Listen up, TVTropes! I can't believe you guys forgot about me, the {{slogan}}-yelling megaphone guy, the most important part of any large public demonstration! How are people supposed to know what we're mad about? [[WavingSignsAround Wave signs around]]? That's lame! Noise is where it's at, the louder the better!

* The 1982 film ''Who Dares Wins'' (aka ''The Final Option'') opens with an anti-nuclear march during which a man brandishing a megaphone (later revealed to be a government undercover agent) is shot in the throat by a crossbow bolt.

* Reg Shoe from ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' is the go-to guy for protests. He explains the basics of sloganeering in ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'':
-->'It's got to have bounce. And rhythm. Like "Whadda we want? Dum-dee-dum-dee. When do we want it? Now!" See? You need one simple demand. Let's try it again. Whadda we want?'
-->The watchmen looked at one another, no one quite wanting to be the first.
-->'Another drink?' someone volunteered.
-->'Yeah!' said someone at the back. 'When do we want it? NOW!'
** Actually mostly averted in ''Discworld/NightWatch''. Reg does shout "You can take our lives but you'll never take our freedom!" just before he gets killed, but most of the "rebels" are just ordinary people trying to keep themselves safe behind their barricade. They do come up with "Truth, Justice, Freedom, [[BandOfBrothels Reasonably-Priced Love]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And A Hard-Boiled Egg]]" but nobody shouts it.
