Talking To Himself: Web Original
  • Abridged Series tend to have the main front runner creator voicing multiple actors, if he/she doesn't have a surplus of guest voices.
  • Tobuscus frequently voices multiple roles in his animated videos. In "Tobuscus Animated Christmas Adventures", he plays both himself and Santa Claus. In "Safety Torch", he plays himself and Little Timmy. Hilariously, in his Let's Play of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, he acts out the voices for all of the characters in the game.
  • Lego Pirate Misadventures has, for its first two episodes, all but a single character voiced by Mayhem. This trope is mentioned by name in the third episode, which coincidentally was the first episode to have an expanded roster for the other actor. Actually becomes noticeable when two characters voiced by Mayhem are conversing with each other, as they have fewer distinct pauses between their lines and may end up sounding a bit more like each other than normal.
  • Doug Walker is known for his roles as Ask That Guy, The Nostalgia Critic, and Chester A. Bum. In the Nostalgia Critic's review of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Doug has his beard shaved, and all three of his characters pop up in the intro with their own explanation of why they had their beard shaved (Nostalgia Critic shaved it because he made a bet that John McCain would win, That Guy shaved his because he thought the bet was about him posting his next video with the viewer responses within a week, and Chester just did it because he didn't want to be left out of the group). They quabble for a bit until NC dismisses Chester and then knocks out That Guy with a brick.
    • Almost everyone on Channel Awesome plays multiple characters. In The Spoony Experiment Noah Antwiler plays both himself (the Spoony One) and pretty much every other character that shows up: Dr. Insano, Squall Leonhart, a hobo, etc.
    • Doug also once did a commercial for PBS which was almost nothing but a giant Lampshade Hanging on his voice talent.
  • In the series There Will Be Brawl, Kirby and Meta-Knight are both voiced by Matthew Mercer.
    • ...Who also does the live acting for Ganondorf.
  • As the Vaguely Recalling JoJo series is a one-man show, the fan who produced it does all of the roles and sounds.
