** Even minor and unnamed characters would fall prey to this. The Fake Hakkai was voiced by Creator/JohnSwasey in Season 1 before Creator/MikeVance replaced him for reasons unknown (John was still voicing FillerVillain Zenon at the time). Also, the Merciful Goddess' messenger Egan was voiced by Creator/JarrodHuffaker before being replaced with Creator/AdamConlon.
*** A boy who assists the Sanzo party late into Season 1 was first voiced by a young Creator/CameronBautsch and was replaced by Creator/SamFoster (former ADR director Steven Foster's son) less then two episodes later.
** While none of the original actors reprised their roles for Geneon's dub of the sequel series, which was recorded at Burbank's Creator/BangZoomEntertainment, dub was mostly consistent except for a few cases:

*** A rather odd case of this would be young Sanzo/Koryuu. He was voiced by Creator/MonaMarshall in some early filler episodes, but later during the God arc the voice is done by Creator/MelaLee (who primarily voiced Yaone). Instead, Marshall is now voicing the titular God as a child, meaning that she is basically talking the child version of a character she had previously recorded for in the same season. Confusing, right? It comes full circle in Gunlock where Marshall is back to voicing young Sanzo. All in all a rather strange choice since Lee could have just as easily voiced young God instead.

** ''Reload Blast'' has Creator/DavidMatranga, Creator/GregAyres, and Creator/VicMignogna reprising their roles as Sanzo, Goku, and Kougaiji respectively, however Hakkai is now voiced by Creator/MicahSolusod (as Braden Hunt hasn't done anything since 2011) and due to the 2014 controversy that pretty much ended Creator/IllichGuardiola's career, Gojyo is now voiced by Creator/IanSinclair, and also voices his previous incarnation Kenren.

* ScheduleSlip: The series has been running since 1997 but has yet to be completed and has gone on Hiatus many times due to 1. author Kazuya Minekura is also doing another manga titled ''Wild Adapter'' and 2. her ill health which lead to her having a hysterectomy and a jaw operation to remove a tumor on her right upper jawbone!
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/VicMignogna was initially called in to audition for (and more than likely be casted for) Gojyo in the dub for Gensoumaden, but he backed down from the offer because of Gojyo's excessive use of profanity, so he instead auditioned and was cast to play Kougaiji.

** Even before the infamous English cast switch between ADV and Geneon from the first and sequel series, some actors would change in the first two seasons. Dokugakuji changed near the end of the first season from Jason Miesse to Mike [=MacRae=] and Shawn Taylor replaced Karen Coffer as the Merciful Goddess for three episodes as well. The difference for the latter was more noticeable than most since Taylor used a strong English accent that Coffer lacked.

** The Japanese side was no less immune to this trope, as the original O[=V=]As had a completely separate cast from the TV series. Creator/WataruTakagi was Sanzo, Creator/KosukeOkano was Goku, Creator/KoichiYamadera was Gojyo, Creator/YukiMatsuda was Kougaiji, Creator/TomokoIshimura was Yaone, Creator/YumiTouma was Gyokumen, Creator/MasashiSugawara was Dokugakuji, and Creator/SakuraNogawa was Lirin. They would be replaced by Creator/ToshihikoSeki, Creator/SoichiroHoshi, Creator/HiroakiHirata, Creator/TakeshiKusao, Creator/YukoMinaguchi, Creator/ShinobuSato, Creator/DaiMatsumoto, and Creator/KaoruMorota respectively. Only Creator/AkiraIshida would reprise his role as Hakkai in the TV series. Controversially, Minekura stated in an interview that enjoyed Yamadera's performance as Gojyo better.

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedFanon: Before the manga was adapted into anime, Minekura wrote up a character profile for the four main characters and jokingly "assigned" Hakkai Creator/AkiraIshida as his voice actor. Once the adaptation is made, guess who actually gets the job to voice Hakkai?

** A peculiar version goes to Hakuryu, who was voiced by Creator/KaoruMorota in the original seasons (also Lirin). The vocal effects were provided on and off by Creator/TaeOkajima and Creator/EisukeKotanizawa in Reload, but in Gunlock only Okajima provided the voice. The Japanese effects were retained in the English dub as opposed to letting an English actor/actress reddo them, like ADV's Creator/KelliCousins.

** CastingGag: However, if one looks closely, this isn't the first time that Creator/ToshihikoSeki voiced a portrayal of [[VideoGame/SaiyukiJourneyWest Xuanzang Sanzang/Genjou Sanzou in Japanese media]].
