Today on the Mega Man VC section we have this flamboyant pretty-boy from the Mega Man Legends series... GLYDE! Believe it or not we shall start this off with the Mega Man Legends Spin-off the Misadventures of Tron Bonne where he was initially voiced by Michael Daingerfield. (Apparently this was early in Michael's career back when he was doing voice work in Toronto compared to today where he is working in Vancouver.) Michael's voice for the role does work pretty well here as his performance does suit Glyde's rather arrogant personality pretty well. I admit its not one of the most memorable performances in the Mega Man Legends series but it is a good example of the voice work in the series anyways.

In Mega Man Legends 2 for some reason Michael Daingerfield wasn't able to reprise the role as Glyde so Toby Proctor gets to take over and he is a pretty good alternative here. Toby's voice for the role is somewhat higher than Michael's but I am not complaining as it still does work pretty well for Glyde here. Anyways Toby's performance was also rather fitting for Glyde's arrogance as well though Toby's voice for Glyde does sound a bit more snobby though. To be honest while I don't think that Toby's performance as Glyde was better than Michael's I don't think it was worse either.

Believe it or not out of all the characters from the Mega Man Legends series to receive a Battle Network version and be a remotely recurring character is Glyde. (However the Battle Network version is a bit of a departure since alike Gutsman and Ice Man the ".exe" version is a good guy instead of a villain. But to be fair when it comes to style its not all that much of a departure since the only strong difference is that this version of Glyde wears a helmet.) Anyways in the English release of the first Mega Man Battle Network anime a.k.a "Mega Man NT Warrior" Ted Cole voices Glyde.exe in the series' English dub. While Glyde.exe's personality may be rather different from his Legends counterpart, Ted Cole's voice and performance definitely respects Glyde's roots as a pretty boy with an elegant and flamboyant sense of style. While I admit I wouldn't go so far as to say its one of Ted's best performances but it is still a very good example of his work nevertheless. Overall all of these guys did pretty well for this role in their own ways so I am not sure who to pick this time.

Michael is my favorite here.

Micheal Dangerfield is the one who sounds the most natural here IMO. That being said, I think Ted Cole's voice is pretty charming too and really fits the .EXE version of Glyde.

Toby Proctor is... wow. I'm not gonna say he's a bad VA in general but he was not a good casting choice for this character or Tuxedo Mask in the slightest honestly.

But yes, giving my vote to Daingerfield.

I've changed my mind on Toby's voice here actually, he's still not as solid as Dangerfield to me. But overall his performance has grown on me here, and I'd even say this is the voice he "should" have used for Tuxedo Mask honestly.

I kind of prefer Ted Cole. I think the polite butler is a bit more memorable than being a pretty boy bishonen. I think he could have made an excellent Perceptor with this voice.

Though of the two bishonen versions of Glyde, Michael Daingerfield Hall is definitely the better one of the two.

Toby Proctor once again continues to deliver the cheese. He just sounds too dorky for this character.

Ted's got my vote.

Michael Daingerfield owns this role but Ted Cole is almost as good.

actually, I think that Erik Davies would be spot on as Glyde(both versions).

And somehow Toby managed to spread his cheesy voice for Glyde as well...

I prefer Ted Cole

Mike Pollock would be perfect as Glyde.

Michael Dangerfield Hall is the only one that doesn't sound in any way stereotypical, so he gets my vote.
