* The ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' incarnation of Shockwave also very rarely emotes.emotes, which fits into his [[TortureTechnician occupation]] quite well. Even on the rare occasions he's angry it barely rises above the monotone, which combined with his [[TheBlank face]] just makes him even ''creepier''.

Added DiffLines:

* NominalHero [[ColdSniper Zer0]] in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' speaks with very little emotion. He's probably the least "human" of the six Vault Hunters - even [[AxCrazy Krieg]] has desires beyond simply killing stuff (even if he's [[TalkativeLoon really bad]] at ''expressing'' them), but [=Zer0=] is motivated solely by murdering people, and getting money to buy more effective tools for murdering people.

* The evil townspeople of "Nilbog" also do this in ''Film/{{Troll 2}}'' while trying to force the protagonist to eat a poisoned bowl of ice cream and, in the process, prove that even a creepy synchronized monotone can turn into hilarious {{narm}} (or maybe even disturbing FetishFuel) with the right line:

* Peter Baelish from ''Series/GameOfThrones'' always speaks in a smarmy, wry half-whisper. Not too creepy and even somewhat [[AffablyEvil affable]] when he simply converses with his peers, but he uses the same tone when describing [[FateWorseThanDeath the things he did]] to poor women [[YouHaveFailedMe who displeased him]], or telling a helpless girl, that she's [[FalseReassurance totally safe]] [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty with him]].

*** Data spends most of "Masks" being a LargeHam after a number of alien personalities take over his body. Before Data or anyone else understands what is happening to him, he calmly asks [=LaForge=] a chilling question in a haunting monotone:
--->'''Data''': Geordi, what does it feel like when a person is losing his mind?
