* The little monkey in ''Film/{{Babe}}: Pig in the City''. Comes off as particularly cute because he's the only animal who doesn't talk.

* Helen, TheProtagonist of ''The Spiral Staircase'' is mute and this is a plot point. There's a SerialKiller on the loose who targets disabled women. Thus the inability to speak is combined with DamselInDistress appeal.

Added DiffLines:

* Akira Oono of ''Manga/HighScoreGirl'' is an odd variation. While she is never shown talking on-panel, she's [[ShrinkingViolet incredibly shy]] to the point that she would rather prefer to communicate with IdiotHero Haruo Yaguchi via her actions in video games or through ''[[ComedicSociopathy wanton violence]]''. Thankfully for her, not only is Haruo MadeOfIron, he also finds her expressions easy to read most of the time [[spoiler: except in cases wherein his [[ObliviousToLove obliviousness to romance]] is in full effect]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime,'' Bumblebee takes after his movieverse counterpart. However, while movie Bumblebee speaks in canned sound clips from TV, radio, etc., Prime Bumblebee speaks in electronic sounds in a manner similar to [[Franchise/StarWars R2-D2]] (or perhaps [[TransformersArmada a Mini-con]].) The [[TheSmartGuy genius 12-year-old]] can understand him.

* Misa in ''VisualNovel/{{Sickness}}'' fits this trope to a T in certain more light-hearted scenes...until you remember the body count associated with her name.

Lack of speaking alone does not qualify a character for this trope. Someone who can't speak but otherwise doesn't fit the trope is TheSpeechless. Someone who can speak but is never shown to do so onscreen is TheVoiceless.

TheVoiceless. Also compare with SpeechImpededLoveInterest.

Added DiffLines:

* [[WebComic/{{Homestuck}} Dave Strider]] is depicted as this early on in ''FanFic/{{Brainbent}}''. He ''can'' speak, but [[ElectiveMute he chooses not to]] because his situation has left him somewhat despondent. He starts getting better a little bit later.

* ''Film/AFunnyThingHappenedOnTheWayToTheForum'' has Gymnasia, a beautiful and quick-witted slave from the Island of Silent Women. (She's pretty handy with weapons, too.) Pseudolus knows her sign language because his childhood nanny was a Silent Woman.
