** 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.)

* In ''Manga/HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi'' the fight between Diego Carlo and Ma Kensei thoroughly parodies this trope. "Laughing Iron Fist" Diego has the fighting style of a luchador and so constantly wears a mask. During his fight with with Kensei he [[TurnsRed gets mad]] and rips off his mask to reveal another mask, that of the "Angry Iron Fist". When he is finally defeated by Kensei he takes off this mask in surrender, revealing that he is still wearing a domino mask underneath to protect his modesty. Kenichi's reaction at this point is along the lines of "... seriously?"
