* Creator/PeterCullen usually voices good guys who are "large and in charge" and you don't get any larger than [[TheTransformers Optimus Prime]] with the pseudo JohnWayne voice. He has, however voiced good guys who are more mentor than action guys. The perpetually worried father figure [[{{Voltron}} Coran]], as well as the dignified kingly voice of King Alfor's ghost from that same series. But the most shocking change was his voice for the fat, clumsy comic relief partner Eddie Spencer Jr. in {{Filmation}}'s 1986 ''[[Ghost Busters]]''. But, perhaps to make up for it, that show did have Mr. Cullen voice a memorable guest star, Jessica's ex soldier uncle, John Guardian, who in addition to having a [[AwesomeMcCoolName Badass Name]], kicked some serious ass in the episode "The Looking Glass Warrior".

** While Transformers Animated's version of [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Waspinator]], Wasp, would seem like his usual fare, you might be surprised. While Wasp is at least a little goofy, [[spoiler: when he becomes Waspinator, he is instead a snarling, hulking monster.]]

* The late Creator/MaryKayBergman's roles on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' were this, to the point that they had to credit her under the pseudonym of "Shannen Cassidy" to [[ContractualPurity retain her squeaky-clean reputation.]] Once ''South Park'' became a roaring success, this was dropped and the female characters became Bergman's most famous role, even appearing on her tombstone.

* Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz is usually known for playing goofy, loudmouthed characters who scream a lot such as Zim from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', Dagget from ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'', and Billy from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''. However he played a serious role in ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' in which he played Jimmy Osgood, a shy, nerdy boy who was often bullied. Eventually, he loses it and tries to kill his tormentors with a gun, but he is stopped before he can do anything. The gun still goes off, though, and nearly kills [[spoiler:Ritchie]].

More recently, she's given her voice to Doc Holiday from ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'', a caring and friendly scientist who's a surrogate mother to the protagonist.

* Creator/CreeSummer is famous for voicing young African-American women in most animated cartoons (''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''/''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'', etc.), but the first few characters she ever voiced were actually Caucasian women, such as Penny from ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' and Elmyra Duff from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' (her father is white). However, recently, Cree decided to go both ways and as a result, some of the later characters she actually voiced appear to be [[DarkSkinnedBlond dark-skinned women]] with white hair and blue eyes (''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'').
