|The name or term "Mask" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Mask (disambiguation).|
Masks are the specialized weapons of M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M.. Developed by Project Spectrum, each Mask has a unique power and grant their wearer special abilities. The names of each Mask also serves as their wearer’s personal codename.

- The prototype Masks seen in the M.A.S.K.: Revolution one-shot have the same designs as their 1985 M.A.S.K. counterparts.
- Some of the Masks received new names or powers differing from the 1985 versions:
- Brad Turner’s "Eclipse" is actually based on his original "Hocus-Pocus" Mask, borrowing the name "Eclipse" from a different Mask worn by Turner.
- Julio Lopez’s "Gulliver" is visually based on his traditional "Streamer" Mask, but has the name and power of the "Gulliver" mask originally worn by Calhoun Burns.
- Vanessa Warfield’s "Ice Queen" is visually based on her original "Whip" mask, but with a new name and power.
- Bruno Sheppard’s "Thunderflame" was originally called "Magna-Beam," and now has the power of Cliff Dagger's "Torch" Mask.
- Miles Mayhem's Mask was first identified by name in M.A.S.K. #3 as "Python" the name of one of Mayhem's alternate Masks from the original series, but later referred to as "Viper" in issue #5, which it is visually based on. It doesn't help that the Mask has the powers of both Viper's and Python's powers from the 1985 series.
- Cliff Dagger's Mask has not yet been named on-panel. For wiki purposes, we've decided call it by its original designation.
