* In ''Series/ScarecrowAndMrsKing'', there was a character in the first season or two (later phased out) who drove around in a limo giving out orders/assignments. The name of the character was probably "Mr. Blue."

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* During his time in prison, the South African apartheid regime prevented any photographs of Nelson Mandela from being taken. Right up until he was released in 1990, the most recent pictures of him anyone had seen were from 1964. Most people, having only seen images of a middle-aged man, didn't recognise the elderly man in his 70s walking out of prison.

Added DiffLines:

** The Pirate King Atomsk is unseen until almost the very end. Even Amarao's earlier mental picture of him has his back to the audience [[spoiler:and Amarao is completely wrong about what he looks like anyway]].

* The Soldier in White from ''Catch-22''. A hospital patient so covered in bandages that no one knows anything about him. No one even realizes when he dies, until a nurse takes his temperature and he doesn't have one. One soldier speculates there's nothing under the bandages, he's just a hollow plaster shell.

* ''Samson en Gert'': This show has a lot of characters that are always talked about, but never seen: Bobientje, Marlèneke, Fred Kroket,...

* [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Dragon_City/ Dragon City]] has a parody of Batman named Batdragon. His face has never been shown in the comic. This is because the comic isn't about him. This allows the reader to see him as the main characters do and none of them know his real identity.

** Similar to the first example, VH1's ''[[ILoveTheExties I Love The 90s]]'' had a segment on [=MovieFone=], with the celebrities commenting that they had no idea what "Mr. [=MovieFone=]" looked like. They actually had the actor, Russ Leatherman, on the show.

** In his first interview after leaving the band in 1980, former Music/{{KISS}} drummer Peter Criss appeared with his back to the camera, apparently at the insistence of his former band mates. At the time, KISS had never appeared in public without their trademark stage makeup. Criss would reveal his face in a television appearance later that year. The band would abandon its makeup in 1983 in an "unmasking" on {{MTV}}.

* Played with in SomethingPositive. Mike's son is shown occasionally, but his FACE never is. He's supposedly grotesquely ugly, but you have to [[TakeOurWordForIt take the characters' words for it.]]
** This trope [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp01072013.shtml is then]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in TheReveal. We never see the kid's face as anything younger than a toddler, though.
