** Completely averted by Mihawk, who is one of the few characters who DOESN'T call his attacks. Those attacks of his that are named at all are either named only in video games, or named by an observing character (ie the "[[RazorWind World's Strongest Slash]]").

* PlayedForLaughs in ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians''[='s=] Firefight mode, where the [[MiniMecha Goblin]]'s Grunt pilot will actually call out his attacks like he's in a SuperRobot anime. ("Hyper Attack!", "Needle Blast!", "Robo Punch!", etc.)

** Ditto ''VideoGame/ValkyrieProfileCovenantofthePlume'' too.
* In ''Vattroller X'', most characters summon a creature when they use their SmartBombs. [[Manga/OnePiece Zoro]] however, having nothing to summon, just has a bunch of text appear over his head instead.

** In the second Boston Brawl, both Fey and the Necromancer call their spells out before using them. [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] later: in the lead up to their third fight, Necromancer admits to Hekate that he normally does that for the intimidation factor, since most non-magical opponents would be frozen with fear just by the name of his spells. He goes on to say that the next time he fought Fey - who was considerably more powerful than he was, but much less experienced (sort of) - he would have to keep that habit in check.

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends''' The Wonder Twins and the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' homages in "Ultimatum".
* On ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'', Razor would usually shout out the missile being fired, as he fired it, even if it wasn't a new one. Though that could be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] because of the [[AbnormalAmmo nature of some of their missiles]] so T-Bone would know what not to do maneuver-wise to keep from disrupting it.

* Bungie's heavily anime-influenced game Oni, which greatly encourages fisticuffs over gunplay and does its best to run the gamut of asian sci-fi's most entertaining tropes. Both the protagonist Konoko and bad guys call attacks. Konoko (voiced by Anime regular Amanda Winn Lee) has "Devil Spin Kick!" and "Rising fury!", and even low-level mooks, Strikers in the nomenclature of the game, have "Strikerrrrr-SLAM!". Everyone gets cool reverb effects, particularly the Furies (female strikers) with "Tennnnnn-SHADOW!" punch combos.

** The ''[[Anime/{{Robotech}} Macross]]'' functions as a truly epic-scale HumongousMecha for purposes of this trope, including a MegatonPunch attack that is ''always'' called. The climactic moment of the war in both the series and TheMovie involves another called attack. Although this is somewhat justified, as a commanding officer is giving an order to be carried out by the crew.
*** Macross pilots sometimes wish they were in a {{Super Robot|Genre}} show: for example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ3S3SGTUUg GAMLIN KIIIICK!!]]

* In ''VideoGame/JimmyAndThePulsatingMass'', this is actually a gameplay feature: calling your attack will make it deal double damage on the next round, but you'll lose the buff if you're startled.

* ''WebComic/OnePunchMan'': Spoofed, like so many other tropes. Saitama will call his attacks if they're anything other than just him hitting his opponent... but his called attacks are just things like "Consecutive Normal Punches" or "Serious Punch", the latter of which is just him putting some actual effort into a punch. Furthermore, he doesn't shout them so much as calmly state them in the same bored tone of voice he usually uses.
