E-123 Omega

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of E-123 Omega with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Sonic the Hedgehog

E-123 Omega is the last in the E-series of robots created by Dr. Eggman. He has a deep hatred for Eggman, who locked Omega up in a cold, dark room for years, and now wants to destroy all of Eggman's other robots so he can be the best. He's a member of Team Dark with Shadow and Rouge.

Omega was voiced by Jon St. John in his debut appearance, Sonic Heroes. When the cast was replaced, Maddie Blaustein became Omega's voice from 2005 until her death. However, during development, the lines she recorded for Shadow the Hedgehog were replaced by Greg Weber. It was necessary to redo Omega's lines, but since she was unavailable, Jeff Kramer at Webtone Productions in San Francisco, California. Her voice was, however, heard in the finished product of Sonic 2006. When SEGA began using a Los Angeles-based voice cast starting with Sonic Colors, Vic Mignogna took over as Omega.

Thanks to the special effects, Jeff Kramer sounds very similar to Jon St. John, so it's hard to choose! I also like how Vic Mignogna's Omega sounds slightly different from the others, making his more unique. The weakest performance is in Sonic 2006. The lack of vocal processing makes Omega sounds stiff, and even though he's a robot, it just comes off as awkward since he could emote well in previous entries. Clearly, the vocal processing was a factor in this, because with it, I'm sure Maddie would've sounded a lot better. At the end of the day, they're all great. (Sonic 06 aside...)

Jon St. John and Vic Mignogna are both fantastic, Vic sounds sooooo identical to John, it's pretty darn shocking.

Jeff Kramer's good but nothing special.

And oh Maddie, you are a great actor but not good as Omega thanks to the poor voice direction of 06. Maddie sounds stilted and very robotic.

I can never get enough of Jon St. John's voice as E-123 Omega. This easily goes to him.

Vic does a great job as well.

Jeff is also good.

Maddie sounds too stilted and robotic.

1. Jon St. John - His take sounds the most intelligent IMO.

2. Vic Mignogna - He sounds almost EXACTLY the same as Jon St John does! Very nice job from Vic here.

3. Jeff Kramer - He's alright, however his delivery isn't particularly convincing to me.

4. Maddie Blaustein - She just sounds too stilted as Omega for my liking. A shame because with much better vocal effects and direction she could've NAILED this.

The funniest thing about E-123-Omega's English voices is how much lighter they get over time. It's like the exact opposite of what they did with Knuckles.

Jon St. John set the standard for the others to follow, and did it the best to boot. He gives E-123 Omega the most amount of personality, and his speech doesn't sound as slowed down as his successors do.

Vic Mignogna sounds like a deeper version of Jon St. John in the role, really.

Jeff Kramer is pretty good, but was a bit higher pitched than the other two.

Poor, poor Maddie Blaustein...one can only imagine how she would've sounded without that generic robotic voice tone, and lack of vocal processing. The worst part is that judging from her other roles, it's clear she had the range capable to perform the role well, but bad direction led to this weak performance from her.

A'right since i stick with Jon St. John being E-123 Omega, Vic however are close second, just because he added more personality to this character far more these other 2, which never actually add this much other than the fact that he's a robot.

Omega's more unique than that and that's what both Jon and Vic did it best and either of them could expand more to what to expect from Dr. Eggman's greatest creation of the E-series.

He is Omega, the ultimate E-Series robot! Worthless consumer models and meatbags mean nothing to this automaton. They're a load off his back. Activation ready!

Jon St. John's deep, monotonous voice works greatly for Omega. He doesn't sound nearly as slow as his successors either, which I feel helps to further demonstrate whatever personality this character's got. John's unforgettable performance as E-123 is one of the highlights regarding Heroes' voice acting alongside Marc Biagi's Vector the Crocodile. Vic Mignogna has little in the way of material to judge his take properly, but for what he was given, he's capable of showcasing a decent amount of likability and boasts similar pacing to Jeff Kramer's portrayal. Speaking of Kramer, he was a suitable replacement for Jon St. John, though he could've done a better job had he received superior material to work with; to say the least, Jeff Kramer is good, yet generic and he also wasted his talents. Last and unfortunately least there's the late Maddie Blaustein who I know had what it takes to deliver a better performance. The different program utilized did her absolutely no favors, making Blaustein come off as a stereotypical machine that just experienced a few malfunctions within the system. I get that Omega's movements in Sonic 06 were relatively clunky to compensate for the change in software, but this is no change I can get on board with.

Jon St. John is most affirmative while Vic Mignogna also did well.

Jon St John is the best Omega voice mainly because he provides a lot of energy and spunk into the character which made him a loveable killing machine in Heroes.

He makes him sound robotic but at the same time, he also provides a lot of strong personality to the character which really stands out and make things more balanced. Omega really shines in Heroes (his debut). He's full of loveable sass, attitude, determination in killing Eggman and hilarious snipes in general and this is all thanks to Jon's wonderful delivery. His dialogue in Heroes is just brilliant.

He expresses the boastfulness and violent side of Omega brilliantly. You can also easily notice that out of all the Omega voices, he had the least distortion (alteration) which was awesome.

Jeff Kramer is a close second. He sounds almost very identical to Jon and he continues to portray Omega's violent personality very well in Shadow. Omega is still the same as he was in Heroes and I genuinely enjoy his dialogue in the story and expert mode. He was a great replacement for Jon (and cover for Maddie). Wish it was a permanent one.

Poor Maddie. They really didn't do her justice by modifying the software/effects in 06. Definitely didn't do her or Omega any favours. On the bright side, at least she got to shine a bit for the last time in the Winter Olympics.

As for Vic Mignogna, I don't see anything unique or special about his take on Omega. I'm really not keen on the distorted and deep voice. It just sounds way too deep and bland for my liking. I don't like it very much.

1) Jon St John
2) Jeff Kramer
3) Maddie Blaustien (Winter Olympics)

Jon was the best, because he played Omega as more than a robot, he added a bit of humanity in his voice. Because Omega is more than an emotionless robot, he's a lovable jerk to his teammates and thinks all flesh beings are inferior. His lines in Heroes are gold just because of his delivery. His performance also has the least distortion so you can figure out what he's saying.

Vic Mignogna and Jeff Kramer are tied, though I like Vic a bit more.

Maddie is pretty bad.
said at 1:32 PM on Sun Apr 12 2015
@BlazeHeatnix You seem to be basing Omega's personality off of his appearance in the comics. The real Omega cares deeply for his teammates and would never be rude to them. He does not see organic lifeforms as inferior, though he does see himself as the most powerful robot ever and is determined to prove it.

Also, listen to Maddie's take in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. You'll be surprised.

John St. John: Sounds fantastic. Became an Omega fan not just because of how awesome Omega is but this voice was a hell of a lot of fun imitating and listening too.

Jeff Kramer: Still really fun to hear. In some ways more so honestly. I'm really liking his voice actors.

Maddie Blaustein: She sounded great in the Winter Olympics. She has a huge list of convincing male voices under her belt. It's really impressive stuff. It's too bad they changed the software for her 06 voice. And yes, may she rest in peace.

Vic Mignogna: Sounds a lot deeper. I really enjoy that too. A bit like he has water in his system, which I'm oddly okay with. This is going to be a tough choice.

I suppose I'll have to choose John since Vic has only done Colors DS and the Olympics so far as Omega. I need to hear a more adamant speaking role from him.

1-: John St John: The coolest voice for the character, and he had a lot of passion in the delivery too. He also had the advantage of having the best effects for the role and most material, hands down.
2-: Jeff Kramer: The voice is literally the exact same as John's, but the delivery feels a bit more stilted.
3-: Vic Mignola: Incredibly unique and could become my favorite with more material, but it seems that isn't happening anytime soon, unfortunately.
4-: Maddie Blaustein: Poor Maddie, they really screwed up the effects on this one. Would it really have been that hard to continue what they were doing, Jeff Kramer sounded fine in Shadow's game. RIP Maddie.

Jon St John: Nice start for omega. cool robot tone, but it sounds too monotone to me.

Jeff Kramer: better voice. It does sound slower, but it's no longer monotone.

Maddie Blaustine: Could either be the same as Kramer (Olympics) or it could be the worst voice actor for omega (I blame the voice directors of sonic 06). R.I.P.

Vic Mignogna (cool name): this guy, along with the editing software, make omega sound more distorted and much cooler.

My favorite voice for omega has gotta be Mignogna.
said at 7:05 PM on Fri Nov 22 2013
I dunno, I think all of Omega's voices are good. Yes, I like Maddie's performance as of late. John's and Jeff's voices are so similar and kind of blend together but I think Vic's reigns supreme because the deeper voice makes Omega more menacing which fits his personality being thirsty for Eggman's blood.

I'm going to update my thoughts on the Omega voices since this comparison has changed since the last time I said my piece.


I prefer Jon St. John the most out of all of them. The voice sounds robotic, but pretty cool at the same time. I feels this voice has the best balance of different robot-like character interpretations for me, so that's my reason for choosing Jon.

Vic Mignogna is the 2nd best for me. While it sounds similar to the other voices, it has a unique sound to it that makes Omega more intimidating then before. Pretty impressive voice overall.

In Shadow the Hedgehog (voiced by Maddie Blaustein and Jeff Kramer), Omega's line delivery was a little too stilted for my liking. I know Omega's a robot and all, but the way the lines were said sounded a bit too unnatural for me. Otherwise, this voice was pretty good. I'm glad these clips were simply recycled in Mario and Sonic Winter Olympics, and Sega didn't reuse the Sonic 06 voice effects for Omega (which I'll get to below...).

And here's the last voice to bring up. The vocal effects in Sonic 06 made Maddie Blaustein sound very awkward and bland. It's a shame Sega practically butchered Omega's voice and personality in that game. But at least it was a long time ago and probably won't be brought back again.

So that's it. I still favor Jon St. John in general, but the other voices (Sonic 06 aside) had some good in them too.

I like Vic Mignola a lot. He sounds like the most unique Omega voice without deviating too much from how he should sound ( looking at you, 06 Omega!) It's a shame Vic hardly had any lines. I heard a rumor that Omega may end up being retired like Big. John St. John and Jeff Kramer are tied for my favorite Omega voice. They sound exactly alike, with the same effects and everything, but Jeff speaks a little slower. Mddie is obviously my least favorite, but I don't neccesarily think it's her fault. I think they messed up editing her voice.

Overall, I voted for John St. John over Jeff Kramer for speaking a little faster and being the original voice. Like most of the new cast, Vic Mignogna could easily become my favorite if I hear more from him, and Maddie is my least favorite.

@Mephilesthelight358 granted Jon St.John's voice as Duke Nukem was as flat as a robot's voice. Besides, do you know who you are really comparing Jon St. John to, this is Vic Mignogna, the voice of Broly, Edward Elric, Nagato, and millions of others, he has an infinite array of voices to choose from for Omega. Actually, think about it, compared to Jon St. John, Vic Mignogna is a legend in voice acting and must never be turned down.

@Mephilesthelight358 maybe he needs more time to adjust to the role. Or maybe SEGA needs a new voice director.

I like Jon St. John the best. Jeff sounded very close to Jon so he's good. Maddie really got dragged down by Sonic 06, she sounds like Gamma in Sonic X and that is not a good thing. I put Vic in second place because he was slightly more original than Jeff or Maddie. By the way, Maddie isn't a choice on the poll for some reason.

Okay, I'm a little confused.

So it turns out Andrew Rannells never voiced Omega period, but Jeff Kramer did in Shadow the Hedgehog?

Does this mean he did Omega's voice in Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics also? Maddie Blaustein is still credited as Omega for that game on this site.

Hope this gets sorted out for good soon.

@BlueSkySlash Here's how it went down.

Maddie Blaustein originally recorded Omega's dialogue for Shadow. There were some technical issues and she was unavailable for rerecording, so Jeff Kramer filled in for her. This explains her comment below; she probably wasn't aware that her dialogue had been replaced (or she was referring to being cast a few years ago).

These recordings, as well as some of Maddie's, were used in Winter Olympics.

Gonna rate Jon St. John First here. He has the right kind of delivery and tone for the character, it sounds robotic while still being quick and snappy when appropriate.

Maddie Blaustien's performance was very similar to Jon St. John's and in terms of character, fit very well, even if the vocal processing did not.

Andrew Rannell's omega I thought sounds much more stiff and awkward, not to mention slow in terms of delivery.

Vic Mignogna I'm going to place last, as his tone is so strange sounding and velarized, and stiffer than Rannell's.
said at 10:48 PM on Sun Dec 30 2012
all of them sound exactly alike in almost every single way so this is probably one of the hardest compares for me. I can't really go with Blaustein because she didn't really do that well in 06 and in the Winter Olympics she only got one line. I never really cared for Jon St. John's performance let alone cared for Sonic Heroes voice acting in general. It's either between Mignogna or Rannells and while I do and still do enjoy Rannells performance, I prefer Mignogna just due to having the most interesting of the voices, somewhat low and similar to Jon St. Johns but sounding similar to Rannells, getting a good mixture of both.
said at 6:29 PM on Fri Dec 14 2012
Jon: No comment
Andrew: A little too much emotion, but better than Jon.
Maddie ('06): Not convincing
Maddie ('09): Much better than her previous voice
Vic: Phony-sounding, but in a good way

Overall, I'm going to go with Vic Mignogna, with the late Maddie Blaustein as a close second.

I feel that Duke Nukem himself does the best performance as Omega. He really sounds like a big, huge robot that does have a robotic feel while at the same time doesn't sound flat or monotonic.

Andrew does a good job, I do feel that the slower voice of Omega does ruin his performance a little.

Maddie was weak, doesn't really sound like a robot and it felt really slow. A shame since she had a lot of potential with her wide range but it wasn't really her fault. Thankfully, her next performance was a huge step in the right direction.

Vic only had a couple of lines to say so I can't really comment on it. I'll probably update it if he shows up in another game.

I would vote all
Pretty even

But if you hear the tone/pitch each one gives.... I would vote

1 Maddie Blaustein 06
2 Andrew
3 Vic

If all 3 were combined, it would be perfect

I can't really say much because they all sound the same... except for Maddie in Sonic 06, when they apparently forgot to process her voice.

@RabidSonicFan I'm thinking they meant to do that. The lack of processing combined with Omega's stiff, clunky motions make it apparent Sega wanted to have him be more "robotic". He doesn't have the effect in the Japanese version either, while he does in his other appearances.

In Mario and Sonic, Maddie sounds very identical to Andrew Rannell's Omega. So it's a split between Maddie's M&S performance and Andrew's.

@Belial Edge In general, all of those all-star voice actors/actresses are extremely talented in the area, but at the same time, they have been re-used for anime and video games for too long now... At least that's what I think. This is a newer generation, right? What I suggest is that some of the dubbing companies such as Studiopolis try to find new, decent voice talent, no matter how hard the job is... But if other people want to continue living off of how cheap the companies can be, I suppose that's fine as well.
said at 6:03 PM on Sat Jul 9 2011
@Ninjaman15 I TOTOALLY agree! Thats exactly what I said! They're very talented but theyre pretty much taking over all animated voice roles, and it gets kinda boring, cuz u recognize the voices and theres only so many voices they can do! Thats partly the reason i was pissed when they replaced 4kids, they had some very unique voices, very good voices that most ppl dont get to hear a lot if animated series. For example, I like Laura Bailey, but when she plays little girls, she's always has that bratty girl voice thats so easy to point out now since I hear it so often, that it kinda bugs me...

One thing to note to all those that don't like Maddie Blaustein's voice...

Omega's seiyuu Taiten Kusunoki did a similar tone in the JPN versions of 06, so don't think that new voice tone was only exclusive in America here.
Still, like with the ENG voice, they switched it back.
said at 8:26 PM on Mon Jun 27 2011
1. Andy - He's improved manifold from Gamma from Sonic X
2. John
3. Maddie - The sample in Sonic'06 sounds terrible, but it got better by the other game. (btw, r.i.p)
4. Vic - good, but sound less robotic than the other ones.
said at 7:33 PM on Thu Jun 23 2011
I'm not sure about Vic like said before while the voice is less altered I don't think it's unique If Omega appears in future games and we heard this voice more often It would sound a little deep I just don't like the effects they used for Vic's Omega voice :/

Perhaps they can tone down the effects a little more in the next game Omega appears in I don't think it would work hearing him sound like this in future games (no offence to Vic or anything He's a great actor) ._.
said at 8:18 PM on Wed Jun 15 2011
With the exception of the '06 voice, I think all 4 of 'em did good. However, if I were to rank them...

1. Vic Mignogna - What I like about his voice is how he can make it sound really similar to the original three, but still put his own spin on it.
2. Jon St. John - Being the first voice, and a good one at that, I had to rank him pretty high. He set the mold for the other voices.
3. Andrew Rannells - I was surprised when I found out that was him in "Shadow the Hedgehog". He sounds a lot like Jon St. John and is MUCH better than that horrible Gamma voice in "Sonic X" (although I blame the voice director on that one).
4. Maddie Blaustein - Her voice in "Sonic '06" was pretty terrible, but I think she sounds much better in "M&S". RIP

1. Jon St. John - His Omega voice was deep, monotoned, and naturally paced.
2. Vic Mignogna - Despite sounding different (due to the Nintendo DS's limitations), his voice most closely matched Jon St. John's, in my opinion.
3. Andrew Rannells - His voice was similar to Jon St. John's, but was slightly higher-pitched and slower to sound more robotic.
4. Maddie/Adam Blaustein - Much like Rannells in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, but not very fitting in Sonic 'O6.

Man, I have no idea how to rate voices when it comes to cold, monotone robots. To be honest, any one of them wouldn't make much of a difference to me. I'd probably only leave out Maddie Blaustein in '06 for sounding too much like Orbot in Unleashed.

The only reason I ranked him the lowest though is because... well... he didn't really do much in that game.

Okay I've decided liek I said before they are all good aside from 06 I like all 3 VAs Maddie,John and Andrew they alll sounded similar so in the end they are all great aside 06 (It wasn't Maddie's fault then) I'm leaving Vic out because I'm not sure if the voice should be altered like that :L

I'll have to go with Jon St John since he was the first but hats off to Maddie and Andrew for doing great too They are all great in the end.

Andrew did a great job with Decoe in Sonic X and Maddie did a great job with the President in Shadow and the Guardian in Riders.
said at 7:46 PM on Sun Apr 24 2011
I voted for Maddie for 2 reasons:
1) Out of respect, may she R.I.P
2) I think her voice for Omega in Mario and Sonic was very similar to Jon and Andrew's and it was a great redemption. So while she sounded just like them, I gave it to her becaude people probably wouldn't because of how they edited her voice in 06.

But truthfully, all except the 06 voice, fits Omega great! I wouldn't care who voiced him out of these 3! =D

Jon St. John, Andrew Rannells and Maddie Blaustien (in the Olympic games) sounded roughly the same, and it's because of the vocal effects really. All 3 of them made Omega sound like an intimidating robot with an aggressive personality. I guess out of all 3 of them, I'll go with Jon St. John, but Andrew and Maddie were also excellent sounding thanks to voice editing.

I really don't know why Sega thought it was a good idea to change the vocal effects of Omega in Sonic 06 (as well as his personality). Omega's voice sounded much more robotic and boring in that game compared to before. Thankfully this version of Omega was VERY short lived (rightfully so...). I know it wasn't Maddie's fault, but her voice in Sonic 06 is the worst sounding one of all.

Vic Mignogna's voice is interesting. It's a bit different than the early voices, but it still makes Omega sound tough and aggressive like he should be. It sounds somewhat human this time around also. I'm glad Vic's portrayal is good enough.

With the exception of the Sonic 06 voice, all of these voices are great, so there's not much of a point for me to rank these. But I'll go with Jon St. John on this one.

@Anonymous, @AMT

I agree it's still too hard for me to choose I mean I reallly Liked Jon but I also like Andrew a lot and he did a great job both Shadow and Sonic X while Maddie on the other hand got back to basics in OWN and she was really good It's too hard for me....And Like I said Before I'm not too sure about Vic's Omega voice being less altered But I'll have to see how it goes in the future

I won't vote on this

I'd say it's a tie between Jon St John and Andrew Randells, and Maddie (The OWG Version)

other than maddie's performance in sonic 06, they all sound similar. but I liked Jon and Andrew best since they were originally now 4 kids then. Vic is awesome, he deepened Omega's voice and it sounds even more bad-ass. I like it. I like them all

Is wasnt maddie that sucked, it was the voice editing to her voice that sucked. If you go listen to the jap dub of sonic 06, you'll hear omega's actor, the one he's had since heroes, had his voice editing software changed to. It was so the voice would fit with Omega's slow, robotic movements in that game. And as you can see, Maddie's voice was GREAT for Omega in OWG, and actually I think she was the best.

I like all Omega's V/As except the 06 version

But all voices will sound almost the same most of the time so it doesn't really matter who voices them due to the vocal processing software though there will be some differences

John brought a great voice for Omega he had more emotion and was really tough and dramatic I liked Omega's character in Heroes XD

Andrew Rannels sounded exactly the same as John but with a few small changes but it didn't matter he was just as good as John shame he left that quickly But I wish him well in what he's doing now as he left 4Kids 5 years ago...He also voiced a few minor characters in Sonic X

Maddie Blaustein I er think It was a mistake to use that type of voice in 06 It sounded really different compared to others it was a bit too robotic and bland I wasn't too fond of it it didn't sound like how Omega was in Shadow or Heroes but I'm glad they got back to basics in the Winter Olympic Games so therefore her second performance was best if they stuck with the same routine then it would have been much more better

Vic Mignogna....Umm uhh I don't know If i like this one....The difference is he is less altered and more low..Uh I have the DS Version of Colours I also listened uh Uh yeah he sounds more like the others except the voice less altered I dunno Um I think I prefer Omega with a more altered voice I dunno i guess they did that with Omega so much in the past I wasn't really sure I think I'm the only one who prefers Omega with a more altered pitch voice but um I dunno we will see what he brings in the future XD...I'm just not too sure

I'd call it a tie between Andrew, Maddie(MASATWOG version) and John

I'm leaving Vic out because i'm not sure

Uh...I'll just uh give a Tie to them all XD

John: I can't believe this guy did Big the Cat. He does capture the robot monotone pretty well.

Rannells: Huh. I couldn't really tell the difference between him and the other.

Blaustein: First performance, terrible. Too human-sounding and not enough intimidation. Second performance, back to basics.

Mignogna: Vic, you've done it again. Great job.

In the end, I can't really give the edge to one voice or the other. Too similar and the distortion doesn't really help in the deciding factor. It's a tie, basically.

It's more likely that it was Blaustein in Winter Games. She's the one credited, and Andrew Rannells quit 4Kids a few years ago. Personally, I think she recorded some lines as Omega before she died, and Sega used them for that game.
