* The Splicers from ''VideoGame/BioShock'' and ''VideoGame/BioShock2'' often wear Venetian masks. Possibly justified, as it's stated in Audio-Logs that everything really went to hell in Rapture on New Year's Day. It also helps cover up their ugly deformities from excessive plasmid use and abuse. ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' has the Columbian Soldiers and Vox Populi rebels. The Colmbian forces have three masks, for men it's a hood with glowing goggles while women have porcelain masks or metal mask in the shape of Lady Liberty with glowing eyes. Vox Populi wear simpler but no less creepy masks ranging from simple bandannas to porcelain masks and hoods with eyes that glow. The {{DLC}} ''Burial at Sea'' have the splicers, who wear papier-mâché masks, masks made out of mannequin faces, or the masks used at the New Year's Masquerade.

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends:''
** [[TheDividual Kindred]] consists of two individuals, both masked. [[TheStoic Lamb]] wears a full face mask in the shape of a wolf, making her appear completely emotionless to fit her personality. [[TheBrute Wolf,]] largely resembling an actual wolf, wears a half-mask which covers the upper part of his face, partially because his jaws extend far out from underneath and partially to emphasize his hunger and gluttony.
** [[TheSociopath Jhin]] wears ''two'' masks, with a plain black leather covering obscuring his entire body, and an ornately carved ivory mask on top of it. He acts as a covert assassin for a shadowy cabal, so it would make sense for him to hide his identity, and many of his voice lines reference his killings as being the only true way to express himself.

* Pretty much any member of the [[PowersThatBe System]] in the [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwhvgIW-YDw4_34VGA2mgQw Cave of Shadows]] universe. The fact that they [[StalkerWithoutACrush stalk]] and [[BringHimToMe kidnap]] a blogger just for talking about the organisation brings up their malevolent disposition. For a less threatening but still creepy example from the same universe, see [[NostalgicNarrator ns0mnby]].

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', masks are an important aspect of life for ghouls. They take numerous steps to conceal their identities when hunting or fighting, favoring hoodies or cloaks and custom-made personal masks. Gangs often adopt a theme for their outfits, with groups like the dog-masked ''Black Dobers'' and the [[MonsterClown Clowns]]. Masks not only help prevent [[TheHunter the CCG]] from discovering their faces, but help with intimidating others and establishing a reputation.
