Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Rarity with sound clips and images.
Franchise: My Little Pony

"Rarity" is the name shared by what are essentially two separate characters; the only trait shared between the two besides their name is the fact that they are both unicorns.

In the Generation 3 direct-to-video features, Rarity is a young and naive unicorn who is responsible for summoning the first rainbow of spring. In Friendship is Magic, Rarity is a fashion designer whose generosity is such that she does whatever it takes to make sure that her clients' orders are satisfactorily fulfilled, even if it may be to her own detriment.

Since these are two very different personalities we're dealing with, your opinion really comes down to which version of the character you prefer. So as for my opinion, let me just say that what I've seen of G3 Rarity really doesn't have a lot going for it beyond "young and naive", though Weseluck voices the part competently enough. Germain's performance, on the other hand, has infinitely more range in comparison, though it helps that this version of Rarity actually has a personality to work with. My vote's easily going with Germain here.

Cathy is ok if a little plain and generic so obviously Tabitha takes the cake here. She has everything from the accent, to the femininity, to the emotion, everything that makes this Rarity absolutely FABULOUS!

Tabitha St. Germain is just fabulous as Rarity. Her posh/English accent is simply divine and the performance and characterization is top notch. She really helped made Rarity my favourite pony on the show.

Kazumi Evans, she's not on here but her signing voice for Rarity is wonderful. Initially she didn't have the accent that Tabitha used so even though it was well sung Rarity's song, it was very noticeable it wasn't Tabitha, though in the more recent seasons she now uses the accent and sounds spot on! Phenomenal singing voice and voice match for Tabitha. I'm glad Kazumi is starting to get more major roles now.

Cathy Weseluck....oh the irony that FiM Spike voiced G3 Rarity. Sadly I really don't care for her rendition I'm afraid.

I don't have to question this one, Tabitha St. Germain gets my vote.

Cathy Weseluck's version does sound interesting, but my vote goes to Tabitha St. Germain.

Just a question, but since Flutterguy's singing voice is part of the compare for him(her?), shouldn't Kazumi Evans be included here for Rarity?

Cathy's voice is....ugh. As much as I love Cathy, this performance is just...ugh. Her high pitch and lisp make this sound incredibly annoying, and sometimes she sounds like Spike. 2/10

Tabitha, like many of the actresses for the mane 6, make this character all their own. Tabitha's accent and flamboyance just make this arguably one of the most entertaining of the mane 6 performances. 8.5/10

Funny how the new Spike was the old Rarity. XD But new Rarity wins out here.

@Galactic_Cyrus Perhaps we see now the reason for his obsession?

Good point. The characters are very different Raritys
But I prefer Tabby's Rarity because I enjoy its personality and voice in general a little better

It's hard to judge them because they are so different, They both did a good job for their character's personality.

How could I NOT vote for my beloved Tabitha?

Cathy is good. Kinda funny how she got cast as Spike in the new series :P
Tabitha is just bursting with talent. She voices so many different characters, and so well!

Heck Rarity's old voice actor even sounds like a baby SPike

I've heard how Germain voice several characters on MLP, but I prefer Weseluck with this one. I just don't find FiM interesting nor cute at all.
said at 7:22 AM on Sun Aug 14 2011
I think it's interesting how Weseluck went on to voice Spike, of whom is in love with Rarity
said at 2:31 PM on Sun Aug 14 2011

It's awesome, isn't it? And Tabitha was also a previous voice actress in the MLP series.
said at 3:46 AM on Sat Sep 17 2011
@Curt It most certainly is awesome and she does better as Spike.
said at 1:12 AM on Wed Mar 21 2012
@Curt I never thought about it but yeah it is!
