** Discworld's Death, being a traditionally-minded AnthropomorphicPersonification, wears the classic Grim Reaper outfit, a black robe with a hood. So does Death of Rats (at rat size, naturally).

*''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'': Aguilar's outfit includes a hood per the franchise's Assassins' tradition. What's more, the Brotherhood's symbol is embroidered on it.



* Lampshaded in the ''{{Literature/Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', in which the antagonist notes that running through dark and rainy streets with a hood and cloak is the surest way to ''attract'' attention and quietly orders a subordinate killed for his incompetence.

* ''[[Literature/TheNightsDawnTrilogy Night's Dawn]]''. Quinn Dexter adopts this trope deliberately to awe his Satanist followers and enemies, using his powers as the Possessed to make the hood [[EvilIsNotWellLit particularly dark]]. The reader can tell he's lost his temper whenever his face makes a sudden reappearance.

** The Avatar in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Awakening]]'' wears a cloak and hood in cutscenes. This is to give the Avatar a general appearance since you can customize the Avatar.

** ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate Jacob Frye]]'' preferred a NiceHat which is more appropriate for a man in London, unless he was in stealth mode. Then he pulls the hood up.

This can be a JustifiedTrope if in a WretchedHive or BadGuyBar, where this is a perfectly acceptable fashion accessory.

* Altaïr from ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI Assassin's Creed]]'', as shown in the title picture.
** Interestingly, [[JustifiedTrope having a hood on one's traveling robe in the medieval Holy Land wasn't actually that uncommon.]] The shade helped keep your head cool if you needed to walk a long distance. And it also matches the local scholars' robes perfectly, making it easy to blend in.
** Ezio Auditore da Firenze, the protagonist [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII of the second game]], has a similar hood. Actually his outfit's amazingly similar to Altaïr's, just updated to fit with 15th century Italian aesthetics. Amusingly, in that era and setting, a hood like that is very conspicuous compared to the [[NiceHat large hats]] almost everybody else is wearing, so it's most likely out of tradition.
** [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Snake]] later appears in an identical hood as a ShoutOut. He was in the Middle East at [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsofthePatriots the time.]]
** Averted with Altaïr and Ezio's modern-day descendant Desmond Miles, who wears a hoodie but has yet to be seen with the hood up. Although presumably he may later as he now has all of Ezio's skills. It should also be noted that said hoodie is white, [[GenerationXerox just like traditional Assassin costumes from the past.]]
** It turns out that the hood is slightly ''pointed'', just like his ancestors' "eagle beak" hoods.
** Desmond finally puts his hood up in ''VideoGame/{{Assassins Creed III}}'', when he [[spoiler: goes to the skyscraper and the stadium for the artefacts that will let him enter the Temple, and the Abstergo building he was held in in the first game to rescue his father.]]

*** Almost all the assassins you meet along the way also have hoods. The one exception is [[spoiler:James Kid/Mary Read]], who talks a lot more and whose ability with disguise is more important to the plot.

*** Kairi also has a hood she never wears (from ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII KHII]]'' to present), but it's not as noticeable as long as you forget that it's the only black part of her otherwise completely [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]]-and-[[WomanInWhite white]] outfit.

* A lot of people in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', especially Organization XIII. Justified in that the cloaks most of the hoods belong to are designed to protect the wearer from unwelcome darkness, and the Organization (and most other characters who wear those cloaks) deal with a lot of that stuff.



* Princess Zelda wears a hooded cloak for the majority of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''. Subverted in that it only conceals her identity for about 2 minutes, before she herself reveals herself to Link.

* Weavers in ''VideoGame/{{Loom}}'' wear hoods that completely conceal their face except for their glowing eyes. (They look like Jawas; since it's a LucasArts game, this may be a ShoutOut.) An in-universe myth says that it's fatal to look beneath a Weaver's hood; Cobb can't resist testing it out when he meets the main character. [[spoiler: It's true.]]
