EDITOR'S OPINIONThe 1st Voice Compare for an SNK character went to the infamous Crime Boss Geese Howard so I figured it would be natural for me to do one on his right hand man Billy Kane!
In the English dubs of the 90's Fatal Fury anime he is voiced by VA Paul Dobson whom I must say is a perfectly natural choice for this role. (Well as for the accent, granted IIRC Paul Dobson is British does help.) But still Billy may not have had a lot of lines (and like his boss had a smaller role in the 2nd and a cameo in the 3rd) but still Paul Dobson's performance was indeed suiting for this role here.
Alike his Boss, Billy hasn't been voiced by an English speaking VA until recently in the KOF Maximum Impact series (the 2nd one to be precise). In that game Billy Kane is voiced by VA Marc Donovan (whom I dunno if he is related to Michael "Ryoga" Donovan or Brain "Rock Lee" Donovan) and I must say I was precisely surprised. Marc Donovan's Billy Kane voice has a slightly rough lower British accented voice and I must say it works rather well. (And while the English voice-work for the KOF MI games generally could've been better to put it mildly I would gladly take this over how Billy had an awfully high voice in most of the KOF games I have seen him in.) But still Marc Donovan's work for Billy Kane is one of the better performances in that game.
Overall I like them both but I am going with Paul Dobson the most, but Marc was surprisingly rather close.
