Voice Compare » Spyro the Dragon » Cynder

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Cynder with sound clips and images.
Cynder is one of the primary characters of the Legend of Spyro trilogy of video games. She first appeared in "A New Beginning" as an antagonistic figure whose goal was to revive the Dark Master Malefor. After she is freed from Malefor's control, she plays a protagonist role alongside Spyro as an atonement for her actions in the first game.

EDITOR'S OPINION

As a whole, I find the Legend of Spyro trilogy to be rather unengaging in terms of writing and characterization, and it feels like one of those instances in voice acting media where actor were cast based on the bankability of their names rather than distinct or memorable performance styles. While Summer doesn't have a whole lot to work with concerning her character, she does have a good enough villain voice that's somewhat pleasant to listen to. On the other hand, Whitman and Ricci just don't leave that much of an impression due to the genericness of their performances (which is a shame considering that I liked Whitman in Avatar). My favor's going to Summer here, though it isn't really saying much.

I've never played the games, but I like the appearance of 2008 Cynder the best, and Mae Whitman's voice the best.

This is especially hard considering that all three renditions having varying amounts of screentime and all of their personalities also shift into different gears. But in terms of what fit best to a character, I honestly am going for Summers here. She left the biggest impact on me.

Cree is evil Cynder while Mae & Christina are good Cynder.

I'm going with Christina as she got the bigger part of Cynder.

1. Cree Summer - She just has a very good voice for a villian.
2. Mae Whitman - Sounds like she's putting a bit of effort into Cynder's voice. She sounds distressed yet somewhat caring.
3. Christina Ricci - Horror to my ears, she sounds like a spoilt little girl, and through her expression in her voice, it makes Cynder sound selfish and annoying.

Christina Ricci was and always will be the best voice for Cynder. I wish that they would've kept her for Skylanders.

This ones a little hard for me, I think they were all good.

Cree Summer does a nice evil voice for Cynder,
it sounded slightly seductive and a little flat at some points, but still was good.

Mae whitman also did well: she was calm, relaxed and was also natural, it really suited Cynder's character well.

Christina Ricci did the same as Mae, only she had more gentle and kindness in her voice, also fits well with Cynder's character.

All in all, I'm going with Christina on this one, her voice sounded the most suitable for Cynder, and her performence was slightly better than the other two IMO.

I actually liked all three voice actresses who voiced Spyro's beloved, Cynder, but Christina Ricci's is my favorite one on account that she gives Cynder a more gentler and kinder part of her personality.

@partymonster411 If she has a different voice in that game, we can add it when it's revealed. We don't have to wait for future media before making a VC.
