* Also seen in the UsefulNotes/{{Walmart}} "Rollback Man" commercial from 2003-2004, which parodies all the old action/spy tropes as a parody of "Secret Agent Man" plays in the background, when a female Wal-Mart employee disguises herself with a rubber Smiley Face mask (a CGI effect.)

* ''{{Film/Fantomas}}'' did it back in 1964, being probably one of the oldest examples.

* ''{{Film/Fantomas}}'' did it back in 1964, being probably one of the oldest examples.live-action examples. It consisted of the titular MasterOfDisguise villain always wearing a bald, bluish latex mask to conceal his true identity. He would often wear ''other'' latex masks over it when committing crimes. At other times he would peel of his bluish latex mask to reveal his new impersonation (then later on remove that one to reveal his bluish mask again...)

** In the new series ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Slitheen use actual dead people to form complete body suits in this fashion.
*** One wonders whether this was borrowed from the Warwolves, in Marvel Comics' Excalibur, who did the same thing.
** In the serial ''City of Death'', the main villain has a head which is a mass of tentacles with a single eye in the center. Despite this, a latex mask enables him to perfectly appear as a human being complete with eyes, tongue, facial expressions, etc. Bonus points for the villain's real head being bigger than his head when masked as a human.

** Similarly, the 2003 movie ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction'' had an animated Granny unzip her body suit during the jungle scene (via a CGI effect) to reveal the evil live-action ACME Chairman (played by SteveMartin). Similarly, Tweety unzips in his cage as well, revealing the Tasmanian Devil (who breaks out of the cage doing his spinning/babbling routine), and Sylvester unzips as well, to reveal the Chairman's assistant Mr. Smith, who then unzips his own body suit to reveal an animated female Tasmanian Devil!

* Found in ''ComicBook/RicHochet'' where more than one perpetrator wore a mask with a face identical to the victim. In one instance, she even had manly-gloves.

* This is a pretty common Trope that many an artist of Superhero comics use when drawing their heroes/villains/vigilantes that have masks, especially full-face ones and ''especially'' the kind that inexplicably show the wearer's moving mouths. Even a character who's hair is inches thick or goes down to their collarbone or that have thick facial hair will appear bald and clean-shaven when wearing these kinds of masks, and when they remove it, [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished their hair is none the worse for being compressed under a sweaty mask for however long]] (assuming they've even been shown to have broken a sweat). This Trope often extends to the rest of their costumes, too, to the point where one sometimes wonders how they even get in or out of said costume. In essence, when these characters go out as their alter egos, they literally ''become them''.

This is the number one tool of the MasterOfDisguise. It's not seen nearly as often in modern TV, but it still lurks about and surfaces every now and then. The ''Film/{{Darkman}}'' movies, for example, and the opening of the first ''Series/CharliesAngels'' film.
