** You can just barely see hints of Tali's face through her helmet.. but they're so vague that they do little more than establish that it has a human-like configuration.

** You can just barely see hints of Tali's face through her helmet.. but they're so vague that they do little more than establish that it has a human-like configuration. It's possible to see a photo of her with her mask off in the third game if she's romanced, and she looks [[spoiler: like a normal human with white irises, although her limbs and hands are quite different]].

** The Daleks (pictured above), though their suits aren't so much suits as little tanks in which utterly feeble bodies reside. In the Seventh Doctor's words, they're not so much little green men as "little green blobs in bonded polycarbide armor."

This varies with the story; in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E2IntoTheDalek Into the Dalek]]'' the suit was a fully-integrated cybernetic system that artificially manipulated the organic part to prevent it turning against it's programming, but ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E2TheWitchsFamiliar The Witch's Familiar]]'' a season later made it such a simple mechanical device that a human pilot could climb in and drive it around.

* The aliens from ''Film/IndependenceDay''. The suit itself is explained as being some kind of organic technology and indeed the helmet portion looks like it's a solid external skull. This makes it retrospectively more badass that WillSmith's character knocked one out with one punch.

* The Andromedons from ''VideoGame/{{XCOM 2}}'' wear encounter suits to maintain the weapons-grade acidic environment they need to survive in.

* The Vorlons from ''Series/BabylonFive'', who not only need a completely alien atmosphere but also have their own reasons for wanting to hide their true appearance. Comes complete with NeglectfulPrecursor behaviour.
** They don't actually need that atmosphere, they just use it to discourage visitors.
*** In the series finale humans become like this too, though they don't need to; they probably took a lesson from the Vorlons about the advantages of standing around being cryptic when dealing with younger races.
** The Gaim from the same series wear encounter suits that resemble humanoids in gas masks. Underneath, they are insectoid and [[TakeOurWordForIt apparently]] far from humanoid. The suit serves both as environmental protection and a translator/speaker unit, as the Gaim are incapable of vocalizing most species' languages.

* The Unggoy (aka Grunts) from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' are a partial example. They tend to wear no clothes and only partial armor, but they're always seen with [[GasMaskMooks breathing apparatuses]] on their faces and large tanks on their backs, as they can only breath methane and have to carry it with them much like divers and astronauts.

* The Unggoy (aka Grunts) from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. They are most often seen with [[GasMaskMooks masks on]], large tanks on their backs. (They breathe methane on their home planet, and carry it with them much like divers and astronauts.) Some higher-ranking Grunts may also have other armor on in addition to the methane tank, or the tank and mask may look different (as with the Heretic Grunts.)
