* HeyItsThatGuy: Fans of [[VideoGame/{{MUGEN}} Salty Bets]] will recognize Sean Chiplock, English voice of Kiyotaka, as Sonicmega, the guy who sings the various parody songs featured in the jokebox (Bohemian Saltsody and Never Gonna Salt You Up, respectively)

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[Creator/MegumiOgata Makoto]] is [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]].
** [[Creator/AkiraIshida Byakuya]] is [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Kaworu]].
** [[Creator/KosukeToriumi Kiyotaka]] is [[VideoGame/{{Persona3}} Junpei]].
** [[Creator/MiyukiSawashiro Toko]] is [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Milla]] and [[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} two]] [[VideoGame/BioshockInfinite different]] [[NamesTheSame Elizabeths]].
** [[Creator/MakikoOhmoto Sayaka]] is Franchise/{{Kirby}}.
** [[Creator/TakahiroSakurai Leon]] is [[Anime/CodeGeass Suzaku]].
** [[Creator/KappeiYamaguchi Hifumi]] is [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Teddie]].
** [[Creator/ChiwaSaito Aoi]] is [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Homura]].
*** Which becomes HilariousInHindsight considering the English version.
** [[Creator/KoukiMiyata Chihiro]] is [[WolfsRain Toboe]].
** [[Creator/YokoHikasa Kyoko]] is [[Manga/KOn Mio]].
** [[Creator/MegumiToyoguchi Junko]] is [[VideoGame/{{Persona3}} Yukari]] and [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Aqua]].

** [[Creator/MasayaMatsukaze Yasuhiro]] is [[Manga/DeathNote Mikami]].
** [[Creator/HekiruShiina Celeste]] is [[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth Hikaru]].
*** [[HilariousInHindsight Which is pretty ironic that Hikaru controls fire, while Celeste looks like she will die in a fire, only to end up being killed by a fire truck instead.]]
** And Monokuma is voiced by none other than Anime/{{Doraemon}}, which creates a rather chilling effect for Japanese players. [[PlayingAgainstType Basically, imagine if the bad guy was voiced by]] WesternAnimation/BugsBunny or MickeyMouse.
** The English dub also calls in some of the more recent voice actors, as well as a few veterans:
*** [[Creator/BrycePapenbrook Makoto]] is [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Eren]] as well as [[VideoGame/TalesofGraces Asbel Lhant]].
*** Kyoko (Erika Harlacher) is [[Manga/SquidGirl Kozue Tanabe.]]
*** [[Creator/LucienDodge Hifumi]] is [[LightNovel/FateZero Waver]].
*** [[Creator/KaijiTang Yasuhiro]] is [[VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage Kenshiro]].
*** Byakuya (Jason Wishnov) is [[Manga/SquidGirl Goro]] and [[VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends Nocturne.]]
*** [[Creator/BrianBeacock Monokuma]] is [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia the new Lloyd Irving]].
*** [[Creator/DorothyEliasFahn Chihiro (and possibly Sayaka)]] is [[Manga/LoveHina Naru]].
*** [[Creator/AmandaCelineMiller Toko]] is [[Manga/SailorMoon Makoto Kino (aka Sailor Jupiter)]]. Her alter ego, [[Creator/ErinFitzgerald Genocide Jack]], is [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Chie]].
*** [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica If you make a contract with]] [[Creator/CassandraLee Aoi]], she'll make you a MagicalGirl! (/人◕‿‿◕人\)
*** This isn't [[VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry the first time]] [[Creator/GrantGeorge Leon's]] utilized his baseball skills for murder.
** The anime dub invokes TheOtherDarrin with all but Makoto, and manages to bring in some well known voices in the process:
*** [[Creator/CaitlinGlass Kyoko]] is [[Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub Haruhi Fujioka]].
*** [[Creator/ChristopherSabat Mondo]] is [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Alex Louis Armstrong]].
*** [[Creator/JustinCook Leon]] is [[Manga/YuYuHakusho Yusuke Urameshi]].

** A later revision had a more serious vibe reminiscent of ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'', with a DeliberatelyMonochrome art style. Instead of a courtroom, the equivalent of the school trials was set in a warehouse. The cast is mostly recognisible; however, their designs were less outlandish overall. An animatic of the first execution can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_W_3w_sfoI here]]; however, it still contains spoilers for the actual game. Everyone's also named differently; for instance, Kazuo Matsuzaki is pretty much a prototype design of Leon Kuwata, right down to the ''same'' execution.

Byakuya would've managed to escape, but would have come out in a cold and snowy place and eventually would've died as a combination of his wounds [[SnowMeansDeath and exposure to the cold]]. He's an asshole, yeah, but that's still ''harsh''.

** In School Mode, Makoto asks Celestia if she's a good singer, and she first claims there's nothing she can't do before questioning if he thinks he's worthy of hearing her. Her Seiyuu Creator/HekiruShiina has been performing and releasing music since 1994, while her dub actress Marieve Herington [[http://www.scottcummingsmusic.com/the-marieve-herington-band/ is an accomplished jazz singer]].

** This ultimately causes Komaru Naegi to have three different English voices. Weirdly enough, according to the DVD commentary Creator/CheramiLeigh (who voiced her in ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'' and whom the studio would have had access to as per her work on ''Manga/FairyTail'') was getting married at the time of recording, leading to Creator/AlexisTipton voicing Komaru for the few lines she had. This indirectly lead to Rachel Robinson (friends with Leigh) voicing Ogami due to being in town at the time.

* DuelingDubs: This began as early as the first trailer for Creator/{{Funimation}}'s dub of ''The Animation''. It goes far enough that NISA and Funimation's scripts are dueling each other, with Funimation getting rid of any DubNameChange's (such as Genocider Syo for Genocide Jack) while preserving the cast's LastNameBasis and "Super Highschool Level" over "Ultimate" titles.
