Tropes that apply to Diana Torres:

  • Badass Adorable: Has voiced some.
  • The Cast Showoff: Most notably at the third episode of Bobobo, when she voices the character Kazutaka from the band SQUASH which was giving their last concert. Only Diana Torres can sing such an absurd song and make it sound awesome.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: She plays boys and girls (and other beings) with similar skill.
  • Dawson Casting: An understatment, as Diana usually plays very young characters.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Several of her characters are blondes and of the good-natured kind. Notably, Torres herself is blonde.
  • Pigeonholed Voice Actor: As said above, she often plays children, brash girls and cute critters.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Mokona in Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE- and the titular character in Hamtaro come to mind as major examples.
  • Talking to Himself: She famously dubbed both Conan and the fictionalized version of his seiyu, Minami Takayama, during the pop star episode, as both Takayama and Torres are singers.
  • Vocal Evolution: Though she is not quite a woman of 1000 voices, Diana did an awesome job voicing both the child and older version of TK Takaishi in their respective seasons of Digimon. Bear in mind that they are played respectively by a woman and a man in the original.
