EDITOR'S OPINION

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.

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.

I find out that the Devil May Cry chronological order is:
1. Devil May Cry 3
2. Devil May Cry
3. Devil May Cry 4
4. Devil May Cry 2
Which to me looks really bizarre.

@Mrguy22594 What does this have to do with the voice compare?

@PsychicVoiceSpy I don't honestly know and I just thought to get that bit out of the way before I decide. Obivously Rueben Langdon/Ken.

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.

Can't wait to see all the hate Tim Phillipps gets once he's added.

@TheTrueYuma No need to worry; Tim Phillips won't be added since DMC Dante and DmC Dante are in different CharGens.

@NCZ I'm pretty sure he still counts since the differences are mostly, if not completely, cosmetic. That's what I've heard anyway.

@TheTrueYuma You mean the people who say "omg guys u only haet dmc because of the hair!!!" Yeah. I don't know where to begin with how different DmC Dante is. The only thing they have in common is the name.

@NCZ Hey, if David Kaye can be compared with the other Optimuses, then it's only fair that Tim Phillips should be compared with the other Dantes. He really is still Dante. The only difference, besides voice, is that he's a punk rocker.

@TheTrueYuma Multiple characters sharing the same name doesn't mean anything. By that logic, does BTVA add the Aqua Man from Mega Man NT Warrior to the DC superhero Aquaman's VC?

No they don't. They are not related, let alone one in the same. That's why there are (at least) four different Green Lantern VCs (Hal, John, Kyle, Guy) and Robin VCs (Dick, Tim, and two others whose names I can't remember). DmC Dante is a totally different character.

@TheTrueYuma Not to mention, Animated Prime is quite blatantly meant to be Optimus Prime. Aside from the fact that he's younger, it's obviously the same character, same personality, filling the same role. It's no different from all the other interpretations of Prime throughout the multiverse, so it'd be ridiculous if we didn't include it. DmC Dante is clearly not the same character as DMC Dante.

@pokemastanumba1 Well, that one's obviously a more extreme case, considering the two Aquamen are from different companies and are obviously entirely different characters (MM Aquaman isn't a superhero, etc. etc.). Whatever the case, I'm not adding DmC Dante.

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.

Matthew Kaminsky has a great voice for Dante.
Reuben Langdon plays a great young Dante.
He also voiced and did the motion capture for Dante in Devil May Cry 4.
Drew is good, and established the voice of Dante.
Even though Reuben is a great actor, I think that MAtthew has a better adult Dante voice. Not saying his acting is better, just his voice.
