* In ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'', Ignition Weapos like Black March, Narumada and Green April will only release their special abilities when their name is combined with the command to attack (i.e., "Black March, IGNITE!"). Since this happens in the heat of battle, there will be shouts.

** The main character, Baam, is notable for largely {{avert|edTrope}}ing this trope. In a world where most everyone loudly declares their techniques or intentions as they fight, Baam almost ''never'' so much as whispers his attacks. He only really says the names of his attacks when he's using [[PowerCopying techniques he's copied from others.]] [[spoiler:This holds true even five years later, when he goes under the name of Jyu Viole Grace.]]

** Undine's team, Team Alchemical, used attack names for team attacks. Silvia's air and Sally's fire become "Firestorm", Gwen's earth and Undine's water become "Fertile Soil", while earth and fire become "Lava Whatever" because Sally's not creative and Gwen doesn't care.

** Used as a DramaPreservingHandicap in the ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'' spin-off. Astolfo's last Noble Phantasm is a book that can break any magic spell, and just holding it gives him A-rank Magic Resistance. However, he can only take advantage of the later effect because he's so much [[TheDitz a ditz]] that he ''forgot the name''.
