Voice Compare » Sonic the Hedgehog » Silver the Hedgehog

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Silver the Hedgehog with sound clips and images.
Silver the Hedgehog is a white hedgehog who came from the future to kill Sonic, who in the future would cause the awakening of a monster called Iblis. His best friend is Blaze. Sonic developers SEGA liken him to Trunks from Dragon Ball Z.

Special thanks to AMT for the sound clips.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Quinton Flynn shows some promise. With what little material he's had so far, his Silver sounds really youthful and upbeat, which makes sense considering the direction the character is going. His voice and acting both sound more natural to me than Pete Capella, which gives him the edge. That being said, Pete portrayed serious Silver quite well in '06, and even sounded like Trunks.

Bryce Papenbrook would make a perfect voice that improves the voice Pete Capella made.
Grant George would make a perfect voice mixing Pete Capella/Quinton Flynn AND Daisuke Ono's voices or going all out doing a Daisuke Ono voice.

Both are good but Pete does make Silver sound annoying sometimes. But, I mean no disrespect to him as it is still pretty good. However, Quinton is my favorite because he makes Silver sound more mature. :)

Pete Capella: Good start, but one thing that makes me cringe is that his voice can be raspy, especially in sonic 06. I also hate him for the line "IT'S NO USE!" but as for other lines.......

silver: "Wha-chow! It's like a kick in the nuts!"

yeah, it's not gonna work for me.

Quinton Flynn: This is much more natural with less rasp. Also, he puts more emphasis on the last two lines in the free riders clip than Pete Capella in zero gravity.

So Quinton Flynn Has my vote.

These two cut it close... but I'm going with Pete. I think that Pete could capture that serious side that Silver had, and I guess that Quinton hasn't had a really serious speaking role for Silver yet. I do like them both, though.

@Shiny Raticate - I doubt we're gonna see Quinton really shine as Silver since Sega refuses to let the Sonic side characters have a more playable role if you will
TrueMyriad
said at 6:40 PM on Tue Oct 22 2013
@HyperVoiceActing then again SEGA has an awful tendency of ignoring it's side characters for Sonic and Tails. Look as Sonic Free Riders, Silver and Blaze were the only playable characters(not counting the Avatar)in the game who weren't in the story, and Big and Omega as well as Espio and Charmy weren't in the game, instead, Vector is on Team Rose, and a random robot(who ends up being Metal Sonic) is on Team Dark . Then Sonic Colors(Wii) where none of the characters were there, and for 2 player mode, we had recolors. Then in Sonic Generations, Omega and Big were the only characters from Sonic Colors(DS) who didn't re-appear even though Kyle Hebert(Big's voice actor) was included in the credits. And for Sonic Lost World, Amy and Knuckles do nothing, contribute nothing to the story, and have no reason not to be in Lost Hex. Let's face it, SEGA is really terrible at treating all of it's characters with respect.
NCZ (Admin)

@TrueMyriad About that, Sega's actually been making a conscious effort lately to put the focus more on the main cast and pushing the supporting cast aside, since one of the main criticisms of the Sonic series in the early-to mid 2000s was that they were introducing lots of new characters who were allegedly taking the focus away from Sonic. The seeds of this were planted in the Adventure games, but most feel it only became a problem with Heroes, X, and particularly Shadow's game. After '06 happened, they've been taking steps to reduce this stigma.

@HyperVoiceActing You're right. If only he had more of a speaking role in Generations! But it was a good performance.
TrueMyriad
said at 7:14 AM on Sun Nov 17 2013
@NCZ well they don't need anymore characters, all they have to do is give the characters more speaking roles and purpose in their own roles in the games. I am pretty sure SEGA is just using a new game to introduce a new character, when they need to just use the villains/characters we already have. In fact, we still haven't seen Dark Sonic return at all, and some characters like Shadow, Silver, Blaze, Knuckles, Amy, Big, and Omega that need to return but with what made them awesome. Omega, Big, and Knuckles are combat based, yet ever since the recent games, they never seem to do anything, and Silver, Shadow, and Blaze, characters who were in depth in story and character interaction are practically throwaway characters, and Amy was going up to the lines of a femme fatale until she became a damsel in distress. It's a serious need of having your characters telling their own story, but now they are the minor characters of their own existence.

Pete did very good at his innocent side. I have to admit he sounded a bit goofy here and there but it was just plain cute. Quinton does a really good determined side. He sounded pretty cool at L2012 OG when he said, AW COMEONE NOW!!! But I give this one to Pete.

Why does everyone go for Quinton. His voice is too overrated, like Sonic Unleashed. Pete is the original and helped us get some new memes. Quinton didn't help us get new memes whatsoever.

@Mephilesthelight358 The original Metal Sonic was Gary Dehan. I don't think anyone outside of a very small amount of people actually think he was the best. The original isn't always best. Also, memes are a horrible way of judging a performance as they come as a result of it and don't enhance it in the slightest. This example is even worse because, "It's no use!" became well known because it was annoying.

@Mephilesthelight358 Today I learned not only that the idea of people having different opinions boggles the mind, but also that something is worthless if they didn't spawn internet memes that will be endlessly regurgitated until they are no longer close to funny.

@Mephilesthelight358 You know, after looking at all your comments on the voice actors, I can say one thing about you: You're biased. VERY biased. Your nostalgia blinds you to no ends, and memes don't mean jack squat in the world of voice acting. I'm sorry, but it's the truth. Not only that, but I've seen you outright insulting and attacking others for having contradictory opinions, which is just wrong.

Sad, simply sad.

@Gojira9310 Well, I have had a harder life than everyone else. Which makes me short-tempered. I have my favorite voice actors. When people start saying that my favorite voice actors suck, like Bill and Pete, they start pushing my buttons. The only reason all this madness is going on is because they pushed my buttons too far. Now you know and from now on, I won't do that anymore. I promise. Sorry for the confusion.

@Nightmare Crusher What you said about the original not being the best all of the time is true, but for me, a majority of them are the best, mostly specifying Ryan, David, and Marc, who voiced Sonic,Shadow, and Vector.
Mephilesthelight358
said at 9:49 AM on Wed Jun 26 2013
@NCZ Well, the "It's no use" meme is not at all the only reason why I prefer Pete over Quinton. I mean, Pete also gave Silver a good tone in all the games but Sonic 06. Quinton did okay but lacked something that Pete had.
TrueMyriad
said at 11:26 PM on Fri Jul 5 2013
@Mephilesthelight358 the reason people chose Mr.Flynn is because he sounds natural for the character, the only reason Pete is liked by everyone is probably because he sounds way too nasally and nerdy, making an annoying voice for the character(no offense Mr.Capella).

Sorry everyone, but I find Pete Capella in the role to be really irritating. Way too whiny and high pitched. To be fair, he sort of sounds like a 14 year old, so I'll give him props for that. Quinton Flynn, on the other hand, is my favorite, even though he hasn't had that many lines. Quinton's Silver is acted well, and shows more range than Pete. So yeah, Quinton earns my vote.

Pete has the voice, and while Sonic 06 wasn't a great way to showcase any of the talent behind the 4Kids cast (to say the least), the voices were okay. Too bad his acting sucks. :-/

@PurpleWarrior13 Quinton essentially took Pete's voice & perfected it.
He made it sound more natural while still retaining the core essence of Pete's voice.

Plus, Quinton took out all the things that made Pete's voice so bad. Gone is the high-pitch, the whiny attitude, the harsh, scratchy overtones & the forced acting of Pete "IT'S NO USE" Capella. & in his place are the sweet, soft, smooth & delicate vocal tones of Quinton "METEOR SMASH" Flynn.

Now that I've given them another listen, I'm switching my vote to Quinton. Even though he hasn't had nearly as much to work with, the role fits him like a glove. He sounds so... natural; he's slipped into character so easily. With Pete, he did a pretty good job, don't get me wrong, but something about his acting in '06 was a little off. It's probably a direction issue considering that the VO in '06 overall was pretty wonky, but considering how little material Quinton's got, it's hard not to be impressed by him.

Pete I think does a much better job just due to not only him actually being developed and having a whole story based game and cutscenes to flesh out a character works much better than only talking during gameplay like what Flynn did.

I believe Silver is suppose to be a young character. Peter does a good performance but I kind of get the feeling that he sounds a bit older than he should be.

I can't really comment too much on Quinton seeing as he didn't really have a lot of dialogue as Silver. Maybe once he is in more games, I'll give a proper comment on him.

To me... I would take Silver's voice more seriously if Quinton made Silver sound more like Axel from Kingdom Hearts. Since he does the voice for that character as well. Idk, Silver sounds way to childlish. I know hes 14 and all but they try to make him sound like Trunks from DBZ.

Johnny Yong Bosch would've made Silver into an Itsuki Koizumi Expy, since he and him both have ESP AND are voiced by Daisuke Ono in Japanese.

I need to hear more of Quinton Flynn's take before I throw down a vote but I like how it sounds. Pete Capella sounds like a younger Eric Vale Trunks...and I don't like his Trunks. >_>

Considering how I've heard more roles from Flynn than Capella, I would personally think Quinton gets my vote... But at the same time, Silver is impatient, stubborn, somewhat immature, and has an overall bad design in my eyes, so I thought Pete attempted to score additional points... Does anyone get the strange feeling that this thing you would name a 'Hedgehog' look more like a drug-related sort of thing? I mean, what was SEGA trying to pull with how his head looks??? Some people even said that it looked like a weed plant, and poked fun of Silver, earning the obnoxious title of 'Pothead the Porcupine'. It's really my opinion, and if you all at BTVA don't seem to care, then that's cool... I just don't like Silver because of how annoying both voices can be at times. But if I actually voted, then I could've wanted to pick Quinton Flynn... Got it memorized? (Hope you get this reference, it should be technically easy to figure out)... Ninjaman out, peace!

Another really close one for me. I'd have to go ahead and say Quinton Flynn, so far. I haven't heard enough of his Silver voice yet to be certain.

The voices are very similar with one another, so it's a bit hard to pick one over the other. But noneoftheless, I have to choose, so...

1. Pete Capella

I slightly prefer this voice since Pete started the voice (essentially) and might have created the basis for Quinton Flynn to follow. His acting could use a bit of improvement in some areas, but for the most part he does the role perfectly fine. Since Silver is a naive character with little confidence in himself, I think Pete knew how to handle his personality well. So I suppose he wins this.


2. Quinton Flynn

He's a very good sound alike for Pete's voice of Silver. It would be nice to hear him in more games (depending on if Silver appears more often though) so I can be sure on how good Quinton is. In any case, he sounds like he's as good as Pete was with the role, which is a good thing that came out of the big voice change of 2010.

I think both are good for the job, but I'll go with Pete overall.

Although I have no preference over the two, Its sad that Pete didnt had much speaking role with Silver, the only two games he got the speaking roles are, Sonic 06, and Sonic Rivals 2. Other than those two, his other roles as Silver were simply voice clips. But hey, I'll try not to complain too much, besides, Quinton Flynn sounds 100% exactly like Pete. If the 4kids cast were to return, they should just like, continue voicing the anime, though. They should continue with Sonic X, but even I know that's never gonna happen D:

@NCZ

Perhaps the number of Main games Silver appeared in Sonic 06 and Rivals 2 being the only games where Pete got to have more serious lines and dialogue whereas Winter Olympics, the first rivals and ZG were just lines but I'm grateful he got to do at least something though not as much :|

I was really upset he was replaced as he lives in LA where most of the new cast were found (located) :( oh well I'll have to accept it's over now

Though I wonder how Flynn will do in Generations or other future games?

Pete Capella was the best Silver voice for me :D he gave Silver an attitude filled with different types of emotions he sounded enthusiastic and more natural he made Silver sound more caring and depending he really cared about the character he also brought Strong passion and feelings for his Silver voice I really liked his work though It's a shame he didn't get to voice Silver much for more serious and main parts and roles I'd say he did great on every game but my favourite performance from him was Sonic Rivals 2, 06 and MASATWOG :) I still miss him

Now uh....Quinton Flynn uh....He's okay but he's lacking a few things He does sound similar to Pete but a bit more deeper and kinder o_o I like how how he has transformed the voice a bit more different but still within the range Pete had but there are a few things missing We need to hear more of him in future games I hope I get to hear more him and I mean not just in spin offs and small apperances I mean main roles and more serious lines

But Overall I think Pete Capella was the best Silver voice :D

Capella: He certainly has the whole 'moral questioning' thing about him, but at times he can sound whiny when trying to be demanding.

Flynn: Huh. Not a bad choice on that one. He certainly captures Silver's character, but I may need more examples of his. For now, though, he wins.

I didn't like Silver's first VA, or the character, at first but it got more likable the more I heard it. Quinton is a good replacement. I might start to like his portrayal more. We'll just have to see.

@anonymous Saying these two actors' casting is the fault of Sega's entirety is, to make an understatement, a bit misaimed. That would be the voice director or casting, not the whole company.

@jared You're right. As a matter of fact, scratch my last comment on Quinton being a bit better; both English VAs were completely miscast as Silver. They made the character sound at least twice his age. SEGA should've gotten a woman or an actual teenager to voice Silver. I have absolutely no idea what the entire corporation must have been thinking when they picked either of them.

In all honesty, I prefer Pete Capella. It's a shame he was only in a few games, but hey, better than one, right?

Reason why I don't like Quinton for his voice as much is because it's the way Quinton says some of Silver's phrases... It doesn't match up.

Silver's supposed to sound like a young and naive hedgehog. I think Pete hit that spot on and the other just makes him sound... older.

In my opinion I think Pete Capella did the best Silver voice. Quinton Flynn is okay but Silver sounds a bit weird now. like when he said "I am not to be trifled with" he sounded just a little weird, just a little. And Pete sounds more natural. So yea I Prefer Pete. And I'm not saying Quinton Flynn is terrible.

Ugh! Hearing these voices makes me cringe... Me needs to listen to Daisuke Ono's voice from now on instead of these. I mean, most of the newer characters in the Sonic Universe are totally bland and just stupid in my opinion that they don't belong there.

Unfortunately, that's all that's available of Quinton Flynn. Just "samples" instead of dialogue. But if he does get to speak real dialogue in a future game, I'll consider adding a new clip.

Yeah SEGA never made good decisions when switching the voice cast. Not that I wasn't happy when they got rid of the original cast, (they were pretty lame) but the way SEGA did it so abruptly was just wrong and I even felt bad for them. And it just happened again
