->''Good morning, Troper-san. Please describe a [[RunningGag 17-year old]] seiyuu named Kikuko Inoue, if you would, please?''

[[PhraseCatcher Oi, oi...]] Anyway, KikukoInoue is a voice actress best known for her motherly, dignified, angelic voice, which lends well for her to get picked to play YamatoNadeshiko, TeamMom, or OneeSama roles. She also specialized in playing mega-bitches like I-No from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', [[MacrossFrontier Grace]], [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Lust]], [[LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima Louise's]] big sister Eleonore and even a Tokusatsu example [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger (Insarn)]]. She is also married and has a young daughter, Houko. She's a member of the Goddess Family Club singing club, and like MegumiHayashibara, she is also part of the singing club [=DoCo=].

If you think mega-bitches are her only "other" role, how about a '''Badass''' ActionMom, to the tune of The Boss in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3?

** Yukariko Steinberg and [[DarkSkinnedBlond Laura Bianchi]] in ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'' and ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome Zwei}}''



She always refers to herself in public as "17 years old" even though she was born in 1964 and no longer looks anywhere ''close'' to 17. This is used as a ShoutOut in ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'' in regards to Midori Sugiura's dubious age; and by Maria in ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' who actually is 17 [[YoungerThanTheyLook but is constantly mistaken for someone older]]; and by Virgilia, who is obviously not 17 years old but is voiced by KikukoInoue, in a ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' [[OnTheNext preview]]; [[RunningGag and]] by Shizuka Nekonome-sensei from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire''. Some seiyuu, such as Yukari Tamura (who voices Midori) have also picked up this habit.

It's also worth noting that despite being '''THE''' archetypical YamatoNadeshiko seiyuu, she's also often landed with LethalChef roles, where said YamatoNadeshiko isn't so complete due to her lack of quality in producing good, edible food. Examples include Cecile Croomy, Tytti Noorbuck, Sanae Furukawa and Rosemary.

In a strange twist of art imitating life, Kosuke Fujishima (creator of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'') became so impressed by Ms Inoue's portrayal of Belldandy that subsequent chapters of the manga use her characterization as the character's base personality, including quirks such as liking sunfish and touching fake food.

Despite her very common surname, she is not related to any other [[Creator/MakioInoue prominent]] [[KazuhikoInoue Inoue]] [[MarinaInoue seiyuus]].

!!Tropes associated with KikukoInoue:

* FollowTheLeader: Her "17 years old" shtick started when she hosted a radio show and her co-host was known for declaring herself "16 years old!", so she followed and evolved when said co-host is 17 years old. Later on, while her 17-years old cult is still growing, there's also similar movement such as 'Forever 23' (spearheaded by Creator/ChiakiTakahashi) and 'Forever 29' (spearheaded by YukoGoto).
* OlderThanTheyLook: While she doesn't look 17, she still looks a bit too young for a woman in late-forties.
* OldShame: Before Kasumi Tendo and Belldandy propelled her to fame and respectability, she was known for her role as a "naughty nurse" in the original video animation ''[[{{Hentai}} Ogenki Clinic.]]''.
* OneeSama: It's even her FanNickname amongst the business.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: Although justified she's the TropeCodifier of YamatoNadeshiko for voice actors.
* PlayingAgainstType: If you think she can only do sweet, pure, angelic women, wait until you hear [[GuiltyGear I-No]], [[MacrossFrontier Grace O'Connor]] or Lust from ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]''.
* RunningGag: "I'm 17 years old." Usually followed by someone else replying "Oi, oi!"
* SpiritualSuccessor: She's somewhat the SpiritualSuccessor to SumiShimamoto, who's the UrExample for YamatoNadeshiko voice actors. Also, SayakaOhara seems to be ''her'' SpiritualSuccessor. The casting crew for [[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi Umineko]] sure seems to think so.

For her American equivalent (who's more subtle about her age), see Creator/BridgetHoffman.
