* Sasuke, [[AloofBigBrother Itachi]], Shino, Neji and Gaara in ''Anime/{{Naruto}}''. Although Sasuke and Neji [[DeadpanSnarker used to make remarks, once in a while, about how stupid the others were]]. More or less the only female example (until Shippuden) is [[ShrinkingViolet Hinata]].

** Out of all the Akatsuki, [[BrokenBird Konan]] was significantly the quietest even when it was time for her and Pain's introduction she only spoke when it truly mattered.

* Subverted by Takashi "Mori" Morinozuka from ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub''. He is physically large and doesn't say much, but what he says is pretty mundane most of the time, not to mention how he tends to have a personality change on rainy days or if he's sleepy. This trope was, however, [[InvokedTrope invoked]] by Renge who tried to cast him as one in a DatingSim style movie.

* Kasumi of ''SamuraiGourmet'', but since he's the protagonist it makes it a rather MentalStory. Fortunately, he has plenty of InternalMonologue, and when that fails there's [[IndulgentFantasySegue the samurai]].

* ''Film/MadMax'' becomes this towards the end of the the first film after Jessie and Sprog die, only speaking when he feels necessary. It carries over to the second and fourth films as well. He's a little more talkative in the third.

*** The Main Character ([[FanNickname Minato]]/[[Anime/Persona3TheMovie Makoto]]/etc.) from ''VideoGame/Persona3'' fits this trope to a T. To elaborate, he is a HeroicMime who's never actually heard to speak (outside of [[CallingYourAttacks summoning his Persona]]). However, the player is able to choose dialogue options for him when speaking to others. None of these options are ever more than one sentence long, and other characters have [[LampshadeHanging commented]] on his quietness.

* In Music/TheBeatles, GeorgeHarrison was often considered the 'quiet one' being overshadowed both by the songwriting genius of Lennon & [=McCartney=] and the good natured clowning of Ringo Starr. Later, when he was allowed to write songs, he proved his innate talent was the equal of his comrades with 'Something' and 'Here Comes The Sun' amongst others.

* The title character of the ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' books. Granted, he's an English naval captain from the early 1800's, so isolation is part of the job, but Hornblower takes it beyond what would normally be expected because he's so cautious and self-conscious about saying something that might bite him later. He makes a point of never indulging in "unnecessary words."
