* The Brainwash Patrol from Anarcute are possibly the [[AdorableEvilMinions cutest]] version of this trope ever.

** 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.

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Hoodwinked}} Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs. Evil]]'', the resident Gas Mask Mooks are none other than Three Little Pigs reimagined as bazooka-toting mercenaries.

** The Combine Overwatch soldiers and Civil Protection officers in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', as demonstrated above. Apparently, an early version of the script had City 17's air unbreathable, so that everyone wore gas masks. This was dropped, but the Combine gas masks weren't. It should also be pointed out that Overwatch soldiers required the mask to include their vocoder, due to their vocal cords being ripped out [[spoiler:(visible when you see the topless Overwatch model in Nova Prospekt)]], and Civil Protection officers would need them for anonymity, due to being rather brutal to citizens. The Gas Masks actually work against them at times. Using the "'bug bait" on a normal person gets no reaction, but using it on a Civil Protection Officer or an Overwatch Soldier causes them to flail about, apparently choking. That might just be because they're FriendlyFireProof.

* In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37r2XHm4cIo&list=PL9fGHMcRLx6gU9ZLieogw3HJTU9C53HAA Ben McYellow]] series of videos, the Point-Five Legion of {{Mooks}} all wear gas masks and black ''t-shirts''. This may have less to do with offering protection and more to do with the fact that the face-covering masks help expand the illusion of numbers for a cast that consists of [[NoBudget four actors.]]

* ''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.
