** Inverted with Ordinator (Indoril) helmets from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''. These display an emotionless FrozenFace. Played straight, however, with Almalexia's war mask, and with the Daedric helmets.
*** The ''VideoGame/TamrielRebuilt'' GameMod (which seeks to expand ''Morrowind'' by adding the rest of the province of Morrowind) indicates that there are specialized Ordinator groups whose helmets are altered to show other emotions. The ones who have shown up thus far are the Ordinators in Mourning, the guards for the necropolis of Necrom, whose helmets are designed to look like Nerevar (supplementary materials back around ''Morrowind'' said that the Ordinator helmet was based on Nerevar's face) crying.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'''s Dwarven Helmets exhibit this, with the faceplate of the mask crafted to look like a perpetually furious Dwemer (unless your character is female, in which case it's smiling). And again with the Daedric Helmets...
** The Wolf Armour helmet has a cheek-guard shaped to resemble a wolf's jawbone.
** The Carved Nordic Armour introduced with the ''Dragonborn DLC'', has a helm shaped like a bear.

* Soviet gas masks often were colored white and had small eye windows, making them look eerily like skulls. Since they conceal nearly all of the face, this adds to the UncannyValley effect, making designs like the [[http://www.soviet-power.com/pictures/pbfblack.jpg PBF]], and the [[http://www.soviet-power.com/pictures/GasMaskNew.jpg PMG]], look rather imposing, but the [[https://41.media.tumblr.com/06a8fc30d921d04f7e6444665622b141/tumblr_n66nhcT8Fi1qct6ago1_500.jpg PMK]] comes closest to the trope, but the [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/taongglabas/IMGP1092.jpg GP-5]] is definitely the scariest. Because of three key facts, which are that it is much easier and economical to make gas masks with small windows, that modern combat seldom takes place at close range, and form follows function, it is highly unlikely that the masks were designed intentionally to be intimidating.
