Today on the Mega Man VC section we get to see this known lady from the Mega Man Legends series (whom even got her own spin-off title "Misadventures of Tron Bonne") namely this pirate whom is A.K.A "Queen of the Servbots"... TRON BONNE! In the first Mega Man Legends (and its sequel and aforementioned spin-off) Caroly Larson voiced the role of Tron Bonne and let me say she was exceptional in this role. Caroly's voice for the role was cute but certainly suited Tron's age and her performance definitely suited how emotional Tron can be especially when she is practically so "Tsundere" for Mega Man Volnutt (has highly repressed feelings for him for those who are "not in the know"). But still Caroly's performance had a rather temperamental yet highly endearing feel and is definitely one of the best performances in the Legends series.

After "Misadventures of Tron Bonne" came out in 2000, Tron Bonne (like the rest of the Mega Man Legends cast for the most part) never really had an English speaking VA until 11 years later when Tara Platt toke over the role of Tron Bonne here. I must admit I was somewhat surprised by this casting since I don't normally hear Tara do cutesy higher voices like this Tron here but she does it pretty well. Oh sure Tara's Tron Bonne voice is not quite as high as Caroly's but it still works nevertheless. While Tron is a lot calmer in this game Tara's performance in the game was able to make it still work and suit Tron's persona rather well. In fact I would go so far as to say that it's one of the reasons why its kind of a shame that the character endings in the game were not voice acted (I mean yes I know that none of the "Vs. Games" back in the 90's had voice acted endings but still). Overall both of these ladies did fine with this role, Caroly Larson's performance for the role was just plain classic while Tara Platt was a pretty good alternative as well.

Neither is perfect, but I prefer Tara Platt.

I think Caroly Larson has the edge here since she's voiced her in more games. One thing I do find amusing is how her voice reminds me of Rachel Lillis's Misty especially considering how Tron's seiyuu is Mayumi Iizuka (Misty's seiyuu).

Tara Platt I'm rather surprised they got to voice match Caroly. Usually she's more known for her lower pitch and mature sounding roles. She did mostly well all things considered, if she voiced Tron again, I'd consider switching my vote to her but for the time being Caroly gets my vote.

Though I also wouldn't mind if they got Rachel Lillis to voice Tron, I think she'd nail it for sure.

@Autovolt Gonna say, I was searching through Tara's roles, & I literally did click on this because I was re-watching Pokemon subbed, & her original actress is Kasumi (i.e. "Misty")

I find them both annoying, but Caroly less so and better acted, so she'll get my vote on this one.

Caroly Larson wasn't perfect but she was good as Tron Boone. Tara Platt sounded similar but she didn't quite to Tron Boone justice.

I personally prefer Caroly, although Tara could be just as good if not better if she got more to work with.

Gonna vote for Caroly Larson to even things up a notch, but what Tara does is quite even to Caroly's, which i applaud for that in my book.

I do admit Caroly's take does sound like Misty from Pokemon in spots. (Which makes it funnier considering in Japan she's voiced by Mayumi Iizuka who does Misty over there too).

Tough one for whos better. I might say Caroly since she got a bit more to work with.

@Starscreamsfan Shocking news, you prefer a NEWER voice

@HienFan There are lots of times I prefer newer voices and this is not an exception ;)

Lol, how in the world is Tara Platt the top pick? She's only heard with brief quotes and grunts/yells. Whereas Caroly embodied the character as a whole. Granted, Tara did sound very similar and was a worthy replacement. Still...the proof is in the pudding. =P

I'm going for the classic here: Caroly Larson rocked this role. Tara Platt, however, is a remarkably perfect imitation.

Tara deserves my vote on this one.

The only thing I like about Platt's Tron is that it made it ridiculously easy to figure out who would have voiced Aero in a certain cancelled Mega Man title.

They both sound fairly similar to each other, but no, Tara Platt does not sound more natural. How can you really even come to that conclusion? She's grunting and shouting fighting game phrases, while Caroly Larson acted more. Is it a perfect voice? No, but I think it's three times as enjoyable and distinct than Tara Platt's.

If Tara reprises the roll maybe she can change my opinion, but no, I'm not picking her fairly generic take over the original Caroly Larson, who shows much more range and honestly doesn't sound as forced as Tara's where her high pitched bubbliness was taken too far, and she just sounds generic.

Caroly Larson's acting wasn't perfect, no one had perfect acting in the Legend series, but it was darn good for it's time and the personality she gives the character is simply unmatched when compared with Tara Platt.

@PsychicVoiceSpy You're much harder on Tara Platt than I am, but I have to agree with this sentiment.
said at 8:42 AM on Sat Oct 5 2013
@Galactic_Cyrus Truth be told; I didn't think quite as low of Tara as I made it seem, I was just a little annoyed because I felt people here were disregarding Caroly Larson and just going for Tara because she's more experienced and established (and more popularity). Megaman Legends is one of THE quintessential games of my childhood, and I'm somewhat protective of it because of that. I would hate to see anyone just sorta disregard something from my childhood that I hold fondly just because some new, more popular VA cam along and did it... This all probably sound very paranoid and I assure you that bias didn't influence my vote, but I'm just explaining why I seemed a little annoyed with Tara Platt. Nothing personal to her at all, just trying to defend my childhood here... maybe a little needlessly, but still. Haha.

@PsychicVoiceSpy *popular *came *sounding (Wow, my brain.)

@PsychicVoiceSpy No, it's okay. Tara might do a great or even better job with the voice, but Caroly Larson originated it and her performance should not ever be ignored.

Tara Platt sounds a bit more natural but both do a wonderful job.

Both ladies were absolutely wonderful, but I'm going with Tara Platt; she sounds less grating and more natural, and she's a great voice actress, not to mention one of the best of MvC3.

Wow, and I just remembered, due to hearing her voice as Tron in MVC3...

at a Sacanime convention, I told her I picked her as Cirno from Touhou Project XD
said at 12:58 PM on Wed Sep 28 2011
The first time I've heard Tron's voice in MvC3, I partly though her voice was done by Katie Griffin. I don't know. To me, it sounds like it was her voice.
