Say My Name:
The is the entire gimmick behind The start of each episode ends up with him shouting to the heavens the name of whatever slighted him (imaginary or not) at the beginning of the episode.
Dan Vs. :
plays with this when Stan starts falling through row after row of dilapidated stairs while Steve takes a completely functional lift down at the same pace. At first, Steve is actually worried, shouting "Dad!!" a few times and loses a bit of enthusiasm each time until he starts saying the word in a monotone. Eventually he finds a newspaper and reads the comics while Stan continues to fall and crash through the wooden stairs.
Futurama "WERNSTROM!" This is how Professor Farnsworth greets his arch nemesis. He was his former student.
"ROOOBOT HOOOUSE!!" It was screamed several times by the dean of the Mars University when said robot house got in trouble, thanks to Bender's attempts to make them cool.
Transformers Animated Megatron finally using Optimus Prime's name in the "Endgame" finale - it means that he finally sees Optimus as an archenemy as opposed to just another Autobot nuisance.
Megatron: If I cannot save my clones, at least I'll have the pleasure of destroying you, Optimus Prime!
Optimus: So you can remember my name.
Megatron screaming Starscream's name is a recurring thing. In the IDW comics, it happens when Starscream is using Ultra-Energon to try and overthrow him. The juiced-up Starscream still gets EASILY pwned, and this Megatron will not be taking it lying down like certain other Megatrons.
In Animated Starscream tries to rig a MacGuffin to explode and destroy the Autobots and Megatron (and about half of Detroit would likely have gone with them.) Starscream fails.
[Megatron descends into view]
Starscream: I stand corrected.
Screamer: [Flying away at high speed] Sorry, you must have me confused with some other harrier jet! [Next scene is Starscream slamming into the ground. Hard.]
Megs gets booby-trapped and he and the 'cons loyal to him are left behind in a force field in deep space. Starscream feels the need to leave a message to make sure Megs knows who screwed him, and all Megatron can do is yell his name in fury.
Transformers Cybertron, In when Megatron finds out Starscream tried to off him in the premiere, rather than going for the traditional STARSCREEAM! he simply says his name quietly. However, his wrath is the same and he inflicts Transformers Prime, No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on him.
From Prime - in "Rebellion", Megatron lets out an "OOOPTIMUUUUSSSS!" while attacking in jet mode (having just been punched through his own throne by the newly-upgraded Prime).
In "More Than Meets the Eye: Part 3" of the original Transformers series, Megatron and the 'Cons are taking off in their space ship while the Autobots watch. Optimus reaches out his hand, and in one of Peter Cullen's greatest moments yells "MEEEGAAATRRROOON!"
In the Maximals and Predacons are working together to stop the Vok from blowing up the planet. As Optimus goes to take out the Planet Buster, he realizes that Megs has sabotaged his shuttle and he won't be able to escape the impending explosion. Megatron broadcasts a message to him to taunt him about this, and Optimus yells MEGAAATROOON! just before 'kaboom'.
: "SPIDERMAAAN!!" Spider-Man gets this a lot more than other heroes, especially from mugs. Eventually, he even started countering it. "Well, it sure ain't Gomer Pyle!"
The Spectacular Spider Man :
South Park "STAAAN!" Randy calling out in a sick rasp to his son in "Bloody Mary" after Alcoholics Anonymous convince him of being terminally ill.
"BUTTERS!" Stephen and Linda Stotch, towards their son. "You are grounded, mister!" almost certainly follows. Butters is innocent (usually).
Played for Drama when Butters is left behind in Imaginationland, in the midst of a terrorist attack, and Stan, Kyle, Jimmy and Kenny yell his name in unison.
"CART-MAAAN!" Kyle towards Cartman, whenever he's done something awful. Sometimes followed up with " You. Fucking. FATASS." when its really bad.
"MEEE-EM!" Cartman's way of calling his mother to do things for him or when he's not getting his way.
Subverted when he's sent to a foster home "My name. Is not. Mee-em."
Henry on is prone to yelling Stanley's name when the latter is clowning around or goes missing. Stanley tends to call Henry's name whenever he gets himself into a scrape.
The Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan
Archer The show has Sterling Archer, the protagonist, yell one to Barry Dillon after the latter kills Katya Kasanova, Archer's wife.
: Used whenever Mr. Rude farts or burps.
The Mr. Men Show A surprising number of episodes feature put-upon Jr. Commissioner Vallejo seeing the bill for the latest chase sequence and shouting "FILLMORE!"
Fillmore! On , if anything goes wrong in Old Lady Munson's life she will always blame it on Coop or his dad, crying out "BURTONBURGER!"
Kid vs. Kat "Scooby Doo...where are you?!" was that standard catch phrase used by virtually every member of the kids from . Shaggy uses it most.
Scooby-Doo In the pilot movie for , when Mac figures out Terrence's plan to adopt Bloo, he guesses that somebody must be in cahoots with him.
Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends Mac: So the question is who?
(everyone's eyes widen;
Smash Cut to the chain ball's cage unlocked) Frankie: DUUUUCHEEEEEEEESSS!!!
Practically a staple in every adaptation whenever Alvin is in trouble, or not responding to Dave's orders.
Alvin and the Chipmunks Dave: Alvin? Alvin? AAAAALLLLVVVIIIIIIIN!
Kim Possible Principal Madman and Shannon Westerburg do this frequently to the titular character in .
Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones?
