** Chris Metzen, best known as a story-writer, also voice acts two characters in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III''. These characters, Thrall and Rexxar, happen to get a lot of dialogue in the ExpansionPack's Orc campaign.

* In the ''TokimekiMemorial 2'' games, Hikari Tachibana voices both of [[PolarOppositeTwins the Shirayuki]] [[TwinSwitch twin sisters]], and as such this trope applies in the few scenes where [[ThemeTwinNaming Miho and Maho]] are together and talking to each other.
* TroyBaker provides the voices of both [[FakeBrit Jetfire]] and [[SoulBrotha Jazz]] in ''TransformersFallOfCybertron''. The two even talk with one another in the campaign's finale.
* In the original ''WarriorsOrochi'', when Zhuge Liang sniggers at Zhao Yun's inability to comprehend why TheStrategist is working under Orochi, it's the same seiyu (Masaya Onosaka) acting out this trope. Also, since the game has a character switching system, it's possible to hear the same seiyuu doing the "swap-in" lines for two very different characters. By hearing them, you won't believe that Date Masamune and Fuma Kotaro are done by the same person.

*** The worst offenders are the orcs; there are only two different voice actors for every orc in the game; one male and one female. While the same is true for the argonians, there aren't many places in the game where multiple argonians interact. Orcs, however, have four strong holds that are entirely populated by them and any scripted conversations are going to be between orcs, making it very noticeable.

** F/Final the first fully voiced SRW game probably has the most of this. To save money perhaps nearly all the original and [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden MasouKishin]] characters are voiced by VAs that all had another role in game and usually a main character one as well. (Hikaru Midorikawa for example is Heero Yuy, and also was cast as Masaki Andoh) Although most of these characters haven't appeared since, a few of them have and nearly eclipse the other characters in popularity. Masaki for example became one of Midorikawa's favorite roles, despite initially only getting the part to save time while he was recording Heero.

** ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' has a minor example where Nanako and Aigis both share the same VA, Karen Strassman.
** ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'' has Creator/YuriLowenthal talking with himself, as the protagonist of ''Persona 3'' and Yosuke. [[spoiler:Unlike the case above, they aren't the same person]]
*** Like above, you can also potentially have Creator/KarenStrassman talking with herself as Aigis and Nanako, but only if you get Nanako's navigator DLC.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Each character and their eponymous GuardianEntity Persona are voiced by the exact same actors in all languages, leading to a MagnificentBastard version of a voice actor offering a DealWithTheDevil to themselves during each of the Persona awakening sequences.

** JohnDiMaggio voices both Wakka and Kimahri in VideoGame/FinalFantasyX, although Kimahri talks so little that it doesn't matter all that much. Still, the guy's got amazing vocal range.

* In ''GearsOfWar'', JohnDiMaggio, aka [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]], voices both Marcus and Hoffman, which is amusing when the two of them lock horns.

* ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' has quite a few that poke fun around this. In one stage, [[VideoGame/DotHackR1Games Stehoney (just a random mook)]], [[EndlessFrontier Haken Browning (level-headed)]], [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Batsu (hotblooded)]], and [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Demitri (with the evil sounding deep voice)]] all interact with each other in the same stage. They're all voiced by NobuyukiHiyama.

** Not so, nowadays. In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'', Akuma's now voiced by Taketora, while Bison is voiced by Creator/NorioWakamoto (reprising the role from ''[[CapcomVsWhatever SVC Chaos]]'', where Nishimura still voiced Akuma).
