Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Tuxedo Mask with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Sailor Moon

Tuxedo Mask, also known as Mamoru Chiba, is the lead male character in the Sailor Moon franchise. As Mamoru, he acts as the down-to-earth boyfriend of Usagi. As Tuxedo Mask, he acts as an ally of Sailor Moon (throwing roses and giving heroic chants). On the Moon Kingdom, he was known as Endymion, and is Usagi's future husband. The other Sailor Scouts look up to him as well.

In the original English dub from DiC and Optimum Productions, "Darien" was first voiced by Rino Romano in one of his earlier roles (before going on to voice iconic characters like Spider-Man and Batman). He voiced "Darien"/Tuxedo Mask in only 11 episodes before leaving to pursue other opportunities.

Toby Proctor took over the role in Episode 12, and stayed in the role throughout the rest of the English season, ending at Episode 65 (mid-way through Sailor Moon R).

Vince Corazza took over the role on Episode 66, after previously voicing "Alan". This recast occurred after a two-year hiatus, and Toby Proctor wasn't able to return to the role (it's been reported that he left over a pay dispute). Vince Corazza voiced "Darien" / Tuxedo Mask for the rest of Sailor Moon R, as well as all 3 movies. He later went on to reprise the role for the remaining English seasons: Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon SuperS, becoming most well-known in the role.

In Sailor Moon Crystal and the uncut redub of the original anime franchise from Viz Media and Studiopolis, Mamoru/Tuxedo Mask is voiced by Robbie Daymond.

Robbie Daymond is the perfect (and I really do mean perfect) Tuxedo Mask pulling both both the heroic and jerk side really well while having a passionate, intelligent vibe making him one of the best performances in the Viz era.

In terms of the Canadian faces Vincent Corazza's the best of the bunch playing him off as cool and playful while also sounding very distinct.

Rino Romano's also a decent fit though his acting could be off at points and he really didn't have the greatest time with the character to fully fit the role.

And Toby Proctor sounds unbelievably goofy in the role making Tuxedo Mask sound like a complete dumbass.

@RetroPokeFan Yep. Toby Proctor honestly sounds more like an abridged parody voice here tbh. Which is a shame because he probably would have fit a lot better had he been directed to use something closer to his Glyde, IMO.

1. Robbie Daymond- He sounds very heroic as Tuxedo Mask and can also play off the jerk side of Mamoru. His voice is perfect for the role.
2. Vincent Corazza- He is the best "Darien" voice. He sounds down-to-earth and also pretty heroic as well. Very distinct voice.
3. Rino Romano- He does a pretty good with both Darien and Tuxedo Mask, but something about his acting is a little off. I do like how he makes Tuxedo Mask sound mysterious.
4. Toby Proctor- He sounds very too goofy for the role and he overacts a lot of his lines.

No issue with Rino Romano or Vincent Corazza's performances, they're both pretty good (between those two, I prefer Vincent's take since it's more consistent in both forms), but Robbie Daymond has really grown on me for some reason- I agree with Autovolt that he has a really heroic, passionate, intelligent vibe to both of his performances as Tuxedo Mask and Mamoru Chiba, easily one of the strongest performances in the recent Viz dub of the Series.

Toby Proctor sounds like a completely obnoxious dork to me in Mamoru form, unfortunately, easily the weakest of the group- he sounded decent as Tuxedo Mask, though, for what it's worth.

1. Vincent Corazza -He nails it for sure! He gives Darien a cool, playful, and likable voice IMO. He also sounds the most distinctive as Galactic_Cyrus said!

2. Rino Romano - He's also a pretty good fit, and I like him a lot as a VA so I was happy to see him here.He just isn't AS solid as Vincent is to me.

3. Robbie Daymond - I know he's a lot of people's favourites here, but IDK he just makes the character sound kinda generic to me. Perhaps he'll grow on me in the future? Either way he's still better than...

4. Toby Proctor - He just sounds like a goofy, unlikable twat I'm sorry. Maybe this take would work better for a different kind of character. But not here though.

@HylianBelmont If someone told me that Vic Mignogna voiced Tuxedo Mask in the Viz dub when I had no info instead I would be inclined to agree

Robbie all the way. The Viz redub is generally known to be better than the old dub, and to me, Mamoru is no exception.

Here are my thoughts

Rino I thought did a good job capturing Mamoru
Immature side but that's it other than that I could nottake him seriously.

Toby I thought had a fitting voice but its clear he could work under bad direction I found his dark Endimyion take very cringeworthy

I like Robbie and Vince equally
Both imo capture everything about Mamoru perfectly. Vince was a able to give a good performance even under bad direction I wish he was hired from the get go and voiced Tuexdo Mask from the get go instead of being the third actor. I wish Vince voiced Dark Endyimon. Viz did a great job withRobbie he is smooth,immature, serious,fatherly ,mysterious and his Dark Endyimon take is what won me over I thought he captured Tuxedo Masks Dark Side perfectly. I would choose Robbie if I have to decide between him and Vince

I think I'm split between Robbie and Vincent! Both have that handsome, cool voice that Mamoru. They sound passionate and intelligent for the character, but also can be playful when teasing Usagi(which are my favorite parts of the show)

I still believe the best voice for Tuxedo Mask will always be Toru Furuya but of the English voices I've got to give this to Robbie Daymond.

It was a really risky idea to cast a relatively unknown VA/newcomer like Robbie Daymond but I think it turned out really nicely. He sounds maybe a bit lighter than Toru Furuya but he sounds really cool, suave, passionate and heroic but can also sound like a bit of a dick at times. He has a couple of off sounding moments in the Viz dub of the first season but in Sailor Moon R he really improved and now he just nails the character perfectly.

Rino Romano was pretty good at the time, though I feel he pulls off Mamoru/Darien far better than Tuxedo Mask. His Tuxedo Mask sounded kinda off to me, which is a shame since I know he could have done this role so much better.

Toby Proctor definitely was the worst English voice for Tuxedo Mask. He sounds way too gooberish and cheesy in the role, he makes Mamoru/Darien and Tuxedo Mask sound like a total dork and not at all that cool suave protector and will they won't they love interest that he's suppose to be.

Vincent Corazza was definitely the best of the original dub voices for Tuxedo Mask, he actually sounds cool and suave and for the most part pulls off Mamoru/Darien and Tuxedo Mask off nicely and his voice is really distinct for the role too which is nice.

So overall I'm going with Robbie Daymond but I do like Vincent Corazza in the role too.

Also I think had Ocean ever dubbed Sailor Moon, Kirby Morrow would have been absolutely perfect in the role.

Robbie Daymond does the best job as him.

I think Rino is second best, actually- Vincent's kinda deeper than I'd like, but Toby is the weakest for me.

Robbie Daymond all the way.

All 3 of the old voices felt miscast in some way. I think Vincent was probably the best out of them, with Toby the worst IMO. (weird deliveries and he always sounded the most jerkish out of all of them. Even when the character was supposed to be more likable...)
said at 11:52 PM on Tue Mar 10 2015
Robbie Daymond actually sounds pretty good now that I heard more but I still love Vincent's rich unique voice so Rino can go down with Robbie second but I still prefer Cloverway's dub

I'm probably gonna enjoy more from Robbie Daymond playing Tuxedo Mask as oppose to the other VAs honestly.

I dunno how Toby could voice Tuxedo Mask as long as he did when he sounds cheesier than a Pizza truck on ADHD

Rino is better of the two before Vincent but Vincent is the best of the three he's pretty distinct and I love distinct voices
said at 8:09 PM on Wed Dec 25 2013
Toby sounds a bit obnoxious rather than a teaser and his Tuxedo Mask sounded real rude and arrogant rather than a friendly ally to me.

However, I think Rino was the best as the youthful Darien but not as Tuxedo. He fit Darien's bullish but young personality a lot better than his Tuxedo-Mask though. (It sounded corny and not as mysterious Vincent did it.)

I like Vincent's Tuxedo Mask a bit more so for sounding classy like a gentlemen with his slightly more posh while posh tone. He just has bad lines.

If these two were to combine we'd have the character down. I mean its just silly if Darien and Tuxedo sound exactly the same, it makes the fact that the girls took so long to figure out who he was more silly.

Vince is the most distinctive as Darien, though his Tuxedo Mask got a bit cheesier in the S and Super S dubs. Rino Romano was a good fit too, but I couldn't see him lasting as the character past the early days. Toby...he was REALLY forced in the role, and the voice was too light and whiny.
said at 2:04 PM on Tue Jun 18 2013
My favorite is Rino Romano, Vincent Corazza being second. You know who would be perfect to take over the role in the remake? Vic Mignogna! This year at A-Kon, he announced that in Sailor Moon (being one of his favorites back in the day) he wants to play Tuxedo Mask. Many fans agreed and are now fighting to have their voices heard at Funimation. Vic for Tuxedo Mask!

@AmandaM6 10 seconds? He was Alan the whole time!

I dont understand why Vincent gets all the praise? I cant even tell if his tuxedo mask is good because by the time he took on the character he was already a pointless sue. Tobys darien is a very young playful darien. Vincent might of been technically good but he was just sooo bland. I grew up with both but Toby is the one i will carry with me forever.
said at 8:50 PM on Sun Oct 6 2013
@Supersqueak Toby's Darien was REALLY forced in my opinion. Listen to when Darien sees Serena transform. ("Serena's SAILOR MOOOON!") or when he gets injured by Zoisite soon after (very unconvincing "Aaaaah!"s). Or worse yet, him as brainwashed, evil Prince Darien. Lines that should have been delivered soft and low were nearly shouted or delivered normally. He was just all wrong. Vince played the part better.
said at 3:08 AM on Sun Sep 23 2012
Rino. Toby's voice just doesn't sound right to me.
Vincent did a good job as Darien though, his Tuxedo Mask is over the top.
said at 1:59 PM on Wed Aug 8 2012
Toby. Always, always Toby. When they switched, they could've at least found a voice actor who hadn't already had a major role using the exact voice (Alan). Urgh!

@Morikumo Vince's Darien sounds nothing like his Alan.

I don't think I'm able to choose between the trio. I liked them all. I liked Toby's insulting Usagi that's always classic. Vince did give a good portrayal of Mamoru as the BF with compassion and gentleness but him as Tuxedo Mask was... hmm while it was suitable it wasn't my cup of tea as Toby's Tuxedo Mask. Romano's Tuxedo has that mysterious vibe which is perfect during those episodes who knows how he would of portrayed him once Mamoru was awakened.
said at 11:43 AM on Fri May 11 2012
goodness, I think I got them confused again. Oh well, judging by these clips I prefer Vince better but he done the S and SuperS seasons and I didn't like his voice in those but I liked his voice in the R season. That makes no sense. I was sure Vince was the second voice..
said at 6:59 PM on Wed Jun 13 2012
@dreamer If it'll make it easier for you:

Rino Romano: Eps. 1-11
Toby Proctor: Eps. 12-65 (mid-R)
Vince Corazza: Eps. 66-159, Movies
said at 11:38 AM on Fri May 11 2012
Vincent! I always get him confused with Toby as they sound very similar but I can distinguish them a bit better now than I used to. All I tell myself is that I prefer his second voice after his first one and I love his voice in the films. So that is how I know I like Vincent best (he is not too bad on the eyes either lol)

I thought Toby Proctor did a brilliant job with the break-up scene in Cosmetic Caper. That said, Vince did a better job as Darien/Tuxedo Mask.
