1[[quoteright:350:[[Film/BackToTheFuture]]]]˛[[caption-width-right:350:Claudia Wells (top) as Jennifer Parker at the end of ''Film/BackToTheFuture''. The scene was re-shot for the beginning of the sequel with replacement Creator/ElisabethShue (bottom).]]˛˛It's time for a {{Flashback}} to a previous installment, but wait! That installment was made before you switched to TheOtherDarrin. What do you do? Why, refilm the old scene with the new actor, of course!˛˛SisterTrope to TheOtherMarty. SubTrope of {{Flashback}} and TheOtherDarrin. See also BackportedDevelopment wherein it's a character's ''personality'' in a flashback that is inconsistent with their portrayal in that previous installment.˛˛----˛!!Examples:˛˛[[foldercontrol]]˛˛[[folder:Anime and Manga]]˛* Rukia's flashback with her days of training with Kaien Shiba in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' was first seen in Episode 49. Then Kaien comes back in another form nearly 100 episodes later, This is all fine and well in the Japanese version where Creator/ToshihikoSeki reprises his role as Kaien...but Kaien's original dub voice actor, Kim Strauss, had left the show at this point. As a result, Dave Mallow was given the role (Strauss' other role, [[WolfMan Sajin Komamura]], was also recast with J.B. Blanc) and when it came time for the flashbacks, Strauss' dialogue was dubbed over by Mallow.˛* During the English dubbing of ''Anime/ExcelSaga'', Excel actress Jessica Calvello blew out her voice and had to be replaced for the show's second half. During an episode late in the series, we flash back to the first episode, but Larissa Wolcott has recorded over Calvello's lines.˛* An unusual example, partly combined with OrwellianRetcon, comes from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDCE73Stargazer''. Creator/MamoruMiyano was brought in to play Shams Couza for the third and final episode after Creator/HiroshiKamiya was injured in a car accident. The DVD release has Miyano playing Shams in all three episodes, having re-recorded Kamiya's dialog for the first two episodes as well.˛** This all became HilariousInHindsight a couple of years later thanks to ''Anime/{{Mobile Suit Gundam 00}}'', where the two actors play teammates, and Kamiya's character hates Miyano's at the start.˛* In episode 343 of ''[[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto: Shippuden]],'' [[spoiler: young Obito Uchiha's]] lines from the Kakashi Gaiden flashback episode are redubbed by Creator/MegumiHan, replacing Sosuke Komori as the character's voice. In addition, young Kakashi's lines are redubbed by Creator/MutsumiTamura.˛* Many anime which go through an ArtEvolution will redraw the flashbacks to match the updated art. For example, the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime once flashbacks to a scene with Pikachu and Ash's Caterpie. When the scene was first drawn, Caterpie had a green mouth; however, the flashback redrew Caterpie with its now-accepted yellow mouth.˛** The entire English cast was replaced in season 9 when another company took over. Thus many flashbacks have redubbed lines.˛** Incidentally, in the much-hyped episode during the N arc of ''Best Wishes'' where Charizard [[TheBusCameBack rejoins]], with the exceptions of Charizard (who used the Japanese voice both ways), Brock (who we already had for a while), and Damien (who lost his voice actress), most of the dialogue in the flashbacks were just short lines, if any. Granted, Koga retaining his original VA was nice, but between Misty just having exclamations and Jessie just yelling, the episode ended up being a MandatoryLine With The Other Darrin for some of the roles.˛** The trope also applied in the Japanese version of the above-referenced episode, due to the fact that the original episodes were in 4:3 resolution, whereas ''Best Wishes'' is in 16:9.˛* Averted ''and'' played straight in the English dub of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. There were two respective [[ClipShow flashback episodes]] in Seasons 1 and 4. In the first, Female Ranma's English actress Brigetta Dau had only done her voice for the first six episodes and Venus Terzo had been voicing her since then, but any clips from the episode that took place in Episodes 1-6 kept Brigetta's dialogue. During the second one, Richard Ian Cox had recently taken over the role of Male Ranma from Sarah Strange, and this episode featured several flashbacks to Season 1, so Male Ranma's dialogue was notably redubbed with Cox.˛* The first episode of ''Anime/TenchiMuyo''[='s=] third OVA featured a flashback episode explaining events from the previous two {{OVA}}s. However, the voice actress for Ryoko had been replaced for the new series, so the flashback clips had been dubbed over with the new voice actress, Mona Marshall.˛** Mihoshi too where Creator/RebeccaForstadt was redubbing Ellen Gerstell. ˛* The actors remained the same, but because legal issues prevented ''Anime/WeissKreuz Gluhen'' from using the original character designs, flashbacks to the previous series (and two photographs supposedly taken around that time) had to be redone with the new character designs. ˛* The ''Anime/YuGiOh'' dub replaced Mai's voice with one that was rather annoying, and when a flashback came up it too had been redubbed...although all flashbacks in the dub are always redubbed. You can tell whenever they redub a flashback of the "Exodia, Obliterate!" scene from Episode 1.˛** Strangely, in this case, it was completely unnecessary. They replaced her with a very different voice actor to the extent that the little kids watching the show could tell the difference, but Mai had undergone a FaceHeelTurn in between Seasons 3 and 4, when the voice was changed, so the Fanon explanation was that her voice changed as a result of the turn. Had 4Kids just gone along with this theory, they would have been fine (since Mai's only other appearance after she FaceHeelTurn[=s=] again was at the very end of Season 5, when she had no lines, and furthermore, 4Kids skipped over that scene in the dubbed version). They had every reason not to invoke this trope. But they insisted on redubbing the flashback to Season 1.˛* Averted with Trunks in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. Creator/AlexisTipton was taking over for Creator/LauraBailey, but flashbacks to scenes in ''[[Anime/DragonBallKai Dragon Ball Z Kai]]'' recycle Bailey's original dialogue. ˛** Played straight in the Italian dub, with Claudio Moneta, Luigi Scribani and Federico Zanandrea doing Goku, Crillin and Freezer in flashbacks instead of recycling Paolo Torrisi, Marcella Silvestri and Gianfranco Gamba's lines.˛** Played straight in the flashbacks to the redrawn ''History of Trunks'' scenes, since they're both reanimated (to keep up the lie that Future Trunks has always had blue hair) and paced differently than the original version to be faster within the episode. The English dub has Kyle Hebert voice Future Gohan, who was originally voiced by Dameon Clarke in the dub of the special. Hebert has been voicing Future Gohan in the video games he appears in for years, so this was expected.˛** Also, like ''Kai,'' kid Goku is voiced by Colleen Clinkenbeard in the English dub, who'd taken over the role at the same time as she took over Gohan from Stephanie Nadolny, in the flashbacks to the original ''Dragon Ball'' series. This was done for practical reasons, since these scenes were also reanimated from the ground up.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Comic Books]]˛* In the comic book ''Fury's Big Week'' (the official prequel to ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''), there is a brief scene showing [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] working at the Brazilian soda plant during the events of ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''. Banner is drawn to look exactly like Creator/MarkRuffalo, the actor who played him in ''The Avengers'' and all subsequent [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] movies, rather than Creator/EdwardNorton, who ''actually'' played Banner in ''The Incredible Hulk''.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]˛* In ''Film/TheGhostOfFrankenstein'', there are flashbacks with footage from the [[Film/Frankenstein1931 original 1931 film]] with Colin Clive as Henry Frankenstein, (even though the ghost of Henry is played by a different actor) yet, as Creator/LonChaneyJr played the Monster in this film, new shots of Chaney were inserted into the old footage, replacing Creator/BorisKarloff.˛* The ending scene of ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' is also the opening scene of ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII''. Since Creator/ElisabethShue had replaced Claudia Wells as Jennifer, the scene was refilmed for the sequel. The re-shot version is nearly identical, with the only difference being that Doc Brown now [[HesitationEqualsDishonesty hesitates momentarily]] before responding to Marty asking whether he and Jennifer end up as "assholes". You'll notice that Shue's and Wells's hairstyles don't match up. Sure, most people didn't notice at first because of the four-year lag in RealLife, but if you watch the two films back to back it can be pretty jarring.˛** Creator/CrispinGlover also didn't return, so in all refilmed 1955 scenes in ''Part II'', George [=McFly=] is always seen from behind (except one shot of recycled footage viewed through Marty's binoculars). Afterwards, Glover sued the producers, and this led to the Screen Actors Guild writing new rules about using stock footage of actors.˛** The SpearCarrier couple ("Who is that guy?" "That's George [=McFly=]...") also get replaced in ''Part II'''s 1955 scenes, as do most of the other 1955 extras (aside from Strickland, Lorraine's friend Babs, and all of the Starliters).˛** Speaking of 1955 extras, the character Lester ("I think he took his wallet") was played by an unnamed extra in part one, who could be seen crouching over Biff. Obviously, as Lester became a marginally AscendedExtra thanks to Marty's interference in ''Part II'', he was [[TheOtherDarrin Other Darrin'd]] for the sequel.˛** In ''Part II'', as Marty watches a documentary on Biff's rise in fame, the documentary shows a photo of Biff's ancestor Buford Tannen, who is the BigBad of ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII''... who looks differently than when we finally meet him, being shown with a BeardOfEvil instead of a mustache. WordOfGod said this was an early makeup test, and if they had time, they would've replaced that photo with one featuring his final look. [[note]]Though we only see Buford Tannen in early September of 1885. The photo of the bearded Tannen could have been taken at almost any other time in his adult life.[[/note]]˛* ''Gidget Goes Hawaiian''. The original ''Film/{{Gidget}}'' featured Creator/SandraDee in the title role, but she was replaced by Deborah Walley in the sequel. Therefore, ''Gidget Goes Hawaiian'' recreated scenes from the first film with the redheaded Walley in place of the blonde Dee.˛* Both the events that concluded ''Film/EvilDead2'' and the actress playing Linda changed in the flashback in ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness''. This also applies to the events that concluded the original ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'' in the flashback at the beginning of ''2''.˛* The beginning of ''Film/{{Desperado}}'' features a flashback to the end of ''Film/ElMariachi'', with Creator/AntonioBanderas replacing Carlos Gallardo as the mariachi. It's pretty convincing, unless you've just watched the original film and notice how much the guy playing the villain has aged.˛* The prologue to ''Film/DarkmanIITheReturnOfDurant''. Technically it's the same footage as the first movie, but Creator/LiamNeeson has been replaced with Creator/ArnoldVosloo via trick photography.˛* ''Film/GodzillaVsMegaguirus'' does an interesting take on this. The beginning uses footage from the first film, ''Gojira'', as part of the film's timeline history, but the original Godzilla is replaced with the modern suit. Justified in that Godzilla wasn't defeated by the Oxygen Destroyer in this timeline, so it is the same Godzilla in both 1954 and 2001. At least, not completely destroyed. While the opening newsreel implies that Godzilla just wandered off after attacking Tokyo, there's a line later on where a character says that "this time" they must make sure there's nothing left of Godzilla, that they can't make the same mistake again. So perhaps the idea was that he was nearly destroyed (or Oxygen Destroyed) and then regenerated.˛* The ''Film/{{Phantasm}}'' sequels all begin by partially reprising the closing scene of the previous film. Between ''Film/PhantasmII'' and ''Film/PhantasmIIILordOfTheDead'' Michael Baldwin had reclaimed his role of Mike from James Legros, so some shots from ''Film/PhantasmII'' were redone and edited into the existing footage.˛* In 2002 sequel ''Film/Firestarter2Rekindled'', Charlie [=McGee=] is played by Margeurite Moreau. When she has flashbacks to the experiments that The Shop forced her to do as a child, the scenes were specially-shot new scenes; instead of simply reusing footage of Creator/DrewBarrymore playing the 9-year-old Charlie in the original 1984 film ''Film/{{Firestarter}}''. There could be a couple of reasons for this - significantly better special effects in the intervening 18 years, or the higher picture quality of recording all-new scenes over reusing rather old footage. Or maybe it was cheaper to use a new actress than to pay Drew Barrymore for the reused footage.˛* In ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Bruce has a picture of his lost love Rachel Dawes. The picture is of Creator/MaggieGyllenhaal (''Film/TheDarkKnight'') rather than Creator/KatieHolmes (''Film/BatmanBegins'').˛* ''Film/TheFlyII'' shows video footage of Martin Brundle's father, and his mother's voice is heard from offscreen. The footage is a deleted scene from the first movie with Jeff Goldblum as Seth Brundle, but the voice is Geena Davis' replacement Saffron Henderson.˛* ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' has scenes that revisit ''Film/TheTerminator'' before TimeyWimeyBall creates a new alternate timeline. Aside from Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger (whose 1984 de-aged face is [[FakeShemp placed over a body double]]), everyone else is played by other actors -- Creator/EmiliaClarke in place of Creator/LindaHamilton as Sarah Connor, and Jai Courtney in place of Michel Biehn for Kyle Reese, etc.˛* ''Film/HowlingIIStirbaWerewolfBitch'': They don't even make [[spoiler:Karen's on-air transformation]] remotely look like the scene from the first movie. Possibly lampshaded when Ben calls the footage he is shown fake and claims the Karen in the video looks nothing like his sister.˛* ''Film/DoctorSleep'' recreates some iconic moments from ''Film/TheShining'' using recreated scenes with new actors, rather than using archive footage.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Live-Action TV]]˛* Daytime soaps, which recast regularly, often reshoot scenes with the new actors. Another method is to crop the flashback scenes to only show the consistent actors.˛** ''Series/AllMyChildren'' reshot several old scenes after Rebecca Budig was replaced by Sabine Singh as Greenlee (only to bring back Budig months later and have the same problem again.) ˛** Hilariously and deliberately averted on ''Series/OneLifeToLive'' with Blair. Initially played by Asian actress Mia Korf, she was soon recast with blonde, blue-eyed Kassie [=DePaiva=]. At the funeral of her ex-husband Asa, as she and his '''eight''' other wives flashed back to their respective weddings, she flashed back to when the ''Asian'' Blair exchanged vows with him. Cue a very confused present-day Blair whipping out a mirror to double-check what she looked like. ˛*** But played straight when Blair first returned to town. All of her flashbacks of her failed relationship with Max Holden were indeed played out with blond Blair instead of the Asian one.˛** Also very poignantly averted whenever the actor has died, often necessitating the death of the character. Numerous flashbacks clearly intended to celebrate both the character ''and'' the actor will feature other characters who have long since been recast.˛* Primetime soaps are not immune. In February 2015, ''Series/EastEnders'' did a WholeEpisodeFlashback depicting the killing of Lucy Beale ten months earlier. Her half-brother Bobby had been recast in the meantime, and changed from blond to brunette. And he was a major part of the episode [[spoiler:because he was the killer]].˛** Also occurred on ''Series/{{Dynasty}}'', in 1986, with the character of Fallon Carrington. The crew re-filmed a scene from a season 1 episode (originally featuring Pamela Sue Martin, the character's original actress) for a season 6 episode, which instead used Emma Samms (who replaced Martin, who left the show two years earlier), though still featured Wayne Northrop from the original episode.˛* The first time John Sheridan's wife Anna appeared on ''Series/BabylonFive'', she was played by Beth Toussaint. In future appearances, she was played by Melissa Gilbert, Bruce Boxleitner's actual wife; in a flashback scene to that original appearance, they reshot with Gilbert. Creator/JMichaelStraczynski suggested he'd wanted to [[OrwellianRetcon edit the original episode]], but never did.˛* In ''Series/{{Baywatch}}'' Season 2, Mitch's brother Buzz was played by Tim Thomerson, but when Buzz reappeared in Season 4, he was now played by John Beck. A flashback to a nighttime conversation from Buzz's first appearance had Thomerson replaced with Beck, but thanks to the show's notoriously lazy production values, ''the new scene took place during the day''.˛* Borderline example: In ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', Dargo's appearance changed dramatically at the end of Season 1, but the makeup guys couldn't be bothered to recreate the original look for the flashbacks.˛** It varies. Some flashbacks or "past" events shown via [[MindScrew mind frell]] ''did'' use the old makeup style.˛** Same deal with Worf in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' finale, which partially recreates the pilot.˛* ''Series/WKRPInCincinnati'' did this in a flashback to the first episode, using the new actress for the station owner's mother. The characters also acted a bit differently to support the RetCon of Venus Flytrap's name being a mistake now, rather than the original intent.˛* ''Series/TwitchCity'' initially did this when Mark [=McKinney=] took Bruce [=McCulloch=]'s role, only to later have the talk show host character refer to his "on-air cranium transplant".˛* Averted with ''Film/RidingWithDeath'', a TV movie edited from episodes of a failed 70's sci-fi series titled ''Series/GeminiMan'', which was later featured in ''Series/{{Mystery Science Theater 3000}}''. The first half of the "movie" features a flashback from the show's pilot in which Driscoll (the main character's boss) was played by Richard Dysart instead of William Sylvester (who played Driscoll in every other scene and in the series proper).˛** Also averted by ''[=MST3K=]'' itself in the ''Film/{{Hellcats}}'' episode, with Tom Servo (played by Kevin Murphy) having a flashback to an episode from the previous season (played by J. Elvis Weinstein). Even {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by Servo, saying it was before his voice changed. ˛* In Season 2 of ''Series/TheTudors'', Jane Seymour was played by Anita Briem. For Season 3 the role was recast with Creator/AnnabelleWallis, and most of the scenes with Jane from the recap of Season 2 were reshot.˛* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' refilmed an episode after Frank Costanza was recast. The effect was quite disconcerting considering the fact that the version of the character played by John Randolph was very different to the version played by Jerry Stiller.˛* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' flashed back to the events of TheMovie, but with Creator/SarahMichelleGellar replacing Kristy Swanson and Richard Riehle replacing Creator/DonaldSutherland. [[ExpandedUniverse The spinoff comic book]] used the TV likenesses of the characters for its adaptation, since [[Film/BuffyTheVampireSlayer the movie]] [[BroadStrokes is not exactly canon]].˛* When ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman''[='s=] Colleen was recast in Season 3, they re-shot the opening titles (originally scenes from Season 1) with a shot-by-shot redo using the new actress. However, various flashback episodes cropped the original Colleen out of the scenes entirely.˛* The second and third installments of the Yang/Yin trilogy on ''Series/{{Psych}}'' revolve around a picture of young Shawn with Yang. By the time the third episode of the trilogy was filmed, they had recast the "young Shawn" role due to the previous actor getting too old, so they retook the picture with the new actor for use in that episode.˛* When ''Series/{{ER}}'' recast several roles (Benton's ex's new husband, Mark's daughter), the establishing flashbacks were re-filmed with the new actor.˛* ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'' featured, inverted and ignored this trope. ˛** After Martin Balsam refused to reprise the role of Dr. Rudy Wells after one appearance in the original pilot movie, Alan Oppenheimer was cast. For the opening credits of the second and third pilot films, one of Balsam's scenes was reshot for the flashback. Yet Balsam was still visible in surgery room footage.˛** Alan Oppenheimer quit after Season 2's introductory "The Bionic Woman" two-parter. Martin E. Brooks took over the role, requiring some flashbacks in "The Return of the Bionic Woman" at the start of the next season to be reshot.˛** However, the episode "The Bionic Criminal", another sequel to an earlier Oppenheimer episode, featured so many key flashbacks featuring Oppenheimer that, for one episode only, the actor replaced Brooks as the character.˛** For syndication the first pilot movie was reedited into a two-part story. Martin Balsam was brought back to record new voiceover dialogue, however footage of Martin E Brooks as Rudy was also featured and Brooks is still featured in the opening credits. Confused yet?˛* In ''Series/{{LOST}}'', Desmond's photograph of Penny. Originally, the photograph featured Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) and who looked to be Lisa Fraser, but when Penny is introduced as a character to the show outside of the photograph, subsequent uses of the photograph have Penny's actress Sonya Walger Photoshopped in instead. The DVD version of the episode the original photograph was in, Orientation, has the photo digitally replaced with Sonya Walger's version.˛* The opening scene of the second season of ''Series/{{Leonardo}}'' is the confrontation scene from the final episode of the first season but with James Clyde replacing Alistair [=McGowan=] as Piero de'Medici.˛* In Season 2 of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'', Sara Lance resurfaces with Caity Lotz replacing Jacqueline [=MacInnes=] Wood in the flashback set aboard the Gambit. ˛* A variation in ''Series/DoctorWho'' concerning hairstyles rather than actors - the opening shot of "Robot" is a reprise of the cliffhanger at the end of "Planet of the Spiders", but it had to be rerecorded due to Elizabeth Sladen, Nicholas Courtney and Creator/TomBaker all having drastically altered their hairstyles since "Planet of the Spiders" (Sladen and Courtney's hair was now noticeably longer and Baker had grown out the relaxed hair he'd been given to make him resemble Jon Pertwee in the regeneration shot, as it was decided his [[QuirkyCurls natural hair texture]] worked better for his take on the character). The shot of the regeneration itself is recycled, but Sarah and the Brig have long hair and the Doctor's hair immediately doubles in length and volume as he sits up, justified by showing him messing up his hair with his hand immediately and obscured as best as possible by cropping his hair out in the shot and some hot ironing.˛* In season two of ''Series/MartialLaw'', [[BigBad The One]] was originally only heard via radio with the voice of Creator/TimCurry. When The One decided to come to San Francisco to deal with Sammo Law personally [[LargeHam His Hamminess]] was recast with [[TheOtherDarrin the somewhat more calorie-counting Christopher Neame]], and the "Previously On ''Martial Law''" recaps that featured Curry's voice were redubbed with Neame's.˛* The original pilot of ''Series/GilligansIsland'' featured a different actor playing the Professor, a character named Ginger who bears no resemblance to the Ginger featured in the rest of the show and played by a different actor, and a character named Bunny in place of Mary-Ann. After re-casting/re-writing these roles, the producers decided that rather than re-shoot the pilot, they might as well just go on to episode two. In the first season's ChristmasSpecial, the castaways remember their first days on the island, which uses footage from the pilot in scenes with just Gilligan, the Skipper, Mr. Howell and/or Mrs. Howell, but new footage for scenes with the Professor, Ginger, and Mary-Ann.˛* In ''Series/TheThornBirds'' midquel ''The Missing Years'', Father Ralph flashes back to the one of the original series most iconic moments--Meggie's GrandStaircaseEntrance at Mary Carson's birthday party. However, as every actor in the original film has been replaced for the new one, the scene does not feature Rachel Ward, but Amanda Donohoe.˛* ''Series/TheWaltons'' used a unique variant: using cuts from the made for TV movie ''The Homecoming'', which featured the same child actors, but replacing the footage of the adults with new footage featuring the series actors.˛* In ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'', when Kim Taylor (now Kim Tanaka) was reintroduced after 32 years, her relationship with Scott Robinson was brought up when her son found yearbook photos of the two. The Scott pictured was Jason Donovan, who replaced Darius Perkins a year after Kim's departure.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Puppet Shows]]˛* Subverted -- to fairly heartbreaking effect -- in the ''Series/SesameStreet'' song "Things That I Remember." The song, sung by Ernie (performed here by Steve Whitmire and formerly by the late Creator/JimHenson) and Bert (then Frank Oz), features flashbacks to classic Ernie and Bert sketches with Henson and Oz as the duo.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Video Games]]˛* An interesting take in ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones'' with Kaileena, who appeared previously in ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin'', looking a lot less Middle Eastern and showing a lot more cleavage. The intro of ''The Two Thrones'' takes up some clips from the ending scene of ''Warrior Within'', but with the new Kaileena in it (who doesn't look like an exotic dancer this time).˛* This is somewhat common in the English dub of ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'':˛** Roxas's dreams (Sora's memories) in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' used the new ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''-cameo voice cast, with the exception of Steve Burton as Cloud. Most egregiously, in Aerith's case, Mandy Moore's soft voice is replaced with Mena Suvari's hazy stoner voice.˛** Billy Zane's voice as Ansem[[spoiler:/Xehanort's Heartless]] was also redubbed with Richard Epcar. This was done to match up with the new BigBad, Xemnas (Paul St. Peter). Odd because despite the two of them [[spoiler: being technically the same guy]] they are also, in fact, two different characters.˛** Very brief, but a small flashback from ''Kingdom Hearts I'' in ''Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days'' featuring Kairi (the "Be sure to bring it back to me!" scene) was also redubbed with Alyson Stoner. The clip is particularly jarring because Hayden Panettiere's version of the line was sarcastic, while Stoner's version is more serious.˛*** Depending on how you look at it, it could be FridgeBrilliance: [[spoiler: Since it's a memory of Sora's, it could mean he took the promise very seriously, so he remembers her as being serious too.]]˛** Another flashback that's more like a case of AnotherSideAnotherStory in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts02BirthBySleepAFragmentaryPassage'' has Mickey's quote [[spoiler:"Now, Sora! Lets close this door for good!"]], originally provided by Creator/WayneAllwine, redubbed by Bret Iwan.˛* The tutorial in the Season 2 of ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' is the opening scene of the first episode of Season 1. As Max's voice actor had changed since then, Max's voice clips were rerecorded with the new actor.˛* ''[[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Mega Man Battle Network 5]]'' manages to do this in a visual manner with a town. Lan's hometown of ACDC had been identical in the first three games of the series (the only major differences being which rooms and buildings were accessible), but the map changed in ''Battle Network 4''. Flashbacks in ''Battle Network 5'' from long before the events of the first game show the town exactly as it appears from ''Battle Network 4'' onwards.˛* ''VideoGame/MetalGear'':˛** The flashbacks in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' were made up of about half-and-half dialogue from the UsefulNotes/PlayStation version of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', and the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube remake (''The Twin Snakes''). The dialogue from ''The Twin Snakes'' was used for characters who had their accents changed (such as Naomi Hunter's Ivy League accent and Mei Ling's pseudo-Chinese accent being dropped for conventional American ones) and the recasting of Creator/RobPaulsen as Gray Fox instead of the original's Greg Eagles. This was a non-issue in the Japanese version due to [[AnimeAccentAbsence the lack of accents]] in the Japanese versions and the fact that ''The Twin Snakes'' never had a Japanese dub (the Japanese version featured subtitled English dialogue), meaning that all the voice clips from the original ''Metal Gear Solid'' used in the Japanese version of ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' are purely from the original [=PlayStation=] version.˛** After this, it was odd when it was averted (after a fashion) in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVGroundZeroes''[='=]s "Déjà Vu" storyline, in which Kazuhira Miller's [[BadBadActing horrible impersonations]] are clearly based on the [=PlayStation=] voice cast. He affects Greg Eagles's distinctive accent and delivery when warning Snake about the mines, and performs Snake's line from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' in a clear imitation of Creator/DavidHayter's voice (when Snake had been recast with Creator/KieferSutherland in ''Ground Zeroes''). He also performs Naomi and Psycho Mantis with the accents they had in the [=PS1=] version which were removed in ''The Twin Snakes'', and in the quiz at the end he performs Ocelot with the gravellier tone that he'd had in he original.˛* Happens a few times in ''[[VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} Xenosaga Episode II]]'', with both the voice cast ''and'' the character models.˛* Similarly, in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem'', all flashbacks to ''VideoGame/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight'' use the new character models. It's particularly noticable with [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Caeda/Shiida]], who gets a lot of them.˛* Voice actress example in ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'': all of Kerrigan's lines in the [[spoiler: Battle of Tarsonis]] cutscene from the original, as recorded by the [[spoiler: salvaged Confederate AI]], were re-recorded by TriciaHelfer, as opposed to Glynnis Campbell who had provided the original voice; the other characters have kept their actors (or died, in Duke's case), and don't need changing.˛* In the ''VideoGame/SyphonFilter'' series, in addition to Mara Aramov's appearance changing with her voice actors, her appearance also changed in the flashbacks of the third game.˛* Happens somewhat regularly in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', in terms of spoken dialogue, owing to the original voice actors from the [=RTS=]es not being hired to reprise their role in the MMO. The finest example of this is ''The Culling of Stratholme'', a [[TimeyWimeyBall temporal flashback dungeon]] [[NostalgiaLevel that recreates an earlier RTS mission]]. All of Arthas' lines were lifted directly from ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', but rerecorded by the new voice artist.˛* ''[[VideoGame/SpaceChannel5 Space Channel 5: Part 2]]''[='s=] intro shows several scenes from the original ''Space Channel 5''. The dialogue in these scenes has been redone by the new voice cast. (Only applies to the English version, as the Japanese version used the same cast for both games.)˛* Any flashback of a scene previously depicted in ''[[=.hack//Roots=]]'', in the ''[[VideoGame/DotHackGU .hack//G.U.]]'' games, is a case of this; the anime was dubbed in Canada, while the games were dubbed in California.˛* Averted in ''Wesker's Report'', a fictional documentary that served as an in-universe retrospective of the first three ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' titles. The documentary is narrated by Richard Waugh, Wesker's voice actor from ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica Code: Veronica]]'', but the footage taken from [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil the first game]] still has Wesker voiced by his original actor.˛* Played with in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears'' as flashbacks/events that take place before the game use the original Super Nintendo character models and sprites.˛* Combining with with a PlayerPunch WhamLine, ''VideoGame/MafiaII'' sees one of its missions [[spoiler:revisit the DownerEnding of the original ''VideoGame/MafiaTheCityOfLostHeaven'' with the death of Tommy Angelo. In the original game, the PreMortemOneLiner was voiced by Bill Buell. The thing that makes it a PlayerPunch WhamLine? The line in ''Mafia II'' was said by the Creator/RickPasqualone-voiced Vito Scarletta, who is the protagonist of that game, meaning this time around, the player's been playing as one of Tommy's killers all along!]]˛* ''VideoGame/GodOfWarPS4'' has a sequence where Kratos passes through [[Myth/NorseMythology Helheim]] and is confronted by visions of his past. Kratos' dialog in these scenes consists of lines from the older ''God of War'' games but newly recorded by Christopher Judge, as opposed to simply re-using old clips of his original actor TC Carson.˛* At the start of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'', there was a glimpse of [[spoiler:Isaac's dead girlfriend, Nicole, right before she commited suicide. Nicole's dialogue and appearance was changed based on her new actress, Tanya Clarke, who was previously portrayed by Iyari Limon.]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Web Animation]]˛* ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'' contains a flashback to Volume 2 of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}''. Ren is voiced by his Volume 3 actor Neath Oum, who replaced his brother Creator/MontyOum upon the latter's passing.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Web Original]]˛* ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'', in terms of settings: in real life, James Rolfe presumably moved into a family house with his wife, so the room where he does his reviews switched from an apartment to a basement. in one episode, Kyle Justin guest stars, and there are flashbacks of him writing down parts of the AVGN's rants hiding behind the couch. The rants in question came from reviews filmed in the old apartment, but you can clearly see that it's the basement that Kyle is in.˛* ''WebVideo/SomeJerkWithACamera'' parodied the ''Back To The Future'' example once by re-recording his encounter with Music/TheGreatLukeSki, replacing the puppet with [[spoiler:the same puppet, but wearing an Elisabeth Shue mask]].˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder:Western Animation]]˛* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' clip show "Best Day Ever" features clips from older episodes dubbed with the show's then-current voice actors.˛* In the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' episode "The Western Air Temple", there's a flashback scene showing Zuko and Iroh a few weeks after their banishment, searching the temple to see if it's where the Avatar has been hiding. Iroh's voice actor had to be replaced during the second season, as Creator/{{Mako}} Iwamatsu [[AuthorExistenceFailure passed away]]. Hearing the new voice come out in a scene set pre-S2 was very jarring for some fans.˛* In the ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' episode "And Then There Was Ben", the scene from [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}} the original series]] where the 10-year old Ben found the Omnitrix is repeated. The major difference is that Heatblast is voiced by Creator/DavidKaye (His ''Omniverse'' voice actor), rather than his original voice actor, Creator/SteveBlum. Even Ben's dialogue is rerecorded by his original voice actress, which is odd since for one, they had Steve Blum as Vilgax in literally the same episode and two, they could've just ripped the audio out of the original episode and used it with the new animation.˛* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Chaotic}}'' season finale episode before M'arrilion Invasion ended with a {{Cliffhanger}} where hero Tom is accused of cheating and flees to Perim before an investigation can be launched. M'arrilion Invasion sported a completely different art style, and the "Last Time on ''Chaotic''" segment at the beginning was done in the new style. (No change in voice actors, though, which probably just made it more surreal.)˛* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'': In the LowerDeckEpisode "The Big Scoop", which is "A Wish Too Far" from Chester's and A.J.'s perspective, they had to reanimate some scenes with the two boys. This was because in "A Wish Too Far" the original voice actors were Frankie Muniz and Haneef Ibrahim, but by this point in the series run Creator/JasonMarsden was the now the voice of Chester and Gary Leroi Gray was the voice of A.J. If one compares the two episodes, the difference between the voices can be pretty jarring.˛* Averted and then some with Meg on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Two episodes, "Back to the Pilot" and "Yug Ylimaf" revisited the show's first season, but not only did they continue to use Creator/LaceyChabert's dialogue rather than Mila Kunis, but they even had Chabert return to record ''new'' dialogue as well. The latter episode even ''lampshades'' this. Subverted in the episode "Griffin Winter Games", as even though Meg claims she's been training for the Olympic Biathlon since she was voiced by Lacey Chabert, she was actually voiced by Creator/MaeWhitman, who plays the actual Lacey Chabert later in the episode.˛* ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack: The Series'' has a flashback to the end of the first movie in the episode that features Edgar's brother Edwin. It'd be really awkward to flash back to a live-action movie in an animated series, so it was an animated version of it, with the series' voice actors. Although it's very heavily implied the the Movies as we know them are fictional accounts of the real events of the show. So this may or may not be a true example.˛** Although, ironically, Vincent D'Onofrio, who played Edgar in the movie, voiced all of Edgar's Bug relatives on the animated series.˛* Michelle, Fry's ex-girlfriend in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' was voiced by Creator/KathSoucie in her first appearance. In later episodes she is voiced by Creator/SarahSilverman. When Fry re-lives her scene from the first episode in a dream sequence in the episode "Game of Tones", her single line has been dubbed over by Silverman.˛* Happens in ''Beforel Orel'', in which Joe Unger plays Arthur Puppington, while [[DescendedCreator Dino Stamatopoulos]] played him in the ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' episode "Passing." Dino actually redubbed his line so Arthur now has Unger's accent.˛* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3'': Near the end of its "run", Rainbow Dash had a voice swap (from Creator/VenusTerzo to Creator/AnnaCummer); and when "Rainbow Dash's Special Day", a ClipShow of the character with scenes from the previous movies, was released, Cummer redubbed all of Terzo's lines, thus making this ''Flashback with the Other Darrin: The Movie''.˛* At least one ''ComicStrip/{{Popeye}}'' ClipShow had the clips from the first few cartoons redubbed with the then-current actors.˛* A flashback episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'' showed scenes from Season 1, but replace any of Melissa Raccoon's speaking parts with her then-current voice actress, Susan Roman (Linda Feige was the first actress to portray Melissa on the series).˛** This is averted with Pig One in season 5's "The Evergreen Election!". Because most of the flashbacks were from season 4, Nick Nichols' speaking parts for him were used. (Keith Hampshire was Nichols' successor.)˛* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot''. During the Season 4 flashbacks, Bob has his Season 1 voice, while outside the flashbacks Bob has his Season 3 voice. This is because Bob's original voice actor became available again for Season 4 and the writers wanted a justifiable way to get him back in the role. The in-universe explanation for this is that the Web damaged Bob's voice.˛* Madelyn Spaulding was still voiced by her original actress when she made her second appearance in ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', but had a [[YouDontLookLikeYou different character design]]. A flashback to her original appearance had Static in his Season Two outfit, but a younger version of "new" Madelyn, rather than original Madelyn.˛* Zigzagged in the series finale of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': Aku's broadcast is a recreation of the original opening narration using the original audio of the late Creator/{{Mako}} Iwamatsu's performance, with Greg Baldwin seamlessly jumping in once those lines are finished. However, the final portion of [[spoiler:the original battle in the past whence Jack returns to]] is recreated using Baldwin's voice for Aku.˛* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'': The Season 4 episode "Partners" flashed back to the origin scene of the Scorpion, but with his second voice actor, Richard Moll, dubbing over Scorpion's original actor, Martin Landau.˛* Averted in the "Lessons in Love" episode of ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'', after [[AlphaBitch Kimmy]] comes over to the Lunis house, there's a flashback to "Showdown at Sherman High." It's the first episode where Kimmy is voiced by Creator/KariWahlgren, but the flashback still has her voice as performed by Cassie Scerbo.˛* In ''[[WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie The Pooh and Christmas Too!]]'', Christopher Robin was voiced by Edan Gross. When the special was presented as a flashback in the DirectToVideo movie ''A Very Merry Pooh Year'', Christopher Robin's lines were redubbed by William Green. Oddly averted with Tigger, as Creator/PaulWinchell's Tigger lines from ''Christmas Too'' were not redubbed by Creator/JimCummings.˛** As part of getting kids interested in Pooh after the new film, Disney released some classic Pooh movie clips under the title "The Mini Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh." Most of the dialogue was redubbed by the current voice actors (except Kristen Anderson-Lopez for some reason). It's barely noticeable with Jim Cummings as Pooh and Travis Oates as Piglet, but very noticeable with the other voice actors. However, Roo kept his original voice in at least one clip from "The Tigger Movie." Christopher Robin kept Bruce Reitherman's singing voice (although all the speaking was still done by Jack Boultier) in one clip. Piglet and Rabbit also kept John Fiedler and Ken Sansom's voices in most clips from ''Piglet's Big Movie'', and Gopher's voice hasn't been redubbed, probably because there currently isn't anyone who does his voice (which is odd because Gopher's previous actor, Michael Gough[[note]]not to be confused with the late English actor[[/note]], is still alive and doing voice acting).˛* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' episode "The Name", when Gumball's SuperPoweredEvilSide attempts a SplitPersonalityTakeover, he starts {{Internal Retcon}}ning Gumball's memories. One of them is from the season 1 episode "The Curse", and the voice of Gumball's first VA Logan Grove is redubbed with that of his second VA Jacob Hopkins.˛* A WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes sing-along video features several old scenes with Creator/BillyWest and Creator/JoeAlaskey dubbing over Creator/MelBlanc's original dialogue.˛* The ''[[WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine Thomas & Friends]]'' episode "Sidney Sings" uses a flashback from "The Missing Christmas Declarations" and redubbing both Percy's voices. The Japanese dub did this with Sidney's voice.˛* Averted in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' episode "Blast from the Past," which was a clip show flashing back to events of the first season. For the new material, Krang's regular voice actor Pat Fraley was unavailable and Townsend Coleman was filling in, but the clips used the original audio which included Fraley's dialogue as Krang.˛* The ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' episode "Lone Rat and Cubs" is a WholeEpisodeFlashback where the framing sequence takes place before the first episode. Creator/SethGreen still voices Leonardo in it rather than Jason Biggs or Dominic Catrambone (who filled in for Leo's voice actor for the rest of Season 2 after Biggs was fired), even though it takes place before the throat injury Leo receives that justified Green taking over as Leo's voice.˛* Averted and played straight in the Italian dub of a pair of Season 3 episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'': In the episodes "Garage Sale" and "Bottle Episode" the flashbacks featuring songs keep the original audio featuring Mino Caprio as Cyborg, while the non-singing ones are redubbed with Luigi Ferraro's voice.˛* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnoldTheJungleMovie'', while Helga is searching through her video collection of Arnold's good deeds, a reanimated version of a scene from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' episode "Field Trip" appears, complete with Arnold's voice actor for the movie, Mason Vale Cotton.˛* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory4'' begins with a flashback between the second and third films, with Slinky Dog voiced by his current actor Blake Clark as opposed to the late Jim Varney.˛[[/folder]]˛----
