!!Tropes associated with Karen Strassman:
* {{Badass}}: [[TheDanza Kallen]] Stadtfeld of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is one of her ultimate successes.
* BilingualBonus: Is very fluent in French, which does have a lot of impact in her voice acting.
* ContraltoOfDanger: Due to the fact that she's fluent in French and many {{badass}}es she played, a lot of the characters she voices tend to be this. That being said, she's also capable of voicing characters that require a higher-pitch such as [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Nanako]].
** This is especially true in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' where the champions she voices have relatively deep voice. An good example is Fiora, who spots a French accent.
** Also, her voice acting is actually deep enough to voice young boys, as evident with her role as Casval Rem Deikun (young Char) in ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin''.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: Either as a {{Badass}} or as a CoolBigSis. Or in the scope of ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends''... HalfHumanHybrid (with just Fiora as the exception)
** Need a [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench hot chick with French accent]]? Hire this lady.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[ShrinkingViolet Olivia]], [[TheCutie Nanako Dojima]], [[{{Bifauxnen}} Heinkel]], and [[CrossDressingVoices Casval Rem Deikun]].
* RelationshipVoiceActor: With Creator/MelaLee, Creator/CrispinFreeman, Creator/JohnnyYongBosch, Creator/MichelleRuff, Creator/SandyFox, Creator/CristinaValenzuela, Creator/CassandraLee, Creator/ChristineMarieCabanos, Creator/KateHiggins and a lot more.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Some viewers have considered her performance as Rider to be this in the Fate/Stay Night series.
* WomanOfAThousandVoices: Hoo boy. She can do teenage girls, {{Badass}} ladies, robotic girls and... an adorable little sister ("[[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Everyday's great at your Junes!]]")
