[[caption-width-right:320:[[SayMyName MENDOZAAAAAAAA!]]]]

A [[CameraTricks Camera Trick]] where the camera is placed directly over the actor, pointing down, while the actor looks up into the camera and screams. For extra [[LargeHam hamtacularity]], the camera may even be [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning]] or panning upward.

This can be done to show intense anguish in the character, implying that they are screaming at the sky because there is nothing on the planet to hold responsible, possibly cursing [[RageAgainstTheHeavens some deity]]. This is especially likely if they are screaming phrases rather than pure noise.

If the cause for this is as simple as [[ComicalOverreacting running out of Cheesy snacks]], the trope immediately becomes comedic.

Showing something like this from the ''front'' results in a VolumetricMouth. See also BigNo, TheScream, SayMyName, and DeathWail. Often accompanied by MilkingTheGiantCow and SmiteMeOMightySmiter. Do not confuse with [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]].

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Anime/CodeGeass:'' Happens a lot, [[LargeHam usually with Lelouch]]. From Turn 17: [[spoiler: "YOU BETRAYED ME, SUZAKU...! YOU BETRAAAAYED MEE!!"]]
* ''GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex.'' [[spoiler:Batou when the Major is apparently killed.]] His friends mock him for it afterwards by threatening to bring up a satellite picture of him doing it.
* Used by Hayate with the BigNo in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha A's'' after [[spoiler:[[UnequalPairing Vita]] getting executed in front of her [[BreakTheCutie breaks her thoroughly]]]].
* Ed in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'': "QUIT JERKING ME AROOOOOOOOOUND!"
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. "ANIKIIIIIII!"
** [[spoiler: "NIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"]]
* In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', Myotismon unexpectedly did this once with a fit of maniacal laughter. [[NightmareFuel Lovely face that guy has...]]
* Lord Darcia in ''Anime/WolfsRain'' after his lover dies.
%%* One happens in the final arc of ''Manga/SailorMoon''. Doubles as a BigNo.
* ''GundamSeedDestiny'': Shinn's entire family has just died, and the opening hasn't even played. Insert multi-angled scream of anguish. And ''again'' when [[spoiler: Stellar]] dies. [[TraumaCongaLine Poor guy]].
** Setsuna in ''{{Gundam 00}}'' is [[TheStoic not usually prone to these]] but even he does this trope when he fails to save [[spoiler:Lockon]]: he is seen [[AlasPoorYorick holding Lockon's targeting sight in his Gundam's hand]], shedding ManlyTears while muttering Lockon's name then finally releasing an inarticulate scream of grief. In the second season, [[BrokenBird Louise]] is the one delivering this trope when she [[FreakOut realizes]] successfully taking revenge for her family also made her a killer, slowly turning her TearsOfJoy into ones of OhCrap.
* [[GreatTeacherOnizuka "OOOOOOONNNIIIZUKAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!"]]
* Combined with SayMyName in VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi's second arc, at a point where Battler's kind of gone to [[BreakTheCutie the end of his rope]]. "BEATORIIIIIIIIIIIICHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!"
* [[Manga/{{Akira}} "KANEEEEEEEEEEEEDAAAAAAA!"]] [[SayMyName "TETSUOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"]] [[MemeticMutation "KANEEEEEEEEEDAAAAAAAAA!!!"]]
* Tiny Luffy (heartbreakingly) in ''OnePiece'' ch.588: [[spoiler: SABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!]]
** And of course, [[spoiler: [[KilledOffForReal AAACEE!!!!!!!]]]]
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Komamura does this ("AIZEN!!") after [[spoiler:Tousen's death]].
** Kenpachi does this after [[spoiler:realizing he killed Unohana]].
** Incidentally, Ichigo actually has a non-tragic one after he defeats [[AloofBigBrother Byakuya]] [[KnightTemplar Kuchiki]]. When a greatly-wounded and worn-out Byakuya walks away and concedes that Ichigo had finally won, and that he wouldn't hunt down [[ActionGirl Rukia]] for execution anymore, Ichigo looks up to the sky while the camera pans up away from him, as he let's out a primal, victorious scream to the heavens. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], considering how far he'd come and what he had achieved.
* Fakir in ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' "AHIRUUUUUU!!!!!!"
* Several anime (RanmaOneHalf springs to mind as an example) combine the Skyward Scream with some kind of reaction elsewhere, especially when the scream is either a curse (usually causing the subject to react, such as by sneezing) or a BattleCry (in which case, someone may slip or accidentally break something).
* Wolfram von Bielefeld in the WhamEpisode of KyouKaraMaou: his beloved king was last reported in this church which has since burnt down--but all anyone can find in the ruins is the lonely severed arm of the dedicated once-beloved brother he's been rejecting for years. Cue scream of frustration.
** Also cue CharacterDevelopment. Like anything. It's also after this that he reverts to referring to Conrad by name, which he apparently hasn't done since he was a little kid and found out niisan was half human.
* "[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion I don't wanna die]]. [[SurvivalMantra I don't wanna die.]] [[MadnessMantra I don't wanna die.]] ''[[DespairEventHorizon I don't want to die.]]'' '''I DON'T WANNA DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEE!!!!!'''"
* Non angsty example in ''{{No6}}''. Sion during the storm in episode 1.
* Happens an awful lot in ''Manga/InuYasha'', mostly from the title character.
** A wordless variant happens in the second movie, complete with spinning camera.
* At the end of ''ArashinoYoruNi'', Gabu the wolf actually does this after he and his sheep friend Mei are now together again and that the Moon is rising right in front of them for the first time.
* Mitsunari in the ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' movie. He's already had his ThisIsUnforgivable rant, so he just screams.
* [[{{Bakugan}} "DRAGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"]]
** [[spoiler: "WAYVERRRRRRRRRRRRNNNN!!!"]]
* TransformersCybertron: [[spoiler: ''(after being soundly [[FaceHeelTurn betrayed]] and imprisoned by his backstabbing second-in-command)'']] Megatron: ''[[TheStarscream STARSCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAM!!!!!!]]''
* Pushed UpToEleven in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' to the point you could instigate a DrinkingGame! Notables:
** "HURRY, GOKU!!!"
** "PICOLOOOOO!!!"
** "CHIAOTZUUUU!!!"
** "YOU'RE ''DEAAAAAAAAAD!!!!'' WHEN I FIND YOU, I'LL ''KILL'' YOU!!!!" (Vegeta, realizing he's been duped out of getting the rest of the Dragon Balls by Krillin and Gohan, when they were inches away from him)
** And let's not forget [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmELlqjR5Ao this gem:]]
*** ''"I'M RECOOOOME!!"''
*** ''"BURTERRRRRR!!"''
*** ''"OI! JEICE!!"''
*** ''"GULDOOOO!!"''
*** ''"CAPTAAIN GINYUUU!!!"''
*** ''"[[QuirkyMinibossSquad NOW YOU SEE THE POWER... OF THE GINYU FORCE!!!]]"''
* '''''[[Manga/DeathNote MATSUDA,]] [[GambitPileup YOU]] [[WhatAnIdiot IDIOOOOOOOOT!!!]]'''''
* MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch blows the pants off this trope in the last episodes of the first season. LUCHIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
* Done for comedic effect in episode 4 of ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'', when Oscar comes across Zenigata unconscious and covered in blood. Lupin had just sprayed fake blood all over the Inspector, and Oscar had inadvertently knocked him out by coming out of the trapdoor ''just'' as Lupin escaped.
* Haruka of ''Manga/KotouraSan'' does this during the DownerBeginning in the GrayRainOfDepression when [[spoiler:the mean old lady sends the stray cat to an animal shelter (effectively a death sentence in Japan)]]. Made even more poignant since the scene itself becomes silent as the GriefSong swells over.
* ''Franchise/KagerouProject'': One of these is performed by [[spoiler:Mary]], when [[spoiler:[[GroundhogDayLoop Kuroha kills all of her friends at the end of each timeloop]]]]. They're usually drowned out by the background music, but that somehow makes it even more disturbing.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* '''''[[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom RICHAAAAARDS!!!!!]]'''''
** And recently, [[TheHulk BAAANNNNERR!]]
* This ''StrangersInParadise'' [[http://comicbookdb.com/graphics/comic_graphics/1/3/1157_20050923163623_large.jpg cover]].
* Also in ComicBook/{{Cerebus}}.
** CLAREMONT!!!!!!!!!
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''Fanfic/AceCombatTheEquestrianWar'', [[TheHeroine Rainbow Dash]] unleashes a chilling scream by the end of chapter 11, reason being [[spoiler: Gilda betraying her trust and breaking Medley's wings]].
* Blackjack gets a great one in ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestriaProjectHorizons'' at the end of a HeroicRROD.
* ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'': [[OriginalCharacter Cruise Control]] pulls several of these off, most accompained by a BigNo. It's all PlayedForLaughs, as he uses them to chastise himself [[ComicalOverreacting for committing petty mistakes]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxF3kNmJ7tk Famously]] in ''Film/{{Superman}}''.
* Aragorn, in ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Two Towers]]''. In a rare [[ThrowItIn unscripted version]], where Viggo Mortenson broke his foot on the helmet he kicked, eliciting a cry of real ''physical'' pain that fit the scene well enough that Peter Jackson kept it in.
* '''[[Film/FlashGordon GORDON'S]] [[{{BRIAN BLESSED}} ALIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!]]''' is sometimes misremembered as an example. In fact, the line was delivered with restraint. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFnmT82yGpk See it here]].
* For some reason, people think that Kirk screaming "KHAAAAAAN!" in ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan Star Trek II]]'' was [[BeamMeUpScotty like this]]. It wasn't (it's a close-up of Kirk's face if you're wondering, cutting to a long shot of the moon he's on/in), but parodies of it do this. The misconception is prevalent enough that this trope was formerly '''named''' TheKhan despite '''The''' "KHAAAAAAN!" not actually being an example.
** The 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' movie has an actual example of this trope, though - Nero screaming "SPOOOOOOOOOOOCK!" during his VillainousBreakdown. This interrupts Nero beating the stuffing out of Alternate-Kirk, who sits up with a faint glimmer of recognition as Nero launches into it.
** The "KHAAAAN" in the new movie is an example of it, however.
* One does this in ''Film/TheCityOfLostChildren''.
* John Belushi's character screaming after the beer bar is taken away in ''AnimalHouse''.
* Iconic movie example: In the film adaptation of ''AStreetcarNamedDesire'', just after realizing the error of his ways, Stanley Kowalski (Marlon Brando) screams out in the rain. The "STELLA! STELL-LLAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!" is done with this camera angle and has become one of the most famous one-word lines in movie history.
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' does this in the second movie, ''Dead Man's Chest'': "Damn you, Jack... SSSPARRROOOWWWWW!!!!" complete with the pullaway camera angle from above (and Davy Jones spraying seawater).
* Performed by Cindy (Anna Faris' character) at the end of every one of the ''ScaryMovie'' series, although usually punctuated by her [[LookBothWays being run over]].
* Bartleby does this near the end of ''[[TheViewaskewniverse Dogma]]'' while laughing maniacally.
* In Baz Luhrmann's ''Film/WilliamShakespearesRomeoAndJuliet'', the line "I am... FORTUNE'S FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!" gets this treatment.
* "WILLIAAAAAMMM!" William Thatcher also does this, screaming his own name, at the end of ''A Knight's Tale''. Not quite skyward, though.
* Parodied in the movie ''Film/CharliesAngels'' with Matt Leblanc howling "DAMN YOU, SALAZAAAR!" at the soaring camera while his girlfriend lies dead in his arms. [[spoiler:And then we find out they're shooting [[ShowWithinAShow a movie within the movie]].]]
** [[spoiler: Don't forget that the scene takes place at the end of a montage showing the romantic B-plots of the other two angels, furthering the assumption that the girlfriend is Lucy Liu.]]
* ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'' combines it with DistantReactionShot.
* The ''MyFavoriteMartian'' [[TheMovie movie]] does a variant of this, as it is executed during [[BigBad Elliot Coleye's]] EvilLaugh at the height of [[spoiler:his OneWingedAngel act (initiated by one of the Martians' "nerplex")]].
* ''Film/XMen'':
** In ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' Logan also does this in flashback following a shriek/roar of horror that is exactly how anyone would react to waking up in a tank of water with no memories and having metel claws shoot out of your hands.
** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'', where Wolverine does this [[spoiler: after reluctantly killing Jean Grey/Phoenix.]]
** This was done ''three times'' in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''.
** In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Xavier does this right after [[spoiler:a bullet enters his spine]].
** In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', Blink lets out a small cry towards the heavens after [[spoiler:being stabbed by three Sentinels]].
* [[Film/{{Braveheart}} FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!]]
* In ''Detroit Rock City'', school security mook Elvis does this when the boys cross the school property line and leave the range of his powers.
* [[JungledyretHugo RIIIIIIIIIIITAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!]]
* ''Film/StarWars Episode III'': Upon hearing news of the [[spoiler: death of his wife]], Darth Vader proclaims to the sky, "[[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!]]"
** Source of internet meme the "Nooo-lercoaster"
** [[TranslationTrainWreck Translation]]: [[RecursiveTranslation DO NOT WANT!]]
* The end of ''TheMist'' features this from the main character; Might be more of a BigNo.
* JenniferLoveHewitt in ''Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'' screaming: "WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOOORRRR?!?!?!?!
* "'''[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles DAAAAAAAMN!!!]]'''"
* '''''[[RainMan SON OF A BITCH!!!]]'''''
* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Part 2'', [[spoiler:Voldemort does this in his death scene. The effect of the rebounding death curse starts to disintegrate him, and he lets out a last, haunting scream as he turns to the sky and breaks up into nothing.]]
* Ivan's reaction to his father's death in ''Film/IronMan2''.
* ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet4TheDreamMaster''. After Kincaid witnesses Freddy's resurrection in the car graveyard dream, he tries to escape but is then cornered. He screams towards the sky, trying to signal his friends that Freddy is back, as the camera pans out to reveal that the graveyard covers the whole planet.
* "I WANT SPIDER-MAN!" from ''Film/SpiderMan2''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' featured this once, with Xena, in the episode "The Ring".
--> '''Xena:''' ... who am I? WHO AM I?!?!
* ''{{Seinfeld}}'' parodied this three times. The first time was George yelling "KHAAAAAAN!" after realizing his life must be dedicated to the Susan Ross foundation.[[note]]This is just after Jerry told how he had inspired Susan's parents to start the foundation with a line from The Wrath of Khan.[[/note]] The second time was Elaine yelling "SUUUUUUUUUUZIE!" after realizing her life must be dedicated to the Susie foundation, a fake character she initially made up to avoid troubles and later "killed" her to avoid exposure. The third time was George screaming "TWIIIIIIIIIX!!" after people ate up his candy lineup, which he set up to catch his candy's thief in a car dealership.
* The Klingon death ritual first seen in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' invokes this, roaring into the sky to warn the afterlife that a Klingon warrior is on their way.
* Jon Stewart does this a ''lot'' on ''Series/TheDailyShow,'' and was especially gratified when the [[http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/index.jhtml?videoId=111992&title=the-wrath-of-khan scientist found to be supplying rogue regimes with nuclear technology was actually named A.Q. Khan]]. They once even subverted/[[http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/index.jhtml?videoId=149372&title=9/11-earwig failed to do the shot]].
--> "How does a glissando make sense there? Am I introducing a toaster?"
** A great recent example was Stewart switching bodies with Music/JustinBieber. When they switched back, Bieber told Stewart, "Hope you don't mind the new tattoo."
--> Stewart: Did he say something about a tattoo? And why is my ass sore? *cut to screencap of Stewart's tattoo* '#neversaynever'?! *cut back to Stewart* BIEBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!
* Duncan does this once in ''Series/{{Highlander}}: The Series'', when he screams [[spoiler: Darius]]'s name after finding his dead body.
* Like Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert of ''Series/TheColbertReport'' also has engaged in this trope occasionally. ("MANILOWWWWWW!!!")
** Also "RAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIINNNNN!!!"
*** "BENNEEEEEEEETT!!!"
**** "RICKLLLLLLLLLES!!!"
***** "Vigoda?"
* [[Series/KingdomHospital "THERE WILL BE REPRISALS FOR THIS! REPRISAAAAAAALS!"]]
* Along those same lines, who can forget Conan O'Brien's tortured scream... ''"BOOOLLTEEEENN!"''
** And again, when he realizes he [[UnrequitedLove cannot have]] Rebecca Romijn-Stamos. ''"STAAAAUGH-MOS!"''
* Wade in the first season finale of ''{{Sliders}}'': NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
%% If we use the ptitle for a pothole, no one can know what it links to without clicking on it.
* ''Series/ThirtyRock'': "I GAVE MY WHOLE LIFE TO PORN! AND HE DOES IT IN ONE DAY!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis ONE!! DAY!!!"]]
* In the TV movie finale of PrisonBreak, T-Bag does this. "SCOOFIEEELD! SCOOOOOOOOOFIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELD!"
* Parodied in an episode of ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway?'' During a game of Weird Newswcasters (in which the comedians had to portray certain characters while being in a newscast), Ryan (the weatherman) was assigned a character of a self-centered actor about to give his "Oscar-worthy performance". Ryan finished off his bit with his character bellowing his last line as he looked up towards an overhead camera--while ''he'' spun instead of the camera. The audience burst out into applause at the end. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOCJcFy6QsQ View the whole game here (Ryan's performance starts at around 2:40)]]
* ''Series/{{Riget}}'': Danish... Scum... DANISH SCUM!
* Used in an episode of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. After realizing that Creator/WilWheaton tricked him into losing a card game, Sheldon screams "WHEATON!" as the camera zooms out. A somewhat odd example, in that the moment [[ShownTheirWork resembles the actual scene from The Wrath of Khan instead of the Beam Me Up Scotty version.]]
* ''BoyMeetsWorld'' has Cory scream this way when he suffers from a ''very bad hairdo''. Worse for him is the fact that he still has to go to school that day -- without being permitted to wear a hat inside the school building.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': "[[TitleDrop This is not happening]]! [[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!]]"
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': "GERONIMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
** [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome I AM TALKING!]]
** "WHOOO.... AM.... IIIIIIIIIII?!?!"
* In the classic "Dreams" episode of ''Series/{{MASH}}'', each main character's nap is disturbed by nightmares. Hawkeye's ends with him [[spoiler: staring helplessly at a bleeding Korean girl, armless, as a patient-loaded helicopter flies low overhead,]] ending with a bloodcurdling [[BigNo No]].
* Done twice on ''Series/{{Dexter}}'', both involving the [[spoiler:serial-killers-o'-the-season]]: in season three there's a "MIGUEEEEEELL!", complete with [[BerserkButton room-smashing]] [[spoiler:although it was revealed he was just imagining how he'd like to react]], and in season four, after [[spoiler:the Trinity Killer evades his clutches once again]], "ARRTHURRRR!"
* Used in ''I Shouldn't Be Alive'', to emphasize a stranded survivor's isolation as they yell for help and the camera zooms out to show they're alone in the midst of hostile terrain.
* ''{{Smallville}}'': Lex does one at the end of the episode "Persona" after [[spoiler:his hired assassin informs him of successfully murdering Grant Gabriel, a clone that he created of his dead younger brother Julian, who turned his back on him for Lionel.]] This normally would have counted as his MoralEventHorizon, but because of the grief and regret that he showed by doing this, he was still considered at least a little sympathetic among most fans.
* {{Series/Merlin}} screams desperately for help from [[spoiler: the Great Dragon]] when [[spoiler: Arthur is dying]] in the GrandFinale.
* ''Series/TheLegendOfWilliamTell'' Will finds himself brooding over his parents' death for no apparent reason.
-->Will: They will be ''AVEEEEEEEENNNNNGGGGGEEEEEEEDDDDDDD!''
* ''Gotham'' features one in the first few minutes of the pilot from a young [[{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]] after he and his parents are confronted by a mugger in a dark alley and...well, [[EverybodyKnowsThat you know the rest.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The whole process is described in ''Razorblade Sigh'' by Music/GammaRay.
* Simple Plan's ''Untitled'' music video has the singer perform a skyward scream during, appropriately enough, the lyrics "I just wanna SCREEEEEEAAAAAAAAMMMM!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* Used by the Joker in ''MortalKombat vs. DCUniverse'''s DC story mode after [[{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] tells Comicbook/{{Superman}} and the four DC villains the name of the OriginalGeneration BigBad (Dark Kahn, a merger of DC's Darkseid and MK's Shao Kahn). Though the camera is above him, it cuts [[RuleOfThree thrice]], each one more distanced from him (and echoing his voice) rather than pulling away smoothly. Then Deathstroke tells him to shut up.
* The first major turning point in ''StarOcean3'' ends with Fayt screaming "WHAT THE HELL AM I!?!?!"
* ''SuperMarioGalaxy'''s [[spoiler: WELCOME! WELCOME NEEW GAAAAAALLAAAAAAXXXYYYYYY!!!]]
* In ''Warcraft 3'' in the scene when [[spoiler: Grom Hellscream kills Mannoroth]] there are some pretty dramatic screams, that however being wordless don't quite qualify as [[BigNo Big Nos]], and at the end of the scene, following [[spoiler: Grom's death]], a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luuUE0x7-TY very powerful Khan Scream]].
** [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft "AAARTHAAAS!!!"]]
* [[OsuTatakaeOuendan OOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEENNNNNNDDDDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNN!]]

*** Dude even gets ''fireworks'' in his SkywardScream!
* [[RyuGaGotoku Yakuza 3]]: [[spoiler:"RIKIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!"]]
* Haseo from the ''DotHackGU'' games whenever he unleashes his hidden powers.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV DS'', during the disaster at Mist, Cecil does a textbook one.
--> '''Kain:''' "He wished this village ''torched!''"\\
'''Cecil:''' "But why? '''''WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!'''''"
* At the end of ''VideoGame/CrisisCore'', [[spoiler:Cloud, after Zacks death.]]
* PlayedForLaughs in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks''. Zelda, now a wandering spirit, learns that TheDragon is going to use her body as a vessel for the BigBad. Her reaction? She flies up and screams right at the camera.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'': '''''UZUUUUUUUKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!'''''
* The ending(s) of the original ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'', after the PlayerCharacter [[spoiler: jams Diablo's soulstone into their own forehead.]]

** LAAAWREEEENCE! might also count, but without the camera angle.
* Iori lets out one in the anime opening of Dreamcast-only ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters The King of Fighters 1999 Dream Match]]''. We don't hear his voice, but the image is there.
* In ''VideoGame/OverBlood'' Raz shouts [[spoiler: Pipo's name like this when he "dies" (he is a robot)]].
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', when [[spoiler: Roxas, upon discovering that all of his memories are fake, that he has no right to exist, and that to restore Sora's memories and wake him up, Roxas must be sacrificed. He attempts to attack [=DiZ=] for putting him through all of it, only to find out that he ''isn't even in the room'', just showing him a projection of himself. Roxas's anger, despair, and frustration reaches a boiling point there, and he just screams.]] Poor kid has gone through some serious sh*t.
* [[HeavyRain SHAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUN!!]]
* Garlot of ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'' is prone enough to doing this (sans corny camerawork) that the game developers saw fit to give him an ''actual dialogue portrait'' devoted to passionate yelling.
* ''DeadRising'': At the end of Overtime Mode, [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKwvdIDq3Ck#t=3m11s Frank belts out a fantastic scream, complete with camera pan and spin.]] ]]
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', Genis does this when [[spoiler:he and Lloyd realize the monster they just killed was actually his friend Marble.]]
* The Safe ending of ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' has Junpei doing this. [[spoiler:KANNNNNYYYYY!!!]]
** Also [[spoiler:Ace's "ZEEEEEROOOOOOOOOOO!!!"]] in the same ending
* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' RPG characters are known to do this when performing their signature LimitBreak attacks.
* In ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'', Sergeant Cortez lets out a furious 'Urgh... Gawd-DAAAAAAAMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!' after unwittingly giving the Big Bad the details of his plot. This takes place in the middle of the 21st century, but the skyward scream is so intense, it echoes through time, being heard by ally Harry Tipper in 1970, and a man implied to be Tipper's elderly son. Bonus points for the implication that Tipper is at the point of conceiving said son.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' wrings a BigNo from [[spoiler: Eoleo]] this way during the [[spoiler: Grave Eclipse, when his father dies of monster-inflicted wounds.]]
* [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Ieyasu...I will...KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILL YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU!!!!]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. [[spoiler:"FIOOOORAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy XIII-2}}'': [[spoiler: SEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!]]
* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'': Asura gets in on this one a few times, though it's actually rather rare that we see him doing so. His SkywardScream for his wife is a single howl of rage and grief, though he does scream his daughter Mithra's name out as he goes to rescue her. [[spoiler: However, when a human girl who looks like Mithra dies in front of him, he has a long moment where he seems like he can't breathe OR scream, and then the overhead view of the trope comes into play and very bad things happen to very bad people.]]
* [[VideoGame/FableIII BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALS!]]
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYYY! (Tidus, realising that he's stranded and alone in Spira. The camera even pans upward as he yells.)
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', this gets PlayedForLaughs in the ''Mark of the Assassin DLC'', where Hawke's idea of finding a way past the Chateau guards, involves taking a massive [[ChewingTheScenery bite out of the scenery]] whilst pretending to be a [[UpperClassTwit foppish noble]], stung by a bee.
--> '''Hawke''': If I die, makes sure world knows... *''Falls to their knees''* I DIED AT CHATEAU-HAINE!
