EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Castlevania VC section we take a look at this series' take on the Greek Mythology creature Medusa. We shall actually begin with the Captain N series' take on Medusa whom is one of the creatures that Simon Belmont must face, in this series Medusa was voiced by Venus Terzo. Say what you will about how the Captain N series does its character depictions but I rather liked on how Venus played the role here. Venus played the role of Medusa by having a rather alluring and flirty voice at first but then having a considerably witchy voice a little later. Granted Medusa was pretty much a bit role for one episode of Captain N with a small amount of lines but Venus did rather well with what little she got.
Now for the Castlevania game series, Castlevania Lament of Innocence is the first (and so far only) game in the series in which Medusa had a significant speaking role in which she was voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn in this game. Unlike her Captain N counterpart Mary pretty much just went with the "Witchy" side in her performance as Medusa in this game (which in this case makes sense since she is just a giant floating head). Anyways Mary's work as Medusa here is an interesting change of pace as does a pretty good job playing Medusa as a vain creature whom is awfully proud of her work but doesn't exactly like being called a monster. Granted like pretty much all of her other appearances in the Castlevania series Medusa had a small role but Mary did a pretty good job for what little she got for the role here. Overall both of these ladies did pretty well for this role in their own way so I am going with a tie here.
