* The Art/SistineChapel's altar painting only depicts {{God}}'s lower torso and feet. While it's standard practice to avoid showing the full form of God [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm for the viewer's sanity]], this is an odd choice since several full-body paintings of God, face and all, lie on the ceiling above the altar.

There are several reasons for writing a faceless character, depending on their role in the plot. For a recurring character, hiding their face lends an air of ambiguity to the character and their motives[[SecretOrganizationCravingIntelligentEnigmaticTropersYonder .]] If said character is a villain, often of the DiabolicalMastermind variety, this additionally serves to make them seem more threatening.

Non-recurring faceless characters tend to be either Cannon Fodder FacelessGoons (whose facelessness removes their individuality, their humanity, and -- [[MoralDissonance hopefully]] -- the audience's squeamishness about their deaths), or an InvisiblePresident (whose face is hidden to prevent the episode from being dated by the next election).

May involve being NeverBareheaded. For other parts of the body, see SceneryCensor. If you don't see ''anything'' at all from a villain, watch your step; you're up against an UltimateEvil. For ''literally'' faceless characters see TheBlank. ScaryShinyGlasses is related. The hidden-by-shadow version combined with ChekhovsGunman results in SinisterSilhouettes. If a character never appears ''at all'', they're TheGhost. Sometimes there may be scenes teasing the unmasking, but it often ends up with UnrevealAngle. Unrelated to FacelessMasses, which is more for the [[LazyArtist artist's convenience]] than anything.
