* Etna from ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' was originally voiced by Creator/AmandaWinnLee (''Manga/GunsmithCats'', the ''Anime/ReadOrDie'' OVA), but MichelleRuff (''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'', ''KannazukiNoMiko'') took her place in pretty much every other NIS game.

** To reflect its status as a prequel, ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins'' sees Creator/RogerCraigSmith and Creator/TroyBaker as the [[TimeShiftedActor younger versions]] of Batman and the Joker respectively, as opposed to getting Creator/KevinConroy and Creator/MarkHamill back (that and the latter having retired from the role). Similarly, Creator/JBBlanc replaces Creator/FredTatasciore as Bane, Creator/BrianBloom replaces Creator/NolanNorth as Black Mask, and Creator/KharyPayton replaces Creator/SteveBlum as Killer Croc. As with the recasting Gordon and Martha Wayne, the recastings of Black Mask, Killer Croc, and Bane are surprising, considering North returned to reprise the role of the Penguin, and Tatasciore and Blum returned to provide other voices. Speaking of Gordon, he's recast ''yet again'', this time with Michael Gough voicing him, who ironically, despite voicing a younger version of Gordon, is older than both Kane and Kaye. Simiarly, Kelsey Lansdowne replaces Creator/KimberlyBrooks as pre-Batgirl/Oracle Barbara Gordon and Dick Grayson as Robin is voiced by Creator/JoshKeaton as opposed to Creator/QuintonFlynn.

** ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' sees Creator/JohnNoble replaces Dino Andrade and Christian Lanz as the Scarecrow. Creator/JonathanBanks is Commissioner Gordon, making the fifth voice actor the present day version of the character has had in the Arkhamverse[[note]]in a case of TimeShiftedActor, Creator/RickDWasserman voiced a young Gordon in the second Scarecrow hallucination in ''Asylum''[[/note]] Likewise, Creator/AshleyGreene voices Batgirl/Oracle as opposed to Kimberly Brooks or Kelsey Lansdowne, Nightwing is voiced by Scott Porter as opposed to Quinton Flynn or Josh Keaton, and despite Creator/TroyBaker coming back as Two-Face and the titular Arkham Knight, Creator/MatthewMercer replaced him as the Tim Drake Robin. However, the main game does see the return of Tara Strong as Harley, Tasia Valenza as Poison Ivy, Wally Wingert as the Riddler, [[spoiler: and Mark Hamill as the Joker]], and the "Season of Infamy" also sees Steve Blum back as Croc.

** The tie-in film, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'' sees Creator/HyndenWalch as Harley (who first voiced the character on ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''), replacing both Sorkin and Strong; Creator/NealMcDonough replace Chris Cox as Deadshot, despite Cox being present; and [[Series/CriminalMinds Matthew Gray Gubler]] replace Creator/WallyWingert as the Riddler. Cox himself is the fourth person to voice Commissioner Gordon, and many characters appear, but don't speak, having their grunts done by other people, including Creator/JohnDiMaggio (Killer Shark) filling in for Tatascoire and Blan as Bane, Creator/JenniferHale ([[RoleReprisal Killer]] [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Frost]]) filling in for Tasia Valenza as Poison Ivy, and Christian Lanz (who voiced Bird in ''Arkham Origins'') as the Scarecrow.

** Several of the characters were not able to get their original actors to play them. For the most part, the replacement voice actors give very good and uncanny performances emulating the voices of the characters. However, some of them manage to sound a little off. The voice actors for [[Film/MonstersUniversity Sulley]], [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]] and [[Film/WreckItRalph Ralph]] are some of the biggest offenders.
