdom and he slew a lot of frost giants. This collective archetype could be the reason we think eye-patch = tough guy.
