* The [[ColumbiaCartoons UPA]] adaptation of Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" never shows the face of the narrator. The ending of the cartoon is a shot from his POV... [[SanitySlippage through the window in the cell door of an insane asylum]].

* The original three ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' movies were very weird about this. All of the true faces of mask-wearing characters (all the Matoran, Toa, Turaga and Makuta) were kept a secret. Their heads were shown from all conceivable angles, bar from the front, so we got a vague idea of what they may look like, but the precise facial details were still a mystery. Interestingly, despite the director's apparent efforts, the entire head of [[BigBad Makuta]] ''was'' indeed visible through the electric flashes in the first movie, and it looked ''exactly'' like on his toy -- a regular Toa head (toy version) turned upside down... so, technically, he didn't even ''have'' a real face, unless you count the one on the top of his head, looking backwards...

** Parodied and/or homaged in both ''WesternAnimation/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.

** Koh the Face Stealer has this effect on anyone who meets him and he dosen't like; he takes their face and leaves them with just a blank space where their face was.

** 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.
