* The G-Man from the ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' series is a variant of this, particularly in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}''. He speaks in semi-monotone but stresses the wrong words and pauses (and fails to pause) in all the wrong places. (ex. "Not that I wish to-imply that you have been... ''sleep''-ing on the-job")
** A version of this appears in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}''. Black Mesa's PA system is created via a sort of voice synthesizer that [[MadLibsDialogue assembles pre-existing voice files into phrases]]. This is initially used as a generic announcer, but it is later taken under control of the enemy soldiers and used to threaten the protagonist himself.

** Creator/SummerGlau is good at creepy in general. In ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'', [[RobotGirl Cameron]] regularly speaks in a constant, soft-yet-creepy monotone. However, the show also plays its ''absence'' to excellent effect. The absence of the creepy monotone we're used to is what made the scene where Cameron recites not only word for word, but inflection for inflection a "classmate's" emotional bathroom rant for the principal creepy.
** Similarly, in the second season premiere, the steady shift from Cameron's creepy monotone to her desperate, terrified pleas to John to a screaming declaration that she ''loves'' him while he's trying to take out her chip makes for a chillingly awesome scene.
*** In fact, whenever she's not speaking in her monotone voice tends to be even more unsettling, because it's so obvious to the audience that she's completely faking it.
** And in the episode "Allison From Palmdale", the use of the creepy monotone and its absence makes an already chilling episode that much creepier.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': After being heavily medicated with mood suppressors, Rei starts talking in such a monotonous, unfeeling voice that her friends were frightened and worried about her.

* A minor character in ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', an Iridorian, has one. Since the Iridorian is a BloodKnight who is motivated solely by the slaughter of his enemies, it makes him extremely unnerving for a character who appears only briefly and does nothing except stand in a bar and answer a couple of questions.

** The original ''SystemShock'' also had a generic voice announcer on Citadel Station that spoke in this manner, alongside SHODAN herself.
