Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** Kuvira's army in Season 4 has thousands of these acting as her rank-and-file grunts. This [[FridgeBrilliance might have something to do]] with being prepared for the eventuality of a lethal-force [[spoiler:airbender]] attack - [[spoiler:which can involve bending the very air out of someone's lungs]].

* You, as the PlayerCharacter in the MMOFPS ''Verdun''. Justified in that it simulates WorldWarI and you're a soldier on the frontlines where chemical warfare was in it's heyday. Fail to get your mask on in time when the poison shells start falling and...[[TooDumbToLive well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Kabal from ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' has a gas mask that he uses as a respirator and to hide his horribly scarred face. Some of the characters in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' like Sheeva even take him for a mere Outworld {{Mook}}. It's actually a subversion as he ([[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor mostly]]) fights for the good guys, and later in the original timeline he becomes boss of the Black Dragon after he rejoins it. He upgrades to a GasMaskLongcoat in later games.

* In [[Creator/HarmanAndIsing Rudolf Ising's]] [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1939]] anti-war cartoon ''WesternAnimation/PeaceOnEarth'', the now-anthropomorphic animals recall how Man finally wiped himself out in one final war. The grimness of these sequences is hyper-accentuated by their never-removed gas-masks which seem to run the length of their whole bodies- Grandpa thinks that the gas masks were actually "[[SinisterSchnoz great, long snoots, which fastened on to their stomachs]]", a sufficiently horrifying description, when combined with the masks mirrored lenses ("...and their eyes flashed!") to creep out at least one grandkid. The two last ones shoot each other dead before falling into the muck and mud, ever faceless.

** The Ghost People in the ''Dead Money'' expansion of ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' are a more traditional example, being mute, numerous, and universally hostile. They're also extremely agile and strong and don't die unless dismembered or disintegrated (or unless you learn the perk from Dog).
** Also, the Lobotomites from ''Old World Blues''. They may seem like mindless cybernetic zombies at first, but they can both dish out damage and take it, and are quite accurate with firearms.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has a habit of throwing Raiders at you with a penchant for sporting various types of gas mask helmets, one of which is even a scarecrow-esque burlap sack with holes for eyes and tubing run through it as a make-shit filter.
*** The eponymous Power Armor makes a return and, subverting the downgrades in Charisma from earlier iterations in the series, giving your suit a coat of Minutemen-themed paint will actually boost the stat, instead.

** It should be noted, however, that there are, indeed, gas based anomalies which manifest as toxic green clouds hovering in the air, occasionally with some manner of green liquid condensing and dropping down to the ground. Not something you want to breath in without protection.
