    Default Battle Yell / War Cries

    I am looking what the term " Battle Cry" would be in Japanese. I am not looking for word "Kiai".

    To put in better perspective of what I am looking for. An a good examples would be the Japanese "Banzai !" The Spartan''s fictional " Awwoooo" or the US Marines " oh-rah !"

    Thanks ! I hope my inquiry is clear as a bell ! Awoo !

    鬨の声 ときのこえ toki no koe, or just toki

    Also, 喊声 かんせい kansei

    Toki would be the pre-battle cry when a commanders would shout, "Ei! Ei!" and the soldiers would respond, "Oh!!!"

    Kansei would be along the lines of the coherent or incoherent screams of someone charging into the enemy.
