* Much like the quote [[Quotes/AntiClimacticUnmasking here]], ComicBook/TheJoker defies this trope in ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamCity'' when Harley Quinn tries to remove Franchise/{{Batman}}'s mask.

* In ''WesternAnimation/HulkAndTheAgentsOfSMASH'', The Collector pulls off Spider-Man's mask and angrily rants that he's so ordinary looking that it's a wonder why he would bother concealing his face.
* In an episode of American Dad, Roger uses one of his personas to cover his antics although everyone knows it's him. At the end when he's defeated he pulls off the disguise and says "It was me, Roger, all along." Duh.

* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': When Kylo Ren is called a "creature in a mask", he takes his helmet off to show he's entirely normal-looking. It's not covering a deformity, concealing his identity, or serving a practical purpose, it's just part of his obsession with emulating Darth Vader. [[spoiler:He does get a scar by the end of the movie, which would justify wearing the mask later.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'', Peter is BroughtDownToNormal and is facing off against the Insidious Six because they realized the dude who was always taking his pictures might have a connection to Spider-Man, and kidnapped Aunt May. Because he lacks most of his powers and is facing off against six super-powered foes, he is quickly beaten and unmasked before Kingpin and dissatisfied members of his criminal empire like Silvermane... only for Doctor Octopus to declare that Peter Parker could not be Spider-Man, as Peter did not have any powers. This pisses off Silvermane and he mocks Kingpin for supposedly kidnapping an old woman and forcing her desperate nephew to play along.

** The Lone Ranger should be the trope namer for this. Why is he wearing a mask at all. Who would recognize him. Without the mask he's just some guy. With the mask, he's the guy with the mask who gets too much attention.

* {{Defied|Trope}} in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' (see [[Quotes/AnticlimacticUnmasking here]])--SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker doesn't ''want'' to unmask Batman because it's Batman he's obsessed with. Finding the person under the hood would [[SecretIdentityApathy just ruin the fun]].

* In ''Astonishing ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' as written by Creator/WarrenEllis, the X-Men spend the better part of a story arc hunting down a man named Kaga who is using dead X-Men, Brood and Sentinels to try and kill them. Kaga turns out to be [[spoiler: an old cripple in a wheelchair.]] Even better, his motivation for trying to kill them is anticlimatic in itself, amounting to [[spoiler: hatred of them for being gorgeous, picturesque mutants, rather than like him, a deformed old freak whose more mundane mutation was a result of Hiroshima.]] Kaga himself {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this, sneering "What were you expecting? A master plan? A scheme to turn off the sun? [[ThisIsReality This is the real world]]. Hatred and disgust are good enough reasons to want to kill people."

* ''WesternAnimation/WildWestCOWBoysOfMooMesa'': When Shock Holiday was captured and unmasked, the characters witnessing the unmasking were disappointed by the lack of any special features at his face. Then again, it was overshadowed by the previous unmasking of the criminal's impersonator. (Marshall Moo Montana and Sheriff Terribull made a bet over who captures Shock Holiday and agreed the loser would leave Cow Town)
