Bang Zoom! Entertainment provides examples of:

  • Amateur Cast: Most of their anime and video game dubs after 2011 falls into this trope, usually involves young and newer voice talents from open auditions from Anime Expo.
  • Digital Piracy Is Evil: A issue Eric P. Sherman brought up with his controversial comments. This trope is also stressed by many voice actors who work with Bang Zoom!
  • Pigeonholed Voice Actor: Zig-zagged. At first, it seems that Bang Zoom! has a habit of doing this with their own voice actors (especially with their newer voice talents). However, since Bang Zoom! is known to get new voice talents through Anime Expo, many of the voice actors who seem to be typecasted usually break away from their typecast once they establish a professional career. In some cases, Bang Zoom! may have the voice actor Playing Against Type and end up with a new typecast after the said role. note 
  • Viewers Are Geniuses: The casting of Lucky Star manages to keep all the references and Actor Allusions intact, and even throws in more references in some cases.
