* The PC version of ''VideoGame/DreamWeb'' credits the actors who voiced the dialouge, but never states who voiced which character. The only guess is that Ryan is voiced by Martin Sherman, as he is top billed and his voice is reminiscence to Thomas, a character he voiced many years later.

* All Creator/{{Nintendo}} games[[note]]with the exceptions of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'', ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' (Japanese version only), ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault'', ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'', ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' and a few others[[/note]], if they bother to credit voices at all[[note]]A general rule of thumb is that if the voice clips used are [[StockFootage reused from previous games]] or a voice actor is credited for another role (Kazumi Totaka being both Yoshi and a music composer, for example), then those voice actor(s) will go uncredited[[/note]]. Some characters whose voice was actually a StockSoundEffect were miscredited as another voice actor listed in the credits, most infamously Issac Marshall as [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] and Creator/CharlesMartinet as Franchise/DonkeyKong in the UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} era. However, this isn't otherwise much of a problem, since most of the voice actors in question are easy to contact, but the voice cast of, say, ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' was anyone's guess up until recently, and for ''[[VideoGame/PanelDePon Tetris Attack]]'' it's completely unknown who did who (although it's said that Isaac Marshall did Kamek). It's also a problem for ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'', and some ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' characters who [[NonDubbedGrunts keep their original Japanese]] VoiceGrunting, thanks to the language barrier[[note]]the voice actresses for the announcer and Toad in the first three ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' games had their credits on numerous websites switched around, Demise from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' was originally thought to be an uncredited Creator/TakashiNagasako thanks to a RedHerring, and Creator/MakikoOhmoto was originally thought to voice Kirby and [[spoiler:Queen Sectonia]] AND King Dedede AND Meta Knight AND Magolor AND Taranza AND the People of the Sky in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand'' and ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'', instead of just Kirby and [[spoiler:Queen Sectonia]], since she was the only voice actor listed in the credits, while the actual voice actors of the other five were credited under different roles[[/note]].
** ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' since ''Brawl'', which is strange since the first two entries avoided this. Likely a union issue - the voice actors for the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' characters in ''Brawl'' and the ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' characters in ''Smash 4'' are union members, most of the other actors are either American non-union, Japanese or (regarding the ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' characters) British.[[note]]The Japanese version of ''Smash 4'', while still having a "block of names" in the credits, matches the voice actors to their roles in the Sound Test, unlike the international versions.[[/note]]

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' features the third version of this trope; the (non-union) dub was mostly done by non-union actors (or [[TakeAThirdOption ficore]]), who are credited as their character, but a few characters were voiced by union actors, who went uncredited. ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' does the same thing.



** ''Soulcalibur II'' had a list for the Japanese voice cast during the credits, but zilch for the English voice cast. The only reason the English [=VAs=] in ''II'' are known is because the character profiles allow the player to toggle on and off the name of the VA while listening to each individual character's quotes.

* Back in the day, most anime released by CentralParkMedia, AnimEigo, and MediaBlasters had proper credits.
* Any official StudioGhibli film dub, helped by the fact that they cast CelebrityVoiceActors. Many still have a generic list of additional voices.

** A much more notorious case of fan confusion involves the original voice actor of Naoto Shirogane from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. No one has ever stepped up to confirm who provided Naoto's voice in the game, and to this day her identity remains a mystery. While there have been many loose guesses based on vocal similarities, no one has ever truly found out the actor's identity. Numerous people from Atlus, as well as voice actor Creator/ErinFitzgerald have implied that the actor in question wishes to remain anonymous, likely due to union issues, as the Persona games are non-union. Furthermore, Valerie Arem, the voice and casting director and Naoto's voice actor in the spin-off games such as Ultimax and Persona Q, has stated that "no one has guessed even close to who Naoto's VA really is", which further leaves the identity in mystery.

* Italian dubs of Cartoon Network shows usually list only a handful of main characters, but some shows need some extra tidbits:
** ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': Only Finn, Jake and Princess Bubblegum are credited. Starting from Season 5, Ice King is credited too.
** ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': Credits only Gumball, Darwin, Anais, Nicole and Richard. Halfway through Season 3 the former two get [[TheOtherDarrin new voices]], but the credits aren't updated at all.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}'': For the first half of season 1 the only voice actors credited are the ones who do Clarence, Jeff, Sumo, Mary and Belson (and the last one is wrong: Belson is voiced by Davide Lepore, but the credits instead mention Emiliano Reggente, Chad's voice actor). Subverted starting from the second half of the season, where there is a gigantic list crediting the voices for every character in the show, even one-shot characters.
** ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'' takes it to the extreme and is completely missing Italian dub credits.

* The Italian dub of ''Anime/YoKaiWatch'' credits only four voice actors missing who is who. A good ear can get that the four voices are Nathan, Whisper, Jibanyan and Manjimutt, but it's still missing everyone else.

* A majority of foreign content dubbed into Indian languages such as Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and the rest, the voice actors and it's dubbing staff all go uncredited. But recently, since the internet has been booming with places dedicated to find the voice actors, it has been getting somewhat easier since the early 2010s. It has also gotten better with the idea of those dedicated to finding the voices online through social media. Although it does not change the fact that the voice actors still go uncredited throughout 90% of the time. Films of foreign films released on DVD or Blu-Ray with dubbing information is not impossible, as there are some releases that have it. But that is after the original ending credits and it's quite rare.
