Sailor Moon Sailor Moon

Voice Compare » Sailor Moon » Tuxedo Mask

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Tuxedo Mask with sound clips and images.
Tuxedo Mask AKA Darien Shields/Mamoru Chiba is the lead male character in the Sailor Moon franchise. As Darien / Mamoru, he acts as the down-to-earth boyfriend of Serena/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 Prince Darien/Endymion, and is Serena/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).

Canadian TV actor, 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, as well as the uncut redub of the original anime franchise from Viz Media and Studiopolis, Mamoru/Tuxedo Mask is voiced by Robbie Daymond.

All four of them sound very similar, and it's not obvious to me which one is the best, but from the original dub, I liked Vince Corazza the most. Rino was great for Tuxedo Mask, but a little flat for Darien. Like Tracey Moore, it's a shame he didn't get much time in the role. Toby Proctor wasn't horrible, but I always thought he overacted, and sounded a little too mean as Darien. He had some weird line deliveries too. 
Vince wasn't perfect by any means. There were times when he too had truly awful deliveries (especially in the movies), but when he was good, he had the most balanced performance. He also sounded the most unique. 
Robbie Daymond is alright. He's not my favorite voice from the Viz dub, but he gets the job done. He has his share of flat deliveries, and has difficulties standing out, but he's improving, and there are times when he's really great, especially when he's Tuxedo Mask. He also handles the dramatic scenes well.
Overall, while none of them are perfect, I'd say this is a tie between Vince Corazza and Robbie Daymond.

There's just something about Vince's voice that made me melt when I heard him as Darien. Ughhhh.

All four are good, but I'm gonna go with Robbie Daymond.

Didn't hear that much of Viz but he actually sounds like a cross of Johnny Yong Bosch and Vic Mignogna, still prefer Vincent however

Vincent is the only one I like. The new viz one really is bad

Vincent, hands down.

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...)

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.

Sorry but my vote will stick but he's at least better than Toby

love vincents voice

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

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.

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!

Did Vincent play Alan in like the last 10 seconds?
said at 4:40 AM on Sun Mar 3 2013
@AmandaM6 Vince did voice Alan in the Doom Tree Saga before he took over Darien.
said at 8:47 PM on Sun Oct 6 2013
@AmandaM6 10 seconds? He was Alan the whole time!
said at 5:49 PM on Sun Feb 17 2013
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.

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!
said at 8:50 PM on Sun Oct 6 2013
@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.

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..

@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.
