* Justified in the ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' series, where the grunts are methane breathers and require respirators in oxygen atmospheres. Inversed as well, as they are the weakest mooks. The Heretic Elites wear gas masks as well, although the Covenant Elites don't use them in the same environment (the gas giant Threshold).

** The Allies started to issue gas masks once they were fully developed. They didn't wear them constantly because they were incredibly uncomfortable, and you could actually choke in one if you didn't switch the filters often enough. They also didn't work perfectly even by the war's end, with some gas agents still causing its mask-wearers to vomit (either ruining their mask, or forcing them to take it off and be vulnerable to even ''more'' gas and likely different agents that were used simultaneously in the air).

** In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Finn says that Stormtrooper helmets are designed to filter out smoke, but not poisonous gas. This hearkens back to the boarding scene at the beginning of A New Hope where Stormtroopers use smoke grenades to provide cover during their entrance.
