* ''PowerRangers'' does this for a lot of {{Sixth Ranger}}s. A particularly memorable one is the White Ranger from the second season, who turns out to be [[spoiler:Tommy]].

* Leela does this to Magnus Greel in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial ''The Talons of Weng-Chiang''. Sharaz Jek does this to himself in ''The Caves of Androzani''. Neither result is pretty. For a more pretty result, look at the Pangol clone unmasking itself to Romana at the end of "The Leisure Hive", revealing a flatteringly made-up Fourth Doctor with nude lipstick on (a very lovely sight after he'd spent half the story accidentally aged to the point where his body was going to regenerate of old age).

* The last episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' had Terry pull off his mask during a rescue attempt in order to convince a kid that it was okay to trust him. Bruce is understandably livid, explaining that because: a) the kid knows what Terry looks like and b) he said he saw Batman's face when he was interviewed afterwards, every villain in the city will be after him for that information. It gets subverted when, subjected to a mental probe, the kid has already replaced Terry's face with the face of his favorite cartoon hero. However, its implied that this was only to throw off the villain, and the kid really did remember Terry's face but fooled the probe to protect Terry.

** Invoked but averted during the FreakyFridayFlip episode -- Lex Luthor, while in The Flash's body, decides to take off his mask and check a mirror. However, [[AntiClimacticUnmasking he has no idea who he's looking at]]. Makes sense, as The Flash's identity, Wally West, is just a white collar worker in the DCAU, a forensics expert in Keystone City, not somebody Luthor would have any reason to even know he exists.

* Spoofed in the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' manga ''Manga/TouhouSuzunaanForbiddenScrollery'', when Aya reveals herself as a {{Tengu}} to Kosuzu. Since her "disguise" in the Human Village is just [[https://en.touhouwiki.net/images/8/85/AyaHumanDisguise.png an early 20th Century newsboy outfit]] (not even bothering to hide her PointyEars), this "unmasking" involves swapping out her newsboy cap for [[https://en.touhouwiki.net/images/c/c3/10Aya1.png her usual hat]]. Kosuzu is still shocked by this.
