The Faceless: Web Original

  • Drew Avery in lonelygirl15.
  • IGSRJ, a parody of The Angry Video Game Nerd and the Irate Gamer. Furthermore, IGSRJ speaks through a text-to-speech program, making his voice hidden too.
  • The Specter in Mega64.
  • Though his face is illustrated on the website, Mr. Plinkett's face is never seen in his reviews - only his hands, present in first person perspective.
  • Todd in the Shadows is either Face Framed in Shadow, filmed with his back at the camera, or masked.
    • His title card artist, Krin, also likes to mask herself in online appearances.
    • When the website made a video about a few of the reviewers' Real Life trip to Washington, D.C. to talk to a politician about SOPA, they just put a black box in front of his face, with a caption noting that he doesn't like his face to appear on the Internet.
  • The antagonist from Homestar Runner's Show Within a Show "Stinkoman 20X6". Rumored to be Coach Z's 20X6 counterpart.
    • Interestingly enough, Coach Z's only facial features are his eyes.
      • So are Pom Pom's.
  • The Chief from Agents Of Cracked is always lit from behind. Lampshaded in the first episode of the second series, when the Sarge points out that the Chief's office always has terrible lighting.
  • The full face of Mr. Administrator from Echo Chamber is never shown - he's only shown below the eyes.
    • Zack as well; he's usually behind the camera, filming everything. Although we do see his face briefly in episode 2. It's dark enough that most of the details aren't easily distinguishable.
  • Reyven Samoth in The Gungan Council, who probably doesn't even have a corporal face at this point. Darth Apparatus also used to run around with a mask or obscured face until recently.
  • Sp00nerism from The Creatures barely shows himself on camera and when he does, his face is hidden by a comedic horse head mask.
  • The Chronicles Of Syntax never clearly show The Lady's face. It's either out of the shot, covered, or too blurry/far away to be seen in detail.
  • J. Geil, in contrast to the original JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, is this in Vaguely Recalling JoJo
  • The Flying Man is always shown from too far away to make out his facial features... if he even has any.
  • Neil, the cameraman on A Couple of Cunts in the Countryside often chimes in on the discussions, but was not seen on camera until the 50th episode.
  • Some spoof film trailers made by Italian director Maccio Capatonda (real name Marcello Macchia) feature an entity named "the little" Riccardino Fuffolo, represented by a very tall man in a black trenchcoat and a white towel on his head. His face was partially visible during a parody of The Matrix's bullet time sequence, when the towel slipped and his chin and mouth were visible.
