* 1977's ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'' by Tatsunoko Production had the Dorombo gang consisting of Doronjo (Noriko Ohara), Boyacky (Jouji Yanami) and Tonzura (Kazuya Tatekabe). Following Yatterman is Zenderman, Rescueman, Yattodetaman, Ippatsuman, and Itadakiman, and they all featured expies of the first trio all voiced by the same trio of seiyuu. So you can imagine what happens when all of these trios would meet in the 1993 Time Bokan OVA....
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Due to being a LongRunner and having LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, English dub actors are now voicing ABOUT FIVE popular to obscure roles each!
* There is frequent doubling among the actresses playing the 31 schoolgirls from Negi's class in the North American dub of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' It's relatively common to find two or more girls all performed by the same actress chattering among themselves:
** Alison Retzloff plays both of the twins Fumika and Fuuka Narutaki, who are always talking to each other.
** Creator/MonicaRial plays Konoka Konoe, Kazumi Asakura and Satsuki Yotsuba; in episode 16 she has to voice both sides of a "sports announcer" team when Konoka and Kazumi host a contest broadcast to the dorm TV set.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ8kxM0Xvhc Love Sensation]]", featuring Creator/LauraBailey as Ayaka Yukihiro and Creator/LauraBailey as Evangeline [=McDowell=].
** Notably averted in the original, where each girl has a different VA, quite impressive.
* ''ShamanKing'''s dub also had this with the main hero [[BrilliantButLazy Yoh Asakura]] and the BigBad [[EvilTwin Hao]] being voiced by the same actor, Sebastian Arcelus, which made the later interactions and fight scenes all the more impressive.
* Because of its LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, some of the voice actors in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' had to voice multiple characters. Luckily for the studio, it is nearly impossible to tell in many cases.
** Creator/ChiwaSaito voiced lead ActionGirl Subaru, her antagonist counterpart Nove, ''and'' TheDragon, Quattro. Particularly impressive considering that one is a GenkiGirl, one is angry all the time, and one is dripping villainy.
** Creator/ShizukaIto did Shario, Otto, ''and'' Deed.
** KaoriMizuhashi did Yuuno, Vivio, and Sein, though this is generously averted in the TV series as Yuuno was DemotedToExtra. Yuuno and Vivio talked to each other in Vivid, but it is a comic series. However in the PSP game ''[[VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable The Gears of Destiny]]'', Yuuno and Vivio played this straight. In a likely reference to this piece of trivia, Yuuno is the first person Vivio fights against when she appears in the game.
** Creator/MaiNakahara did Teana, Laguna Granscenic and Megane Alpine, also averted.
** Creator/NatsukoKuwatani did Arf, Lutecia, Sette and Auris, though like in KaoriMizuhashi 's case, averted.
** Creator/MarinaInoue did Cinque, Wendi and Erio, so this is played straight.
** Eriko Kigawa did Ginga, Uno and Tre. In ''[[AudioPlay/StrikerSSoundStageX StrikerS Sound Stage X]]'', all three characters share the same dialogue. One is a nice young women, the other is more or less evil adult woman with a matured voice, the other one is a androgyne woman with an even deeper and angry voice. The latter two are not amused to talk with the former.
** Creator/AyakoKawasumi plays the little NiceGirl Ixpellia, and the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Mariages]], [[NightOfTheLivingMooks an army of undead cyborgs]] which Ixpellia can't control.
** Played straight with Creator/NanaMizuki's roles as Fate, Alicia and Levi.
** Creator/YukariTamura, Creator/NanaMizuki and Creator/KanaUeda play the three Aces (Nanoha, Fate and Hayate) and whose three Material counterparts (Stern, Levi and Dearche) in ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable'', resulting some hilarious dialogues.
** While ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' hasn't been dubbed yet, the first season of Nanoha had a similar moment when both Momoko and Falin (both voiced by Michelle Ann Dunphy) had a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlPrbo1Pc4Q scene together]].
** Creator/ChiwaSaito and Creator/MarinaInoue admit in an interview they were confused when their characters Subaru and Erio fought Nove and Wendi, respectively.
* The titular characters of [[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]] and Manga/InuYasha [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inJnkSqNpAY get a moment of this.]]
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' Most voice actors who dub Yugi Muto also voice Yami Yugi in the second anime series. Also, Creator/MegumiOgata in the first.
* Many versions of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'':
** Creator/ChristopherSabat is most notable in the English version, playing Vegeta, Piccolo, Yamcha, Shenron, Zarbon, Jeice, Burter, Recoome, Guru, Moori, Kami, Mr. Popo, Turtle, Colonel Silver, Grandpa Gohan, Korin, Borgos, Officer Black, Omega Shenron, and countless others. This led to a hilarious slip-up when Vegeta's line of "Now what?" in internal monologue came out in Jeice's voice instead (it was subsequently corrected for the remastered release).
** Stephanie Nadolny voiced all of the male members of Goku's family as kids, with the exception of Goten, who was voiced by Videl's voice actress, Creator/KaraEdwards. Creator/MikeMcFarland played a few characters himself, voicing Master Roshi, Yajirobe, Mez, Baby Vegeta, and others. Another frequently used voice actor was Creator/KyleHebert, who voiced Adult Gohan, Pikon, East Kai, the King, Appule, General White, the Ox-King, and also narrated DBZ. Dale D. Kelly voiced Ginyu and narrated a few seasons of the pre-remastered version (and used pretty much the same voice, it was obvious). In addition, Creator/JustinCook voiced Raditz, Super Buu, and adult Dende; Linda Young voiced Frieza, Fortune Teller Baba, and Fasha; Meredith [=McCoy=] voiced Android 18, Launch, and Maron; Creator/SonnyStrait voiced Krillin, Giru, and Bardock; Brad Jackson voiced Oolong and King Cold; Monika Antonelli voiced Puar and Chiaotzu; Creator/ChuckHuber voiced Emperor Pilaf, Garlic Jr, Android 17, Mr. Robot, Mr. Shu, and Kibito; Creator/LauraBailey voiced Dende, Kid Trunks, Hasky, Kid Chichi, Princess Oto, Ranfan, Akane, Erasa, and some appearances of young Vegeta; Susan Huber voiced Suno, Upa, young Pan, and adult Videl; Josh Martin voiced Commander Red, Fat Buu, and Kidd Buu (who spend about four episodes fighting each other); and last but not least, Creator/SeanSchemmel, the voice of Goku, also voiced as King Kai and Nail (which led to confusion sometimes). The studio's voicepool was fairly small in the beginning, mix that with the show's [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters large cast]], and you've got a lot of this!
*** While some of this has been corrected over time, DBZ Kai had Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard voice both Gohan and Android 18, characters originally voiced by different actors in DBZ (Stephanie Nadolny and Meredith [=McCoy=] respectively).
*** It's even worse when you account for additional characters, since the voices above were recycled for those too.
** The Japanese version, meanwhile, has Creator/HiromiTsuru (mother/daughter Bulma/Bra), Creator/DaisukeGori (Mr. Satan/Gyuumaou, Gohan and Goku's fathers-in-law), Creator/YukoMinaguchi (mother/daugher Videl/Pan) and Creator/MasakoNozawa (Goku/Gohan/Goten/Bardock/Goku Jr., father/son/son/grandfather/great-great-grandson! In other words, Every male member of his family except Raditz)
*** Same with Kozo Shioya in the Japanese version, who voices all of Boo's forms--so in addition to the above, there's also Fat Boo and Skinny Evil Boo's brief fight.
** In the Mexican dub of ''Manga/DragonBall'' Jesús Barrero does the voices for both Yamcha and Puar, who are always together. He only voiced them in the first 60 episodes, though.
*** Another example in the Mexican dub is Laura Torres, which voices Goku, Gohan AND Goten as children. They got different male VA's for their adult selves, though. Though this may not count, since kid Goku, kid Goten and kid Gohan do not interact with one another. (Except in the video games.)
*** In the same deal, we have Mario Castańeda, who did the voice for Adult Goku, but he also did the voice for Turles in the 3rd movie, and Bardock. He also did other voices, like the main title announcer in Dragon Ball's opening, Colonel Silver, Pamput, and the young Master Roshi in a filler. Adult Goku obviously talked with Turles in the 3rd movie, and he had a mind conversation with Bardock in a filler scene during the battle against Freeza.
* This is actually a plot point in ''Anime/ExcelSaga'': The Great Will of the Macrocosm is, in reality, [[spoiler: just another facet of Pedro's Wife]] simply on the grounds that they share the same voice actress. Lampshaded with a quick title card mentioning: "Tough; she still only gets one paycheck."
* Mashiro Kazahana and Fumi Himeno share [[Creator/{{Yukana}} a voice actress]] in the original Japanese version of ''Anime/MaiHime'', which partially underlines the otherworldliness of both characters.
* ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]''
** In one scene of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Gundam SEED Destiny]]'', the two idols, Lacus Clyne and Meer Campbell face off in the ruins, resulting in their voice actress (both Japanese and English dubs -- Creator/RieTanaka and Creator/ChantalStrand, respectively) acting out this trope.
** Prior to ''Destiny'', in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', HoukoKuwashima performs the voices of both Natarle Badgiruel and Fllay Allster, and ends up [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]] on at least one occasion towards the end of the series.
* Creator/RieTanaka (see above) must have had deja vu when she voiced Chi and Freya in ''Manga/{{Chobits}}''.
* Even as a guest star, Tanaka-san doesn't seem to avoid this. Consider ''Anime/HellGirl'' ep. 12, where she voiced a shy girl and the online voice of her Internet pen-pal. (The actual person is a male.)
* Out of 8 characters played by Creator/RinaSato in ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', the MadScientist Shiori and Robot Eight play out this trope.
* Creator/SatsukiYukino as well as her dub counterpart Creator/MeganHollingshead, as Mion and Shion Sonozaki in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi''. Justified -- they are identical twins.
* Creator/BrianneSiddall provided the voice of both Tsukasa from ''Anime/DotHackSign'' and Elk from the ''VideoGame/DotHackR1Games'', both of whom meet for the first time in the ''Unison'' [=OVA=].
* This trope appears in an episode of ''ZettaiKarenChildren''. With Creator/RieKugimiya playing the teleporter Mio and the psychic squirrel Momotaro, she gets a few chances to talk to herself and once, Momotaro becomes Mio's HeadPet.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''
** Averted by the dub. In Shino Aburame's first appearance, he was voiced by Creator/SamRiegel, who also voiced Zaku. Later on, they fight each other in the chunin exam, but by that point, Creator/DerekStephenPrince had replaced Sam Riegel as the voice of Shino.
** Something similar happened with Itachi, who was voiced by Might Guy's VA Skip Stellrecht in his brief first appearance, but Creator/CrispinFreeman had taken the role by the time that they ended up talking to each other about fifty episodes later.
** They also invert is: Zetsu has a SplitPersonality, with two different halves of his body sounding different. In the original is was just one voice, but the [=ViZ=] dub gave each side a different voice one, so instead of one voice actor pretending to be two different characters at once, you have two voice actors pretending to be one character (though this was only in his first appearance).
** There's also Gamakichi and Gamatatsu in the English version, who talk to each other in several scenes. They're voiced by Kakashi's VA, Creator/DaveWittenberg, but don't ever talk to him.
** Averted with Tobi and Madara. Originally, they were both voiced by the same actor (Creator/NaoyaUchida) but once Tobi's true identity is revealed, he is eventually voiced by Creator/WataruTakagi the voice when Tobi was goofy, albeit with a much more serious and deeper voice. [[spoiler:At the time when Tobi was still imitating Madara, both have never met each other again until Tobi's identity was revealed.]]
* The English dub of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' used Creator/MichelleRuff for several voices, including Euphemia li Britannia and the stray cat that would come to be known as Arthur, who had a conversation of sorts in episode five, when they both had their first speaking roles.
** Ruff also does a large portion of the incidental female characters in ''ZatchBell''.
** Barely averted in ''LuckyStar'', in which she voices both Tsukasa and Minami. However, Minami is in Yutaka's group, and she's also TheQuietOne.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}''
** In the 4Kids dub, there were a few examples of this, and ''all of them were main characters''. Creator/VeronicaTaylor -- Ash, May, and Delia Ketchum ("The Right Place At The Right Mime" had May and Delia sounding ''very'' similar). Creator/RachaelLillis -- Misty and Jessie (and Pikachu in the first episode). Eric Stuart -- Brock and James. Oh yeah, Ted Lewis did James for the first several episodes, didn't he? Well, he went on to do Giovanni and Tracey, though that's not an example.
** ''PUSA'' isn't innocent of this either. Jimmy Zoppi/Billy Beach, as well as still doing Gary, took over as James and Meowth, while Michelle Knotz voiced Jessie, May and Misty.
** And in both dubs, it's incredibly common for members of the main cast to also voice many of the Pokémon on the show, and in the case of Pokémon on their own teams, it essentially mean they are commanding themselves. Just look up who voices who; you'll find plenty of trainer/Pokémon crossovers.
** This happens in the original Japanese, too. MegumiHayashibara, for example, not only voices Musashi (Jessie) but also Fushigidane (Bulbasaur), Pidgeon (Pidgeotto), and Hikozaru (Chimchar).
** Quite a bit less known than her main role in the series, but Creator/IkueOtani voices Manene (Mime Jr.).
** Emily Jenness voiced both Cynthia ''and'' Dawn.
** Ritchie in the Indigo League ended up battling a trainer with the same voice actor.
** In one of the more bizarre incidents of [[TalkingToHimself Talking to Themself]] in the English dub, Professor Ivy and all three of her [[CreepyTwins triplet research assistants]] were voiced by Kayzie Rogers.
** In the current dub, Bill Rogers is the voice of Brock, Brock's Sudowoodo and Brock's Croagunk. (His Happiny is voiced by Emily Jenness.)
** The Danish dub of the two first seasons initially only had two female voice actresses.. Misty had her own voice actress (Lulu Jacobsen), but Ann Hjort voiced every single other female character (Delia, Joy, Jenny, Jessie, Misty's sisters, all [[CharacterOfTheDay characters of the week]] etc.), leading to quite some gratuitous TalkingToHerself. Later, a new voice actress was hired for some of the characters of the week, but the regulars were all still voiced by Ann Hjort. On the other hand, the dub almost averted it for the regular male characters: Ash, Brock, James, Meowth, Oak, Gary and the narrator all had different voice actors, though Meowth's actor (Peter Zhelder) also voiced Giovanni, and the male characters of the day usually shared voices with one of the aforementioned main characters.
* The American dub of ''Anime/SevenOfSeven'' avoids this (it prefers HeyItsThatVoice instead), if you consider the various Nanas to be one character; if not, you have Creator/VeronicaTaylor doing seven different characters (and two of them use her "Ash" and "May" voices!). The original Japanese version used seven different actresses for the seven Nanas. [[spoiler:We later find out that it's actually EIGHT different characters]]
* Happens quite a bit in ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''.
** In episode 15, mother and daughter characters Cally and Paula are both voiced by Creator/RachaelLillis (and just to make it funny, it's in her Jessie and Misty voices)
** In episodes 10 and 11 of ''NEXT'', Rachael does it again playing both Martina and Kira.
** Later in ''NEXT'', we have Creator/VeronicaTaylor voicing both Amelia and Auntie Aqua.
** In ''TRY'', Scottie Ray plays both Valgaav and Erulogos. They just barely invoke this trope.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}''
** In ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', Renamon (and evolutions), Ruki's mother, and Ruki's grandmother are all voiced by Imai Yuka. She probably had a lot of fun when said characters had lunch together in one scene.
** ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' also had Iori and Armadimon, who were partners and both voiced by Megumi Urawa in the Japanese version, and the dub had Veemon and Ken both voiced by Derek Stephen Prince. Also in the Japanese, Ken and his brother Osamu were both voiced by Creator/RomiPark.
** In the Latin-American dub, Roberto Mendiola voiced Yukio Oikawa, Mummymon... ''and Malo Myotismon''. And made the three sound ''very'' different.
** Funny enough, that's exactly the case in the original Japanese as well, where Oikawa, Mummymon and [=BelialVamdemon=] are all voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa. You really have to listen carefully to hear any resemblance between the three characters' voices.
** Speaking of the Latin-American dub, ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'''s main voice cast was the same size as the group of Digidestined, which meant each main character shared a voice with a Digimon partner: Tai with Gomamon, Matt with Agumon, Sora with Gabumon, T.K. with Biyomon, Mimi with Patamon, Izzy with Palmon, and Joe with Tentomon. When Kari joined, she and Gatomon would share their voice actor with almost no differentiation, making their case the most blatant one (not to mention that, being partners, they played this trope much more frequently than the others). 02, however, recast Kari, Gatomon, and all human males besides Joe, drastically decreasing their use of this trope.
** In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', Jou and his older brother, Shin, are both voiced by Masami Kikuchi. In ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', Kikuchi also voiced their middle brother, Shuu, and in the CD dramas, he also voiced both their parents. In one family dinner with Gomamon, a six-person conversation is voiced by two actors. It's interesting because the characters (Jou and Shuu especially) have similar inflections, but distinct voices.
** Creator/SteveBlum barely avoided it in ''Adventure 02'' (neither Flamedramon or Raidramon got to chat up [=BlackWarGreymon=], though Poromon gets awfully close in episode 33), but in ''Tamers'' he voices three main characters that sound completely different: Guilmon, Kenta, and Yamaki!
** In the Latin American dub of ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' Rolando de la Fuente voices both Thomas and Agumon, funny because [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wyIftdG96Q they have completely different voices]].
** And then in Anime/DigimonTamers, Creator/SteveBlum voiced 3 characters: Guilmon, Kenta, and Mr. Yamaki. There were some instances where Guilmon and Kenta were talking to each other. I quote "Kenta: Guilmon, why won't I become your partner? Guilmon: But Kenta, Takato is my tamer. Haven't you been paying attention?"
** ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' has Creator/DaisukeKishio voicing both Zenjirou, Beelzebumon, Blastmon and, in [[Anime/DigimonXrosWarsTheYoungHuntersLeapingThroughTime the sequel series]], Dracmon. Then there's Creator/BinShimada, who voices Tactimon, Omegamon and Starmon.
** Then there's the fact that Miki and Megumi are both voiced by Karina Altamirano.
** In the European Portuguese dub of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', the six main Digidestined (Davis, Yolei, Cody, Kari, T.K. and Ken)'s voice actors ALSO voice their respective Digimon. But sadly, the voices are EXACTLY the same, save for having a slightly higher pitch. Seriously, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2ACCacALHo they didn't even try]]. Which means that every scene in which a Digimon talks to their partner was made quite awkward.
* Both the title character of ''Anime/AfroSamurai'' and his annoying sidekick/hanger-on Ninja-Ninja are voiced by Creator/SamuelLJackson. [[spoiler:Turns out it's like this ''in series'' to some degree, as Ninja is a figment of Afro's imagination.]]
* ''Anime/BloodPlus''
** Saya's adopted little brother, Riku, and the BigBad, [[spoiler: her twin sister]], Diva, are both voiced by Creator/AkikoYajima in the original. [[spoiler:So she not only talks to herself, she ''rapes'' and ''kills'' herself. Of course, poor little Riku doesn't actually do much talking during that particular interaction as opposed to [[MoralEventHorizon whimpers of absolute terror.]] It also makes Diva's later transformation into Riku's appearance and using his voice all the more flawless and disturbing.]]
** In the English dub, Creator/KariWahlgren voices both Saya ''and'' Diva. Creator/CrispinFreeman voices Hagi, Van Argeno, Joel Goldscmidt, and ''several'' other characters. Creator/WallyWingert voiced Amshell, Nathan, and George.
* TalkingToHimself is relatively rare in Brazilian dubs, especially nowadays, since there are rules about it, but there were some exceptions. In ''Manga/InuYasha'''s dub, voice actress Leticia Quinto voices both Kagome and Kikyo. In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Marik and Odion were both voiced by voice actor Jose Parisi Jr... A season later they must've noticed that the move was not wise, as Marik's voice actor was changed.
* Briareos and Tereus share the same voice actor in ''{{Appleseed}} Ex Machina'', by the virtue of having nearly identical genetic makeup.
* In the ''Horitsuba Gakuen'' [[{{omake}} CD dramas]] for ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' and ''Manga/XxxHOLiC'', twin brothers [[spoiler: Fay and Yuui]] are both voiced by Creator/DaisukeNamikawa.
* ''AxisPowersHetalia''
** Namikawa also voices twins, where he uses a Fay-like voice for spacey North Italy and a deeper, louder voice for grumpy South Italy.
** Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi does the same trick with America and Canada, the difference being that America TALKSLIKEHE'SJUSTHADANESPRESSO and Canada is Konishi speaking as quietly as he can, eh.
** While this trope is mostly averted in the English dub, Eric Vale plays America and Canada in pretty much the exact same way.
** Atsushi Kousaka takes the cake by voicing the JerkAss Prussia, {{Meganekko}} Estonia, and ThePhilosopher Greece.
** Raivis/Latvia is a VERY weird case. In the CD dramas he was voiced by the female Creator/RieKugimiya, who voices the TokenMiniMoe Liechtenstein. In the anime, he's voiced by the male Kazutada (later "Kokoro") Tanaka, who also voices Poland.
** While Namikawa voiced the younger South Italy for a line in the first episode, both him and Chibitalia are now voiced by the same actress, Aki Kanada. While Chibitalia's voice is shrill and the epitome of TastesLikeDiabetes, Chibiromano's voice is rougher and more fitting of his brattier, grumpier personality.
** YukiKaida voices both [[CrossdressingVoices China]] and Taiwan in the drama [=CDs=]. She's also the narrator in the anime.
* ''ShugoChara'' has lead heroine Amu and Dia, one of her [[GhostInTheMachine Charas]], voiced by Kanae Itou. Dia is essentially a part of Amu herself, but Amu's other charas have different voices.
* The dub of ''GreatTeacherOnizuka'' does this frequently, with Creator/SteveBlum and Creator/WendeeLee voicing several major and minor characters.
* Sara Werec of ''SoukouNoStrain'' and Mariette, the bully who torments her, are voiced by Kawasumi Ayako in Japanese and Creator/CaitlinGlass in English. Tanaka Rie also played two characters, but they never spoke to one another.
* In ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'', the nine [[SpiderTank Tachikomas]] are all voiced by Creator/SakikoTamagawa, and they frequently chatter with each other. The English dub uses several different actresses.
* In ''RoninWarriors'', Sage and Cye are both voice-acted by Michael Donovan, which is why Cye has an inexplicable sort-of-British-like accent.
* In both ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' and the ''Anime/PrettySammy'' [=OAVs=], Sasami and Tsunami talked to each other in both the Japanese (Creator/ChisaYokoyama) and English (Creator/SherryLynn) versions (except for Sammy [=OVAs=] 2-3 where Lara Cody filled in as Tsunami).
** Not to mention Sherry Lynn was also Kiyone's original voice actress before Wendee Lee took over the role in later media.
** In both English and Japanese, Nobuyuki and Katsuhito Masaki (Tenchi's Father and Grandfather respectively) were voiced (in Japanese) by Creator/TakeshiAono and (in English) by Jay Hopper and later Creator/BobPapenbrook.
** Also in the English version, Matt K. Miller voiced both Tenchi and (originally) Yosho.
** Jennifer Darling, who usually voiced Ayeka, was also Lady Tokimi's original voice actress. She also voiced Tenchi's aunt.
** In the English dub of Pretty Sammy, Ramiya and Rumiya were both voiced by Susan Marie Brecht, while in Episode 1, Ellen Gerstell (Mihoshi's then-voice actress) doubled as Sasami's mother before Creator/RebeccaForstadt took over both roles in Episodes 2 and 3.
** Funaho and Misaki were both voiced by Grace Zandarski in OVA 2, who later voiced Achika in Movie 1.
** In OVA 3, Creator/MonaMarshall voiced both Ryoko and Rea, and used pretty much the same voice.
* In the OAV ''[[HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 2 - Shiroki Ryuu no Miko]]'', Creator/IkueOtani voices both Fujiwara no Yukari and Fujiwara no Misono. Justified in that not only they are twins, but both are clearly {{exp|y}}ies of Fuji-hime from the original ''Harukanaru Toki no Naka de'' (also voiced by Ōtani in the first OAV and the TV anime series). The voices are slightly different, as [[HalfIdenticalTwins Yukari is female and Misono is male]].
* In the Japanese version of ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]'', both Alphonse Elric and the miniature panda Shao May are voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya.
* The Swedish dub of ''{{Cyborg 009}}'' is ridiculously blatant about this. How bad is it, then? ''One person'' does all the voice for all characters. Men, [[CrossdressingVoices women,]] children, what-have-you. Any scene where any two or more characters are talking thus falls under this trope.
* Magnificently averted in ''LegendOfGalacticHeroes'', where only two characters in a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters cast of 660]] share a voice actor, and they never interact.
* Occurs in ''Manga/OnePiece'' when Jimbei and Moria, both voiced by Katsuhisa Hoki, briefly clash during the Marineford arc. Thankfully, the two have completely distinct voices, Jimbei's being deep and gruff while Moria's is high and shrill.
** The original French dub of One Piece had this with Zoro and Sanji, who not only argue constantly, but were played with the exact same (painful) voice. Thankfully averted by the later dub.
** The {{Funimation}} dub deliberately takes steps to avoid this. In the DVDCommentary, it's been stated that the VAs who play members of the Straw Hat crew are typically not allowed to voice other One Piece characters (Creator/ColleenClinkenbeard has voiced some small female roles like Moodie and Myrue, but since her main role is [[CrossdressingVoices Luffy]], it is less of an issue) so that they don't have to concern themselves with accidentally sounding like another character they happen to voice. It makes more sense when you remember that {{Funimation}} picked up One Piece when it already had [[LongRunners 300+ episodes]].
*** It happens though, but it's rare for a voice actor to have more than two significant roles. CynthiaCranz has probably voiced the most though: Onion, Bellemere, Ms. Father's Day, Young Zoro (originally), and Ririka. She also once mentioned that she was the original choice to play Ms. [=MerryChristmas=]. Creator/BrinaPalencia is also the main voice for Young Zoro as well as Carmen in addition to her role as Chopper.
** The 4Kids dub was pretty bad about this. David Wills voiced both Buggy and Arlong, J David Brimmer voiced Captain Morgan, Gaimon, Lucky Roux, Gold D. Roger, and Crocodile. Tara Sands also voiced Miss Kaya, Nojiko, Makino, and Young Luffy, and Erica Schroeder herself voiced both Luffy and Miss New Year's Eve (Miss DoubleFinger).
* Some combinations imitate ventriloquism. ''VampirePrincessMiyu'' has Creator/MegumiOgata voicing both [[AnIcePerson Reiha]] and her CreepyDoll Matsukaze. ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' has Mika Kanai counterbalancing Vanilla's [[TheQuietOne lack of speech]] through [[TeamPet Nomad]] [[StalkerWithACrush gushing]] over her.
* Early European Portuguese dubs had this bad: ''Manga/DragonBall'', ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', and ''Anime/SailorMoon'' had less than ten voice actors. They were fairly versatile, though.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' had a couple of shared seiyuu (Creator/KeikoHan as both Luna and Queen Beryl, Creator/ChiyokoKawashima as Haruna-sensei, Shingo and Sailor Pluto), but usually the characters were too different, not allowing even for a small conversation between them. Then came the fifth season and brought in Chibi-Chibi, voiced by Usagi's seiyuu Creator/KotonoMitsuishi -- it's rather easy to pull off this trope when one of the characters has a trait of PokemonSpeak.\\\
Worth noting that the last pair actually ends up playing the role of a RedHerring, especially with all the guesses and jokes about Chibi-Chibi being Usagi's second daughter. Had the anime followed the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] closely, the shared voice would've had a justification, as Chibi-Chibi is [[spoiler:Sailor Cosmos, who is hinted to be a form of Usagi from a distant future]]. In the anime, she is a completely different entity, [[spoiler:namely, Galaxia's own Star Seed -- meaning that in this continuity she has nothing to do with Usagi apart from wanting to encourage her to defeat Galaxia]].
** The original DiC/Cloverway English dub has some of this, although since it had a fairly large talent pool to work with, it's not nearly as bad as other dubs. It's been mentioned that the voice directors were trying to avoid using the same voices too much. When it did happen, the most glaring example is Emilie-Claire Barlow filling in for Katie Griffin as Sailor Mars for the last 17 episodes of R before also taking over Sailor Venus for S and [=SuperS=] (when Griffin returned to voice Mars), but since she never voiced the characters at the same time, this wasn't a big deal. Another noticeable example was Barbara Radecki voicing Serena's Mother before also voicing Sailor Neptune; she also voiced Queen Serenity for one brief appearance, as well as a few monsters of the day. These were usually voiced by Maria Vacratsis early on, but were later voiced by other people like Mary Long (who also voiced Molly, and became the second voice for Katzy), Loretta Jaffelice (Diana's voice), and Catherine Disher (who also voiced Mimette). Jill Frappier, Luna's voice, was also heard as Sailor Pluto's voice for her VERY first vocal appearance in the Luna-P, and filled in as Queen Beryl during a flashback. Tracey Moore, Sailor Moon's original voice actress, later voiced one of the Doom-and-Gloom Girls, but since the voice was completely different, it was hardly noticeable. Sabrina Grdevich also voiced both Ann and Sailor Pluto, and Vince Corazza voiced Alan before he took over Tuxedo Mask. In S, Susan Aceron voiced both Sailor Pluto and Mistress 9, and Jen Gould, Hotaru/Sailor Saturn's voice, voiced Para-Para in Super S.
** The VizMedia/Studiopolis dub is already invoking this trope with many voice actors voicing lead characters and smaller ones, especially monsters and characters-of-the-day. There's a very straight example in Episode 8 where KateHiggins voices both Ami/Sailor Mercury and Garoben (the monster-of-the-day), who do briefly talk to each other.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'' has ''a lot'' of characters played by the same person in the Japanese version. For example: Jet, Macao, Horologium, and Sagittarius are voiced by Masaki Kawanabe.
** In a literal example of people talking to themselves, a bunch of characters get to meet their [[BizarroUniverse Edolas]] counterparts, leading to plenty of this trope throughout the arc.
** Special mention goes to episode 98, which features Cana and Aquarius bickering with one another--both voiced by Creator/EriKitamura. Lucy even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] how similar the two are (note while Lucy makes such a statement in the manga, it's arguably more effective in the anime to compare just how similar the two sound together).
* All of the five characters from ''MoriNoAndo'' are voiced by Takishi Taniguchi.
* In one episode of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', Conan voices one of that week's victims, a female pop star. Many jokes are had at Conan's expense, especially considering that [[IronyAsSheIsCast he can't sing for his life, but his voice actress is really a singer.]]
** To make things clearer, Conan's voice actress is voicing both Conan and ''a fictional version of herself''. The gag was repeated when the episode was dubbed in English (Creator/AlisonViktorin, Conan's English actress, voiced the singer in the dub as well), but the in-joke about Conan teaming up with the in-universe version of his real life voice actress was lost due to the Americanization of the show that changes all the characters' names.
*** Several other dubs made it too. The Spanish dub played it completely straight since Diana Torres, Conan's voice actress, is a singer too.
* ''Anime/TheIdolmaster'': Ami and Mami are both voiced by Creator/AsamiShimoda. Justified in that they're twins.
* Spanish group Luk Internacional is infamous for this, having only a few voice actors, yet doing many series with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. An example of this was the same VA, with the exact same voice, doing ''CrayonShinChan'''s Masao and Shinko-chan, among other minor characters. Amusingly, half of the ''KochiKame'' male characters seem to be voiced by Shin-chan's dad, recognizable because he always sounds the same.
** And this doesn't just happen in anime. The same group voiced ''X-Men Evolution'', and in Shin-chan's dad, in addition to voicing loads of secondary characters, played... Wolverine.
* The English dub of ''Let's Go Quintuplets'' features Creator/ChantalStrand voicing best friends, Vanessa and Bridget. Due to their friendship, this tends to happen.

* ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman''
** In ''Anime/BattleOfThePlanets'', six [=VAs=] had the bulk of the voice work. Keye Luke, as both Zoltar (the Spectran leader) and his superior, the Luminous One, did this regularly.
** A later adaptation of ''Gatchaman'', ''Anime/GForceGuardiansOfSpace'' had Barbara Goodson voicing two of the team members, Aggie and Peewee. The roles in this version were also split among a small bunch of actors, due to the low budget.
* In one episode of ''Anime/BusouShinki'', Creator/KanaAsumi voices seven characters. Justified in that all of them are Arnval model Shinki, and confusion between two of them is a plot point.
* Because ''Ojarumaru'' has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, several voice actors play multiple roles.
** Creator/ChinamiNishimura plays Ojarumaru Sakanoue (second voice), Komachi Ono and Hoshino Mama (second voice).
** Creator/KazuyaIchijou plays Aobee, Makoto Tamura, Icchoku Honda, Cow and Sam.
** Creator/HaruhiTerada plays Arisa, Hifumi, Hoshino Mama (third voice), Kaminari Akane, Kin-chan Mama, Komachi Mama, Ojarumaru's Mother and Cowko.
** Hiroshi Takahashi plays Kii-chan, Cold Tessai and Tsukkii.
** Creator/KotonoMitsuishi plays Aka Murasaki Shikibu, Hoshino Mama (first voice), Princess Okame, Nomi Nomiyama and Tomi Nomiyama.
** Creator/SatomiKoorogi plays Ai Tamura, Kame Kameda, Tome Kameda and Enma Wife.
** Creator/YujiUeda plays Kisuke and Okorinbou.
