* ''StarTrek'' guest stars who aren't used to playing RubberForeheadAliens can do this (because it feels like you're wearing a full-face mask). Check out the Vidiians in the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Phage" for an example.

* Most Traditional puppets (without a moving mouth) bob up and down when they talk; for specific example, Kukla of Kukla, Fran and Ollie (Fran was a human and Ollie had a moving mouth).

* Movies made with Microsoft's ''[[VideoGame/ThreeDMovieMaker 3D Movie Maker]]'' had all characters doing this, since the technology wasn't good enough in 1995 to allow lip syncing. Much MilkingTheGiantCow action ensues.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E7TheWheelInSpace The Wheel In Space]]", the Cybermen indicate they are speaking by rocking their entire upper bodies back and forth. Their air of menace rather suffers as a result. Modern-era Cybermen lean more towards flashing lights in their mouths.

** The human characters in the show also utilise this trope, but UpToEleven. Nearly ''all'' of the recurring human cast were {{Large Ham}}s, with the notable exception of the museum owner. ''Brum'''s SignatureStyle was presenting the characters as [[TheVoiceless mute]] while the narrator would say the dialogue, like reading a storybook aloud. Therefore it was imperative that the characters be as hammy as possible.

* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' has this. The only way the characters are indicated talking is by shaking the clip-arts around, sometimes to exaggerated effects. With the exception of the Emperor, of course, who can't move at all since he's a skeleton. (Instead, his speech is hinted by his eyepiece glowing.) As of season 2, some characters have their artwork articulated to let them gesticulate to various degrees. For example Magnus the Red can only move his right arm, his left seemingly frozen in place, while Kaldor Draigo (the Supreme Grand Master of the Grey Knights) is able to swing his arms freely, able to cover his face with his shield. Little Kitten is relegated to bobbing back and forth to simulate talking.
