Tropes associated with Carrie Keranen:
- Action Girl: Many of her more well-known roles qualify, such as Casca and Satsuki Kiryuin.
- Corpsing: Who'd guess that out of the entire cast, Satsuki would flub her lines and go off-script with vulgar jokes?
- Cosplay Otaku Girl: Not really, but she did dress as Satsuki at Anime Expo 2015. And she rocked it.
- Freak Out!: As stated above. We understand you, Ms. Keranen, no one expected you to anticipate that by Aniplex.
- Large Ham: As Sara, it's pretty clear she had a lot of fun voicing the character.
