* Storm Shadow rarely wears his ninja mask in both ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'' and [[Film/GIJoeRetaliation its sequel]]. Even when he does wear his mask at certain scenes, he'd take his time to take it off when facing Snake Eyes.

** ''Film/IronMan3'' has an unusual variation on this; [[spoiler:Tony spends most of the climax jumping in and out of several Iron Man suits, which the BigBad keeps destroying, or they keep falling apart.]]
** In both ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' and ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', we get a lot of scenes showing Bruce Banner (Creator/EricBana in the first film, Creator/EdwardNorton in the second) untransformed, while the Hulk himself has less screentime. Ditto for Creator/TimRoth's Emil Blonsky in ''The Incredible Hulk'', who looks like a normal human for most of the film and only transforms into the Abomination just before the final battle.

* The ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' film features Bruce Banner (Creator/EricBana) untransformed prominently.

** Averted in with Karl Urban in ''Film/{{Dredd}}'', the only time he is seen without his helmet is at the beginning of the film as he gets dressed for work and it's too dark to see his face at all.
* Billy Zane gets a lot of face time in ''Film/ThePhantom'', considering he's playing a character whose face is never shown clearly in the comics.

* This is a common theory for why none of the live-action Batman films (or the [[Series/{{Batman}} 60's show]]) have Batman and Robin wearing [[IrislessEyeMaskOfMystery masks with opaque white lenses]]. The look works fine in comics and cartoons where the ExpressiveMask trope is in full effect, but doesn't work in live action because it prevents the actors from conveying emotions with their eyes. Creator/LeVarBurton had similar complaints about his VISOR prop from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', for instance. ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' does have Batman wearing white lenses, but the scene is very brief and is basically just there as a MythologyGag.

He does however wear white lenses in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', but when he is in armoured form, thus his regular costume lacks of the white lenses like in the previous films.

* Both sequels to ''Film/TheSantaClause'' feature a plotline that turns fat, old, jolly Saint Nick back into Tim Allen.

to:

* Both sequels to ''Film/TheSantaClause'' feature a plotline that turns fat, old, jolly Saint Nick back into Tim Allen. This was at least partly because Tim Allen had an allergic reaction to the makeup used in the first movie and wanted to minimize the time spent in it in the sequels.

* In the video game ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Conviction'', Sam Fisher starts the game wearing a dressed-down ensemble and a standard gun, which is a far cry from the iconic infiltration suit getup he wore in the first three games. Over the course of ''Conviction'', though, he eventually reverts back to the original getup by obtaining several key pieces of equipment (including his signature gun and trademark goggles).

* In the ''Series/{{Batman}}'' television series from the sixties, AdamWest and Burt Ward spent most of the episodes in masks, albeit without white lenses like the masks from the comics. Considering the series was aimed mostly at children, this makes sense. It is however, played straight with Frank Gorshin who played the Riddler. Apparently, the Riddler mask was uncomfortable so Frank whipped it off every chance he had.
