** Henson himself also deserves props for the scene where Kermit gives himself a pep talk under the stars in ''Film/TheMuppetMovie.''

** Regardless of how you feel about ''Operation Overdrive'', the scene where Mack finds out he's really [[spoiler: a robot]] is well-acted. You can just hear the grief Mack and his father feel after learning and admitting the truth, respectively. Also from the same series, Ronny's sadness after [[spoiler: Mack supposedly dies]] is pretty jerking as well, even if it only lasts for a few lines.
** ''Power Rangers Time Force'' is an absolute gold mine for acting moments. Jen's reaction to [[spoiler: seeing Wes for the first time]] is one of only many.

** As of [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts02BirthBySleepAFragmentaryPassage 0.2]], the fandom is largely in agreement that Dohring has ''really'' upped his game in the years since [=BbS=].

* [[SmallReferencePools Most viewers know]] Creator/RachaelLillis as [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Jessie and Misty of Pokemon]]; yet since neither character has much nuance beyond {{Tsundere}} FieryRedhead and IneffectualSympatheticVillain FieryRedhead, there wasn't much potential for her to showcase her abilities there.Her voice-work for PluckyGirl [[Manga/RevolutionaryGirlUtena Utena]] likewise offered little opportunity for much serious acting... until [[WhamEpisode the episodes]] leading up to the GrandFinale. ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome And Ms. Lillis kills it]].'' [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming D'awws]] and [[TearJerker sniffles]] aplenty.

** Additionally, Lelouch Lamperouge in ''Anime/CodeGeass''. He pulls off insanely dramatic laughs, as well as absolutely heartbreaking and magnificently awesome line. To the point that quite a few people may prefer him over Jun Fukuyama.

** And then there's ''Film/{{Bernie}}''. Take every trait you'd associate with a "typical" Jack Black character and create a character who's the complete opposite. Black nailed it.* John Ritter and Dwight Yoakam in ''SlingBlade''.

* Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz has always played [[WestenrAnimation/InvaderZim comedic]] [[WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers roles]]. In ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', while not being as [[LargeHam large of a ham]] as he is notorious for, his character Raz is still pretty lighthearted. And then you see scenes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-Q1tNxWGG4 like]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WumAlZ2T-uM#t=265s this]] and it hits you that maybe it's just the littlest bit serious. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny The littlest bit.]] And he can still pull that off.

He also played against type in the Static Shock episode "Jimmy", and it's one of the few times he's shown to have been subtle in a voice role.

** [=Joel McHale=] in ''Series/{{Community}}''. Jeff seems like the same "character" plays on ''TheSoup''. Then you see something like "Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking", and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9Pkzl1BzYQ the look on Jeff's face during the following line]]. For context, [[spoiler:Pierce promised Jeff would get to meet his estranged dad, whom he has issues with. Jeff said that if it turns out to be a MindScrew by Pierce, that he will beat Pierce. Jeff is currently looking at a limo, and has answered from a phone call from a man claiming to be his father and in the limo. It's obviously Pierce, and Jeff has just realized that and is right in the middle of switching between "hopeful" and "murderous rage".]]

* Nobody said the man couldn't act, but Lin-Manuel Miranda's performance during the largely tragic middle of the second act of ''{{Theatre/Hamilton}}'' comes way out of left field. Hamilton's bravado comes crashing down when [[spoiler: his son dies]], and his panic at the beginning of "Stay Alive (Reprise)" and resignation during "It's Quiet Uptown" show that Miranda can bring real gravitas to the character.

* Broadway actress Lesli Margherita is mostly famous for her [[CloudCuckoolander wacky backstage vlogs]] and for originating Mrs. Wormwood in the Broadway cast of ''Theatre/{{Matilda}}''. Got that image in your head? Here she is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40rDjGK9Slo singing "God Help the Outcasts"]] as [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Esmeralda]]. There's a reason she has an (unrelated) Olivier.
** A subtler example is in one of the vlogs, where she has a [[TalkingToHimself conversation with Wormwood]]. She (herself) calls Wormwood a bad parent, to which Wormwood replies, "I'm not a bad ''parent'', I have a bad ''daughter."'' A line that shows she clearly knows Wormwood inside and out.

** Similarly, his discussing a traumatic high school experience in his [[Music/TaylorSwift "Fifteen"]] review. He later revealed [[spoiler:he wasn't really acting as much as he thought]], but as a turning point for Todd's character in-universe, it's handled masterfully.
