* Many of the entries in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series don't include English voice credits. This has resulted in permanent fan confusion over who did the much-criticized voice work for Fuuka Yamagishi in the initial dubbing of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', which unsurprisingly nobody seems to want to claim.

Added DiffLines:

* The Italian dub of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' changed format multiple times for the credits. Season 1 listed only the Mane 6 plus Celestia, Spike, and Pinkie Pie's singing voice. In Season 2 it was changed with a ginormic list of almost every character appearing during the season (and until 2015 it was the only confirmation that [[MissingEpisode the Flim Flam Brothers episode was indeed dubbed since it's skipped in TV airings]]), plus a general list of the [[NonSingingVoice singing voices]] missing the "who voices who" part. Season 3 did a similar thing, but listing only main and important characters (Mane 6, Spike, Princesses, Shining Armor, Discord, Big Mac, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Granny Smith - before you ask no, Scootaloo's voice was never credited on screen). Season 4 did something similar to Season 2, but only covered the first seven episodes (it can be explained because starting from Season 4 they stopped waiting for the complete season airing and instead they split each season in 3 waves that air within the current year), Season 5 came back to the Season 3 format, and Season 6 it's where they're finally making individual credits for each episode.

* VideoGame/SenNoKiseki Has Alisa Reinford and Crow Armbrust whose voice actors are not credited. It somehow becomes a rather frequently-asked question in Main/GAMEFAQS in Alisa's case with some people trying to speculate who her voice actress is. The rest are credited though.

* * Creator/{{Valve}} has a policy to only list the names of the people who were involved in the production of their games, without naming specific roles. It becomes less "Who voiced who?" and more "Who were even doing voice acting?" However, ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' are exceptions, and separate the voice cast list, even matching the voice actors to their roles!

* Rather bizarrely, the Italian dub of ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'', and possibly the actual series (I haven't watched the Italian dub of the series so I can't say for sure), actually translates the movie's credits into English (unlike the English dub of the movie, which left them untranslated), but only lists the voice actor credits for the ''English'' dub, despite the fact that the English dub isn't even ''included'' on the Italian DVD.

Common in {{anime}} and WesternAnimation, and related to HeyItsThatGuy and HeyItsThatVoice. This is the former standard in Western Animation in the U.S. (other countries have different standards for this) where voice actors are lumped into a simple list under the heading "Voice Talent." This makes viewers who recognize an actor's name have to [[TheOtherWiki do a search]] to determine which character they were, which can be problematic especially if they used an alias for this production (or if [[ManOfAThousandVoices someone has a very large vocal range]]).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' credits the main five characters with specific voice actors and everyone else under "Other Voices". This list is only changed once per ''season'', meaning single episode guest stars are credited in over 30 episodes they don't appear in, and doesn't take into account how some of the main voice actors also play secondary characters. Many voice actors were miscredited on sites like wikia for ''years'' until [[WordOfGod the voice director corrected them]].
