* In the ending of ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', there is a scene where the Master Chief takes off his helmet, but part of the ship obscures his head. If you move the camera so that you can get a good look, you can see that under his helmet is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mkiRQVkERg another helmet]].
* Having a helmet cover another helmet is actually very common in video games, since it takes a lot less effort for the art team to simply cut out a character's helmet for use as a prop and then hide their head with clever camera angles than it does to make a new model for the uncovered version of that character. Examples include Tali in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and Vanitas in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep''.

* One issue of ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' had the team playing Truth Or Dare, with Impulse daring Robin to take off his mask. He did... only to reveal that he had [[CrazyPrepared put on another mask, figuring that the game would come up]].

* ''ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel'': During the second Cobra civil war, having apparently defeated him, Serpentor forces Cobra Commander to remove his helmet, only to discover he is wearing a ski-mask underneath. Cobra Commander then detonates the explosives in the helmet so it explodes in Serpentor's hands.

** A few other Scooby-Doo villains often did this, sometimes wearing a latex mask of a different human under the monster or ghost disguise. In "The Haunted Candy Factory," Velma unmasks one of the "Green Globes" as Mr. Franklin, a watchman at the titular candy factory. But then Velma unmasks him ''again'' to reveal the true criminal. It's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] near the end, when the real Mr. Franklin is found, and Shaggy wonders if he is also an impostor as well.
** In "Never Ape an Ape Man," the titular villain (whom is, [[ScoobyDooHoax of course]], someone in an ape costume) slips on a rubber Scooby-Doo mask over his Ape Man mask to pull a MirrorRoutine with the real Scooby.
** In "The Exterminator," the actor [[Creator/LonChaney Lorne Chumley]], known as the "man of a million faces", is filming a new movie with his butler, and has assumed numerous disguises to keep people from the bank away while he prepares his comeback. When guest star Don Adams unmasks the "monster" Lorne is portraying, he initially tugs off various human masks (including a [[DisguisedInDrag woman mask]], but once he reveals Lorne's true face, he thinks it's also a mask and ends up [[NotAMask pulling on his scalp]].

* ComicBook/{{Paperinik|NewAdventures}} (a superhero alter-ego of [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Donald Duck]]) has to involuntarily do this in one story. At one point he decides to demonstrate ([[AsYouKnow for no reason and to no-one in particular]]) how his masks work, and too late realizes that he's out of the spray that would let him take the sticky mask off. Since the mask he is trying on is one of a caricatural alien, he is forced to wear a new mask on top of this one. (Later on, however, he manages to avoid having his secret identity exposed because he is wearing this additional mask.)
