- Animal Motif: Two of her characters, Rin Hoshizora and Lulu, are often associated with cats.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Some of her characters happen to be eccentric or very airheaded (i.e. Firis and Lulu).
- Creator's Pest: Myne from Shield Hero is her least favorite role, not only due to how difficult it was, she outright hated the character as much as the fans.
- Genki Girl: A good number her characters she voices tend to be very hyperactive. For example, Rin Hoshizora, Ryoka Narusawa, and Astolfo (though the gender's not quite the same).
- Idol Singer: Faye has voiced multiple idol characters. Most have split personalities.
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: Most of her roles are energetic or have big attitudes, sometimes with multiple personalities.
- Playing Against Type:
- Astolfo in Fate/Apocrypha, while energetic is something Faye often will voice, this is noticeable to be one of her first male roles. Not only that, Faye makes Astolfo sound way more masculine (although effeminate) to avoid Viewer Gender Confusion as opposed to her Japanese counterpart.
- In the Granblue Fantasy anime, she voices Orchis, who happens to be a Rei Ayanami Expy.
- In Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls game, she voices Mega Drive, who is calm and a Sugar-and-Ice Personality.
- In, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable, playing as Yukako Yamagishi, who is more subdued and downright terrifying whenever she's pissed.
- In, The Rising of the Shield Hero, she voices Malty Melromarc. A backstabbing bitch who has no redeeming factors whatsoever. It was jarring enough from her usual role that Faye considered it the hardest role she played and when she was asked how it feels on voicing her, her first reaction was to jokingly attempt to duck and hide behind the desk in the con to no avail.
- In KonoSuba, she voices Aqua, a Butt-Monkey.
- In Hazbin Hotel, she voices Katie Killjoy, who similar to Malty is a complete bitch with no redeeming qualities, only this time she's damned in Hell.
- Split Personality: Faye voices characters with multiple personalities. Ryoka Narusawa is equal parts Genki Girl, Emotionless Girl, and Tyrannical. Yumemi Yumemite, Ai Musujima, and Midoriko are more examples.
- Spoiled Brat: Examples are her characters Priscilla Barielle, Violet Weinberg, and Neon Nostrade. All of them were pale in comparison to Malty. And then there's Aqua...
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Many of her characters are optimistic like Firis or Astolfo.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: Aside from voicing different type of energetic girls, she can also voice calm, stoic ones, as well as deep, mature women who turn out to be badass.
