* Played around with Shao Kahn in ''MortalKombat''; given that he's the announcer in the second and third games, he says "I win" instead of "(character) wins" when victorious. "It is official; ''you suck."

*** And the [[Creator/JamiesonPrice announcer]] in ''Super Street Fighter IV'' pretty much ''breathes'' [[HotBlooded fiery passion]]. Among other things, he even drops a ShoutOut to ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' with '''''ULTRA COMBO FINIIIIIIIIISH!'''''

*** Actually, the above announcer from ''[=MvC2=]'' is actually pretty chill, only really giving his two cents at the victory screen (which is done so rather softly). The [[VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter previous]] [[VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroesVsStreetFighter three]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes announcers]] were much more pumped for the ensuing battle, with the ''[=MSHvSF=]'' one actually ''[[CallingYourAttacks belting out the names of your Hyper Combos with much aplomb if you won a match with them]]''.
** Subverted with the announcer in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: 3rd Strike''. He is very minimalist in comparison, and is generally more calm and direct than most announcers. Although he does break this for one particular line...

* Some server-side ''VideoGame/{{Counter-Strike}}'' mods are designed to play the UT announcer sounds.

* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', descended from the previous game, featured an usually female announcer narrating the game (male in 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 explicitly called out in spectator mode though).

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Fight Night'' series has them, as it's about professional boxing. However, they highly over-exaggerate how powerful attacks are and aren't aware that health regenerates too quickly for anything but haymakers or constant pressure to do anything but be a minor inconvenience.

* Some of the replaceable lines can get interesting in the more recent ProfessionalWrestling games that try to reproduce the announcers' dialogue, including 'witty' banter. A few can get it horribly wrong, as some reviews for ''SmackdownVsRaw 2007'' indicated--typically, in a niche game like this, it helps to actually, you know, get the maneuvers named correctly.

* ''RidgeRacer 64'' has a terrible, over-enthusiastic announcer saying what's going on during the race. Thankfully, he doesn't chatters too much. ''RidgeRacer Type 4'', meanwhile, has a calmer, much better announcer with a deep echo added to his voice. ''Rage Racer's'' announcer is Reiko Nagase herself.

** ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' not only has one announcer whose lines pay homage to ''Alpha 3'' and ''[=CvS2=]'', but the latest builds also have [[Creator/KateHiggins a second announcer]] (who sounds like Issun from ''{{Okami}}'') who runs commentary throughout the match, commenting on how the fighters fare and their strategies akin to the aforementioned ''Capcom vs. SNK 2'' announcer. (Issun doesn't have any audible speech, merely providing the text for Amaterasu's victory quotes.)

* ''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 [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS]] or the announcer from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.
