When anyone shouts a single word (repeat, one word) hard and loud (although that one word can be shouted more than once), for various reasons, as long as the reason is other than actually needing to shout. If someone is shouting because of a noisy room, someone is far away, or that someone is barking out orders, it doesn't count.

Often done for dramatic effect, actually Melodramatic effect, to the point this is rarely played straight anyway, due to the Narm potential.

If the word is someone's name, this often takes the form of a Skyward Scream.

A Sub-Trope of Chewing the Scenery.

A Super-Trope to:

Compare GASP, Say My Name, Calling Your Attacks, Metal Scream, Death Wail, Big OMG, Big "Shut Up!", Punctuated! For! Emphasis! (those three would be sub tropes, but use more than one word).

Not to be confused with Big Words.

Examples of Big Word Shout include:

Advertising

  • "SUUUURGE!" from one of Coca-Cola's attempts to enter the citrus soda market dominated by Mountain Dew.
  • "Cillit BANG!"
  • "POWERTHIRST!"
  • "SEGA!" (the Sega Scream) from commercials for the Sega Genesis and its add-ons, the Sega CD and 32X. Some commercials for Genesis ports of third party games used the scream.


Anime

  • Used many times in Soul Eater, with many contributions by none other than the resident ham, Black* Star. Also on a similar note "FOOL"
  • "BAAAAAN... KAI!" from Bleach. Japanese for "Final Release".
  • Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: TEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAA!!!
  • A few times in Dragonball Z. Example: after being beaten by the Androids, Arrogant Kung Fu Guy Vegeta vents his frustration by shouting "KUSOOOOOOOO!" ("SHIIIIIIIIT!") so loudly it crumbles the mountain he's standing on.
  • Akira: "KAAAAAANNNNNNNNAAAAAEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDAAAAAAAA!!!!!"
    • "TEEEEEETTTTTTSSSSSSUUUUUUOOOO!!!"
    • This is a trope that's not so unusual in anime, with two characters shouting their names back and forth like here. Inuyasha and at least one .hack series do it often, for example.
  • Neo Ranga "RANGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
  • Gundam "GUNDAM!
  • Code Geass RRRRUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSHU!!!!!!!!
  • S-Cry-ed HAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!! *ad infinitum*
    • "RYUUUUUUUHOOOOU!!" "KAZUUUUMAAAAAAA!!"
  • One Piece: "GOMU-GOMU NOOOOOOOOOOOO......PISUTORUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!'", etc
  • Fairy Tail: "Karyuu no...HOUKOOOOOOOOU!" and all variations thereupon.
    • The English equivalent: "Fire Dragon...ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAR!"

  • College Humor created "Powerthirst," a spoof advertisement for a made-up energy drink. About half of the runtime of the video (and of the sequel) involves a man with steroids in his voice shouting random catchwords like a drill sergeant.
  • Two Best Friends Play: "AMMMMEERRRRIIIICCAAAAAAAA!!!!"
