* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' when Hagrid and Maxime were acting as envoys from Dumbledore looking for allies in the fight against Voldemort they presented Karkus, the gurg of the last known giant colony on earth, with an indestructible goblin made helmet. The helmet did not prevent Karkus's decapitation by a Voldemort supported usurper.

* The Iron Helmet from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' is actually the lowest tier of heavy headgear, but it featured so heavily in promotional materials and simply [[HornyVikings looks so badass]] that it became Dovahkiin's iconic helmet. Basically, when it shows up in other media, it's a visual shorthand for the whole game.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Throughout the series, the Aureals (aka Golden Saints), a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] in service to [[MadGod Sheogorath]], wear golden helmets adorned with MercurysWings. [[MoreDeadlyThanTheMale The males have much smaller wings on their helmets]].

Because a helmet can obscure a characters' face or hair, as well as make them look like everybody else wearing helmets in a dangerous environment, it's often said that HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic. This trope begs to differ, demonstrating that the identity of a character or group of characters can actually be ''enhanced'' if you give them a helmet with a really unique and memorable design. Especially when a character's helmet serves to conceal their identity, or when a character almost never takes their helmet off, it can become more famous and recognized than their actual face.
