[[Anime/CodeGeass I, Johnny Yong Bosch, command you...]] '''[[LargeHam TO DESCRIBE ME]] [[DescribeTopicHere HERE]]!'''

[[RunningGag Happily, Your Highness!]] Born John Jay Bosch, Johnny Yong Bosch ([[FanNickname Fan Abbreviation]]: JYB) is a former ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' star (he was [[ThrowItIn a frog]]) who has since moved on to {{Anime}} voice acting, starting as Vash the Stampede in ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', and has since moved on to other lead roles. This coincidentally pitted him as the star and hero for the ONLY TWO new anime Creator/AdultSwim was running for a year and a half- this streak ended when ''Anime/CodeGeass'' completed its run in May 2009. This plus the earlier run of ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' led many to call the starting anime block "The JYB Power Hour". When combined with his role as Ichigo in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Adult Swim meant two things: shows from Williams Street, and shows starring JYB. He is the vocalist for his own band, Eyeshine. Oh, and he's also an accomplished martial artist who could [[{{Badass}} kick]] [[IKnowKarate your ass]].

His Japanese vocal equivalent is Creator/MasakazuMorita, since their voices have identical ranges. His career path, on the other hand, mirrors MasayaMatsukaze. In terms of casting, he is the American equivalent to Creator/JunFukuyama, as well as being the California counterpart to Creator/SoichiroHoshi [[note]]Alongside with Creator/YuriLowenthal[[/note]] and Creator/HiroShimono, and the western counterpart to Creator/HiroshiKamiya. His Canadian counterparts are Creator/BradSwaile, Creator/KirbyMorrow and Creator/AndrewFrancis, and his Texan counterparts are Creator/ChrisPatton, Creator/ToddHaberkorn (who currently also works in L.A.), Creator/DavidMatranga, Creator/MicahSolusod and Creator/BlakeShepard. Creator/ErikKimerer is shaping to be his successor.

-----
!![[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers It's Tropin' Time!]]
* AntiHero: Surprisingly, despite him constantly being typecasted as heroes, he's quite capable of voicing anti-heroes such as Lelouch Lamperouge .
** Mr. Bosch himself stated in his [[http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=74120855&blogId=204807209 Myspace blog]] that anti-heroes are his personal preference.
* {{Bishonen}}: He's voiced quite a few.
* ButNotTooForeign: WordOfGod, he's [[NoKoreansInJapan half-Korean]] [[http://www.halfkorean.com/?page_id=379]].
* CastingGag: He shares a total of five different roles with Jun Fukuyama (Albert Morcerf from ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'', Lelouch Lamperouge from ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Haruto Sakaki from ''Anime/WitchHunterRobin'', Juto from ''VideoGame/MagnaCarta'', and recently Yukio Okumura from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'').
** Johnny was the English voice of Creator/DaisukeOno after the two shared the role of Itsuki.
* CrossdressingVoices: While he hasn't voiced any female characters, some of the younger boy roles he's played happened to be voiced by a woman in the Japanese dub (i.e. [[Anime/EurekaSeven Renton]] and [[VideoGame/MugenSouls Ryuto]]). In fact, the youngest character he's voiced in anime is Noby[=/=]Nobita from ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'', who happens to be 10-years old.
* DarkerAndEdgier: His more recent roles have characters that are either [[AntiHero morally ambiguous]], [[DarkAndTroubledPast have more broken past lives]], sociopathic and/or psychopathic, or just plain sullen and stoic.
* DumbIsGood:
** If his character is good, he's generally not that intelligent. If his character is smart, he's generally [[ManipulativeBastard not very good]].
** Ichigo Kurosaki is an interesting aversion to this trope, because while he's got the LeeroyJenkins thing down, he's actually quite intelligent, both in school and in battle. This totally applies to Ichigo's SuperpoweredEvilSide, though.
** Yu Narukami is a complete aversion. Not only is he very smart and resourceful in battle and school, he's also the main hero. Or it's possible said smarts come from eating [[RunningGag stuff out of the fridge]].
* FullNameBasis: A lot of people say his full name when talking about him; even on this wiki.
** One exception was in the first few episodes of Power Rangers where he was introduced, when he was credited under John Bosch.
* TheHero: His primary forte. As he once noted in an interview, it was his "perfect Hero Voice" that landed him [[Manga/{{Trigun}} his first anime voice acting role]].
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Since his vocal range is limited due to typecasting, his voice acting is ''easily'' the most recognizable by many fans, even when he's supposed to be playing a different character.
** Subverted with the title character from ''Manga/SoulEater'', ''he'' was misattributed to this character before it was later announced that the newcomer Creator/MicahSolusod is voicing Soul. [[labelnote:*]]It also doesn't help to note the fact that Johnny worked with Creator/FUNimation on several titles in the past. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as he was raised in a town in [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]] during his childhood years where it's located ''near Funimation's headquarters''[[/labelnote]]
*** And to make this HilariousInHindsight, Micah [[PoorMansSubstitute will be replacing Johnny's role as Kazuki]] in the recent [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Fafner film adaption]] dub and it happened again on ''Anime/LastExileFamTheSilverWing'' with Claus Valca[[note]]Although to be fair, Claus's appearance is a brief cameo[[/note]].
*** And when you thought that things couldn't get any funnier, ''Anime/EurekaSevenAO'' gets dubbed and has Johnny and Micah playing father and son.
** Likewise with Pit in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' (actually Antony Del Rio). This case is interesting because it persisted even after Johnny himself stated that he didn't voice Pit.
* HotBlooded: Also part of his primary forte, though ironically in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', he voices Rossiu, TheSpock amongst the cast.
* KidHero: Ever since his PlayingAgainstType role of [[Anime/EurekaSeven Renton Thurston]], he's been getting ''some'' roles where he uses a higher-pitch voice that casts him into younger characters. We've got [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Emil]], [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Almaz]], [[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan Sakura Kusakabe]], [[VideoGame/FragileDreamsFarewellRuinsOfTheMoon Seto]], [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Xiba]], [[Anime/TenkaiKnights Guren]], and [[Anime/{{Doraemon}} Noby]]; they all have a higher pitched voice in stark contrast to his older characters like [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Ichigo Kurosaki]].
* LargeHam:
** Most of his voice acting makes the characters larger than life to the point of SuperlativeDubbing.
** Taken a step further in the ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'' dub. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IG_3jCkKBAU As you can see]], he not only puts the emotion to it when Yu's presented with a large beef bowl, he literally ''devours'' it.
** His performance as [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Sanada Yukimura]] was highly praised for his dedication in [[NoIndoorVoice screaming just about every single line at the top of his lungs]].
** Let's just say that hamminess is part of his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdtFnUf5Py0 blood]].
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent:
** While he's capable of pulling off a high-pitch voice like Renton Thurston, he hadn't played any role that involved pulling off an accent. That was until:
** He's spoken in a completely different language in a dub - being [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} Izaya's]] voice actor required him to speak Russian for a few lines. It sounds near perfect compared to Izaya's original voice.
** Similarly, while still easily recognizable, he also attempted a Japanese accent in ''VideoGame/BinaryDomain'' as Kurosawa. Seeing as he'd worked a lot of anime titles in the past, it's no surprise he managed to pick this accent up quickly.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: A majority of his roles are HotBlooded [[TheHero heroes]] that tend to be very [[LargeHam hammy]].
* PlayingAgainstType:
** In addition to above mentioned roles, he's voiced a whiny ButtMonkey, Sakura Kusakabe, from ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan''.
** And as Rossiu in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Since he usually plays HotBlooded {{Large Ham}}s, you'd think the man would be right at home in a series where [[WorldOfHam more than half the cast fits that description]], but he voices one of the few characters who ''doesn't'' chew the scenery.
** And mentally unstable psychopaths such as [[LightNovel/FateZero Ryuunosuke Uryuu]], [[VideoGame/KillerIsDead Tokio]], [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Adachi]], [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasori]], and [[Anime/{{K}} Saruhiko Fushimi]]. The last one is a subversion though.
** Fuji from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'' is a friendly, calm, ever-smiling DudeLooksLikeALady who's voiced by a woman in the original Japanese.
** Kurosawa from ''VideoGame/BinaryDomain'', as he's not only a ByTheBookCop ReasonableAuthorityFigure, he also gave the character a Japanese accent, which surprised many people since [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent he rarely does accents in his voice work]].
* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** Usually plays either [[TheLancer alongside]] or [[TheRival opposite]] to Creator/YuriLowenthal. [[Anime/{{Persona 4}} And once]], ''[[ActingForTwo both]]''.
** Also worked with Creator/CrispinFreeman in many of the voice acting work, either as [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya a]] [[Manga/WolfsRain steadfast]] [[Anime/WitchHunterRobin ally]] ([[Anime/EurekaSeven or]] [[Anime/LastExile understudy]]) or [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} overly]] [[Anime/CodeGeass smug]] rival, as well as [[VideoGame/GodsEaterBurst inferior]].
** His characters also tend to get paired with those played by either Creator/StephanieSheh or Creator/LauraBailey, the former especially so.

!!Tropes associated with his band:
* AlbumTitleDrop: In "Silverstar" on Tone of Echoes.
* MrFanservice: Band co-founder and drummer Maurice is this. See WalkingShirtlessScene.
* PerishingAltRockVoice: Johnny sings this way pretty often, probably because his voice has gone raspy from all the yelling he's done in doing anime voices.
* RevolvingDoorBand: While Eyeshine has some fame, the band isn't a full time gig for any of its members. As such, many members have had to leave to focus on their careers or left for personal reasons, so the band's gone through many guitarists and bassists.
* RockstarSong: "Let's Play Our Way".
* StudioChatter: Done at the beginning of "Blackout" on Red Stripes White Lights.
* TeamDad: Crossing over with PapaWolf, Johnny is definitely this. He takes very good care of his bandmates and will shed his normally easygoing demeanor if a situation could affect them or the band negatively.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Maurice nearly always plays their live shows without a shirt.
