YMMV: Troy Baker
  • Base Breaker: Although no-one (minus Twin Perfect) hates Troy or his voice work (How else would he get hired a lot?), as of 2013 some gamers are getting a bit tired of him being in most of the major AAA games of 2013 (Bioshock, The Last of Us, Saints Row, Batman: Arkham Origins, Injustice, etc). This escalated when he was announced as Pagan in Far Cry 4, where the argument got started in earnest.
    • Similarly, many people are getting upset (Mind you, not mad, just upset) that Troy has started moving completely away from most things anime. Considering the roles that got him his fame early on was Kanji Tatsumi and Yuri Lowell, both of which are extremely popular in their fanbase, and are credited as effectively putting Troy on the map as a flexible, and talented acter, it does hold some truth to it. This got even worse when it was revealed that Troy apparently will not being playing Kanji in Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Some are happy he's branching out and getting the roles he's gotten though.
    • He also did not return as Valvatorez in the Vita port of Disgaea 4, another fan favorite role of his.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Anime Crossroads 2010: Jamie Marchi, Trina Nishimura, & Troy Baker lip-sync "Bohemian Rhapsody".
    Jamie: Sometimes, magic happens!
    Troy: What the HELL just happened?
  • Discredited Meme: He used to love doing the Excalibur song, but after a few years of doing so, he really dislikes doing it and seems to think of it as annoying.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Troy was the voice of Robin in Batman: Arkham City. Even though the Robin in the game was Tim Drake, he'd mirror the original Robin, Dick Grayson, by voicing Grayson as Nightwing in Injustice: Gods Among Us.
