'''Basic Trope''': A character, who speaks very little, if at all.
* '''Straight''': Gregor only rarely speaks, his words carrying a lot more weight.
* '''Exaggerated''': Gregor can effortlessly go on months/years/centuries without speaking a word.
* '''Downplayed''': Gregor addresses what necessary, although like [[Creator/ErnestHemingway Hemingway]].
* '''Justified''':
** Gregor [[HatesSmallTalk dislikes pointless small talk]].
** Gregor has low self-esteem and feels he hasn't anything important to say.
** Gregor is a foreigner and hasn't learned much of another language.
** Gregor acknowledges all too clearly how many people can talk their heads off and never say anything with substance. He prefers to say a lot with very little, because it has plenty more weight.
** Gregor has a [[CompellingVoice Compelling voice]] But since he suffers from [[PowerIncontinence power incontinence,]] he therefore doesn't speak unless he wants to use his power, or has some way to [[PowerLimiter turn it off.]]
** Gregor has grown up in a family, community or culture where silence and brevity are revered.
** Gregor grew up in a whole family of {{Motor Mouth}}s, so he couldn't get very many words into family discussions without being interrupted.
** Gregor is a HumanoidAbomination which still doesn't grasp human language.
** Gregor's speech borders on TheUnintelligible, so he feels there's not much point to him talking a lot.
* '''Inverted''': MotorMouth
* '''Subverted''': Gregor starts out quiet, but when he finds a good friend in Johnathon, he starts talking a lot more.
* '''Double Subverted''': That is, until Johnathon quietly tells him that it's really not like him to talk so much. Gregor then goes back to being quiet.
* '''Parodied''': Gregor says absolutely nothing, communicating only with speech bubbles that other characters can apparently see, [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight and find completely normal]].
* '''Zig Zagged''': Depending on his mood, Gregor either barely speaks at all, or [[MotorMouth talks almost constantly]].
* '''Averted''': Gregor likes to speak just for the joy of it.
* '''Enforced''': Gregor's actor doesn't speak English, or knows very little of it.
* '''Lampshaded''': "What do you know, Gregor finally said something for the first time in four episodes."
* '''Invoked''': Gregor, [[MotorMouth normally a chatterbox]], decides to speak only when absolutely necessary, as he [[CryingWolf wants to be taken seriously]] whenever he says something to avoid PoorCommunicationKills.
* '''Exploited''': The big bad [[SomeCallMeTim Tim]] knows that Gregor doesn't talk much. He incorporates this into part of his HannibalLecture to Gregor, claiming that Gregor doesn't talk much because he feels his opinions don't matter to his TrueCompanions. This provokes Gregor into being both [[MotorMouth noisy ]] and [[FaceHeelTurn evil]].
* '''Defied''': Gregor realises he is quiet and decides to start talking more, to see if he likes it.
* '''Discussed''':
--> '''Alice''': Bob, how can we get Gregor to open up more?\\
'''Bob''': That's a hard thing to do, Alice.
* '''Conversed''': "It's always these guys in the show to always have less lines than the others."
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Gregor ''does'' have many important things to say, but is never given the opportunity to say them. This creates frustration in Gregor, and PoorCommunicationKills in everyone else.
** Others start to view Gregor as rude, arrogant, and apathetic because of his quietness.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Gregor learns how to keep his sentences short and sweet, while at the same time delivering them with maximum impact. So now when he tries to tell the others something, '''''everybody''''' listens.
** Gregor's companions know his quietness means he simply doesn't have anything to say so they agree not to misjudge him.
** Gregor agrees to only talk whenever he feels like it.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Gregor's inner thoughts are very intricate, poetic, and philosophical, but when he actually ''speaks'', it's about something ridiculously mundane.
