Helmeppo is the bratty son of former marine Captain Axe-Hand Morgan. Now serving in the marines with Coby under the command of Vice Admiral Garp.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Sean Schemmel's and Troy Baker's "version" of Helmeppo was when he was a spoiled, bratty and somewhat confidant person. Both voice actors do a good job playing the character's superiority complex. Mike McFarland plays the "version" of the character when he is training in the marines; struggling and suffering. IMO he does a great job playing Helmeppo for these kind of scenes. I thought all three voice actors did good work so I'm undecided which I like best since I liked them all.

@OldSchoolFTW Agreed. Well, Troy and Sean sort of tie, but Mike is definitely weakest.

@Gekko_Amario Actually Sean was in the 4Kids version, in fact he is now based in NYC though he does still occasionally work for Funimation.

@MrParadox He also mentioned at a couple conventions recently that he's apparently making the move to LA.

Troy's definitely the best, sounding more crazy, and more unlikable. Though Mike was a decent alternative. It's a shame Troy was unavailable to record those episodes...

Oh, and Sean sounded a bit hammy for my tastes.

@PurpleWarrior13 Isn't Helmeppo SUPPOSED to be sort of hammy?

@Galactic_Cyrus There needs to be a balance between ham and seriousness in this character. I think Troy got that balance down. Sean sounded nothing but hammy, and Mike sounded too silly. I don't blame Sean for his performance though. Pretty much every voice in the 4Kids version was pretty hammed up, making it hard to take the show seriously.

@PurpleWarrior13 The seriousness mainly comes after the first arc he's featured in, doesn't it? I recall Helmeppo being goofy and exaggerated for all of his damn near screen time in the first arc, even when he's threatening a kid with a gun. For that, Sean's take really worked. Plus, the clip doesn't get to when Sean starts screaming at the top of his lungs, which he's REALLY good at doing.

@Galactic_Cyrus There were times when the character was really supposed to be angry or threatening. It's very difficult to sound threatening while sounding like a hammy jerk, but Troy did it. Sean wasn't awful, but there was no balance, much like the whole dub. :P

I believe Helmeppo only appears in the episodes with Koby after that first arc, not sure. Mike's voice worked for those, I guess, but it does bring back some overt silliness and wouldn't have worked in the character's original episodes with Troy.

@PurpleWarrior13 I get what you're saying there. I know Sean COULD have balanced being cartoonish and threatening at the same time, but the 4Kids dub didn't really allow for that. So Troy does edge out for me, but Schemmel's take is VERY close to me.

What happened to Troy after the Captain Morgan arc?

@MatthewC17 They wanted to make Helmeppo sound "tougher" as he was serving with Coby in the marines. Hence Mike McFarland taking over.

Sean Schemmel's was definitely fitting when Helmeppo was whiny, bratty and weak. Troy Baker was a very convincing alternative though.

Schemmel and Baker are equally great in this role. McFarland's version was a little bit TOO grating for me.

McFarland's is slightly too cracked and Schemmel's is slightly too loosed. It was hard for me to notice at first, but Troy Baker strikes a great balance between the two.
