EDITOR'S OPINIONAh Wood Man, the original Wily Robot with a "Shield Weapon" (though the fanbase is slightly divided over whether that is a good thing or not). Anyways this Robot Master from Mega Man 2 is getting his own Voice Compare right here and now.
In the original series he was only in the episode "The Strange Island of Dr. Wily" in which he was actually voiced by Richard Newman. (Which to be honest I was actually kind of surprised as I couldn't even tell at first. But in retrospection I was starting to see it though.) While Wood Man only had like a couple of lines or so and not exactly great ones but Richard Newman's voice for Wood Man was not that bad. In fact I would even say that its one of the better features of his depiction in the show, its not one of the best performances in the show but its not the worst.
In the English dub of Mega Man NT Warrior he was voiced by VA Lee Tockar. I dunno why but his voice for Wood Man seemed kind of "off" in a way. Lee Tockar's voice for Wood Man seemed a little awkwardly goofy in a way, but to be fair at least his acting is fairly decent though. The worst I can say is that Lee was a bit of a miscast as Wood Man, his performance wasn't the worst in that dub but it wasn't the best.
Overall neither one are perfect for the role but I will say that Richard Newman was considerably closer in this regard.
