The Demonic Announcer are known major antagonists featured in the Call of Duty zombie franchise, often acting as the main antagonist of the zombie storylines.
These antagonists were responsible for controlling the zombies and attacking many survivors encountered. The first demonic announcer was Samantha, who was placed inside the APD Machine and after the death of her father. The second was Richtofen who became the demonic announcer after the Earth was accidentally destroyed by Ludwig Maxis and is the main antagonist in TransZit.
The third was Ludwig Maxis as he was the main antagonist in Der Riese as he destroyed his world in order to reach his daughter. The fourth was Brutus, who was a prison guard who hanged himself and returned as a demonic zombie. The fifth is Willard Wyler as he attempted to be free from his imprisonment. The sixth was Elvira, in which she played no role in the Infinite Warfare zombies timeline. The seventh was the High Priest of Chaos, who wanted to rule the world and plunge it into major chaos, the eighth was the Cornelius Pernell/Avogadro, who was a scientist that became electricity after being trapped in the APD machine for 50 to 60 years and the ninth was Kazimir Zykov/The Forsaken, who was trapped and forgotten within the Dark Aether for decades.
- Samantha Maxis was voiced by Julie Nathanson in Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Grace Kaufman in Origins.
- Dr. Edward Richtofen was voiced by Nolan North in Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
- Ludwig Maxis was voiced by Fred Tatascoire in Black Ops II.
- Brutus was voiced by Nolan North.
- Willard Wyler was voiced by Paul Reubens (who is very well known for playing Pee-Wee Herman) in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
- Elvira was voiced by Cassandra Peterson in Infinite Warfare.
- The High Priest of Chaos was voiced by Fred Tatasciore in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
- Avogadro was voiced by Tom Kane in Black Ops 4.
- The Forsaken was voiced by Andrew Morgado in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
The personality of a demonic announcer varies from person to person. Most demonic announcers are shown to be very monstrous, which is seen with Dr. Edward Richtofen, Brutus, Avogadro, and Ludwig Maxis as they both had manipulative and destructive natures behind them.
Some are possible misunderstood such as Willard Wyler or Elvira as although they committed crimes, Willard's motivation was caused by him wanting to escape being a demonic announcer and Elvira wasn't necessarily the villain.
Qualifies as a Demonic Announcer
This also gives many of the demonic announcers the ability to say and command anything through telepathy. However, there are characters that have similar abilities to a demonic announcer but don't qualify such as the Shadowman, who has the power of telepathy but doesn't control the zombies at all.
Monty does not count at all as, despite his villainous nature and his attempt to be one, he ultimately failed and the zombies were controlled by Samantha.

High Priest of Chaos
- Another thing that gives qualification of a Demonic Announcer is notably the color of the zombie's eyes as anyone who possesses. These include:
- Samantha: Yellow Eyes
- Richtofen: Blue Eyes
- Ludwig, Willard Wyler, the High Priest, and Elvira: Orange Eyes
- Brutus: Red Eyes
- Avogadro: White Eyes
- Interesting, the Forsaken is the only character that doesn’t have a set eye color for the zombie as it varies from color to color.
