* Switch from ''Manga/SketDance'' never speaks with his real voice. Instead, he uses a (very realistic) speech synthesizer, which he controls from the computer keyboard. Later his BackStory explains the tragic cause of this unwillingness to speak.

Whereas TheSpeechless doesn't talk because he/she is physically incapable of speech, this character ''can'' speak, but for some reason chooses not to, instead using sign language or other methods of communication. The reasons for this may vary: in most cases, it is either due to some sort of personal beliefs (like a religious vow of silence or a philosophical concept that "words are useless") or a psychological trauma. In some cases, they may only speak to a few selected individuals.

to:

* An Au Ra tribe in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' refuses to speak to anyone and even towards each other because they believe that words are lies and the truth comes from your facial and body language. Naturally, some [=NPCs=] find this confusing and frustrating to deal with.
