Yu Yu Hakusho has a few DB alum. Miyumi Tanaka and Shigeru Chiba being the most notable. Tessho Genda played Toguro in YYH and Shu in DB. Talk about range. Ryo Horikawa played Karasu.

Mayumi Tanaka is Luffy and Toshio Furukawa is Ace in One Piece.

I literally just found out that Furuya Toru (Yamcha), Horikawa Ryo (Vegeta), and Emori Hiroko (Chiaotzu) were all in Saint Seiya. Furuya was also in Sailor Moon and Mobile Suit Gundam. The 1986 Super Mario Bros. animated movie has Furuya playing Mario, while Chiba Shigeru (Raditz and Pilaf) plays a dog who follows Mario and Luigi for their adventure, and Miyauchi Kohei (Muten Roshi) plays a bearded wizard who greets the brothers when they arrive in the Mushroom Kingdom.

Adding onto that:
Lunch (Mami Koyama) = Ophiuchus Shaina (Saint Seiya), Esmeraude (Sailor Moon R)
Tenshinhan (Hirotaka Suzuoki) = Dragon Shiryu (Saint Seiya), Bright Noa (Mobile Suit Gundam)

It all depends on which agency represents the Animes. Apparently, all of these shows had Aoni Production representing them.

And how about the Japanese versions of Hideo Kojima's games since 1992's PC Engine CD version of Snatcher? Those have voice actors from Aoni Production, too.

I didn't watch much of it, but Ghost Sweeper Mikami stars Hiromi Tsuru and Ryo Horikawa.

In stuff I've seen more of, Masako Nozawa has been both a grandmother and multiple fairies in Precure. Takeshi Kusao likewise has been a fairy and love interest in Precure. Caulifla is Cure Passion. Kale is Cure White (Nozawa's character's granddaughter no less! Which is why episode 100 of Super was a little surreal to me). Brianne is Cure Honey.

Hakaba Kitaro that I watched a little while back has Masako Nozawa, Bin Shimada, Banjou Ginga, Daisuke Gouri, Shoko Nakagawa, and Eiji Takamoto.

The big ones in Sailor Moon are Tuxedo Yamcha, Sailor Videl (Saturn), and a one off where "Vegeta's" a fashion designer.

Vegeta: Oh? And who's that? Your secret weapon?

Also Piccolo's voice actor plays Hawk's Eye in SuperS.

This is true! That's the same season Horikawa's episode is from.

The new Gegege no Kitaro has Masako Nozawa (Goku), Mayumi Tanaka (Kuririn), Toshio Furukawa (Piccolo), Bin Shimada (Broly) and Kappei_Yamaguchi (dubbing voice of Goku in DragonBall Evolution, lol)
Ironic too, since it's the show that airs in Super's former time slot.
