* As the text quote says, the GagDub of ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicVoyage''.
* The Russian adaptation of ''Literature/TheJungleBook'' suffered from this when imported to the US, ruining several sequences (the Red Dogs, Kaa hypnotizing the monkeys) that were effective precisely because the action was mostly silent.
** For that matter, compare the adventures of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEJSFPaHZTU Scamper the Penguin]] with the original Russian [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5aD4FDl9xQ Lolo the Penguin]] - the dubbed characters insistence on narrating every self-evident bit of action will soon drive you insane.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife''. It has pretty visuals and unique designs, but it's also a loud, obnoxious piece that doesn't shut up for a second.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'': The Japanese dub adds tons of yelling and screaming.
* The infamous ''WesternAnimation/FelixTheCatTheMovie'' falls victim to this trope to the extreme.
* An odd and small inversion happens in some dubs of ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' (e.g. the European Portuguese and Spanish dubs). Near the beginning, young Ramses lets out a small "Mommy", but since he's obscured by his mother walking in front of him, these dubs leave him mute.
* Every musical number in ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot'', of which all but one are intended to be quite serious and dramatic, is packed to the brim with {{Funny Background Event}}s which are extremely loud and ''not'' content to stay in the background.
* The British-made 2005 film of ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicRoundabout'' included several well-done scenes with a silent moose. ''Doogal'', the film's rather inexplicable American dub, among many other bizarre decisions, gave the moose an InternalMonologue (provided by Creator/KevinSmith [[WTHCasting of all people]]) and also gave it [[ToiletHumor a case of the "walking farts"]].

* Video game LetsPlay videos often have the author commenting on the game as they play. Whether this is helpful advice for the watchers, bouts of trivia about the game or series at hand, or filling the whole video with useless banter, varies from player to player.

* The Italian dub of ''WesternAnimation/TazMania'' not only turns Taz from being TheUnintelligible to speaking in HulkSpeak, but in the episode "Taz and the Pterodactyl" they gave a voice to the Pterodactyl, adding to what originally was the story of Taz becoming friend with a Pterodactyl a new subplot about the prehistoric creature being [[SheIsAManInJapan a mommy Pterodactyl who decides to adopt Taz as her new son]].

** Taken to an extreme in [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xbocrb_winx-club-comparisons-cold-spell_shortfilms this video]], in which all the previously silent nightmares of the ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' have had plenty of dialog added to them.
** ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' also provides a case of this trope being a plot point: In a 2nd season episode, Musa notices a girl walking past her, and she realizes that it's Darcy in disguise. In the original, she walks past silently, but in the dub, Darcy says "Gag me" in response to their dancing, and her voice tips Musa off (and most likely the intended viewership, too, as she doesn't disguise her voice at all). (It's at the 1:00 mark in [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x37rql_winx-club-comparisons-party-crasher_fun this video]].)



*** It also features an extensive reworking of JoeHisaishi's original score (provided by the composer himself) for full orchestra, partially to make it more accessible to audiences uncomfortable with lengthy periods of silence in a movie. However, both Miyazaki and Hisaishi approved the new score. In fact, Hisaishi actually composed the new score himself.

* Several dubs to ''Anime/SonicX'' have a [[BrokenBase very controversial]] example of voicing over mute scenes. In episode 52, one scene has Amy crying over how she was scared that Sonic wouldn't ever come back and sobbing how she would wait for him forever. Sonic's reply is deliberately mute in the original and even Amy's crying is silent afterwards. The English dub changes it so Sonic says "Don't you worry Amy. I never will [abandon you]" and has Amy's crying as audible . The French dub scene takes this up a level and has Sonic outright saying "Of course I love you Amy--forever".



* ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'': The English script adds [[TotallyRadical way cool dialogue]] in the place of grunts and silence.

* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' is [[MemeticMutation well-known]] for its constant barrage of CaptainObvious comments the characters spout (to no one in particular) in each level. This trope has to be the reason.
