* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' it goes with the territory with the territory of everyone wearing fishbowl helmets. There's a good chance that if your face isn't visible, you're just a FacelessGoons and you should probably change professions.

A variation, seen in the few science-fiction media that make some attempt at scientific accuracy, is to avoid the lights, but also omit [[OneWayVisor the highly reflective metallic coating applied to the visors of real spacesuits.]] (It should be noted, though, that the reflective visors on real spacesuits are often retracted when not looking the direction of the Sun; [[http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/images/station/crew-14/hires/iss014e09795.jpg case in point]].) Such scenes would often require contrived lighting. Then again, "[[LightingTropes contrived lighting]]" has been a staple of filmmaking for ages.

*Averted in Literature/TheMartian. It's mentioned when Watney is gonna get his picture taken that his face wouldn't be visible through his helmet. Played straight in [[Film/TheMartian the movie]], though.

* ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'' does this a little oddly; the astronauts on the 1969 Moon landing have their iconic reflective visors at first, but while examining the crashed Ark up close, actually slide them up into their helmets to reveal secondary transparent visors with face-illuminating lights. The sliding visors (not the lights) are a feature on modern spacesuits, as noted above.

* Avoided in Peter Hamilton's ''Literature/NightsDawnTrilogy'', in which the spacesuits don't even ''have'' helmets. The spacesuits are a nondescript black silicon film that completely covers the user from a device worn around the neck. All sensors used for "seeing" the environment are contained in said device and they interface directly with implants in the user's brain. With the suits that ''do'' have helmets, the point is made that no-one can see into the suit to tell who it is inside - although that is from a distance.
