EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Tekken VC section we have a little something for the original Capoeira practitioner of the Tekken series... EDDY GORDO! We shall start this off with Tekken 5 in which Marcus Lawrence was the one to voice Eddy Gordo here and I must say he was a rather natural choice for the role. Marcus' voice for the role was good as it had a moderately low voice which did work for the role as his performance was a dramatic one that felt rather natural as a young man who is vengeful but does try to do the right thing. So in other words Marcus' performance as Eddy is probably one of the better performances in Tekken 5.
In Tekken 6 Eddy was one the characters whom had a new English VA that is generally known in NA Animation and/or Anime English dubs and in this case Roger Craig Smith gets to take over the role here. However unlike many of those other characters Roger didn't get all that many lines since while Eddy did have a role in Tekken 6's story but he didn't have all that many voice acted lines in which needless to say puts Roger at a bit of a disadvantage. But to be fair for what little Roger had in Tekken 6 at least his voice for the role was decent enough so to make a long story short Roger Craig Smith's work as Eddy Gordo wasn't bad just a bit underused. Overall while neither one of these guys are bad but I will go with Marcus Lawrence on this one.
(Update: DC Douglas voices Eddy in Street Fighter X Tekken and while Eddy may have a bit role in that game DC's work is pretty good. DC's voice and performance do suit Eddy's serious & aloof personality rather well. While DC didn't have much material to work with his work definitely has potential that I would like to see again. While I am still going with Marcus the most DC is not that bad.)
