Video Game Characters You Never Knew Shared The Same Voice Actor

Rich Bloomfield of Nizulo writes: "The list below may surprise even the most dedicated of you gamers. Hell, some of it even surprised me. Who would've thought that a big, brutish gear soldier, and a diabolical, dim-witted robot, shared the same voice. Or that an innocent, bubbly blonde princess and a curvaceous, full-figured AI, are in fact the exact same person. Mind blowing stuff, right?

Well, here it is, our list of video game characters you never knew shared the same voice actor." (Culture, Industry)

Love lists like these. These are wonderfully talented people.

Fun fact: One Troy Baker is Booker DeWitt in Bioshock Infinite and Joel from The Last of Us, in case you didn't know. Didn't even realize that at first, personally.

Thanks for the kind words PopRocks359, and you're absolutely right; these voice actors are amazingly talented.

That's awesome! As more fine suggestions are made, we'll update the list :)

He is KANJI!!
Cablephish  +   476d ago
And Kanji Tatsumi, and the male protagonist of Saint's Row the Third, which I just learned today after playing it.

Since I really noticed the voice acting for Kanji, I always associate Troy with Kanji. :P

He's also Batman. Which is why he has his "Where is she?" down so well.
Inception  +   476d ago
Troy Baker also Vincent in Catherine, Two Face & Robin in Arkham City, Joker in Arkham Origins, Delsin in inFamous 2nd Son, Valvatorez in Disgaea 4, Ryu Hayabusha in NG 3 / DoA 5, etc.

Troy Baker has been in the anime voice acting business for a long time before hitting it big in game voice acting. Good to see the guy getting some recognition, because, like you said PopRocks, they're talented people.

Fred Tatasciore also are the voices *(partially) for the B&B corps for MGS4; the Voice of Kratos also is the voice for Othello on UTIII (T.C. Carson).

Yeah, and Hunk from RE and Vector the Croc from the Sonic series is voiced by the same guy. He also did Simon Belmont in one of the Castlevanisa Kieth Siverstein, I think.

That Brock Samson Guy also did the voice of Joe Swamspm in Family guy, and I think the also did the voice of that balloner guy in Spyro.

And that guy who played Radec in Killzone 2 and Hakka in Killzone also did the voice of some mirror or facet in a maze in Medievil (he also played an Ultramarine in that animated movie, but I forget the details).

Keith David did the voice of the Arbiter in Halo and the voice of Spawn. He should only do voices of the best characters.

Love lists like these! Some of them are so vastly different that one would be forgiven for thinking these guys are trolling.

Wait, Hercules was only in God of War III and was voiced by the same guy that did the 90's TV show Kevin Sorbo.

Cam Clarke did voice Hercules for God of War II but unfortunately, the character (Hercules) didn't make the final cut. The game however, still credits Cam Clarke for voicing Hercules.
Godmars290  +   477d ago
Hercules was in GOW2?

I too don't remember.

Never knew Mark Hamill did Wolverine, that's more Steve Blums icon.

Another couple are Wesker (Resident Evil)/Legion (Mass Effect) by DC Douglas and Ryu (Street Fighter)/Gohan (Dragonball Z Games) by Kyle Hebert.
Rivitur  +   477d ago
Wow I had no idea the guy who did the voice for Gordon Freeman was also Argile from Fallout 3 who knew.

To the author,
Add Nolan North who played Nathan Drake, Richtofen from COD zombies, the Penguin in Batman & loads more.

He was also David in TLOU (Joel's friend).

The list that is shrinking b/c they r putting A list actors in some games now. It's a shame, especially when I play last of us and Troy Baker's performance is some of the best acting I've personally seen in recent yrs(I've not seen Lincoln which i hear Daniel Day does great in but it's freakin daniel day)
GusBricker  +   476d ago
Cam Clarke = Die Fledermaus in The Tick = Awesome!
