EDITOR'S OPINION

Unlike his former alter ego, Nightwing has had fewer animated incarnations than Robin.

Loren Lester maintained his exact sharp voice that he used for Robin in the Batman Animated Series.

In Teen Titans, we got a peek into the future and here, Scott Menville lowered the tone of his Robin voice to show how much the Boy Wonder had grown up.

Another future episode in The Batman gave us our only current Nightwing not to voice a Robin. Jerry O'Connell used his naturally strong voice to bring life to the hero of Bloodhaven.

Batman The Brave and the Bold actually showed Robin's transition into Nightwing with Crawford Wilson maintaining his same older version of Robin voice, with what sounds like the youngest voice amongst the current 4 Nightwings.

Loren Lester- Very good, but it would have been nice if the voice sounded a bit more matured from the Dick Grayson Robin.

Scott Menville- It's too nasal and hushed, I'm not really a big fan of it.

Jerry O' Connel- I'm pleasantly surprised, he sounds like an experienced crime fighter that's moved on from being Robin and would be more than capable of taking over as Batman. He gets my vote.

Crawford Wilson- Too immature and young sounding.

NPH- I like it as a performance on its own, but its a little too jokey. I prefer him as Spider-Man.

Joey Hood- Too much of a downer for me to enjoy.

Jesse McCartney- He's a better Robin, the voice is too young and high pitched.

Troy Baker- He's in 2nd place, my only problem is that the voice feels a tad bit generic.

Neil Patrick Harris, because his voice acting captured what Nightwing should sound like in animation. Loren Lester's Nightwing was too serious in my opinion, but then the TAS series is dark and serious, so whatever, he is a second alternative.

3. Jerry O' Connell - Has a good voice and gets everything about Nightwing down perfectly well.
4. Scott Menville - Similar to Jerry's.
5. Jesse McCartney - Good, but he was better as Robin than he was as Nightwing.
6. Troy Baker - Overrated. He sounds too deep for my liking.
7. Crawford Wilson - A little too upbeat.
8. Joey Hood - Way too downbeat.

McCartney was great for the version of Nughtwing he had to portray (a 19 year old one), but I think Troy's voice suits a typical Nightwing most, an older one. And honestly, I think Joey Hood has a pretty good voice for Dick Grayson.

On second thought, I'm gonna chnge my vote to Troy Baker. He's got the sense of humor and mature but still young like Dick needs, but also sounds like he'd work when Dick becomes Batman like in Prodigal and from Battle of the Cowl to the reboot, which is sadly something I can't see Neil Patrick Harris doing.

I'm curious- what do you think of Matthew Mercer as a potential Nightwing?
My personal picks for Nightwing and Oracle would be Josh Keaton and Caitlin Glass respectively. Pity the latter's based in Texas... where the voice-acting is for anime and the occasional video game.
I have Bryce Papenbrook and Cassandra Lee Morris in mind for Tim and Steph (then, those two work in mostly in anime and JRPGs, so... gah. A person can still dream, right?).
As for Cassandra Cain... the only actress that comes to mind is Kim Mai Guest.

1. Joey Hood- he gave the somber but not too somber feel that Nightwing should have. It has that strong/deep but not too deep voice that sounds like a student of Batman that has grown up butdoesn't sound exactly like Batman.

2. Jerry O'Connell- though I wish he had more screen time he does a good deep voice and sounds somber but not too much so.

3. Loren and Scott- both are alright, both could have deepen their voices a litte more.

4 Neil Patrick Harris- I am a big fan of Neil but I feel this was a mit of a miscast, it does show Nightwing's charm but I don't like how joking it is. Doesn't feel like he was under Batman's wing.

5. Crawford Wilson- He is too young, I get it's Robin just turing Nightwing but doesn't really fit for what I imagine. He does alright if not a bit winy sometimes but does have some strong and I can see it as a 'ealy Nightwing'

6. Jesse McCartney- I liked him as Robin but he barley differs his voice from Robin. It should be deeper and I konda blame how we barley see him in recent episodes, espcially doing more solo or even team missions but for now it doesn't really feel that strong or independent.

@Music Meister

To be fair, YJ Nightwing has a better relationship with Bats than most incarnations, so it's not gonna sound as dark. Also, he's only 19 in this incarnation, and Jesse's in his mid-20's and he's just using his regular voice. Eh, a case of Reality is Unrealistic, it seems. :-P

Neil Patrick Harris- Easily the best; he captures both lighthearted and serious moments wonderfully.

Scott Menville/ Jerry O' Connell: A nice mix of young and old. The fact that they sound like the older versions of the incarnations of Robin in this show is a bonus.

Jesse McCartney: This guy would have been in second (or maybe even first) place... if he'd deepened his voice a bit more. I get that Nightwing is still a teenager in Invasion, but still- Jesse's Nightwing sounds like a 16-17 year old, and not like the 19 year old Dick's supposed to be. Greg said that he'd pitched Jesse's voice up to play Dick as a 13 year old, and stopped doing that (pitching Jesse up, I mean) when Nightwing came into the picture, but it's stil to young. A pity too, because, acting-wise, I think Jesse nailed Dick as both a 13-year-old and a 19-year-old. It's just the voice itself that bothers me.
And I second whoever said that Yuri Lowenthal or Troy Baker should play Nightwing! My fangirl dream would come true if that happened!

I wasn't a big fan of McCartney's Nightwing when the second season first started, because while his voice for Nightwing was certainly deeper than his voice for Robin, it didn't sound like a guy in his late teens. As the episodes went on, I noticed that his voice started to get even deeper, and Dick started to sound more like a guy his age. I suppose he just needed time to adjust to playing an older character after playing a 13-year-old for 26 episodes, and I must say, his Nightwing is slowly growing on me.

While Conroy and Hamill are my favorites as the Joker, I'm going to cop that I don't have a TAS basis on everyone and while Loren Lester was all right, he's not my favorite as Nightwing. I'm gonna go with Jerry O'Connell. His Nightwing does a right amount of young enough to be Nightwing yet old enough to no longer be Robin and has a sense of authority to make in believable to think he could lead the Titans or something. NPH was good as Nightwing, too, but his Nightwing was a little more jokey and a goofball than Dick as Nightwing sound be.

@Anicomicgeek Sticking with Neil Patrick Harris for Nightwing. While the voice Jesse McCartney did for Dick worked for Robin, I'm not sure it works for Dick as Ngihtwing, especially if he's 18. He should've deeped his vocie a bit for Ngihtwing.

@Anicomicgeek He's still pretty young. Puberty didn'
t do much fro him.

@Music Meister Robin Jesse is in mid 20's and to be fair it's not like he knew the writers would age Dick plus he isn't a huge VA so he can do the best he can.

@pete I'm saying Jesee has a very young sounding voice is all

@Music Meister Which is why he was cast as Roxas and Robin. He could have been replaced but I'm guessing since Nightwing is only 18 it still fits somewhat.

@pete Still, he's 18 in the series now, so you'd think his voice would've gotten at least a little bit deeper.

@Anicomicgeek His voice is deeper, I can hear it. Compare his voice for robin and now as Nightwing, you should be able to hear a difference. Personally, I can hear the maturity in Jesse's voice for Nightwing, a good transformation from Robin.

@AMT Not all that deeper; he still sounds too young for 18.

Sticking with Harris, but Troy Baker is pretty good.

A lot of people like NPH's Nightwing but I'm at a toss between Joey Hood and Loren Lester

Neil Patrick Harris is the best. The others are too bland.

Loren Lester followed closely by Jerry O'Connell...

Both actully sound like they are young yet grown up enough to be Nightwing and not Robin...

yeah, I'm just so used to NPH being well, NPH. He fits the role of Spider-Man than Nightwing, to me at least :)

To foxwolf : Um , they intentionally made Nightwing a goofball to balance the darkness of Batman and Red Hood . And , he did show a more serious side when he was talking about how Red Hood required training to cut one of Bruce`s lines !

5th - Wilson
4th - Menville
3rd - Lester

Before I go on I have to agree with foxwolf on the above point. If a voice actor doesn't get any meaty lines to say, then it holds back their talent somewhat.

Having said that...

OConnell gets the ribbon. And I still give
Harris the trophy.

Now where have I seen Jerry OConnell before? Oh, of course 'Sliders".

A noteworthy note: Jerry OConnell lends his voice to Captain Marvel, in S04E07 of Justice League.

while Neil Patrick Harris did a good job with the humor and sarcasm in his lines as Nightwing, the writing didn't give him a chance to be serious, which made him out to be more of a goofball :(

We may have to wait to see Doogie play Nightwing in Batman: Under the Red Hood.
