Pyron the fiery conqueror from another planet is the latest Darkstalker to appear on BTVA's VC section. Though oddly enough in both of his English voices he seems to be given a somewhat British accent.

First of all we have Richard Newman voicing Pyron in the American Darkstalkers series. But basically it was his M. Bison voice given a somewhat more British accented tone. Not a really bad idea but it does seem slightly awkward but its one of the better aspects in his depiction in that series. (Though yes I know that's not saying much...)

In the English dub of the Darkstalkers Anime he is voiced by David Kaye. However in this case it was pretty much lets take his Megatron voice but give it a somewhat heavy echo effect to alter it. But still Kaye is good at voicing elegant toned villains and this is no exception.

Both VAs did well when it came to the acting even if the voices seem a bit odd to me at first. However I think I will go with David Kaye this time around though.

David Kaye sounds epic, Richard Newman is just bland.

David Kaye, no contest. He sounds epic with those effects.

Richard Newman is a great VA, but he's very bland as Pyron.

Kaye was good, but some of his lines were extremely modulated and almost unintelligible, which really ruins it for me.

Even though Pyron was quite possibly the most pathetic character in the show (Demitri was a lot more menacing character than his boss), I still get a good laugh with this weaker incarnation. This is mainly because Richard Newman seems to be having a lot of fun with the role. It's not as awesome as his Bison performances, but it still is a good example of Newman's work.

Overall, Newman is my favorite.

David Kaye sounds cool. Man, I'm sure that Richard Newman could do better if given something better to work with.
