* Victoria in ''New Moon'', the second ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' film, is very active as an antagonist but never says a word. It's zig-zagged, though: in a deleted scene, she reminisces about her dead mate to a pair of humans whom she's about to kill; if left in, that would have been the only scene in the film in which she spoke, and she speaks freely in both the first and third films. This is somewhat in keeping with the books, in which she is voiceless in the first, is an entirely offscreen menace in the second, and doesn't appear until the climax of the third in which she is SuddenlyVoiced.

** While Ganon is usually pretty chatty, his incarnations in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' have zero lines of dialogue.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Joker}}'', ComicBook/HarleyQuinn of all people is this. She does do some awesome stuff (and [[OfCorsetsSexy look]] [[{{Stripperiffic}} damn]] [[FetishFuel good]] doing it), though. This might just be because Harley's [[PerkyFemaleMinion usual characterisation]] wouldn't gel with the comic's atmosphere so well. It's implied she is capable of speech since she's shown opening her mouth in several panels as if mid word, but since the story is told from the point of view of a man named Johnny the implication is he's not paying attention to what she's saying.

* Subverted with Pica in ''Manga/OnePiece''. For about a dozen chapters or so after he was introduced, Pica never vocalized anything, not even screams or grunts. It also meant he would attack without [[CallingYourAttacks calling them out]], giving Zoro a difficult time. It turns out it was all a lead-up to a gag: [[spoiler:Pica's voice is actually very high pitched, in contrast to his enormous, thug-like appearance. People make fun of him and laugh at him due to his voice, so he just stays quiet--not for his own embarrassment, but to avoid unnecessary death and annihilation through him retaliating.]]

Gennai is the only aversion to this trope so far as he speaks while revealed to be the bad guy.

* Darth Maul in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' only has a couple of lines, and none in the presence of the heroes.
