* [[PhantomThief Phantom Renegade]] of ''{{Medabots}}'' is a parody of the flamboyant cape-wearing GentlemanThief character type, sporting a ridiculous [[ExpressiveMask expressive smiley mask]], [[{{Dojikko}} having a tendency to trip, fall out of trees, and generally be an accident magnet]] (fumbling with a rare medal in the first episode puts the entire series' plot in motion), and frequently gloats to himself about how good he is. This fact is lamp-shaded in ''Medabots'' ''TheAbridgedSeries'', where he denies being "a ripoff of the main character from ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'' or [[Franchise/SailorMoon Tuxedo Mask]]".

* [[BusouRenkin Captain Bravo]] pulls a version of this. His Arms Alchemy Silver Skin takes the form of a long coat and hat with the hat tilted forward and the collar sticking up to hide his face quite effectively. The entire getup is a self-repairing suit of armor to boot.

* In the 1940s, the original "mystery man" costume of the original [[ComicBook/SandmanMysteryTheatre Sandman]] (Wesley Dodd) was a suit, [[BadassLongcoat long-coat]], fedora and gloves -- with a gas mask. This uniform was subconsciously [[RetCon inspired]] by the look of (''[[ComicBook/TheSandman Dream of the Endless]]'') who wore a robe and mask into battle and who granted Dodds his prophetic dreams. Dodd's costume later became more colorful to match the other superheroes of the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyofAmerica. No relation to the spandex-wearing Garrett Sanford or Hector Hall, save being derived from Dream of the Endless somehow.

* Midnight, a CaptainErsatz of the Spirit, originally published by QualityComics and now part of TheDCU. Ed Gorman created a new version of Midnight as a back-up strip in '' ComicBook/MsTree Quarterly''.
* The MarvelUniverse has a couple currently appearing in ''The Twelve'' (a series about revamped [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] characters): the Phantom Reporter and Mr. E. The artist mentions in interviews with Newsarama that he had to tweak both of their designs just a tad so they didn't look so much alike.

** Finnish newspaper comic ''Fingerpori'' poked a fun at this, showing him with heavy tan-lines in parts where the mask covers his face. Holding a secret identity in a tropic environment is a tough job.

* The King, a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] character from TheDCU, was a MasterOfDisguise. But, when he wasn't disguised as someone else, his 'costume' consisted of white tie and tails, an opera cape, a top hat and a domino mask.

* Benjamin J. Grimm, The Thing from Marvel's Fantastic Four, usually gads about NYC wearing a fedora and longcoat while wrapping a scarf about his chin. A pair of sunglasses completes the ensemble. While not altogether concealing, the outfit tends to attract less attention than him walking about in his shorts.

* While it's not always apparent, a close look at the Zero costume of ''CodeGeass'' reveals that, along with a mask and cape, the main outfit is essentially a flamboyant business suit of the type the Chairman from ''IronChef'' might wear and as it happens the same kind of flamboyant, vaguely 18th century styled nobleman's outfit that the Britannian nobility wear in the series.
