* In ''{{Drakengard}} 2'', there's a button that calls your dragon down. What makes it fall under the trope is that Nowe shouts out ''"Legna!"'' when you hit it. (Caim would likely have done the same with Angelus [[TheVoiceless if he had vocal cords]].)

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BattleBlockTheater'' has one (though it's not so much a Holler button as it is a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny cry like a little baby]] button). It usually has no real use, but it CAN call friendly animals to you.

* Both ''VideoGame/TheFairlyOddparentsBreakinDaRules'' and its SpiritualSuccessor, ''[[VideoGame/TheFairlyOddparentsShadowShowdown Shadow Showdown]]'' present a variant: pressing a certain button will call Cosmo and Wanda, who will comment on things in the level, what's going on in the story, or give you hints as to how to get through a particular section.
** The latter game plays this straight with two wishes:
*** The first is in the "Fairly Disastrous" level, and sees [[ItMakesSenseInContext Timmy in a cow suit so he can lure the wayward Dairy Fairy cows back to their respective barns]]. Pressing the action button will make him to moo, which will causes the cow to follow him back to its barn.
*** The second is in the "Get a Clue!" level, in which Timmy wishes to become a ghost to frighten the AnimatedArmor that attacks you petrified so he can safely pass through (again, ItMakesSenseInContext). In this case, the action button has him make typical "ghost" noises.

* In ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'' you can use the right analog stick to give commands to your canine companion, Hewie. Pushing it down calls him, leading to different hollers in different situations, from "Hewie!" to "Hewiiiieeeee! Help!"

* In ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'' you can use the right analog stick to give commands to your canine companion, Hewie. Pushing it down calls him, leading to different hollers in different situations, from starting with a gentle "Hewie!" to "Hewiiiieeeee! Help!" in normal circumstances, becoming a harsher "HEWIE!" when a stalker is around, and turning straight into "'''HELP!'''" when she is in Panic Mode.



* While playing as Y.V. in ''VideoGame/NuclearThrone'', pressing the B key causes the screen to slightly shake while an air horn sound plays.



* In ''Videogame/{{Postal}} 2'', the Postal Dude can yell at bystanders to get down if they don't want to die. In the original release it had [[TauntButton no functionality]], but when integrated with the Steam Workshop, yelling it will cause bystanders to either not react, panic, or open fire on the player depending on what the Dude is wielding.

* While playing as Y.V. Shortly after you find Prince Tricky in ''VideoGame/NuclearThrone'', pressing ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', he runs off; after you deal with all the B key causes Sharpclaw in the screen area, he'll teach you the Heel command, which calls him to slightly shake while an air horn sound plays.you if he's capable of getting there. This is primarily useful if you told him to Stay on the wrong spot, or if he's busying himself growling at enemies when you want him to execute a Sidekick Skill.



* ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'': Pushing down on the right analogue stick will cause Fiona to yell for Hewie. It starts as a gentle "Hewie!" in normal circumstances, becomes a harsher "HEWIE!" when a stalker is around, and turns straight into "'''HELP!'''" when she is in Panic Mode.

* In ''{{Swat4}}'', pressing the use button with no context makes you yell at a suspect to drop the weapon and get down. You ''must'' do this for every suspect you see or lose points for unauthorized use of deadly force should they resist.

* The ''{{VideoGame/Tribes}}'' series had dozens of voice commands you can use in a well-designed system to communicate without a microphone. V-F-D stands for "defend the flag!" (V = voice, F = flag-related commands, D = defend.) At the end of a round, you'll hear a lot of V-G-C-G "good game!" (V = voice, G = global, goes to both teams, C = compliments, G = good game.) The most famous of these is V-G-S, "[[MorkAndMindy shazbot!]]" In ''Tribes 2'', bots would react to whatever the player said using voice commands if they were looking at the bot, so telling a bot to V-D-F (Defend the flag!) would cause them switch to defense, or flat out tell you "no".

* Hunting for Ames in ''MetalGearSolid2'' is done by pushing Triangle with the Directional Microphone equipped, causing Raiden to ask "You're Ames, aren't you?". There's just the one inflection, but if you spam it repeatedly Raiden's questions will get increasingly bored ("I bet you're not Ames either."). Perhaps {{Lampshaded}} by the fact that there's a parrot who can learn to say the phrase if you spam it at it enough times.
