No Indoor Voice: Anime & Manga
  • Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball Z.
  • Lala Gonzales of School Rumble seems to prefer shouting as a secondary means of communication, opposed to the primary way of violence.
  • Cuba in Axis Powers Hetalia. He yells most of time when he talks.
  • Boy, people in Hellsing sure do like to yell a lot. Especially Anderson and Alucard. Especially when they're together.
  • Naruto is an egregious example of this. The title character does calm down noticably as he matures through the series; especially in Shippuden.
  • Several characters in Yu-Gi-Oh!, especially later on, due to Vocal Evolution.
    • For a prominent example in the dub, listen to Kaiba in the first episode of the edited version. Then listen to him in the uncut dub — he's a lot louder and sounds more like Brock from Pokémon (which is little surprise, as they're both voiced by Eric Stuart).
    • In the Singapore dub of the series, most of the characters (especially Yami) simply yell out all their lines. Even so, it is often preferred to the 4Kids version due to the script's closer translation of the original.
    • As seen on the quotes page, this trope is Played for Laughs in the Abridged Series.
    • The worst offender might be Espa Roba, who seems to scream every single line. Lampshaded in the abridged series with Joey saying "Stop yellin' at me!" to which Espa Roba replies "WHAT? THIS IS MY NORMAL SPEAKING VOICE!"
  • Pick a Super Robot pilot.
    • Kabuto Kouji from Mazinger Z in particular doesn't seem to know when he should be done screaming. More seen in battle though, considering that Kouji is pretty normal when talking casually. Boss on the other hand...
    • Tetsuya Tsurugi from Great Mazinger is better on this respect, and then, the latter part of the series happened and Tetsuya suddenly does this nearly ALL the time. On the other hand, Duke Fleed from UFO Robo Grendizer is pretty calmed WHEN he is out of his Humongous Mecha. When he is piloting Grendizer, though...
    • Ryoma Nagare from Getter Robo
    • Hiroshi Shiba from Kotetsu Jeeg
    • Sanshiro Tsuwabuki from Gaiking
    • Akira Hibiki from Raideen
    • Hyoma Aoi from Combattler V
    • Kenichi Go from Voltes V
    • Kazuya Ryuuzaki from Daimos
    • Kappei Jin from Zambot3
    • Banjo Haran from Daitarn3
    • Kamina from Gurren Lagann
  • Pokémon
    • In the anime, Byron, the Canalave City Gym Leader. Dan Green seems to be trying to make him the Pokémon world's answer to BRIAN BLESSED.
    • Jessie in the 4Kids dub of the anime. Also when competing in contests as "Jessilina".
    • Black of Pokémon Special is also an example, as when he's not training or helping White, he's standing around yelling he's going to win the Pokémon League.
  • Although the Digimon dub is generally a lot louder than the original, Doug Erholtz (T.K.) gets the cake. It doesn't matter how the scene is or what kind of voice tone it requires, it always seems the actor is yelling into the mic at the studio.
    • And how could we forget the Largest Ham in Digimon history, Etemon.
  • Ookiku Furikabutte: Abe is actually a little embarrassed to be told he loses all volume control when he loses his Hair-Trigger Temper.
  • One Piece
    • Tileston is apparently incapable of speaking at anything less than a shout. People are forced to accommodate this and make him stand far away when speaking to him.
    • This was largely the case of Luffy's voice actress when it was dubbed by 4Kids.
  • Schwardzwald from The Big O speaks extremely loudly, all the time.
  • Kumagawa Misogi from Medaka Box effectively speaks in ALL CAPS, all the time.
  • Domon Kasshu from Mobile Fighter G Gundam. So much.
  • In Bakuman。, Nanamine initially yells so loudly when talking on the phone with his editor, Kosugi, that people sitting near Kosugi in the editorial offices can hear him.
  • Super Atragon: Captain Hayate has volume control issues, even when issuing otherwise routine/mundane orders.
    Captain Hayate (after a battle is over & the Ra is still airborne) "GO TO SURFACE MODE!!"
  • Sengoku Basara: Sanada Freaking Yukimura. His voice seems to have two settings. The rarely-used quiet contemplation, and SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS!
  • Shou and Erika from Ginga E Kickoff have a sort of competition on who can out-loud the other.
  • Squalo from Katekyo Hitman Reborn!. Lampshaded In-Universe since he is ranked #1 loudest mafia member.
  • Everyone from the English dub of Bakugan, but especially Julie, who sounds like she's parodying her role!
  • Ginga from the English dub of Beyblade Metal Fusion. That said, almost everyone has this, or hilariously bad voice acting.
