[[Anime/CodeGeass I, Johnny Yong Bosch, command you to...]] '''[[LargeHam DESCRIBE ME]] [[DescribeTopicHere HERE]]!'''

[[RunningGag Happily, Your Highness!]] Born John Jay Bosch, Johnny Yong Bosch ([[FanNickname Fan Abbreviation]]: JYB) is a former ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' star (he was [[ThrowItIn a frog]]) who has since moved on to {{anime}} voice acting, starting as Vash the Stampede in ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'', and has since moved on to other lead roles. This coincidentally pitted him as the star and hero for the ONLY TWO new anime Creator/AdultSwim was running for a year and a half- this streak ended when ''Anime/CodeGeass'' completed its run in May 2009. This plus the earlier run of ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' led many to call the starting anime block "The JYB Power Hour". When combined with his role as Ichigo in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Adult Swim meant two things: shows from Williams Street, and shows starring JYB. He is the vocalist for his own band, Eyeshine. Oh, and he's an accomplished martial artist who can [[{{Badass}} kick]] [[IKnowKarate your ass]].

His Japanese vocal equivalent is Creator/MasakazuMorita, since their voices have identical ranges. His career path, on the other hand, mirrors Creator/MasayaMatsukaze. In terms of casting, he is the American equivalent to Creator/JunFukuyama, as well as being the California counterpart to Creator/SoichiroHoshi [[note]]Alongside with Creator/YuriLowenthal[[/note]], Creator/NobuhikoOkamoto, Creator/MamoruMiyano, and Creator/HiroShimono, and the western counterpart to Creator/HiroshiKamiya. His Canadian counterparts are Creator/BradSwaile, Creator/KirbyMorrow and Creator/AndrewFrancis, his Texan counterparts are Creator/ChrisPatton, Creator/ToddHaberkorn (who currently also works in L.A.), Creator/DavidMatranga, Creator/MicahSolusod, Creator/AustinTindle, and Creator/BlakeShepard, and his New York counterpart is Creator/JasonGriffith. Creator/ErikKimerer is shaping up to be his SpiritualSuccessor. His DistaffCounterpart is Creator/KarenStrassman.

-----
!![[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers It's Tropin' Time!]]
* AntiHero: Surprisingly, despite him constantly being typecasted as heroes, he's quite capable of voicing anti-heroes such as Lelouch Lamperouge .
** Mr. Bosch himself stated in his [[http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=74120855&blogId=204807209 Myspace blog]] that anti-heroes are his personal preference.
* {{Bishonen}}: He's voiced quite a few.
* ButNotTooForeign: [[http://www.halfkorean.com/?page_id=379 In an interview]], he stated that he's [[NoKoreansInJapan half-Korean]].
* CastingGag: He shares a total of six different roles with Jun Fukuyama (Albert Morcerf from ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'', Lelouch Lamperouge from ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Haruto Sakaki from ''Anime/WitchHunterRobin'', Juto from ''VideoGame/MagnaCarta'', Yukio Okumura from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'') and [[Manga/Cyborg009 Joe Shimamura]] in ''Cyborg 009 VS Devilman''.
** Johnny was the English voice of Creator/DaisukeOno in ''Manga/LuckyStar'' after the two shared the role of Itsuki.
* CrossdressingVoices: While he hasn't voiced any female characters, some of the younger boy roles he's played happened to be voiced by a woman in the Japanese dub (e.g. [[Anime/EurekaSeven Renton]] and [[VideoGame/MugenSouls Ryuto]]). In fact, the youngest character he's voiced in anime is Noby[=/=]Nobita from ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'', who happens to be 10-years old.
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: According to Johnny himself, his role as [[Anime/EurekaSeven Renton Thurston]] was considered to be the hardest role he has gotten because he was pressured to pull a higher-pitched voice for the character in a short period of time. Instead of the HeroicRROD typical for heroes that do this, the role instead helped land him into younger characters with said pitch.
* TheDanza: Johnny Yong Bosch as [[Manga/SpaceDandy Johnny]] and [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jonathan Joestar]].
* DarkerAndEdgier: Black Ranger Adam was TheCape style morality, then he did the upbeat but still angsty Vash. Then he did characters that are either [[AntiHero morally ambiguous]], [[DarkAndTroubledPast have more broken past lives]], sociopathic and/or psychopathic, or just plain sullen and stoic.
* DumbIsGood: If his character is good, he's generally not that intelligent. If his character is smart, he's generally [[ManipulativeBastard not very good]].
** Ichigo Kurosaki is an interesting aversion to this trope, because while he's got the LeeroyJenkins thing down, he's actually quite intelligent, both in school and in battle. This totally applies to Ichigo's SuperpoweredEvilSide, though.
** Yu Narukami is a complete aversion. Not only is he very smart and resourceful in battle and school, he's also the main hero. Or it's possible said smarts come from eating [[RunningGag stuff out of the fridge]].
* FakeBrit: [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Jonathan Joestar]].
* FullNameBasis: A lot of people say his full name when talking about him; even on this wiki.
** One exception was in the first few episodes of Power Rangers where he was introduced, when he was credited under John Bosch.
* TheHero: His primary forte. As he once noted in an interview, it was his "perfect Hero Voice" that landed him [[Manga/{{Trigun}} his first anime voice acting role]].
* HeroicMime: Johnny pulls this off with The Protagonist in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' and in the few instances in which he speaks, he sounds more like a Power Ranger (he calls out almost every Persona like he's saying "IT'S MORPHING TIME!"). Though in ''Arena'', he's a mime no longer and sounds quite a fair bit like Adachi. To try and fix this, Adachi sounds much raspier in ''The Animation'' while Yu sounds more neutral. Also worth noting is that Johnny is one of three voice actors to play a character in Persona 4 and not get recast at any point after (the others being Creator/YuriLowenthal as Yosuke and Creator/AmandaWinnLee as Yukiko).
* HotBlooded: Also part of his primary forte, though ironically in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', he voices Rossiu, TheSpock amongst the cast.
* KidHero: Ever since his PlayingAgainstType role of [[Anime/EurekaSeven Renton Thurston]], he's been getting ''some'' roles where he uses a higher-pitch voice that casts him into younger characters. We've got [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Emil]], [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Almaz]], [[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan Sakura Kusakabe]], [[VideoGame/FragileDreamsFarewellRuinsOfTheMoon Seto]], [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Xiba]], [[Anime/TenkaiKnights Guren]], and [[Anime/{{Doraemon}} Noby]]; they all have a higher pitched voice in stark contrast to his older characters like [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Ichigo Kurosaki]].
* LargeHam:
** Most of his voice acting makes the characters larger than life to the point of SuperlativeDubbing.
** Taken a step further in the ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'' dub. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IG_3jCkKBAU As you can see]], he not only puts the emotion to it when Yu's presented with a large beef bowl, he literally ''devours'' it.
** His performance as [[VideoGame/SengokuBasara Sanada Yukimura]] was highly praised for his dedication in [[NoIndoorVoice screaming just about every single line at the top of his lungs]].
** Let's just say that hamminess is part of his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdtFnUf5Py0 blood]].
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent:
** While he's capable of pulling off a high-pitch voice like Renton Thurston, he hadn't played any role that involved pulling off an accent. That was until:
** He's spoken in a completely different language in a dub - being [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} Izaya's]] voice actor required him to speak Russian for a few lines. It sounds near perfect compared to Izaya's original voice.
** Similarly, while still easily recognizable, he also attempted a Japanese accent in ''VideoGame/BinaryDomain'' as Kurosawa. Seeing as he'd worked a lot of anime titles in the past, it's no surprise he managed to pick this accent up quickly.
** He ends up breaking the mold again with his role as Jonathan Joestar in ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' where he spots a realistic [[FakeBrit British accent]], and has caught a lot of anime fans by surprise.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: A majority of his roles are HotBlooded [[TheHero heroes]] that tend to be very [[LargeHam hammy]].
* PlayingAgainstType:
** In addition to above mentioned roles, he's voiced a whiny ButtMonkey, Sakura Kusakabe, from ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan''.
** And as Rossiu in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Since he usually plays HotBlooded {{Large Ham}}s, you'd think the man would be right at home in a series where [[WorldOfHam more than half the cast fits that description]], but he voices one of the few characters who ''doesn't'' chew the scenery.
** And mentally unstable psychopaths such as [[LightNovel/FateZero Ryuunosuke Uryuu]], [[VideoGame/KillerIsDead Tokio]], [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline Kyouji Shinkawa]], [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Adachi]], [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasori]], and [[Anime/{{K}} Saruhiko Fushimi]].
** Fuji from ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'' is a friendly, calm, ever-smiling DudeLooksLikeALady who's voiced by a woman in the original Japanese.
** Kurosawa from ''VideoGame/BinaryDomain'', as he's not only a ByTheBookCop ReasonableAuthorityFigure, he also gave the character a Japanese accent, which surprised many people since [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent he rarely does accents in his voice work]].
** People familiar with ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' were surprised by the decision to cast him as Orga. Personality-wise, Orga's actually not too far off from his usual typecast (he's a essentially a young leader who's rough around the edges) but Creator/YoshimasaHosoya's vocal range is [[BadassBaritone noticeably lower and gruffer/huskier]] than what Johnny's known for. [[https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1084723564900196 He himself said that he'd initially auditioned for Mikazuki, and had to prepare for every IBO session in a certain way.]]
* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** Usually plays either [[TheLancer alongside]] or [[TheRival opposite]] to Creator/YuriLowenthal. [[Anime/Persona4TheAnimation And once]], ''[[ActingForTwo both]]''.
** Also worked with Creator/CrispinFreeman in many of the voice acting work, either as [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya a]] [[Manga/WolfsRain steadfast]] [[Anime/WitchHunterRobin ally]] ([[Anime/EurekaSeven or]] [[Anime/LastExile understudy]]) or [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} overly]] [[Anime/CodeGeass smug]] rival, as well as [[VideoGame/GodsEaterBurst inferior]].
** His characters also tend to get paired with those played by Creator/StephanieSheh, Creator/MichelleRuff, or Creator/LauraBailey, the first two especially so.
*** An interesting case with Stephanie Sheh and Johnny Yong Bosch in ''Anime/KillLaKill'' [[spoiler:where Johnny's character is actually an alter ego of Stephanie's character]].
** Johnny and Creator/DanSouthworth are both former PowerRangers who also did voice work together in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4'' (Johnny as Nero and Dan as Credo and Virgil) and ''VideoGame/UltimateMarvelVsCapcom3'' (Johnny as [[MegaManX Zero]] and Dan reprising his role as Vergil).
* SpiritualSuccessor: Considering his similar vocal range and typcasts, he is this to Creator/DaveWittenberg.
----
!!Tropes associated with his band:
* AlbumTitleDrop: In "Silverstar" on Tone of Echoes.
* MrFanservice: Band co-founder and drummer Maurice is this. See WalkingShirtlessScene.
* PerishingAltRockVoice: Johnny sings this way pretty often, probably because his voice has gone raspy from all the yelling he's done in doing anime voices.
* RevolvingDoorBand: While Eyeshine has some fame, the band isn't a full time gig for any of its members. As such, many members have had to leave to focus on their careers or left for personal reasons, so the band's gone through many guitarists and bassists.
* RockstarSong: "Let's Play Our Way".
* StudioChatter: Done at the beginning of "Blackout" on Red Stripes White Lights.
* TeamDad: Crossing over with PapaWolf, Johnny is definitely this. He takes very good care of his bandmates and will shed his normally easygoing demeanor if a situation could affect them or the band negatively.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Maurice nearly always plays their live shows without a shirt.
