* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvXxwUiZ3yQ This is how Apocalypse sounds]] when he informs Professor X, "I'm here for you, Charles." The voice is quite chilling, and it forebodes that Xavier will soon be in ''really deep trouble''.

When she starts talking in such like this again after a monotonous, unfeeling voice long stretch of being more emotionally demonstrative than usual, Shinji and Asuka immediately realize that her friends were frightened and worried about her.something is very wrong.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Kululu, who gets inexplicably high pitched when he gets particularly excited about something (usually terrible or destructive), which actually makes him even creepier.
** There's also the Keronian resonance ritual, which acts as a bonding ritual of caramaderie between fellow countrymen far from home, but to anyone else [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T_CVXG0iyA it sounds like a satanic cult initiation...]]

Added DiffLines:

* In the Japanese dub of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', Gray Fox aka the Cyborg Ninja speaks like this. In fact, [[Creator/KanetoShiozawa his voice actor]] was notorious for using this trope to great effect.

* Not all languages have the same range of inflection, resulting in speakers of a language with a lower range, when learning a new language with a bigger range (for example Dutch speakers learning English), tend to sound monotome.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Rei's voice is this. Her monotone voice ennervates Shinji because it reminds him of the death of the former Rei.

* 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.
