Basic Trope: A character undergoes some form of Temporary Bulk Change and gets a deeper/rougher voice in the process.

  • Straight: Alice's voice deepens after she gains a significant amount of weight.
  • Exaggerated: Alice's voice becomes downright monstrous when she gains weight.
  • Downplayed: Aside from a minute difference, Alice's voice is still recognizable after gaining weight.
  • Justified: Alice's voice deepens as the result of growing thicker vocal folds after gaining weight.
  • Inverted: Alice's voice becomes lighter when she loses weight.
  • Subverted: Alice's voice seems to have gotten deeper after she gains weight, but she clears her throat and continues speaking in her normal voice.
  • Double Subverted: She then hiccups and her voice deepens again.
  • Parodied: After Alice gains weight, her voice is dubbed by James Earl Jones.
  • Deconstructed: Alice's voice change is revealed to be psychosomatic, and the result of being depressed about the weight gain.
  • Reconstructed: Alice realizes that she used to be too skinny, and she was keeping her voice artificially high. The weight gain and deeper voice were actually her natural state.
  • Zig Zagged: Alice's weight and voice both go up and down like a yo-yo.
  • Averted: Alice's voice doesn't change no matter how much her weight changes.
  • Enforced: The writers need to come up with a change in Alice's character besides just weight gain.
  • Lampshaded: ???
  • Invoked: Alice deliberately gains weight because she knows that the subsequent deepening of her voice will make her a great opera singer.
  • Exploited: Bob knows this will happen, so he tries to get Alice fired from her voice acting job as a cartoon squirrel by leaving snack cakes lying around, causing her to cheat on her diet.
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Played For Laughs: ???
