* DeadpanSnarker: Comes across as a bit of one on his Twitter, and two of his most [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration well known]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic roles]] are big ones as well.

->''"[[Creator/GeneRoddenberry Roddenberry]] warned me that I had no idea what I was getting into with ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Star Trek]]''. Someone should have warned me about ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony]]!'' Egads!"''

John de Lancie's voice is quite distinctive and has lent it to several cartoons and video games. Notable roles include Dr. Quest in ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuestTheRealAdventures'', Desmond's father William Miles in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations'', Professor Fitz Quadwrangle in ''VideoGame/QuantumConundrum'', Alarak in ''Franchise/StarCraft'' (including ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm''), and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' [[ReformedButNotTamed semi-]][[HeelFaceTurn reformed]] villain (and Q {{Expy}}) Discord, which is currently his most well known voice-over role thanks to the show's immense popularity. He had completely forgotten he had done anything ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' related[[note]]It was only two episodes after all, and he does a lot of other things[[/note]] by the time a preview clip appeared online, at which point he was overwhelmed by the brony community, noting that at least Creator/GeneRoddenberry warned him about Trekkies beforehand. De Lancie has since come to embrace the bronies and worked on a [[Film/BroniesTheExtremelyUnexpectedAdultFansOfMyLittlePony documentary]] to help shed some light on the fandom.

* NotSoDifferent: He's pointed out that Trekkies and Bronies have quite a lot in common, and has even said that Creator/LaurenFaust reminds him of GeneRoddenberry.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Voiced badass mentor John Lynch in ''WesternAnimation/Gen13TheMovie'' before it was [[ExecutiveMeddling indefinitely shelved by Disney]] (only ever ''[[KeepCirculatingTheTapes officially]]'' released in Australia).
** If a certain someone at DHX Media hadn't spoken up, the role of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Discord]] would've gone to [[PoorMansSubstitute someone else]], and de Lancie likely wouldn't have become so enthralled in the brony community.
** The producers of ''Enterprise'' were hoping to have Q appear in one episode, but John de Lancie turned it down, since it was a prequel series, and having Q show up might [[SeriesContinuityError mess up continuity]].

* HeyItsThatGuy: His very brief appearance as a news reporter in the PhonyNewscast TV movie ''Film/WithoutWarning1994'' was a dead giveaway that it was one of those. Although at the time, they probably figured that he would have only been recognizable to those who watched ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. Neverthless, the producers of this movie took great care to not cast any instantly recognizable actors and actually cast some real news anchors for good measure. Casting an actor that you may or may not recognize was probably an intentional subtle move that was meant to replace the usual repeated atmosphere-killing disclaimers that "This is only a dramatization".

The son of a famous oboist (also named [[LegacyCharacter John de Lancie]]), de Lancie (the actor, by the way) was diagnosed with dyslexia as a child and didn't learn how to read until he was 12. At the age of 14 he was in a production of ''Theatre/HenryV'', setting him on the road of acting. He studied acting at Kent State University around the time of the 1970 shootings there. Eventually in the 1970s, he got television work in small character roles in such series like ''TheSixMillionDollarMan'' and ''Series/BattlestarGalactica1978'' as well as two doctor characters in the final ''Series/{{Emergency}}'' TV Movies.
