  • All-Star Cast: The Japanese, English and Latin American Spanish dubs are notorious for having many well-known voice actors in their respective casts. This is especially notorious in the Japanese and Latin American cases, as many of their voice actors are long-time veterans from basically all the time periods of their countries, some of them even dating back from the 1960s.

      • Gerardo Alonso (Raian Kure) voiced Jake Wind.
      • Dan Osorio (Jun Sekibayashi) voiced William Lake.
      • Luis Daniel Ramírez (Haruo Kono) voiced The Engineer.
    • A cross-language version of this happens between the original Japanese and the Latin American Spanish dub, as Gaolang Wongsawat's voice actors (Kenjiro Tsuda and Alejandro Orozco, respectively) are also their respective dub voices of Kylo Ren.
  • What Could Have Been: The character that would eventualy become Muteba was originaly designed as a stoic Russian systema practitioner and mercenary. However, during development, the creators felt there were too many characters out there that fit into that specific mold, so they decided to go with the Congolese sex-and-death-machine he is today due to African characters being more of a rarity in manga.

How well does it match the trope?
