Voice Compare » Super Mario Bros. » Rosalina

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Rosalina with sound clips and images.
Rosalina is one of the protagonists of the Super Mario Bros. series whose Video Game debut was in Super Mario Galaxy. Rosalina is the Commander of the Comet Observatory and is the leader/adoptive mother of the Lumas and in the Super Mario Galaxy games she aids Mario and Luigi in their fight against Bowser. Rosalina does considerably resemble Princess Peach though she is taller and has a rather demure personality though she does occasionally show signs of melancholy. While Rosalina is normally a NPC she is known as a very powerful being whom is the protector of the Cosmos.

Today on the Super Mario Bros VC section we take a look at the protector of the Cosmos... ROSALINA! Let us begin shall we?

Mercedes Rose- Mercedes' voice for the role was a rather natural fit for a kind and benevolent goddess and was able to give a good sense of energy in her performance as well. In fact I would even go so far as I kind of wish that Mercedes did get to fully voice Rosalina's lines in the Galaxy games but still it is one of the better examples of the voice work in recent Mario Games.

Kerri Kane- Kerri's voice for the role is alright but it does sound like it would suit Princess Peach a bit more than Rosalina. But Kerri's work on the role is still pretty good nevertheless though and is a decent example of the voice work in the recent Mario Games.

Laura Faye Smith- I admit I do like on how Laura's voice for the role is a bit lower (but not by a lot) and she makes it suit the role rather well. While much like her predecessors Laura isn't given much material to work with but her performance does have a good sense of energy though and its another pretty good example of the voice work in the Mario games.

Overall none of these ladies are bad but I will go with Laura a bit more on this one with Mercedes at a close second and Kerri at an alright third.

In my opinion, Laura is the best. I just like her voice beacuse it makes Rosalina a bit younger and more natural. Hope you respect my opinion.

Favorite Mercedes R. Beautiful speaking voice. Everything else amazing too.

Second Kerri K. Pretty speaking voice. Everything else okay. Younger sounding.

Third Laura S. Really good speaking voice. Everything else high pitched. Almost Peachy.

1st- Mercedes , obviously . She is Rosalina in every freaking way and situation , her voice couldn't be any more perfect or accurate.

2nd - Kerri , again obviously. She literally tried to sound like Rosalina did before , but she added her own touch and made her rather Happier and Joyful , but always in a normal level without forgetting Rosalina is serious and mature too.

3rd - Laura F. Smith. Mixed reactions to this voice ; i mean it bothers me so much the fact that 50% of her lines are Perfect and the other 50% are horrible. She goes too high pitched when is really no needed and makes Rosalina sound girlier and more like Peach , which doesn't really help whatsoever. Nevertheless , i appreciate the fact that she indeed does bring some life to the character , like happiness and such, and she stills tries to make her voice lower at times and her voice sounds Soft and whispery as opposed to Deep (Mercedes) or Jolly and Dreamy (Kerri) , so i guess it kinda fits , just not as much as the former 2. She is still good though , i hope she gets better lines in the future.

It can't have been a coincidence that Mercedes is on the Wii, Kerri is on the 3DS(including reuse) and Laura is on the WiiU unless Laura appears on a 3DS title

I'm so glad her voice in the gameplay and demos for smash is Kerri Kane.

@Swiftie Muggle Wait really? Oh boy...

I watched some gameplay footage of Rosalina in Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and I think they recycled Kerri Kane's voice clips from Mario Kart 7 and used them for her in that game.

@PenguinBoy11 Do note that the E3/Best Buy demo is from January and as such is an old build of the game. Those clips, as well as the clips used by other characters, are most likely placeholders.

@PenguinBoy11 I personally think that Laura Faye Smith will reprise the role of rosalina since Kerri Kane and Mercedes Rose were out of the voice acting cast.
said at 9:18 AM on Sun Sep 14 2014
@PenguinBoy11 Huh. I guess they ended up using Kerri's voice in the final version Super Smash Bros. 3DS after all. It's a good thing too since I'm very fond of her voice.

I like Laura more, her lower voice helps differ her from the other princesses.

I also like that she has a very gentle charm to her but still has enough energy to make her fun

Mercedes is my favourite here with Laura 2nd.

Kerri was just decent.
said at 6:58 PM on Sun Feb 8 2015
@Ross123 That's a bit surprising(Laura as 2nd) since most people have mixed reception over Laura, at first I thought it was strange since it sounded almost like Samantha Kelly's Peach but after some time I really love her take as Rosalina

Though I guess the reason I rate Kerri second(or first before I grew on Laura) at the moment is Mercedes has a noticeable echo I don't like
said at 9:01 AM on Tue Feb 10 2015
@HienFan Even though I don't own a Wii U therefore I haven't played the game. I saw a Let's Play series on it and after watching all those vids, I think the voice started to grow on me.
said at 11:51 PM on Thu Feb 12 2015
@Ross123 I must admit it grew on me the same reason as you said, she's gonna keep cycling with Laura and reused clips of Kerri from what I guess but if Laura had to voice her permanently alone I won't mind
said at 12:54 PM on Sun Feb 15 2015
@HienFan So we share the same reason for getting used to Laura's voice. Crazy world we live in, huh?

But yeah, I wouldn't mind her voicing Rosalina permanently either. But I doubt that'll happen.
said at 6:38 AM on Sun May 3 2015
@Ross123 On the bright side Laura got the better games for the most part at the moment
said at 11:18 PM on Sun Oct 4 2015
@Ross123 Laura's voicing her for three games in a row now... that means... She is officially permanently Rosalina(and the fact Kerri is mainly reused for those two games since she no longer resides in Seattles)

@HienFan She doesn't sound as extremely stoic and robotic as the other two for my reason for the sudden change

Sadly, neither Kerri or Mercedes returned to voice Rosalina in Super Mario 3D World. In that game and as of now, she's voiced by a voice actress named Laura Faye Smith. I don't know much about her and I can't find any clips of her as Rosalina. Hope this helps with updates on Rosalina.

@Jessica Marra Yeah, if anyone can point us to good-quality clips (i.e. with minimal background noise and decent-length soundbytes), that'd be really helpful.

Any parts of this video good?

Is Kerri Kane just a stand-in for Mercedes Rose?

It's just that with Rosalina revealed to be an unlockable character in Super Mario 3D World, I'm curious to know who'll end up voicing her out of the two of them.
said at 12:09 PM on Mon Oct 7 2013
Mercedes NAILED it. Kerri sounds like a cheap imitation.
said at 9:08 PM on Tue Jul 10 2012
Too bad we can't get isolated voice clips from 3DS games, as the 3DS is virtually unhackable.
