Voice Compare » Devil May Cry » Dante

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Dante with sound clips and images.
Dante is the protagonist of Devil May Cry. He is the son of the demon Sparda and specializes in paranormal mercenary work.

Drew Coombs voiced Dante for the first DMC game and for Viewtiful Joe. Matthew Kaminsky took over in Devil May Cry 2, and Reuben Langdon is the current voice of Dante, starting with Devil May Cry 3.

All three of these VAs were suitable and gave good performances. I'm mostly in favour of Reuben Langdon, but Drew and Matthew were also just fine.

Coombs was good... but the direction (and writing) was what let him down. Seriously I saw his work in live action, he's goooood!

Kaminsky... similar deal with Coombs really.

But then you get Langdon! This guy fits Dante very well. Though I'm glad he's doing other stuff and more, GOD I hope they bring back THIS version of Dante again! Reubon is just too good!

Reuben dominated this role for sure

Why isn't Tim Phillips in this comparison? I know someone will say it's because he's the voice of the reboot Dante from Dmc Devil May Cry, but look at the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Just because that Dante is from a different continuity from the other Dante, doesn't mean he's still not Dante from the Devil May Cry franchise.

@TrueMyriad What does Sonic have to do with this?
said at 8:34 AM on Thu May 8 2014
@NCZ I think his argument is that all the Sonics are in the Sonic voice compare, despite having been rebooted and remade and shown in many different storylines.
But the thing with Sonic is, it's always the same character. Dante in DmC is a completely different character.

@RenoRebirth I see what you mean. Thanks for explaining my point though. Next time I'll think before I write a long drawn out paragraph about my opinions, but thanks a lot though Reno

@Music Meister
It's not that he is considered a different character, DmC Dante IS a different character.
DmC Dante is not even the same species as the original.

Drew Coombs sounds a little stiff here and there, and his voice is a bit generic "anti-hero with attitude", and yes, he had a few hammy moments. However... I thought he sounded pretty darn good for the time. He performed Dante's "hero with attitude" parts very well, his emotional scenes (even though they were a bit on the hammy side) were actually pretty effective, and he gave an all around solid performance. He did justice to both Dante's wise-cracking, pissed half-demon anti-hero exterior as well Dante's softer compassionate side.

Matthew Kaminsky isn't bad either. He probably would have been much better had Devil May Cry 2 not been such a stale follow up and he had better dialogue to work with. He sounds like an older Reuben Langdon.

Reuben Langdom fits into the part just as well as Drew Coombs. I've never found his voice-work to be particularly impressive, but he really got Dante's self-absorbed, wise-cracking attitude (which is partially to hide that he's lonely and grief stricken because of his family situation and in life in general) better than either Coombs or Matthew.

I would probably say it's a tie between Reuben and Drew, but since Reuben Langdon has had more time with the role, playing both a younger and older Dante, and that he's refined it with two games and a twelve episode series, I have to give it to him.

The voice clip used for Reuben Langdon's Dante doesn't really show his range at all if anything a better clip should be used. Matthew Kaminsky and Drew Coombs are about on par with each other while Reuben Langdon is a decent Dante but doesn't real stand well with the other two.

@IAMTHEVASTUNIVERSE I hate to admit it, but I've never actually played the Devil May Cry games. XD I basically grabbed the first clip I found. You're welcome to suggest a new one.
