* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/MiyukiSawashiro as Celty Sturluson, and the dub casts Creator/KariWahlgren in the role, sounding very much like [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Raine Sage]].
** Creator/MamoruMiyano as Masaomi Kida
*** And Creator/BrycePapenbrook in English. A short blonde womanizer with HiddenDepths? He's [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX basically Zidane]] [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy without the tail]]
** Creator/HiroshiKamiya as Izaya Orihara (The way humans won't love me back has left me in despair!!)
** Creator/DaisukeOno as Shizuo Heiwajima (This one is particularly obvious. Ono has such a distinctive talking style one can't help but hear Koizumi...)
*** Creator/JohnnyYongBosch as Izaya Orihara
*** Looking for confirmation on this, but isn't he also the young student who talks to Mikado at the train station at the end of episode 25?
*** Later, the same VA plays [[Anime/{{K}} Saruhiko Fushimi]], a character who is astoundingly similar to Izaya [[{{Troll}} in personality]], and even dons a similar outfit at one point.
*** Creator/CrispinFreeman as Shizuo Heiwajima
*** This means that Shizuo's both Kyon & Koizumi. Not to mention Alucard. He evens sounds like a more street-thug-like version of him.
*** But Bosch voices Koizumi. Which means Shizuo is Kyon, Koizumi, and...Izayyyaaaaaaa!!!
** Creator/JunFukuyama and Creator/YuriLowenthal as Shinra Kishitani
** Creator/YuuichiNakamura and Creator/SteveBlum as Kyohei Kadota
** Creator/AyahiTakagaki and Creator/MelaLee as Erika Karisawa
** Creator/BrianBeacock as Walker Yumasaki
** Creator/SanaeKobayashi and Creator/BridgetHoffman as Namie Yagiri
** Creator/TakayaKuroda and Creator/PatrickSeitz as Simon Brezhnev
** Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi as Tom Tanaka
** Creator/KeijiFujiwara as Kinnosuke Kuzuhara
** Creator/AkioOhtsuka as Shingen Kishitani (also [[Franchise/MetalGear a master of stealth]])
*** His English voice actor (Doug Stone) voiced Psycho Mantis (who also wears a gas mask)
** Creator/HarukaTomatsu as Rio Kamichika
** Creator/MaiNakahara as Haruna Niekawa
** And for a brief yet hilarious example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fL2m3ekemc&feature=related click here]] and close your eyes. [[spoiler: Now wonder why the hell [[Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia Germany]] is in Durarara and what he's on.]]
** Creator/SakiFujita as Ruri Hijiribe, even if it is a brief cameo.
*** Her [[Creator/CristinaVee English VA]] happens to be [[LyricalNanoha Nanoha Takamachi]], [[Manga/SailorMoon Rei Hino]], [[MadokaMagica Homura Akemi]], and [[Franchise/{{Neptunia}} Compa]].
** Mika Harima, in English, is voiced by Creator/CarrieSavage- the same voice actor as provided the voice of [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Lua]]! It's especially worthy of note in that Carrie Savage is one of the ''only'' English voice actors to appear in both ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' and ''Durarara!!'', since they're dubbed by different companies (even Isaac and Miria were outfitted with new voice-actors for ''Durarara!!'').
*** Creator/BrinaPalencia becomes the second, voicing Ennis in ''Baccano!'' and Vorona in ''Durarara!!x2''.
** [[CatchPhrase JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK]] [[Creator/KyleHebert HORADA]] [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann IS]]!?
** Creator/SpikeSpencer as [[ButtMonkey Saburo Togusa]], [[FreakOut naturally]].
** Creator/KirkThornton as Takashi Nasujima - which is weird because he [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss hates teaching and doesn't impart knowledge.]]
** Creator/YujiUeda as Takashi Nasujima
** Creator/EriKitamura as Mairu Orihara. Notably, this isn't the first time Kitamura has voiced the [[LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}} hyperactive half of an eccentric twin sister pair]] with Creator/HiroshiKamiya as an older brother.
** In the upcoming Mexican Spanish dub, Shinra is [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Brock]] and [[Anime/YuGiOh Maximillian Pegasus]].

* ActorAllusion: Patrick Seitz (Simon Brezhnez in the English dub) actually lampshades the fact that "[He's] played [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline black guys]] and [he's] played Russian guys, but never at the same time".
** Shingen Kishida [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid used to be with FOXHOUND]] before he fled America after the uprising failed and became a father to Shinra and worked for Nebula.

* ContinuityCameo: In episode 8, among the requests the blonde tourist has gathered, there's a doodle of two girls searching for Hanejima Yuuhei - the [[spoiler:Orihara]] twins from the novels. They actually [[LastEpisodeNewCharacter show up in the last episode/second OVA and don't have much plot importance]]. In the same OVA, Mikado also briefly encounters a boy who might be Kuronuma Aoba.
