* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Creator/AaronDismuke did the voice of Alphonse in the English dub of the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 anime]], but puberty made it impossible for him to reprise the role for ''Brotherhood''--so he did the voice for Al's father, Hohenheim, as a young man.
** There also exists another gag: Creator/LuciChristian, who played the 2003 anime's incarnation of Wrath, provides the voice of the Truth in ''Brotherhood''. Both characters are strikingly similar in that [[spoiler:both meet Edward at the GateOfTruth and end up taking his arm and leg for themselves, keeping them until the end of the storylines they appear in (except Wrath loses both limbs while the Truth keeps Ed's leg)]]. Considering the Truth simply shares the same voice actor as the one it appears before in the original Japanese language, the fact that they had a single person to portray a character that had something in common with one of her earlier roles in the franchise couldn't be called anything less than a tribute.

Added DiffLines:

* Tommy 'Tiny' Lister, a guy known for being typecast as the ScaryBlackMan, voices a cute, tiny animal in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''...whose got an aggressive personality that is not that far off from the ScaryBlackMan character he usually plays. It's just that, this time, he's not intimidating at all due to his looks and stature, while in his live action movies, he's very intimidating.
** His character in ''Disney/FishHooks'' is also a parody of his ScaryBlackMan persona, seeing as he plays a drama coach with a rather aggressive personality.

* In ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}'', Creator/MamoruMiyano voiced the DeadpanSnarker secretary agent Keigo Tatewaki. His ComicallySerious demeanor brings back [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Setsuna F. Seiei]]'s portrayal in the CD dramas.
** Creator/MiyukiSawashiro as well. Her portrayal of Opal in Kira Deco oozes ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}''. Even better, she's the voice of Twilight Sparkle (who'll become an alicorn) in the Japanese dub of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.

* Cameo Version: In an episode of ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'', Roseanne and Jackie are getting makeovers at a health spa. The makeup artist talks about "less is more" and letting their faces tell their own story. When she turns around, we see for the first time it was Tammy Faye Bakker. [[note]][[DontExplainTheJoke For those too young to get the reference]], Tammy Faye is the wife of notorious televangelist Jim Bakker. She was known for wearing copious amounts of makeup, on par with Mimi from ''TheDrewCareyShow''.[[/note]]
