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:
- The Noh mask in an Inuyasha episode "The Flesh Eating Noh Mask".
- 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.
- The haunted mask from the Goosebumps series.
- Bionicle: the Ignika and Spectral Mask
- Super Mario Bros 2: Phanto, which pursue your character if you are holding a key.
- Aku-Aku and Uka-Uka in Crash Bandicoot. Though a variation exists that they make the player invincible when worn.
- The Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask: Near the end of the game, the titular mask discards the Skull Kid and begins floating around on its own.
