* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'', Carl "CJ" Johnson, the player character is tutored by his older brother and Grove Street gang mentor Sweet on how to recruit fellow Grove Street foot soldiers for additional firepower to back CJ up when swarmed with enemy gang members. This forms a {{Chekhovs Skill}}, as it is introduced fairly early during the first Los Santos phase, but then not utilized in story missions until late in the game, when endgame events take CJ back to Los Santos after having completed the San Fiero and Las Venturas story arcs. Completing story missions earns CJ [[AllianceMeter "respect"]] which can be used to recruit up to seven additional Grove Street members, which comes in useful when trying to contest gang territory with the rival Ballas gang.

* ''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.

* The former TropeNamer was ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'''s "[[MemeticMutation Press X to Jason]]," which has you pressing "X" to call for your missing son. It was renamed because Pressing X to Jason (or Ethan) doesn't do anything mechanically.
