Tropes associated with Brittney Karbowski
- Crossdressing Voices: Notably as Black Star and Selim Bradley.
- This is actually a recent development, because Black Star was her very first male role. She admitted at a panel that this was unintentional, because she was just mocking her little brother's voice at the audition and didn't expect the director to take it seriously.
- Star-Making Role: As Himeko in Pani Poni Dash!, and as Black Star from Soul Eater.
- Tsundere: She does have tsundere roles to boot. Example goes to Angel Beats!' Yuri, A Certain Magical Index's Misaka, Is This a Zombie?'s Yoshida, Infinite Stratos' Cecilia, and Little Busters' Rin.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: Despite being in her mid 20's, she has a pretty good range for voice acting, from energetic genki girls like Himeko Katagiri, to aggressive boys such as Black Star, to an Emotionless Girl, Ikaros in Heaven's Lost Property, to even voicing a British character, Cecilia Alcott, in Infinite Stratos.
