* TheOtherDarrin: In the Japanese, Fuyuki was originally played by Creator/TomokoKawakami. However, she left the show about two-thirds of the way through its run and was replaced by her longtime colleague Creator/HoukoKuwashima (who incidentally took over several of Kawakami's other roles later after Kawakami died of cancer in 2011).

** This is also the case for minor character Melody Honey, in her initial appearance in ''Anime/SevenOfSeven'', Melody Honey was voiced by Creator/NaokoMatsui, however in ''Manga/ArcadeGamerFubuki'' as well as her appearances in this series, she's voiced by Creator/MegumiToyoguchi
* TheOtherMarty: Keroro, Kululu, Natsumi, and Mr Narrator were recast between Funimation's preliminary tryout dub of episode 12-B and their released dub (Giroro and Tamama remained the same). It seems like they didn't even re-record Brina Palencia (Tamama)'s lines.
** For the record, in the tryout episode Chris Cason was playing Keroro and Creator/ToddHaberkorn was playing Kululu.
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]]: Keroro meets an alien version of his own seiyuu, Creator/KumikoWatanabe. Sadly all her future appearances are scarce on dialogue.
** Also, Dororo and Dokuku share the same seiyuu.
** Creator/KeijiFujiwara as both the Narrator and Paul may be old news now, but one recent episode plays this trope to the letter when Paul explains an important plot point ''to the Narrator''.
*** This is not the case in the English dub, where Creator/KentWilliams plays Paul and R Bruce Elliot plays the Narrator.
** That said, in the dub Creator/LeahClark plays both Fuyuki and Lavie (who, admittedly, don't really share a lot of scenes) and Creator/ToddHaberkorn is Keroro and Dance*Man

** Had the English distribution rights remained to ADV, the show would've aired on television in the United States. Creator/CartoonNetwork liked a mass-media pilot and Creator/Nickelodeon liked a kids' pilot (in fact, Nick said they would air the show if ADV got merchandising rights). To this date, the Funimation dub has never aired on television in the United States outside of their own channel, and no network has picked it up.

** The dub was also going to have some [[DubNameChange name changes]], such as changing Natsumi to Natalie[[note]] This one actually happened in most non-Asian countries to air ''Frog'', so Funimation wasn't exactly pulling a 4Kids here,[[/note]] and removing the third syllable of the frogs' names (Keroro became Kero, Tamama became Tama, etc). This was changed due to negative reception, and they instead went with the original names for the characters.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In Funimation's dub...
*** Keroro is [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Firo]], [[Anime/SoulEater Death the Kid]], [[Manga/AxisPowersHetalia Northern Italy]], and [[DGrayMan Allen Walker]].
*** Tamama is [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Ennis]], [[Manga/BlackCat Eve]], and [[OnePiece Tony Tony Chopper]].
*** Giroro is [[DragonBall Piccolo, Vegeta (among others)]], [[YuYuHakusho Kuwabara]], and [[Manga/OnePiece Zoro]]. This is also not the first time Christopher Sabat has voiced [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist a very intimidating but sometimes very whacky career soldier.]]
*** Kululu is [[DragonBall Emperor Pilaf]], [[Anime/SoulEater Dr. Stein]], and [[YuYuHakusho Hiei]], not to mention [[spoiler: [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist another, considerably darker mad scientist character who works for the military...]]]].
*** And Dororo is [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Issac Dain]], [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Scar]], and [[Manga/OnePiece Eneru]].
** How about the Japanese version?
*** It's hard to see Giroro in the same light when you realize that Creator/JojiNakata also voiced [[{{Hellsing}} another red-clad character, who's a hell of a lot more violent and much more effective...]] Also, [[Film/ThreeHundred Giroro... Is... Leonidas]]!
**** A competent officer who constantly has to put up with a frustratingly WildCard that he can't control. Are we talking about Giroro and Keroro or [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Van and Asch]]? Hilariously, this one got lampshaded in the RPG where Giroro got to use Van's [[LimitBreak Ancient Requiem]], as one of his specials.
*** Kululu is [[WeissKreuz Aya Fujimiya]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Zechs]], [[MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro Neuro]], and [[Anime/ExcelSaga Lord Il Palazzo]]
**** [[Manga/BoboboboBobobo "Hey, what about me?!"]]
*** It's not hard to imagine Keroro shouting [[{{VideoGame/Klonoa}} "WAHOO!!"]]

** Also from Saburo in episode 298, a reference was made to Akira Ishida's role as Xellos from {{Slayers}}, with Saburo using his catchphrase, "[[ClassifiedInformation That is a secret!]]"

Added DiffLines:

* GodCreatedCanonForeigner: Katoyama Kiko, a human mecha designer who joined the Keron Army for a while, and also Mois' friends, girls with similar missions to judge and destroy planets, like Maya, Luz and New, who appear in one story of the last season of the original anime, were all created by Mine Yoshizaki but have made no appearances in the manga at all, not even in small cameos.

* TheAbridgedSeries: It's had a few, but ''WebVideo/SgtFrogAbridged'' by Creator/TheMidnightFrogs is the best known.
** If it weren't for that whole "not actually abridged" thing, [[GagDub the Funimation dub would be one itself]].

** A ''GundamWing'' parody in Episode 320 has Kururu turned into a Zechs Marquise-like character. TakehitoKoyasu, Kururu's Japanese voice actor, also voiced Zechs in ''Gundam Wing''.
