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