* ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2'' holds it's own against the impressive original cast. Most of the cast is extremely well-known and turns in performances supporting this and even the two relative newbies (Creator/NatalieHoover as Sonia and Creator/JaniceKawaye as Peko) turn in impressive performances. Chiaki, Gundham, and Hajime seem to be particularly well liked. However, the performance that really stands out was Creator/BrycePapenbrook as Nagito. While Papenbrook is a rather [[LoveItOrHateIt divisive]] voice actor, Nagito is considered one of his best roles.

** Interestingly enough, now that they've been gone a while, people seem to be considering the 4Kids actors to be a strong cast in their own right, particularly Creator/DanGreen as Knuckles, Creator/LisaOrtiz as Amy Rose, Bella Hudson as Tails, and Creator/JasonGriffith as Sonic (2007 and beyond). As an overall group, they started out with several rough spots (Sonic sounded more high-pitched and nerdy), (Mike Polok admitted he was trying to do a Dean Bristo impression before he found his voice for the character), and it didn't help their introductions to the franchise were ''Anime/SonicX'' and ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' which weren't the most well written entries. But over time the cast audibly improved greatly. Griffith's work in ''VideoGame/[[SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]'' is considered one of the finest demonstrations of Sonic's character in the franchise.

* The dub quality in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'', is one of the games highlights, mainly because it shows the love given by Xseed in localizing it. Creator/SeanChiplock as the lead Rean Schwarzer manages to capture many important scenes very well such as [[spoiler:the revelation that Osbourne is still alive ''and'' is his father]], Creator/MelaLee fits the voice of hypercompetent maid Sharon Kreuger very well, Creator/CarrieKeranen succeeds in being a slacker-yet-badass school instructor, Creator/EdenRiegel greatly captures [[https://youtu.be/vnsbfcN7h3A?t=1h11m51s Duvalie's scream of frustration]], and the list goes on...

* It took a long time for the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series to find vocal talent that didn't piss off at least ''some'' contingent of the fandom's infamously BrokenBase, but the decision to bring on Creator/RogerCraigSmith as Sonic was a good one. While a bit deeper than expected, he nails Sonic's attitude perfectly. Perhaps an even better decision was to keep Creator/MikePollock, the one member of the 4Kids voice cast to be universally beloved, as the nefarious Dr. Eggman.
** The UnpleasableFanbase reared its ugly head though and complained enough that Smith often pokes fun at them. However, there were the ''least'' amount of complaints when Smith was brought on to voice Sonic, compared to when Jason Griffith was brought on or when Ryan Drummond was brought on. Outside of Sonic as a character, Kate Higgins is said to be the best Tails in the franchise's history, and same with Laura Bailey and Omochao; though Omochao is still TheScrappy of the franchise, he was tolerated in ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'' rather than outright hated.

** Speaking of ''Sonic Boom'', the [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom the TV series]] is an even bigger improvement on the ''Boom'' games. With the chance to record their lines together and work on several dozen episodes, the cast quickly polished their character voices to perfection with excellent comedic timing and a moment or two to show off some range. ''Creator/CindyRobinson'', in particular, who started out widely disliked as Amy sporting a Mini Mouse-esque tone found her own range with a lower, warmer style, many fans are considering her to be at least just as good as her previous actress. This was solidified in the season 2 episode "Give Bees A Chance", which she wrote starring Amy, where she displays a variety of emotions from bubbly to depressed, and pulled them off well.



* ''VideoGame/{{Elsword}}'' is one of those rare moments where a Korean MMORPG have select character voices that doesn't sound like they hired random people from the streets. Instead, they hired the voice actors that are actually from Creator/VizMedia's talents along with a great ADR director Creator/MichaelSorich. There is an actual option in game to switch languages from Korean to English, and the majority of the people don't actually mind playing with the English Voice Overs.

Added DiffLines:

* While it's not voice acting exactly as the game does not feature spoken dialogue, similarly to the ''Creator/WorkingDesigns'' example, the songs in ''VideoGame/RhapsodyAMusicalAdventure'' were all sung by professional singers, and while the songs themselves are delightfully cheesy, the tunes are [[EarWorm catchy]] and the voices fit their characters well. It's an impressive feat, as the game was released on the first UsefulNotes/PlayStation'' console which was notorious for its games having wooden, clunky voice work, let alone a game with twenty musical numbers.

* Speaking of French shows, ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' has a quality English dub containing an AllstarCast. The incomparable ''Creator/CristinaValenzuela'' is the star of the show, making Marinette ditzy and adorable in her civilian identity, and as Ladybug she's noticeably more confident and a LargeHam. ''Creator/BrycePapenbrook'' manages the opposite, giving Adrien a calm, somewhat stoic tone and an {{Adorkable}}, hammier side as Cat Noir, who's just earnest enough that his terrible puns come off as endearing rather than grating. ''Creator/MelaLee'' as Marinette's FairyCompanion Tikki is utterly {{Moe}} with her high-pitched voice and giggles that's in contrast to her usually bratty or cruel characters. ''Creator/KeithSilverstein'' channels pure Saturday morning cartoon villainy with Hawkmoth, and [[LargeHam seems to be enjoying every second]], and yet manages a reflective, even sad moment in the episode "Simon Says". ''Creator/CarrieKeranen'' is the perfect supportive girl friend any girl would want her age that still has a lot of sass. Due to being animated around an English demo, there's a lot less LipLock than usual, making for some cheecie, but rarely awkward dialogue. While the script is admittedly goofy, the changes were done with the creator's oversight, which only enhances the comic book inspiration. It's so widely watched by English-speaking fans it's assumed you're talking about the dub, having to specify the French cast when you aren't.
