* The film adaptation of ''Literature/HortonHearsAWho'' has Jojo, who never speaks until the end of the movie. Here's the reason why:

* In ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', the King and Queen do not speak. Despite this, they have three of the most emotionally charged and tearjerking scenes in the movie, which says a lot about the quality of the animation. In the short ''Disney/TangledEverAfter'', the Queen gets a single line in an ImagineSpot Later in [[WesternAnimation/TangledTheSeries The Series,]] they now Talk!

** Now subverted as of ''The Second Dream'' where the true nature of the Tenno are revealed; Tenno do not "wear" their Warframes, they actually remotely control them via somatic link due to their human bodies being unable to safely project their powers without breaking down or becoming unstable. Once the Tenno is installed in the somatic chamber on the ship, they will become much more...vocal during missions, musing about certain factions and enemies and shouting encouragement to their warframes when downed in combat. The warframes themselves continue to play this trope straight, though it isn't clear whether they prefer to remain silent and let the Tenno do the talking, are physically unable of speaking, or simply aren't autonomous enough to have independent thought or speech.

* The latter half of PennAndTeller when on camera or on stage. The few times Teller does speak out loud on camera, some other noise occurs in the foreground to drown out his voice.

* ''Film/CloudAtlas'': Technically, he's not literally voiceless, but until nearly the end of the Cavendish story, Mr. Meeks only utters the same phrase repeatedly: "I know, I know!" Meeks finally finds his voice when he [[spoiler: shouts out to Scottish rugby hooligans in a pub and urges them to fight off the staff of Aurora House who have come to take his crew back to the home.]]

** Ada had only a single line as Minverva, but it's not clear if it's just in Carl's mind who is capable of understanding her or if she did it out loud. This implies that her mother Ignis may be capable of speech too. But since both of them are trapped in doll bodies, this seems to be fairly difficult.

** In the CrisisCrossover finale of ''Anime/DigimonXrosWarsTheYoungHuntersLeapingThroughTime'', a very large number of the involved returning protagonists - specifically Yamato, Gabumon, Mimi, Palmon, V-mon, Wormmon, Guilmon and Renamon - have no speaking parts whatsoever. It's particularly egregious because this is a franchise that is heavy on CallingYourAttacks, and some of their original voice actors ARE involved with this series so it can't always be a matter of being unable to rehire the voice actors.

* Mitobe from ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke''. He never says a word (and if I recall correctly, he doesn't even have a single bubble with ellipses in the whole manga). Played with in a scene where he shows eating with his family, who all seem to be chatterboxes. Lampshaded in the first episode of the anime (not in the manga though), when they're getting people to join the basketball club:
