Anime: Kekko Kamen
No-one has seen her face, everyone has seen her body. Kekko Kamen is a superheroine who apparently refused to wear the skin-tight bodystocking so it was removed from her uniform. She fights injustice, mostly focusing on rescuing students from insane disciplinarians.

The series and live-action films provide examples of:

The manga provides examples of:

  • Affectionate Parody: Kekko, her arch nemisis, Satan's Toenail, and every Villain of the Week are send-ups of popular Japanese manga and TV characters.
  • Collective Identity: In the last chapter of the manga, Kekko Kamen is revealed to be six sisters who have been among the students and teachers, taking the role in shifts to avoid suspicion. This all culminates in a final battle with the Big Bad and his minions, in which all six sisters assume the mantle of the heroine at the same time and take them down.
  • Costume Copycat: In one chapter, Kekko Kamen is framed by a naked masked woman (un)dressed like her who committs a robbery, and this leads the heroine to confront the woman to clear her name.
  • Defeat by Modesty: The topless, jungle woman villainess Mako Makimura was defeated in this way after Kekko Kamen pulled off her loincloth, making her cover her privates. Then she was quite easy for the naked heroine to beat.
  • Delinquents: Kei Kurenai
  • Identity Impersonator: Mayumi tried to imitate Kekko Kamen after the twins who were thought to have been the naked heroine were captured. It didn't go too well, and she was unmasked and tortured as well until the real Kekko Kamen came to rescue all of them.
  • The Lad-ette: Keiko Natsuwata, the short haired, masculine, P.E. teacher who knows all about martial arts and doesn't mind using them on people who try to hurt her or her students. She was actually thought to be Kekko Kamen for this reason.
  • Remember the New Guy: One late issue had a girl described as Mayumi's best friend, despite not having previously appeared in the manga, being assisted by Kekko and Mayumi in escaping the oppresive school when she learns that her mother is ill with heart disease.
  • Sadist Teacher: The teachers of the Sparta Academy are particularly nasty examples of this, such as literally torturing students if they get anything below a 90 on their test's grade!
  • School Nurse: Kaori Wakatsuki
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Koichi Omote
  • The Unreveal: At the end of the last chapter, the Kekko sisters confront a defeated Satan's Toenail and rip his mask off, revealing... that his face looks exactly like his mask.
