Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Lady with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Devil May Cry

Lady is a devil hunter who appears as a recurring character in the Devil May Cry series. Debuting in Devil May Cry 3, she's depicted as a bounty hunter who despises demons, due to a strong sense of morality and hatred for how her father became corrupted by Sparda. With a passionate personality and drive, she acts as a rival to Dante, but then eventually learns that no matter how inhumane they seem, even devils cry.

For Devil May Cry 3, Lady was motion-captured by Stephanie Cheeva, with her voice dubbed by Kari Wahlgren due to her strong Bulgarian accent. Kari Wahlgren reprised the role for the original release of Devil May Cry 4, but with the game's later Special Edition release in 2015 where Lady was made a playable character, all of her dialogue was rerecorded by Kate Higgins.

My vote easily goes to Kari Wahlgren. She did a great job of portraying Lady's range, from seriousness to biting sarcasm to fiery passion. She has the benefit too of getting to play Lady in DMC3, when she had the most screentime and was the most fleshed-out character, while in DMC4 Lady plays more of a supporting role. Melissa Davis's take in the anime isn't bad at all, but I definitely feel that Kari Wahlgren is the most memorable.

Yup this one goes straight to Kari hands down. The game really fleshes out her character and as we go through the story she goes through a vary of emotions. The acting from her is very authentic. By far one of the best performances in DMC3

Kate Higgins is pretty good also. While not as good as Kari it's worthy of second place.

Melissa Davis's performance was something I could never get into. It sounds off. I feel someone from Funimations talent pool could have done this role a lot better.

Kari Wahlgren really has a lot of depth and emotion. I really love how much passion and energy she adds to the role.

Kate Higgins is cool, but a little bit snobbish. However, her delivery is quite solid.

Melissa Davis sounds neat, but her delivery is very off at times, makes Lady sound a little bit airheaded.

Man, it's been so long since I last played through DMC3 that I forgot just how good Kari was.

Yeah, Kari takes this easily. Devil May Cry 3 easily had the best story and most memorable voice acting of the series, and her performance here is a prime example of that.

Neither Kate Higgins nor Melissa Davis come close to her performance, but if I had to pick between the two of them, I'd say Kate is better. Melissa sounds like she has a stuffy nose on some lines and comes off a bit ditzy. It doesn't help that her lines are poorly written and make the character come of as kind of stupid in general. That show is awful...

Hopefully Lady and Kari return whenever Devil May Cry 5 gets made.
