* ''YuYuHakusho'''s Hiei tends towards this. Chuck Huber, his voice actor, told a humorous story in the commentary; he once watched an episode of the show with his family, and all Hiei said through the whole episode was "Hn."

* Wrestling/KanakoUrai, better known as Kana in Japan and Asuka in America rarely speaks and often resorts to a SlasherSmile to get her point across. Part of the reason why she does this (in Wrestling/NXT as least) is because she doesn't speak English all that well.

*** The story goes as such: An emissary from Philip of Macedon (father of [[AlexanderTheGreat this guy]]) goes to Sparta and reads a long speech: "If we enter your lands, then we shall impale your men, violate your women and slaughter your children, burn your granaries, and put all priests to the sword..." and so forth. The Spartan king doesn't say anything until the end, when he replies: "If."

* While not quiet per se, [[TheJuggernaut Maine]] of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' comes very close to this trope - mainly because he almost never makes noise, and when he does he sounds like a Franchise/{{Predator}}. So he remains nearly silent most of the time.
** Part of his silence is attributable to the fact that he was ''shot in the throat'' during the team's escape from Insurrectionists. [[spoiler:Carolina then feels sorry for Maine and gives up her AI to act as a mouthpiece.]]

Part of his silence this is attributable due to being shot in the fact throat during a mission (which we see in the prequel portions of Season 9) so he's actually physically incapable of speech, but it's established that even before that he was ''shot in the throat'' during the team's escape from Insurrectionists. [[spoiler:Carolina then feels sorry for Maine and gives up her AI to act as a mouthpiece.]]very rarely said anything.

* [[NobleWolf Zafila]] [=/=][[SpellMyNameWithAnS Zafira]] of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'': trainees in ''[=StrikerS=]'' didn't even realize that he ''could'' talk until their second mission.

** Bardiche. He talks less as much as Raising Heart (even less in the movies, while Raising Heart got even more lines). The Forwards lampshade that Bardiche is a really quiet Device. However, Teana thinks his silence is one of his greatest things of him. Doing things through action and not words, protecting his master as her weapon at all times.

He's not TheVoiceless. He's not an IneffectualLoner. He just rarely talks, so [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness anything he does say carries extra weight]]. In most instances, The Quiet One is physically imposing. He is either TheBigGuy or TheLancer and may also be a GentleGiant or GeniusBruiser.
