Michelle Ruff is a voice actor most famous for being Rukia Kuchiki
Though she's also gained plenty
of recognition as Yuki Nagato
, Yoko Littner
, Euphemia Li Britannia
, Tsukasa Hiiragi
, Crimson Viper
, Yukari Takeba
, Rita Mordio
In other words, most of her famous roles are secondary main characters
(That doesn't mean they aren't awesome though). Ruff has a wide voice range, going from emotionless
like Yuki to Hot Blooded
like Yoko to ditzy and happy
like Tsukasa. Her characters are mostly Badass
babes (or just hot babes in general).
She was awarded for "Best Voice Actress in an Anime Dub" at Anime Expo 09 for her role as Rukia

Trope associated with Michelle Ruff
- Deuteragonist: What her best well known roles fall into.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: She happens to land on these roles quite often. Example goes with Arcueid of Tsukihime, Lan of Rinne No Lagrange, Euphemia of Code Geass amongst others.
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: A lot of her characters are usually deep-voiced Badass or hot chicks such as Crimson Viper, Rukia, Nisa, Yoko, Etna. Also, as mentioned above, most her characters are deuteragonist or minor characters and rarely get lead roles.
- Relationship Voice Actor: With Tony Oliver in many, many, works.
- Woman Of A Thousand Voices: How can we not forget this. She's not only capable of a deep voice, but also softer tone for The Quiet Ones like Yuki Nagato and Anri. Or doing a higher-pitch voice for more younger characters like Cream the Rabbit and Desco; and even young boys.
- Older Than They Look: Can you believe she is now 45?
