* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has numerous examples, with characters like Kakashi actually ''deepening'' their voices while in battle. Pain's baritone is no less legendary. See also Gaara as voiced by Liam O'Brien and his Japanese [[Creator/AkiraIshida seiyuu.]]

%% * Shao Kahn and Quan Chi in ''{{Mortal Kombat}}''Kombat}}'' have this. They are also serve as the announcers for various installments.


Added DiffLines:

** Also Princess Celestia has this going for her, fitting a feared tyrant, if not for a princess.

** In ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Bane has a voice amplifier that gives him an extremely peculiar contrast between the trope (in vocal range) and jovial, eloquent word choice and mode of speech, in comparison with Tom Hardy's fairly nasal voice.

* Heimdall from the film version of ''{{Film/Thor}}'' has one, courtesy of Idris Elba. It gives him a very fitting air of gravitas. Creator/ChrisHemsworth as the titular thundergod has a powerful, deep voice as well, rather fittingly making him sound like the hero of an ancient epic.

* 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.

* The cast of GameOfThrones presents a wide array of delightful voices. On the lower side of the register we have:
** [[GameOfThronesHouseLannister Tywin Lannister]], played by CharlesDance. He sounded as intimidating as he looked.
** [[GameOfThronesHouseBolton Roose Bolton]], played by MichaelMcElhatton. His soft and deep voice ceirtanly made his scheming less annoying than Littlefinger's.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Castiel. Also, Jensen Ackles noticeably starts using a deeper voice in any extended conversation with him. It's like they're trying to out-badass each other. Creator/MishaCollins has said that he regrets it - he thought he would only be a guest star and was just trying to sound badass, but when he was brought back to be a [[AscendedExtra major supporting character]] he was forced to keep it, and finds using the voice so much to be annoying, difficult and mildly painful.

* Music/{{Ringo Starr}} is this. He is a badass, despite allegedly not even being the best drummer in [[Music/TheBeatles the Beatles]], and listening to him sing will tell you that he is a baritone.

* The Fourth Doctor from ''Series/DoctorWho'' has an unusual, velvety voice about an octave deeper than all of the other Doctors. For the most part this is used to make the Doctor seem more commanding and suggest a gravitas he might otherwise disguise - yeah, he comes in dressed in a ridiculous outfit handing out sweets and smiling at people, but no-one with a voice like that could possibly be as weak and undistinguished as he initially [[ObfuscatingStupidity likes to appear]]. A couple of the more interesting exploitations: In "The Deadly Assassin" he speaks in a higher pitched voice while trying to [[JanitorImpersonationInfiltration appear beneath the notice of some other characters]]. In "The Robots of Death" he develops one of his more specific NewPowersAsThePlotDemands when we discover Time Lord larynxes aren't affected by helium, just so he can continue sounding cool in one specific scene. In "The Power of Kroll" he generates a subsonic frequency that [[MakeMeWannaShout shatters a window]].
