* ''[[{{Film/SherlockHolmes}} Sherlock Holmes]]'', throughout the first film Moriarty appears with his face in the shadows. In the sequel he appears this way only in the film's introduction, during which he reveals himself and stays revealed for the rest of the film.
* In the early JamesBond films, Spectre No. 1 AKA Ernst Stavro Blofeld, was shown from the neck down with a white persian cat, even to his own cohorts. As soon as he was revealed to Bond, he apparently dropped the aversion to revealing his face.

* Tarquin from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is on his way to zig-zagging this trope. He initially plays it straight by stopping to wear his helmet after [[spoiler:turning out to be Elan's father]] for no apparent reason. He then puts it back on just for a visit a the gladiatorial arena, apprently just so he can do TheUnmasking in front of other members of the main cast. Later, the need for a disguise makes him walk around wearing a helmet [[spoiler:and a mask under it should someone take else it off]] again.

* In ''MonsterHunterInternational,'' the helicopter pilot (nicknamed "Skippy") is rather pointedly covered by jumpsuit, goggles, and black balaclava for most of the novel. His wife is shown wearing a burqa-like garment. In the final quarter of the novel, it's revealed that Skippy and his tribe are [[spoiler: Orcs that MHI rescued from their native Kazakhstan a few years back]], who've been kept around because of their unique skills.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Garp, Franky and Sakazuki's faces were hidden by a dog mask, a festival mask and a cap respectively. Franky and Garp's masks are never seen again after their respective reveals, but Sakazuki subverts the trope as he ''still'' wears his cap even after a promotion and a timeskip.

* Similarly, Lord Ruber, the BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot'' sports a face-concealing, horned helmet for one scene, appearantly for the sole purpose of making a dramatic reveal to Juliana. He then tosses it away to one of his minions and never puts it on again, not even in situations where more protection might actually be called for, like when battling a dragon or invading Camelot.
