* Music/WeirdAlYankovic usually plays characters as wacky as his on-stage and music video persona. However, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanVsRobin'' had him as the Dollmaker, a serious and creepy serial killer, who is implied to retain the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' incarnation's habit of removing faces and ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' had him as '''ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}'''.

* 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 Creator/JohnWayne voice. He has, however voiced good guys who are more elder 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 role so far is his voice for Jake Kong Jr's overweight, clumsy, dorky, comic relief partner Eddie Spencer Jr. in ''[[FilmationsGhostbusters Filmation's 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".

** [=McKillip=]'s ultimate playing against type moment is her role in [[spoiler: ''WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}}'', in which she plays the sociopathic Princess Harumi, the BigBad of Season 8 and one of Ninjago's darkest villains ever. The role actually makes ''perfect'' sense for her, because the persona that Harumi pretends to be for most of the season is actually very similar to Princess Cadence's personality, making her an excellent RedHerring. Her ''true'' personality is closer to Cadence's imposter Chrysalis, but [[=McKillip=]] is able to pull a fast one by exploiting this trope to deceive the audience.]]

* In terms of cartoon creators, Doug Langdale is known for making series that are very outlandish in plot and characters, such as the outer space lunacy of ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' or medieval fantasy hijinks of ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian''. His longest running series, however, is the ''WesternAnimation/TheWeekenders'': a very grounded slice-of-life comedy about four friends hanging out on the weekends.
