* The ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series is pretty unique among [[ShootEmUp shmups]] in that most of the bosses' attack patterns are all different named attack spells, with the spell name displayed onscreen when it is cast. Various [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary material]] for the series explicitly states that, whilst the use of named spells is not necessary to practise magic (or swordsmanship, or exorcism, etc), it was codified as a form of ritualized magical combat in the distant past.
** According to some supplementary material, the main character herself modified the combat to the system used in the games sometime between the fifth and sixth games (that is, of course, assuming the [[ShrugOfGod first five games are even canon]]).
** [[ILoveNuclearPower Utsuho Reiuji]] does it with ''bright yellow CAUTION! signs and a warning klaxon''.

* The sprite films of [[http://probertson.livejournal.com/ Paul Robertson]] are FULL of this in AffectionateParody. It was taken to its most ridiculous extreme in his (clearly) early production, [[http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3150726719493814325# Hyper Parsnip Bitches]]. It all culminates in this (more or less, it's hard to understand anything):
