to:

* ActorAllusion:
** She also voices a pony-parody of possibly [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]] in ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo Pretty Pretty Pegasus]]'', in which her character Raven is a closet fan of.
*** Another pony reference in a DC project; in VideoGame/Injustice2, Tara voices Harley Quinn and can have this exchange with Mr. Freeze at the start of a match.
--->'''Harley Quinn:''' Can you make me a pony?
--->'''Mr. Freeze:''' It shall make the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic twilight sparkle]].
--->'''Harley Quinn:''' I was hoping you'd say that!
** In an episode of ''My Little Pony'', Twilight says "do I look like I speak squirrel?" - a nod to Bubbles of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', who had the power to communicate with animals.
* CastingGag: She plays Comicbook/{{Batgirl|2011}}/Barbara Gordon in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WebAnimation/GothamGirls'', ''WesternAnimation/SuperBestFriendsForever'', and ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman''.
* ContractualPurity: She once turned down a role in a horror film that would have required a topless scene - as she didn't want her young fans (or perverts) looking up pictures of it online. But then again she did list her role in the ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' cartoon as one of her favourites - precisely because it was different from the family friendly stuff she usually did.
* CrossDressingVoices: She voices quite a few boys, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Timmy Turner]], [[WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Terrence]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}} Ben Tennyson]], and [[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown Omi]].
* FakeAmerican: Sort of; she was born in UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}, but her parents are American.
* FakeBrit: As Gwen in ''Film/SabrinaGoesToRome'' and ''Film/SabrinaDownUnder'' and as a hallucination in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''.
* FakeIrish: In ''Jakkers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks''.


Added DiffLines:

* IAmNotSpock: Played with on her twitter, she often posts pictures or fanart of her characters saying things like "Here's me naked!" <screenshot of Timmy Turner>, "Here I am in my sexy swimsuit!" <fanart of Raven>, "[[https://twitter.com/tarastrong/status/248180751940603905 Dancing with yourself is important]]" <fanart of Twilight Sparkle and a pony version of herself>, "Here's me about to give you tongue!" <screenshot of Ember [=McLain=]>.
* MagnumOpusDissonance: Her favourite role is actually Melody in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea'', for reasons detailed below.
* NonSingingVoice: Only in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' where Twilight Sparkle's singing is done by Creator/RebeccaShoichet. This is mainly due to Tara being the only main cast member who records her lines in Los Angeles while the rest of the main cast records in Canada. The cast usually needs to be together to record songs for the show and Tara didn't want to travel back-and-forth and be away from her kids. Tara is actually quite a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W36nxRVZdsc good singer]] and has sung in other roles. This led to in inversion on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where she's the singing voice for Meg because Mila Kunis can't sing.
* OneOfUs: Oh so ''very'' much. Seems to have hit some kind of critical mass with the Brony thing, but it's always been there; one need only check out her interviews. She also follows {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} on Twitter. Yes--THE Chuggaaconroy.
** She came to a recent Comic Con dressed as [[WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack Ashi]] basically showing that she loves the character as much as her fans do, and she hated what happened to her at the end as well!
PlayingAgainstType:
** As [[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions Doctor Octopus 2099]] and [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Harley Quinn]].
** [[WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether Princess Clara, Toot Braunstein]], [[VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw Juliet Starling]], and various female characters on ''{{Brickleberry}}'' are also oddities on her resume, as she's mostly known for being on kids' cartoons (some of which do have ParentalBonus jokes and moments of GettingCrapPastTheRadar, but are still considered children's entertainment).
** She also voices [[DepravedDwarf Ferra]], one half of Ferra/Torr, in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', which is part of a series that's become famous (or infamous, depending on how you look at it) for its over-the-top, gory finishers. [[AvertedTrope More in line with what you'd expect,]] however, is her portrayal of the refugee Li Mei in the same game.
** Lena from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' could be considered the most villainous character that she has ever played, though out of all the three main villains she was the least evil.
* PromotedFangirl: She was a huge ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' fan and got to play Ariel's daughter in the sequel. She often tells the story of when she first met Jodi Benson in the studio, Tara ''burst into TearsOfJoy''.
* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** She often appears alongside Music/GreyDeLisle and Creator/CreeSummer. The fact that they're good friends in real life probably helps.
** She and [[{{Creator/MaxCasella}} Max Casella]] even worked on two projects together: ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidII'' and ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'' (third game onwards).
** She also appeared alongside Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the Franchise/RatchetAndClank games, ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', and plenty more.
** She's also worked alongside her fellow ''Teen Titans'' cast members in other projects, with Creator/ScottMenville and Creator/KharyPayton being the ones she tends to work with the most.
** She and Creator/TabithaStGermain, aside from playing two of the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Mane Six]], have also worked on the latter two WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros cartoons and ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}''.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Any of her UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}} work.
* StarMakingRole:
** While she's known for numerous roles, [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles]] is arguably the role that put her on the map as far as voice actors go.
** Given the success of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Twilight Sparkle is also a turning point in her career.


Added DiffLines:

* TheOtherDarrin: Mary Kay Bergman voiced Timmy Turner in the original ''Fairly Odd Parents'' shorts, and Tara took over after she passed away - continuing to voice Timmy in the proper cartoon.
* * TrollingCreator: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wblE8YYLyQ0 A self-proclaimed, unabashed troll]], she is well known for poking fun at the fans and subverting expectations. For instance, she once promised to have Twilight Sparkle "talk dirty", [[https://vine.co/v/h3BrDbIWuaj and this was the result]]...
* TypeCasting: She has a tendency to play the roles of overly cutesy, hyperactive characters. Largely averted as her career has gone on, as she has [[ManOfAThousandVoices quite a bit of range,]] having played several different age ranges (babies, children [boys and girls, but mostly boys], teenage girls and adult women) as well as playing darker types in addition to cutesy types, such as [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]].
* YouLookFamiliar: Well, you ''sound'' familiar, but Tara first provided the voice of Molly Dolly in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'''s third season - and then starred as Gwen in the spin-off movies.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Creator/LaurenFaust originally wanted Strong to play Pinkie Pie in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' before that role was given to Creator/AndreaLibman. She also did an audition for Applejack.
** She was going to be the second voice of Marie for the sequel for Disney's ''Disney/TheAristocats'' which was planned to be released in 2007 but got cancelled in 2006 once Disney acquired Pixar.
** She very nearly got the role of Julia Salinger in ''Series/PartyOfFive''. The role went to Neve Campbell, who Tara was roommates with at the time. Tara did make a small appearance on the second episode as Lorna.
** She wasn't originally going to be in ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea''. She was brought into the studio to record a template, which producers would then give to a CelebrityVoiceActor. [[PermanentPlaceholder However her performance impressed them enough to cast her as Melody properly]].
** She had planned to give Lena in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' a Cajun accent and spent some time working on it. However Jim Cummings, an expert at the Cajun dialect, said it didn't sound accurate, so she went with a more general southern accent.
** Strong has expressed desire for a role on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' but so far nothing has come out of it yet.
