One way to indicate a Mask of Power is having it float. Sometimes, it means that the mask itself is sentient.

Note: That doesn't include masks which float with other items due to Selective Gravity.

Examples of Floating Mask include:

Anime and Manga

  • The Noh mask in an Inuyasha episode "The Flesh Eating Noh Mask".

Comic Books

  • The Helmet Of Nabu, which gives Doctor Fate his powers.


  • The voodoo masks in The Princess and the Frog, which represent The Friends On The Other Side.
  • The masks representing the ancestral kings of Atlantis in Atlantis the Lost Empire float and spin around the crystal that gives Atlantis its life.
    • Also, at the end of the film, a new mask, representing the now deceased King Kashekim Nedakh is actually constructed by his daughter and son-in-law upon becoming the new rulers of Atlantis, which then floats away into the sky to join the other masks representing the dead kings of Atlantis.
    • And for some reason, the queens never get floating masks.



  • Bionicle: the Ignika and Spectral Mask

Video Games

Western Animation

  • Tarakudo, the Big Bad of Season 4 of Jackie Chan Adventures.
  • An episode of Aladdin was actually about Princess Jasmine buying an evil floating mask at a bazaar.
  • One episode of The Simpsons was about Homer and Ned building a Bible-themed amusement park, with their main attraction being a floating mask representing Ned's late wife Maude. Unfortunately, it turns out that the mask is kept afloat by a leaking gas pipe, and their amusement park is shut down for that reason.
