Michael Yurchak


Michael's performance was more natural and realistic-sounding, and it expressed Jet's cocky, immature personality well (though I still find there's something slightly off about it). I felt Jason's was too throaty, high-pitched and similar to his Usopp voice (which is, for those unfamiliar with One Piece, not a good thing). I do think he was slightly better in Zero Gravity, being less annoying, but then it sounded more like a gravelly Sonic, and a bit too "evil".

both voices are annoying but Jason's using his usopp voice which was terrible and makes me mad just thinking about it! So Michael gets my vote. But I think Todd haberkorn would be pretty godd at Jet.

Zero Gravity remedies this for the most part. Once I realized that take existed I instantly switched off from Woodpecker Yurchark.

Going with Jason Griffith,

Michael Yurchak makes Jet sound like a dork
said at 5:35 AM on Thu Aug 21 2014
@anthonysea Jet is a Full Grown Hawk not a Chick, Jet is the Leader of the Babylon Rogues. I'm with you about Yurchak, hoping Jet eventually gets a New Voice Actor who A) Voices another Character like the Other Rougues and B) Does a Better voice for Jet, close to Griffith's, and not sounding like Jet has a Speech Impediment.

Roger Craig Smith would be a Better Jet. With Yurchak, Jet seems to have a Speech Impediment.

@CuriousUserX90 that's not a bad idea at all. I heard Roger Craig Smith in the show Clarance and his voice in that show sounds like it would be a perfect Jet voice.
said at 7:02 AM on Mon Jun 23 2014
@TrueMyriad According to StephenKux when he did his Impression's Video, Yurchak would be better for voicing Bean the Dynamite with that voice sort. PS, the presence of this person brings 2 Michael's into the Cast Today (one nicknamed).

I personally love Jason's take on Jet and I wish he'd stayed because his delievery with some of the lines were side splittingly funny. and I also love it when he yells "be quiet!" that kills me with laughter and I don't know why either.

Jason Griffith: http://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m32f85unf11rpn610o4_400.gif

it seriously sounds like his voice is cracking and it's really annoying. This might be Griffith's worst role, aside from his usopp voice (yes, I've heard it).

Michael Yurchak: Much better. It definitely sounds like the voice I would think of when I look at the model. I can't believe he has higher praise here than on youtube. Don't believe me? Here's a link to Stevenknux's "My Opinions on Sonic Voice Actors: Jet" video.

So I'm voting for Yurchak.

Honestly, I think Michael sounds a bit too higher-pitched for my tastes. Yeah, Jason sounds more forced, but I think it's slightly better fitting and not as annoying, in my honest opinion. Think I'm gonna give it to Jason here.

No questions asked.

Jason sounds more evil than Michael which I like. It really brings out how Jet really wants 2 win.

@HienFan I listened to it on the Usopp compare (haven't voted on it and no plans on doing it any time soon) and it was pretty good.

@Ross123 Surprising considering his Usopp is one of the most despised voices in that dub

@HienFan When you say that, I'm surprised he's winning the Usopp compare.

@Ross123 Jason isn't winning, Sonny Strait is

I'm just surprised you like it on Usopp as well
said at 1:45 PM on Sun Oct 12 2014
@HienFan Seems I wasn't paying attention to who was winning on the compare since I only went to hear the voice.

Considering how Jason has 19 votes on the poll, I find it kinda surprising how you find it surprising that I liked his Usopp.
said at 3:03 AM on Wed Oct 15 2014
@Ross123 19 is average(believe me some got less than 5) for 4Kids One Piece but considering the comments I heard of THAT Usopp(too comedic not serious) everywhere well
said at 9:07 AM on Tue Oct 21 2014
@HienFan I'm guessing that the 4Kids cast aren't doing to well on One Piece compares. Well, that's if you compare them to the Sonic compares.
said at 7:53 AM on Tue Nov 18 2014
@Ross123 I believe there's a minority out there who hates 4Kids to death somewhere(DA alone is not a safe place to proclaim you ever like 4Kids One Piece far as I know)

It's funny how people gush for them as Pokemon but when it comes to One Piece it's ZOMG FANDUB QUALITY

I guess we're lucky Odex never dubbed Sonic however unlike One Piece though
said at 10:55 AM on Tue Nov 18 2014
@HienFan I hate to break it to you but I don't watch One Piece. I just went over there to listen to Jason's Usopp since you mentioned it.

Should have mentioned that earlier, shouldn't I?
said at 6:13 PM on Tue Nov 18 2014
@Ross123 I know, just an interesting note about 4Kids in general
said at 10:42 AM on Wed Nov 19 2014
@HienFan Just making sure is all. Gotta feel bad for the 4Kids though. No one deserves to be hated on just because they aren't great VAs. Dislike would be the better term in my opinion.

The only time I hate on celebs is when they do douche things all the time. Bad voice acting isn't on that list for me.
said at 11:47 PM on Tue Dec 16 2014
@Ross123 Unless it's Pokemon then it's the other side of the yard(stares)

Though if I'm not mistaken some of the hatred is from them dubbing some very low quality mockbusters like Ratatoing(look up Mike Pollock's page and listen to the one clip and weep at how ugly it is)
said at 10:15 AM on Wed Dec 17 2014
@HienFan I did as you said and my conclusion is... ok, it's not as bad as you made it out to be.

I found Mike's clip to be average & generic. And that's about it. Also I haven't seen the movie.
said at 8:24 PM on Wed Dec 17 2014
@Ross123 I was exaggerating but I heard of that film from a link on Ratatouille's page on TV Tropes
said at 9:06 AM on Thu Dec 18 2014
@HienFan Well considering Mike's performance wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. I have to say the exaggeration was necessary.

Jet is the most unbearable version of Jason Griffith's voice besides Ussop, Shadow and Sonic. With Sonic it only gets to being mildly annoying. Shadow whenever he tries to emote he doesn't sound like how he should as a dark brooding character. Jet is basically his Ussop multiplied by 10. With that said Michael Yurchak is annoying but he fits the character really well.

Now that I think about it, I really don't care for Jason's Jet, which is more or less Sonic doing a (bad) impression of a parrot. >_>

If Jet, Wave, and Storm came into existence when Ryan Drummond voiced Sonic and the San Diego cast was voicing the Sonic characters, who do you think would voice them?
said at 11:32 PM on Sun Jun 30 2013
Jet: Not sure. I actaully picture Ryan Drummond doing a decent job, even though he also voiced Sonic. Of course, I'm saying this because Jason played Sonic and Jet, so I think Ryan would play Sonic and Jet.
Storm:Marc Biagi.
Wave: Lani Minella.

They're both annoying, but I'll vote for Michael, mainly because he doesn't sound incredibly throaty like Jason did. True, Jason's voice is more fitting for the character, as he is voicing a bird, but Michael doesn't get on my nerves as much as Jason.

I like Jason Griffith but I hated how Jet sounded in the first Sonic Riders. His voice was like nails on a chalkboard, I couldn't stand it when he opened his mouth which sucked because I loved his design.

I didn't play Sonic Free Riders but I have to say, Michael's performance osunds much better. So now I don't really dislike Jet as much as I used to. If they do put him in another game, they should definitely keep Michael to voice him in my opinion. Jason is better off doing Shadow or Sonic. :)
said at 11:26 AM on Wed Apr 3 2013
They are both very grating to me. You know who should voice him? Steven Blum, using his lighter voice, like Wolverine in The Superhero Squad Show.

Jet(My version):
Before I started to comment I’d like to say thank you to Nirvana (Your opinion is true), and for the editor. My opinion Michael do have had a lead until nowadays have more realistic voice characterization with my (Jet) personality in the game even it slightly of the course and sound funnnier too even Jason was on the lead in the last 1,8 years since Michael . Jason was on the lead because he taken many position of sonic and some characters including me so we used to hear and made decision the voices that Jason were perform is the real deal. But who knows that other actors could do out of the box including Michael or even other actors for the next time.

Jason was pretty bad in Sonic Riders, even as a kid I was like "Dude, that's just Sonic doing an impersonation of a parrot." He did a lot better in the sequel, though, but I'm going to give it up to Michael for sounding more natural and funny.

Michael sounds more natural. IDK what people below are talking about Jason getting better by Zero Gravity. Sounding less cringeworthy and just making your Sonic voice lower pitched doesn't make you "good". Not hating the guy, just recovering from the nightmares his laugh brings me.

Jason Griffith sounds way too much like his Sonic voice and its way too squawky. I get it that he is suppose to be annoying but I feel like I want to rip my ears off.

Michael Yurchak is annoying but this is the kind of annoying that fits in this case. He has that cockiness that Jet is known for. An interesting case is that Jet's characterization changed as well as his voice since before he was willing to cheat but now he wants to beat Sonic in a clear match. Really creates a different perceptive of Yurchak's Jet.

@Torak Upon thinking about it, Jason sounds like a mix of Usopp and Sonic, plus it's a little forced.

Micheal sounds annoying, but that's what Jet is meant to be, in this case it actually works. So changing my vote to Micheal Yurchack.

Before I say my thoughts, I figured I point something out to those who seem to be forgetting something. Both voices make Jet sound annoying, but that's what he's supposed to be. Jet is basically a character who's egotistical and wants to outwin Sonic. Thus, he'll act cocky and selfish around a lot of people, especially Sonic. So for those who say either Jason or Micheal sound weird and annoying, well...that's kinda the point of Jet's character. Now, I myself do not like Jet period, but I do know that he was created to be a rival that can be a nuisance to everyone.

Now that I got that out of the way, I feel Micheal Yurchak does a better job at making Jet sound like he should be: cocky, annoying, and egotistical. Since Jet is supposed to be a nuisance and overconfident about himself, I think Micheal accomplished doing that very well. He does make Jet sound a bit nerdy, but I think it was done to show how Jet can be a loser sometimes (as shown in the Sonic Riders games), so I think it suits him.

As for Jason Griffith, his voice was...also good for Jet. I don't prefer this voice though because Jet sounds like a kid going through puberty. It's also similar to his Usopp voice, which was not a good voice to begin with. While Jason does do a good job making Jet annoying and cocky, he does it in a more unsettling way, so I don't really like it much.

While both voices are good for the purpose they were doing, I prefer Micheal's voice because it's a bit more realistic and not as embarrassing to listen to as Jason's.

I don't really care that much for Jet, but I gotta go with Michael Yurchak. While I don't think Jason is a bad voice actor, his voice for the character is just annoying to me.

Okay, I guess Griffith isnt winning the Jet The Hawk poll anymore. Oh well, I musnt deny the fact that there indeed more people who prefer Michael over Jason. But Jason will always be the true Jet to me, but I also like michael just as much. But you know I never whined about Jason being replaced. Michael's Jet voice sounds no different from Jason's so there's no point argueing over two VA's who makes a certain character sound the same unless you're obsessed.

Jason's is more squaky annoying, but here's the thing... it WORKS for Jet. Michael's is cool sounding to say the least, but is DEFINITELY far off from what I think Jet would sound like, He seems more suited for a parakeet

Jason Griffith is the better voice for Jet it's how Jet should soudn in my opinion a cocky, foolish, dramatic character who always wants to get his own way Jason gave him the high/husky voice I liked it a lot quite laughable really XD he gave Jet the positive and fitting tone arrogant pushy person I think he voiced Jet better in Zero Gravity because At most parts he had a low tone most of the time at some parts he would be high but a little less than last time and other parts they would be mixed and fused together making Jet sound nice and more natural and therefore much better so Overall I Jason Griffith better

His best performance - Zero Gravity

Michael Yurchak uh I didn't like his voice for Jet there were a lot of problems it was more high pithced than Jason in ZG, he sounded too whiny and extreme like something tasing bitter and tough, The acting was meh and uh but it didn't really change anything I could still hear that horrible voice he also sounds quite older somehow not exactly like a 14 year old but still uh it was annoying too...

I like Jason Griffith best for both Riders and ZG :)

@Truesonic Funny thing is, I thought of Darrel Guilbeau for Jet's possible new voice (Think Masamune Date from Warriors Orochi)

Also, it's because in Warriors Orochi 2, Taigong Wang has Jet's JPN voice, Daisuke Kishio. And Wang sounds like Masamune in that game along with a few others.

Instead of a sqwaky bird voice, it'd be cool if Jet had a cool young smooth arrogant voice(considering Jet's actual age, which is 14.)

I don't really care for this character, but I detested Jason's voice. It sounded to similar to Sonic's and reminded me of the dreadful days of One Piece.

Jason Griffith I think did a better job as Jet. If memory serves correct, Jet is supposed to sound like an annoying, cocky (arrogant), and young person - er, bird. Jason was able to get the correct tone for him and Michael makes him sound older and... not as cocky.

Imma go with Jason Griffith on this one. Though I don't mind his newer voice too much, I think it makes him sound nerdy and wimpy.

Jason Griffith's Jet voice sounded best in Zero Gravity to me though. It's hard to choose because I like Free Riders Jet's voice more than Sonic Riders but not as much as Zero Gravity and Griffith voiced in Riders 1 and Zero Gravity. lol

I think it's SUPPOSED to sound like his Ussop voice since 1: Jet is a technically a "pirate" (see the pic of his ancestor in his office in pirate clothing) and 2: He's a hawk but looks like a parrot (also a famous trait of pirates) so I'm not suprised he talks like a parrot. (Also I just noticed "pirate" and "parrot" sound alike. Wow...)

I don't know what SEGA didn't just go ahead and make him a parrot. lol

Still, Scratch had a squaky voice too and no one seemed to mind. o0

Well, jet's new voice sounds very strange... It reminds me of last night. Jet the hawk and Vector the crocodile are my top favorite characters. When I found out vector was on Sonic Free Riders, I got very upset (I don't own Kinect, so I can't play it.). I feel like E-mailing SEGA about making it for Wii. If they did, it sure would increase their sales.

Suggesting that Jet is entirely one of the terrible characters in the Sonic universe, he would eventually be criticized most likely because of his voice (the same thing went to Silver!)... Honestly, I like both voice actors and how they have their works: While Jason uses the rebellious, yet annoying mood for Jet, Yurchak makes him to be a cocky and generic character. I'll go for Jason, though... He's the voice actor I first heard!

P.S. Michael Yurchak is also the voice actor for Tobi in the english dub of Naruto Shippuden... It was thought to be Scott McNeil, but if you already know, that was a lie.

P.S.S. Yurchak is the complete same persona of Jason Marsden: very quirky and sometimes annoying.

Whatever's the better voice, you'll have to decide on this one.

Jet the Hawk is a terrible character anyways. Michael Yurchak's voice is really what Jet is, generic and cocky. Griffith's really isn't much different just a lot more annoying.

@NCZ it would be considering Jason was born and raised in Ohio and moved there to study theater

A bit ironic that you say that, because Jason Griffith is a New Yorker and Michael Yurchak isn't.

Too bad the crowd disagrees Jason practically created the voice Michael makes him sound like a whiney new yorker

Michael also kind of sounds whinny (sorry for not including this in my last comment)

Michael sounds like James Marsters, or something, the guy who voices Nermal on Garfield! Jason portrayed the character perfectly, his sqwacky voice protrayed Jet's behavior and personality well, michael's was just a little annoying

@AMT They're both annoying, but that's what Jet pretty much is anyway...

IMO I didn't find Jet annoying in Zero Gravity as Griffith did well there.

Jason's Jet just fit him Michael doesn't show any emotion and doesn't really bring thrill to the character for me ether thetruevoice. I believe Jason about Sega wanting him to do the role (which im glad about), but if they did-WHY DID THEY REPLACE HIM???? Any answers?

Kind of ironic that Jason is winning, because when the game came out, everyone was complaining about Jet's voice...

I'm going with Jason he made Net a fun character not only that but he stated in a chat back in 2009 that SEGA wanted him to be Jet they said after listing to his other roles this was spacificlay what they wanted him to do Michael dosent thrill me he just dosent have the feeling Jason had

Jason Griffith's Jet voice is basically his Usopp.

I know he's a bird, but it sounds a bit overdone. In fact, Jason's Jet sounds a lot like his Usopp.

Is it just me or does Yurchak sound a lot like Dee Bradley Baker?
