Typecasting / Japanese Voice Actors

Go To

  • Akira Ishida plays either effeminate and/or gay male characters fairly frequently, a role usually given to female voice actors, or villains. For the former, this seems intentional, as many of his roles even look similar physically.
  • Kikuko Inoue generally plays Yamato Nadeshikos, shrill noblewomen or mothers. She has also played gruff tomboys in Saber Marionette J and the Sakura Wars series, sexy she-bitch I-no in the Guilty Gear games and the psycho Alv in Kiddy Grade.
    • Macross Frontier gets her a role as Grace O'Connor, who initially sounds like the caring mother, but things change quickly enough in the second half the series, and in Episode 18 she gets to crank out the evil, sexy voice as she smashes Sheryl's ego into tiny pieces.
    • Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO 2: The Gravity Front has her be a really creepy Shinigami who haunts the first episode's protagonist.
    • She plays kind sisterly/motherly characters so often she's even called Onee-chan (Big Sister) by her fellow seiyuu and fans.
    • Played Tsubasa Ozora in Captain Tsubasa: Road to 2002.
