* ''DogCity'' had an episode about a "masked vandal". When that vandal is caught, the mask is pulled off to reveal Miss Kitty, but Ace realizes it can't be her because she's never caught. He then proceeds to pull off another mask, revealing Baron von Rottweiler, then his henchman, then more people, and ultimately [[spoiler:Eliot Shag]].

Added DiffLines:

* Manga/{{Kinnikuman}} takes this Up To Eleven in his match against Warsman: Warsman keeps trying to unmask him, but he has a mask under a mask under a mask ad nauseam.


Added DiffLines:

* Comicbook/{{Sandman}}. During a nightmare, one character is confronted with Dorothy from the ''Wizard Of Oz'' movie, who pulls her mask off to reveal the Wicked Witch, then that mask off to reveal another mask...
* GIJOE: During the second Cobra civil war, having apparently defeated him, Serpentor forced Cobra Commander to remove his helmet, only to discover he was wearing a ski-mask underneath. Cobra Commander then detonated the explosives in the helmet so it exploded in Serpentor's hands.


Added DiffLines:

In the GrandFinale of ''Series/ThePrisoner'' Number Six takes off Number One's mask, revealing a gorilla mask. Six takes that off to reveal...himself?

* BIONICLE: in Legends of Metru Nui, Makuta Teridax, who mainly wears the Kraahlix, mask of shadows, wears Dume's Kiril upon his mask while disguising as the Turaga.[[/folder]]


Added DiffLines:

* An example featuring Cool Shades - one piece of concept art for Proto Man from Mega Man has Proto Man holding his helmet, which has shades attached as a visor... and he's wearing another pair of shades. So either this trope is in effect, or he wears shades under his shades.

** Done quite literally in ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'' with the Phantom, an international assassin who can perfectly mimic anyone. He wears [[LatexPerfection mask upon mask]] to the point that he's forgotten his own identity. His list of fake identities include [[spoiler: Detective Bobby Fulbright, when you initially catch him, as well as every other culprit in the game, several witnesses and defendants, Prosecutor Blackquill, and most disturbingly, ''Phoenix Wright himself!'']]

* From ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' we have [[spoiler:Beatrice, who not only has several different versions of her from different arcs and different time periods (her mother and grandmother also had the name Beatrice) but is also the same person as Shannon and Kanon. And to top that off, the three of them are just idealized personas created by Yasu.]] Flowcharts have been made in order to explain it.
