** The English dub actor Creator/ChrisPatton has played the younger versions of two of his characters as well: Joshua Christopher in ''ChronoCrusade'' (who was played by a woman in the Japanese version) and Fakir in ''Anime/PrincessTutu''. In the audio commentary for ''Chrono Crusade'', it's revealed that they used a mixture of Chris speaking higher and some editing to make it work.

* In the original English dub of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', Zoisite was voiced by a woman, Kirsten Bishop. Unlike most versions of this trope, this was done to [[HideYourGays get rid of the homosexual themes between himself and Kunzite (or "Malachite" as he is called in that dub)]], so they rewrote Zoisite to be a woman, due to his somewhat feminine looks. This was averted in the Creator/VizMedia English dub, where they kept the homosexual relationship intact (on Toei's request), and had Zoisite voiced by a [[Creator/LucienDodge male voice]] like in the original Japanese version.

** It's probably worth noting that Greg Ayres (the actor of Negi from ''Negima'' mentioned above) has been cast three times in dubs for young characters voiced by Akira Ishida in the original: Kaworu Nagisa of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Chrono of ''Anime/ChronoCrusade'' and Satoshi Hiwatari of ''DNAngel''. In fact, Greg himself tends to be a walking aversion--he was originally hired as a voice actor in the first place ''because'' his natural voice sounds so young.

* In a complete inversion of the usual situation in ''DragonBall Z'', [[FutureBadass Trunks]] was originally introduced as a 17-years-old, played by actor Creator/TakeshiKusao. The role was not recast when Trunks later appeared as an 8-years-old; instead, Kusao used a higher, raspier voice for the character until he grew up again. However, the English version (and pretty much every other dub) cast a female as the younger Trunks.

* In both Singaporean and Brazilian dubs of ''One Piece'', Luffy's voice was done by male voice actors Chuck Powers and Vagner Fagundes, respectively. The Italian dub cast Luigi Rosa for the first 255 episodes and first five movies, with Renato Novara eventually taking over. Before it switched to subbed episodes, the European Portugese dub also used a male.

* Masako Nozawa has portrayed many "young boy" characters over her career. In addition to Goku as mentioned above, she was "Kitaro" (1st and 2nd ''Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro'' series, and "Hakaba Kitaro"), and Tetsuro Hoshino (''GalaxyExpress999''), among other roles. She was also the original Japanese voice of Esteban in "Taiyo no Ko Esteban" (AKA: ''Anime/TheMysteriousCitiesOfGold''). These days however, she prefers "elderly woman" such as Honoka's grandmother in ''Anime/PrettyCure''.
