Ah Vile the man with a rather "Boba Fett" look and a known villain in the Mega Man X series.

His English Voice Acting debut came in through the US Mega Man Animated Series with the only episode he was in namely "Mega X", in which he was voiced by VA Lee Tockar. Lee lets just say was probably not the best choice for this infamously treacherous foe all things considered. But Lee Tockar's handiwork was not that bad as it was at least fairly fitting.

Next up we have Roger Rhodes who is nowadays been voicing Vile since MMX8 and its... okay, the voice could have been a bit lower but all things considered it could have been worse.

So neither voice is exactly all that perfect but out of these two I think I am going to go with Lee Tockar a bit more.

Roger definitely wins this, his slimy, cocky voice is perfect for the egotistical, hateful, deranged Vile. Lee sounds decent (The filter is a nice touch), but he doesn't hold a candle to Roger.

Wow, Lee Tockar is actually really good

Lee Tockar, without a doubt, nails the sound and style of the character. Paired with some great lines and delivery in the episode, "Mega X", he really brought to life a character who we've only seen speak in text in the games. I also believe the electronic filter gives it that special touch that accentuates his "hidden face" while adding a splash of menace.

When Vile returned in Mega Man X8, the laugh is the first thing we heard, and it was very suitable. It had a similar sound to Lee's interpretation in my ears, but the speaking was a bit higher in pitch with a little more "ego". Regardless, it fit the character, and Rhodes did him justice. My only gripe would be that it would sound even better with that sinister filter applied. Maybe next time. =)

Roger gets my vote for his performance in Maverick Hunter X. Puts his X8 work and Tockar's Vile to shame.

Roger sounded really crazy in Maverick Hunter X so he earns my vote.

I would vote for Lee Tockar but if he had more lines I would've chosen him as the better voice.

Roger has more range, so I voted for him. I actually like Lee's voice for Vile, but he doesn't seem too expressive.

Why is Lee's clip so short?
Anyway I like Tockar's approach, Rhodes comes more off as generic than anything else

I'm voting for Roger Rhodes, but Lee Tockar is really good too, which surprises me since I've heard nothing but bad things about his Vile.

Roger definitely improved in Maverick Hunter X, so I don't think that the clip of him here does him justice.
