* [[spoiler: Bill Cipher]] undergoes this in Chapter Seventeen of ''Fanfic/ATriangleInTheStars'' after Steven asks him an ArmorPiercingQuestion, mostly because he wasn't expecting Steven to stick around long enough to ask. It's temporary though, but he describes it as a computer going BSOD.

* This is the plot of the E. L. Konigsburg book ''Silent to the Bone.'' The character who's silenced is accused of dropping his little sister and nearly killing her. However, this seems out-of-character for him, and his best friend tries to work with him to make him speak again. [[spoiler: In fact, it was a negligent nanny. However, I believe the boy had a crush on her, so he kept silent.]]

* Autistic individuals sometimes have this happen to them as a reaction to being overwhelmed, experiencing [[SensoryOverload sensory overload,]] or facing extreme stress, as well as other reasons; although in this case it would be called going nonverbal.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', Lulu is so distraught over the theft of the eggs she laid that she is largely unable to speak or sing. Due to her being the lead singer of the Indigo-Gos, this required the band to cancel their scheduled performances. Summoning the Turtle with the New Wave Bossa Nova is enough to snap her out of it.
