** Nirn's Dragons are the [[PhysicalGod divine children]] of the [[TopGod chief deity]] of the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines Pantheon]], Akataosh, the Dragon God of Time. (They also may be fragments of his actual being, and serve of a role similar to being very destructive [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]].) They inherently speak a LanguageOfMagic which gives them small scale [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]] powers. Essentially, they "make real" whatever they speak in this language. For example, when a Dragon is "breathing" fire, they're technically commanding fire to come into existence, and battles between dragons are essentially very loud debates.
** In the ancient past, the Dragons and their [[ReligionOfEvil Dragon Cults]] took over much of Skyrim. Seeking a way to defeat the Dragons and their Cults, the ancient ProudWarriorRace [[HornyVikings Nords]] prayed to the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]] for aid. Their prayers were answered and they were taught how to use the language of the Dragons themselves, which they called the Thu'um (or the "Voice"). Led by the Tongues, masters of the Thu'um, the ancient Nord armies vanquished the Dragons and their Cults, then forged an Empire that covered nearly all of north Tamriel. A succession crisis would eventually tear it apart, and then the use of the Thu'um as a weapon of war dropped dramatically after their [[ShockingDefeatLegacy defeat at the Battle of Red Mountain]], following which one of those Tongues (Jurgen Windcaller) [[HeelFaithTurn founded the "Way of the Voice" to use the Thu'um only honor the gods]].

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' is the first game in the series in which the Thu'um is seen in action. The PlayerCharacter is a legendary Dragonborn (or Dovahkiin), a rare mortal blessed by Akatosh with the immortal Aedric soul of a dragon. Akatosh creates those who are Dragonborn to be the natural predators of the Dragons, being capable of ending their ResurrectiveImmortality by [[YourSoulIsMine absorbing their souls]] and using those souls to inherently master the Thu'um. After being revealed as a Dragonborn, he/she will be summoned by the Greybeards to High Hrothgar for training. When they call for the Dragonborn, ''all of Skyrim'' can hear it.

* Three words: [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim FUS RO DAH]]!
** In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' lore, some special [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Nords]] known as Tongues use a power called the Thu'um, which is used to shout with various effects ranging from sharpening swords to teleporting to wherever their shout lands. The strongest Tongues, known as the Greybeards, are said to be [[PersonOfMassDestruction so powerful that they have to gag themselves and use sign language]] in order to not destroy everything around them by simply talking.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', we actually get to use the Thu'um, where it is explained that it is literally a LanguageOfMagic that [[RealityWarper makes real whatever is spoken in it]]. The Thu'um uses the dragon language, as dragons naturally have the power to alter reality by simply speaking. When they're "breathing" fire, they're technically commanding fire to come into existence, and battles between dragons are essentially very loud debates. (Gives a new meaning to FlameWar).
*** It is explained that anyone can learn to use Thu'um, but it takes a great deal of training, mostly to learn the true meaning of the words in the shout. Anyone can try speaking it, but you need to put your soul into it for magic to happen.
** We also get to meet the Greybeards. When they call for the Dragonborn, ''all of Skyrim'' can hear it. When they whisper, it shakes the mountain they live on.
** The Dragonborn is special because s/he can use the Thu'um without any training after absorbing dragon souls, thanks to being the spirit of a dragon in a mortal coil. Technically, the Dragonborn could just casually say Shouts like 'Fus Ro Dah' or '[[WeatherManipulation Lok Vah Koor]]', but s/he always shouts them, [[RuleOfCool presumably because it sounds cooler]].
** There are also... other people who can use the Thu'um. When you see a Draugr with a pointy helmet [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast and the words "death," "over," or "lord" somewhere in its name]], ''brace yourself''. Ulfric Stormcloak can also Shout, as can Miraak, the BigBad of the ''Dragonborn'' DLC, as well as the BonusBoss known as "The Ebony Warrior."

* ''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}'' has a few attacks like this, such as Uproar, Echoed Voice, Noble Roar, Disarming Voice, Snarl, and Hyper Voice. There's even one called Round which becomes stronger if both Pokémon in a team battle do it at the same time. There are also sound-based [[StatusBuff status-affecting]] moves such as Screech and Supersonic, and the Pokémon ability Soundproof can protect a Pokémon from any sound-based attacks. Howl can boost the user's ''own'' Attack Score, while Roar can scare a wild Pokémon away or force a trainer to switch Pokémon. The evolutionary line of Whismur/Loudred/Exploud and Noibat/Noivern are also all based on this trope, and both can use the most powerful shouting attack, Boomburst.
