I'm going with a tie for Billy and John.

Chris was bleh.

I actually think that John and Billy are pretty much tied because they brought something to the character; and out of all the voices I've seen, national and international, Santiago Ziesmer comes at a VERY close second.

As much as I detest John K., he played the best Ren.

They are all good, but I would say Billy West is surprisingly my least favorite. But only by a slight margin, he's still epic in the role.

Billy West actually wasn't bad. He technically gave a superior performance, and the only reason someone would have to complain would be because it's so different from John Kricfalusi's Ren, and the voice change was a little jarring. John's Ren sounded a little like an old man at times, and while it wasn't amateur-sounding, it didn't sound as polished as Billy West. Both voices were very good though.

@voiceactorfan Countless disagreements over content and deadlines.

Both had their own wild takes on the character. John gave a great delivery, but Billy was clearly the funnier one, delivering his lines with perfect comic timing and somewhat giving a better performance as well.

@BlankSlate Well, blame it on the writers for later seasons for making Ren more of a jerk after John Kricfalusi was fired, but I think that despite the bad characterisation Billy gave the better comedic performance.

It's about time this comparison was made. :)

I still say Billy West gets too much flack for his Ren. He wasn't John K., but he brought his own inflections to his version of the character, and had great delivery/comic timing. Some of the lines in that "Insomniac Ren" clip are funny just for how Billy delivered them.

BTW, for grins and giggles, you should add the Adult Party Cartoon version of Ren. I mean, it's so different from John K.'s original Ren voice that it pretty much counts as a new voice, even though it's done by the same guy.

"It's a rather fun comparison to make because I don't think either one was better than the other. They were just different."
