Ah! My Goddess
Hey, It's That Voice!: In The Movie English dub, we have Spike Spiegel as Celestine, Sasami as Skuld, and Hild as her own daughter!!
Satoko, for whom Otaki falls, is voiced by Stephanie Sheh, doing her Hinata-style "cute timid girl" voice.
Peorth in Flights of Fancy was Belldandy in Original OVA
In Flights of Fancy, Hild is played in English by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (credited as Lucy Todd), using a voice that can be described as " The Major blatantly coming on to you".
Also, Hild's English VA voiced Urd in the OVAs.
Skuld (Kether Donahue as Annice Moriarty) is basically Zoey and Mirabelle without the accent.
Not only that, but also in the series, Tamiya and Otaki are Cobra Commander and The Shredder (respectively; the movie in turn has Rito Revolto and Jigen Daisuke instead), Sora is Cosmos, Megumi is Dawn and Peorth is the original voice of Belldandy and also the English voice of Miyuki Kobayakawa.
In The Movie, Otaki is Timmy Turner's dad.
Oh, so this is what happened to Mahoro!
Sayoko was a desert princess at one point while her cousin Toshiyuki once killed a hundred men and now fights demons for a living.
The 3rd Class Spirit watching over Megumi is actually a Super Saiyan in another life.
Senbei is none other than Griffith. In Japanese, he is Norio Wakamoto.
Lind isn't the only female warrior that Carrie Keranen has done. She was a female android and psychotic birdwatching nurse who wanted to become a god in Japan.
Professer Kakuta is Dan Green.
No Export for You: The Ah! My Goddess: Fighting Wings anniversary special DVD. Not a big loss since it's a Broad Strokes adaptation of the Lind arc anyway (but still a loss).
The Other Darrin: Kikuko Inoue was briefly replaced by Akemi Okamura as Belldandy during the first few episodes of Adventures of the Mini Goddesses while she was on maternity leave.
Due to three different dubbing studios licensing the series, this was a given in the English dubs. The original OV As went to Anim Ego, The Adventures of Mini-Goddess and The Movie were given to Geneon, the first season of the anime was received by Media Blasters, and the second season by ADV Films (both of the latter were dubbed by the same NY talent pool). Probably the worst offender to this trope would be the three minor recurring goddesses Ex, Chrono, and Ere, who's actresses would rotate every few episodes (and that's not even counting season two or the movie).
