** It wasn't just necessary for the combination, either. To even use their powers individually, they first had to call out the name of their power. As Wheeler (of course) discovered, it counts if you say the word even if you don't mean it that way.

** A villainous example: BigBad Mumm-Ra transforms into a OneWingedAngel form with the incantation "Ancient spirits of evil, [[TransformationSequence transform]] this decayed form, ''into Mumm-Ra''... '''the Ever-Living!''' [[EvilLaugh Bwa ha ha ha HA!]]"
** In one particularly embarrassing original series moment that Mumm-Ra will never live down, ''Snarf'' of all people takes advantage of this catchphrase to become even more beefy than Mumm-Ra himself. Clearly Mumm-Ra's transformation chamber could do with better security.

** This trope takes its title from ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'', where that CatchPhrase changed unassuming Prince Adam into his titular alter-ego. In ''The New Adventures of He-Man'' it was changed to "By the power of Eternia..." The much less known power-''down'' phrase (used once each in the 1980s series and [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002 the 2000s series]]) is "Let the power return!"

* In ''Webcomic/{{Parallax}}'', Raiments are activated by a "Key", which is essentially this trope. Unfortunately, since most Raiment users have absolutely no idea how to use the Raiment, their Key is usually some random word like "What?" or [[spoiler:"Ass!"]]

** Spells in ''Kobolds Ate My Baby'' require the player to perform the correct action/speak the correct words. The phrase for casting "Wall of Beer" was "Tappa tappa kegga, wall o'Beer omega!". Being invisible required the player to cross their arms and do their best to look like a brooding vampire.
