* ContractualPurity: Averted. Andrew Rannells currently stars in ''Series/TheNewNormal'' and previously ''Theatre/TheBookOfMormon'', some of their [=VAs=] have done hentai (Dan Green, for example), and Jason Griffith did a condom commercial.
** People more savvy of the industry may realize that most of the company's current VA's have worked at CentralParkMedia before (and this includes Dan Green as well); CPM distributed uncut productions mostly for pre-teen to older audiences, such as ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' among others.
* CreatorKiller: [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-12-31/4kids-yu-gi-oh-license-is-still-in-force-court-rules Almost subverted by]] ''Anime/YuGiOh''; TV Tokyo and NAS tried to yank the license, and 4Kids ultimately prevailed within the year, but the damage had been done, and they still ended up selling the rights to Konami for all Franchise/YuGiOh-related merchandise.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The relatively small amount of New York-based VA's and the company's tendency to cast the same people for several projects leads to a lot of this, particularly in shows with lots of characters. Especially prominent are Creator/DanGreen, JasonGriffith, MichaelSinterniklaas, Creator/SeanSchemmel, MarcThompson, Creator/WayneGrayson, and Creator/VeronicaTaylor.
** Erica Schroeder voicing both [[Anime/YuGiOh Dark Magician Girl]] and [[Anime/SonicX Tikal.]] Is a partially funny example because she uses the same voice for both characters, and both fulfill such similar roles you almost expect Tikal to call Sonic "Pharaoh.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Without any of their notable assets, some of the 4Kids dubs of anime have not seen a re-release in some form. While some of their old properties have avoided this by being aired on Creator/{{Vortexx}}, that's likely to be all we'll see of them in this generation. Heck, ''Manga/OnePiece'' was redubbed by Creator/{{Funimation}}, which renders the 4Kids episodes that weren't released on DVD harder to find, even though the first 52 episodes can be found cheap.
** After their contract with FUNimation was terminated for reasons still unclear, 4Kids shows stopped showing up on the home video market. The one exception was Pokemon, who's home video rights remained with Viz. Dinosaur King did turn up on DVD through Shout! Factory, but it didn't sell well enough to justify the company working with them again. After 4Kids sold off their assets, Yu-Gi-Oh! did get a revival on DVD through Cinedigm (formerly NEW VIDEO Group), but it's unknown if any other 4Kids shows will be released to home video through the company. Until then, we have TV rips and foreign [=DVDs=] to rely on.
** According to Creator/MaddieBlaustein, 4Kids apparently DID dub the notorious episode of Pokemon with the seizure-inducing flashing lights. However, despite the lights being slowed down to "safe levels," the Japanese refused to let them air the episode, and the dub has never been discovered.
*** Likewise, 4Kids went back and dubbed the previously skipped "Beauty and the Beach" episode of Pokemon (the one featuring James cross-dressing with inflatable boobs) with the Orange Islands episodes (with the aforementioned scene cut). However, it only aired once, and is not on DVD. TV rips can be found fairly easily online though.
* MissingEpisode: They did this to some of their dubbed anime. ''Anime/YuGiOh'' and the subsequent SequelSeries had a few, but ther dub of ''OnePiece'' is infamous for throwing out entire ''story arcs''. This, combined with 4kids' refusal to release uncut versions of their shows (for the most part), not only created {{Plot Hole}}s, but made it so that these episodes would only stop being missing once {{Funimation}} got the rights.
* MoneyDearBoy: 4Kids was known for paying its actors very well (at least in relation to other dubbing studios). This is why you'll never hear any NYC voice actor express regret for working on a 4Kids series. The scripts may be crap, but reading them pays the bills.
* NoExportForYou: Due to their practice of making Youtube block certain videos from being played outside the U.S & Puerto Rico [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHHAAjL0eOs&feature=channel As mentioned here.]]
