No Indoor Voice: Videogames
  • Disgaea: "Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!"
  • Tales Series
    Asch: DREEEEEEECK!!!
    Asch: REPLICAAAAAAA!!!!
  • In RuneScape, Yk'Lagor the THUNDEROUS.
  • TV-Head Shout Guy (a.k.a. "The Director") from Mondo Medicals. "DO YOU KNOW WHAT A CANCER IS?" Made even WORSE by the fact that his spoken "language" sounds like the result of asking a really bad voice synthesizer to say "thjedhg!!2@#@." At maximum volume.
  • Kratos from the God of War series. Though he is a man of few words, when he actually speaks he does so in such a powerful, loud voice that all of Greece can probably hear him threatening the gods with bloody death. Then again, given the size of the opponents he fights (the Colossus of Rhodes, the Hydra, he's communicated on several occasions with Titans), maybe he's just trying to make sure they don't have to strain to hear him. Regardless, Kratos can out-shout even Leonidas any day. Must be something about those Spartans... Add to that his overly dramatic dialogue and inflection and it can sound almost cheesy.
    "AAARRRREEEEEEEEEESSSSSS!"
    "ATHENA?! YOU CONSPIRE AGAINST ME?!"
    "ZEUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUS!!!!!!!!"
    "THE GODS LIED TO ME!!!"
  • Team Fortress 2: "CRY SOME MORE!!!" "HEY BOYS IT'S A SPAH!" "THIS IS MY WORLD, YOU ARE NOT WELCOME IN MY WORLD!" "THAT'S THE WAY Y'DO IT!" "GO ON, RAGE QUIT, MAKE US BOTH HAPPY!" "I AM FULLY CHARGED!" "JAA-RATE!" The only class that doesn't yell is Spy since he's supposed to be stealthy. Pyro yells, but you can't understand a word anyway.
    (Pyro lifts flame thrower over his head)"MMMMPH! MMMMMMMMMMMMPH!"
    "I AM BOOLITPROOOOOOOOOF"
    • Heck, even the Spy yells occasionally. Upon hit with Jarate: "What is this...MON DIEU!" and "I HAVE BEEN SHOWN WHO IS THE BOSS!". Upon Dominating a Medic: Laughter really is the best medicine! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!
    • About half of the Sniper's lines are whispered, which makes sense since he wouldn't want to alert potential targets while scoped in. When he dominates his enemies, though, he goes into full-on Large Ham mode.
  • In F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, Colonel Richard Vanek does not talk quietly. Even when he's talking in a "normal" tone, he's practically yelling at the top of his lungs. This is typically punctuated by lots of swearing.
  • Some demons in Shin Megami Tensei games speak in all caps when they speak.
  • BlazBlue is a World of Ham, so this is going to be present, but three characters stand out.
    "Instant Ninpo! Critical Super Crash! Hurricane Bang Kick! To rid this world of evil, I will become... the HAMMER OF JUSTICE!"
  • Captain Cid in Final Fantasy X has just two kinds of speaking: Shouting and yelling.
  • Also Fujin from Final Fantasy VIII. She speaks explicitly in ALL CAPS. And few words. For example, rather than ask "Where is Ellone?" she says "ELLONE. WHERE?" It was actually meant to translate the fact that in the original Japanese version, her speech is entirely in Sino-Japanese ideographs (i.e. no phonetic hiragana/katakana at all, which is very unusual for ordinary Japanese speech and writing).
  • Doctor N. Gin in the Radical Entertainment Crash Bandicoot games. That is all.
    "Still... no... SLIPPERS?!?!"
    "THANK YOU AGAIN!!! Hotter than the first!!"
    "NOT MY THROAT!! I need that for swallowing!! GUARDS!!"
  • Blue Dragon gives us Marumaro, whose combination of no volume control, screeching virtually all of the time, and a oddly disturbing crush on Zola makes him The Scrappy to many fans. And even if he's not, they usually agree on his voice.
  • Fallout
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon
    • THIS is LOUDRED'S Verbal TIC. He ALTERNATES between SCREAMING ALL THE TIME and JUST emphasizing random WORDS. OH, and the FLAT OUT SCREAMING tends to HAPPEN when he WAKES YOU UP EVERY MORNING.
    • Palkia LIKES TO TALK IN ALL CAPS IN A COMPLETELY SERIOUS, ANGRY, ENRAGED, IMPATIENT TONE. ALL THE TIME. HE TALKS MORE LOUDLY MORE OFTEN THAN LOUDRED!!! DIALGA DOES TOO, BUT HE HAS LESS DIALOGUE THAN PALKIA!!! IN CASE YOU HADN'T FIGURED IT OUT, PALKIA AND DIALGA HAVE LOUD, BOOMING VOICES. AND DIALGA HAS RANDOM ROARS IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS DIALOGUE.
      • In the Japanese version of the game, however, they simply speak in an archaic dialect to give off an ancient and powerful vibe instead of abusing exclamation marks.
    • Magnemite also has no indoor voice, which may be justified because they're rather machine-like.
  • World of Warcraft
    • Inverted with boss dialogues which are shown as "X yells Y," yet the actual audio files are (generally) spoken at a normal level.
    • Played straight just as often, however, with many bosses and NPCs relentlessly roaring their dialogue at the top of their lungs.
    "AAARRRTHAAASSS!"
  • In Pokémon X and Y, Essentia's dialogue is written in all caps. It's hard tell if she's yelling or if it's just to point out that her helmet is digitizing her voice.
  • In Pokémon Vietnamese Crystal, a poorly translated bootleg of Pokemon Crystal Version, every single piece of text is in ALL CAPS. This makes it look like everyone in the whole game has no indoor voice, and it makes every bit of strange, convoluted dialogue look like a hammy rant.
  • Princess Daisy from Super Mario Bros. gradually got MUCH louder as games went on, getting particularly loud in games such as Mario Party 8 and Mario Kart DS, where she shouts with EVERYTHING SHE DOES. Naturally, it's very irritating.
  • EVERY CHARACTER IN CHRONO CROSS HAS A PERSONAL VERBAL TIC. ZOAH'S IS TO SPEAK IN ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME LIKE THIS AND FANS TEND TO INTERPRET IT AS HIM YELLING CONSTANTLY.
  • Steven from Dead Rising would like to remind you all that THIS IS HIS STOOOOORE!.
  • In the Telltale Sam & Max: Freelance Police games, Bluster Blaster of the C.O.P.S. shouts all of his dialogue in a manner resembling Sinistar (except in Episode 203: Night of the Raving Dead, where an accident has considerably quieted him).
  • Ishut, protagonist of Gloria Union, is like this; he's very enthusiastic and has the maturity level of a six-year-old. His allies (and even his voice actor!) find it extremely annoying. The Japanese fanbase has declared him a Fountain of Memes.
  • Planescape: Torment has Coaxmetal, a geant golem (sadly not voiced) that speaks in all-caps. It pales however in comparison with The Transcendent One, voiced by Tony Jay at his very best. All of it lines are also in all-caps.
    The Transcendent One: "I CAN FORGE PLANES WITH MY POWER. I CAN UNMAKE YOU."
  • In Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, we have the British soldier guy who is yelling to the character across a room on how to complete a puzzle involving moon segments and rotating platforms. He constantly yells things like "THAT'S IT!" and "ONE MORE TO GO!"
  • Neverwinter Nights 2: Male, Brooding Dark Hero. His volume range goes from Loud to Really Really Loud. Hell, even his call to the group to be quiet is loud!
  • Messenger Sparks from Armed And Dangerous. This is either a cause or an effect of his near-deafness, which leads to Hilarity Ensues when he's forced to conduct negotiations between the Evil Overlord and the noble bandits who have 'kidnapped' his son.
  • Asura from Asura's Wrath, even more so than Kratos.
    "I, remember now. You Bastards! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"
  • In Ghost Trick, one of the major characters is an occasionally-deceased Pomeranian named Missile. He often gets A LITTLE OVEREXCITED!!! and starts speaking in giant text.
  • Four words: "SUPER SMASH BROTHERS MEEEEELEEEEEE!!!!!!"
    • And the original has "SUPEEEEEEEEEEEEEER SMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH BROTHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERS!"
  • MR. TORGUE from Borderlands 2 never does ANYTHING by half-measures, and APPARENTLY that includes TALKING!
    • Salvador. Just listen when he laughs at the carnage you cause or when starts Gunzerking.
    "TIME TO OVERCOMPENSAAAAAAAAAATE!"
  • THE OFFICIAL BLOODCRUSHER II DEVELOPMENT TWITTER ACCOUNT IS ALL CAPS, ALL THE TIME.
  • The Reality On The Norm series has Mr. Namyah, the Sadist Teacher of P.E. His sole mode of speech is cartoonishly screaming his lungs out in all caps, no matter what the situation.
  • In the entirety of Warhammer 40,000 media—games, books, everything—the orks are characterized as loud, boisterous Blood Knights with No Indoor Voice. Warboss Grimskull of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is of course the same...with one exception. He's thrown down a Bottomless Pit with a bunch of daemons, only to return a few minutes later with the only quiet line from an ork in Warhammer history.
  • Namco High: GALAGA SPEAKS LIKE THIS. Taira also seems to mainly lack a volume control, and King communicates entirely by roaring.
  • Every single Dremora in The Elder Scrolls. Made even "better" with their extreme hamminess.
    A CHALLENGER DRAWS NEAR !
  • Fujimoto in Octodad seems to be like this most of the time, at least judging by the ALL UPPERCASE SUBTITLES.
