While some anime characters are loud and bold, others prefer to let their actions speak for them.

One of the best anime tropes is the stoic character who exemplifies the proverb, "still waters run deep." These men and women have few words and show little emotion, but below the surface they feel very deeply and have strong values. They may have moments where they confide in other characters, giving glimpses of their depth of feeling and contemplative nature.
