* ''{{CSI NY}}'' "Unspoken", as its name implies, goes for half the episode with no dialogue, just Music/GreenDay music.
* A variation in "Uprising", a second season episode of Series/SwitchedAtBirth: All of the episode's dialogue is in SignLanguage. The episode eases the audience into it: The first scene's dialogue is signed and spoken. The second scene is only signed, but keeps the ambient noise of the actors' movement and breathing. After that, the soundtrack goes entirely silent except for incidental music, until the final line of dialogue in the very last scene:

* FantasticFour #288 by Creator/JonathanHickman and Nick Dragotta demonstrated the grief and fallout of [[spoiler: the death of Johnny Storm]] by having the issue be entirely silent. Notable sequences include Ben Grimm taking out his rage on Donald Blak and the Hulk (who dutifully take it), Sue silently grieving, Reed formulating a plan to retrieve the body, and a truly heartbreaking funeral.

* One ''SinCity'' short story titled, appropriately enough, "Silent Night". There's just one line spoken at the end.

* The ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'' series ''Bob Byrne's Twisted Tales'' is a series of one-off strips, all of which have no dialogue at all. Byrne, the artist, came up with the idea when he got annoyed by letterers sticking speech bubbles all over his art.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' uses the partial variation in the episode "Bowser Junior's Nerf War!", where most of the first half (mainly when the Nerf guns are shot) is this[[note]]We are treated to ominous music as a replacement for the dialogue[[/note]]. The rest of the episode has dialogue, though.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', "Pipe Down": A few minutes in, Timmy wishes for the town to be silent, thus pushing the episode into this category until the end, where he has to wish for sound to return so that he can make a wish to stop [[ItMakesSenseInContext a meteor in collision course with the Earth]].

* The ''AngryBeavers'' episode "Silent But Deadly" has the beavers stuck in their house surrounded by sleeping wolverines. The entire episode is largely silent (except with music) due to the brothers attempting to escape without waking the predators up. A pseudovariation occured in a later episode in which the brothers had a competition to not talk. (They solved this by carting around giant tape players with tapes that had words on them so they could communicate. Yes, it's '''that''' kind of show.)

* One bizarre retroactive application of this trope is with regards to silent movies. With the coming of DVD, it has become common for old silent film shorts, especially those that have fallen into public domain, to appear on budget-line VHS and DVD compilations. Especially with regards to "series" such as Charlie Chaplin and Laurel & Hardy films, it's common to see these referenced on these releases as "episodes".
