* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' a number of the fighting groups the Baron has acquired during his conquest of Europa wear face concealing goggles and mask set-ups, and most of the [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120601 Vespiary Squad]] wears goggles with round masks over their mouths and a hooded shirt. In this case the masks are designed to prevent [[PuppeteerParasite Slaver Wasps]] from entering and taking over the wearers rather than being gas masks.

* In ''Cthulhu City'', an alternative setting for ''Trail of Cthulhu'', the Transport Police are noted for these. Ostensibly, their job is to prevent the city's particularly virulent strain of typhoid from getting out, and they wear the masks and similar gear to avoid infection. In practice, the Transport Police are the enforcement wing for the city's cult-infested government, their job is to prevent player characters from escaping, and the actual purpose of the masks is to conceal that the Transport Police [[WasOnceAMan are no longer, strictly speaking, human]]. The book even points out that the official justification for the masks doesn't hold much water: typhoid fever isn't airborne!



** In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'', Psychos appear to wear some form of gas mask.

* ''Series/TheDefenders2017'': Danny and Colleen attack Cole and several other gas mask-wielding men who are being used by the Hand to destroy bodies with acid. Cole manages to flee the scene, but Danny chases him into an alleyway and shoves him against a wall, grilling him for information...only to be interrupted by Luke, who had been following Cole as a favor for Misty. This prompts a very one-sided fight where Luke just stands and lets Danny punch him repeatedly with no reaction, until Danny punches Luke in the side of the face with the Iron Fist.

* ''Film/TheCrazies''. In both [[Film/TheCrazies1973 the original]] and [[Film/TheCrazies2010 the remake]], all of the soldiers wear gas masks, although the Trixy virus is spread via drinking infected water.

** Possibly the most iconic example would be the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_Embassy_Siege Iranian Embassy Siege]], where [[BritsWithBattleships Special Air Service]] operators retook the embassy after a six-day siege. One of the more iconic images of the event were the [[http://www.militaryimages.net/photopost/data/550/58Embassy_6.jpg images]] people watching the news or reading the paper got to see of darkly-dressed SAS operatives wielding [=MP5=] submachine guns and sporting bug-eyed lens gas-masks. It's a look that has carried over to a lot of other media depicting counter-terrorist and special operations forces.

** The XOF troops in the beginning ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' are wearing gas masks with large oxygen tanks on their backs because they're storming a burning building. In the same game [[ChildSoldiers Tretij Rebenok]] [[spoiler: a.k.a. Psycho Mantis]] wears a gas mask with a prominent filter at the front.

Finally, the various {{Mooks}} that populate the areas of operation in Afghanistan and Central Africa will start wearing gas masks if you make it a habit of using sleeping gas on them.
