* David from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' after he is trapped as a rat.
* An [[{{Narm}} unintentionally hilarious]] example is seen at the end of Marianne Curley's ''The Key'', where Ethan screams it after [[spoiler:his true love Rochelle [[TakingTheBullet takes a magic arrow to the chest for him]]]]. Rochelle, who is narrating the story and using present tense, is able to tell us that the last thing she hears before she dies is Ethan screaming "Nooooo!"
* In the first ''WildCards'' book (from 1986), Dr. Tachyon shrieks ''"Noooooooooooooooooo!"'' when [[spoiler: he believes he has failed to prevent his friend Angelface from being shot.]]
* In George R. R. Martin's ''[[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire A Clash of Kings]]'' ship-captain Davos Seaworth unleashes one of these during [[spoiler: the bloody naval assault on King's Landing, when he realizes that one of the other attacking ships is about to set off a particularly nasty trap.]]
* The ''GauntsGhosts'' novel ''The Guns of Tanith'' uses this at the climax when [[spoiler: Mkoll kills Sagittar Slaith.]]
* This trope, among other things, robbed [[spoiler:Oz's death]] in ''The Lake House'' of [[{{Narm}} much of its impact.]]
* To expand on the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' examples in the Film section:
** Professor [=McGonagall=] gets a big "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" towards the end of ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows The Deathly Hallows]]'', when she sees Hagrid carrying [[spoiler:what she thinks is Harry's lifeless body]]. But don't worry, [[spoiler: he gets better.]]
** Ron also gets an [[NarmCharm adorably melodramatic]] one in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban''. Between that and the all-caps "AAAAAAARGH" he gets immediately preceding his Big No, the stretched-out drama takes up an entire line on the page.
** Ron gets another one in ''Deathly Hallows'' [[spoiler: after he hears Bellatrix give Greyback permission to kill Hermione.]]
* ''Starcraft: Ghost: Nova''. The title character does one of these every other page, just about. The other pages, somebody else fills in for her.
* In ''Literature/WarriorCats'', Bluestar (then Bluepaw) bursts into one of these when [[spoiler:her mother is killed in battle]], complete with eight O's.
* In ''Literature/TheHobbit'', Gandalf tells Bilbo about Beorn and says that he is a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting 'skin-changer.']] Bilbo expresses his thoughts by asking whether he meant 'furrier', to which Gandalf responds: 'Good gracious heavens, no, no, NO, '''NO!''''
* In ''TheBelgariad'', Ce'Nedra lets one out upon discovering that she has to marry Garion. Right in the middle of his AwesomeMomentOfCrowning.
* ''[[Literature/TheImmortals In The Realms of the Gods]]'' has [[spoiler: [[NobleDemon Rikash]]]] making a HeroicSacrifice, which Daine witnesses.
--> "''[[spoiler: Rikash]] - no!'' someone cried in a voice that cracked as it rose. "''No! No! NOOOOO!''" It was her voice. If she screamed loud enough, long enough, he would live. She hadn't realized that he meant something to her. [[Tearjerker/TortallUniverse She hadn't realized he was her friend]]."
* Fandomar gets one with multiple "N"s in ''Literature/GalaxyOfFear'', when she sees that TheVirus has escaped. Though she doesn't ''tell'' anyone that that's what the empty room means.
* Subverted in ''[[Literature/TheAdversaryCycle Nightworld]]''. The UltimateEvil shouts this when the hero stabs him with a magic sword, but then laughs and reveals he was just playing with him, as he's [[NothingCanStopUsNow now too powerful to be harmed]].
* {{Defied}} by Literature/CiaphasCain in ''Caves of Ice'', at least according to his narration, when he's asked about whether his group should examine a tunnel probably leading to some Necrons: "'No.' It took all the self-control I could muster to sound calm and collected, instead of screaming the word."
