->''"Some hundreds of years may have passed. I don't know. [[AIIsACrapshoot AM]] has been having fun for some time, accelerating and retarding my time sense. He made certain I would suffer eternally and could not do myself in. He left my mind intact. I can dream, I can wonder, I can lament. Outwardly: dumbly, I shamble about, a thing that could never have been known as human, a thing whose shape is so alien a travesty that humanity becomes more obscene for the vague resemblance.

Y'know, it's kinda important to mention "I have no mouth, and I must scream" has the TROPE NAMER title in the page quote...

Uunnecessarily restrictive; a cursory glance through one subpage shows several instances where eyes don't even enter the situation. The rest of the description is sufficient.
A character suffers from an extremely horrifying FateWorseThanDeath. [[MercyKill Suicide]] is not an option; even death never comes to free him from it. He is immobilized or otherwise contained, unable to communicate with anyone, [[CanOnlyMoveTheEyes unable to even move the eyes]], and unlikely to be removed from this situation -- not even by death -- anytime in the foreseeable future. As the name of the Trope suggests, he can't even scream in anguish, even though he would if he could.

Generally used two ways, either for horror, or as a way to defeat immortal villains.

Usually, when this arises, it is eternal unless he's freed by outside forces, but a "mere" years-long or centuries-long fate is possible. For instance, a robot with a 100-year battery life, buried underground. In fact, this is a very common sci-fi trope involving artificial intelligences who are potentially immortal due to being made of software. Unfortunately, if a victim ''is'' rescued, he may well have been driven insane from the experience. (Some of the listed examples show exactly that.)
