* ''[[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist 2003]]'': 2003]]'' English dub:



* According to ''Manga/GundamSousei'', Creator/ToruFuruya was having trouble with the iconic "You hit me! You hit me twice! Even my father never hit me!" line. So Creator/YoshiyukiTomino hit him. Twice. It's [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory unclear if anything of the sort actually happened]], but we are talking about a man who got the nickname "KillEmAll" while making cartoons [[MerchandiseDriven for a toy company]].



* While recording the scene in ''Anime/SummerWars'' where Natsuki is crying over the [[spoiler:death of her Grandmother]], Creator/BrinaPalencia recalled memories of her own [[spoiler:late Grandmother]] whom she was extremely close to. Pretty much any time Natsuki is crying in the film Brina was crying in the recording booth.

Pretty much any time Natsuki is crying in the film Brina was crying in the recording booth.



* During the scene where Big Boss meets Granin in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', Creator/HideoKojima had Granin's motion actor drink real whiskey to the point where he was absolutely smashed and kept forgetting his lines.
** 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.

* In ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', the voice actors for Adam Jensen and Megan Reed (being a married couple [=IRL=]) had an argument on the day where they were to record a scene where their characters were arguing. They decided not to resolve their own argument until after the voice recording session, so as to add even more realism to the scene.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel II'' during the scene [[spoiler: revealing that Osborne was alive and that Crow's attempt to assassinate him was in vain]], Rean reaches for him, grabs him, and yells with so much emotion that he never shows off for most of the game. This is because Creator/SeanChiplock, who voices [[TheHero Rean]], had issues with his real life father at the time when he recorded the line. Which then gave the moment a very convincing [[spoiler: LukeIAmYourFather moment.]]

* In the first episode of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qbt1h_XBRgU Ben McYellow Returns]] series, the title character's...butler(?) Jeeves pours him a disgusting mixture of dishwashing liquid, tap water, hand soap, and honey into a coffee cup, which he then drinks. The cup of water that actor Aidan Childers drank actually did have a small drop of toothpaste in it, the look of disgust on his face is completely genuine.

* Spoofed in the Behind the Sences feature for ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}''. Creator/AmberNash, who plays Pam on the show, was showing some of the voice acting tricks they used and the script called for her to shout "Bear Claws!" while eating one of them. To do this, the Voice Director provided the real pastry and had Nash do several takes where she would stuff her mouth full and then shouting the line. After multiple takes, Nash is disgusted by the thought of eating another Bear Claw and the director, frustrated with this development and no good take, [[WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis ask the script writers if they can change the events so that the line is shouted, then Pam eats the bear claw, which the writers say is okay. Amber is visibly not amused.]]

* The first chapter of ''Manga/GundamSousei'' (a {{Dramatization}} of the production of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'') does this with the infamous 'BrightSlap' scene by having Creator/YoshiyukiTomino punch Creator/ToruFuruya in the face after several unimpressive line reads.
** Another chapter shows Creator/ShuichiIkeda going for drinks with cast members after each day of recording finished, except Creator/ToruFuruya, [[JerkAssFacade who he was distant towards]], to reflect the uncomfortable relationship between Char and Amuro. Once the final episode wrapped up, Ikeda invited Furuya out for drinks, which began a friendship reflected in Char and Amuro's interactions in ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam''. This worked largely because of the Japanese concept of [[http://factsanddetails.com/japan.php?itemid=662&catid=19&subcatid=124 "social drinking"]], which is an ''extremely'' important side of work interaction. Ikeda inviting everyone ''but'' Furuya would be considered as one of the most rude things he could do to a fellow co-worker.

* In the video for the {{Music/Gorillaz}} song "DARE," most of the focus [[ADayInTheLimelight is on Noodle]], while the male band members only make brief appearances. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnBEZ2QvMwY According to Noodle,]] this is because [[LockedOutOfTheLoop she didn't actually tell them]] she was making the video that day. As a result, 2D and Russel are extremely confused by the noise coming out of Noodle's room, and Murdoc slept through the whole thing [[CrowningMomentOfFunny until the camera crew went into his bedroom and woke him up]].

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Yukana was never told her character (C.C.) was gonna die in the first episode. In fact, nobody knew how long their character was going to last throughout the first season, so much of their death cries were probably real (don't fire me!).

* The original Japanese voice recording of Setsuko in ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies'' was heavily enforced since the voice actor, Ayano Shiraishi, was only five years old during the recording.[[note]]The director wanted to cast voice actors that were close to the age of the characters to make the movie more realistic.[[/note]] This meant that they had to record her lines before animating the scenes and since they were unused with this they tried to avoid angles where her mouth could be seen to avoid MouthFlaps.
