* In the ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed'' episode "The Heir up There", Sylth Vester explains to Dangerous Duck that he wears his helmet to hide disfigurements he's suffered from the Royal Tweetums causing his head to get stuck in a black hole. We don't see his face when he takes the helmet off, but judging by Duck's reaction, the scarring isn't pretty.

When you see someone who wears a [[NiceHat hat]], helmet, or other [[Creator/MitchHedberg cranium accessory]] all the time, eventually you're gonna wonder why. Then you finally see them sans headwear... and you realize that there's a very good reason. Maybe they have terminal hat hair. Maybe it's just a stupid hairstyle under there. Maybe their hair is [[CompressedHair very very expansive]] when not contained by the hat (regardless of how big the hat in question is). Or maybe [[BreadEggsMilkSquick their scalp is deformed or horribly scarred]].

* Early in ''Videogame/{{XCOM 2}}'s'' campaign, we get a good look at why the ADVENT soldiers and officers wear big, face-concealing helmets. It turns out that they only vaguely look human underneath their helmets, with enlarged eyes, catlike noses, and tiny ears, which would naturally undermine ADVENT's attempt to present their soldiers as human-like peacekeepers.

* In ''WesternAnimtion/AdventureTime'', the reason [[PostHumousCharacter Joshua]] wears a hat all the time is to hide the scar he got from [[spoiler: [[MrSeahorse giving birth to Jake]].]]



* In the finale of the 2006 revival of ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'', this is shown to happen to Vinnie's old girlfriend Harley, who reveals that she has [[FaceHeelTurn sided with the Nomad Rats]] because she was horribly scarred during the Plutarkian invasion and thought that the Biker Mice abandoned her. She now hides her disfigurement by wearing a purple mask. While we never see her scars, the flashbacks that appear during her VillainSong do depict her covering her face with her hands as well as her face being bandaged prior to getting her mask.



* In the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Friends Without Benefits", it is shown that reason Meg wears a hat is because her heart is located in her head. It's not a [[BodyHorror pretty sight]]. [[RuleOfFunny Even though she's been seen without a hat plenty of times.]]
** In a different episode, Quagmire said he would like to see Meg without her hat on. He starts to pull her hat off, but a green hand reaches from under Meg's hair to pull the hat back down.
** Death also keeps his hood up because underneath it he has a rotting, unmoving skull.



* It is revealed in the ''WesternAnimation/RoadRovers'' episode "Dawn of the Groomer" that the series' main villain General Parvo wears his metallic helmet to conceal [[spoiler:cat ears.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Pranks and Greens", Bart makes friends with the school's former resident prankster. When he takes his hat off, revealing a bald head with a small tuft of hair in the front, Bart tells him to keep it on.
** In one gag, one of the [[TheBully bullies]] Jimbo was revealed to be bald when his hat was knocked off.

* The Literature/FatherBrown story ''The Purple Wig'' revolves around this. A duke is famous for a purple wig, which he claims is to hide the hideously deformed ear that is the mark of shame for his family's crimes. Father Brown points out that, if he really wanted to hide the thing, he would wear a wig of an actual hair color and wouldn't go around telling his shame to everyone he met. [[spoiler: It turns out that what he's really hiding is a scar identifying him as the servant who murdered the real duke.]]
