* The earliest ''{{Peanuts}}'' specials were done this way -- since Charles Schulz and Bill Melendez insisted on real child voice actors, some of whom couldn't yet read, dialogue was fed to the kids line-by-line or sometimes ''word-by-word'', and the lines we hear are often spliced together from the kids reciting the words or lines back. Arguably the best example is Sally's confused speech ("All I want is what I...have coming to me! All I want is my fair share!") in ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''. This unique "sound" quickly became such an expected element of the specials that it continued to be followed, even when mixing software and better techniques could have smoothed things over a bit.

** A far crueler example is when Holmes fakes his own death for ''three years'', leaving Watson alone even though his wife has died. Upon Holmes's return, Watson is quick to reprimand him for this. Holmes states that it was essential the world believed him dead, and Watson's behavior wouldn't be convincing enough if it was an act. The cruelty is mitigated by the fact that Holmes was lying low to protect both his life and Watson's, and explaining that the death of Watson's wife was the reason he ended his isolation.

* The director is trying to make a performance more realistic--the primary form of this trope. The applications of this range from not telling your actor that their love interest is returning to not warning them when the chainsaw-wielding maniac bursts through the door.
* Another actor does or says something that causes the actors he's working with to react in an unplanned way--usually by trying not to [[{{Corpsing}} burst out laughing]]. The directors decide to ThrowItIn.

* In the third ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' movie, Shinji has no lines [[spoiler: after Kaworu's HeroicSacrifice]]. This was not the case in the original script, but after the crew finished recording the [[spoiler: death scene]], Megumi Ogata became so upset that she couldn't finish her lines. The writers hastily rewrote the ending so that Shinji spends the remainder of the movie in a HeroicBSOD state.

** Creator/VicMignogna was not informed of what lay on the other side of the Gate prior to dubbing the scene in which Edward Elric passes through it. The surprise in Edward's voice upon seeing [[spoiler:Zeppelins]], therefore, is quite real. Vic wasn't given any more of the script than his own lines in chunks (which were recorded in chronological order) for the last three episodes. Now that's what you call enforced.

* Jordan Nagai, the kid who voiced Russell in ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', was "tricked" by the voice director many times in order to get him away from sounding too much like he was acting and give more a genuine response. For example, he was told to run around before giving lines or forced to memorize his lines on the spot. Likewise, in the scene where Russel, giggling, is being tossed playfully in the air by Kevin, the voice director tickled him. This is actually a pretty common practice (the same technique was used for the French actress who played the young Marjane in ''ComicBook/{{Persepolis}}'').

* A bit of unintentional Enforced Method Acting appears on the original Broadway soundtrack of ''Theatre/{{Gypsy}}.'' In the song "Some People," the actor who plays Rose's father has a small line--"You're not gettin' eighty-eighty ''cents'' out of me, Rose." Unfortunately, on the day of recording, the actor failed to show up to do the line, so Stephen Sondheim himself ended up recording it--and he was so pissed off at the actor for not being there that the anger came across as genuine, prompting a similarly angry response from Ethel Merman.

* Supposedly, when creating the soundtrack for ''Great Moments with Mr Lincoln'' for the 1964 World's Fair and then Ride/{{Disney|ThemeParks}}land, Walt Disney kept having voice actor Royal Dano redo the entire speech, complaining about small things that made it "not quite right," until Dano was absolutely exhausted, and could barely make it to the end, at which point Disney said it was perfect, that it was what a weary Lincoln would have sounded like. He may have had a point, as the speech still induces shivers half a century later.

** He also deliberately switched the casting of Big Boss's two motion actors - the man who played him during talking scenes was a motion actor who specialized in acrobatics, and the man who played him during action scenes was a motion actor who specialized in talking scenes. This resulted in a lot of serendipitous responses, particularly during the love scenes with EVA - for instance, when EVA leans in to kiss him in the mountaintop bolthole, his motion actor, unused to doing love scenes, froze up and pulled back nervously. It was very in character for Snake, so it was kept and Kojima later said it was one of his favourite touches.
* For the recording sessions of ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'', the actors playing Walker, Adams and Lugo recorded all their lines together in one room, in hopes that a realistic character dynamic would develop between them. They also recorded all their lines in chronological sequence in long, tiring sessions, such that by the end of the recording sessions they were tired, angry and eager to go home - just like the characters themselves.

* In his 150th episode ''WebVideo/BennettTheSage'' received a beatdown by a number of other internet personalities with wiffle bats, concluding with [[WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay Woolie]] cracking a pool cue on him to knock him to the floor. The pool cue was breakable, but it broke in a completely different area, meaning Bennett really did have a pool cue broken on his back. He shows off the bruise in the outtakes with Marc joking that they were filming an assault.
