** "[[TheGunslinger Let's see if ya can dance!!]]"

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has a few, from the main characters and from the humanoid enemies. Genis usually had the most elaborate ones. "Form a torrential vortex and engulf the evil spirits!" Also, Zelos has "Don't run!", said in a smug, taunting way.

** Empire units tend to use "SIGMAR!" or "HELDENHAMMER!" in honor of the Empire's first Emperor and prime deity. This pisses off Ulric-worshippers, who consider their god to be the Empire's true god of war, to no end.

* "OORAH" was used by Russian warriors long time before US Marines started to use it. Popularised during WW2 by soviet infantry "OORAH!!!"-charges, which were strongly intimidating to Wehrmacht troops.

''Very'' odd, as you won't hear it during any Pro Wrestling event held since Wrestling/{{WCW}} ended. Michael Buffer, boxing announcer and MC-- who occasionally introduced WCW main events -- has trademarked the phrase and has been somewhat aggressive against those who use it -- not surprising as according to TheOtherWiki, he's made $400 million off of those five words alone... (Buffer's introductions are deleted from Wrestling/{{WWE}} 24/7.)

* TheOtherWiki has an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_cry extensive list]] of RealLife battle cries, as well as some fictional examples. A particularly notable is the one used by the Japanese in WWII ("Banzai!").

** This war cry was also popular during the Winter War. Another, popularized by ''The Unknown Soldier'', was "Tulta munille!", which roughly translates to "[[GroinAttack Fire at their balls!]]", as according to TheOtherWiki.

* Every (non-monster) NPC in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' makes a battle cry before attacking (things like "Now you die!" etc.).

to:

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Throughout the series, the [[HornyVikings Nords]] get one of these as a racial ability. It temporarily causes weaker opponents to flee battle, useful if you find yourself outnumbered. Additionally, the Nords were the first (mortal) race in Tamriel to master the Thu'um, [[LanguageOfMagic the language of the Dragons]], which takes this trope to its logical conclusion by having the battle cry be capable of [[MakeMeWannaShout directly inflicting harm]] to opponents.
**
Every (non-monster) NPC opponent in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' makes ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' has a battle cry they'll shout before attacking (things attacking. ("Now you die!," "You filthy [[FantasticSlur swit]]!", etc.)
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'':
*** There are also a few [[LargeHam gloriously hammy]] battle cries specific to members of the [[ApocalypseCult Mythic Dawn]], such as "Lord Dagon will welcome your soul in Oblivion!" and "Be glad you will not live to see the day Dagon walks the earth!"
*** Imperial troops frequently shout "For the Emperor!" as they charge. The [[AncientOrderOfProtectors Blades]] add "For the Blades!"
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''
*** Thanks to the PlayerCharacter being a legendary Dragonborn, you can now use the aforementioned Thu'um.
*** Both sides of the {{Civil War}} conflict get in on this action. Imperial soldiers return with cries
like "Now you die!" etc.)."For the Empire!" and "For the Legion!" Stormcloaks, meanwhile, shout things like "Skyrim is for the Nords!"



* Imperial troops in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' frequently holler "For the Emperor!" as they charge. The Blades add "For the Blades!" Likewise in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' the Imperial Legion frequently shout "For the Emperor!" as they charge and occasionally shout "For the Empire! For the Legion!" There are also a few [[LargeHam gloriously hammy]] battle cries specific to members of the [[ApocalypseCult Mythic Dawn]], such as "Lord Dagon will welcome your soul in Oblivion!" and "Be glad you will not live to see the day Dagon walks the earth!"
** Thanks to the player character's nature in ''Skyrim'', you have a whole ''host'' of battle cries to choose from, all in the dragon language. And no matter which one you opt for, [[MakeMeWannaShout it spells bad news for your enemies.]]
