* Towards the end of the first season of ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'', Bojack confronts Diane after [[spoiler: The book she had written about him portrayed him as a selfish, immature jerk]] at a public Q&A for writers. He asks if there any hope that he can be better person. Diane is unable to respond to such a desperate, nakedly emotional appeal and just sits there silently.

* James Corbett encountered someone like this when he was assigned to hunt down a maneating tiger by TheRaj. She was a woman who tried unsuccessfully to save her sister from a tiger, and ended up witnessing her sister's death before being chased by the tiger herself. Her family told Corbett she had not spoken since the attack, which took place a year before Corbett met her. She began speaking again after Corbett killed the tiger and showed her its skin, although Corbett himself was skeptical that this was the only factor in her recovery.

* Kisa from ''FruitsBasket'' goes mute from being bullied at school and ignored by her only friend (and love interest).
* Koji Nanjou in {{Zetsuai 1989}} goes mute after he's in a nearly fatal motorcycle accident. He's in a coma for a while and does come out of it, but when he wakes up he can't talk. This is a problem because he's a singer by profession.

* Played for humor in OnePiece; when the Strawhat Crew's bounties are updated after Enies Lobby, Sanji is so upset with the picture on his (they couldn't get a photo, so it ends up as a {{Gonk}} version of him) that he stops speaking intelligibly for a while.

* In the very first episode of ''FistOfTheNorthStar,'' Lin was like this due to seeing her parents get murdered right in front of her by bandits (most likely Zeed's men). Kenshiro cures her of this using one of the healing techniques of the Hokuto Shinken.

* The hybrids which control the Cylon ships in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' appear to (at least some extent) show this phenomenon. One of the original Cylon models (Leobin aka 2) theorizes that their seemingly nonsensical rambling is actually highly complex and coded prophecy. Later, Baltar and Diana (and later still Baltar and Rosalin) interpret a random statement about 3 seeing 5 as Diana (model 3) seeing the final five. Eventually, this is proven true.
