Basic Trope: Character uses their voice as a weapon.

  • Straight: Bannsii's voice can fry people's brains if she hits just the right pitch.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Bannsii can let out a bellowing screech so loud it can demolish buildings and shake apart cellular bonds at closer range, dissolving living things with a mere yell.
    • Bannsii is treated as a weapon-of-mass-destruction, and uses her voice to shatter a planet.
  • Downplayed: Bannsii's scream is earsplitting painful but certainly not lethal.
  • Advertisement:
  • Justified: Bannsii has both cybernetic and genetic enhancements to make her a living weapon.
  • Inverted:
    • A curse was placed upon Bannsii that makes anyone whose voice she hears die.
    • Bannsii can kill people with a glance, unless she speaks to them.
  • Subverted: It looks like Bannsii generates massive sonic booms with her voice but it's actually a device hidden in her backpack that does.
  • Double Subverted: ...though the device only enhances her natural abilities.
  • Parodied:
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Human voice cannot be used as a weapon.

  • Enforced: In a show about The Power of Rock, all lead singers get voice-based powers just because.
  • Lampshaded: "Be careful even if, no especially if you are just talking to her."
  • Invoked: "I can kill you with my voice, you know."
  • Exploited: Emperor Evilz twists Bannsii's arm in such a way that screams in pain, and then twists her around to that the scream is aimed at her teammates.
  • Defied: Bannsii's target puts in the ear plugs and turns on the active noise control.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed:
    • Bannsii accidentally kills her love interest Bob with her voice during their intimate moment and never speaks to anyone again.
    • Bannsii is not immune to her powers, and she goes deaf from excessive usage.
  • Reconstructed:
    • Then, however, Charlie comes along, who has similar powers and is therefore immune to Bannsii voice. Sparks fly and soon the two of them become a Battle Couple fighting crime with their sonic powers.

    • Or, Bannsii invokes Heroic Mime, to prevent herself from harming her friends. Right up until she's alone in the boss room with the Final Boss.
