** Sometimes, things turn out differently, When Sougo transforms into [[SuperMode Grand Zi-O]], he stops himself from doing so, claiming that words are unnecessary to describe the greatness standing before him. [[spoiler:Taken UpToEleven in the final episode. When Sougo finally transforms into [[EvilOverlord Oma Zi-O]], Woz is so astonished and dumbstruck that Sougo has to ''[[OOCIsSeriousBusiness order]]'' him to make his speech.]]

* ''Literature/TheTrueGame'' has an entire {{character class|System}} called the Herald, whose role in the setting's battles is mainly to levitate into the air to issue declarations of war on behalf of his King.
-->'''Herald of High King Prionde:''' All within sound of my voice pay heed: I speak for Mandor of Bannerwell, most adored, most jealously guarded, and for the High King, Prionde, of the High Demesne, most puissant, most terrible. I speak for these two in alliance here assembled to call Great Game and make unanswerable Challenge upon Himaggery, styled Wizard, who has in treacherous fashion betrayed the hospitality shown his followers by the High King by stealing away one dependent, the Seer Windlow, and who has betrayed the good will of Mandor by sending into his Demesne a spy, the Healer Silkhands. For these reasons and others, more numerous than the leaves upon the trees, all reasons of ill faith and betrayal, treachery and all ungameliness, do my Lords cry Challenge upon this Himaggery and wait his move. We cry True Game!\\
'''Herald of Himaggery:''' ''(after a pause of a few minutes while Himaggery finishes preparing to kick Prionde's ass)'' Hear the words of Himaggery, Wizard of the Bright Demesne. The Wizard does not cry True Game. The Wizard cries Death, Pain, Horror, Mutilation, Wounds, Blood, Agony, Destruction. The Wizard calls all these and more. HE IS NOT PLAYING! ''(cue asskicking)''
