Masks (マスク, masuku) are worn by ghouls to prevent their identities as "Human" from being discovered by the CCG. Several masks bear a symbolic attachment or representation to their owner. They heavily influence the alias of some ghouls filed under by the CCG.

Masks[edit | edit source]
|Ken Kaneki/Haise Sasaki||Eyepatch||Kaneki's mask was designed by Uta. It was modeled after Kaneki's situation, becoming an artificial one-eyed ghoul. As Uta explained, only the left eye was exposed was because he wanted to see the world that was hidden beneath the medical eye-patch Kaneki wore, as he was unable to control his kakugan from manifesting at that time. Kaneki's transformation into a one-eyed ghoul reflects on the apparent Frankenstein motif of his mask.
The mask is mainly made out of leather and covers most of Kaneki's face with the exception of his left eye and hair.
The mask has "artificial" teeth and exposed gums on it to make it look more realistic. The mask also has a zipper to increase its efficiency; to prey on meals and consume them while protecting Kaneki's identity without the need to remove it.
|Touka Kirishima||Rabbit||The mask of Touka is a cartoon rabbit covering all her face (except for her hair), which then gives her the alias Rabbit. The rabbit's head is white and it has two long ears with pink highlights.|
|Ayato Kirishima||Black Rabbit||
Ayato possesses multiple black masks. The first one has red eyes and a sharp-toothed grin, which he used during the Aogiri Arc. His current and most frequently-seen mask bears a rabbit design, earning him the moniker of "Black Rabbit." During the auction, he wore a very basic, vaguely conical mask which covered only the lower half of his face.
In the anime, Ayato is mostly seen wearing a black mask with spires, as well as a black overcoat with a white fur collar.
