* In the original ''Franchise/{{Halloween}}'' series Michael never spoke and only ever uttered generic noises like grunts, which themselves are barely audible in most cases. In the remake series Michael's shown to talk, but only as a child.

** An early version of ''Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater'' also had Michael speak. Right before Laurie kills him with a javelin, he would've said her name.

* The Winter Soldier has less than ten lines in [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier his own movie]], most of them only a few words long, and only one -- and in Russian -- before [[spoiler:he's revealed to be Bucky Barnes]]. While it fits the characterization equally well, it's a change from how he's portrayed in the original comics, most likely [[spoiler:to prevent ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger First Avenger]]'' viewers from recognizing Creator/SebastianStan's voice]].

Added DiffLines:

* "Marisa And The Mirror" and "Feeling Clammy" , two of the Secret Life Of Sirenas shorts from ''WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor'' , respectively do this to Marisa and Daria. In the former, she comes across a mirror , with all of her emotions being expressed through facial expressions , and no dialogue, even when warning Elena of a shark. In the latter, she and Elena are trying to figure out how to save Ocho from a giant clam. She has no dialogue, outside of some grunts, with Elena getting more of the dialogue. [[note]] It was probably hard to get Creator/GinaRodriguez and Creator/RosarioDawson for what would essentially be a few lines. The grunts are most likely stock audio. [[/note]]

This turns out to be her one and only speaking contribution in the entire series, although later episodes imply she is quite talkative offscreen, with her girlfriend complaining about receiving "the silent treatment" and one scene beginning immediately after she has finished delivering a long lecture to the rest of the club.
