Voice Compare » Mortal Kombat » Quan Chi

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Quan Chi with sound clips and images.
Quan Chi is one of the prominent villains of the Mortal Kombat series whom actually made his debut in one episode of the Mortal Kombat Defenders of the Realm animated series (but made his video game debut in Mortal Kombat 4). Quan Chi is a powerful Sorcerer and Necromancer from the Netherrealm whom is not only known for being a powerful Sorcerer but has a treacherous streak a mile wide. Quan Chi is very much an opportunist whom will ally with anyone whom can further his own goals as he has deceived many characters in the series. Quan Chi is also the leader of the Brotherhood of Shadow, the Netherrealm cult that worships the fallen Elder God Shinnok.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the Mortal Kombat VC section we take a look at this infamous sorcerer from the Netherrealm... QUAN CHI! We will begin with Mortal Kombat Defenders of the Realm (where he actually appeared in first surprisingly enough) and was in one episode voiced by Nick Chinlund. In retrospection its slightly odd on how Nick's Quan Chi voice is more of a moderate tone (where its not a particularly high voice but it only seems like that compared to how deep he sounded in the games) but strangely enough I actually don't mind that too much. Nick's performance is fairly suiting for a demonic schemer as it does have a fairly sinister feel to it. Granted Nick's work as Quan Chi is somewhat above average in general but it is a decent fit for the role and a good example of the voice work in the series.

In the Mortal Kombat series ever since Mortal Kombat 4, Richard Divizio (whom appeared in all of the original 2-D Mortal Kombat games) got to voice Quan Chi here. I suppose I can understand the idea of Quan Chi having a deeper voice but the vocal effects that were used for Richard's Quan Chi voice here did seem a little strange at first but it does kind of grow on me a bit. However I will say this much on how Richard's performance as Quan Chi is actually pretty good as it does suit Quan Chi's treacherous nature well (Richard's performance as Quan Chi was one of the better performances in Mortal Kombat 4 for example). So in other words Richard's work as Quan Chi was alright in general but its one of the better performances in the earlier MK games when the series went to 3-D.

Now for Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe (and Mortal Kombat 9) in which the MK series is starting to use Californian VA talent and Ronald M Banks gets to take over the role here. Ronald's voice for the role is fairly deep but it does feel a bit more natural (even if he can be a little inconsistent with the pitch). But still Ronald's performance was rather suiting for the opportunistic schemer as his work has an elegant though rather sinister feel which is a rather good fit for the role here and is a rather good example of the voice work in those games. Overall all 3 of them are pretty good in their own way but I suppose I will go with Ronald M Banks the most here.

Admittedly I don't like Quan Chi very much, but this isn't about favourites and least favourites, this is about voices, so lets get started.

Nick Chinlund is alright, sounds a bit high pitched and decrepit, but I'm not sure if it would fit him in the current games.

...Huh...I clicked on the Mortal Kombat 4 soundclip expecting the worst, but Richard Divizio actually isn't that bad. He has a really cool sounding voice and the effects really help out his performance, it sounds really low pitched and echoed which I really like. While the acting could use some work he has by far the best performance in the game and I cannot believe I am saying that, given the horrible performances I've heard from the other characters so far in that game. Good job Richard, good job, give yourself a pat on the back.

Ronald M Banks sounds really great, is it just me or does he sort of sound like Christopher Lee? Even still it sounds deep, imposing and menacing, I really like it, even if I don't care for the character very much.

So yeah, Ronald M Banks gets my vote, but Richard Divizio is an entertaining and surprising close second, as for Nick Chinlund...ehhh...I dunno, I liked it at first, but after hearing the other two voices I don't really care for it much but its not a bad performance I guess...still, he's a somewhat distant third.

I thought Mark Hamill voiced Quan Chi on Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm.
