* The Wheelers in ''Film/ReturnToOz'' wear ''horrifying'' masks, and are Mombi's henchmen, trying to capture Dorothy in the film. That said, the novelization states they were enslaved by Mombi under threat of being turned to stone like the other denizens of Oz...not that they're any less terrifying because of it, though.

* In ''[[VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}} Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius]]'', the titular antagonist Veniczar Arcadius is a former revolutionary turned GalacticConqueror. He is never seen without an expressionless gold elf mask, and given his penchant for nuking cities from orbit, massacring civilians, [[ILied reneging on deals that would guarantee planets a measure of autonomy within his empire]], and [[EvilLaugh cackling maniacally while doing so]], [[CardCarryingVillain it’s safe to say he’s malevolent]]. Apart from intimidation, the mask’s purpose is threefold: [[spoiler:to hide the fact that he is not the original Arcadius but a successor; to hide the fact [[SamusIsAGirl “he” is really a woman]]; and to hide the fact that the current Arcadius is not an individual but rather a collective of genetically-enhanced clones with a HiveMind… all of whom just so happen to look like your ship’s Chief Engineer, [[TomatoInTheMirror to her shock and horror]]]].
