* Most of the Velma and Daphne voice actors from ''ScoobyDoo'', including Nicole Jaffe (Velma #1), Stefanianna Christopherson (Daphne #1), Heather North (Daphne #2), Pat Stevens (Velma #2), and Marla Frumpkin (Velma #3). Jaffe, North, and Stevens had some scattered live action credits, but not much of note. Completely averted with Creator/GreyDeLisle (Daphne #4), Creator/MaryKayBergman (Daphne #3) and Creator/BJWard (Velma #4). Mindy Cohn (Velma #5) is a mixed example, with Velma being her only major voice role, but being just as recognized for her live action role as Natalie in ''Series/TheFactsOfLife''. Kate Micucci (Velma #6) is likewise, a well-known part of the comedy duo ''Garfunkel and Oates'', and a successful on-camera actress, but Velma is her only big claim to fame in voice acting. Most of her other voice work consists primarily of supporting roles on other shows.

** Yeardley Smith (Lisa) has this the worst. She has no other voice credits and no other claim to fame. She does occasionally work as an on-camera actress and has been in several popular movies (such as ''Film/TheLegendOfBillieJean'', ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets'', and ''Film/CitySlickers''), but they've always been minor roles and never the lead.

Her only other claim to fame. major leading role came with 1993's ''WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory'', which was a box office disaster. She does occasionally work as an on-camera actress and has been in several popular movies (such as ''Film/TheLegendOfBillieJean'', ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets'', and ''Film/CitySlickers''), ''Film/CitySlickers'') and had a supporting role in the now-forgotten cult sitcom ''Series/HermansHead'', but they've always been minor roles and never the lead.

** Linda Larkin, the speaking voice of Jasmine in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' has no other major credits. Her ''singing'' voice however, Lea Salonga, has had much more success as a singer for other Disney characters, as well as a career on Broadway, and is one of the most successful Filipino singers of all time.

** Jodi Benson comes the closest to averting this as a strictly voice actress, since she's had some decent success doing voices for several cartoons, but she will always be known as the voice of Ariel in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. Her other major credits include ''{{Barbie}}'' in the ''Franchise/ToyStory'' films and the title role in Creator/DonBluth's ''WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina}}'' (another princess role).

* "Pipeline" by '''The Chantays'''. This surf rock classic won them the #4 spot on the ''Billboard'' Hot 100 and an appearance on ''[[Music/LawrenceWelk The Lawrence Welk Show]]'' (of all shows!), but none of their follow-ups charted.

* Roger Maris, forever known as the man who hit 61* , isn't even in the Hall of Fame because other than his MVP years of 1960 and '61 (the year which he hit 61* ), he was an above-average but hardly spectacular baseball player.

** Jack Morris's 10-inning shutout for the Twins in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series completely overshadowed the rest of his excellent career; this one game was so epic that hardly anyone remembers that Morris was also the ace of ''the following year's champion'', the Toronto Blue Jays. Oh yeah, and he was also the ace of the Detroit Tigers earlier in his career.

** Same with Tiffany Vollmer, who voiced Bulma, and has no other major voice roles. Her only other roles ''period'' include a two-episode bit character in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' and additional voices in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''. She has since moved away, and Bulma is now voiced by Creator/MonicaRial.

* Since video games are rarely recorded in Seattle, the original cast of the ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'' series never really did much afterwards (except [[VideoGame/{{Halo}} Jen Taylor]], [[VideoGame/StarFox Mark Lund, and Dex Manley]]).
