Tropes relating to Erica Mendez:
- Action Girl: If she isn't voicing a young boy, many of her female characters definitely will lean towards this trope.
- Crossdressing Voices: Like Mona Marshall, Amanda Celine Miller, and Marianne Miller, she's one of the few voice actresses who is capable of voicing young boy characters. However, she seems to be moving away from this typecast recently.
- Fake Brit: Had to pull a British accent for Jim Hawkins, something she stated was very difficult to do.
- One of Us: Video gamer, anime fan, and even plays League of Legends (she also stated on Twitter that she will love to voice a champion in League of Legends if given the chance). note
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: Her primary forte seems to be young boy characters. In fact, according to her, she has been cast (including roles that hasn't been announced yet) into 7 boys and 1 girl, at least in Bang Zoom! Entertainment side of things.
- Relationship Voice Actor: With her Platonic Life Partner Lucien Dodge, as they both worked together in many video game and anime voice work.
- She Also Did: A fandub of Persona 3 Drama CD as Aigis, doing an impressive Karen Strassman impression here.
- Star-Making Role: Aladdin from Magi is what got her a lot of recognition and popularity within the anime fandom. Ryuko Matoi from Kill la Kill helped to solidify her stardom.
- Spiritual Successor: For young boys, she serve as this to Mona Marshall and Brianne Siddall. For her Action Girls and tomboys, she's this to Kate Higgins.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: In addition to her young boy roles, she's capable of voicing other characters. Case in point, she voiced three different characters (Pearl, Ruby, and Den Mother) in Heroes of Newerth where each character have their own distinct voice and personality.
