** ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Re:Chain of Memories]]'' has a slight variant. Sora is supposed to be the same age as he was in ''Kingdom Hearts I''. But since Creator/HaleyJoelOsment hit puberty and recorded for the remake ''after'' doing ''Kingdom Hearts II'', Sora instead sounds the way he does in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', albeit in a slightly higher pitch.

* In "Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie" we have the villain Cocknocker a chubby man in a blue costume with "AnimeHair" who sounds like Bubbles from ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', lampshaded by ''Creator/KevinSmith'' who says he hired ''Creator/TaraStrong'' to voice him to subvert viewers who expected to hear ''Creator/MarkHamill'' who played him in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'', and to please the brony fanbase.

This trope is about when those expectations don't match up; e.g., when the muscular man has the sultry voice, The Vamp has the childish voice, and the child has the deep voice.

This trope is generally played for comedy, since the idea of a squeaky voice from a big person or a deep voice from a small person is generally seen as absurd. For better or for worse, this can sometimes come about by chance, depending on how casting in a voiced work goes. It also can occur because [[PhenotypeStereotype people tend to expect all the inhabitants of a given country to look basically the same]], so hearing, say, a British accent and then realizing it's issuing from the mouth of an ethnically Chinese person can be quite a shock. Of course, after a bit, [[CantUnHearIt you'll have trouble hearing that character with any other kind of voice except their own.]]

CuteButCacophonic is a subtrope of this, specifically referring to when "an extremely cute and/or tiny animal turns out to have a surprisingly loud cry." InstantSoprano, another subtrope, occurs when this trope arises in response to a GroinAttack. This trope also could be the result from an InopportuneVoiceCracking. Not to be confused with LarynxDissonance, which involves an actor attempting to impersonate their opposite gender, or LyricalDissonance, which involves song lyrics.

* Bud Light once had a [=TV=] ad where a guy was being introduced to his biker friend's sister. He was nervous because he figured she would sound normal but look like the biker in drag, but instead she was a BlondeBombshell with a voice made of cigars and shrapnel.

* ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' was the first ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' series where all the {{Mons}} (save Beelzemon because EvilIsCool) keep the same voice from [[PowerLevels one form to the next]], resulting in a KnightInShiningArmour, a HumongousMecha, and a {{Miko}} sounding like a RidiculouslyCuteCritter or the preteens [[FusionDance they've merged with]]. Though since [[CunningLikeAFox Renamon]] always had a rather adultish voice and [[AxCrazy Cyberdramon]] was already at the Ultimate level, it only affected [[ChildrenAreInnocent Guilmon]] and [[DeadpanSnarker Terriermon]], and all the voices still fit their characterization.
** It's really bad in their debut appearances, when the FusionDance characters really ''aren't'' portrayed with the same characterization as their components. Day-one Gallantmon's bombastic speeches set new world records for {{Narm}} when coming from a child and his even-more-childlike dragon partner.

** Averted in any English dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', where the grown up Goku sounds manly all right but he still acts like a child. The other members of his family also received different voice actors, always females as children and males as adults; Bardock was given a BadassBaritone.
** Also averted in the Latin-American dub, where child!Goku is voiced by a female voice actress and teen/adult!Goku by a male one. Said male VA (Creator/MarioCastaneda) sounds like a playful young man most of the time, until it's time to get serious and he goes borderline BadassBaritone. Also averted in the Brazilian dub, where basically the same happen.

* It was never adapted in the anime, but one chapter of ''Manga/LovelyComplex'' has the cute {{transgender}} GirlyGirl Seiko's voice completely break (pictured above). She said it began deepening in middle school but she could still pass as feminine. The other characters describe it as a masculine, man's voice which causes her to detransition for several chapters. Eventually her voice goes back to normal.
* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaReflection'', Chrono has his adult appearance from the post TimeSkip seasons (in keeping with information in supplementary material that he went through a growth spurt soon after second season), but is voiced by Creator/MikakoTakahashi (his child voice actress) rather than Creator/TomokazuSugita (his adult voice actor).
* Dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' keeps their voices regardless of which form they're in, which means there are times where a young woman's voice will be coming out of a two story tall dragon.

Instead [[Creator/AyaHisakawa her]] [[Creator/HilaryHaag voice]] is extremely soft, and she sounds almost like a little girl in a young woman's body. This heavily underlines her personality as a ruthless assassin who is extremely sheltered in every aspect of life outside her work.

** Pica of the Donquixote Pirates is a [[TopHeavyGuy top heavy]] [[RatedMForManly mountain of a man]] (with [[ShouldersOfDoom spiked shoulders]], to boot), but he has a very high voice given by Creator/YujiMitsuya ("squeaky" is NotHyperbole, he literally sounds like a dog toy). He's an interesting example, because unlike the others mentioned above, characters actually [[LampshadeHanging comment on how ridiculous he sounds]]. However, he's ''extremely'' sensitive about it and [[BerserkButton was willing to bury a grunt alive for laughing at his voice]]. Needless to say the Straw Hats (Luffy and Zoro) proceed to mock him for it repeatably.

* An InUniverse example is mentioned as part of the backstory for ''LightNovel/Overlord2012''. Outside of the in-universe MMO, Bukubukuchagama was a professional {{Eroge}} voice actress, well-known for playing [[NoYay little girls]], and used them same voice online... where her character was a level 100 gelatinous cube that typically had the fully-detailed half-digested remains of previous victims floating around in it. Ainz remembers the only time her voice and mannerisms remotely matched her online appearance was when she got pissed off at her brother Peroronchino, causing her voice to tumble a few octaves.

* The movie ''Film/PitchPerfect'' actually uses this as a plot point. After Chloe [[spoiler: has her vocal nodules removed]], she can no longer sing above a G sharp, which drastically limits her solos as a soprano. However, after Aubry and Becca make amends, and all the girls go in for their hands-in battle cry, they discover that with her "[[spoiler:messed up vocal cords]]", Chloe is capable of singing bass. This revelation, in conjunction with Becca's coordination of the group, earns them the championship win. Bear in mind, this is Brittany Snow that the jarringly deep, masculine singing voice is supposed to be coming out of. This is also a BrickJoke in hindsight because at the beginning of the movie, the male commentator for the competition makes the misogynistic comment that because all-girl a capella groups don't have bass singers, they can't reasonably compete with all-boy or mixed-gender groups because their harmony will never be well-rounded enough without a bass.

This is also a BrickJoke in hindsight because because, at the beginning of the movie, the male commentator for the competition makes the misogynistic comment that because all-girl a capella groups don't have bass singers, they can't reasonably compete with all-boy or mixed-gender groups because their harmony will never be well-rounded enough without a bass.



* In ''Film/HoubaOnTheTrailOfTheMarsupilami'', Bolo (a.k.a. Little Voice) is a giant of a man with a ridiculously high-pitched voice. He's played by [[TheGiant The Great Khali]], if you wonder. When the protagonist first hears it, he thinks it's coming from a nearby dwarf, which he insults... and then Bolo emerges from the shadow, ticked off.
* Korg in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' is a huge being made of rocks. He has a deep gruff gravely voice right? Nope! He has a high-pitched and soft voice with a very unassuming Kiwi accent. This was inspired by Taika Waititi's experience with hulking but soft-voiced Maori bar bouncers in New Zealand.

** Jerry Nelson would also fit this with his gruff look, BeardOfAwesome and ''unusually'' large [[ManOfAThousandVoices vocal range]]. Nelson was actually the first voice of Elmo (before Clash became his performer), and gave the cute little red Muppet [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=57&v=zX6PqgJDI-U a deep, gravelly voice]].

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' and ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' have a situation similar to ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}.'' (Makes sense, with the same sets of ThePowersThatBe -- TOEI making the original, Saban adapting it.) In the American version, the MonsterOfTheWeek as well as major villains will sound growly or squeaky or otherwise be not-normal-human-y to better sound like they look. When watching the Japanese version, where this is often not so, it's strange when a beast of destruction or a cheesy rubber suit talks in a voice that could belong to any guy on the street -- especially if it's a bad guy you ''know'' and remember sounding the part.

* An episode of ''Veritas: The Quest'' has neo-Nazi villain [[MultiethnicName Heinrich Cordova]], who looks like a prototypical Aryan Ubermench yet speaks with a Latino accent. The first words spoken to him in said episode are "You know Heinrich, I can never get used to ''that'' accent coming out of ''that'' face." [[RealityisUnrealistic Strange as it may seem]], many German and Austrian immigrants came to South America in the early 20th century, and so there are many people in Argentina, Southern Brazil, Uruguay and to a lesser extent Paraguay and Venezuela with [[MultiethnicName Spanish or Portuguese first names but Teutonic surnames]]. In fact, there are places like Colonia Tóvar and Treze Tílias which look exactly like [[YodelLand a stereotypical Alpine village]] and the German language is still spoken.

* Very common on ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'', where all the contestants, naturally, are {{Drag Queen}}s, but in some cases a queen may look entirely convincing as a woman until they speak, at which point this trope comes into effect. Rebecca Glasscock and Tyra Sanchez are two such queens who are extremely good at presenting as female but possess contrabass voices that can be startling the first time you hear them.

* This was a big part of Ms. Brahms' character on ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' -- she is a beautiful young woman working in an up-market department store, but speaks like a working-class Cockney. One episode revolves around this -- Ms. Brahms is chosen as a spokesmodel for the store, but they have the voice of Mr. Grace's nurse dubbed over this, because her voice is more up-market. A British Lord is attracted to her and wants to meet for a date, based largely on her sexy voice. In the end he immediately goes to the nurse, even though she looks nothing like the woman in the ad.

** [[BigBad Bowser]] for some reason, actually spoke in a high, squeaky voice in the game ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' as opposed to having a more appropriate-sounding voice in the game ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. Either this, or they actually made Bowser feel out of character. Fortunately, Bowser was once again given a more appropriate-sounding voice in the game ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', which made him a more sinister character than in the past games.
** Wario and Luigi in ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' sound very odd when compared to their voices in ''Mario Kart 64'', which was released before ''Mario Party''. In ''Mario Kart 64'', Luigi sounds deeper than Mario while Wario sounds like Mario with a deeper voice and if he was mischievous munchkin. ''Mario Party'' has Luigi with a very high pitched voice that somehow is higher pitched than Mario's voice while Wario's voice sounds ''very'' gruff and deep. It turns out that Nintendo recycled the voice clips used in the Japanese version of ''Mario Party'' for Luigi and Wario, even though they had Charles Martinet voice the two of them previously in the English version. Nintendo would use Martinet to voice Luigi and Wario in all future games.

** Noctis looks like your typical {{Bishonen}} protagonist, but in the English ''Episode Duscae'' demo he has a surprisingly deep and [[GutturalGrowler raspy]] voice. This was due to the voice acting being rushed, and is averted in the game proper where his voice is younger and lighter.

Apparently she isn't aware of this due to the fact that when Stan asks if she has a cold or if something was wrong with her voice she seems genuinely hurt and asks "Why would you say that?" By the time of "The Last Mabelcorn", she seems downright proud of her unusual voice.

In the episode "[[VignetteEpisode Bottomless Pit!]]", twelve-year-old Dipper is embarrassed about his squeaky puberty voice (and the techno remixes thereof), thereof) and takes a voice-altering tonic that gives him a deep announcer voice. Dipper thinks it's awesome, but everyone else is creeped out. [[GrumpyOldMan Grunkle Stan]] drinks a similar tonic by mistake, and winds up sounding like a SassyBlackWoman.
** Though Grenda has a huge build for her age, it is obvious that she is young and female but her voice is deep and manly. Apparently Apparently, she isn't aware of this due to the fact that when Stan asks if she has a cold or if something was wrong with her voice she seems genuinely hurt and asks "Why would you say that?" By the time of "The Last Mabelcorn", she seems downright proud of her unusual voice.



** Since the series used real children to voice the child characters, it was inevitable that their voices would change. Most of them were recast when that happened (Arnold was recast ''five'' times) others weren't (Gerald, Harold, Stinky and all of the girls). Gerald, Stinky and Helga ended up possessing deep, teenaged voices in the last few seasons despite only being nine years old.
** Tish Wittenberg is a pretty blonde, but has a deep, gravelly voice befitting a 50-year-old chain smoker.

** Stormer seems like the type of woman who would be softspoken but still it's hard to imagine that cute, squeaky voice coming from her. It's even odder as her singing voice [[SingingVoiceDissonance is quite deep.]]

** The Romanian dub is guilty with this due to them trying hard to give nearly every single female character (the princesses and elders are mostly an exception to this, thankfully) the voice of a little girl, which really doesn't work with most of the ponies being most likely adults. One of the most egresious examples is in the song "At the Gala", where they chose little girls to sing the chorus, which not only heavily contrasts with the original's (and really, any other language) deeper voices that make the chorus, but it results in even grown men sounding like little girls. One of the reasons this dub is considered among the worst for the show.

* In the two-part GrandFinale of ''WesternAnimation/PeterPanAndThePirates'' "Ages Of Pan" in which Peter is tired of being a child and causes himself to age several decades at a time, when he's an adult in his thirties he still has the voice of a then 16 year old ''Creator/JasonMarsden''. As an old man Marsden uses a slower, weaker, sounding voice.
* Isabella of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' is an adorable [[ScoutOut Fireside Girl]] with exactly the voice you'd expect, until called on to announce a monster truck rally or hockey game. At that point she switches to a [[ContraltoOfDanger deeper voice]] [[CuteButCacophonic with enough volume to knock a grown man out of his seat]].

** In "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS3E1StarkRavingDad Stark Raving Dad]]", Homer is put in a mental hospital. His roommate, who claims to be Music/MichaelJackson, is in fact a very large, intimidating man... with Michael Jackson's voice. Subverted when it turns out his real voice is actually deep and gravelly. (He's actually a white, Polish-American from New Jersey, but Homer [[FailedASpotCheck fails to pick up on this important clue]], not having ever seen Michael Jackson before.) In an interesting twist, the character actually ''was'' voiced by Michael Jackson (who was surprisingly gifted as a vocal mimic). However, due to a contract dispute, he was billed as "John Jay Smith" in the credits.

* This trope came up in spades during the late 1920s transition from [[SilentMovie silent films]] to talkies, with many famous silent actors not possessing a voice that fit their prior screen image. Famous examples of silent actors in this category include (but aren't limited to) Norma Talmadge, Creator/JohnGilbert, Clara Bow, Karl Dane, and Theda Bara.
* Creator/CharlieChaplin was British and had an upper class British accent, which caused vocal dissonance for North American fans who were used to his silent work and never pictured The Little Tramp as having a foreign accent. There were even fans who questioned why there was a British narrator for his 1959 compilation film The Chaplin Revue, when the narrator was Chaplin himself.

** Ever hear a Smooth Collie bark? They've got a surprisingly high-pitched bark for such a large dog. Seriously, you'd sooner expect that bark to come out of a toy poodle. In comparison, other collie breeds, such as the Rough Colllie (Franchise/{{Lassie}}'s breed) has a bark that matches its size.
