Thank you for being such an inspiration to me in both my life and work, you inspired my character of Kouki in my web-manga Getting to know You.

I can't thank you enough for how you inspired me in my daily life, thank you so much again Mr. Mercer.

Matthew Mercer, the Tom Hiddleston of voice acting.

@Troodon2 Do you think he should voice Loki?
said at 7:28 PM on Fri Sep 4 2015
@HK-47 master Perhaps. I only brought this up as a for-lude to referring to Troy Baker as the Benedict Cumberbatch of voice acting.
said at 8:25 AM on Wed Jul 15 2015
You know, I think Matthew should replace Travis Willingham as Knuckles. Mainly because he sounds like the character's earlier incarnations in the games.

@Marusero Scott Dreier? How does he sound like Scott Dreier?

@Hinata_Miku Using the voice he used for Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening. That's just what I think.

Happy Birthday Matthew. I haven't heard much of his anime work yet, but he's brought some tremendous performances, like Kiritsugu Emiya, Chrom, Tony Stark/Iron Man, Leon S. Kennedy, Anarky, Sinbad, Robin, Bayman, Alvin, and Blackbeard among others!!!

It's interesting how much he sounds like Troy Baker as well, taking over a good amount of his roles.

Happy Birthday Matthew you were really awesome for your roles as Aikuro Mikisugi, Tygra, Kiritsugu Emiya, among many others you voiced throughout your career.

It's nice to see that he has filled in Troy Baker's shoes, in the anime side of things and is worth successor to him.

Good luck on the rest of your amazing voice over work.

Happy Birthday Matthew Mercer!

It's pretty incredible that he sounds pretty spot on to Troy Baker and it's a great thing since Troy is no longer voicing in anime, Matthew is picking up where he's left off and does a terrific job doing so.

Kiritsugu Emiya is easily his best and most finest performance to date, giving a cool gruff voice to the very tired world weary cynical (anti)hero pragmatist.

I also really enjoyed his performances as Sinbad, Aikuro Mikisugi, Levi, Mizuki Akabayashi, Black Vise, Chrom, Rihan Nura, Reapmon, Anarky, Robin, Tony Stark/Iron Man and Jotaro Kujo from what I've heard in the test dub released last year. He is a perfect fit for Jotaro in English and I'm hoping he's here to stay for the role as apparently he's been a huge fan of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure for quite a long time, no doubt this was a dream come true for him.

I also cannot wait to hear him as Prince Demande in Sailor Moon, no doubt that will be an epic performance.

also the fact he was announced as the English voice for Trafalgar Law today of all days is awesome and no doubt an excellent birthday present.

Happy birthday to one of my favourite actors. His quality have grown to the point that I expect him to be in a good number of titles, whether its animation or video games. From playing the unlucky hero in Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil 6 and Damanation; father of the year in Kiritsugu Emiya from Fate/Zero; fan favourite as Levi Ackerman from Attack on Titan, and snarks like Tygra from Thundercats and Alvin from Tales of Xillia.

As a Dungeon Master for Critical Role, he switches into character, from Clarota, Lady Kima and most importantly Gilmore. He can dance like no other as he earned the title of Dancing Master.

I love this man. Only really recently started hearing him a lot. I think my favorite role for him would have to be The Black Dog Kuroh from "K". Such a calm and composed warrior with a solid set of values and an unnatural obsession over his former master. Chrom is a close second.
I'm super stoked to hear his performance as Robin tonight in Arkham Knight. I can already hear it and picture him.

@NCZ As much as I love that the divine irony exists with him voicing Chrom in Robin's Trailer, Final Smash and Palutena's Guidance, I stand by that he should have been playable.

@VGAfanatic Nah, I think they made the right choice going with Robin. Chrom's just another swordsman. With both Marth and Ike already present, he wouldn't have brought anything new to the roster--whereas Robin's limited-use magic spells represent a prominent aspect of the Fire Emblem series that hadn't been touched till that point.

(Before Lucina is brought up, she was intended to simply be an alternate skin for Marth and was given her own slot as a clone to pad out the roster at the last minute)

Happy Belated Birthday to Matthew Mercer. One of my all time favorite voice actors!!!! His performances as Stryker and Leon impressed me, but it was his role as Chrom that solidified him as one of my favorites. He brought the right amount of authority (not to mention Chrom was a BAD ASS) and emotion to the role. He also worked for the games more comedic moments. Granted there isn't much dialogue there, but his "HUH" tends to me smile. I also love him as Kiritsugu Emiya, Bayman, Alvin, Walter, Melvin Voyager / Atlas, Tony Stark/Iron Man, and Levi among others.

Happy Birthday to Matthew Mercer. He's fantastic as Levi, Chrom, Stryker, ZWEI, Kuroh, Sinbad, and Kiritsugu.

Happy Birthday Matt Mercer! Very fantastic and yet remarkable work as Chrom, Kanji, Rihan Nura, Kiritsugu Emiya, Fei Long, Leon, Kuroh and Simbad.

Happy Birthday Matthew Mercer. One of the coolest voice actors in the industry. His voice as Chrom was heroic, Levi was a total BA, Alvin was comical, Kiritsugu was cold and stern, Tony Stark was awesome, Tygra was smug, Kuroh was serious, and the rest are absolutely amazing. Happy B-Day Matthew Mercer!

Mercer tells a story when Patrick Seitz (voice director for Fire Emblem Awakening) intentionally made things awkward. Whilst Matt was reading through the script he reaches to Chrom's confession line, "wind at my back and the sword at my side". Patrick Seitz directed Matt to not break eye contact with him whilst performing the line. Mercer did perform the line feeling dirty afterwards. As for Seitz, he was grinning the whole time.
said at 4:49 PM on Fri Jun 27 2014
@akersaotome Didn't even know Patrick Seitz did the directing in that game! No wonder I loved the english voices so much!

Wondering if he asked EVERY voice actor to do the same lol.

Matt Mercer tells a funny story about a line that was not included for Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, where her played as Rei. The producer for the english audio didn't do a pre-read of the script before recording. As Mercer was recording, this particular line that was translated to English read: "There's no way you can stop me from putting my fingers inside of you!"

If that line was included in the final product, I would buy that game in an instant.

It's pretty crazy to listen to his voice get so deep, masculine and growly, seeing how all I knew him for before joining the site was Kai from AKIRA.

@PsychicVoiceSpy No doubt. Mercer has proven to be a very versatile actor. Check out his work on stuff like Warcraft, Dead or Alive, Dynasty Warriors and Persona. The versatility really does show.
said at 3:35 PM on Wed Nov 27 2013
this guy sounds like he should be at funimation. I mean he's great in many video games and anime from LA, but with his voice he can definitely interact well with voice actors like josh grille, brina Palencia, trina nishimura, john swasey, kent Williams, Stephanie young, mike mcfraland, colleen clinkenbeard, Jason liebrecht, david trosko(the two also sound alike), Brittany karbowski, leah clark, chuck Huber, grant james, joel McDonald, eric vale, greg ayres, Austin tindle, chris bevins and chris sabat
said at 4:10 PM on Wed Nov 27 2013

If he were to appear on more Funimation titles, other than Mike McFarland, which voice director would wants to get their paws on him? How many would pounce on him using gifts or food?

The names you listed could interact with Mercer, ideally in a prelay recording environment.
said at 4:16 PM on Wed Nov 27 2013
@akersaotome I was told by someone that it's mike's job to hire voic eactors outside of texas. but if anyone other than mike wants to use him, I guess either Zach Bolton, colleen clinkenbeard, joel McDonald, or tyler walker would want him. heck, he would probably make a great marco, caeser, or merman prince
said at 5:25 PM on Wed Nov 27 2013

Funimation must have alot of faith in Mike McFarland in hire actors outside the state of Texas. I heard when Chris Smith was at Funimation, he worked with other voice directors to maximize his time in Texas. Same can apply to Mercer if the opportunity presents itself.
said at 6:08 PM on Wed Nov 27 2013
@akersaotome chris' voice does scream funimation and i hope he comes back on and off again like patrick seitz or carrie savage. if he mostly comes back in funimation, it might be in the same position as carrie. i hope other people will hire matthew. heck, since laura bailey and kyle hebert are working on dragon ball z kai, i hope they can mostly appear this 2014. i expect her to be in attack on titan, hataraku no maou sama, psycho pass, one piece, and other stuff licensed by funimation including kyle. i also hope they interact with the newbies like josh grelle, joel mcdonald, jad saxton, morgan garret, newton pittman, scott freeman, bryan massey, and brad hawkins. i always am a big fan of big times meeting with the newbies. heck, i believe the interacting between josh grelle and laura bailey would pull off extremely well. heck, if troy baker and matthew mercer ever come to texas and interact with david trosko, they might do some kind of duet or talk to eachother to confuse the audiance who is who.
said at 6:28 PM on Wed Nov 27 2013

Can't call Josh Grelle a newbie since he's been voice acting during the ADV days. I like Grelle aswell, as I believe his talent should be in L.A. Also I wouldn't call most of the names you listed as newbies.

Back to Mercer, I think he'd make a good Erwin Smith from Attack on Titan.
said at 8:31 PM on Sun Dec 29 2013
@akersaotome well my Definition of newbies aren't a bad thing. It's just new voice actors interacting with old ones.
said at 10:27 PM on Thu Oct 10 2013
I first heard him in Mortal Kombat 9, then he came to my attention again in Resident Evil 6. However, it wasn't until Fire Emblem Awakening when I truly started to love him. I'm not saying his other roles were bad, but his performance as Chrom was one of my favorites in the game. It makes me want to get into voice acting.
said at 10:16 PM on Thu Oct 10 2013
Out of curiousity, is he union or non-union? I've noticed he works for AVO Talent, which is a union company, and yet he has worked with Troy Baker and Laura Bailey on a number on a number of occasions. He even filled in for Troy as Kanji. Is there some kind of expection there? Am I missing something? I'm pretty curious about this.

It was great hearing you as Emiya in Fate Zero, Fei-Long, Bayman, Atlas, Leon and Kanji.
said at 11:01 PM on Sat Mar 30 2013
I was mighty impressed with his performance as he stole the show in the Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos as Melvin Voyager.

Now he's landed the role of Emiya Kiritsugu in Fate Zero, it wouldn't surprise me if there's a huge of amount of expectation for him to nail the part.

According to Sam Riegel and Liam O'Brien's third episode of the podcast All work no play, Matthew is a great dungeon master for Dungeons and Dragons.
