Added DiffLines:

* [[BigBad: Zero]] from ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' uses the look. It serves to hide their identity by hiding their voice and concealing their face, and protecting them from the knockout gas he uses to kidnap the main characters.

** Neil Gaiman's [[ComicBook/TheSandman version of the character]] homages the look - though in his case, the "gas mask" is actually the [[DarkerAndEdgier skull and spinal column of a dead god]].

Basically any character that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin wears a gas mask and, well, a longcoat]]. Occasionally, there will be a good reason for this, like the character deals with cold weather and/or toxic fumes on a regular basis, but mostly these characters exist because it [[RuleOfCool looks really cool]]. [[BadassLongcoat Trench coats or dusters]] seem to be the preferred apparel, though other kinds of long coats are acceptable.

acceptable. To make it easier to breathe, some models allow you to hook up a motorized air pump to make sure you get enough air.


Added DiffLines:

* Modern gasmasks are often the modular type, with a replaceable and interchangable filter cartridge that lets you switch out for purpose-built protection for certain hazardous substances.

When he finally takes it off, it's a significant moment and goes towards establishing his humanity. He wears the long coat because it was his grandfather's.]]

Can be one sign of a PostApocalyptic setting with an unlivable environment. Also common attire for DoomTroops thanks to the [[FacelessMooks dehumanizing]] and vaguely skeletal/insect-like look of gas masks as well as the implication that WeaponsOfMassDestruction are in use by one or more sides. Either way, you are almost certainly living in a CrapsackWorld if this look is practical or common. See also PuttingOnTheReich.
