All-Cheering All the Time
A Comedy Trope
. Cheerleaders are often shown speaking as if they were cheering in ordinary conversation. They might be doing this as a form of practice, or because they are just too stupid to know any other way of communicating. Alternatively, they might be shown cheering at inappropriate events; such as chess matches.

Anime & Manga
- Ranma ½ character Mariko Konjō, though we only ever see her when she's actively being a Combat Cheerleader so she might not talk that way in civvies. Then again, this is Ranma ½.
- When Paige was trying out for cheerleading in FoxTrot, she started using cheers all the time; including while giving a (correct) answer to a question on The Scarlet Letter in English class.

- In Zits, a group of cheerleaders use cheers to encourage Pierce to put some litter in the bin, causing him to remark that "There is such a thing as too much school spirit".
