Definitive voice for Sonic. The only VA to have never dubbed Sonic, since Sonic switched over and became a series where the JP versions are the dubs.

I'm very surprised that Sonic has become one of his most popular roles on here, according to the "Favorite Role" vote policy. Even since he took over in 2010, everyone loves his Sonic voice. I'm still getting use to his Sonic voice now, I still like Jason Griffith too. But still I like Roger's Sonic too. Besides, he's still doing a great job as Sonic.

Happy Birthday, Roger Craig Smith! Not only am I convinced that he's faster than the speed of sound, the VA can also punch through giant boulders. Okay, joking aside, my favorite RCS roles thus far include Chris Redfield, Wonder Blue, Deidara, Siegfried Schtauffen, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, Captain America/Steve Rogers, and Thomas. Smith is also fairly likable as Sonic the Hedgehog himself, though he's honestly grown off me a tad as of late. To put it this way, he's great in Colors, Generations, and Lost World to a degree, but not terribly interesting when it comes down to the Boom universe.

It's pretty cool that he plays Captain America & Human Torch just like Chris Evans.

Even though I don't like Roger's Sonic voice as much as others do, I do respect him as a voice actor. My favorite role of his would have to be Deidara from Naruto: Shippuden.
said at 10:00 AM on Mon Jun 27 2016
You know, I think that one of Roger's pros about his Sonic voice is that his acting is consistent and the lines are well-delivered. However, his cons are that the voice itself doesn't fit well (as it isn't age-appropriate for the character) and that the writing isn't helping him that much.

Overall, I STILL think Roger's a very good voice actor, but Sonic just isn't one of his best roles for me. At the same time, however, it's not one of his worst roles. In short, I think he's okay as Sonic, but at the same time, miscast.

@Marusero We get it. Roger's not your favourite VA for Sonic. Please stop spamming VA profiles, VC pages and the forums with the same (admittedly polite, well-worded and benign) statement.
said at 12:05 PM on Mon Jun 27 2016
@TylerMirage Understood, I think this'll be my last time saying it. Sorry. Sometimes, I think I'm a bit of a mess.
said at 12:14 PM on Mon Jun 27 2016
@TylerMirage Also, I don't mean to senselessly bash him and/or spam. It's just that, I don't know, maybe I repeat that same mistake more than once. I just wish I could try to make others understand me. Once again, I'm sorry. Can you please help me on how I type things down? I think I need it.

When Tales of Vesperia came out, I remember saying that his Zagi sounded like a psychotic Sonic the Hedgehog.

Now Roger's voicing Sonic. Funny how things work.

No offense to anyone. I think Roger's Sonic is good, but something seems off in my opinion. I think Roger could a good fit for other characters like, for example, Knuckles and Espio.
said at 4:53 PM on Sat Feb 20 2016
Nowadays, I think Roger's just an average Sonic (but somewhat miscast, IDK). Also, I find him kind of overrated here.

Happy Birthday Roger Craig Smith!

The guy is another of the video game greats. I mean he is Sonic The Hedgehog, Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Chris Redfield. He also does a really good Batman, I was so surprised by how well that turned out. He is also excellent as Captain Marvel, Captain America, The Human Torch, Forge, Gilbert G.P Guilford, The Pulverizer/Mutagen Man, Jetstorm, Slipstream, Divebomb and Duke.

During the 11th edition of Liam O'Brien and Sam Riegel's podcast "All work no play", they asked what would be the title for his autobiography? Roger replied "Hand farts, why they help define you as a person". That sounds like a bestseller which I want buy in an instant. If there's an audio book version, hand farts in the recording are a must.

There is an IRL Tax scam going around and unfortunately they called Roger Craig Smith. Smith has put up recordings of these on youtube. All I can say is... the voice of Hector needs to be an animated character.

On Wikipedia, it says that Roger Craig Smith voices Phoenix Wright in Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney! And I can totally hear it! I hope it is him who voices Phoenix, since I think it's so fitting!

@donniegirl12 No, it's not him. The game was recorded in the UK.

I've seen the game's voice cast and have been working on adding it to the site for a while now, but they don't match any actor names to characters.

said at 8:51 PM on Mon Apr 7 2014
@donniegirl12 After a quick bit of investigating, it appears Phoenix's VA is Trevor White, a Canadian-born voice actor based in London.

@NCZ ah! Thank you! It's been bugging me for a while now, the whole cast of that game has been bugging me, actually. We know professor layton is voiced by Christopher Miller and Luke Is voiced Maria Darling, but we don't know about the others. I'm guessing Lani Minella voices Maya. That's who I can hear, anyway.

He was funny on 1337 Lounge Live. Told some funny stories including his awkward moment at his niece's party to his and Troy Baker's joke. To trigger the joke you have to place your fingers and thumbs together to form a triangle.

@akersaotome he never would because he lives in california and funimation is at texas.
said at 1:55 PM on Tue Aug 6 2013

Funny you should say that because there are California based V.A's that travel to Funimation. Nothing is impossible when it comes to the world of voice acting.
said at 2:00 PM on Tue Aug 6 2013

Currently there are 5 voice actors that do that. Stephanie Sheh, Patrick Seitz, Todd Haberkorn, Christopher Smith, and Carrie Savage. With Sengoku Basara and Tales of Vesperia, there were two studios dubbing at the same time, those being Bang Zoom! and funimation. Currently, Troy Baker, Johnny Yong Bosch, Laura Bailey, and Travis Willingham would only fly over to reprise a role.
said at 4:41 PM on Tue Aug 6 2013

You forgot to mention Vic Mignogna since he's based in L.A. Anyway Roger Craig Smith on a Funimation project would totally rock.
said at 7:50 PM on Tue Aug 6 2013
@akersaotome oh crap i totally forgot about vic, so that makes 6 people who would fly over occasionally. And I forgot to mention Spike Spencer who would go to funi to reprise his role in evangelion. But yeah, I would love to hear him in funi but video game acting pays a hell lot more than anime plus he hasn't really done anime roles lately.

I'm still iffy on his voice with Sonic but I'm sure it'll grow on me. I do enjoy his work for Chris Redfield, and Ezio. :) And I'm sure he'll sound good with Captain America. ^^

He does a very nice voice for Sonic, I still miss Jason Griffith and he probably won't ever return so Roger is a good replacement. He also makes Sonic sound older which I kind of like..
