[[RunningGag Happily, Your Highness!]] Born John Jay Bosch, Johnny Yong Bosch ([[FanNickname Fan Abbreviation]]: JYB) is a former ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' star (he was [[ThrowItIn a frog]]) who has since moved on to {{anime}} voice acting, starting as Vash the Stampede in ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', and has since moved on to other lead roles. This coincidentally pitted him as the star and hero for the ONLY TWO new anime Creator/AdultSwim was running for a year and a half- this streak ended when ''Anime/CodeGeass'' completed its run in May 2009. This plus the earlier run of ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' led many to call the starting anime block "The JYB Power Hour". When combined with his role as Ichigo in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Adult Swim meant two things: shows from Williams Street, and shows starring JYB. He is the vocalist for his own band, Eyeshine. Oh, and he's an accomplished martial artist who can [[{{Badass}} kick]] [[IKnowKarate your ass]].

* KidHero: Ever since his PlayingAgainstType role of [[Anime/EurekaSeven Renton Thurston]], he's been getting ''some'' roles where he uses a higher-pitch voice that casts him into younger characters. We've got [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Emil]], [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Almaz]], [[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan Sakura Kusakabe]], [[VideoGame/FragileDreamsFarewellRuinsOfTheMoon Seto]], [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Xiba]], [[Anime/TenkaiKnights Guren]], and [[Anime/{{Doraemon}} Noby]]; they all have a higher pitched voice in stark contrast to his older characters like [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Ichigo Kurosaki]].

* DumbIsGood: If his character is good, he's generally not that intelligent. If his character is smart, he's generally [[ManipulativeBastard not very good]].
** Ichigo Kurosaki is an interesting aversion to this trope, because while he's got the LeeroyJenkins thing down, he's actually quite intelligent, both in school and in battle. This totally applies to Ichigo's SuperpoweredEvilSide, though.
** Yu Narukami is a complete aversion. Not only is he very smart and resourceful in battle and school, he's also the main hero. Or it's possible said smarts come from eating [[RunningGag stuff out of the fridge]].

* CastingGag: He shares a total of six different roles with Jun Fukuyama (Albert Morcerf from ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'', Lelouch Lamperouge from ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Haruto Sakaki from ''Anime/WitchHunterRobin'', Juto from ''VideoGame/MagnaCarta'', Yukio Okumura from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'') and [[Manga/Cyborg009 Joe Shimamura]] in ''Cyborg 009 VS Devilman''.
** Johnny was the English voice of Creator/DaisukeOno in ''Manga/LuckyStar'' after the two shared the role of Itsuki.



* TheDanza: Johnny Yong Bosch as [[Manga/SpaceDandy Johnny]] and [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jonathan Joestar]].



* FakeBrit: [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Jonathan Joestar]].



* PlayingAgainstType:
** In addition to above mentioned roles, he's voiced a whiny ButtMonkey, Sakura Kusakabe, from ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan''.
** And as Rossiu in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Since he usually plays HotBlooded {{Large Ham}}s, you'd think the man would be right at home in a series where [[WorldOfHam more than half the cast fits that description]], but he voices one of the few characters who ''doesn't'' chew the scenery.
** And mentally unstable psychopaths such as [[LightNovel/FateZero Ryuunosuke Uryuu]], [[VideoGame/KillerIsDead Tokio]], [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Kyouji Shinkawa]], [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Adachi]], [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasori]], and [[Anime/{{K}} Saruhiko Fushimi]].
** Fuji from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'' is a friendly, calm, ever-smiling DudeLooksLikeALady who's voiced by a woman in the original Japanese.
** Kurosawa from ''VideoGame/BinaryDomain'', as he's not only a ByTheBookCop ReasonableAuthorityFigure, he also gave the character a Japanese accent, which surprised many people since [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent he rarely does accents in his voice work]].
** People familiar with ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' were surprised by the decision to cast him as Orga. Personality-wise, Orga's actually not too far off from his usual typecast (he's a essentially a young leader who's rough around the edges) but Creator/YoshimasaHosoya's vocal range is [[BadassBaritone noticeably lower and gruffer/huskier]] than what Johnny's known for. [[https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1084723564900196 He himself said that he'd initially auditioned for Mikazuki, and had to prepare for every IBO session in a certain way.]]
* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** Usually plays either [[TheLancer alongside]] or [[TheRival opposite]] to Creator/YuriLowenthal. [[Anime/Persona4TheAnimation And once]], ''[[ActingForTwo both]]''.
** Also worked with Creator/CrispinFreeman in many of the voice acting work, either as [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya a]] [[Manga/WolfsRain steadfast]] [[Anime/WitchHunterRobin ally]] ([[Anime/EurekaSeven or]] [[Anime/LastExile understudy]]) or [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} overly]] [[Anime/CodeGeass smug]] rival, as well as [[VideoGame/GodsEaterBurst inferior]].
** His characters also tend to get paired with those played by Creator/StephanieSheh, Creator/MichelleRuff, or Creator/LauraBailey, the first two especially so.
*** An interesting case with Stephanie Sheh and Johnny Yong Bosch in ''Anime/KillLaKill'' [[spoiler:where Johnny's character is actually an alter ego of Stephanie's character]].
** Johnny and Creator/DanSouthworth are both former PowerRangers who also did voice work together in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4'' (Johnny as Nero and Dan as Credo and Virgil) and ''VideoGame/UltimateMarvelVsCapcom3'' (Johnny as [[MegaManX Zero]] and Dan reprising his role as Vergil).
