I thought the Dalek creatures fitted this trope for the first few years of Dr Who (I remember playground speculation at the time)
Added DiffLines:
* In ''Series/Doctor Who'', the creatures inside the Daleks fitted this trope for the first few years of the show's run, with only the occasional (and often contradictory) hint as to their true nature. A hand was seen in the first story, a 'time-destructed' octopus in the fourth, and so on. This added considerably to their menace.

* The Dancing Giant ghost in ''HauntedJunction'' is only seen from the knee down, and generally only one leg at a time. He's that big.

* An odd example occurred in the final season of ''StaticShock''. The Comicbook/TeenTitans were mentioned, which was intended as a nod to the team's then-upcoming [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans TV debut]]. However, PaulDini was unaware of the fact that ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' was NOT part of the {{DCAU}}, and thus the crossover that was alluded to never took place.

**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.

Added DiffLines:
* [[LetsPlay/ChaoticMonki Cryaotic]]'s adamant refusal to ever show his face is one of his defining characteristics. Fans always depict him wearing a mask of his mascot, "Sup Guy".

Added DiffLines:
* LetsPlay/ZoeyProasheck was this for a long time due to her intense anxiety and privacy fears, and was famously the only main member of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} to never appear on camera. However, since 2014, she has been doing all she can to subvert this, initially posting some pictures on Twitter and moving on to scattershot livestream appearances. Eventually, during the 2015 holiday streams, she appeared on the main channel to sing karaoke live with her girlfriend and hosted a stream that included both extended camera segments and a permanent facecam as a donation reward.

* ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' parodied this one -- the (human) parents of the title characters didn't exist above their waist. This was only shown twice: in the pilot, and in an episode of ''IAmWeasel'' (its spinoff), "Who Rubbed Out Cow and Chicken?" However, their shadows turned up too, and photos of them were of their upside-down legs.

** Not really. They probably just don't want to have someone playing her onscreen and it obviously not being her. Hence why in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS25E3SilverNemesis Silver Nemesis]] she's played by a lookalike shot from far away. (They'd originally wanted [[BritishRoyalFamily Prince Edward]] to play himself, but he graciously declined.)

* [[UsefulNotes/{{Islam}} Muhammad]]. Muslims have repeatedly threatened violence and murder when Muhammad is pictured in any way. ** It's worth noting that this wasn't always the case. [[http://www.religionfacts.com/islam/things/depictions-of-muhammad-in-islamic-art.htm This page]] is a good starting point for understanding this. *** It's still a matter of contest among different branches of Muslim faith. Until only a few years ago pictures of Mohammed were perfectly common in many Islamic countries.
