* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has the slightly psychotic female announcer, [[http://www.teamfortress.com/war/administrator/ The Adminstrator]], who runs both sides. When a checkpoint is captured, she's more encouraging to the successful attackers and scornful to the failing defenders, and, if the round ends in a tie, dismisses ''both'' sides with a frustrated "You ''failed!!''". She doesn't keep her contempt for both teams a secret and it's hardly surprising that she has the [[Creator/EllenMcLain same voice actress]] as GLaDOS from ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' (and the Combine Overwatch in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'').

* ''DefenseOfTheAncients'' and ''VideoGame/{{Dota2}}'' started the tradition of always having an announcer narrate the games in the MOBA genre. The original map started out with ''{{Unreal}}'''s announcer calling out kill streaks (Killing spree! > Rampage! > Dominating!...) and kills in rapid succession (Double kill! > Triple kill! > M-M-M-M-MONSTER KILL! > HOLY SHIT!); when Valve took over the game, they added other well known voices of theirs such as [[{{Portal}} GLaDOS]] or the announcer from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.

* ''VideoGame/MadWorld'' features two commentators named Howard "Buckshot" Holmes and Kreese Kreely (voiced by Greg Proops and Creator/JohnDiMaggio respectively) that make comments on everything that goes on in the in-game sport of Deathwatch, and drop subtle hints for what you're supposed to do in the level and situation that you're in. Being [[UltraSuperDeathGoreFestChainsawer3000 the type of game that it is]], the commentary usually CrossesTheLineTwice. Example:
-->''(Against the Kojack boss)''
-->'''Howard''': Jack is ramming himself against Kojack!
-->'''Kreese''': So basically, Jack is ramming himself against himself. [[ADateWithRosiePalms We are watching the violent masturbation ever.]]
-->'''Howard''': Hmhm...[[{{Squick}} this is nothing]].

** The 2013 sequel offers three announcers to choose from (the new announcer, the original announcer and Ultratech boss ARIA) to suit your preferred flavor. It adds even more combo screams, including (in order) Basic, Triple, Quad, Solid, Hyper, Brutal, Master, Blaster, Extreme, Awesome, Monster, Insane, Beastly, King, Crazy, Killer, and Godlike. You can also pull off an '''ULTRAAA COOOOOOMBOOOOOOOOO!''', or get an '''ULTRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!''' if you do two or more in sequence.



* ''VideoGame/MadWorld'' has two announcers, [[Creator/JohnDiMaggio and one of them]] is [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]]! And the other is [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Whose Line]] star, Greg Proops! Naturally, their characters serve as [[CrowningMomentOfFunny comic relief]] throughout the game as [[AnythingThatMoves card-carrying pervert]] Howard "Buckshot" Holmes and Kreese Kreeley, a former competitor and fellow TestosteronePoisoning victim. An example of their dialog is as follows:

* [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents Cosmo and Wanda]] fill this role in ''VideoGame/TheFairlyOddparentsBreakinDaRules'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheFairlyOddparentsShadowShowdown Shadow Showdown]]'', pointing out wish stars, commenting on things central to completing the level, and [[HaveANiceDeath occasionally mocking you when you die]]. There's also [[HollerButton dedicated button for calling your fairies]], prompting them to comment on things in the level, or something relating to the story of either game.

* ''LeagueOfLegends'', descended from the previous game, featured an usually female announcer narrating the game (except a couple regions such as Latin America), only a bit different: four kills in rapid succession are a "QUADRA KILL!", and slaughtering the entire enemy team is a "PENTAKILL!!!!!!!!!". The same announcer also tells important events such as destroyed turrets and destroyed inhibitors, although the Rift Herald, the Dragons and Baron Nashor are not called out but instead signaled by characteristic screams (they are called out in spectator mode though).

** The game also has different announcers tied to seasonal events. The Bilgewater summer event in 2015 brought a pirate announcer, and the month after the release of the much-anticipated Aurelion Sol had Aurelion himself call out turret and inhibitor takedowns.
