Fire Emblem Fire Emblem


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Gaius with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Fire Emblem

As far as thieves go, they don't get much cooler than Gaius. He's got an easygoing nature and follows his own code of conduct. The only thing he loves more than hard gold... is candy.

Though Gaius himself only appears in Awakening, his reincarnation "Asugi" shows up in Fates.

If Ray Chase was Gaius's original VA, I don't think anyone would have any complaints at all. They bring the same laidback, cocksure confidence and sugar-lust to the role in equal parts. Yeah, Gideon gets perks for being the original, but Ray is a pretty seamless replacement.

Gideon Emery is just perfect in the role, Ray Chase however is an excellent stand in too.

Gideon Emery IS Gaius but Ray is a good stand in. I wonder if this means he'll be Keaton when he comes to Heroes (since they've always gotten one VA to cover all of a VA's parts). If so then do my boy justice Ray or else I'll put poison in your mutton and get you memed into a video game.

Thieves are usually some of my favorite characters in Fire Emblem, and Gaius is no exception.

Both of them are fantastic in the part, but I have to go with Gideon. He was the reason I fell in love with the character to begin with, and there's more to his performance to enjoy. But I definitely have to give Ray kudos for being such a perfect replacement!

Both are good, but that romantic clip from Emery is perfect.

While I do ultimately prefer their original VA's, Mike and Ray did excellent job's matching them.

Going with Gideon Emery imo. He's so awesome as Gaius, his delivery is just so smooth, laid-back, and just straight up cool and chill sounding. His lines are all delivered superbly, especially the love confession.

Ray Chase does a wonderful job as a replacement though and is just as good though giving the similar smooth delivery but slightly less youthful sounding. I still prefer Gideon slightly though since he laid down the foundation/base track for the character's voice, but Ray Chase did wonderfully at carrying that foundation. So both are fantastic, of course.

Gideon Emery is so satisfying to hear. He sounds so naturally laidback and chill. Ray Chase is a good replacement and his delivery is very similar to Gideon's , but it sounds less youthful. I'll go with Gideon Emery.

Gideon for sure. Though Ray is easily the next best thing.

Love Gaius. He's one of my favourite characters in Awakening because of how smooth, likable, and hot he is. And Gideon Emery gives him a fairly deep and laidback voice that's perfect for the "sweet loving thief"

With all that said... Ray Chase also captures those qualities rather well. And even sounds almost EXACTLY the same at times. Like in his "Yeah?" voice clip. However, I have to give my vote to Emery here. Mainly because I think his delivery of the "Sugar..." line is still more hilarious XD

Both are flawless, but Gideon has the advantage for being there first.

Both are awesome VAs and did an amazing job as Gauis, but Gideon originated the voice that goes with Gaius perfectly!

Gideon Emery takes this. Ray Chase sounds a bit deeper than Gideon, but he's the best in terms of all the replacement voices for some of the characters in Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Of all the replacement voices in Heroes, Ray Chase does the best matching of his predecessor's voice IMO. I still prefer Gideon since Ray's take is still an impression but I would've been interested to see how Gaius would sound if Ray was the original voice.

@SNaG Perhaps someone could get Ray at a convention to do his own take on Gaius's confession line from Awakening?
