* In the English dub of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'', Lacus Clyne is voiced by two different actresses when speaking normally (ChantalStrand) and when singing (Jillian Michaels) - it's pretty obvious in SEED, but much less so in Destiny. In original Japanese, Creator/RieTanaka performs both, though.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Weiss Schnee is voiced by Kara Eberle, but her singing is done by Casey Lee Williams, who provides most of the show's soundtrack.



* Notably averted in ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoRundeX6O0 Yep, that's really Batman singing there]]. The writers discovered that Kevin Conroy was trained as a singer, and figured that it was just too funny to pass up.

** While Pinkie Pie's singing voice is normally provided by Shannon Chan-Kent, her speaking voice Andrea Libman still does her own singing as Fluttershy, and even Pinkie on occasion. According to Libman, this is because Pinkie's speaking voice can be very straining for her; one can only imagine doing the singing voice would be even harder on her vocal chords. Pinkie Pie's Smile Song notably has Andrea Libman providing backing vocals, making it a rare case where both singing and voice actors for Pinkie Pie are heard together.

* The revival of ''Theatre/SpringAwakening'', because of its casting Deaf and hard-of-hearing actors in some roles, has two actors playing said roles, one signing in American Sign Language and one speaking/singing (cast list for the Broadway iteration):
** Sandra Mae Frank (sign) and Katie Boeck (voice) - Wendla
** Daniel Durant (sign) and Alex Boniello (voice) - Moritz
** Miles Barbee (sign) and Sean Grandillo (voice) - Otto
** Joshua Castille (sign) and Daniel David Stewart (voice) - Ernst
** Treshelle Edmond (sign) and Kathryn Gallagher (voice) - Martha
** Amelia Hensley (sign) and Lauren Luiz (voice) - Thea
** The roles of the Adult Women and Adult Men are unique: Camryn Manheim and Patrick Page speak and sign their lines, but also dub for Marlee Matlin and Russell Harvard whenever the latter two are onstage.

Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', the entirety of the cast both sing and speak without the need for a dubber. Helps that all of the soloists have appeared on Broadway before (yes, even Kristen Bell).

* ''Film/GoldDiggersOf1933'' had Joan Blondell's singing dubbed over by Marian Anderson in "Remember My Forgotten Man." Blondell used her own singing voice in ''Dames''. It was not pretty.

* Creator/AvaGardner's singing was dubbed by Eileen Wilson in ''The Hucksters'' (1947), ''Theatre/OneTouchOfVenus'' (1948) and ''The Bribe'' (1949). She was determined to put her vocal training to the test as Julie in the 1951 remake of ''Theatre/ShowBoat''; Annette Warren's singing voice was nevertheless dubbed over hers, but Gardner did her own singing on the soundtrack album and in other movies of the 1950s.

* The film adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/{{Coraline}}'' sees the Other Father (voiced by John Hodgman) sing a [[{{Earworm}} catchy little ditty]] about Coraline, in the voice of John Linnell of Music/TheyMightBeGiants.
** This was a ShoutOut to the fact that, originally, the film was going to be a musical with songs written by They Might Be Giants. As awesome as that could have been, it apparently [[MoodWhiplash ruined the creepy tone of the movie]], so the idea was scrapped. "The Other Father Song" is the only remnant of the musical idea.
* ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp II Scamp's Adventure'' has three examples of this: Buster's speaking voice is Chazz Palminteri while his singing voice is Jess Harnell, Scamp's speaking voice is Scott Wolf and his singing voice is Roger Bart, and Angel's speaking voice is Alyssa Milano and her singing voice is Susan Egan. Funnily enough, Alyssa did have a brief stint as a pop star in Japan when she was a teenager.
* In the animated ''WesternAnimation/TheKingAndI'', as like its live-action counterpart, Anna had a separate voice actor as her singing voice. Miranda Richardson spoke, Christiane Noll sang. The Prince also has Allen D. Hong as the speaking voice, and David Burnham as the singing. Tuptim was voiced by Armi Arabe, and sung by Tracy Venner.
* In ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'', the villain [=McLeach=] is voiced by Creator/GeorgeCScott, but during the part where he sings his twisted version of "Home on the Range" his singing is done by Creator/FrankWelker.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', Jessie is voiced by Joan Cusack, but her yodeling was by Creator/MaryKayBergman. Wheezy (voiced by Creator/{{Pixar Regular|s}} Joe Ranft) sings a reprise of the original film's "You've Got a Friend in Me" at the end, sung by Robert Goulet. The series has many first-person songs such as "When She Loved Me", "You've Got a Friend in Me", "Strange Things" and "I Will Go Sailing No More", but it's more of "music to fit the situation" instead of "character singing." Jessie's voice acting arrangement is averted in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'': Mary Kay Bergman tragically died in 1999, so Joan Cusack did her own yodeling for the third movie.
* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'', where Billy Crystal and John Goodman sing in character as Mike and Sulley over the end credits.
* All over the place in ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot''; Kayley is voiced by [[Series/{{Glee}} Teri Schuester]] (speaking) and Andrea Corr (singing); Garrett is voiced by [[Film/ThePrincessBride Westley]] (speaking) and Bryan White (singing); Kayley's mother is voiced by Jane Seymour (speaking) and CelineDion (singing); King Arthur is voiced by [[Creator/PierceBrosnan James Bond]] (speaking) and [[Music/{{Journey}} Steve Perry]] (singing). (And I think we already know that Creator/PierceBrosnan [[Film/MammaMia should never sing]].)
* In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' movie ''WesternAnimation/DaffyDucksQuackbusters'', Daffy's singing voice is provided by Mel Torme. Lampshaded though, in that Daffy swallows a bottle of mouthwash designed to ''give him Mel Torme's voice''.
** This may have been the inspiration for the ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'' episode "Talent Show A-Go-Go", in which Dodgers uses some AppliedPhlebotinum to swap voices with Tom Jones. In addition to Jones voicing Dodgers, we also get Joe Alaskey voicing Tom Jones trying to sing while "sounding like Daffy Duck".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'':
** Averted. The actors all sing their own parts, despite some of them having little musical experience.
** In the Mexican Spanish dub, Jorge is voiced by Carlos del Campo while his singing voice is provided by Ulises Maynardo Zavala.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}'': ''The Movie'', Tara is voiced by Patti Morse, but her singing voice is done by Melisa Kary when she sings "Take Me Away" near the end.
* In ''WesternAnimation/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime'' it is obviously not Creator/JenniferHale and Creator/TressMacNeille doing the singing voices of Cinderella and Anastasia.

Creator/ClaireCorlett, who only did Sweetie's speaking voice at the time, turns in a hilariously awful, pony-friendly rendition of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall".

In addition, Scott Innes did his own singing for several Scooby-related songs in the early 2000s as Scooby and Shaggy.
