Heihachi Mishima

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Heihachi Mishima with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Tekken

Heihachi is the owner of the Mishima Zaibatsu, the sponsor for the King of the Iron Fist Tournament. Heihachi is a Mishima-style karate master with a cruel, extreme personality; when his son Kazuya was a child, he threw him off a cliff declaring that he would make it back up, were he truly his son. Heihachi will do anything possible to achieve his goals.

He is one of the few characters to appear in every Tekken game, and has even made cameos in some of Namco's other franchises (including an appearance as a bonus character in the PS2 version of Soulcalibur II).

John Paul Shepard was maybe a little too old-sounding, but was acceptable aside from that. KMR, though epic-sounding as always, was a little too deep. Jamieson Price has to be my clear favourite. Strikes a great balance; not too old-sounding and has a very cool deep voice, a lot like the late Daisuke Gori.

I can't decide between Price and Richardson. Both are epic.

I think Chris Rager should play Heihachi since the guys who played him in the Japanese version also played Mr. Satan. Anyone else think so?

@OmeedMirVA He was one of my first ideal choices to playing Heihachi at one point.

Jamieson Price is the best one here. It's the closest match to Gori & Ishizuka's voices for Heihachi.

@Shaun Ince 1.5 years old, but I find that in terms of depth:



Daisuke Gori
KMR (though he is a larger guy with much more resonance due to his size)

@huzaifa_ahmed Yeah, that actually makes sense.

Jamieson Price's take on it sounds like the way he does Lu Bu.

I have something that I like about all of them, but I'm voting for Jamieson Price.

KMR needs an updated clip... I'll see if I can find one.

Is Vitor Stone an alias of Kevin Michael Richardson?

@pete This has actually been disputed for quite some time now, and I do believe Victor Stone could very well be a KMR alias. However, there's absolutely nothing anyone could find that can confirm this.

A couple of days ago, TheVengeanceKnight found something that proved it is indeed KMR and that he used "Victor Stone" as a pseudonym.

@Anicomicgeek I'd like to see that evidence trail.

I did read the interview where he said it was him doing the vocie once, but I can't seem to find it now.
said at 12:18 PM on Thu May 19 2016
@ninjinister The comments have since been removed, but it was on a podcast where KMR spoke about the name.

I really like Victor's voice here, but Jamieson just fits better.

@Dark Kuja
Come to think of it, I think Clancy would make for an interesting Heihachi.

Same. Guess we can call KMR if we ever need a Spawn back-up.

Jamieson Price is a little bit like the current Japanese Heihachi. Victor Stone is a little more like Daisuke Gouri...and Kevin Michael Richardson apparently. o_O Both are my favorites here.

As much as I love Jamieson Price's voice, I think Clancy Brown would make an awesome Heihachi.

Is it me, or does Victor sound like Kevin Michael Richardson?
