* The Latin American dub for ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' has ''several'' cases of Playing Against Type. Seriously, Ichigo is voiced by [[Anime/InuYasha Kohaku]]? Kenpachi is [[Film/HarryPotter Dumbledore]]? Renji, by [[Manga/TriGun Vash The Stampede]]? Mayuri, by Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir? Chizuru, by [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Kodachi Kuno]]? Byakuya, by [[Manga/OnePiece Roronoa Zoro]]? Yumichika, by ''[[Anime/GhostSweeperMikami Tadao Yokoshima]]''?! And the list goes on, and on, and on...
** Imagine Mayuri [[Series/{{Baywatch}} running down the beach in a red bathing suit]] or [[Creator/JackieChan knowing his Kung Fu]] too. Yeah, Juan Alfonso Carralero is the usual Mexican dub voice for David Hasselhoff ''and'' Creator/JackieChan. How's that?!
** No, Zoro is voiced by Gabriel Basurto and Bykuya is actually Christian Strempler. And Aloof Older Brother's aren't new to Basurto, his most famous role was Sesshoumaru from ''Anime/InuYasha''. ZORO is the role where he plays against type. And he ''nailed'' the role -- but sadly the ''Manga/OnePiece'' dub is VERY hated among Latin American fans for being based on the 4kids version of the show. Which is sad considering that, performance wise, it's actually pretty good.

** Even more so! Creator/RicardoMendoza is an expert in playing TheLancer or the NumberTwo (either HotBlooded or DeadpanSnarker subtypes). His role in ''{{Manga/Bleach}}''? SOUSUKE MOTHERFUCKING AIZEN. It makes TheReveal so very ''weird'' to watch - specially because some fans were betting on him playing Renji instead.

* Laura Torres, from Mexico, is known for [[CrossdressingVoices voicing]] innocent and naive children like [[Manga/DragonBall Son Goku]] ([[Anime/DragonBallZ and his two kids]]), [[{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}} Tommy Pickles]], and [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Ralph]] [[TheDitz Wiggum]]. Then she voiced the all but innocent [[Anime/CrayonShinChan Shin-chan]] (Vitello/Phuuz version)... And it's HILARIOUS!
** And she also voiced {{WesternAnimation/Daria}} and [[Anime/YuGiOh Mai Valentine]]. WOW.

* Mexican bass-baritone Creator/GerardoReyero usually plays TheStoic ([[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} Cyclops]]), the TeamDad ([[{{Manga/Bleach}} Ukitake]]), or the BigBad ([[Anime/DragonBallZ Freezer]]). And then he plays [[{{Manga/Naruto}} Might Guy]].

* In Hungary, Janka Solecki voices villainous women such as [[TotalDramaIsland Josee]], [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Lust]], and [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Azula]]. However, one of her roles where she didn't portray a villain, was [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Applejack]].
** This is reversed in Poland, where Monika Pikula voices nice ladies, such as [[TotalDramaIsland Anne Maria]], [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Sam Manson]], and [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Sandy Cheeks]]. However, she voiced Azula, who wasn't nice.

* French voice actress Sauvane Delanoë is typically heard on the BrattyHalfPint ([[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail Fievel]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Skippy Squirrel]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}} Ben Tennyson]]) or the PluckyGirl ([[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime Cera]], [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerPuffGirls Blossom]]). So knowing she's part of the cast of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' which got its share of both, you would be forgiven to expect her to get one of these parts... instead of AxCrazy [[TheBaroness Baroness]] Adiane... and clearly having a hell of a time with all the profanities and funny faces.
