* EnforcedMethodActing: One of the examples of those suffering this before it was prohibited in anime. For a voice-practice of a sad voice, she's told to imagine the saddest moment in her life. Imagining how her grandma died, Megumi was left in tears even after the practice ended, surprising her instructor, Creator/ShigeruChiba. This scene is drawn in Megumi-Toon.
* {{Expy}}: While not voiced by her, [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Megumi Reinard]] is based on her.
** Oddly enough the closest she's gotten to play [[ReiAyanamiExpy an expy of her most famous role]] was in the dub of [[Film/PacificRim a film]] that was already a SpiritualAdaptation anyway.
* HospitalHottie: A certified nurse, she made full use of her emergency skills when one of her fans passed out in her concert.
* {{Hotblooded}}:
** Out of her entire resume, her [[GenkiGirl genki girls]] tend to be the most remembered not only because of [[StarMakingRole the roles that made her famous]], but also due to her own personality being outgoing and energetic to begin with.
** Her original career plan was to [[HospitalHottie save human lives]], and that alone requires a good sum of compassion and [[{{Determinator}} determination]] to pursue.
** Her fiery personality was what got her to her WhatCouldHaveBeen case, as she caught herself into voice acting by pure accident due to submitting a stress-release cassette tape for a voice acting school application (that she randomly caught eye from a magazine ad) of her swearing UnstoppableRage just for the hell of it because all of the medical schools she applied at the time completely rejected her. She later received admission letters from one medical school, and ''that'' voice acting school with free tuition grant, leading her [[{{Determinator}} determined]] to attend both schools at once, mainly to one, take advantage of the voice acting class she received for free, and two, to fulfill her promise towards her parents in getting her medical license.
** Hayashibara is known to have low tolerance for audience with bad manners, and would defend her cast mates if certain types of fans crossed the line in front of her face.
* PlayingAgainstType: Plays an abusive [[MyBelovedSmother smother]] in ''Anime/WolfChildrenAmeAndYuki''
* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** With Creator/KenichiOgata (Father vs. Daughter)
** With Creator/KoichiYamadera (Rose to stardom together, and reigns as King and Queen of the industry.)
*** The two made their names known through ''[[Anime/MashinHeroWataruSeries Mashin Hero Wataru]]'', became domestically famous through ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', and internationally famous through ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. The two are also officially the highest paid voice actor and actress of the Japanese voice acting industry.

* WomanOfAThousandVoices:
** This is the lady whose voice can range from [[GenkiGirl hyperactive]] to [[EmotionlessGirl emotionless]] and sometimes even the cold, harsh one. Oh? Her HotBlooded voice is also a hearing to behold.
** The comedic radio-play, ''AudioPlay/EvangelionAfterTheEnd'', really shows this off: During the play, the normally stoic and quiet Rei finally gets fed up with [[{{Jerkass}} Asuka]]'s [[UsefulNotes/{{Baka}} constant pronouncing on other people's intelligence]], and goes on an absolutely livid MotorMouth rant about it.

Her debut was playing several bit roles for the anime, ''Manga/MaisonIkkoku'' which probably led to her role as girl-type [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma]]. As of current, she stands as one of the most legendary of Japanese voice actresses in the business due to her extreme talent and resume. Just by naming ''any'' of the roles listed below alone would be a career-making milestone for a voice actress, but as a WomanOfAThousandVoices, Hayashibara has the talent and skill to win that kind of part again and again. She is such a major figure in the anime industry, that the character of Megumi Reinard in ''Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico'' was actually based on her; partly as parody and partly as tribute. She is arguably one of the few voice actresses who isn't [[PigeonholedVoiceActor set in a role]]. Her huge number of voice credits have invited comparison to Creator/MelBlanc, Creator/JuneForay, and Creator/FrankWelker in American Animation.
