''Basso profundo'' (also spelled ''Basso profondo'') is the technical term for the lowest of all voices. To qualify, the character must be able to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Z6gVn6qwAA give a tuba a run for its money when it comes to low notes.]] Many may be "Oktavists", men who sing a ''full octave'' below the normal bass range. Also known as Russian Bass due to its prevalence in Russian Orthodox chant and other Slavic music.

* Music/JonathanYoung, known for his covers of Disney music. Sometimes it fits really well, like when he's doing [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]] or [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Frollo.]] But then you hear him doing [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]] or [[Disney/{{Hercules}} the Muses]]... Somehow, it still works.
