* Kylo Ren in ''Film/TheForceAwakens''. Paralleling his [[spoiler:maternal grandfather]], Ren covers his face with a mask for much of the film.

* ''Franchise/StarWars''
** In the beginning of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', Princess Leia unmasks herself for Han Solo.
** The ending of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' has Luke remove [[BigBad Darth Vader's]] mask as his LastRequest following his HeroicSacrifice and [[HeelFaceTurn return to the light side]]. After three full films of build up as TheDreaded and a FallenHero, it's revealed that underneath all that was a sad and heartbroken crippled old man who [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming gets one final moment with his son]] [[TearJerker before his death]].
