Onslaught is a tactical military strategist and Combaticon leader. He is one metamorphin' dudicus.

Of these VAs, I think S. Marc Jordan did the best job of making Onslaught sound intelligent and strategic.

S Marc Jordan then Steve Bulen.

Terry McGovern's sounds too much like his Wildrider.

I think Onslaught should have a strong militaristic leader approach to his character and I feel the only two here who get it down right are Travis Willingham and S. Marc Jordan.

The late S. Marc Jordan has an accent English which I feel fits the characterization well of a great strategist and leader. He sounds classy and commanding which is awesome.

Travis Willingham plays him a bit more gruffer than I would expect, I might have preferred an English accent but it honestly fits Onslaught to a tee, I wouldn't mind him voicing Onslaught again, provided he uses an accent.

Steve Bulen does a good impression of Jordan's Onslaught, though at times he sorta feels like he could make a better Shockwave.

Terry McGovern who I love as Launchpad McQuack doesn't even try for an accent, if anything his almost southern accented approach feels like he should be filling in for Tony St. James's Brawl.....if he added a bit more gruffness of course.

Brad Davidorf is my least favourite, he sounds too flamboyant and cheesy..."Let's Get Ready for an Onslaaaught".

Overall my vote is going to S. Marc Jordan.

BONUS: I'd love to see Alistair Duncan voice Onslaught, imagine an English sounding Senator Armstrong, then nobody would **** with this Combaticon!

@Autovolt If Travis Willingham Added the Pseudo-English Accent from his Mastermind voice to his Take here, I would change my Vote to him within a Heartbeat .

Not sure who to choose between Travis Willingham and S. Marc Jordan. Travis has the deep voice that one would expect from a huge militaristic robot truck, yet I do really like Jordan's more strategic-sounding voice. I think it's quite cool and not what you might expect from the guy, but I think it works nicely.

Travis Willingham and S. Marc Jordan for sure. Travis makes his Onslaught sound more like a military strict commander and Jordan's is best at making Onslaught sound strategical and intelligent. Brad Davidorf's sounds like he was trying too hard.

Does Travis Willingham sound a bit like Sean Schemmel in his clip, or is it just me?

@MilanTheVillain01 I remember hearing a similar comment on the Sideswipe VC, which is another character Travis Willingham voices in both WFC & FOC.

I'm gonna go with Travis Willingham for Onslaught. I felt his was the best out of all of them.

Travis Willingham, no contest. Honestly, none of the others are memorable enough/leave an impression on me. Terry McGovern would probably be second because he manages to convey a good "militaristic"-tone to his performance, but the others? Meh.
