No Indoor Voice / Anime & Manga

Go To

  • Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball Z. She's moderately better than she was as a child, but still shows that she can ramp it up when necessary.
  • Lara Gonzalez 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 dubnote  — he's a lot louder and sounds more like Takeshi / Brock from Pokémon (which is little surprise, as they're both voiced by Eric Stuart).
    • Kaiba in the Japanese original also screams almost everything he says when he's dueling.
    • 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.

    • The Japanese original has Yami Yugi when he's dueling. He's really loud, even when performing unspectacular turns.
    • 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 Jonouchi / Joey saying "Stop yellin' at me!" to which Espa Roba replies "WHAT? THIS IS MY NORMAL SPEAKING VOICE!"
  • Pick a Super Robot pilot.
  • Pokémon
    • In the anime, Tougan / Byron, the Mio / Canalave City Gym Leader. Dan Green seems to be trying to make him the Pokémon world's answer to BRIAN BLESSED.
    • Musashi / Jessie in the "dub" of the anime by the previously mentioned 4Kids. Also when competing in contests as "Jessilina".
    • Black of Pokémon Adventures 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.
  • Black Star from Soul Eater is particularly bad about this, especially where his abilities as a stealthy assassin are concerned. One example of this is in his introduction episode where he goes in to take out a mobster and his gang...and the first thing he does is swoop down and announce at the top of his lungs that he's gonna to assassinate them all. Lampshaded by Tsubaki when she catches him peeping on her at a hot spring; rather than be angry with him for being a Peeping Tom, she instead chides him for screaming at the top of his lungs while doing it.
    Tsubaki: Silence means approaching quietly. [Throws a shuriken at Black Star which promptly knocks him over] If you're trying to be an assassin, you have to learn how to SHUT UP!
  • 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.
  • Big Windup! (Production Cooperation, one episode)List '': 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. On the other hand, he also typically sounds like this when he's played by Mayumi Tanaka in the Japanese original.
  • 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 Katekyō 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.
  • Ken Edmundo from Heat Guy J almost always seems to be shouting in the dub.
  • In Brave10, Nobuyuki has a tendency to shout most of his dialogue, as does Seikai.
  • Harunobu Nikaidou from 3-gatsu no Lion has such a boisterous personality, especially when around the main protagonist, that he tends to speak without toning down his volume when he's excited, regardless of where he may be at the moment.
  • Raijinshi of Soul Hunter, have a habit to scream or talk very loudly at all time, coupled with hot-bloodedness and a bit of a temper.
