* In the English dub of ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' GrantGeorge voices both King Krichevskoy, Laharl's father and predecessor as Overlord, and RecurringBoss Vyers (A.K.A Mid-Boss). [[spoiler:The implication (confirmed in an art book) is that Vyers ''is'' Krichevskoy brought BackFromTheDead by Lamington.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Whenever there are multiple instances of a Gem, they share a voice actor; all Pearls are voiced by Deedee Magno Hall, all Amethysts are voiced by Micheala Dietz, etc. This reaches truly impressive levels in Hit The Diamond, where Charlyne Yi voices SIX different Rubies (seven if you count the Ruby fusion) and still makes them sound vocally unique.

* In the film ''Film/{{Nadja}}'', the title character is {{Dracula}}'s daughter, being pursued in the present day by a descendant of Professor Van Helsing. Dracula himself, being dead, appears only in flashbacks, once as StockFootage of Creator/BelaLugosi, but otherwise as a dim faceless figure who is played by the same actor as plays Van Helsing.

* ''Theatre/{{NatashaPierreAndTheGreatCometOf1812}}'' has Prince Andrey and his cruel, decrepit father played by the same actor to emphasize that the two are much alike. Most characters in the show believe that Andrey's fiancee Natasha is ruining her life by running away with another man, but the casting implies that she's actually dodging a bullet.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', GLaDOS and Caroline are both voiced by Ellen [=McLain=]. This started out being just for convenience, since they had a "Cave's assistant" character who was originally male and named Greg, but decided they didn't want to hire another voice actor for so few lines. [[spoiler:But then it gave the developers the idea of having Caroline be the woman who became [=GLaDOS=] via BrainUploading.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/KuboAndTheTwoStrings'': If you notice the same actor voices [[spoiler:Kubo's mother and Monkey]], it's much less surprising that [[spoiler:they're the same person]]. To make this a ''bit'' less obvious, [[SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer the marketing downplayed former's presence]] and never made it explicit that [[Creator/CharlizeTheron the actor]] was even double cast. Their performance for each character is deliberately very different, so it's easy for an uninformed viewer to not notice.
* In the Dreamworks film ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', Val Kilmer plays both Moses and God. This was probably done to signify that God is speaking ''through'' Moses rather than ''to'' Moses, especially since God's voice also has a whispery female voice layered into it to emphasize that [[OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous God is a pure spirit beyond the concept of gender]]. It may also be a ShoutOut to ''Film/TheTenCommandments'' where Creator/CharltonHeston provided one of the many male voices layered together to represent God.
