Go To



* Suited Franchise/PowerRangers use the HeadBob and exaggerated gesturing. In early seasons, it was sometimes accompanied by the air-whipping sounds typically reserved for fight scenes. By the time of ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' they were apparently designing the helmets to do this on their own when someone speaks (by using their chin to push the helmet forward slightly).

* Though not to the titanic degree of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', {{Toku}} in general (including ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', ''Franchise/KamenRider'', ''Franchise/MetalHeroes'', ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', etc.) does this.

* This is how Franchise/{{Batman}} introduces himself to Mr. Freeze in the much-despised ''Film/BatmanAndRobin''. No, seriously -- he greets himself to Freeze with a head-bob and says "Hi, Freeze, I'm Batman".
** Some even argue this is GeorgeClooney's signature.

* Any Machinima done in an {{FPS}}, notably those done in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', like ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. Note that when Sarge hangs a lampshade on it with the page quote, his own head movements are exaggerated. A bug in the game ''Halo'' allowed a character to appear to be looking forward when in fact he was aiming at the ground. This allowed machinima artists to make it look like the characters had lowered their weapons. In ''Halo 2'', this bug was fixed, but the game producers included a control to lower the character's weapon anyway.

* The original ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' on the first PlayStation didn't provide for mouths, so this is how characters were shown to be talking.

Added DiffLines:

* UpToEleven in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', where Canadians move the entire top of their heads to show that they're talking.


* In ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', character's heads will stretch like putty every time any character talks, since people don't have mouths in the game's calligraphic art style. This is especially odd as there's no voice acting, just ''{{Banjo-Kazooie}}''[[SpeakingSimlish -style grunting]].

'''Simmons:''' I have no idea. I can't find the volume on this monitor. And without any sound it just looks like a bunch of helmets bobbing up and down.\\
