Troy Baker

Birth Place: Dallas, Texas, USA
Date Of Birth: Apr 1, 1976
Voice Over Language: English

Trivia & Fun Facts:

Auditioned for the role of Kyoya Otori in Ouran High School Host Club and would've got the role, but due to a busy schedule he was unable to work on the show. The role eventually went to J. Michael Tatum. Says Tatum did a better job then he ever could've done.


(on Kanji from Persona 4)
"Kanji is far and away one of the most intriguing characters I've ever played. The approach that Atlus wanted to take was a very specific one and we spent the majority of our first session and a good deal of subsequent ones... discussing 'who kanji was' rather than just 'how does this line sound'. They were incredibly patient and gracious, open to ideas and more than anything we had fun with it. There was a delicate balance between the humor and the pathos to Kanji that at times was a very precarious line to walk. We didn't want to push it too far, for fear of Kanji becoming comic relief, rather than a plot moving element with a stupendous character arc. What has amazed me more than anything is how fans have latched onto Kanji. The way they've identified with him has been humbling and incredibly interesting to observe. It further proves my belief that games aren't just entertainment, but viable venues for social commentary and an interactive experience that challenges our ideas, philosophies and perspectives on the human condition."

I've noticed that Troy hasn't done any new Annie dubbing projects lately. He hasn't given up on dubbing over Western projects, has he?

It's amusing to see hat Troy has done anime, video games AND Western animation.

But I'll always know him best for his video game work. Particularly for roles such as Pyrrhon, Pain, Kanji, and of course, Mitsunari Ishida.

From what I've heard, Troy has become union only now. As you guys may know, that has its up and downs. While he is certainly going to keep getting roles, he is now unable to reprise past roles (Kanji and Valvatorez). Just curious, are there more benefits to union than non union? I can never seem to find a concrete answer.

@DravenRoth994 Looks like Matthew Mercer took his place as Yamato as well. Well, it certainly helps that they have similar voices.

@DravenRoth994 Troy Baker's decision to become the biggest voice actor in the face of the earth may explain why he doesn't really get any non-union roles these days, even when it comes to anime.
said at 4:41 PM on Mon Aug 25 2014
Hmm look like naruto wiki say Matthew mercer play Yamato look like Troy baker left all anime now game I can't believe it now how will he voice mitsunari I guess Matthew mercer will take his role

Mercer is just Baker's understudy, period. I still believe Mercer was Hawkeye in Avengers Confidential.

Troy seems to have sadly left dubbing behind now... All his old roles from Persona to Disgaea have now been given to Matt Mercer, which is pretty depressing...

Makes me hope Soul Eater Not never has an appearance from Excalibur, since I could never imagine anyone else in that role...

So he is just solely voicing for video games now?
Matthew Mercer has now taken on his (Troy's) as Yamato in Naruto Shippuden.
This worries me... IF Sengoku Basara Judge End gets a dub... Troy HAS to be Mitsunari.
There are just certain roles of his that can't be replaced...

Building maniacal laughter which sounded like a dolphin having an asthma attack cost Troy the role as Greed from the 2004 version of Fullmetal Alchemist.

I liked Chris Patton better as Greed. Don't get me wrong, Troy is an awesome voice actor but I just couldn't see him as Greed.
said at 6:59 PM on Thu Oct 17 2013

I guess for FMA, Chris Patton was better at building maniacal laughter better than Troy. I also liked Patton's Creed. Still, Troy did get the role of Frank Archer and that's the role I took notice of Baker.

I think this guy is kinda like LA's Scott McNeil. He has a pretty recognizable and distinctive voice, yet he can completely turn it on it's head if need be. Both actors do face type casting, but they both have an absolutely stunning array of voices.

His appearance on 1337 Lounge Live on the 15th July was a joy to watch.

Most importantly whilst on 1337 Lounge, Troy geeking out on the arcade cabinet they have.

-get more jRPG roles
-voice a character in Digimon Fusion (Dorulumon)
-voice a character in Gargantia if that anime gets dubbed (Chamber)
-voice a character in Magi: the Labyrinth of Magic if that gets dubbed (Judal)
-be the official voice actor of Ike and Ephraim from the Fire Emblem series
-voice a character in the Little Busters anime if Sentai Filmworks dub it (Kyousuke Natsume)
-hope that he gets a role in Sword Art Online
-hope that he gets a role in K
-get a role in Fairy Tail (Zancrow), Attack on Titan, and Toriko.
-be the official voice actor of Gordon Freeman of Half-Life 3
-voice a character in Starcraft II
-voice a character in the Pokemon series

and there is many moreon the list that I can't put in there because it's too much.

@VctrBnsn I don't know, he does a disturbingly close impression of my mother so far... Anyway, I'd say that he practically never does a bad job as long as he's been given good direction (Silent Hill 2 HD was an example of poor direction). And his range is quite remarkable, for some reason though, a lot of his performances haven't endeared themselves to me on a personal level, but I can't deny his talent. BTW, Phil LaMarr is a great choice! ;)

Troy Baker's Greed is excellent. He's bringing out a lot more of Greed's arrogant, jaunty personality than the previous VA. He should have been Greed in the first series, too. I'm glad my favorite FMA character has a fitting voice now.

Funimation has taken quite a huge risk casting Troy Baker as Greed 2 in Brotherhood..lets be honest here he is no Chris Patton..what I've heard from him so far as Greed 2 in Brotherhood has indeed been good..but I won't be able to fully give my full opinion on his performance until I see more of it..but its going to be a long wait considering part 4 of Brotherhood doesn't come out until March 29th..I'm very curious to see how he will handle the dramatic parts of Greed 2..Chris was able to really bring out a great deal of style & attitude in his performance as Greed..I'm hoping Troy can do the same..only time will tell.
