Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''Literature/HoratioHornblower''. Hornblower, though shy, is inclined to be chatty to the point he doesn't trust himself to allow himself ''any'' unnecessary conversation with his officers. Instead he maintains a strict reserve and generally confines his remarks to an ambiguous "[[CatchPhrase Ha, h'm]]," which certainly gives him the reputation for hating small talk.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ShiningForce: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon'' added some mild characterization by allowing you to get to know your Force members by speaking to them in headquarters. Zylo the werewolf absolutely ''abhors'' this, though, and every conversation with him is either VisibleSilence or him (re)stating that his favorite color is black.

Added DiffLines:

* Kilgrave in ''Series/JessicaJones2015''. He looks like he'd rather pass a kidney stone than try to have a conversation without [[MindRape his powers.]] "It spoils you."

** In ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', Tuvok once remarked that "Vulcans do not make small talk." However, under orders, he does briefly make small talk with a hologram of LeonardoDaVinci.

* In ''Literature/{{Blindsight}}'' an alien civilization cannot comprehend the concept of communication that isn't intended to transmit useful data, [[spoiler: technically they're not even sentient, and they assume sentience is a disease and attempt to "contain" it.]]

--->'''Riker:''' I have to admit, it has a sort of strange fascination. How long can two people talk about ''nothing?''

* [[TheStoic Captain Holt]] and [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Rosa Diaz]] in ''Series/BrooklyNineNine'' (and in Rosa's case, it's not just small talk but revealing any details about her life whatsoever).

-->'''Rosa:''' We only have to fill eight minutes.\\
'''Holt:''' Sure, but think about it as 480 seconds and you'll see why I'm concerned.\\
'''Rosa:''' Oh, my God.

* One of the reasons the characters Hettar and Eriond get along well in ''Literature/TheBelgaraid'' is their mutual lack of need to fill gaps of silence while travelling together with random conversation. They don't hate small talk per se but neither see the point of it.
