* This, combined with PlayingAgainstType, was the stated reason Creator/JunFukuyama was cast as the MagnificentBastard AntiHero lead in ''Anime/CodeGeass'', while Suzaku, the KnightInShiningArmor, is played by Creator/TakahiroSakurai, known for playing {{Anti Hero}}es. The director wanted the dissonance since both characters are trying desperately to be something they're not. For the English dub Creator/JohnnyYongBosch, best known for being a former {{Power Ranger|s}} and [[Manga/Bleach Ichigo Kurosaki]], and Creator/YuriLowenthal, best known for [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasuke Uchiha]], were given the same respective roles, with the original director having a hand in their casting as well.

* The voice cast of ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'' includes Creator/ZacEfron, who's the star of the ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' series, and Creator/TaylorSwift, who's Taylor Swift. Even though the movie is basically a musical, neither of their characters ever sings a note (Swift has yet to take an acting role that involves singing, whether in-character or as part of its soundtrack).

** In an episode, ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} jokingly mentions that ComicBook/BlackCanary being gagged is for the best since she has a horrendous singing voice. Black Canary's voice actress, GreyDeLisle, is a Grammy-winning professional singer.

* Creator/JessHarnell as [[ComicBook/{{Asterix}} Cacofonix]] in ''[[Recap/AsterixAndTheNormans Asterix and the Vikings]]''. In reality, Jess can sing quite well (he possesses a ''quadruple-octave'' vocal range and is a member of a band called Rock Sugar).

In reality, Jess can sing quite well (he possesses a ''quadruple-octave'' vocal range and is a member of a band called Rock Sugar). Somewhat lampshaded in the animated feature film ''Asterix and the Big Fight'' where Cacofonix's singing actors Jean-Jacques Cramier and George Harrison do a amazing rock song, only to be knocked out like always with the villagers declaring him a horrible singer (it is implied at least in that scene that he is a brilliant singer, but way ahead of his time).

* In ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', Carlotta is a shrill, shrieky Opera singer who is beginning to get on in years. She's been played by many talented and wonderful singers, who switch from her shrieking voice during the parts where she's supposed to sound badly into a perfect operetta during the ensemble musical numbers.

She's been played by many talented and wonderful singers, who switch from her shrieking voice during the parts where she's supposed to sound badly into a perfect operetta during the ensemble musical numbers. After all, even when she sings badly, she is ''still'' supposed to reach a high note during it.
