* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: A handful of his most memorable voices are some variation on Larry Fine of Film/TheThreeStooges (Stimpy is basically Larry, but high-pitched so as not to sound like "a depressed old Jewish man"). He was even hired as a dialect coach for the 2012 ''Stooges'' movie.

...and all of this after he first came to public attention as the voice of both Doug and Roger on ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' and both title characters of ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'' after Creator/JohnKricfalusi (the original voice of Ren) was fired[[note]]Ironically, Billy West auditioned for both Ren and Stimpy when the show was being created, but was given the Stimpy role after John K. decided to do Ren's voice himself. He's also stated that it was such an ordeal that he'll never work with John K. again.[[/note]]. He (along with Joe Alaskey) has become one of few voice actors who can impersonate Creator/MelBlanc in his prime, including characterizations of WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, [[ElmuhFuddSyndwome Elmer Fudd]] and other characters from the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes. He's also the Red M&M. Even before he was known for all these roles, West worked in radio, and was actually a cast member of ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'' from 1989-1995. He was also Rayman in a short-lived CG cartoon based on the video games he came from.

** He revealed on Podcast/TalkinToonsWithRobPaulsen that he was a voice match for Della Reece of all people in the video game adaptation of the film ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}''.
* VocalDissonance: He claims to have based the voice of Phillip J. Fry on himself when he was 25 years old. It's ''barely'' any different from the way he sounds now. He's in his mid-60s and yet the very youthful voices of Fry, Doug, and the Red M&M are the voices he does that are closest to his natural speaking voice.
