* [[Literature/TheVorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]] does this ''a lot'', in keeping with his hyperactive and not-entirely-stable personality. He mentions on one occasion that he likes to think out loud because it slows down his thoughts to the point where he can get a good look at them, and also admits that very few people can stand to listen to him for long. On another occasion he actually uses this - ranting about how everyone always thinks ''Ivan'' is the smart one, and the bad guys have exposed their entire scheme for the sake of grabbing the ''expendable'' Barrayaran, and it's been like this since they were kids, y'know... - to provide a distraction for an ally, who takes so long to spring her ambush that even ''Miles'' starts to worry he's going to run out of things to say.

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom does this a lot. In ''ComicBook/SecretWars'', [[TalkativeLoon Klaw]] calls him out on it, asking if Doom is taping himself. Doom then reveals that he is, because [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Every utterance of Doom must be recorded for posterity!"]]

*** One of his MomentsOfAwesome (due to its earliness, one of his {{Establishing Character Moment}}s) is his rapturous HumansAreSpecial speech in "The Ark in Space". Harry is present and likely able to hear him, but he moves to another room before the Doctor starts in order to give Tom Baker the set to himself and emphasise the speech's Shakespearean nature.

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Conspiracy," Data starts doing this, and then overexplains the concept to the computer [[FunnyMoments before it tells him to shut up]].

* In the first ''Film/AustinPowers'' movie, after Austin himself is thawed out, he monologues out loud his desire to sleep with this movie's BondGirl, then realizes that everyone in the room heard him. That is an example of DidIJustSayThatOutLoud, but when he says a side effect of the cryonic freezing process has left him with no inner monologue, that is Thinking Loudly.

* Elgala from ''Manga/ExcelSaga'' is an odd example of this. These moments are presented in word balloons normally reserves for {{Inner Monologue}}s, suggesting that she really is just thinking to herself instead of out loud. [[InnerMonologueConversation And yet everyone can inexplicably hear what she's thinking anyway.]]
* Chopper of ''Manga/OnePiece'' combines this with ImStandingRightHere when he both thinks out loud and badmouths his hosts because he'd thought them crude primitives at first glance.
* Pretty much the trademark of [[Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis Shinji Ibu]]. Hilariously invoked in one of his {{Image song}}s and the Talk time track of said CD, which is basically Shinji mumbling nonstop.

* ''Series/Arrow'': In season 1, when Oliver first returned to the island, he often talked aloud to himself when alone. This could be interpreted in two different ways. 1) Oliver spent a great time allowed and probably got used to his own company, perhaps talking aloud to keep himself sane. 2) It cued the audience into what Oliver was thinking as we had no other way to know what he was planning unless he told us. Once Diggle came along, these think alouds quickly faded away, with Oliver now discussing his plans with Diggle.

* Touka of ''Manga/SukiXSuki'' has a hard time expressing herself, especially when she's around Ryoutarou. This changes drastically when she gains the ability to become invisible. While invisible, she speaks all of her thoughts out loud, doing things like gushing over Ryoutarou because she knows nobody can hear her. Unknown to Touka, Ryoutarou ''can'' hear and see everything she does,
