* Partially invoked during the first few arcs of ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan'': Yorick disguises himself with a gas mask and poncho, since his main aim is to disguise his male figure and features, rather than look intimidating or cool.
* Dr. Kroenen from ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}''. He is seen wearing a long coat as part of his Nazi uniform once or twice, but eventually trades it in for a significantly less awesome apron.

** It should be noted that ''both'' are based on real world militaries from the same nation but of different eras. The Death Korps is intended to resemble World War 1 German infantry, whereas the Steel Legion bears more of a resemblance to the later Wermacht uniforms. Interesting fact: the original Death Korps models were just Steel Legionaires painted with skulls on their masks. Now only the Grenadiers and Quartermasters wear skulls.

* More primitive versions can be found in the PlagueDoctor (Wikipedia articles on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plague_doctor the profession]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plague_doctor_costume the costume]]), who were employed during the Black Plague. The plague doctor's mask possessed glass eyepieces, and the nose was filled with herbs to ward away 'bad air', which was one of the believed causes of the plague at the time. The doctor then wore long thick outer garments to protect them from their surroundings, and carried a cane to interact with things without directly touching them (think that claw thingy the trashman carries). Although there was very little the doctors could actually do for their patients besides taking note of the infected and instigating quarantines, they were paid relatively handsomely for the risk involved in their jobs. [[note]]it's now theorized that those long coats, with all their folds and fibers, might actually have made great hiding places for the disease carrying fleas which actually spread the plague.[[/note]]
* [[http://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/-/world/18893944/mysterious-figure-photographed-in-woodland/ The Loyon]], an unidentified person spotted wandering in a Swiss forest, regularly seen for a decade. He wears a gasmask and sometimes a long camoufled coat. Although the previous link can look like a hoax (it is actually quite exaggerated), the Loyon (gender unknown) really exists (look [[http://www.lematin.ch/faits-divers/Le-Loyon-ne-fait-rire-personne/story/25650014 here]] for an article - in French - from an actual Swiss newspaper).
