* Every marine in ''OnePiece''. Sometimes they even look the same. To Luffy, they may even be GoddamnedBats. Also, almost every member from the Franky House in One Piece. They all have a face, some screentime and sometimes even a line to say but in the end they're just useless.

** [[RedsWithRockets Soviet pilots in general]]. Usually have (inaccurately) a red star on their helmets.

* The various Combine Overwatch Soldiers in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', and the gas mask wearing marines in ''Videogame/{{Half-Life 1}}'', though in the latter case, only one of the [[YouALLLookFamiliar various soldier models]] actually had their faces obscured.
* Several of the gangs in the game ''{{Manhunt}}'' wear masks that range from a simple nylon over the head to hellaciously creepy smiley faces covered in blood. The only gang that doesn't wear any still hides their features with camouflage facepaint.
** At least until the protagonist [[YourHeadAsplode makes their heads pop]].

* Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles used the Foot, who were turned into MechaMooks for the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 original cartoon]]. This might explain why they made such crappy ninjas.

** In one episode, the GI Joes attack an unknown COBRA base which turns out to be a "recreational facility" (On the south pole...), and we see a bunch of COBRA mooks in a ''swimming pool'' - they are all wearing identical blue swimming trunks and their ''standard issue helmets and masks''.

*** The comics were heavily into showcasing random and not-so-random Cobra bad guys, they literally remove their face obscuring helmets. Heck, a faceless goon literally kills many G.I.Joe soldiers. Literally.

* ''XenaWarriorPrincess'' and ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys''. Both shows drew from the same small pool of stuntmen (and women), so all the baddies usually had something face-concealing or at least partly-face-obscuring on when they were beaten into the mat by the heroes.

* In ''{{UFO}}'' the mystery of the alien invaders (their name and true nature are never revealed) is enhanced by having them always wear spacesuits, with helmets filled with green fluid. Episodes where we're supposed to feel empathy for an individual alien ("Survival", "A Question of Priorities") feature [[InSpaceEveryoneCanSeeYourFace a lot more close-ups]].

** Taken UpToEleven by the First Order Stormtroopers. Being [[{{Tykebomb}} raised at childbirth as soldiers]], not only they wear identical armors, their personalities are stripped away by carrying serial numbers as names (e.g. FN-2187, FN-2199) in order to maintain their absolute obedience. The faceless part also seems to be strongly enforced, as seen when General Phasma disciplines FN-2187 (later known as Finn) for taking off his helmet.

Added DiffLines:

** Necron Warriors do have faces, but the bulk of them have been killed and reanimated many times over. The process damages the engrams that used to be their organic minds, and thus they are essentially devoid of anything resembling a mind or personality, and have little to no individual identity.

** The Stormtroopers are meant to be EliteMook of the GalaticEmpire and said to be [[InformedAbility precise]] in their [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy marksmanship]]. Their armors are made of Plastoid and can protect the wears from blaster shots.

** Somewhat justified for Clone Troopers, although their armors are [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience color coded for different ranks]], beneath their armor, they all are clones of Mandalorian BountyHunter Jango Fett and with
the ''Franchise/StarWars'' series.exception of Boba Fett, the clones wear identical armors.

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' has Class D personnel -- the resident {{red shirt}}s -- wearing headgear that obscures the top half of their face explicitly to avoid humanization, and thus, the possibility of having regular staff becoming friends with Class D staff.
** Just to make sure you ''really'' don't feel for 'em, D-class personnel aren't technically even employees -- they're criminals who've either been sentenced to life, or were on death row[[note]]or Foundation employees who stepped so far out of line that they probably would end up sentenced to life if such shenanigans ever made it as far as court[[/note]]. The appeal of being D-class appears to be that you won't be cooped up for long; even if you survive the crazy-dangerous testing for which the position was created, you get terminated at the end of the month, quickly and painlessly.
