[[quoteright:226:[[Webcomic/DorkTower http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dork_Tower_Wall_of_Blather_6416.PNG]]]]

A character in a comic talks, on and on and on, but the exact content's not important. Or else no one is listening.

Their blathering is given in a WallOfText--often as the backdrop--but [[PaintingTheMedium the text is obscured]] with SpeechBubblesInterruption (whether by other speech bubbles, the characters themselves, or some other visual element) so that the reader knows the complete text is not important.

Enough words are usually shown to get the gist of what the character is expressing, although BlahBlahBlah is also common, depending on whether the characters listened enough to get the gist, or not at all.

LongSpeechTeaTime can have actions that obstruct the bubbles.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Izuku Midoriya can fall into this frequently when analyzing someone's Quirk in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''.
* Akina Shinozaki is not prone to this normally in ''Manga/DontBecomeAnOtakuShinozakiSan'', but get her on the topic of her favorite anime, ''[=PrePure=]'' and her budding otaku side will burst out in a decent wall.
* Describing delicious food will cause ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma's'' Leonora Nakiri to break into this. It's especially notable as Leonora normally speaks very broken Japanese, but when the Wall of Blather kicks in she's instantly fluent.
* Genos's backstory is revealed like this in the [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/2d922126b6582368bf54a69c489c4f37/tumblr_mj5emjY9oC1qbxqfpo1_1280.png manga version]] of ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan''. Saitama doesn't listen to it (he's too busy being irked by it) and yells at the cyborg to shorten it to 20 words or less.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Used in ''ComicBook/GorskyAndButch'', mostly for really unimportant stuff but once for the authors' notes, which are extremely plot-relevant. But not only that -- in one scene they talk too much, and the speech bubbles create a traffic jam.
* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' has Swerve, a diminutive MotorMouth who has the ability to talk at length about nothing in particular. In one instance, he did so for ''147 hours straight''. There's comic panels demonstrating why he is also known as "Shut The Hell Up."

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* In ''ComicStrip/PricklyCity'', Winslow at a press conference -- going BlahBlahBlah as well.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'', [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rarity]] gets carried away when she gets the idea of making a new suit for [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix]], and she keeps blathering in the background while Phoenix and Pinkie discuss where to go next.
* A [[http://lynxgriffin.deviantart.com/art/Those-Lacking-Spines-pg-5-36099284 comic]] for the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' fanfiction ''Fanfic/ThoseLackingSpines'' shows [[OverusedCopycatCharacter Jeffiroth's]] BadassBoast as this to the protagonists, who would much rather see what fight he can put up with rather than be bored with words.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The credits to ''Film/WrongfullyAccused'', among other CreditsGag, include a section headed "Nobody Cares About These People", which is then scrolled through at about 300% speed.

* In the TV movie ''Series/GetSmart, Again!'' our ComedicHero manages to cock up CONTROL's replacement for the ever-unreliable Cone of Silence. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gV-NkDZz7fQ Hall of Hush]] turns spoken words into visible words floating in the air, but Max spends so much time raving about how wonderful this invention is the Hall of Hush becomes full of words and no-one can make out what anyone else is saying.

* Comedian Henry Phillips' song "She's Talking Again" tries to drown out his blind date, whose ongoing voice-over continues throughout the entire song. She rambles inanely about anything that comes into her head, including uncomfortable medical topics and incorrect historical references, nonstop without segue or purpose of any kind. At the end when the song runs out of energy, she says what a great listener he is and they should do this again in the future.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In one of the dream sequences in ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'', Max answers a phone to be greeted with a stream of meaningless nonsense spoken in his own voice, which is represented in the in-game graphic novel using this trope.
* Twice in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Bowser's Inside Story]]'', a goomba in Bowser's castle, and a magikoopa in Peach's Castle.

* Vaarsuvius of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has had this treatment a few times. [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0010.html The first of several.]]

* ''Webcomic/DresdenCodak'', often uses a variant where we only see the part that fits within in a speech bubble, as if viewing a Wall of Blather through an elliptical window. [[http://dresdencodak.com/2007/06/30/in-the-company-of-science/ For instance, rambling on and on about a new found robot.]] This creates the effect that the listener is drifting in and out of a spiel they can't be bothered to pay full attention to, or [[TechnoBabble couldn't follow if they tried]].

* In ''Webcomic/ThreeJaguars'', [[http://threejaguarscomic.net/?comic=good-marketing-4 the clipboard of slogans while Artist and Business Manager discuss marketing.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s Kankri Vantas is an over-the-top [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad social justice warrior]] who loves to go on [[WallOfText long sermons]] given the slightest provocation (or, in fact, none at all). Particularly ridiculous ones are displayed in several columns of unreadably tiny text just to drive the point home.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' uses this [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2006-01-20 here]] and [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2011-10-21 here]] with the WallsOfText fading out and [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2012-09-20 here]] with an argument continuing in the background. In the last two examples the full text is given in the commentary.
* In ''Webcomic/BrunoTheBandit'', [[http://brunothebandit.com/d/19980720.html the introduction strip had Bruno's speech bubble over the narration -- which he can apparently hear.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}}'': [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1181 Asako does this to Yuki]] only to be abruptly interupted [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1182 a few panels later]] when Yuki realizes there was vital information in that wall of blather.
* ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'': When Lavali (for reasons of her own) gets Sandra to talk at length about her work, the details that Sandra offloads are unimportant to the plot, [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/lets_talk_about_youuuu so the trope shows up.]]
