Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/AgesOfShadow'', this is done by [[FakeUltimateHero Maximus Domino]], partially justified by the fact that his attacks are spells he has to activate. [[FallenHero Jade]] states that he needs to come up with better names for them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/WorldTrigger'': Border agents often call the activation of specific triggers, such as bullet attacks and various, momentary sword boosts. Attacking with always-on triggers like plain swords is usually silent. Shooter Mizukami often tries to feint by falsely calling out the type of bullet he's shooting, often to no avail.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheWanderingInn'': Whenever a [skill] is being activated/casted the name of it is being called, though not because it sounds ''cooler'', but rather because it won't work otherwise. Nevertheless, when you reached your limit (''[Power Strike]! [Power Strike]! Why isnít thisó[Power Strike]''), it won't activate no matter how often you call it.

* Saying "check" and "checkmate" in chess. Also, ''writing'' your attacks -- it has been known for players, even some grandmasters, to write down their moves before making them on the board, although that practice has now been ruled banned.

Added DiffLines:

* In the Chinese game [[https://www.pagat.com/climbing/bigtwo.html Da Lao Er/Cho Dai Di ]], more commonly known as "Big Two" in the West, players typically announce the combination they play from their hands. This is mostly because cards are played in a common pile, and calling them helps to remember who played last. The highest combination, a straight flush, is the most intimidating to hear, especially when [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BewareTheQuietOnes the player who played it was relatively quiet about it until that point in the game.]]

Special and super moves based on skills in the [=RPGs=] sometimes have their names called out by the characters when used.
