** Whenever there are [[CloneArmy 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.

** Whenever there are [[CloneArmy 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. The same applies to very similar kinds of gems, like Carnelian and Jasper (both Kimberly Brooks) or Sapphire and Padparadscha (bother Erica Luttrell). 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.unique.
** Steven and his father's voice actors also voice Onion and his father. Partially this was so they didn't have to cast a new actor for [[TheUnintelligible characters that only speak gibberish]], but it does emphasize how Onion and Steven [[{{Foil}} play off each other]].
** When Steven goes into Rose's Room, it creates a tiny floating whale voiced by Susan Egan. Egan would later turn out to be the voice of Rose herself.

* In the ''VideoGame/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]].

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' also [[JohnnyYongBosch does this]] with Emil Castagnier[[spoiler:/Ratatosk and Aster Laker. While this can be credited to Ratatosk taking on Aster's physical form (and Emil's identity) after killing him, we are [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jfi_dmAEYw shown via flashback]] that they shared a voice even beforehand.]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' movie ''Bender's Big Score'', both Philip Fry and Lars Fillmore are voiced by Creator/BillyWest. [[spoiler:They're actually the same person. Lars is an aged time-travel duplicate of Fry who was disfigured by injuries he sustained during the events of the movie.]] However, Lars's voice is heavily distorted, and Creator/BillyWest [[ManOfAThousandVoices voices many other characters in the show]], including every one of Fry's male relatives (past, present, and future). So even if the viewer does realize it's the same voice actor, many don't see the significance of it until TheReveal.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' uses the same voice actress for Tabatha, as well as [[spoiler:Martel Yggdrassil]]. While it's not overly withheld from the player that the former is an [[ArtificialHuman android]], it takes a bit longer to reveal [[spoiler:she is a failed attempt at creating a vessel for the latter]]. So while the two are not identical, they clearly share more than just a color scheme. [[spoiler:This culminates in Martel reincarnating as a Summon Spirit by manifesting through Tabatha in the ending.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In fact, ''all'' are significant in that they make the ending of the first song, "Alexander Hamilton", work: Lafayette/Mulligan and Jefferson/Madison both fought with him (in both senses of the phrase - alongside and against), Laurens and Phillip both died for him (Laurens defending emancipation, a passion both men shared, and Philip defending his father's honor), and Peggy and Maria Reynolds both loved him (Peggy as a sister, and Maria as a way to help her husband blackmail Hamilton, although it's unclear if Maria had actual feelings for Hamilton or not).

Compare IdenticalGrandson, IdenticalStranger.
IdenticalStranger. Contrast CastAsAMask, where two different actors are cast to conceal the fact that they're playing the same character.

* 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'', Creator/JenniferHale voices both Sam and her AlphaBitch [[EvilCounterpart counterpart]], Mandy. Of course, Jennifer found herself voicing [[TalkingToHimself nearly half the female characters on this series]], so it take with a grain salt, though the fact that the two members of Mandy's BetaBitch [[GirlPosse posse]] are voiced by Sam and Clover's [=VAs=] respectively provides notable evidence.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' sees both Ben Tennyson's son in the future, Kenny, and Spanner voiced by Creator/ScottMenville ([[TheOtherDarrin replacing]] Creator/TaraStrong in the former role). [[spoiler:This is because Kenny ''is'' Spanner]].
