Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Let's say you're a king or queen that has a special announcement for your loyal subjects to hear and rejoice upon... how do you communicate it? Simple! You gather all your underlings into a large courtyard outside your castle walls while you stand in all your glory high above them relaying the good news. This serves the purpose of communicating to hundreds of people at once, while simultaneously demonstrating your utter magnificence and allowing you to appear literally larger than life.
Fictional and actual royal families, along with other people of significance, have been using this method for centuries to spread the word. Surprisingly, in the fictional world at least, the royalty is never at a loss for poor sods to fill the courtyard below, even if they are less-than-popular. Of course, if that's the case, expect The Hero and his crew to stage a very appropriate interruption of the events.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The message needn't be all that positive either. Perhaps the king wishes to appear sympathetic to the country's recent outbreak of The Plague or maybe the almighty emperor wishes to fire up his troops before going off to war. No matter the reason, it seems that leaders can't help but stick to the good, old castle balconies when it comes to the presentation.
Since it pertains primarily to royalty and nobility, this trope creeps up quite often in fantasy-related material, but can be found anytime a leader has a castle, fortress, tower, or similarly large structure. In non-fantasy settings, expect such a scene to show up when Putting on the Reich.

King Smurf in The Smurfs comic book story of the same name (and its Animated Adaptation) delivers one from the balcony of his newly-finished royal palace, thanking his "loyal" subjects for its completion. However, only one Smurf remains standing to give applause to the speech, saying "Long live King Smurf".

In The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, John Lithgow, portraying Earth scientist Dr. Emilio Lazardo who is possessed by alien villain Lord John Warfan gives such a speech to his men before taking off to invade their home world in another dimension. He constantly mugs in the style of Benito Mussolini (making you wonder which personality knew about that) including a rousing call to arms:

Water (1985). The Cascaran Liberation Front (all two of them) try singing to the masses to make them turn away from signing up with American oil company Spenco. No-one pays much attention until an American executive, annoyed at their bad singing, offers a hundred bucks to anyone who nails them. An attempt to escape from the balcony by jumping onto a pair of bicycles doesn't end well.

Used several times in Avatar: The Last Airbender, as befits the the Fire Nation.
When Admiral Zhao captures Aang, he makes a Balcony Speech to his troops, complete with bombastic statements about Fire being the "Superior Element".
When Azula and Zuko return to the Fire Nation, Li and Lo announce them to a crowd which is understandably thrilled to hear the war is practically won.
When Firelord Ozai finally departs to do something, he announces to the Imperial Firebenders supporting him that he is now the PHOENIX KING!

Gulcasa delivers one of these in Blaze Union at his coronation. The recipients of the speech—the remnants of the former Imperial Army and the nobility, who have never been exposed to his ideals—are initially ambivalent towards their new sovereign, thinking "at least it's impossible for this guy to be worse than our last emperor". Once Gulcasa is done talking, he has their complete and undying loyalty.
In Yggdra Union, Gulcasa's rejection of Yggdra's demands for his unconditional surrender is also one of these, as he's standing atop the city ramparts and addressing the enemy army gathered beneath.
