* In ''VideoGame/FairyFencerF'', Ryushin, a fairy with a robot-like appearance and mannerisms, really doesn't see the point of talking unless he has important information to relate and is slow to warm up to [[spoiler:Eryn's attempts to get him to talk in the Vile God route in the ''Advent Dark Force'' remake.]]

* Dragon planeswalker and part-time BigBad Nicol Bolas from ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' finds banter irritating. Since Bolas's typical ways of expressing said irritation start at "broken ribs" and move up to "complete destruction of your entire family line" it's probably best not to try his patience.

** Averted, however, with Iron Bull in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', despite him also being Qunari - possibly because he's a spy/secret policeman, rather than a soldier. Far from the taciturn and [[TheStoic stoic]] Sten or the Arishok, Bull would talk under wet cement, leading to him being an endless font of party banter.

* Situation gets very interesting if you visit old traditional country villages, in which you may find out people talking about what you perceived as a small talk topic seriously. This is relatively common in case of ''weather'', very important in relation to crop growing.

* ''Literature/AFrozenHeart'': In this tie-in novel to ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', [[spoiler:Prince Hans' father, the King of the Southern Isles, has no patience for idle banter and oftentimes got annoyed at Hans' attempts to make conversation with him, rebuking Hans for not "getting straight to the point" any time he deemed his youngest son had overstayed too long in his presence and ordering him to get out. It's justified as the king has more important things to focus on than Hans' attempts at pointlessly talking about his brothers bullying him, coldly dismissing him as nothing more than a whiner and a nuisance who aimlessly rants about his twelve older brothers all the time.]]

* ''Literature/AFrozenHeart'': In this tie-in novel to ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', [[spoiler:Prince Hans' father, the King of the Southern Isles, has no patience for idle banter, so he always rebuked Hans for not "getting straight to the point" any time he deemed his youngest son had overstayed too long in his presence and ordered him to get out, as he often got annoyed at Hans' attempts to make conversation with him. It's justified as the king has more important things to focus on than Hans' attempts at talking about his brothers bullying him, coldly dismissing him as nothing more than a whiner and a nuisance. On the other hand, Hans' father deliberately chose to ignore him because he saw Hans as an ineffectual coward for not fighting back at the taunts his twelve older brothers throw at him and thinking the abuse would make him stronger, aside from being [[EvenEvilHasStandards opposed to his father's use of violence towards their subjects]] and his high but extremely harsh expectations. To him, any of the thirteen sons who displays a soft side is weak-minded, so he encourages his other sons to bully the weakling so he'll whip him in line with his expectations and [[TykeBomb forcibly indoctrinate them in the idea that]] [[TheSocialDarwinist only the fittest survive in this dog-eat-dog world]] [[TykeBomb from a young age]].]]
