* In the Season 5 finale of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' [[spoiler:[[BigBad Salem]] does this to [[DirtyCoward Professor Lionheart]] through her [[CrystalBall Seer]] [[EldritchAbomination Grimm]] after the [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere latter decides to flee Haven]] upon realizing Salem's side has lost against the heroes and returns to his office to gather things. It's so unnerving that he goes from trying to explain to begging for his life to trying to use his weapon on the Grimm...[[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands which knocks it out of his hand]] before it [[GoryDiscretionShot brutally murders him]] as he tries to flee. Salem only breaks the silence [[BondOneLiner to call him a coward]]]].

* In ''Literature/TheInheritanceCycle'', this is a standard Dwarven punishment to some of the more heinous crimes, and we get to see it happen to Vermund of Durgrimst Az Sweldn rak Anhuin as punishment for the attempted murder of Eragon. Put simply, the dwarves pretend the offending party isn't there at all. He can rant, rave, or in any other way attempt to scream at them, but they will simply act like he doesn't even exist, and quite literally, not even give him the time of day. And when Vermund physically grabs another dwarf, a couple of guards quite calmly wrench him off and toss him away, though the nonchalance of it is described as being no different than the guards helping straighten their protectorate's chain mail. But they don't do this just to Vermund but ''the entire clan'' as punishment for endorsing him, until they change leadership.[[note]]To put it in perspective, imagine if the United States of America just decided to pretend that Texas and everyone in it didn't exist, including not the slightest care for imports and exports, or other such problems. That's basically what the condemnation was for Durgrimst Az Sweldn rak Anhuin.[[/note]]

* Rather iconically used in ''Manga/KareKano'', where Yukino's classmates use it against her after she's revealed to not be TheAce. The ringleader is Maho, the local AlphaBitch. [[spoiler: Ironically, Maho is later [[HoistByHisOwnPetard subjected to it too]].]]

* One of the many bullying tactics that Nanako and Mariko from ''Manga/OniisamaE'' go through is this, including an iconic scene where the AlphaBitch and her GirlPosse begin interrupting Nanako when she's reading in class and saying "there's a bug in here!"

Want to ''really'' show your disapproval for someone? Just give them the dreaded silent treatment! While in some cases this may seem like a relief, this can be a very effective form of punishment and social isolation, especially if several people gang up to give one or more others the silent treatment. A common [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] nevertheless is that the person being subjected to the silent treatment is relieved that they no longer have to hear the other person speak.

This is a form of Emotional Abuse, especially by [[{{Narcissist}} narcissists]] and [[TheBully bullies.]]

* In the ''25th Anniversary Edition'' of ''VideoGame/NightTrap'', if you fail to save Danny in a DeletedScene, Lt. Simms briefly appears on the top-right corner of the CRT's screen and gives you the silent treatment as punishment by refusing to speak to you (he just has no words to describe your failure in causing the DeathOfAChild) before pulling a quick SCAT System Disconnect on you, resulting in a GameOver. (Probably {{Justified|Trope}}, as the filmmakers probably didn't film any scene where he chides you for failing to save Danny.)
