Say My Name / Video Games

Go To


  • Giants: Citizen Kabuto:
  • Super Mario Bros.:
    • Princess Peach often calls out Mario's name when she's getting kidnapped, or if he's just rescued her.
    • Luigi has truly epic ones in Luigi's Mansion bypressing "A" with no other context action available will cause Luigi to call out in search of his brother. These can range from a tentative "Mario?" to a full blown Narm Charm "MAA-REEE-OOO!". Which you need to hear for yourself.
    • In the Mario & Luigi series, the other brother's name is one of the few intelligible phrases Mario and Luigi can say, alongside token things like "Let's-a go" and "Mama Mia".
  • The Binding of Isaac: Isaac's name is shouted in the boss fight with Mom. And in the fight with Satan. ISAAAC!
  • In the Devil May Cry series:
    • Dante and Trish do this quite a bit in Devil May Cry. 'Dante!' 'Trish!' Commented on in this YouTube review.
    • Advertisement:
    • In Devil May Cry 4, Nero has a terrible habit of screaming Kyrie's name whenever she's in danger.
      Nero: Kyrie! KYRIE! I swear it! I swear I'm going to get us out of here! TOGETHER, KYRIE! KYRIE!
  • In Devil May Cry 5 Urzien during his Villainous Breakdown at one point bellows “DAAAAANNNTTTEEEE“ in pure fury.
  • One of Vergil’s voice lines in both DMC3 and DMC5 during gameplay is just saying/shouting in his brother’s name in utter fury.
  • Inverted in Kill Switch: part of the game's Mind Screw flashback story is a mystery girl's insistent question that the main character say her name. The trope's name itself is Arc Words for the game.
  • Namu Amida Butsu! -UTENA-: The recollection between Nanda Ryūō, die-hard Shaka Nyorai fanboy, and General Sanshi, die-hard Tamonten fanboy, consists of these two's rapidly firing "SHAKANYORAISAMASHAKANYORAISAMASHAKANYORAISAMA" and "TAMONSAMATAMONSAMATAMONSAMA" at each other.
  • Advertisement:
  • Ninja Gaiden II (part of the original trilogy for the NES) had Ryu Hayabusa and his love interest Irene Lew saying their names constantly. One particular sequence has Ryu and Irene repeat each other's name three times in succession, though the context (they find each other, then she gets shot almost immediately, and she struggles to say something else before passing out from shock) does have each successive repetition imply different emotions.
  • Resident Evil: So many examples that RE almost gives Metal Gear a run for it's money when it comes to this trope.
    • Chris loves to scream "REBECCA!" "JILL!", "CLAIRE!", "SHEVA!!" and especially "WESSSSKEEER!". In RE6 he tends to yell “WONG!” in fury.
    • Wesker takes the cake during the climax of Resident Evil 5 where he shouts the name of his Arch-Enemy "CHRIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSS".
      • Parodied hilariously in "Albert Wesker's Christmas message" by Wesker's English VA D.C Douglas
  • Final Fantasy:
    • Final Fantasy IV: You'll be hearing a lot of "Cecil, Cecil" and even more "Rosa, Rosa".
    • Final Fantasy VI: "KEFKA!!!" by the main heroes.
    • Final Fantasy VII: Many though the first and iconic time being when Cloud makes his Dynamic Entry onto the escape train causing Biggs, Wedge Jessie, and Barret to yell "CLOUD!!" in surprise. Though Tifa one-ups them by repeatedly saying "Cloud" over the course of three discs especially in dream sequences. Cloud's favorite word is the name of his idol turned Arch-Enemy "SEPHIROTH!!!", though he says "Tifa" and "Aerith" a lot too. In the Final Fantasy VII Remake Cloud is a big fan of "Tifa" or "TIFA!" when she's in trouble.
    • Final Fantasy X:
      • "YUUUUUNA!" Yelled by Tidus when the party arrives to Yuna's arranged wedding with Seymour, Just in Time.
      • "SEYMOUR!" Tidus again, when Seymour reveals he just finished destroying the Ronso on Mt. Gagazet.
      • "Maester Seymour!" Wakka, towards Seymour when he first reveals his evil intent. It's out of disbelief more than anything else.
    • Final Fantasy XIII: "Snow!" "SERAAAH!"
      • During fights with "BARTHANDELUS!", the current party leader will often say his name during paradigm changes.
    • Final Fantasy XIII-2: Snow gets another one (two in quick succession, in fact), when Serah and Noel arrive to help him defeat Royal Ripeness.
    • Final Fantasy XIV has a boss whose lyrics in the song actually tells you to say his name.
      "I am the end and the beginning. The faith that feeds the unbelieving. A tightening knot to staunch the bleeding. Say my name! Say my name! Sephirot!"
    • In Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Marche will call Montblanc's name if Montblanc dies in a Jagd, "Montblanc? Montblanc!"
      • Exclusively for its Audio Adaptation, Marche calls Montblanc's name while crying at the end of the series, along with the very ending where Montblanc calls Marche's name softly, along with an echo, after his One-Liner.
      • That's not just enough. Montblanc actually went exaggerated when Marche goes to Prison (along with Ritz) and before he faces Llednar Twem.
      • MAAASHUUU!
  • Kingdom Hearts:
  • Kingdom Hearts II:
    • TRON's new password is the heroes' names, which gets shouted dramatically by the heroes themselves. Here's a video that shows nearly every instance. Granted, there is one time in the game where they are addressed as "Donald, Sora, Goofy." This is only because Donald got there first.
    • Kairi's favorite word seems to be "Sora" or "SORA!" or "Soo... raa..." She can even say it while disembodied!
  • Speaking of Roxas, one scene in the prologue features Axel and DiZ screaming Roxas's name at him over and over again. A lot of the Organization XIII members will also cry out "Roxxaaaaasss..." upon being defeated in battle.
  • The "cutscene" that occurs in the middle of the final boss battle consists entirely of Sora and Riku saying each others' names.
  • Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep:
    • The game has everyone good who was lost throughout the series saying Sora's name; asking him to save them.
    • When you encounter the Bonus Boss: Xe...ha...nort...? Xeha...nort... XEHANOOOOOOORRRTT!
    • In any game, whenever a party member heals another, they will usually yell the name of whoever they're healing. The one exception is for Captain Jack Sparrow in the second (third?) game, who gets referred to as "Captain!" because "Jack!" was already used for Jack Skellington.
    • In the second game, summon characters will always say Sora's name upon being summoned.
  • Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days has "Xion!" being used by Roxas a lot.
  • The World Ends with You: If Beat is your partner, he'll sometimes cry out "RHYYYME!" when you get a Game Over.
  • Used in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex The Game, when Batou comes across two Motokos fighting (not unlike Pazu's situation in 2nd Gig), he figures out who the impostor is by yelling out, "MOTOKOOO!" and shooting the one who responded because the Major does not react when someone yells her given name.
  • Within the Tales Series, it is common for the lead male character to scream another character's name during a dramatic scene. This video only scratches the surface of how much the Tales Series loves this trope.
  • Cave Story
    • "Quote!" from Curly.
    • "MISERY" from Balrog.
    • "DOOOCTOOOR" from King.
  • Metal Wolf Chaos has
    • "RICHAAARD!!!"
    • "MICHAEL!!!" ...quite a lot of this throughout the game.
  • Metal Gear:
  • Near the end of the Sandral/Matale feud quest in Knights of the Old Republic: "There you are, Shen!" "Father!" "Mr. Matale!" "Rahasia!" "Father!" "Mr. Sandral!" "Nurik!" "Ahlan!"
  • Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan:
    • OOO-UUU-EEEN-DAAAN! (Though in the first game's "Over the Distance" level, it was delivered instead as a quiet, heartfelt "Ouendan...". Also parodied in "One Night Carnival", the main character tries to scream, but is suffering from severe stomach cramps so it comes out as a weak, strained "Ouen...daaan...").
    • And in its across-the-pond counterpart, Elite Beat Agents: AGENTS! — right after the eponymous Agents are zapped by a Rhombulan petrification beam.
  • Vanquish, from the main character Sam Gideon: "BURNS!!" especially after old man's Heel–Face Turn. Elena the radio support has a heartbreaking example near the end where she thinks the hero has exploded along with the space station
    Elena: "SAM!!, SAM!! SAM!!... no (despairing)"
  • Killzone 2: "Sev?! SEEEV!!!" Dick Richardson was surprised it actually didn't morph into "SNAAAKE!!"
  • Zero says "Iris" at least ten times in his infamous ending in Mega Man X 4.
    • In a turnaround, Mega Man Zero's Ciel cries Zero's name at least three times, and the last time was a hopeless bid for Zero to get out of Ragnarok even though it's already too late by that time.
    • So far in the series, the first thing X says upon seeing Zero destroyed or resurrected has been "Zero!"
    • One of the last lines in Day of Sigma is this one from Zero as he's regaining consciousness: "Sigma...X...X? X! X!"
    • Sigma, Vile, Dr. Cain, and all of the Mavericks get the chance to say X's name over the course of the game the OVA comes with.
    • Suffice it to say, the Mega Man franchise likes using this trope; characters will say each other's names for no reason at all!
  • Fire Emblem: "SOOOTHE!" and in Path of Radiance: "FATHER!!"
    • And "NIIINIAAAN!"
  • EarthBound: "Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness, Ness....."

    • "PIII!"

      • Loretta! Sister! Loretta! Sister! Loretta! Sister! Loretta! Sister! Loretta! Sister! Loretta! Sister!
    • Upon his defeat in Order of Ecclesia, the Fake Boss Albus bellows a truly epic "SHAAANOOOAAA!"
    • Dawn of Sorrow: "Yoko!" "Julius!" "Alucard!"
      • And when you reach the final boss in Julius Mode, you get one depending on which character is leading the strike: "ARIKADO!" "VERUNANDES!" "YURIUSU... BELMONDOOO!"
      • The lead's heavy-hearted 'Soma...'.
    • Likewise, Maxim of Harmony of Dissonance also yells "JUSTEEE!" when beaten.
    • Thanks to Castlevania: Judgment, we also have "LORD DRACULAAA!", "LORD DRACULAAA!" and "LORD GALAMOOOTH!"
    • One character pressing the "Dual Crush" button near another result in them calling the other character's name in Harmony of Despair.
  • Touhou: Mostly in Fanon, but Ran Yakumo seems to be fond of yelling her Shikigami's name: "CHEEEN!"
  • Guilty Gear: SOOOL!
  • BlazBlue: Masta Unito...AMA-TEH-RASUUU!
    • Ragna's bellowing TERUUUMIII.
    • Jin's near-MGS level NIIIIIII-SAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!
    • With Central Fiction we have new villains entering the stage and they have plenty to be angry about. Hence we get both Phantom and Izanami's takes on "RAGUNA ZA BLOODOEDJI!", as well as Phantom's "Suffer the same fate I have, Rachel Alucard!"
  • Evil Zone:
    • "Say my name!" — "Which one, Gally?" — "I'm Gally 'Vanish' Gregman! The bounty hunter!"
    • "Danzaiiivaaar!"
  • Team Fortress 2:
  • Disgaea: As befits his role as a Large Ham, Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth gets a few of these. At the end of Chapter 11, when Thursday goes off-line, and then at the end of Chapter 12, when Jennifer is taken away.
  • Disgaea Dimension 2: Lots of dramatic name-callings happens in the various Non Standard Game Overs, usually because a character has died.
  • Eternal Darkness: "Charlemaaaagne..."
  • Sonic the Hedgehog:
    • Sonic Adventure 2: Shadow yells "MARIA" when he dies in levels, plus tons of times in flashbacks.
    • Amy's "SONIIIC!"
    • Tails screams out for Sonic too.
    • In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Sonic calls out Elise's name after the Egg Carrier explodes.
    • Then Knuckles shouts Sonic's name when he sees him dead before his and the others' eyes. Amy does this too, but with more emotion.
  • World of Warcraft: ARTHAAAS!!!
  • Space Channel 5:
    • Ulala calls Pudding and Jaguar's names after they get pimp-slapped by Blank and proceeds to do absolutely nothing about it but continue the fight without them.

    • Lord Bale's infamous "SSSINDRIIIIII!" on Sindri's betrayal.
    • Subverted in Retribution: On finally having undeniable proof that their Chapter Master has fallen to Chaos, something that Diomedes has been denying for the past two decades as he's been working for him for four centuries, he only says the name with quiet contempt.
  • Tales of Monkey Island: In Chapter 1, when a blunder with the Cutlass of Kaflu ends with the fuse being unintentionally lit in Elaine's ship: "Elaine!" "Guybrush?" (monkey does a Face Palm, gunpowder barrel explodes) "ELAAAaaaine!!!"
    • And at the end of Chapter 4, when LeChuck runs Guybrush through: "Guybrush!" "Elaine?" "GUYBRUSH!!!" "LECHUCK! (laughs) Arr, this name-shouting is jolly good fun!"
  • Mass Effect:
    • Mass Effect 2:
      • In the prologue, Joker yells "Shepard!" while the commander is sacrificing themself to launch Joker's escape pod.

    • Mass Effect 3:
      • Male!Shepard, yells "STEEEVEE" when Steve Cortez, the Normandy's shuttle pilot, gets hit by a Harvester when you return to Earth for the final assault. He will survive if you help him get over his husband's death.
      • The "Citadel" DLC for 3 not only hangs a lampshade on it, but hooks up a tri-light bulb as well, as one optional conversation between Shepard and one or both of Wrex and Grunt consists solely of them saying each other's names with different intonations. It's looped, so you can let this go all day. "Shepard." "Grunt." "Wrex." "Shepard." "Grunt." "Shepard, Shepard, Shepard." "WREX!" "Grunt!" "Shepard!" "Grunt." Etc. etc. etc.
      • Grunt via email if you choose Aralakh Company over the Rachni Queen/Breeder, announcing that he has his entire company of elite krogan warriors chanting, as he puts it, "SHEPERD S HEPAURD SHEPARUD". In his defense, he's a) basically been raised on words and pictures but very little actual written content, and b) is drunk at the time.
  • Dead Rising's sniper trio miniboss, depending on what order they're taken out in: "JAAACK!" "THOMAAAS!" "DAAAD!!"
  • Summon Night Swordcraft Story 2 loved this a lot. Characters names are shouted right and left shamelessly.
  • Mushihime Sama:
    • "RECO-CHAAAN!!"
    • "PARUMUUU!"
  • As in parodying Metal Gear Solid, BlazBlue, if in Bang's storyline, if he lost against Hakumen, Litchi will call his name out like this: "Bang? Bang! BAAANG!!!" Bang just never gets any luck because that's when Litchi finally responds to him the way he wanted to, and he's down for the count to hear that. His other outcome if he won against Hakumen isn't any better for his crush.
  • Heavy Rain:
  • The King of Fighters: "KYOOO!"
  • Fatal Fury: "GEESE!"
  • Happens after Jak's Suicidal "Gotcha!" in Jak 3: Wastelander
    Daxter: Jak? JAAAK!

    Herbert "Daring" Dashwood: Inspired you to... tighten your defenses?
    Argyle: Warm welcome's over, boss! Time to scram!
  • Heavenly Sword: KAAAIII!
  • Silent Hill 2 seems to use name-calling as a replacement for actual dialogue in a few places. ...Actually, no. Most of the time, with "Mary"... "James".
    • One (although there are many examples of excessive name repetition) is during the scene when Pyramid Head impales Maria in Brookhaven Hospital:
      Maria: Jaaames!? JAAAMES!
      James: NOOO!
      Maria: JAAAMES!!
      James: MARIAAA!
    • But the true harrowing example comes from the final playable section when James's subconscious takes the form of a terrifying version of his late wife, when "Mary" is defeated she lies on the ground saying "James... James... James" over and over again until the player does the finishing blow.

  • And in Mitsumete Knight, a Spiritual Successor of Tokimeki Memorial, you've got Johan Elites, who constantly does this each time the Asian (i.e. the Main Protagonist) foils his plans. "TOUYOUJIN-MEEE!" ("YOU BASTARD ASIAAAN!!!")

  • In Bare Knuckle 3, if the player fails to save General Ivan Petrov in Stage 6: "IVAAAN!"

    • Played for Laughs with Pit and Hades. The camera even dramatically switches between them. First time:

      Pit: Hades.
      Hades: Pit.
      Pit: Hades!
      Hades: Pit!
      Pit: Hadeees!
      Hades: Piiit!
      Both: It's ON!
    • Happens again later. It gets louder, but then eventually ends with them saying the names softly:
      Hades: Hello again, Pit.
      Pit: Hades!
      Hades: Pit!
      Pit: Hades!
      Hades: PIT!
      Pit: HADES!
      Hades: Piiit...
      Pit: Hadees...
      Hades: HACHOO!
      Pit: Excuse you. But anyway...
      Both: Now it's REALLY on!
      (epic fist clash that causes rocks to fly up all over)
      Hades: On to death!
      Pit: On to victory!

    • Cammy has this moment in Street Fighter V story mode "VEGAAAAA".
  • Halo: The Master Chief is a quiet, stoic fellow. The closest we ever hear him shout is raising his voice a bit to get Cortana and Guilty Spark to stop fighting. But come the last level of Halo 4, when the AI interface pedestal that Cortana is presently inserted into is vaporized by the Didact, the Chief actually shouts Cortana's name in horror at the apparent death of his ailing friend, reaching out to where she'd just been. (...She, of course, survives this, only to die shortly afterward to save the Chief's life one last time.)
  • In Neo Contra, after Bill Rizer and Jaguar defeat Pheromone Contra, or Lucia: "LUUUCIAAA!!!"

  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future:
    • Both Josephs do this in their "Master's Teachings/Unforgettable Memories" super. Old Joseph whispers "Lisa-Lisa..." his teacher and mother from Part 2. Compare that to Young Joseph, on the other hand, who screams out "CAAAEEESAAAAR!" as in Caesar Zeppeli.
    • Every hero character (And Devo) shouts out "DIO!" as their special intro against him. Chaka has a Dummied Out vocal where he does this as well.
  • In Star Stealing Prince, one of the bosses is a Dual Boss, and they care about each other. So when you kill either of them, the first thing the other one says is the name of the one who fell. And then they become so distraught they start spamming their most powerful attack.

  • As shown in the Rise of the Falcon trailer in SpeedRunners, the Falcon screams Speedrunner's name in the furious text as he's left to struggle to keep his home from burning down.
  • In Mortal Kombat X, a lot of pre-fight banter between kombatants begins with one kombatant calling their opponent by name. In story mode, the reformed Scorpion also pulls this when he's about to kill Quan Chi.
    Quan Chi: Scorpion, we can—
    Scorpion: (cold-cocks Quan Chi) My name is Hanzo Hasashi!
  • The Big Bad of Dying Light screams "CRRAAAANNNEEEE!!" at the top of his lungs after Crane kills his guards, chops off his left hand and escapes his compound. More than one reviewer compared the whole thing to the now infamous "KHHAAAAAAANN!!"
  • Parodied in Saints Row: The Third; every single one of the radio promos for Nyteblayde end with the title character doing one of these.
  • Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals, when the world's greatest boyfriend sacrifices himself to save her:
    Tia: DEKAAAAAAAR!!!!

  • In Snatcher, after Harry's death:
    Gillian: C-CUNNINGHAM! No! SNATCHER! I'll get you for this!
  • The opening of the Japanese version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II has the other characters saying repeatedly the name of the protagonist, Rean. It was determined this wouldn't work well for the English-language version, so it was changed to a selection of important lines from the previous game.
    • Cold Steel III gives out a more proper version of this trope when Jusis screams "MILIIIIIUUUUUUM!!!" after she dies protecting Rean from the Nameless One.
    • In Cold Steel IV, Giliath Osborne of all people ends up screaming "ISHMELGAAAAAAAAAA!!!" in a flashback sequence for The Reveal.
  • The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki has Lloyd Bannings scream Rean's name before the two groups get separated when entering the final dungeon. Crow also manages to pull off this trope in the same game when Ishmelga-Rean attempts one last attack against Rean.
  • Tidehunter from DOTA 2 might say this line sometimes if killed by his Archenemy, KUNKKKKAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
  • Episode 1 of Code 7 has an interesting variation of this. Whoever dies of the Phantom Plague does so while calling Alex. It's mentioned that - based on the victims' condition - it can range from a whisper over a desperate cry to an angry scream. The only time during the game where someone actually dies from it, the victim cries for Alex almost endearingly before going Laughing Mad and dying.
  • In the Persona series:
    • In Persona 3 and Persona 4, this if you score a Critical Hit when using a Persona to attack.
      Aigis: Athena!

      Protagoinst: Come, ARSENE!
  • Until Dawn: Due to the nature of the game, several characters will scream out another's name while looking for them.
    Beth: after Hannah runs of into the woods. HAAANNAAAAH!
    Mike: when she gets kidnapped by a wendigo. JESSICA, JESSICCCCAAAAA!
    Chris: when she goes missing and when she is found in a saw trap. ASHLEY!
    Josh will scream Hannah's name if he recognizes her in her wendigo form.
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 has the drunken memetic "LEENNNYYYYYY!!!" Which you can repeat a lot while you're searching for Lenny while drunk. There are also other names that are shouted whenever something happens to the other characters in different scenarios.
  • Not for Broadcast: Toward the end of Day 296, if Jeremy dies before you cut to the ad (either by suicide or by security), you get this reaction from Jenny if you stick around to hear her on broadcast (just make sure you cut to the ad PDQ after this):
    Jenny: Jeremy!


How well does it match the trope?
