** Hagrid was written for Robbie Coltrane's voice. Millions have tried, and failed to get ''"Yer a wizard, Harry"''out of their heads.

* Try reading ''The Maltese Falcon'' after watching [[Film/TheMalteseFalcon the film]] without hearing HumphreyBogart, PeterLorre, Sidney Greenstreet and Mary Astor in their roles.

* Just ''try'' to read the lyrics to a song you know, and read them in your head as if they were a poem or spoken words and ''not'' to the tune of the song. [[SchmuckBait Just try it]].

* Similarly, it's basically impossible to hear an instrumental demo for a song without the lyrics for the finished one popping out on your mind. For instance, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qe1X3yOWhdA this old]] Eddie VanHalen track has plenty of comments noticing its resurgence as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8y1prHEP7E a full song]].

** Some people still prefer Bowser's more human voice in the UsefulNotes/GameCube era. Doesn't help that James' Bowser seldom speaks, much less a full sentence compared to Burns' Bowser.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII,'' the character Cait Sith was a robotic cat with no discernible idiosyncrasies in speech or diction, expressed or implied. As of the fully-voiced 'Compilation' entries, however, he has a thick Scottish accent.
* It's hard not to picture [[VideoGame/HalfLife Gordon Freeman]] ''not'' sounding like his ''FreemansMind'' incarnation should he ever talk, if only because it's the most popular version of giving him a voice. ''And that's a fan-made rendition of him.'' It doesn't help that his actor bears a fair resemblance to Gordon, which he showed because some people complained they can't imagine that voice coming from Gordon.

* Are you an aspiring amateur YouTube voice actor and want to make your own [[{{VideoGame/Metroid}} Ridley]] voice? Be prepared to see your comments section flooded with complaints that you didn't give him [[{{LetsPlay/Slowbeef}} a screechy New Jersey accent]].
* People who've seen ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'' will have a good chance of imaging Dedede with his southern voice and Meta Knight with his Spanish voice
** So it becomes a problem when you hear Meta Knight's voice in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' as it just sounds like a deep, gravelly, menacing voice... until you listen real closely. He still has the accent!

* [[https://youtu.be/MgxK5vm6lvk Putting a unit of time]] (particularly ''"One [X] later..."''') on a tiki-style background, ala ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', will probably make you read the unit of time in a MockCousteau voice.

* An often obscured argument in the old "dub vs. sub" wars is that some audience members prefer a character they ''largely can't understand'' simply because of voice intonation, while others prefer a newer interpretation if the original is seen as an overdone PigeonholedVoiceActor.
** It's even possible, with a sub, to "hear" the character speaking English in the non-English VA's voice when you try to remember it, because you were paying attention to how the voice sounded and the English subs, not the exact sounds the voice actor was making.

* Who can read ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' and not think of the late, great [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends Lorenzo Music]]? It probably helps that every voice given to the character since has at least sounded like an imitation of his performance.



* Those who watched the ''WesternAnimation/{{Dilbert}}'' cartoon probably have trouble reading [[ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}} the actual comic]] without hearing Daniel Stern as Dilbert, Larry Miller as The Pointy-Haired Boss, Gordon Hunt as Wally, Creator/KathyGriffin as Alice, Creator/TomKenny as Asok and Ratbert, etc.
* Similarly, readers of ''ComicStrip/OverTheHedge'' will [[Film/OverTheHedge forever hear]] Creator/BruceWillis as RJ, Garry Shandling as Verne, and Steve Carrell as Hammy.
* Try reading the ''{{ComicStrip/Popeye}}'' comics without imagining Popeye with Jack Mercer's interpretation of the character, from the raspy voice to the almost impish-like mumbling.

** Creator/TomHiddleston as SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}} has recently became the most popular portrayal and may be the default voice of the character for some newer fans.
