* Played for laughs in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' after Dee-Dee's voice became a very exaggerated baritone after fooling around with a piece of Dexter's equipment too much. (But it worked out for her in the end; she joined a Barbershop Quartet.)

** Twelfth Doctor has gravelly voice with wide range, which can occasionally drop quite low. It's worth noticing that Peter Capaldi sometimes on purpose imitates Tom Baker's voice, who played abovementioned Fourth Doctor.

Added DiffLines:

* Any character played by Creator/JamesSpader is sure to be this, but the best example may be Raymond Reddington from ''Series/TheBlacklist''. He has an incredibly smooth, deep voice that is sheer pleasure to listen to, and he is easily the most dangerous character in the show (if you get on the wrong side of him, anyway).

Added DiffLines:

* CharltonHeston famously had one of the deepest, most heroic voices in the history of cinema, which is probably why he was a natural for playing larger than life heroes in films like ''The Ten Commandments'', ''Ben-Hur'', etc.

* In the ''Franchise//{Halo}'' franchise, most male [[SuperSoldier Spartans]] speak this way, with the [[TheHero Master Chief]] especially having a very recognizable smooth baritone (which sounds even deeper due to that he [[TheStoic hardly ever raises his voice]]). On the other side, every male Sangheili[=/=][[ReportingNames Elite]] has a very deep voice, with some also fitting under GutturalGrowler (incidentally, ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' has revealed that the females have a similar ContraltoOfDanger). The [[KillerSpaceMonkey Jiralhanae]][=/=][ReportingNames Brutes]], meanwhile, have voices so deep and [[GutturalGrowler rough]] they border on BassoProfundo.

* From the ''[[Franchise/StarCraft]]'' universe, while most named male Protoss we meet "speak" in a smooth tenor, [[DarkIsNotEvil Zera]][[OldMaster tul]] has a deep, slightly gravely baritone voice ([[TheOtherDarrin voices]], rather). On the human side, [[ScaryBlackMan Gabriel Tosh]] has a deep voice coupled with a Caribbean accent, while Tychus Findlay's smooth and very deep baritone (almost a basso) is accompanied by a smooth Southern drawl.

** Souther from ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' has a voice that might well be deeper than is actually naturally possible. Oddly enough, Toki the KungFuJesus has his own Badass Baritone going on. The main character, Kenshiro, prefers high-pitched "A-TA-TA" sounds.
* Whenever English dub Version of [[Manga/DragonBall Goku]] goes Super Saiyan 3, he invokes this trope by lowering his voice an octave to show he means business. And let's not get started on the badassery that is Super Saiyan 4...
** The Brazilian dub turned Frieza into one of this.
** HidekatsuShibata: Voiced [[Manga/{{Naruto}} The Third Hokage,]] [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist King]] [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Bradley]] and [[Manga/FairyTail Igneel.]]

** The Brazilian dub and Mexican dubs turned Frieza into one of this.
** Cell's voice is this in both the Japanese and Mexican dubs. In Japanese, his voice is more booming due to him being voiced by Creator/NorioWakamoto; in the Mexican dub, his voice is more guttural.
