Masks worn by samurai warriors were simply to look scary as far as i know. A combination of the mask and the headdress with horns and stuff would have been a most intimidating sight if it was running straight at you! But other masks may have been used in plays (mainly noh theatre) and other drama. I don't know too much about Japanese masks but i know that in Indonesia masks with small eyes and sharp noses are heroes and good guys, where as masks with big eyes and round noses are evil villains. It is different in Japan; the larger the eyes, the more trustworthy the character.

Masks were an integral part of ancient Greek tragedy, and possibly comedy as well. Half-masks were used in the Commedia dell'arte's improvised performances, the character was thought to be inherent in the mask. Japanese Noh plays use very intricate masks that appear to change expression when he angle of the head changes. Though they are not masks, elaborate make-up in Kabuki and Bejing Opera serves a similar purpose.
