** And then in Anime/DigimonTamers, Creator/SteveBlum voiced 3 characters: Guilmon, Kenta, and Mr. Yamaki. There were some instances where Guilmon and Kenta were talking to each other. I quote "Kenta: Guilmon, why won't I become your partner? Guilmon: But Kenta, Takato is my tamer. Haven't you been paying attention?"

** Also, the Greek dubs of the shows had 7 actors [Iro Loupi, Katerina Girgis, Tzini Papadopoulou, Dimitris Milonas, Loukas Fragoulis, Sofia Panailidou and Argiris Paulidis (the movie also adds Michaela Antoniou)] and the shows can achieve it from time to time (for example, the dub of [[Anime/DigimonAdventure the original show]] had both Tai and Mimi voiced by Iro Loupi).

* In ''Anime/YuriOnIce'', Creator/AkikoYajima voices Axel, Lutz and Loop Nishigori, which is justified since they're triplets. Averted in the English dub, where they're voiced by Lara Woodhull, Kristi Rothrock and Kristen McGuire.

** 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 (which was, by the way, poked fun at in [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/ArtworkJAFanarts/ProjectSMMangaMomIsThatYou.jpg this fanart]]).

* 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 Hawkeye (who were both voiced by Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard, 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.

* 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.

* ''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]].
