* Many eastern {{R|olePlayingGame}}PGs employ animated speech bubbles with ellipses that appear above characters' heads (instead of talking through dialogue boxes) when they're speechless, amongst them the Franchise/TalesSeries and any Creator/NipponIchi game.

** Sasuke was already a ninja of few words, but when he recruited his own team, he went dead silent for a few chapters while they argued amongst each other. ''Fortunately'', the author was considerate enough to feature a cel of Sasuke saying "..." after ''every joke and insult'', [[TheComicallySerious with the same blank look on his face]]. If he hadn't, we would have ''never'' known Sasuke was ignoring them and it would have seemed like he just suddenly disappeared. They seem to have a stock of Sasukes with this, for all the times the manga cuts to him just to have him say nothing.

** This is pretty much Red's "CatchPhrase", as befitting one who was the original games' HeroicMime. In ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'', you can visit Red atop Mt. Silver. He only says "..." when you talk to him, before and after the battle. Even in his appearance in ''VideoGame/PokemonStadium 2'', he only says "...", when something important happens in the battles, even though every other trainer has selected phrases that they say. The tradition continues in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', where, once again, he says nothing but "..." The [[SuddenlyVoiced one exception]] is ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', if you believe that the character is supposed to be Red and not some other random Pokemon Trainer.

* Amazingly enough, Creator/WilliamShakespeare [[TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples used a variant of this]] in Sonnet 126 - the last two lines of the sonnet consist of empty parentheses. Not necessarily Shakespeare himself, since there are questions whether he had a hand in publishing them. There is a good chance they're just an editor's indication that the sonnet is unfinished.
