* Averted in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'': When Goku and Ginyu swap bodies, they speak in their new bodies' voices, but keep their old accents. Goku still thinks in his normal voice, however.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' averts this when Spider-man and Wolverine switch bodies. Listening to Creator/SteveBlum do the panicked and snarky Spider-man in his Wolverine's voice is hilarious.
** It happens again later: Imagine FredTatasciore doing it in his {{Hulk}} voice! Also, in both these episodes, DrakeBell (Peter/Spidey, and ''not'' considered the best VA he's had, though it may be colored by fan reaction to the DenserAndWackier series in general) gets to [[HeReallyCanAct show his range]] a bit.

* Larynx transplants have been possible since 1998, and, in at least one case, the recipient sounded like he did before his own larynx was crushed, rather than sounding like the donor. So voices are partly mental.
** The larynx actually has very little to do with how voices sound, but it's not much mental, either. The larynx is a bit like the mouthpiece of a brass instrument. All mouthpieces sound about the same alone, but the sound quality changes drastically depending on whether it's attached to a trumpet or tuba. In this case, the entire human head acts as the actual "instrument."

* Tony Tony Chopper from ''Manga/OnePiece'' can take the form of a giant reindeer-man, but has the same little kid voice, albeit slightly deeper. The 4Kids! dub averted this, but it's generally agreed that the voice used for his large form sounded ''horrible''.

* Played with in the ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'' drama ''The Curse of Davros''. Humans who have the minds of Daleks swapped into them are played by their original actors, but the Daleks-with-human-minds are played by the same actors, only given the ring-modulation Dalek voice treatment.

** ''Kingdom Hearts II'': Riku has taken on Ansem's form. He has Ansem's voice till Sora discovers who he is. Then he drops the charade and suddenly has David Gallagher's voice!

* ''TheTick vs. Science'' had a lot of fun with this, with human characters suddenly saddled with the vocalizations of a giant sentient tongue and so forth.

* Also averted in the FreakyFridayFlip episode of ''{{Pirates of Dark Water}}''. Probably for the sake of hearing the [[MixAndMatchCritters monkey-bird's]] voice do HulkSpeak.

** A fun story from one of the writers: the voice actresses for Raven and Starfire were originally ''supposed'' to switch roles, with [[EmotionlessGirl "Starfire" speaking in monotone]] and [[GenkiGirl "Raven" speaking cheerfully]]. It then turned out that both actresses were so good at mimicking the other character's voice that they could barely tell a switch had been made, leading the writers to simply drop the idea.
