Her performance has received positive to mixed reviews. Many fans praise her voice as being sexy, and higher-pitched like Rouge's previous voice actress, Lani Minella.[citation needed] Some fans have said her voice is the most suitable for a girl of Rouge's age, but others have felt that she makes Rouge sound too promiscuous.


  • Strassman has lent her voice in Mortal Kombat 9 as Kitana and Mileena, in which she worked with Lani Minella, who voiced Sindel.[citation needed]
    • She is also the current voice of infamous Capcom character Poison as of Street Fighter X Tekken. Like Rouge, Poison was previously voiced by Lani Minella.
  • Despite being fluent in French, she doesn't provide the French voice of Rouge since Sonic Generations.
