* Though not really propagandistic, the civilians aboard the ''Macross'' in ''Film/MacrossDoYouRememberLove'' are on the receiving end of a couple throughout the film, usually warning that the ship is under attack/about to transform and that it would be a ''very'' good idea to seek shelter or shelter in place.
** A later sequence shows Admiral Global taking over the ship's civilian broadcasting network to announce the brokering of a peace treaty between the ''Macross'' and Vrlitwhai's[[note]]Britai/[[{{Robotech}} Breetai]]'s[[/note]] fleet.

* While ''Series/{{Community}}'s'' loudspeaker announcements are usually basically the kind of announcements you'd get in a community college with as much craziness as Greendale, when a social rating app leads to Greendale becoming a dystopia straight out of 70s science fiction so does the loudspeaker announcements.

* In ''VideoGame/SplinterCell: Chaos Theory'', during the mission in Seoul, North Korean troops have set up a series of loudspeakers that are blaring poorly-translated propaganda. Sam can shoot up the loudspeakers as a bonus objective, and will eventually find the broadcasting station by a command vehicle on the way to his objective primary objective, allowing him to permanently deal with ''that'' annoyance.
* Baby Panau's broadcasting vans, in ''[[VideoGame/JustCause Just Cause 2]]''. Absent from the rest of the game however; not even the bases have a PA system, just alarms.

* In ''VideoGame/Warframe, one faction, the Grineer, deploys Regulators in certain tylesets. They are basically sci-fi loudspeaker repeating propaganda. The propaganda actually buffs any of the Grineer {{Mooks}} that stand near a Regulator, making it a (small) threat. They are easily destroyed though.

* [[http://en.valka.cz/files/veh_uskfor_humvee.jpg There you go.]] PsyOps HMMWV: Canned orders over loudspeakers in the field. Damn things are loud, too. You'll hear one long before spotting it. Also useful for throwing parties.

* Federation Starbases in ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' have a pool of PSAs that play randomly over the PA, just audibly enough to remind players that, "unaccompanied tribbles are an environmental hazard," or that "starship traffic has right of way". One of them is, "security to the transporter room," intoned with a complete lack of urgency.

** The TropeNamer is ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', where you hear Jedore, a Blue Suns officer, doing this during the mission on Korlus. None of your team members are impressed, and one of them inevitably serves up a LampshadeHanging. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzj7uRNzLrs/ Here is a list]] of all the squad reactions to hearing the loudspeaker for the first time [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything (including characters that you shouldn't have at that point in the game)]].
