I meant the usage graphs - e.g. the CPU usage graph in the section
above the processes. Box drawing characters work fine. Next time I
will supply a screenshot too.

It was indeed a font issue, the one I used did not contain the braille
characters. Because the same problem existed on my gettys I thought it
was an encoding issue or something else. Using terminus font at the
moment (as suggested) and it works perfectly fine.

Thank you very much for the help! :)
