* Velvare from ''Wbcomic/TheSilverEye'' rarely goes around in Gallitan without some sort of fancy mask, to the point where he now wears them more because people expect him to than any other reason.

* ''Everyone'' in ''Manga/{{Dorohedoro}}'', justified since mages get masks as part of their contract with daemons, and Cayman presumably does not want to scare off little children looking at his face. En is a particular bad case of this, even among a ''city'' of powermasked people. Those magic-users too weak to make a contract still wear masks in imitation of the strong, although theirs are a tad less impressive.

* At least half of the appeal in {{Franchise/Bionicle}}. Despite years of similar builds in the toys, there is ''always'' a new set of masks with each set of toys. InUniverse they grant a ton of powers, to name a few: [[BarrierWarrior shielding]], {{flight}}, [[XRayVision x-ray vision]], [[ImprobableAimingSkills accuracy]], [[VisibleInvisibility invisibility]], [[TeleportersAndTransporters teleportation]], even [[WindsOfDestinyChange altering probablity]]. (But the series has been {{ReTool}}ed a bit away from this, now including other headgear without powers.)

** In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKk1u5RMTn4 Carnival of Rust]]," the Carnival customer conceals her face behind an impressive gas-mask, while its workers are all bare-faced, implying that the environment is toxic.

* The mask is also closely related to the CharlieBrownFromOuttaTown angles, where a banished/disgraced wrestler returns with a not-very-disguising mask under a different name to try to "clear" the banned wrestler (ie himself)'s name. Longtime fans still debate the ''least'' effective masked identity ever: [[Wrestling/DustyRhodes The Midnight Rider]] or [[Wrestling/AndreTheGiant Giant Machine]].

[[Wrestling/HulkHogan Mr. America]] wasn't highly regarded either.

Added DiffLines:

* {{WebAnimation/RWBY}}: The terrorist group White Fang have masks made to resemble Grimm, the soulless monsters that have terrorised Remnant for it's entire history. While this makes most of them FacelessMooks, their leader Adam Taurus, who is implied to have started the tradition, is one of the most dangerous fighters in the series, not to mention [[KickTheDog one of the most cruel]].

* The mysterious masked man in the second season of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. He could take the full brunt of Nanoha's attack without being fazed and routinely made short work of anyone he attacked.

* Despariah, the BigBad of ''Anime/YesPrecure5'', wears full kabuki makeup to the point that her expressions are completely unreadable. Later revealed to be an actual mask that shatters to reveal her true face when it's time for her to play FinalBoss.

*** Also Quattro Bajeena, a ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' expy of Char who just happens to be... Char himself, sans mask, but with sunglasses that cover just as much. Said sunglasses did jack since everyone already knew that he's Char.
