* In ''Anime/{{K}}'''s English dub, even though several voice actors play more than 5 characters, this is averted except in the Scepter 4 role call, where Creator/ChristopherCoreySmith plays Camo and Goto, and Creator/GrantGeorge plays Hidaka and Fuse. Both of them, as well as Benzai's voice actor Creator/KirkThornton, also play HOMRA members, so this might happen across battle lines.
** What's a particularly noteworthy aversion, however, is Creator/LucienDodge's three characters - HOMRA members Tatara Totsuka and Masaomi Dewa, and the Silver King, Adolf K. Weismann - [[spoiler: and a fourth character, the Colorless King who is possessing Weismann for most of his appearances - and meanwhile, Weismann is in the body of Tooru Hieda, voiced by Creator/SamRiegel]]. His characters are in the same scene three times. One: in the flashback in episode 6, with Tatara and Masaomi, but the latter doesn't say anything. Two: [[spoiler: in the murder video, the Colorless King, in Hieda's body, kills Tatara]]. Three: [[spoiler: in the office in episode 12, after Weismann-in-Hieda's-Body (Shiro) recovers his memories, Dewa is also in the room - so he talks to himself, but in someone else's body]].

lines. The series' rather fragmented cast (at least for such a short anime) keeps it from being an issue in a lot of cases, though; Creator/ColleenOShaughnessey's three characters - HOMRA TokenMiniMoe Anna, WWII scientist Claudia, and OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Sakura - are unlikely to ever meet.

** [[spoiler: Creator/SamRiegel voices both Weismann and Colorless in their BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind - justified since they're both depicted as Hieda. ...poor Hieda.]]

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Due to being a LongRunner and having LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, English dub actors are now voicing ABOUT FIVE popular to obscure roles each!

** The Creator/{{FUNimation}} dub deliberately takes steps to avoid this. In the DVDCommentary, it's been stated that the voices who play members of the Straw Hat crew are typically not allowed to voice other One Piece characters (Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard has voiced some small female roles like Moodie and Myrue, but since her main role is [[CrossdressingVoices Luffy]], it is less of an issue) so that they don't have to concern themselves with accidentally sounding like another character they happen to voice. It makes more sense when you remember that Creator/{{FUNimation}} picked up One Piece when it already had [[LongRunners 300+ episodes]].

* Creator/MamoruMiyano and his dub counterpart Creator/VicMignogna, as Zero and Ichiru Kiryu in their respective dubs of Manga/VampireKnight. Justified that they're identical twins.



* In the Japanese version of ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'', both Alphonse Elric and the miniature panda Shao May are voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya. The dub averts it; with the exception of Rose and Winry (who were both voiced by Creator/CaitlinGlass, reprising her roles from the original anime), every single character has a unique voice actor, even in situations where they could easily have gotten away with it, like Father/Hohenheim and the multiple incarnations of Greed.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Keroro meets an alien version of his own seiyuu, Creator/KumikoWatanabe. Sadly all her future appearances are scarce on dialogue.
** Also, Dororo and Dokuku share the same seiyuu.
** Creator/KeijiFujiwara as both the Narrator and Paul may be old news now, but one recent episode plays this trope to the letter when Paul explains an important plot point ''to the Narrator''.
*** This is not the case in the English dub, where Creator/KentWilliams plays Paul and R Bruce Elliot plays the Narrator.
** That said, in the dub Creator/LeahClark plays both Fuyuki and Lavie (who, admittedly, don't really share a lot of scenes) and Creator/ToddHaberkorn is Keroro and Dance*Man

** The original DiC/Cloverway English dub surprisingly averts this for the most part. Some voice actors did play multiple characters (for instance, most of the early monsters of the day were voiced by Maria Vacratsis), but very rarely did they ever come in contact with each other. According to interviews with the voice actors, this was done on purpose. The closest the dub came was when EmilieClaireBarlow voiced both Sailor Mars and Sailor Venus, but she voiced them at different points in the show, never at the same time. Barbara Radecki, who voiced Serena's mom and Queen Serenity, also went onto voicing Sailor Neptune, and used pretty much the same voice, but they never spoke to each other.

* The English dub of ''Anime/SpeedRacer'' has no more than ''four voice actors''. According to the series' [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=776&page=22 trivia on Anime News Network]], this was because Peter Fernandez, also the producer of the dub, was close friends with Connie Orr, Jack Grimes and Jack Curtis, and only wanted them and himself casted for the dub.

* The American dub of ''Anime/SevenOfSeven'' avoids this (it prefers HeyItsThatVoice instead), if you consider the various Nanas to be one character; if not, you have Creator/VeronicaTaylor doing seven different characters (and two of them use her "Ash" and "May" voices!). The original Japanese version used seven different actresses for the seven Nanas. [[spoiler:We later find out that it's actually EIGHT different characters]]

* Taken literally in ''Manga/SoreGaSeiyuu''. Futaba and Korori have the same voice actress because Korori is just Futaba's stuffed doll that she uses to act as the other side of a conversation when she's by herself.
