BiographyEdit

The Demonic Announcer is the title given to the entity that is in control of the Aether's energy, which includes Power-Ups, the Mystery Box and the zombies. Because of this, the Announcer has been (and can be) a number of different individuals, including Samantha Maxis, Edward Richtofen, Ludvig Maxis, Willard Wyler, and Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson, among others.

The Demonic Announcer is heard on every Zombies map except for Dead Ops Arcade, Dead Ops Arcade 2: Cyber's Avengening, and the Call of Duty: World at War version of Nacht der Untoten. Its voice seems to shift through different tones and pitch throughout the game mode.

TriviaEdit

  • The Demonic Announcer is not fully included (except Fire Sale and Death Machine) in the German, Austrian, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian versions of Black Ops. However, upon completion of the Richtofen's Grand Scheme easter egg, she appears for the rest of the playtime on Moon.
    • The Demonic Announcer is only present in the revamped World at War maps in the French, Italian, Spanish and Russian versions of Black Ops.
    • In the French, Portuguese and Spanish versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops III, the Demonic Announcer on both The Giant and Shadows of Evil is Edward Richtofen instead of Samantha Maxis.
  • The zombies' eyes will change color depending on who the Demonic Announcer is. Their eyes are red under the Apothicons, Brutus and the entity in House, FacilityTemple and Overlook, yellow under Samantha and the Priest, blue under Richtofen and orange under Maxis.
    • The eyes are yellow in Shadows of Evil, Der Eisendrache, and Zetsubou No Shima, despite Samantha not controlling the zombies as of Origins.
    • There also Zombies with white eyes in a few maps, such as Origins, with a common theory being that these zombies do not serve the Announcer and act on basic instincts.
  • Maxis remains silent when players pick up Power-Ups.
  • In Attack of the Radioactive Thing, Willard Wyler will occasionally taunt her and threaten to send Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson to Nightfall.
  • In Classified, Samantha's demonic announcer lines say "Zombie Announcer", rather than Samantha. What this suggests is currently unknown.
