* Fire Lord Ozai from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' isn't shown for the first two seasons. Most of the time he was a shadow behind a curtain or too far to be seen in details, or only his back or legs are shown.

* Fire Lord Ozai from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' isn't shown for the first two seasons. Most of the time he was a shadow behind a curtain or too far to be seen in details, or only his back or legs are shown. When he finally does show up, he appears as a surprisingly handsome man. Subsequent appearances are used to demonstrate that, appearances aside, he is as monstrous and evil as they come.

* Peggy's mother in ''Series/MarriedWithChildren''. She is implied to be ''amazingly'' obese, so perhaps the idea is that the camera couldn't have fit her in?

* [[UsefulNotes/{{Islam}} Muhammad]]. Muslims have repeatedly threatened violence and murder when Muhammad is pictured in any way. This was not always the case [[note]] [[http://www.religionfacts.com/islam/things/depictions-of-muhammad-in-islamic-art.htm This page]] is a good starting point for understanding this[[/note]] and it's still a matter of contest among various Muslim sects. Until around the turn of the millenium, pictures of Muhammed were common in many Islamic countries.
** This trope applies equally to anyone considered a prophet in Islam-- thus, movies about figures considered prophets like Jesus(Isa) or Moses(Musa) are often banned in Islamic countries.

* Any StrawmanPolitical ideal. An Unnamed Democrat/Republican for example -- a very popular choice in the polls for any election, because he/she ''has no opinions'', and therefore has no ''unpopular'' opinions.



* Basically anyone on the internet falls into this trope. By using a variety of names, avatars, and other information, no one is truly who they appear to be and their true selves are never revealed unless that person chooses to do so.

* Until the end of WorldWarTwo, the Japanese Emperor was this to a certain extent. For most common Japanese citizens, they had to avert their eyes when the Emperor passed by, and even the High Command gave their reports to the Emperor with him screened from view. This did not preclude his being filmed and photographed, however.
