The Howie scream has made sparse appearances in multiple rips since it's a common stock sound effect. It first appeared in the pre-reboot medley rip "Final Destination - Super Smash Bros. Brawl".
In reality, Loud Nigra was not banned during the reboot, but the team had already been using Loud Nigra less often at that point, so much so that people actually thought it was gone and replaced by the Howie scream. The team decided to incorporate the Howie scream into the lore in recognition of this.
