** ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' was another contentious example- Troy is not only reprising his role of Two-Face from ''Arkham City,'' but he is also voicing the Arkham Knight himself. That's two main characters voiced by the same person, not counting the fact that he voiced Robin in ''City'' in addition to Two-Face, as well as The Joker in ''Origins'' [[spoiler: And now we can add Jason Todd to that list.]]. Overall? That's five main characters within one franchise voiced by the same person. Someone once joked that the rain drops in ''Arkham Knight'' were voiced by Baker.

** Some anime and jRPG fans are a bit disappointed that his presence in anime and jRPGs have greatly diminished ever since his role motion capture role in a AAA game, VideoGame/TheLastOfUs, noting that his jRPG role as Yuri Lowell in VideoGames/TalesOfVesperia help put him in the video gaming spotlight. Many of them are okay with this, seeing that Troy has become a union-only voice actor right now and Creator/MatthewMercer managed to fill in his shoes for anime titles and jRPGs while he works in the big name titles. Other finds are a bit uncomfortable, seeing the high demand of his motion capture work in AAA video game titles has completely limited his original roots of how he entered voice acting in the first place.

** The whole Twitter (Troy, on Twitter, quoted someone else's joke about how Brett Michaels resembled Mickey Rourke after an attempt to become Caitlyn Jenner, which was met with ''slews'' of backlash from the more socially conscious side of his fanbase) fiasco has since divided people between those that feel Troy was going out his way to be offensive and didn't apologise, those that feel the response was disproportionate while criticising his behaviour (Namely, that he didn't respond to said criticism and fled Twitter soon after), those who are enraged at the people who harassed Troy and consider them scumbags who took a joke out of proportion and those that feel the situation is just a storm in a teacup. Either way, Troy was forced to leave Twitter for three months.

* PlayingAgainstType:
** [[CampGay Shadow]] [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Kanji]]. Actual [=YouTube=] comment: "Why, Troy Baker, why?"
** If flamboyance could count as against type, then [[VideoGame/{{Persona 2}} Eikichi]] probably qualifies too.
** His performance as [[WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Michael Korvac]] seems to draw mostly from feelings of paranoia and fear.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Snow]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 Villiers]] is a famous example.
** [[VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron Jazz]] is also a good example.
** A younger version of Creator/MarkHamill's Joker in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins''.
** In recent years, Troy has completely avoided being typecast as he plays a wide variety of distinct roles; in ''Kid Icarus'' alone, his two characters are [[TheStoic polar]] [[LargeHam opposites]].
