* In ''Film/TimeBandits'', Creator/SeanConnery plays both Kevin's surrogate father figure Agamemnon as well as the fireman who rescues him in the end. Kevin reacts to the similarity. This helps raise a number of questions for the film's GainaxEnding.

* In ''{{Never7}}'', Haruka's VA is replaced with question marks. [[spoiler: This is to disguise the fact that she is the clone of another character, and is played by the same actress.]] * In ''{{Ever17}}'', Takeshi and the Kid have the same voice actor, though they are not voiced on their routes and can only be heard on the opposite route. [[spoiler:This is to conceal the fact that the "Takeshi" and "Kid" that we see are actually the same person, and not the real characters played as on their routes.]] Oddly enough, [[spoiler:this is also subverted, as the real Takeshi and the second Kid also have the same voice actor, but there is no real reason for all three characters having the same voice actor in-universe: just a coincidence.]] To top it off, [[spoiler:Blick Winkel]] is also voiced by the same actor in [[AudioAdaptation Drama CD]]. * In ''{{Persona 3}}'', the protagonist, Ryoji,and Pharos all share the same voice actor in both the Japanese and English dubs. This is because [[spoiler:Ryoji is Death, who had been sealed inside the protagonist's subconscious for the past ten years and had picked up some of his humanity, and because Pharos ''is'' Ryoji before he is entirely reformed as Death.]]

* In the ''KingdomHearts'' series, Sora is voiced Miyu Irino in the Japanese version and Haley Joel Osment in English, while his [[EmptyShell Nobody]] Roxas is voiced by Kouki Uchiyama/Jesse [=McCartney=]. When ''Birth By Sleep'' came out, new hero Ven looked like Roxas and shared his voice actor, while masked antagonist Vanitas had Sora's voice actor. [[spoiler:The game revealed that Vanitas looks like Sora under his mask, as he's Ven's EnemyWithout and his extraction damaged Ven's heart, forcing him to bond with Sora's to survive and the bond caused Vanitas to shapeshift into a dark version of Sora. As for Ven-Roxas, at the end of the game Ven's half-destroyed heart merges with Sora's, and years later according to WordOfGod, when Roxas was birthed from Sora he got the remnants of Ven's heart, which is why he looks like Ven]]. ** ''KingdomHearts'' is rather fond of this trope. Kairi and Xion, who resembles a black haired Kairi, also share the same actresses Hayden Panettiere and Alyson Stoner in the English versions and Risa Uchida in Japanese. [[spoiler:It's significant but not in the way it sounds: though it seems Xion is related to Kairi, she is really a Replica of ''Sora'', made from his memories, who takes Kairi's appearance due to her being Sora's strongest memory]]

** Pulled again in ''MetalGearSolid2''. When Raiden first meets Lt. J.G. Iroquois Plissken, the subtitles actually make sure to explicitly credit Plissken as being voiced by DavidHayter in English and AkioOhtsuka in Japanese, the same actors as protagonist Solid Snake. But making things confusing is that the Big Shell station Raiden and Plissken have infiltrated is said to be held hostage by Snake. [[spoiler: As it turns out, the "Solid Snake" that's been holding the Big Shell hostage is brother Solidus, looking and sounding absolutely nothing like the the real Snake, who unsurprisingly has been in disguise as Plissken the whole time.]]
