* ''Film/TheCannonballRun'' showed that Rousing Speeches can be funny:
-->''Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to welcome you to what's sometimes been called an automotive counterpart to the Bay of Pigs. I'd just like to say that you are easily the most distinguished group of highway scofflaws and degenerates ever gathered together in one place. Of course you know that certain skeptics note that as soon as we begin, thirty thousand of the nation's most alert highway patrolmen will be out there waiting to stop you guys. But let's stay positive. Think of the fact that not one state of the fifty has the death penalty for speeding...although I'm not so sure about Ohio. You'll be given a card like this. You'll punch out when you start and you'll punch in when you reach the Portofino Inn in Redondo Beach. The difference between those two times will be your time across the country. The record stands at thirty-two hours, fifty-one minutes, and believe it or not, those guys did break the fifty-five mile an hour limit. Now let's get that first car up here and let's get this show on the road.''

* Dave Miller gives one to his team at the start of ''VideoGame/ManiacMansion'':
-->''Okay, this is the old mansion. I'm sure I saw Doctor Fred take Sandy here. And it's up to us to get her out. This could be real dangerous. If anyone wants to back out..''
** The responses (from the kids chosen):
-->'''Sid:''' Let's do it!\\
'''Wendy:'''''(says nothing)''\\
'''Michael:''' Hey, did you guys see that movie on television last night? [[BadOmenAnecdote These four kids went into this strange house and...uh, never mind.]]\\
'''Razor:''' I heard Doctor Fred was kinda cute.\\
'''Bernard:''' Okay, I'm outta here! ''(goes to leave)'', '''Dave:''' Bernard, don't be a tunahead! This is Sandy we're talking about! ({{Beat}}), '''Bernard:''' Okay.\\
'''Jeff:''' I thought we were going to the beach.
*** "Alright, let's go rescue Sandy!"

--> We've found it, Commander - Kane's temple and base of operations. This field operative's covert transmission came to us live just five minutes ago, so there's no doubt that Kane's inside. He's surrounded himself with his own crack militia. Getting to him... won't be easy. Ironic, isn't it? Kane's planted his temple just outside of Sarajevo. If that sounds familiar, it's because that's where another madman started WorldWarOne. And here we are, trying to stop this madman from doing it again. Commander, there is to be no quarter given. No leniency in dealing with Kane and his zealots. Wipe his temple off the face of the earth. Destroy the bastard!... Or prepare to die trying.

*** Owing to the Victorian theme of the Gilneans overall, it's fairly obvious that Greymane's speech is a ShoutOut to WinstonChurchill...

* At the climax of TheBalladOfTheWhiteHorse, [[AlfredTheGreat Alfred's]] [[DarkestHour army is routing, his heroes are dead]], and the enemy has given up chasing them to just loot, sacrificing all discipline to do. This is the trigger for him failing to give into despair and instead making an epic rousing speech, starting with, "Brothers in arms, on *this* side lies the foe," before turning into a speech that amounts to "we'll die whatever we do, so let's kill a lot of them before we do." It works.

* ''Literature/KingsOfTheWyld'': Gabe gives one at [[spoiler:the War Fair to convince every mercenary present--and therefore nearly all of the mercenaries ''in the world''--to follow him through a portal to Castia to save the city and his daughter]]. [[ItMakesSenseInContext And he gives this speech through a pinecone]].

* [[TheHero Rean Schwarzer]] in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' has a habit of delivering these that his friends and classmates wonder how he even manages to even put on a straight face whenever he says these things.

* From ''AVeryPotterSequel'', when everything looks bad and the [[strike:PowerTrio]] Power Quartet can't even summon a single happy thought to fight off the army of Dementors, and as Ron says, "there is absolutely ''no way'' we can win!"

** Sam gives an epic one in the penultimate episode of Season 12, to rally the other American hunters for a showdown with the [[KnightTemplar British Men of Letters]]:
-->'''Sam''': I called you here because people, um, our people are being slaughtered and we're next. The British Men of Letters -— they came here because they thought they could do our job better than we could. And they helped us with their flashy gear and their tech. Most of you had the good sense to turn them down. They said they wanted the same thing we wanted, you know? A world free of monsters. That's not what they really wanted. They want control. They wanna live in a world where they can sit in some office and decide who gets to live and who gets to die. And they've killed people, they've killed innocent people, just because they got in the way. They think the ends justify the means, but we know better. We know hunting isn't just about killing. It's about doing what's right, even when it's hard. So we go by our gut, right? We play by our own rules. And that scares them. That's why they want us dead—because we're the one thing they can't control.
-->'''Roy''': So what do you want from us?
-->'''Sam''': I want you to follow me. [[StormingTheCastle Take the fight to them, to hit them before they hit us]]. We go in fast and hard and we fight. And we beat them down until they give up or until they're dead. Look, they are well-trained and well-armed; some of us might not make it back. But we will win. We will take down the bad guys because that's what we do. They're scared of us -— yeah, good. They should be.
