EDITOR'S OPINION

Happy Halloween everyone! So for the latest VC for Castlevania we have the son of Dracula ALUCARD!

We shall actually start this from Season 3 of Captain N with Alucard voiced by Ocean Group VA Ian James Cortlett. Though of course Ian James Cortlett is the only thing remotely renowned about Alucard's depiction in Captain N.

Like certain other characters DiC had no intention on taking this character seriously as you can see here (though at least Alucard's rebellious personality seems to be still there). But still alike Andrew Kavadas as Simon Belmont, Ian's performance did fit the characterization that DiC was going with here.

In the late 90's we have the highly renowned PS1 game Castlevania Symphony of the Night with the rather revered English voice work back then, in which Alucard was voiced by Robert Belgrade. Aside from the likes of Metal Gear Solid and the Mega Man Legends series the voice acting in Video games back then were generally deemed either infuriatingly atrocious to So Bad its Good. (In which Castlevania Symphony of the Night was sadly by no means an exception.) To be honest aside from a questionable line or few Robert's work as Alucard didn't seem that bad to me, the voice didn't seem so bad and well its one of the better performances in that game back then.

In the PSP version of that game (and Castlevania Judgment for the Wii) Alucard was voiced VA Yuri Lowenthal. Say what you will about Yuri being a bit overused in voicing pretty boys with angst issues but to me this is one of Yuri's better performances with that kind of role. Seriously I found Yuri's voice to be QUITE fitting for Alucard here and his work as Alucard is probably one of his better performances.

So yeah I am pretty much going with Yuri Lowenthal here as the best of the 3 Alucard English voices here.

The saddest thing is, I didn't know Alucard was Dracula backwards until two days ago

Robert Belgrade has a fitting voice for Alucard, but his acting's kind of iffy. Yuri Lowenthal's the opposite, his voice sounds a bit too young for Alucard, but he has better acting. Richard Madden was also good as well, I wouldn't mind him voicing Alucard in future material. I'm not counting Ian James Corlett's version.

yuri works well as Alucard. Belgrade though the voice fits for and old kind of Alucard too many people complained about his acting and so IGA called for a redub and now Yuri is Alucard. I think Yuri's work since Alucard doesn't age much and his appearance as in younger the voice works. Belgrade makes sound deep and cool but the way he delivered his lines and used the voice is why I don't think it works well nowadays especially with so many new gen gamers getting into castlevania

@Sonic_Blaze In my opinion I think doing the redub was stupid and it sucked. I think what they should have done was not a redub but upgraded the graphics to 2.5D like they did with Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles which is a remake to Rondo of Blood. I barely hear people complaining about Belgrade's portrayal of Alucard I hear more people complaining about Yuri's portrayal of Alucard. I personally did not like him voicing Alucard to me all he did was take his Sasuke Uchiha voice from Naurto and Naruto Shippuden and put it in Alucard. You Know that Alucard is only half vampire right? and Symphony of the Night is like 400 years after Castlevania 3. so I don't believe he should be sounding like a 13 or 16 year old. If they are to make a future Castlevania game with Alucard as the main protagonist again...I hope they don't Yuri again. If it were up to me I would get someone like Crispin Freeman to do Alucard's voice he did an excellent job as Mathias Cronqvist in Lament of Innocence and Hector in Curse of Darkness so I would love to see him portray Alucard.

@MaskedKaneBRM but a vampire is like immortal and so their age is more in their younger like years. I prefer Yuri more than Belgrade. But then again bringing up a stupid NAruto reference sickens me. Alucard with Yuri sounds llike he's in his twenties despite being more than 400 yeas old. Belgrade did mediocre at best but It sounded bad to me . Crispin Freeman as Alucard would probably give him a lamer imitation of Belgrads or like Scott McCulloch. It wouldn't fit Alucard it would make him sound older and older as in his 50 to 60's old. The old one Belgrade made ALucard sound older than Dracula. I didn't like that because Alucard is suppose to be like years younger than Drac so it would make more sense to go with a kind of younger voice. I played SOTN back in 97 and Belgrade doesn't fit as alucard to me. probably never will.

@Sonic_Blaze I don't care if they take out Yuri. Anyone else doing Alucard is better than Belgrade. I hope they never use him as Alucard again

@Sonic_Blaze I'll be honest and will just have to go with MaskedKaneBRM's statement on this one. Not that I hate Yuri's performance, but a majority of his roles (including this one) all sound just like Sasuke Uchiha from the Naruto franchise... And the more I forget about that, the better! So what with Belgrade sucking and the fact that he has no votes? I found him more tolerable than Lowenthal. Yeah, shoot me down for praising a Japan-residing English voice actor, folks! It'll happen every once and a while.

All and all, if you think Yuri is better, okay. But for me, it's always Robert Belgrade just because of nostalgia... And that voice can still get fangirls' spines tingling, which is what I want because I hate fandom due to how overpopulated that area is.

@Ninjaman15 it's not that I hate Belgrade I just don't have that same feel I guess. sure it's Belgrade but it's bad to where I can laugh at it some time and he's the only one that stood out in that game but all in all that's what I really meant. I don't get an Alucard vibe. it sounded more Dracula. Yuri isn't perfect either it's like what does Alucard really look like. is he in his twenties thirties? who knows so probably getting his voice we will never know with a being who is cursed as he. ALUCARD!

Actually as I mentioned before Yuri Lowenthal reprises the role of Alucard in Castlevania Judgment.

Lowenthal sounds like a teenager. Belgrade had a man's voice but unfortunately his lines were terrible. The guy who did him in Judgment is missing. I think he was the best.

haha u think yuri's voice fits alucard ! well hell no it does not !!! robert belgrade is the better voice for alucard yuri's best work is when he voiced sasuke uchiha getting him to do alucard's voice was a horrible idea. bring back robert belgrade and if not him get someone who makes alucard have a deep and cool voice and NOT make him sound like a little 13 year old.

The first voice actor doesn't count. Yuri's voice just doesn't fit because it makes Alucard sound WAY too young. Belgrade has the most Epic voice that will ever exist, and makes the best Alucard, by far.
