* Many anime mecha piltos and superheroes have helmets that cover their mouths, for exactly this reason. Examples include ''Anime/NeoHumanCasshern'' and ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer.''

In Live Action, this is useful when stand-ins and stuntmen are required for certain scenes, or when someone is [[ActingForTwo playing two characters]] in the same scene. The trope also comes into play when a movie or TV show is filmed to make it easier to add noises, music, or dialogue after the filming itself. If a work is going to be dubbed, this is also useful for briefly avoiding LipLock and allowing the voice actors more freedom.

** Used in some of the more video-based reconstructions to obscure the fact that body-doubles (or occasionally, body-not-even-close-to doubles) are playing the characters. For instance, the BBC's official reconstruction of Galaxy 4 features a fully working [[TinCanRobot Chumblie]], but for the scene where the Doctor strikes it with his walking stick we just see the stick extend from the edge of the frame and hit the robot, with no shot even of the hand holding the stick. In the [[http://whovisions.weebly.com/ Whovisions]] reconstruction of "Power of the Daleks", there's a live action shot of the Doctor holding his 500-year diary in front of his face (notably the prop is larger than the one used in the original story, which was pocketbook-sized) in order to obscure the fact that the FakeShemp playing him is just a ''Doctor Who'' fan in a stovepipe hat.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' about Superbowl XXXIII had everyone cover their mouths with beer mugs as obviously as possible when mentioning the Falcons or Broncos by name, a nod to the animation being done long before it was known what teams would be playing. The gag is then extended to UsefulNotes/BillClinton's status as President[[note]]whose impeachment trial was ongoing at the time[[/note]] and [[UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton Hillary Clinton]]'s status as his wife[[note]]said impeachment involved Clinton lying about an affair.[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'', there are many scenes where all the characters have to wear gas masks. Also, many of the older male characters have enormous mustaches that obscure their mouths.

* In the making-of documentary for ''[[WallaceAndGromit The Wrong Trousers]]'', Nick Park mentions how handy it is to have shots where characters are speaking from offscreen or are holding up a newspaper in front of their face or something.

* ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' and '''[[Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII III]]'' did this, when Crispin Glover didn't return for them; in 2015, his character is played by actor Jeffrey Weissman, in heavy old-age makeup and hung upside down by a ''"medical device"'', due to a ''"golfing accident"''.

* The ''Blake's 7'' episode "Orac" combines this with Fake Shemp. The actor playing Travis was out sick with a hand injury when it was time to shoot the studio scenes. So they had a stand-in, only seen from below the neck or behind a tank of murky white liquid, then had the Travis actor loop the dialogue later.

** Also employed via sound-alike for a morphed Aurico in the ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' teamup Forever Red, and by body double and soundalike for Antonio in the ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' special Clash of the Red Rangers.
** Done literally when Saban had Toei shoot extra footage of Rita and her goons lip-syncing English lines.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' had one [[Radar/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball particularly dubious]] exchange between Gumball and Darwin in [[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS5E3TheBoredom "The Boredom"]] occur with their mouths off-screen, possibly indicating that the producers expected it to be cut and didn't want to have to reanimate the scene.

* ''Film/SchoolOfRock'' features this -- but instead of Jack Black, it's a guitar. In the [[spoiler:climax of the film, Jack]] breaks out a guitar solo; but his guitar NEVER faces the camera, and so you don't see the necessary hand movements to perform the solo.
** This is less jarring as Black does play guitar and we often see his hands during the remainder of the film.
** Earlier, ''Film/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'' did the same thing with Rufus's amazing guitar solo at the end of the film.
*** Rufus' guitar solo was actually played, but the hands playing the guitar solo and George Carlin are never in the shot together, as they aren't his. Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, on the other hand, did use this.

** In an eerie case of GenerationXerox, ''Film/TheCrow'' had to be finished in much the same way after the death of Bruce's son, Brandon. Fortunately, advanced special-effects techniques kept the obvious usage of this trope to a minimum.
