EDITOR'S OPINIONSimon Belmont, the original hero of the Castlevania series. Though I know right now that while Simon himself is by all means renowned in the series neither one of his depictions for the following two voices on the other hand well not so much.
That is especially true in his often reviled "In Name Only" depiction in the 1989 DiC animated series "Captain N" voiced by semi known Ocean VA Andrew Kavadas.
While Captain N was very much a kids show it was possible for them to do something a bit better for Simon that won't be too explicit for a kids show. However DiC went for a flat out comedic route as how it seems to be that they are spoofing Simon by giving him a flamboyant egomaniac personality.
But in all fairness say what you will about whether if Simon should have been taken more seriously or not but Andew Kavadas' overall performance did certainly fit with what DiC was going with here.
Simon didn't really get an English speaking part until the recent Nintendo Wii game "Castlevania Judgment" voiced by Keith "Zasalamel" Silverstein. Now say what you will about Simon's rather "Light Yagami"-esque fashion sense here but I don't think there was any problem with Keith's voice work for Simon. Keith Silverstein may not have been perfect for the role but his voice and overall performance worked just fine with Simon IMO.
So overall I am going with Keith Silverstein here of course.
