** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'': Arclight isn't much of a talker, while Multiple-Man has a total of TWO lines.
** Colossus has only one line in ''The Last Stand'', despite his larger role compared to previous appearances. Though he has an even larger role in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', he somehow has even ''less'' dialogue, speaking only a single word the entire film.
** Though Colossus ''finally'' averts this trope in ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'', Angel Dust plays it straight, letting Ajax do most of the talking for the bad guys.

** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'': Arclight isn't much ''Film/XMen1'': The Brotherhood members almost never speak. Mystique is silent but for one line early on, except when she's disguised. It's quite effective and adds to her, well, mystique. Sabretooth has two lines, Toad has three.
** ''Film/X2XMenUnited'': Lady Deathstrike gets a single line

** Darth Maul from ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' has only three lines during the whole movie. He speaks so infrequently that all of his lines are dubbed over.

** Darth Maul from ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' has only three lines during the whole movie. He speaks so infrequently that all of his lines are dubbed over. His later appearances in the ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' and ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' animated series avert this, as he is given more lines in those series.



* In a mix between this and TheVoiceless, as her name suggests, [[ColdSniper Quiet]] from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV'' is not only a less talkative character, but is in fact entirely mute capable of only a few subtle noises due to the parasites infecting her. Besides being rather unpredictable at first, Quiet eventually shows her softer side even if she is a former enemy.

The reason why she is on this page is that [[spoiler: the player finds out later that she can speak other languages, particularly Navajo, she prefers not to speak in English because it would activate her vocal cord parasites.]]

* Kamimura from ''BrokenSaints'', apart from his internal monologues, is not the most talkative guy around. Of course, his limited knowledge of English, the language spoken to and around him for most of the series, could be part of that.

* Technically all of the ice-characters in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', but Kopeke especially. Since he got appointed to be the official Chronicler, it's likely that he's more wordy in his writing. Onua, an Earth Earth character, is also known to only speak up when necessary in most of his appearances.

* John Entwistle, bassist for TheWho, would later claim the title of "the quiet one" for himself - while his bandmates would flail wildly about the stage and destroy their instruments, he stood still as a statue, single-mindedly playing his bass, and rarely opening his mouth. He would eventually write a song called "The Quiet One" about himself.

* Doc Saito from ''Anime/ TigerAndBunny'' speaks very softly. So softly in fact, that he requires subtitles for the viewers to understand him. [[spoiler:Unless he's on the intercom or using a speaker, in which case he's [[NoIndoorVoice ear-screechingly loud]].]]

* Brian Slade from ''Film/VelvetGoldmine'', despite being the main character and basically the ''subject'' of the movie, has surprisingly sparse dialogue throughout. When he does talk, he's almost always talking in riddles or quoting OscarWilde. Also Jack Fairy, who doesn't say a word until the Death of Glitter concert.

* ''Literature/SecondApocalypse'': Lord Kosoter, aka "Ironsoul," is the captain of the Skin Eaters band of [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent sranc]]-scalpers. Achamian quickly identifies him as one of those sort who begrudge every word. When Achamian tries to negotiate with him, Kosoter's sergeant Sarl pointedly speaks for him. Whenever Kosoter interjects in any circumstance, there's a palpable moment of panic from his men.
