* The Big Bad of the fifth part of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Diavolo, is this trope embodied, to the point where he uses the name 'the Boss' and is absolutely obsessed with remaining unseen. This trope is basically what the character is based around.

Turns out that if no one knows what you look like, anyone can impersonate you...]]

* In ''Literature/BridgeOfBirds'', nobody communicates with the current Duke of Qin except through his assistant, a timid little man called the Key Rabbit, who serves as an intermediary and holds the keys, as the name suggests. [[spoiler:This is because he is in fact UsefulNotes/QinShihuangdi himself, having become immortal, and apparently less recognizable than the portraits would suggest.]]

* In ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'', Mr. Grizz in the Salmon Run mode is portrayed as just a bear statue with an antenna on it, as we never get to see who is ''really'' speaking through said statue.

* In the ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' trilogy, no one has ever seen the BigBad living GodOfEvil Jupiter, not even the rats who worship him. He can see things anywhere through an extension of himself in [[FortuneTeller Madame Akkikuyu's]] CrystalBall.
