!!Tropes associated with Steve Staley:
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: Most of the characters he voices are grumpy and/or arrogant. And often SHORT.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Banagher]] really fits this one.
** As does Mezumaru. He isn't exactly known for playing TheDitz...
* RelationshipVoiceActor: With Creator/StephanieSheh several times as the cocky/grumpy character type that he plays gets soften up by her optimistic character (Neji to Hinata in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Hitsugaya to Orihime in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Soushi to Maya in ''Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor'', and Takeo to Hisako in ''Anime/MarvelAnime''). Somewhat subverted with a ''double'' dose of PlayingAgainstType in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Gundam Unicorn]]'' as [[DoggedNiceGuy Banagher]] to Sheh's [[DefrostingIceQueen Audrey Burne]]
** With Creator/KyleHebert as well.
* SpiritualSuccessor: Considering the similar vocal ranges he can pull off, he could be considered the "successor" of Creator/YuriLowenthal particularly in non-union dubs.
