* ''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.

* Caesar Clown's mooks in ''OnePiece'' were introduced this way, wearing rather creepy gas masks. It's justified in this case, however, because Caesar's powers (and their armaments) are all based around gas based weapons.

* Roadhog in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} is another example of a major, named villain wearing a pig-themed gas mask. In fact, he was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally going to pay the trope straight as a mook for a cancelled game before he was refitted for]] ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Overwatch]]''. The gas mask is justified, since he is suffering from radiation sickness and is possibly mutated and needs a supply of bottled oxygen to survive.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'': Scarecrow wears a particularly nightmarish [[http://www.spermio.com/portal/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/scarecrow-arkham.jpg version]]. Justified, since he sprays around his terrifying gas frequently.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''
** ''Metal Gear Solid'' gives us the NoFourthWall boss Psycho Mantis, who's easily the quirkiest of the QuirkyMinibossSquad. He wears a gas mask, although it's for a good reason: it keeps him from hearing the thoughts of everyone in the general vicinity, covers his badly scarred face which even ''he'' can't stand the sight of, and it's suggested late in the game that he was [[spoiler:unaffected by the [=FoxDIE=] virus thanks to the mask.]]
** The Tengu Commandos in ''Metal Gear Solid 2'' and the Haven Troopers in ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' wore full-body exoskeletons, with their helmets appearing to have some sort of filter. The filter is more prominent in the Haven Troopers, but it doesn't stop sleeping gas.

** The XOF troops in the beginning ''Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain'' are wearing gas masks with large oxygen tanks on their backs because they're storming a burning building.

* Army soldiers in ''VideoGame/GunsGoreAndCanolli'' all wear gas masks. It's justified (there is a ''lot'' of poison gas in this game), but most of their EnemyChatter is them [[RealityEnsues complaining about the drawbacks]].

Let us be brutally honest, though -- it looks either [[RuleOfCool damned cool]] or [[RuleOfScary damned scary]]. There's a reason [[Franchise/StarWars Vader's]] face looks like a stylized gas mask. May also show up as the Mask part of CoatHatMask, and more commonly as part of a MalevolentMaskedMan ensemble. See also HazmatSuit.
