Today on the TMNT VC section while a while back we have done a VC for the Mutant Snapping Turtle Tokka here is a VC for the Mutant Wolf... RAHZAR! We shall start off with the 2nd TMNT movie in which alike his aforementioned Snapping Turtle buddy Rahzar was voiced by Frank Welker. While anyone whom is remotely familiar with Frank's speaking roles are probably familiar with the idea of him doing a lower, gruffer voice for a antagonistic role but due to Rahzar's childish personality does kind of make it a interesting change of pace here. Frank's voice for the role was suitably gruff for a big burly mutant wolf but Frank's performance did suit Rahzar's infantile mentality rather well.

Alongside Tokka, Rahzar appeared for one episode in the 80's TMNT series and since they couldn't get Frank Welker to reprise the role for these two Townsend Coleman takes over the role here. Now don't get me wrong I know that unlike the 2nd movie Rahzar (& Tokka) are substantially smarter and have a more adult-like mentality but Townsend's voice still felt a bit strange for the role here. (For starters at least Rob Paulsen did make more of an effort to sound like what Frank did in the movie while Townsend apparently did not. Granted Townsend's Rahzar voice in general is not necessarily bad but it does seem to be a slightly odd choice for Rahzar.) But to be fair in Townsend's defense while his Rahzar voice and growls are a little iffy his performance certainly wasn't bad as it did fit what the show was trying to go for here at least. Overall I am definitely going with Frank Welker first and Townsend Coleman at a decent second.

2k12 Rahzar reminds me of how Foxy, from Five Nights at Freddy's, would look if a live-action adaptation was done.

I wonder if Kevin Michael Richardson would make a good Rahzar?

last time I checked, frank and Clancy were tied with frank the only one highlighted. It's good to see that Clancy Brown is the winner. But seriously, he's a much better Rahzar.

1. Clancy Brown-fittingly scary voice
2. Frrank Welker-Fit his version of the character
3. Townsend Coleman-evil version of his "Tick" Voice"

Clancy sounds the scariest.

Gonna change to Clancy. He has the potential to change his voice as the show goes and sound scarier and more threatening too. Throw in a few growls and he could be werewolf like.

Does Clancy remind anyone else of Scott McNeil? I swear he sounds almost exactly like him, but maybe I'm just crazy.

@Nightmare Crusher You're not crazy. I hear it too.

@Nightmare Crusher Same here. He did it with the Demon Cat in Adventure Time too.

@Nightmare Crusher No, I hear it too.

@CatsTuxedo I think he also did that with Yakone from the Legend of Korra.
As well as Buck Rockgut from the Penguins of Madagascar.

I like Clancy Brown the best. I think he makes the character sound the most sinister. And as awesome as Frank Welker is at the voice, the fact that they gave him "baby" lines is just weird in hindsight. Still incredibly awesome, though.

@VGAfanatic - It's weird but I think it fits what kind of character that version is (very dumb and naive)
said at 9:00 PM on Sun Mar 17 2013
Frank Welker is clearly better.
