* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** He and Creator/TomokazuSeki voice Kanji Tatsumi and Mitsunari Ishida.
** Also with another seiyuu and with his other StarMakingRole: He and Creator/KosukeToriumi voice Yuri Lowell, Eikichi Mishina, and [[VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward Sigma]].
** After ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', he and Creator/AliHillis have curiously been working together often. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Snow and Lightning]], [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Ryu Hayabusa and Mizuki]], [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Palutena and Arlon/Pyrrhon]], [[VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesII Dirk and Audrey Gassenarl]], [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Pain and Karin]], [[VideoGame/MassEffect3 Kai Leng and Liara T'soni]]...
** He and Creator/LauraBailey also seem to be working together on multiple occasions ([[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Nova and Chun-Li]], [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Mitsunari Ishida and Oichi]], [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Kanji Tatsumi and Rise Kujikawa]], [[VideoGame/{{Catherine}} Vincent Brooks and Catherine]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasy Snow Villiers and Serah Farron]] , [[Manga/SoulEater Excalibur and Maka Albarn]], [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Booker DeWitt and Lady Comstock]], [[WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble Hawkeye and Black Widow]], [[VideoGame/InfinityBlade Siris and Isaline]], [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Espio and Blaze]], [[VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon Delsin Rowe and Abigail "Fetch" Walker]], and [[VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands Rhys and Fiona]]).
** Not to mention fellow Funimation veteran Creator/TravisWillingham. ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'' almost looks like a CG buddy flick [[InkSuitActor with the two]].
** He's also teamed up with Creator/JenniferHale many times.

* StarMakingRole:
** He had two in 2008: Yuri Lowell in ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' and Kanji Tatsumi in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. However, arguably the former could be consider the most important one, since ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' came out several months earlier and most of the characters he's made ever since are more similar to Yuri than to Kanji. Still, with Kanji he proved his incredible versatility.
** Snow from ''FFXIII'' is arguably the third big one for him. After that, he started landing more and more game roles.
** 2013 turned out to be yet another year of star making roles, with highly acclaimed lead roles in three of the most critically acclaimed games of the year: Booker [=DeWitt=] in ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'', Joel in ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'', and the Joker in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins''.

* OneOfUs: A self-proclaimed "geek" who likes his anime and video games. A few examples stand out:
** A few days after this page was posted on Troy's official Facebook fanpage, he mentioned at a convention the similarities between Ganryu and Kariya, and his PTSD whenever he sees Creator/JohnnyYongBosch. Coincidence?
** In WebVideo/TableTop [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU9FzW5QyEg S2E15: Unspeakable Words]], he opens by playing '''''Trope''''' as a word.

* TheCastShowoff: Having originally been a singer and guitarist before becoming a voice actor, some of the games Troy has worked on take advantage of this. Among them include ''Resident Evil 6'', where he sings the ending theme of Jake Muller's campaign and ''Bioshock Infinite''[='=]s "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" sequence.

* PlayingAgainstType:
** [[CampGay Shadow]] [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Kanji]]. Actual [=YouTube=] comment: "Why, Troy Baker, why?"
** If flamboyance could count as against type, then [[VideoGame/{{Persona 2}} Eikichi]] probably qualifies too.
** His performance as [[WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Michael Korvac]] seems to draw mostly from feelings of paranoia and fear.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Snow]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 Villiers]] is a famous example.
** [[VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron Jazz]] is also a good example.
** A younger version of Creator/MarkHamill's Joker in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins''.
** In recent years, Troy has completely avoided being typecast as he plays a wide variety of distinct roles; in ''Kid Icarus'' alone, his two characters are [[TheStoic polar]] [[LargeHam opposites]].

* PromotedFanboy:
** He's a huge fan of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', and would later get to voice [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Two-Face, Robin]], [[VideoGame/LEGOAdaptationGame Batman]], [[VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs Nightwing]] and [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins Joker]].
** Was also a huge fan of ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' and got to work with Naughty Dog on ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs''.
** This has now come full circle with him being cast as Nathan Drake's brother in ''Uncharted 4''.
