* Creator/MegumiOgata is known for her deep and abrasive voice that leads her to mostly play young boys, such as [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]], and tough ActionGirl types, like [[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Uranus]] or even [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] before AtsukoTanaka took the role.

* Creator/ToshiyukiToyonaga, who voiced many {{Adorkable}} characters such as [[Literature/{{Durarara}} Mikado Ryuugamine]] and [[Manga/KimiToBoku Shun Matsuoka]], currently voices Mahiro Fuwa, the AxCrazy, JerkAss AntiHero of ''Manga/ZetsuenNoTempest''. The amount of dramatic yelling in a suddenly rough, husky voice is very shocking.

* Creator/MamoruMiyano normally plays Bishounen type characters with boyish voices, but in ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate'', he played Okabe Rintaro who is older than bishounen and is deep-voiced. As a result, he has Creator/JMichaelTatum as his English language correspondent while he normally has Creator/ToddHaberkorn and/or Creator/VicMignogna in other Creator/FUNimation dubs.

* While Creator/TomokazuSeki simply plays too many roles to be a true PigeonholedVoiceActor, he nonetheless usually finds himself playing either HotBlooded or {{Stoic}} {{Badass}}es like [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Domon Kasshu]], [[VideoGame/{{Gungrave}} Beyond the Grave]], [[Manga/LuckyStar Anime Tenchou]], [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Sousuke Sagara]], [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Gai Daigouji]], and...''[[Manga/{{Gravitation}} Shu]][[{{Uke}} ichi]]?''

* YuukiKaji has both played [[Anime/GuiltyCrown Shu]] and [[LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD Issei]] in the same season. One is a brooding, angsty guy who is forced to become king, and the other one is a lecherous hotblooded kid who wishes to become the ultimate pawn. You try listening one then go to another. It's pretty amazing that he has two protagonist roles which are polar opposites of each other.
