Why do so many characters yell the names of their moves when they're doing them? It's especially stupid when it's just some regular martial arts move

the louder you yell the name of your move the stronger it gets
common knowledge

Goku is such a nice guy that he warns his opponents before hitting them

It was a decision made so that people would understand what attacks were being done.

It adds some sort of enthusiasm to the whole thing, for both the character (ever heard of how yelling HAH when punching will help to punch harder or some shit) and you, the viewer; as you have something to replicate in your fanlovingness.

OBVIOUSLY you are exempt Cap.

Not true.

The longer the name the more powerful. You also need to whisper the first syllables. Then scream the rest.

It's too bad he couldn't finish his Golden...punch.

Because everything is based off manga and you can't tell what move the guy is doing if it just shows one frame of him in some awkward stance, so he yells it out to inform the reader what's up

Fist of North Star now?

Digimon did it right though, they'd say the name whilst doing the attack so you wouldn't have to wait for them to finish to see it.

GIGA CANNON.

I wish girls in fighting anime would say "o-onii-chan..." instead of the names of their attacks.

REIGUN!

i think it's pretty awesome.

I think of it as a courtesy thing. When you blast your opponent off to hell, it's only polite to let him know what you just kicked his ass with.

They obviously need to shout it to active it.

In .hack, they force you to use the M2D microphone to execute special techs. Since keyboards are obsolete then.

I can just see this guy announcing his shadowless kick and then breaking your jaw. I guess when you're that good it doesn't matter if they know what you're going to do next.
