* While averted in the Japanese versions of the ''ArTonelico'' series, the English versions fall squarely into this - because they use the same song, not even dubbed or covered.

* While averted in the Japanese versions A constant of the ''ArTonelico'' series, series. Every singer in the series will have both a voice actress and a singing voice, with Music/AkikoShikata and Haruka Shimotsuki usually providing for the main heroines even though all of them have different voice actors. It gets even more obvious in the English versions fall squarely into this - because they dubs, that just use the same song, not even dubbed or covered.japanese songs with no change.

* 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.

* All over the place in ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot''; also a major case of HeyItsThatVoice: 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 [[PierceBrosnan James Bond]] (speaking) and [[Music/{{Journey}} Steve Perry]] (singing). (And I think we already know that PierceBrosnan [[Film/MammaMia should never sing]].)

** Creator/MatthewBroderick can sing, but due to being more of a Lyric Baritone than a tenor, Joseph Williams replaces Simba for singing in ''Disney/TheLionKing'' (and Cam Clarke afterwards). Young Simba is also replaced (Jason Weaver instead of Jonathan Taylor Thomas- and Evan Saucedo for the extra song in the 2003 DVD release), and Jeremy Irons sings some of Scar's lyrics, but partway through, the harsher lyrics were replaced by that of Creator/JimCummings.
*** Apparently because Irons blew his voice out doing the [[ItMakesSenseInContext "YOU WON'T GET A SNIFF WITHOUT ME!"]] line in ''[[VillainSong Be Prepared]]'', [[JustifiedTrope resulting in]] Cummings subbing for him.

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' had the three hedgehog protagonists (yes, even the girl) voiced by the same voice actor, [[FamilyMatters Jaleel White]]. However, when it came to the OnceAnEpisode singing segment, they were voiced by three separate Voice Actors: Sam Vincent for Sonic, Tyley Ross for Manic and Louise Vallance for Sonia. Sonic's and Sonia's were close enough matches, but Manic's singing voice sounded absolutely nothing like his normal one.

* Subverted in ''HidamariSketch'' where the characters (and voice actresses) visit a karaoke parlor and sing nothing like they have for the openings/[[ImageSong imagesongs]], but rather sing more like how their characters would.
* The Italian dubs of ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' and ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'' used this a lot. The second one creepily, having four little girls singing with the same, adult voice.

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

** Averted in the English dub, where Christine Auten did both the speaking and the singing voices for Priss. However, Sinda Nichols did ''not'' do her own singing for the original OVA, where Priss's songs were covered by various artists.

Jennifer Cihi sings [[DubNameChange Serena's,]] songwriter Shandi Sinnamon does Amy's, Sandy Howell does Raye's vocals, and Patricia Tollett does Lita's.

One of Howell's songs was also used in the actual show when Raye sings. Katie Griffin (her speaking voice) is also a professional singer and wanted to do her own singing, but the songs were all recorded out of Los Angeles, while the voice acting was done in Toronto.
** The new Viz Media dub keeps all the songs in Japanese, except in cases where the characters are actually shown singing on-screen. This despite Viz mentioning that they had gone out of their way to cast actors that could sing; only CristinaVee (Rei) and CheramiLeigh (Minako) actually get the opportunity to do it.



** Michelle also sang ''Your Hiroshi'' in the ''[[Anime/PrettySammy Magical Girl Pretty Sammy]]'' [=OVAs=] as Chihiro Kawaii instead of either of her speaking voice actors Ellen Gerstell or Rebecca Forstadt (who ironically were both singers and did some singing for the franchise).

* Zac Efron's singing lines in ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' are all sung by Drew Seeley, with Efron lip-synching. Apparently, it's pretty well done, but you can tell if you know it's there. This is because the vocal range of Troy was written for a tenor, and Zac, being a baritone, couldn't sing that high. The two sequels eventually changed Troy's vocal range to fit Zac's range better.
** His natural singing voice can be heard in the first movie when Troy shows up at Gabriella's bedroom door.

** In another odd case, Twilight Sparkle's speaking voice actress Creator/TaraStrong is more than capable of singing herself (heck, she's even been the singing double to ''other'' actresses before!), but her voice is recorded separately from other actors in the show; she's the only Hollywood-based actor while all the others record in Canada. One assumes that since all the songs are recorded as ensemble they prefer all the singers are there, not to mention a Canadian law stating anyone working on a show originating in Canada MUST be a Canadian citizen (a law that resulted in almost the ENTIRE cast of ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' being replaced for the reboot, ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinChronicles''). Why she doesn't go to the recording studio in Canada, though, is a mystery, as Strong actually has dual citizenship.

* Played with in ''Film/LoveActually'', it ''is'' in fact Olivia Olson singing "All I Want For Christmas Is You", but her singing was toned down in post production because some people wouldn't believe [[RealityIsUnrealistic it was actually a child singing.]]
