* 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.

* 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.

* ''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.

While Papenbrook is a rather [[LoveItOrHateIt divisive]] voice actor, Nagito is considered one of his best roles.

* The English dub for ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' really ''really'' splurged, just like in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''. While both games were handheld (which are typically given much ''less'' standards to voice acting than other video games), looking at the voice credits, you can really see that they spared no expense. While they do have a few actors playing multiple characters, almost all of them manage to make their characters sound ''very'' different from each other. The one exception is Creator/TaraPlatt, who voices Miriel and Flavia (and it's pretty obvious that they're the same person, given how often you're likely to hear Miriel and Flavia's VoiceGrunting and voice clips). The fact that the game has so ''little'' voice acting compared to other titles (like ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' and the PSP ''Franchise/StarOcean'' remakes) makes the dub even ''more'' impressive. Of the voices in the game, Creator/LauraBailey's SelfDemonstrating/{{Lucina}} seems to be one of the most lauded, thanks to her voice acting embodying the character's strength, beauty, determination and cuteness all at the same time.
* After the controversial localization and voice acting for ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the localization team (8-4) and production studio (Cup of Tea Productions) that were used for ''Awakening'' were bought back for ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', and their might combined with their actors ''shows'', amplified by the fact that this game is fully voice acted throughout instead of reserving it for cutscenes. The leads (Creator/KyleMcCarly as Alm, and Creator/EricaLindbeck as Celica) and the supporting cast (Creator/MaxMittelman as Gray, Creator/RobbieDaymond as Tobin, Creator/CheramiLeigh as Mae, Creator/KeithSilverstein as Saber, and Chris Hackney as Boey) are beautifully executed and natural-sounding, and Creator/IanSinclair playing the new villain Berkut's epic breakdown scene during Act 4 is another highlight.

* ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' also has an English voice cast that's considered to be superior to the Japanese original. In particular, Creator/KarenStrassman as Phi (who has a perfect amount of sarcastic tone for the Main/DeadpanSnarker Phi is) and Creator/CindyRobinson as Zero (who switches between at least FIVE different voices and is really having fun with the part) are considered better. Special mention should also go to Creator/ErinFitzgerald as Quark- even people who normally dislike her work like her perfomance.

*** As of 2014's ''VideoGame/SonicBoom: The Rise of Lyric'', the only voice anyone seriously has issues with is Creator/KirkThornton's Shadow. Say what you will about [[ObviousBeta the game itself]]; it has probably the best voice acting in the entire series.

**Interestingly enough, now that they've been gone a while, people seem to be considering the 4Kids cast as the strongest Sonic voice cast, particularly Creator/DanGreen, Creator/LisaOrtiz, Bella Hudson, and Creator/JasonGriffith (2007 and beyond). As an overall group, they are considered to have improved strongly and fit the characters the best by a large portion of the fanbase of the fanbase.
