In Noragami, some characters wear masks (e.g. Rabo).

Rabo's mask

I know what they are and everything, but I feel like I've seen something like it before, but I can't find anything online (Rabo's mask especially).

Are the masks completely fictional, or are they based off of anything?

    @JustPlain I'm not sure this is a dupe of that question. The OP has already mentioned that they "know what they are and everything", which I assume in-universally, but the question seems looking for out-of-universe explanation.

    On the other hand, it might be related to Noh masks, as explained on a possibly related question on different series (Natsume's Book of Friends), but I haven't researched further for Noragami.

  • @Aki Tanaka You might be right. While reading for the first time I thought OP was looking for the meaning of the mask but after reading your comment that is unlikely.
