It seems to me that the trope name should be in caps, considering it's already a Self-Demonstrating Article in the beginning paragraph or two. Just a thought.

Removed this text because I don't think it fits the trope. This seems to be a trope about actors, not characters, who always yell even in situations where the character should not. Stentor is a character with no actor, who yelled while doing the duties of a herald... which requires speaking loudly to be heard.

  • Proving this trope is naturally Older Than Dirt: Stentor was a herald of the Greek forces during the Trojan War. His name has given rise to the adjective "stentorian", meaning loud-voiced, for which he was famous. Homer said his "voice was as powerful as hundred voices of other men". He died after his defeat by Hermes in a shouting contest.
