Dawn M. Bennett and her works provide examples of:
- Action Girl: The vast majority of her characters tend to be capable fighters.
- Contralto of Danger: Some of her roles has Bennett deepen her vocals to add some menace or authority from her characters. The same case occurs when she's singing rock music.
- I Don't Know Mortal Kombat: For a while, she admitted to not being very good at playing Lilac, the character she voiced in Freedom Planet. Thankfully, she got a lot better with many panel appearances with Galaxy Trail.
- The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Despite her work as a voice actress in her own right, she confessed in a stream with Some Call Me Johnny that she has a hard time not fangirling with some of the veterans at Funimation.
- Name's the Same: Dawn is often misattributed as the voice of Germaine in Neurotically Yours, who is voiced by a completely different Dawn Bennett.
- Nice Girl: Many of her characters tend to be sweet girls.
- Old Shame: A downplayed example, but she's claimed that if there was anything about her work as Lilac she could re-record, it would be the character's screams when she was captured by Lord Brevon.
- Promoted Fanboy: She grew up loving Dragon Ball during their youth, and even voiced a one-off role (Fairy C) during Super's early Funimation days. That being said, she also really likes the The Incredible Hulk for the same amount of time. Once the Universe Survival Saga dub rolled around, she managed to snag up Kale, a role that combined both her interests into one. So much that she commissioned a convention art print combining both ideas into a Dragon Ball-inspired homage to Hulk's debut comic cover.
