** Red Hood, a hero from the MirrorUniverse, is only seen with his mask or FaceFramedInShadow. However, we get enough hints for even non-comic fans to probably realize that he's the GoodCounterpart of [[spoiler:TheJoker]].

* Doctor Claw from the animated ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' (who wasn't just faceless, he was mostly bodiless; only his arms and hands were ever shown). This was later ruined by a toy that ''did'' show his face and body (and utterly destroyed his coolness factor by presenting him as [[https://sp1.yimg.com/ib/th?id=HN.608021958979096377&pid=15.1&P=0 a skinny white-haired man with a twisted-lip sneer]]), and also to a somewhat lesser extent by a Super Nintendo game that showed half his face in the final battle (where he was at least given glowing eyes). The toy went out of its way to play it up, too. The packaging specifically covered his face with a sign, informing potential buyers that they would have to buy the package to see what he looked like.

* [[http://smurfs.wikia.com/wiki/Nemesis Nemesis]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' was a formerly human wizard turned into a grotesque creature by way of a magic accident. He wore a cloaked hood to hide his disfigured features, only removing it to scare his opponents. He was always shown from the back in his un-hooded state.

** Parodied and/or homaged in both ''TheRenAndStimpyShow'' by Mr. and Mrs. Pipe, and in ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken'' with the titular character's parents. In the latter even their ''shadows'' end at about the waist up.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', [[NaziNobleman Baron Zemo]] never removes his mask during any of his appearances (and he's one of the show's most commonly recurring villains). Considering that we get a flashback that showed him getting infected by a biological weapon that [[HoistByHisOwnPetard he himself designed]], which had the effect of apparently causing his face to ''melt''[[note]]though even in the flashback, we don't actually get a good look at him - at that point he wore a mask that looked more like a Klansman's hood, which was dissolved during aforementioned face-melting, to be eventually replaced by the skintight mask he wears during the main series[[/note]], there's probably a ''very'' good reason that mask stays on.

* Subverted on ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''. The first episode with Numbuh One's father involves his father's face being obscured from view quite blatantly; midway through the episode, though, it's suddenly seen. Several of the other character's parents were TheFaceless at first, but later were shown, though some of the parents still haven't been seen. During season 6, the mysterious kid from the KND Splinter Cell was only shown as a shadow. In the Finale, it was revealed that he was in fact [[spoiler: [[http://knd.wikia.com/wiki/Numbuh_74.239 Numbuh 74.239]], and that the splinter cell was just a cover for the Galactic KND.]]

** Eventually the comics gave Cobra Commander one as well, not nearly as cheesy as the movie's version. He just looked kind of like [[spoiler:Che Guevara]].

** The Gameboy Advance version of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'' video game uses this trope on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMp4MVz4faA# David Hasslehoff in the cutscenes]] (see10:32 in video).

* [[MsFanservice Miss Bellum]] on ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. Her full name is in fact Sara Bellum, homophonic to cerebellum, a tongue-in-cheek reference to the fact that her head is never displayed. And also a reference to the fact that she's really the brains at the Mayor's office. She gets a partial reveal in the 10th anniversary episode. *** According to WordOfGod, the reason for not showing her face is because they never show her best feature.
