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.

Lee is fine and could do much better, but Roger is a lot better in Maverick Hunter X than in Mega Man X8.

Roger Rhodes was alright in Mega Man X8. But he absolutely NAILED it in Maverick Hunter X! Very memorable performance that you can tell he's having a lot of fun doing, really.

Lee Tockar is also decent all things considered, though I get the feeling he'd probably do a lot better if he had more material to work with however.

Lee is great for what he had, I just really wish he was given more to work with since I do hear a lot of potential when I listen to the voice.

Roger sounds like he's having a lot of fun using a slimy kind of villain voice for the character, and hamming it up at the same time.

Neither's amazing but I have to give it to Roger due to having a teeny bit more to work with, though Lee is still really good for what he had.

I'd say for a future VA, I could Steve Blum having a lot of fun with this.

@skeletonking1234 Scott Mcneil or David Kaye could also work pretty well I feel if they use a canadian cast

Lee had way more lines than this. It's just the clip is short.

Roger Rhodes is just too perfect as Vile: I love that maniacal cackle he does, and his delivery is really smug-sounding as well as sinister, too.

Lee Tockar is decent, though, he also fit Vile in his own way- it's just a bit bland in comparison to Roger's performance, IMO.

Both are good:
1. Lee Tockar
2. Roger Rhodes

Roger did much better in MHX, but I'm definitely going with Lee after hearing more lines.

What I like about Roger Rhodes take is that he really adds a lot of personality to this Boba Fett clone. He sounds like a diabolical villain and having fun playing this character.

Lee Tockar is alright but plays him too robotic and machine-like for my liking.

Roger's got my vote for sure.

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.
