Voice Compare » Pokemon » Kenny (Sinnoh)

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Kenny (Sinnoh) with sound clips and images.
Kenny is a recurring supporting character in the Pokemon TV series who appeared in the Diamond and Pearl Arc in the Pokemon anime. Kenny is a coordinator in the Sinnoh region who is a friendly rival and old friend of Dawn (who he has given her the nickname "Dee Dee"). Kenny is a rather friendly boy who is not above doing some teasing but is a lot nicer about it compared to other rivals in the show and is very serious when it comes to his training (in which he was once helped by Olivine City Gym Leader Jasmine). While Kenny does not hate Ash but he was surprised that Dawn was traveling with him and has wished that Dawn would travel with him instead.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the Pokemon VC section we take a look at Dawn's friendly rival... KENNY! Let us begin...

Rhonda Krempa- Rhonda's voice for the role was pretty good as her performance for the role does suit Kenny's playful nature pretty well and is a pretty good example of the voice work in the TPCi dub of the show.

Erica Schroder- Erica's voice for the role is very good as its probably one of her better "little boy" voices (in which it does kind of sound like a slightly lower more subdued version of her Luffy voice). Erica's performance was also very good as it does suit Kenny's friendly nature rather well and is a good example of her work in the TV series.

Overall both of these ladies did pretty well with the role here but I will go with Erica a bit more here.

I hate to say this, but I don't like either one: both of Kenny's English voices grated on me-- Rhonda Krempa couldn't act at all, while having a unique voice, while Schroeder could act but her voice sounded like she had a sore throat most of the time.

You know, I'm actually changing my vote to Rhonda Krempa. Erica Schroeder's voice acting itself was a lot better, but I feel like Rhonda Krempa's voice was a lot more distinctive for Kenny. I really thought it was quite unique sounding, even it if it was a bit snobbish at times.

Erica's take reminds me of her Rai from Tai Chi Chasers, but I feel like it wasn't too much of a stretch from her other roles. Her acting was great, though.

Rhonda Krempa's acting sounds attrocious, but the voice itself is at least more unique then Erica Schroeder's take. When I hear the latter, I keep expecting Kenny to blurt out "KING OF THE PIRATES!" in an obnoxious way.

Re-watching the Sinnoh Saga, I actually prefer Rhonda Krempa's voice for Kenny, but Erica Schroeder's voice acting for Kenny. I don't know how to explain it! lol.

@OldSchoolFTW That's my thoughts too. Rhonda Kempa's voice sounds VERY convincing, but the acting is anything but. Whereas Erica performs well, but I can hear too much Luffy in that voice. XD

Erica only voiced the character one time, and I found her performance as the character must stronger than Rhonda Krempa's myself. Erica actually sounds excited and passionate in the role, albeit a bit throaty. Rhonda's voice was fine, but she was too snoobish, and her delivery was bad.

Well, much stronger, anyway.

Both voices are...decent. Alright I guess...suitable voices. Maybe that's because Kenny/Kengo isn't that interesting a character to me, though, and I've never liked his voice.

I would have to say that both voices have their faults: Krempa sounds snoobish and nasally, but seems to be a more genuine voice and higher pitched. Conversely, Schroeder sounds throaty and forced, but is not as nasally and more down-to-Earth.

I'm going to, in the end, say Schroeder fits slightly better.

1- Erica Schroeder
2- Rhonda Krempa

Rhonda sounds kinda bored and snobbish. Erica sounds realistic, energetic, and natural. So yeah, in this case I'll go for Erica.

Both were good, but yes, I have to go with Erica. She sounds much more energetic, passionate, and like a real boy.

No contest. Erica is MUCH better suited for this role. Rhonda's boy voice was weak, and her delivery was terrible.

My ranking for Kenny
1. Rhonda Krempa - Quite original sounding, she suits him quite nicely
2. Erica Schroeder - Suitable replacement, she sounds better here than in One Piece and Kappa Mikey
