* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': By the second season, all of the Crystal Gems (including [[PosthumousCharacter Rose]]), Greg, Connie, and Sadie have sung, but none of the Homeworld Gems (Lapis Lazuli, Peridot, and Jasper) have. The series sticks to Steven's point of view, where the musical numbers represent some sort of communication he's aware of, and all his encounters with the Homeworld gems tend to be too brief and [[KnightOfCerebus traumatic]] to have anyone expressing themselves so openly. Played with in "It Could've Been Great", where [[spoiler:Peridot singing indicates her bonding with the Crystal Gems... but later in the episode that she shows she ''still'' doesn't understand them or their goals.]]

* In the [[Film/TheJungleBook2016 2016 remake]] of Disney's ''[[Disney/TheJungleBook]]'', [[BigBad Shere Khan]] is the only one of the three antagonists (the other two being [[TheDon King Louie]] and [[WildCard Kaa]]) who hasn't his own song (the other two have "I Wanna Be Like You" and "Trust in Me" in respective order), cementing his KnightOfCerebus status.

* In the classic 1939 film ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', the Wicked Witch doesn't get to sing. It's worth noting, however, that her counterparts in ''TheWiz'' and ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' do have songs.

* In ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', VillainyFreeVillain Charlie Cowell doesn't get to sing any musical numbers (not counting his part in the "talk, talk, talk" number "Rock Island"), though neither does the BetaCouple of this show.



* While ''Theatre/ShowBoat'' doesn't really have a villain (not counting the character from the ShowWithinTheShow, who is [[MeanCharacterNiceActor quite affable offstage]]), the most antagonistic characters in the first act, Parthy, Pete and Sheriff Vallon, don't sing at all.
