!!Tropes related to Kira Buckland:
* BilingualBonus: She's fluent in both English and Japanese.
* FanConvention: Before her career in voicework, Kira was one of a small group of students who started the Senshi-Con Anime Convention in Anchorage, Alaska - thus why she's a regular guest at that convention.
* GenkiGirl: A large number of her characters can fit into this in both anime, video games, and web animation. See PigeonholedVoiceActor below.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: According to her, she's typecast into [[https://twitter.com/rinachan/status/263201026121814016 hyper young girls]].
** With her PlayingAgainstType as [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 Hiyoko Saionji]], this led her to another forte, CuteAndPsycho girls, even borderline {{Yandere}}.
* PlayingAgainstType:
** [[Manga/BlueExorcist Izumo]] is more of {{Tsundere}} IceQueen who serves as a [[RedOniBlueOni blue oni]] to many characters.
** [[LightNovel/AccelWorld Kuroyukihime]] has a much more serious personality in contrast to the other characters she voiced.
** She's also earned another niche of fans for voicing [[TheBully Vriska]] in a number of Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} comic dubs.
** [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 Hiyoko Saionji]], a strong case of FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon, may be one of her meanest characters yet.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfZestiria'''s Edna definitely counts as this, being apathetic and taciturn.
** In third season of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', ''S'', she plays Mimete, one of the villains of that season.
* PromotedFangirl[=/=]OneOfUs: Anime fan, video game fan, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic brony]], Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}, Website/{{Newgrounds}} voice actress, and [[BilingualBonus fluent in and majors in Japanese]]. Oh, also appears in [[WebAnimation/FiftyPercentOff abridged series]].
** She's also a fan of ''Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular'' anime series and in [[http://arachnidsgrip.co.vu/post/59179703331/what-do-you-think-about-watamote-if-given-the-chance her tumblr blog post]], she stated that she would love to voice the main character, Tomoko Kuroki, if given the chance.
** She's a big fan of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', uses pictures of Jolyne Cujoh as her Twitter icon, cosplays as Jolyne, and voices her on a [[http://jojos-voiced-adventure.tumblr.com/ fan blog]].
** She has said several times that voice actress Jessica Straus is a huge inspiration to her. In return, Jessica has said she was impressed with Kira's voice work and skill after seeing her perform a parody song of Ke$ha's song Tik Tok as Juri Han, a character Jessica plays. They eventually met for the first time while recording for ''Anime/AccelWorld'' and they even follow each other on Twitter.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: Worked alongside with many of the newer voice actors (Creator/ChristineMarieCabanos, Creator/CristinaValenzuela, Creator/SarahWilliams, Creator/XantheHuynh, Creator/ShelbyLindley, Creator/LaurenLanda, Creator/EdwynTiong) and even the top veteran ones (Creator/JohnnyYongBosch, Creator/KyleHebert, Creator/CassandraLee).
* SpiritualSuccessor: To Creator/WendeeLee, as they both have been known to be typecast as the [[GenkiGirl energetic girl]] [[note]]More or less lampshaded in [[https://twitter.com/rinachan/status/720816931465375744 this tweet]] where she mentioned that Wendee Lee was a large inspiration for entering voice acting[[/note]]. She is also considered to be the successor of both Creator/KateHiggins, Creator/MelissaFahn and Creator/CarrieSavage due to their similar vocal range and typecasting (especially the latter as Kira took over one of Carrie's [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} older roles]]).
* StarMakingRole: While she's highly recognizable within the Website/{{Newgrounds}} community, her roles as [[Manga/BlueExorcist Izumo Kamiki]], [[Anime/RinneNoLagrange Madoka]], [[VideoGame/MugenSouls Chou Chou]], helped grant her some recognition among the anime fans.
** [[LightNovel/AccelWorld Kuroyukihime]] propelled her to fame among the anime fanbase.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Mocha lattes.
* WomanOfAThousandVoices: If voicing '''all''' of Chou Chou's personalities is any indicator.
