* Wrestling/JimCornette, manager of Wrestling/TheMidnightExpress. Once he got going there was no shutting him up, compounded by the fact that he yells at about two hundred decibels or so. He had to be either a former auctioneer, or he missed his calling with it. Observe [[https://youtu.be/4n2jOzK9D54 this promo]] about the varsity club and see if you can keep up... He developed the motormouth shtick because he got used to having more interview time before switching promotions in '85.

** After he broke the [[ArtifactOfDoom Eye of Tyr]] at the beginning of the 2012 Season Premiere ''Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}} The Thirteenth Hat'', January 28, 2012, he spoke in a coherent, intelligible manner and at a normal pace. He would still speak his usual way out of CHIKARA, though.

%% ** Doctor Strange - usually when he's being clever/actually deigning to tell people what he's been up to for once.
** Loki - when he's thinking aloud. Letting his mouth run and being called up by an alternately amused/tetchy Thor (situation depending) is a RunningGag.
** Peter Parker shows up in Book 2 and engages in a long string of CasualDangerDialogue while wrestling [[spoiler: Grey Court vampires]]. He makes the other examples from this fic look quiet and solemn by comparison.

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', when Deku is trying to figure something out, he has a tendency to mutter to himself at high speed about the various factors involved. He does this quietly, but still with enough volume to be noticeable to others; this is signified by having the onomatopoeia for "mutter" drift out of his mouth and orbit his head.

Added DiffLines:

* Nagisa Furukawa from ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'' talks too much at times but more out of nervousness then excitement unless The Dango Family is brought up.
** Fuko, sometimes, as she is very hyperactive for her age.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/AntMan'', Scott's buddy Luis answers questions with long run-on-sentence explanations full of digressions (and hilariously visualised on screen as he talks). Taken UpToEleven in ''Film/AntManAndTheWasp'', where the bad guys inject him with something to make him talk, and then desperately ask the other Ex-Cons if there's any way of making him ''stop''.

** The show deliberately set out to invoke this trope in tribute to the person on which it's based - while the real Hamilton wasn't necessarily known for speaking fast, he was sure as hell known for speaking a whole ''lot'', always cramming in as many words as he could into his speeches and letters. In order to get that many words into a single musical, Lin-Manuel Miranda therefore had to make it fast: and sure enough, it's one of the fastest musicals in theatre history, fitting over 20,000 words into two and a half hours.

** In fact, the fast rapping is so common that it's notable when it doesn't happen: Eliza is the only non-minor character (i.e., excepting Maria and Peggy, who only appear for a song each) who never raps. As Phillipa Soo (who played her in the original broadway cast) put it, this ties into the theme of how she was the only character who had what Hamilton (who 'writes like he's running out of time') never could get: time.
* The titular character of ''Theatre/DearEvanHansen'' can be prone to this. Evan is shown to ramble when he’s anxious, which is almost all the time. This is first shown in the first scene, when his mom asks him why he didn’t order dinner the previous night, and he starts rambling about why even the thirty-second interaction of someone delivering food is too much for him to handle. This tendency is further shown when he has a conversation with Zoe, his crush, and his responses go a mile a minute and are frequently interrupted by himself.

** Many salarians share this trait; hyperactivity innate part of salarian biology. (Presumably any who talk at standard speed catering to sluggish-thinking aliens. Or, in the case of Captain Kirrahe, talking at normal speed because that RousingSpeech wouldn't have worked at normal salarian speed). A large part of it has to do with the fact that salarians have an average lifespan of 40 years. If you were on that tight of a deadline, you'd hurry up too.

A large part of it has to do with the fact that salarians have an average lifespan of 40 years. If you were on that tight of a deadline, you'd hurry up too.



** Bedman doesn't talk at all during battles, but his quotes upon losing/winning a match or getting hit with certain instant kill moves are extremely long and spoken at a high speed. His reaction to the cutesy facial he receives courtesy of Faust's instant kill move in particular is so long that he's still talking while the announcer declares the winner and barely manages to finish before the next round starts.
** From the same game, all of Elphelt's win poses and win quotes in which she takes out her marriage certificate and starts rambling for 15 seconds long before she gets a nosebleed. This even puts her the same level as [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Rufus]]'s talking.

** Ruby tends toward this when she's nervous or excited. It's especially noticable whenever she waxes lyrical about weapons as she considers herself a weapons geek. If given a chance to talk about her dream job, she tends to start talking non-stop as well as she thinks the world of becoming a Huntress.

** Dr. Oobleck's lectures and speeches when he gets to talking about history, geography, or any other subject he's knowledgeable about get fast to the point of being almost impossible for either his students or the audience to follow.

** Resident [[MrExposition Exposition Girl]] Aranea also tends to go on a bit, to the point of delivering a several-pages long InfoDump on leprachaun romance for seemingly no reason whatsoever, and eventually, [[AttentionWhore actively paying other characters to listen to her]]. She, like Kankri, is almost a parody of this trope.

* Karim Debbache, host of ''WebVideo/{{Crossed}}'' usually talks fast enough to give this effect while remaining intelligible. He takes it UpToEleven (aften taking a deep breath) to enumerate ''some'' of the flaws of what he describes as "the worst scene in cinema history" in his review of ''Film/HouseOfTheDead''.

** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' gives us Ikki, is the middle child of three airbending children between a LittleMissSnarker older sister and a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} younger brother, but is the more energetic and talkative of the them to the point it annoys their father, Tenzin, and his rival, Tarllok. She never stops. She does however demonstrate HiddenDepths on Bolin when he tries [[DownplayedTrope a slightly subdued]] Motor Mouth spiel of questions which she manages to answer perfectly with pin-point accuracy.

* ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan'' has the self-explanatory Quick Man, who speaks like this in his rare few appearances. Oddly enough, he also takes long pauses between each of his sentences, so there's notable moments of silence in between strings of rapid-fire speech.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'': Whizzer (a pink pegasus pony with three beany caps as a cutie mark) is generally portrayed this way in the original ''My Little Pony'', but it is inconsistent for the most part. Generally though, she talks fast and flies fast.

** Autumn Blaze, an energetic {{Kirin}} from the episode "Sound Of Silence". She has become this due to years of being silent. Whenever she talks, she tends to talk as much as she can, and even asks others to do the same.

** In "King Size Homer", Homer is unable to get a lift to the nuclear plant to stop the explosion due to rambling about poisonous gas, thus scaring people off. When he tries to get an ice cream truck to give him a lift, his rambling and obesity scares the driver out of the truck.

-->'''Larry''': Ten days after I turned eight / Got my lips stuck in a gate / My friends all laughed / And I just stood there until the fire department came and broke the lock with a crow bar and I had to spend the next six weeks in lip rehab with this kid named Oscar who got stung by a bee right on the lip and we couldn't even talk to each other until the fifth week because both our lips were so swollen and when he did start speaking he just spoke Polish and I only knew like three words in Polish except now I know four because Oscar taught me the word for lip: Usta!

** If anything, Yahtzee has gotten ''faster'' and more intense; he sounds positively ''sedate'' in his older videos compared to his newer ones. [[WordOfGod He has stated]] that the fast talking was by accident. Apparently he keeps it up and edits the pauses out, because it's funnier that way.
