Tropes associated with Laura Post:
- Contralto of Danger: A lot of her stern female roles have this.
- Cross-Dressing Voices: Very capable of playing young boy roles, though she is rarely cast as one.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Many of her villainess characters have deeper voices.
- Femme Fatale: Some of her roles fit. Including Rosalia, Arfoire, Ragyo, Valentine, and Ahri. The last two are subversions though.
- Pigeonholed Voice Actor: A large majority of her characters she voices are either Femme Fatale or a stern, serious type of woman. However, she's capable of voicing other kinds of characters whenever the situation calls for it. Flannery and Vendor-3 both show off a much higher vocal range that a lot of people wouldn't know Laura was capable of.
- Playing Against Type:
- Nozomi Toujou from Love Live! is a departure from the deep voices that Post typically does.
- In Fate/Apocrypha, she voices Medea in a cameo flashback, this version of Medea is the Lily version where she's the pure and innocent Nice Girl (as opposed to the Medea from Fate/stay night where she's a Femme Fatale instead).
- Relationship Voice Actor:
- Star-Making Role: For video games, either Arfoire, Ahri, or Valentine. In the anime side of things, either Ragyo Kiryuin, Diana Cavendish or Nozomi Toujou.
- Woman of a Thousand Voices: Her Heroes of Newerth Characters alone show just how much she exemplifies this trope.
