(Animation) Disappear/Fade Out in sections

Hello there! Is it possible for one object to disappear in sections without having to separate into each mesh? Or there is like an add-ons for this? If I add a transparency material to the object and insert keyframes on it, the whole object disappears.

Let’s take for example, the Suzanne object. I want to animate it by disappearing from top to bottom, so from its head first down to its mouth/chin and not as a whole object.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Heya, you can play with the texture coordinate and a couple of math to get a black and white gradient going from top to bottom.
