* The Latin American dub for ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' has ''several'' cases of Playing Against Type. Seriously, Ichigo is voiced by [[Anime/InuYasha Kohaku]]? Kenpachi is [[Film/HarryPotter Dumbledore]]? Renji, by [[Manga/TriGun Vash The Stampede]]? Mayuri, by TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir? Chizuru, by [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Kodachi Kuno]]? Byakuya, by [[Manga/OnePiece Roronoa Zoro]]? Yumichika, by ''[[Anime/GhostSweeperMikami Tadao Yokoshima]]''?! And the list goes on, and on, and on...
** Mayuri is voiced by who? Oh dear god, I just imagined him singing the Fresh Prince Theme...Awesome.
*** Imagine Mayuri [[Series/{{Baywatch}} running down the beach in a red bathing suit]] or [[JackieChan knowing his Kung Fu]] too. Yeah, Juan Alfonso Carralero is the usual Mexican dub voice for David Hasselhoff ''and'' JackieChan. How's that?!
** No, Zoro is voiced by Gabriel Basurto and Bykuya is actually Christian Strempler. And Aloof Older Brother's aren't new to Alfredo, his most famous role was Sesshoumaru from ''Anime/InuYasha''. ZORO is the role where he plays against type. And he ''nailed'' the role -- but sadly the ''Manga/OnePiece'' dub is VERY hated among Latin American fans for being based on the 4kids version of the show. Which is sad considering that, performance wise, it's actually pretty good.
*** If you think of it, Chris Strempler ''is'' playing against type here to a degree. His most popular roles until then were the DeadpanSnarker Cam Watanabe from ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'' and Shiryu in the TV dub of Manga/SaintSeiya the Hades Saga.
** Even more so! Ricardo Mendoza is an expert in playing TheLancer or the NumberTwo (either HotBlooded or DeadpanSnarker subtypes). His role in ''{{Manga/Bleach}}''? SOUSUKE MOTHERFUCKING AIZEN. It makes TheReveal so very ''weird'' to watch - specially because some fans were betting on him playing Renji instead.
* Portuguese theatre actor, dancer, etc. Henrique Feist has had this at least twice: First, his most famous dub work would be in {{Manga/Dragon Ball}}, as Goku (as a plus, he voices him both as a kid and a grown-up). Not surprising, since most actors at that time (and some now) originated in such backgrounds. What's more surprising is his role in {{WesternAnimation/The Prince of Egypt}}, as ''[[BigBad Ra]][[AntiVillain me]][[AntagonistInMourning ses]]''.
* Dirty-mouthed comic GeorgeCarlin played Mr. Conductor in the American version of ''ThomasTheTankEngine.''
** George occasionally brought this up in his stand-up, including one of his HBO specials, when talking about the problems with kids these days. "This is Mr. Conductor talking! I know what I'm talking about!"
** Music/RingoStarr later had played the same role. Imagine children's surprise upon discovering the Beatles and seeing Mr. Conductor with a band singing about ''drugs''.
* Mexican bass-baritone GerardoReyero usually plays TheStoic ([[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} Cyclops]]), the TeamDad ([[{{Manga/Bleach}} Ukitake]]), or the BigBad ([[DragonBallZ Freezer]]). And then he plays [[{{Manga/Naruto}} Might Guy]].
** Even better! Guess [[WholesomeCrossdresser who did he voice]] in the dub of ''Anime/TokyoGodfathers''?
* Maynardo Zavala was a Mexican voice actor typecast as fat old men with deep voices. Then he was {{Fangface}} (A teenage werewolf whose human form is skinny)
* Laura Torres, from Mexico, is known for [[CrossdressingVoices voicing]] innocent and naive children like [[Manga/DragonBall Son Goku]] ([[DragonBallZ and his two kids]]), [[{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}} Tommy Pickles]], and [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Ralph]] [[TheDitz Wiggum]]. Then she voiced the all but innocent [[Anime/ShinChan Shin-chan]] (Vitello/Phuuz version)... And it's HILARIOUS!
** And she also voiced {{WesternAnimation/Daria}} and [[Anime/YuGiOh Mai Valentine]]. WOW.
* The Mexican voice actor JesusBarrero is mainly known for voicing youths like [[Manga/SaintSeiya Seiya]], [[Manga/DragonBall Yamcha]] (first voice), [[Anime/MazingerZ Koji Kabuto]], [[Anime/DigimonTamers Impmon (and Beelzemon)]], and even [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove Emperor Kuzco]]. Then he became the [[TheOtherDarrin second voice]] of [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]]. These days, he still voices immature characters.
** Let's not forget him as Professor J and ''Dekim Barton'' from the ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' dub.
* Although said characters are actually in line with his regular typecasting, it's still {{uncanny|Valley}} to hear characters speaking with EdAsner's voice in Creator/LucioFulci gore films.
* The Italian dubber of [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]] was Tullio Solenghi, a comedian who usually plays light and sympathetic roles.
* Due to his high-pitched voice, Italian actor Davide Garbolino is typecast as kids and/or {{talking animal}}s. Somehow he was also [[DragonBall Adult Gohan]].
* Danish actor Mathias Klenske is usually type-cast as teenage heroes such as [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash]]. Then he became [[TotalDramaIsland Chris McLean]].
* In Brazil, Fábio Lucindo usually voices teenage heroes (i.e. [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]]). Then he became [[KickAss Red Mist]].
* German dubber Hannes Maurer is usually typecast as sweet little boys such as [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Spike]]. Somehow he became [[KickAss Red Mist]], who is anything but sweet.
* Hungarian voice actor Csongor Szalay usually voices children or teen heroes. Then he became [[{{Manga/Naruto}} Gaara]].
* Mario Scarabelli is an Italian voice actor with a rough voice, usually voicing either old or grumpy characters, like [[SpongeBobSquarePants Squidward]] or [[DragonBall Muten Roshi]]. For some reason he also voiced [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Cheetor]] and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Big McIntosh]].
* In Hungary, Janka Solecki voices villainous women such as [[TotalDramaIsland Courtney]] and [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Azula]]. However, one of her roles where she didn't portray a villain, was [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Applejack]].
** This is reversed in Poland, where Monika Pikula voices nice ladies, such as [[TotalDramaIsland Anne Maria]], [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Sam Manson]], and [[SpongebobSquarepants Sandy Cheeks]]. However, she voiced Azula, who wasn't nice.
* Hungarian dubber Szabolcs Palmai is usually typecast as teenagers or {{Adorkable}} characters. [[CowboyBebop Vicious]] is how brutally he played against type.
** Likewise, Tamas Markovics is usually cast as [[TheScrappy disliked characters]], {{Butt Monkey}}s, {{Jerkass}}es or {{Adorkable}} youths. [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Shining Armor]] and [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011 Lion-O]] are neither.
* Polish actress Ewa Smolinska is known in her few voice acting roles as a number of HotWitch characters such as [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]] (replacing notable actress Zofia Mrozowska), [[SupermantheAnimatedSeries Mala]], [[AdventuresoftheGummiBears Lady Bane ''and'' Marzipan]], and [[{{Disney/Aladdin}} Mirage]]. She is also notable for being one of the female voices of [[TheBraveLittleToaster Lampy]].
* Ruben Cerda is a Mexican comedian that have dubbed a lot of [[BigGuy big and good]] guys, and his two most known roles in dubbing are MickeyMouse and {{Barney}}. Then he gave voice to the big, but not so good [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Oogie Boogie]].
