** 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.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Headhunter", a killer android gets its head knocked off, [[CranialProcessingUnit with no apparent effect]] other than a tendency to start MilkingTheGiantCow.

* ''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.

** The Daleks are prone to this at times. At its best, the rocking is barely noticeable; at its worst, it makes them look rather incontinent. Similar to Cybermen, modern-era Daleks flash the lights on their armor to indicate it instead.

Broader version of the HeadBob. If the character only talks through body language, see HeWhoMustNotBeHeard or SilentBob.

SilentBob. If their mouth only appears when they are talking, they are blessed with SuddenAnatomy.

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' [[OffTheShelfVFX uses literal toys for most of its characters]], usually pasting animated mouths onto them. For characters with no clear place to put a mouth, they typically gesticulate in some way as they speak.
