* FamilyGuy: Alex Borstein is usually a HollywoodHomely character, and MilaKunis is usually the MsFanservice. As Lois and Meg, the roles are swapped
* Many of the actors from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' were also ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' alumni; you can pretty much fill out the command staff of a Federation starship on them.
** Captain Janeway as Titania would command, though the queen of the fairies is not exactly the most sane CO you could have.
** Her First Officer would be Riker as David Xanatos. Though how long he would remain first officer is debatable, considering that he's ''Xanatos''.
** Councilor Troi as Demona. Probably not the best choice of ship's councilor, what with all of the rampaging hate and evil.
** Second Officer and ship operations go to Data as Puck. It may not be a good idea to entrust such an important position to a [[TheFairFolk trickster elf]], unless you want the ship a few thousand lightyears off course because he was bored.
** At security and tactical, you have Worf as Coldstone (or [[IAmLegion part of him]] at any rate). Oddly enough, he'd be less likely to succumb to TheWorfEffect due to being made of stone.
** Chief engineer would go to Geordi as Anansi.
*** On a minor note, those of you familiar with the voice of Lexington may not spot him as the psychopathic Simon in ''WesternAnimation/InvasionAmerica''.
* Speaking of Data and GregWeisman cartoons, he plays a very knife happy Joker in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.
* Casting Creator/PatrickStewart as Seti in ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' might be considered a DoubleSubversion, as he initially acts like a typical "Patrick Stewart character" as a tough but loving father and authority figure deserving of respect. Then, in sharp opposition to the usual PatrickStewartSpeech, he gives a lecture to Moses justifying feeding thousands of Hebrew infants to the crocodiles. Even though the audience is likely to know of the almost-genocide from the Passover story, having Stewart in this role makes it shocking.
** In a much less serious (and probably intentional) note, in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad,'' Stewart was cast as Avery Bullock, Stan's often whimsical and bizarre boss.
*** Going even further, an episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had ''all'' the Next Gen actors reprising their roles...as ''themselves''. Except that Stewart is the abusive father figure, Frakes is vapid, Dorn is the gentle guy, and Wheaton is the overeager chi...wait a second...
---->'''Wheaton:''' ''[at a drive-thru]'' [[Film/{{Caddyshack}} I want a hamburger. No, cheeseburger. I want a hot dog. I want a milkshake. I want potato chips...]]
---->'''Stewart:''' ''[smacking him hard in the head]'' [[Film/{{Caddyshack}} You'll get nothing, and like it!]]
** "[[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Number One, would you join me in a laugh if I said Commander Worf's forehead looked like a fanny?]]"
*** Similarly, Patrick Stewart being cast as the Yolkian king in ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' qualifies under the comedic against-type casting as well, seeing how his overall character was somewhat comical in spite of his essentially being a sacrificing genocidal ruler.
** ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' had this in spades: action hero-type Val Kilmer as Moses/God comes to mind.
** Speaking of MichaelDorn, he's also known as the cute and brainy [[TheAce ace]] of ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel''.
* James Hong, veteran character actor and better known as cheesy, LargeHam villains in various kung fu productions (particularly Lo Pan of ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina''), appears in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' instead as the clueless, GeniusDitz noodle-making goose Mr. Ping. Meanwhile, ActionGirl Creator/LucyLiu gets to be the sweet-natured, kindly Viper.
** Likewise, in ''Film/BladeRunner'' James Hong appears as a meek genetic engineer specializing in eyes.
** Hong also played goofy Mr. Miyagi parodies in ''Film/BallsOfFury'' and ''Totally Awesome''.
* Though his other roles may not fit, the decision to cast DavidKaye as Optimus Prime in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' raised many eyebrows among the fans, given that Kaye's usual role in previous ''Transformers'' series' has been ''[[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Me]][[WesternAnimation/BeastMachines ga]][[UnicronTrilogy tron]]''.
* Casting Creator/EdwardAsner as Granny Goodness in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' was probably supposed to be this, but felt [[InkSuitActor surprisingly appropriate]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'' had Creator/TimCurry, he of the deliciously slimy and evil-sounding voice, playing the energetic, good-natured, and wholeheartedly lovable naturalist Nigel Thornberry.
* Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz is usually known for playing goofy, loudmouthed characters who scream a lot such as Zim from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', Dagget from ''WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers'', and Billy from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''. However he played a serious role in ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' in which he played Jimmy Osgood, a shy, nerdy boy who was often bullied. Eventually, he loses it and tries to kill his tormentors with a gun, but he is stopped before he can do anything. The gun still goes off, though, and nearly kills [[spoiler:Ritchie]].
** Horvitz also voiced the far more subdued and vastly more intelligent Grey Matter in the original ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}''.
* DiedrichBader. You know, [[TheDitz Oswald]] from ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow''? Now he's playing [[WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand Warp Darkmatter]], [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Hoss Delgado]], and '''WesternAnimation/{{BATMAN|TheBraveAndTheBold}}'''.
** And would have played WesternAnimation/KorgothOfBarbaria, had it been picked up by Creator/AdultSwim.
* Creator/KeithDavid is known for playing villains and DarkIsNotEvil characters. His role as Dr. Facilier in ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' only kept the dark part, and he also has a humorous side. Usually, the characters David plays are serious.
* Music/GreyDeLisle usually specializes in voicing nasty, unsympathetic teen girls such as Mandy in ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', Vicky in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', and the [[DiabolicalMastermind downright diabolical Azula]] in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. In ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', however, she voices Frankie, an essentially caring and good-natured caretaker, and Goo, a friendly (if overtalkative) youngster. More recently, she's given her voice to Doc Holiday from ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'', a caring and friendly scientist who's a surrogate mother to the protagonist.
** And not only that, she was [[Literature/CliffordTheBigRedDog Emily Elizabeth]] and [[WesternAnimation/WowWowWubbzy Wubbzy]] as well.
** She's also [[StarWarsCloneWars Padme Amidala]].
** She also voices Kitty from ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy''.
* Compare Creator/RonPerlman's usual roles of {{badass}}es to his role on ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' as Mr. Lancer, Danny's stern but comical teacher.
* Lorenzo Music, the voice of DeadpanSnarker ''{{WesternAnimation/Garfield|AndFriends}}'' in most of his animated appearances until his death, was also the sweet [[TheFool fool hero]] Ralph (the all-purpose animal) in 1983's ''WesternAnimation/TwiceUponATime''.
* Creator/MarkHamill is most well-known for two roles: [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]] and [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries the Joker]]. Can you get two more divergent roles?
** Mark has also voiced various other major villains, such as [[WesternAnimation/{{Spider-ManTheAnimatedSeries}} the Hobgoblin]], [[WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperForceGo the Skeleton King]], [[Anime/CastleInTheSky Colonel Muska]], [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Fire Lord Ozai]], and [[VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon Malefor]].
** He also voices the enigmatic, morally ambiguous likes of [[WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}} Mr. Selactia]] and [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold The Specter]].
** Or he's done some heroic, but a wee bit to effeminate or sissy sounding characters like [[WesternAnimation/TimeSquad Larry 3000]] and Sean the fairy in Creator/RalphBakshi's ''WesternAnimation/{{Wizards}}''.
** For more classic, [[ChewingTheScenery scenery-chewing]] villainous roles, he also voices Undergrowth in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' and Captain Stickybeard in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''.
*** Most of his characters are very clever in some way. But the [[TheBrute big]], [[DumbMuscle stupid]] [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie]] [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Solomon Grundy]] ain't.
** With his roles as [[HeroFactory Von Nebula]] and [[WesternAnimation/DanVs Dr. Pullem]], it appears that [[LargeHam hammy]] [[BigBad supervillains]] are his type of role nowadays. For a current example of PlayingAgainstType, he now does the gruff-but-likable [[TheStoic stoic]] Skips on ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''.
* Creator/RobPaulsen, who is usually known for his comedic roles, voices the cruel, serious, foul-mouthed gangster Sal Maroni in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanGothamKnight''.
** He also voiced a bigoted racist in a recent episode of ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks''.
*** And Riley's soft spoken, ShellShockedVeteran painting teacher.
*** Don't forget his role as Gray Fox in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: The Twin Snakes'', and fans of the series would think of Gray Fox as anything ''but'' comical.
*** And the truly creepy {{stalker|WithACrush}}, [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries Hydro-Man]].
*** And the manipulative, calculating [[TheStarscream Starscream]] Skales on ''{{Ninjago}}''.
* HyndenWalch, someone who's played characters that are incredibly kind like [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Starfire]], [[WesternAnimation/ChalkZone Penny Sanchez]], and [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Princess Bubblegum]]... plays the frightening, four-armed girl Breach in ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex''.
** Not as extreme, but a villainess nonetheless, was Harley Quinn in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''.
** She also voiced the villainesses [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Blackfire and Madame Rouge]].
* JohnDiMaggio, known for his gruff voice and New Jersey accent, as the usually high-pitched [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]] in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood''. However, upon hearing the performance, most people actually liked it.
** He also voiced the cold, stoic Duke Togo in ''Manga/{{Golgo13}} Queen Bee, most of the characters DiMaggio voices are very loud, quirky, and energetic.
* Creator/CharlieAdler, well known for comedic roles like [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Buster Bunny]], [[WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers Mr. Whiskers]], and that cuddly pink dragon from ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'', as well as [[LargeHam crazy overdramatic]] characters like [[WesternAnimation/AaahhRealMonsters Ickis]], [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken The Red Guy]], and [[WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel I.R. Baboon]], voices Cobra Commander in ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute'', who is quite possibly the darkest and most monstrously evil incarnation of the character to date. He reprises the role in ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades.'' He also played [[{{Badass}} Chance "T-Bone" Furlong]] in ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats''.
** In an inverse to the DavidKaye Franchise/{{Transformers}} example listed above, Adler also voiced the villainous Starscream in [[Film/{{Transformers}} the live-action movies]]. His best known Franchise/{{Transformers}} role prior to that was as the considerably more heroic Aerialbot leader Silverbolt in the original cartoon.
* Pamela Segal Adlon, usually known for voicing young boys or spunky or motherly women, voiced Luanne's violent, promiscuous, alcoholic, neglectful mother in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill''.
** She also plays a coke-snorting sex fiend on ''Series/{{Californication}}''.
* ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'' also had this as well. No, it's not the title character. You know the character Yao? Well, that guy is voiced by Harvey Fierstein, who is nothing like that character.
* ''Film/OverTheHedge'' has an enthusiastic, cheerful raccoon named RJ voiced by BruceWillis. Also, Creator/WilliamShatner as a possum. With Music/AvrilLavigne as his daughter.
** One of the latter two takes part in the song over the closing credits. And it's ''not'' Avril.
* Any character played by TomKenny who isn't [[TheDitz dimwitted]], [[CloudCuckoolander goofy]], [[{{Keet}} energetic]], lovable, crazy, or just plain silly in any way will count as this.
** His role as Doctor Octopus in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' in particular, being quieter and creepier than his other two characters (Curt Connors and The Wizard) in the show.
** There's also his turn as Nute Gunray in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars''. He's pretty damn unrecognizable as him.
** His turn as the solemn, isolated (and kinda creepy) robot Fixit on ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' was only further highlighted by his clearly in-type role as Mumbo the Amazing in the same episode.
** And Sawada from {{TekkonKinkreet}} who is one of the most serious characters he's ever voiced, a no-nonsense, asexual detective.
** There's also [[Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths the Anti-Monitor]] in ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries''.
* Creator/BillieLouWatt, who earned her fame in animation as the voice actress for the AllLovingHero main characters from ''Anime/AstroBoy'' and ''Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion'', has her final role prior to retiring being Eustace's mother, WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog's resident {{Jerkass}}.
* Creator/CreeSummer is famous for voicing young African-American women in most animated cartoons (''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'', ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}''/''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'', etc.), but the first few characters she ever voiced were actually Caucasian women, such as Penny from ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' and Elmyra Duff from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' (her father is white). However, recently, Cree decided to go both ways and as a result, some of the later characters she actually voiced appear to be [[DarkSkinnedBlond dark-skinned women]] with white hair and blue eyes (''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'').
** And then there's her role as the poodle Cleo in ''Literature/CliffordTheBigRedDog''.
** Her role as Protoss Executor Selendis in ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' isn't like the roles she usually plays either. Unlike the other roles she's done before, she really sounds dead serious in this one.
** There's also her turn as Blackarachia in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' where aside from some sarcasm, she actually sounds quite serious and bitter.
* Danny Cooksey is mostly known for voicing a lot of jerks and juvenile delinquents such as [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Montana Max]], [[WesternAnimation/StaticShock Hotstreak]], [[WesternAnimation/KickButtowski Brad Buttowski]], and [[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown Jack Spicer]], but he also voiced the good natured albeit cowardly WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian and the soft spoken, artistic, and sensitive Milo in ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn''.
** He starred in ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' as ''Keef'', of all people.
* One Mr. Creator/AdamBaldwin, known for his roles as gruff badasses, played the cowardly and not so gruff Finn in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''.
** He was also Hal Jordan in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and Superman/Clark Kent in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanDoomsday.'' He reprises both roles for ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' and ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'', respectively.
* Creator/TonyJay as [[WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}} Dr. Lipschitz.]]
** And also fatherly fowl ([[InsistentTerminology not]] [[RunningGag chicken]]) Virgil in ''WesternAnimation/MightyMax''.
* Creator/ChantalStrand, who normally plays sweet, innocent, ShrinkingViolet type characters like Literature/{{Madeline}} (taking over the role from Creator/AndreaLibman), [[WesternAnimation/DragonTales Cassie]], and [[Anime/{{Hamtaro}} Bijou]], was cast against type as the {{Rich Bitch}}es Gemini Stone in ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'', [=McKenna=] in ''Franchise/CareBears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot'' and Diamond Tiara in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic.''
* Back in the 80's, Jerry Orbach was known for playing on Broadway, as the "tough but fair" dad of ''Film/DirtyDancing'', and playing mobsters... so what was he doing playing a Space Cowboy in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers''? Well, he had never done animation up until that point...
* When the intelligent, calm, in-control, thoroughly evil Catbert appeared on ''WesternAnimation/{{Dilbert}}'', he was voiced by Creator/JasonAlexander. [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} George Costanza]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Abis Mal]], [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Hugo]], and WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}} fail to qualify as having any of Catbert's characteristics (with the possible exception of the last one).
* The awesome cool Creator/ScottMcNeil has these moments as well. You may know him as an awesome action hero role type of VA, but did you know he's also played roles of [[WesternAnimation/DragonTales Pungeon Masters]] and [[Anime/{{Hamtaro}} Chicken-phobic shy teachers]] and was even a {{Franchise/Care Bear|s}}? Now you do.
* ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' features Creator/TimCurry as the kind King Maximillian Acorn and Creator/JimCummings, the guy who did Winnie the Pooh, as the evil Dr. Robotnik.
** Cummings also played the incredibly foulmouthed Terror Mask in the 2010 ''VideoGame/{{Splatterhouse}}'' remake.
* In Creator/HannaBarbera's ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', [[{{Musicians}} Folk musician]] Creator/HamiltonCamp voices Harmony, the toned deaf Smurf.
* Creator/TonyTodd, who's best known for his villainous roles ([[Film/{{Candyman}} Candyman]], [[Film/{{Transformers}} The Fallen]], and [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Dreadwing]]), plays the heroic Icon in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.
* Creator/AndreaLibman is best known for her roles on ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' as [[ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy]] and [[GenkiGirl Pinkie Pie]], as well as Emmy in ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' and the titular character of Literature/{{Madeline}} (taking over the helm from Tracey-Lee Smythe). However, you'd be pretty surprised to find out that she once starred in ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men Evolution}}'' as ''[[LaserGuidedTykebomb X-23]]''.
** Her role as Hypnotized!Fluttershy in the Season 2 two parter opening also counts.
* Creator/TaraStrong tends to voice good, even sweet characters - with [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles]] probably being one of the best examples. Of course, she also voiced [[WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether Princess Clara and Toot]] - two characters about as far removed from Bubbles as humanly possible. Tara herself pointed out the trope when ''Drawn Together'' first premiered.
** She was also Harley Quinn in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''.
** Also [[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions Doctor Octopus 2099]].
** And [[WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} Claire Brewster.]]
** While you're at it, watch a few episodes of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and then ''just try'' to play ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw'' without dying from laughter.
* Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson is a man best known for playing characters who are physically imposing, tough, and deep-voiced (Ex: [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Bulkhead]], [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Gantu]], [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades Roadblock]], [[WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries Kilowog]], and [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011 Panthro]]). In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', his role as the skinny and high-pitched [[BlackAndNerdy See-More]] is pretty much the antithesis of [[TheBrute Mammoth]] and [[GodOfEvil Trigon]], the other two characters that Kevin voices.
** He also starred in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', though not as Bane or Killer Croc as one would expect, but as ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker''.
** Among his usual character types in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'', he plays ''Comicbook/HowardTheDuck'' (though Howard was a cameo).
* JenniferHale is probably best known for playing tomboyish and/or ActionGirl females as the [[WesternAnimation/{{Spider-ManTheAnimatedSeries}} Black Cat]], [[VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan Silver Sable]], [[WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego Ivy]], [[WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks Mallory]], [[Franchise/MassEffect Female Commander Shepard]], [[VideoGame/{{Mercenaries}} Jennifer Mui]], [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Bastila Shan]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Sheena Fujibayashi]], [[WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Ms. Marvel]], and [[VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}} Trishka Novak]]. So it's a bit of a shock when she voices a character completely unlike that, such as villainous spoiled brat [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Princess Morebucks]] or {{Adorkable}} scientist Emma Emmerich in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty''. But the best one that goes against type has to be the fact that she's the current official voice actress for Franchise/DisneyPrincess Disney/{{Cinderella}}.
* Creator/DeeBradleyBaker is generally known for playing bizarre, cartoony characters and doing various creature vocalizations, similar to Creator/FrankWelker. This trope applies whenever he plays "straight ahead" roles such as [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Tarrlok]], [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Ra's al Ghul]], and [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars the clones]].
** In ''{{WesternAnimation/Kaijudo}}'', he plays, among his usual character types, an old lady.
* David Kaufman primarily voices characters who are either {{Adorkable}} or unpopular such as [[WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}} Dexter Douglas....]], [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Jimmy Olsen]], [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Danny Fenton]]... oh yeah, and he also seems to be the current voice actor for cocky, hot-headed, hotshot [[VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan Johnny]] [[WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Storm]] of the ComicBook/FantasticFour.
** He's also the JerkJock brother in ''WesternAnimation/TheBuzzOnMaggie''.
* GinaTorres is best known for playing characters who are {{Anti Hero}}ic or downright heroic such as [[Series/{{Firefly}} Zoe Washburn]], [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Vixen]], and [[VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline Wonder Woman]]. This trope comes into play whenever she plays villains such as [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths Superwoman]] and [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Airachnid]].
* Music/JesseMcCartney usually voices young, heroic characters. In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', he voices Nightwing, who is older and well on his way to becoming a morally-ambiguous AntiHero.
* JasonMarsden, who tends to get pegged as adolescent nasally-voiced sidekick type characters like Tino in TheWeekenders or Chester Mcbadbat in FairlyOddParents, actually plays main villain and MagnificentBastard Chase Young in XiaolinShowdown.
* Jodi Benson, who's usually known for playing [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid young]], [[{{WesternAnimation/Thumbelina}} spirited]] [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory3 women]], plays the silly and lovesick Patsy Smiles on ''CampLazlo''.
* Those who know of Creator/KharyPayton best as [[BoisterousBruiser Cyborg]] from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' would be surprised by his ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' roles: Aqualad (a [[TheStoic stoic]] teenage soldier) and Black Manta (a WickedCultured DarthVaderClone who's a member of [[MagnificentBastard the Light]]).
** In ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', he not only reprises the role of Cyborg, but also voices the monstrous Doomsday.
** He's also Charmcaster's EvilUncle, [[EvilSorcerer Hex]], in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}''.
* Creator/LenoreZann, who usually voices spunky {{Action Girl}}s like Rogue in ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'', Aisha Clanclan from ''Anime/OutlawStar'', and Roll.EXE in ''Anime/MegamanNTWarrior'', voices the pessimistic Dottie in the animated film ''Tooth Fairy, Where Are You?''
* Creator/LaraJillMiller as the title role in ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee'', mostly because she's not usually known for playing more aggressive characters of that ilk.
* BrianDrummond usually plays {{Badass}} and/or fearsome characters like [[Manga/DeathNote Ryuk]], [[Anime/GundamWing Zechs]] and [[Manga/DragonBall Vegeta]] (and is responsible for the original "It's over 9000!" {{meme|tic Mutation}}), so it's pretty surprising to find out that he's also the voice behind [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipisMagic Mr. Cake]] and [[WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012 Shivers the Squirrel]].
* Continuing our ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' theme, while John [=DiMaggio=] is no stranger for playing brawling adversaries in Hunter Cain, his ''first'' voice actor is someone who goes by the name of Wrestling/JohnCena. Who's that? Oh...just a famous WWE wrestler who is pretty much Nice Character Nice Actor incarnate and an upstanding {{Face}} in the WWE.
